Last night’s SNL started off with the best sketch of the show: Newt Gingrich, President of the Moon, with cameos by Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Calista and a Reaganesque robot. (Everyone except host Channing Tatum.)

You needed more than one DVR to keep track of the three high-profile interviews appearing at the same time last night, each irresistible for wildly different reasons, each dramatic enough to sound like a long-running series. There was Gabrielle Gifffords’ remarkable, touchingly partial recovery shown in all its tough reality and hope, as she and her husband, Mark Kelly, talked to Diane Sawyer on ABC’s 20/20. Meanwhile, loyal Gloria Cain appeared with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News to deny those sexual-harassment charges against her husband, Herman. And NBC’s magazine Rock Center had its first major coup with the kind of interview that makes you want to scream and run as much as watch: Bob Costas did a tough, stomach-churning phone interview with Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State coach accused of molesting small boys amid a devastating university coverup.

Jimmy Fallon revealed a new crop of Republican campaign ads last night, just in time to take advantage of Rick Perry's brain-fail. Or, as Fallon put it in his monlogue, "Turned out that George Bush was the smart Texas governor." His forgetful Perry and cash-poor Michele Bachmann are fun, but the sharpest is his dead-on, already hilarious Mitt Romney impression. The non-Fallon Herman Cain ad is pretty shrewd too.

Jimmy Kimmel may have been the only late-night host with Herman Cain as his guest last night, but he wasn't the only one with Cain in his sights. Take a look at Jon Stewart's typically ultra-smart take.

Remember when Sarah Palin went into that Katie Couric interview expecting softball Mom questions, and came out in tatters? Well, OK “ What papers do you read?” really was a softball question for a vice-presidential candidate, but Palin was in shreds by the end anyway. And tonight, presidential candidate Herman Cain - who has moved from Godfather’s Pizza to The Campaign That Couldn’t Shoot Straight - is scheduled to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live, even while those sexual harassment accusations and murky, non-disclosure settlements are swirling around him. Laugh if you want to, but as Palin discovered, it is a mistake to underestimate your interviewer.
