TWO A-HOLES HIT ON BETTY DRAPER: You'd think with November being sweeps, SNL would bring out its big guns in the hosting ranks, especially since there's big stars, but after next week's Taylor Swift show, they seem to be relying on musical guests for the star power--November 14 is January Jones (who has a small part in Pirate Radio) and the Black Eyed Peas (currently at even money for Elisabeth Moss guest appearance), and, no, we won't get the Timberlake episode for Thanksgiving, but instead Joseph Gordon-Levitt (rather inexplicably, since (500) Days Of Summer doesn't arrive on DVD till December, and GI Joe is already out) with musical guest Dave Matthews Band. I doubt either will be bad (though Jones hasn't demonstrated much in the way of comedy chops previously), but they're odd choices, given that you have big names with big movies out in the window like John Cusack, Jim Carrey, Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz (who I wouldn't be surprised to see pop up in a Cougar Den sketch on one of the episodes), and the Twilight kids. (And can we please have Robert Downey, Jr., host either the Christmas show or the season finale?)
