Woody Harrelson hosts 'Saturday Night Live': Talk about it here!

Will the odds be in Woody Harrelson’s favor when he hosts Saturday Night Live tonight? Let’s examine the evidence.

Jennifer Lawrence and Stephen Colbert plan to fight crime together

At this point, Jennifer Lawrence knows how to work a talk show. She sang Christmas carols with Letterman, for goodness’ sake. But her appearance on The Colbert Report was less about what she said (or sang) and more about just having some fun with Stephen Colbert.

During the interview, Lawrence and Colbert decide to become vigilantes; they plan out her future downward spiral, which won’t involve crystal meth because it’s bad for the skin; and they get to the origin of her “J-Law” nickname.

And she loves it.

John Oliver appears as if from nowhere and hosts 'The Daily Show'
