If the writers don’t have a blast with this week’s guest host, SNL should get some new writers. Tonight’s guest host: Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie on Fox’s Empire. Tonight’s musical guests: Mumford & Sons.

SERIES PREMIERE: Netflix unveils Season 1 of Marvel’s Daredevil in its entirety today, starring Charlie Cox as the superhero with a difference. The difference is, he has no superpowers – and, in fact, is legally handicapped, because he’s blind. But he’s also, thanks to radiation from the accident that blinded him as a boy, unusually attuned with his remaining senses, which allows him to navigate through his world, and the world of crime he seeks to oppose, with jaw-droppi

Jordan Spieth burst out of the gate yesterday, registering nine birdies and only one bogey to finish the first round of this year’s Masters at a very impressive 8 under par, earning the 21-year-old the early lead with a first-day 64. The last person to collect nine birdies in one Masters round at Augusta? Tiger Woods, four years ago. Yesterday, however, the closely scrutinized Woods shot a 1 over par first-round 73, tying him for 41st place. So today, Spieth is playing to maintain his lead

I’m not really recommending this show. I’m just pointing out that tonight’s plot involves a murder at a convention of Elvis impersonators. (Or, since there are more than one, would the correct plural be Elvii?) And the thought of that reminds me of one of my favorite episodes of Dabney Coleman’s old Buffalo Bill series, when his TV station was overrun by frantic Jerry Lewis imitators. (One of them being a pre-stardom Jim Carrey.) But I digress. So what Elvis song best sui

SEASON FINALE: After tonight, there will only be 11 monkeys left. Just kidding. That’s not the plot of this show – but the plot, by now, is so convoluted and complicated, time-wise, that it might as well be.

This is golf’s holy week, and the cathedral doors will be open at Augusta National for the repentant to come to the altar. And judging by his performance at the Masters press conference this week, no one is more repentant than Tiger Woods...

Some will tune in hoping for a fairy-tale-type comeback. Some will tune in expecting the latest in an increasing series of poor shots and poorer decisions. But there’s no denying that when Tiger Woods returns to tournament play today in the first round of the 2015 Masters at Augusta, enough people will tune in for viewership to be very high. For more, including when Woods tees off today, see Gerald Jordan’s Crossing Jordan.

In tonight’s new episode, Howard reunites with his half-brother – a newly introduced character played by Matt Bennett, from Victorious and iCarly. Also, and perhaps more shockingly, Amy talks Sheldon into a sleepover.

There’s a murder suspect on the loose in this week’s episode – which infuriates Russ (Timothy Hutton), who wonders if the person who killed his son may be coming for him, or his family, next.
