No,That’s not Ricky Gervais above, it’s Jason Sudeikis on SNL as the guy who will host The Golden Globes . . . as well as every other awards show, including local flower shows, dog shows and the BET awards, some much more successfully than others.

The SNL writers didn’t do Daniel Radcliffe many favors, as he smiled his way through sketches that should have been funnier (like Harry Potter can’t stay away from Hogwarts). The best was totally unexpected: Radcliffe, deadpan on Weekend Update, as Casey Anthony’s scared-for-his-life dog.

Daniel Radcliffe hosts Saturday Night Live this week. He has already proven he can do more than be Harry Potter – he may not be brilliant at singing or dancing but he’s game and charismatic, and he was the only good thing in the creaky Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

Andy Samberg and Katy Perry were prancing around New York singing carols and doing other wholesomely silly holiday things when they picked up a new best friend, a homeless addict played by Matt Damon as a guy with bad teeth and an odor you could almost smell through the television. Val Kilmer turns up, too. as a mad scientist, but somehow that isn’t such a stretch.

If you want to see Steve Buscemi at his recent best, don’t miss him as the strangely sympathetic and charismatic crooked politician Nucky Thompson in Boardwalk Empire. (Preview tonight's tense, next-to-last episode of the season here.) But he had some good moments hosting SNL last night, in sketches that were more of a throwback to the weird-guy roles he has built his career on.

In her second appearance as SNL host, Emma Stone proved that her great performance last time was no fluke. She's funny, game, not locked into her own image. The best sketch from last night's show didn't take her far from what might have been one of her movie roles, though, as office workers have a good cry over the Adele song "Someone Like You."  You can watch it at the SNL site; keep an eye out for Coldplay. NBC isn't allowing embeds for the "Sad Song" sketch, but it is for the night's other highlight: Jason Sudeikis as the Devil, horrified at the Penn State scandal. Take a look:
