All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

New York magazine’s Vulture blog says Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins may be canceled. VH1 says: it ain’t so.

Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman? Bring on The A-Team movie!

David Letterman is probably sticking around CBS beyond the 2009-2010 season.

Rachael Ray will be yakking about EVOO for a few more seasons.

– And My Name Is Earl might not be done just yet, either. TBS may greenlight 13 new episodes.

Jimmy Fallon‘s Webby acceptance speech: “Thank God Conan got promoted.” Clever.

– And you’ve got to hand it to Fallon and crew for getting Mark-Paul Gosselaar to don his Zack Morris duds. With that crazy ’90s cell phone, even!

Channel Surfing – June 8

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

Weeds premieres its fifth season tonight (10PM ET, Showtime). Check out my interview with Emmy nominee Elizabeth Perkins (also a star of one of my all-time fave movies, About Last Night) at AOL TV.

– Here’s hoping Jimmy Fallon really can pull off a Saved by the Bell reunion tonight. And PS – So happy Zach Morris clipped the ‘do.

– Is Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) alive on Lost? Okay, so then why’s he playing foosball in that new ABC promo? EW.com’s Michael Ausiello has the surprising answer. PS – IGN TV thinks the secret show is Flash Forward.

– More from Ausiello: There may be a Cagney & Lacey reunion on Burn Notice next year.

– Think you’ve got advertising skills? Put ’em to use pimping – ha – HBO’s new series Hung, about a middle-aged guy (Thomas Jane) who becomes a gigolo, and you might win $10,000.

– Cougars are all the rage on network TV, especially now that Erica Kane‘s become one.

Go and Prison Break star William Fichtner will guest star on the upcoming sixth season of Entourage, which premieres on HBO on July 12.

Kathy Bates, Tim Curry and Colm Meaney will star in Sci Fi’s Alice in Wonderland miniseries.

– Uncle Jesse – the Full House one, not the Dukes of Hazzard one – is itching to make a big-screen version of his cheesy, but endearing sitcom, sans Olsen twins and with, oddly, James Franco taking over his role.

Once and Again and My So-Called Life producer Marshall Herskovitz has a plan to radically change up the way TV pilots are sold. He ain’t tellin’ what it is, though.

Justin Timberlake Returns to ‘SNL’

Justin Timberlake, in just two stints as Saturday Night Live host (and several more quick surprise guest appearances), has established himself as one of the show’s all-time best celeb performers, so his return as penultimate host of the 34th season this Saturday night (NBC, 11:30PM ET) makes for must-see (and TiVo)-TV viewing. Need proof? Check out this “Weekend Update” video clip, in which the fantastically talented J.T. hosts the whole show in two minutes:

Meanwhile, Timberlake paired with his “Dick in a Box” pal Andy Samberg to film a series of promos for this week’s episode, which also features Ciara – Timberlake’s “Love Sex Magic” collaborator – as musical guest:

Here’s hoping we might see another “Omeletteville” skit this weekend, or, with a Jimmy Fallon pop-in, another edition of “The Barry Gibb Talk Show.”

What are your favorite moments from Timberlake’s visits to Saturday Night Live?
