What’s Hot on TV Tonight – SNL with Charles Barkley and Kelly Clarkson

Saturday Night Live is back … live tonight. That pleases me to no end. I thought we’d have to wait another week or two. Hosting tonight is Charles Barkley, which nearly guarantees us that it will be a good night. The musical guest is Kelly Clarkson, the original American Idol, and I’m hoping she takes part in some skits as well.
