The premiere of the 34th season of Saturday Night Live was one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the TV year. And, for the most part, the production lived up to the hype. Much of the buzz came from having Baltimore's Michael Phelps, the eight-time gold medal winner at the summer Olympics, as host. Phelps made his acting debut in eight sketches - a demanding load for any comedy rookie - and did OK until losing his concentration in the very last sketch of the night, a spoof of his high-calorie diet.

Sarah Palin says it's a lie. Her press spokeswoman calls it "sick. " Other supporters of the former Alaska governor refer to it as a "hit job" - concocted by Hollywood leftists and the liberal media. Filmed in and around Baltimore last year, " HBO "s "Game Change," won't premiere until next Saturday. But even mostly sight unseen, the two-hour made-for-TV movie about John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign has generated a torrent of debate. Taking on a polarizing figure like Sarah Palin already makes "Game Change" one of the most evocative productions of the year.

With everyone from the TV-awards circuit to Entertainment Weekly declaring Tina Fey the new queen of comedy, the producers of Baby Mama (including Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels) have treated her first star vehicle as a coronation. I love Tina Fey (who doesn't?), but you can start the crowning without me. Playing a variation on the nice, sassy, confused single career-woman that she portrays on 30 Rock, Fey inhabits what should be her comfort zone as Kate Holbrook, a development vice president for a Whole Foods-like company (the wittily titled Real Earth)

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: SCATHING Those fine fellows the Vikings, after an interval of raiding and pillaging seaside villages in Britain, came to think that it would be simpler and just to conquer the territory, and so they did. They did eventually leave, but not without depositing some Old Norse words, like knife , in English.

At New York's Regency Hotel, a half-dozen television correspondents and about a dozen newspaper and magazine writers are milling about, patiently waiting their turn to spend time with Tina Fey. It's a peculiar sight -- no one cares about television writers, yet everyone's eager to grab a few quality moments with Fey. Here's why: Fey's no mere writer. She's the first female head writer at Saturday Night Live, as well as the co-anchor of Update. And now she's written her first feature, Mean Girls, which stars teen hottie Lindsay Lohan and features Fey in a supporting role.

I am feeling better about Barbara Walters since her interview last week with President-elect Barack Obama and future first lady Michelle Obama. She asked solid, informed questions during the session and waited until the very end to inject a moment of fun in the conversation by holding up a picture of her dog and doing some lobbying for the breed as the next White House canine. In fact, I am feeling so good about her, that I will definitely watch Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2008 tonight - and not just because Baltimore's Olympic champion Michael Phelps is one of the people she will be interviewing.
