It's been four weeks since we had an
“SNL.” Now the Olympics are done and the comedy resumes.
Jason Segel hosted this episode during
a packed 2011 that saw him star in two excellent movies – “Muppets”
and “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” – and his TV series, “How I Met

TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: “The Devil Wears
Prada” (2006), 8-10 p.m., ABC.
Fresh from college, an idealistic
intern works for the steely head of a fashion magazine. That was the
set-up for a witty novel that was transformed neatly into this film.
Director David Frankel had a perfect
cast – led by Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep – and gave the film
a slick, stylish feel. The result drew Oscar nominations for Streep
and for costumes.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “Smart
Cookies,” 9 and 11 p.m., Hallmark.
On March 12, the Girl Scouts of the
United States turned 100. That's one reason Hallmark did this film
about a reluctant den leader.
Yes, there are a few forced emotions
near the end. Mostly, however, this is a surprisingly witty film; it

contact. Two talented Canadians – director Robert Iscove and star
Jessalyn Gilsig – spark a film that's more fun than preachy.
