saturday night live'Saturday Night Live Presidential Bash 2008'
(9PM, NBC)
Is it as important as tomorrow night's election coverage? Duh. But it's undoubtedly more fun, as the Not Ready for Primetime Players unspool two hours of very primetime-worthy political skits.

Recent sketches (Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton, Fred Armisen as Barack Obama and, of course, Tina Fey as Sarah Palin) and clips from the 'SNL' vaults -- Chevy Chase as a bumbling Gerald Ford and Will Ferrell's numb-skulled Dubya, for example -- pepper the election eve special.

And there will be some new surprises from the show that's been the go-to series for political satire this season. We'll just be happy to see Poehler's 'Palin Rap' again.
