Several "Saturday Night Live" stars have reprised their political alter-egos for a 6-minute video made by the creators and producers of

With all the set-up of an "SNL" skit, the video shows what could happen if President Obama was somehow able to gather former presidents, dead and alive, into his White House bedroom for a “Presidential Reunion.”

Will Ferrell is back as George W. Bush, Darrell Hammond plays Bill Clinton, Chevy Chase is Gerald Ford, Dan Aykroyd is Jimmy Carter and Dana Carvey makes an appearance as the elder Bush president. Fred Armisen plays the President, Jim Carrey was tapped to be the spirit of Ronald Reagan and Maya Rudolph portrays a dumbbell-toting Michelle Obama. FULL POST

Jay Leno does it again

For the second night in a row, the old/new host of "The Tonight Show" has taken the top spot in late-night rankings, albeit with fewer viewers than he had for his first night back on Monday.

According to Nielsen Media Research's fast national ratings, Leno had 5.8 million viewers Tuesday night, while David Letterman held fairly steady in rankings at 3.7 million (on Monday, he had 3.8 million) and ABC's "Nightline" attracted 3.3 million, versus the 4.1 million who watched Monday.

Leno had the same 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic that he had on Monday.

"Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon pulled in slightly fewer viewers at 12:35 p.m. than he had on Monday as well, coming with a total of 1.96 million overall, but that was still enough to come in at No. 1 in his time slot over Craig Ferguson's "Late, Late Show" on CBS, which had 1.92 million viewers.

'Smokey' makes his move on 'Lost'

Well, now, that's more like it. The last five minutes of Tuesday night's episode of "Lost" was easily the most exciting so far this season.

We even saw some very interesting developments in the alternate timeline, where Sayid's trip back to Los Angeles, California, was to see his beloved Nadia. But this time, she is married to his brother, a man who owes money to some very dangerous people. Sayid, meanwhile, now works for an oil company.

After Sayid's brother meets with an "accident," his debtors take Sayid to meet the big boss, who just so happens to be Keamy, the Widmore-hired mercenary who killed Ben's daughter, Alex in the "real" timeline. Once Sayid dispatches Keamy and his men - proving that the former torturer can still be a brutal killing machine when motivated - he finds Jin captured in a nearby room. For the first time, I truly can't wait to find out what happens there next. FULL POST
