If Los Angeles feels particularly empty on Sunday, that's because every celebrity that ever was fled the west coast's perfect weather for the sub-zero tundra that is New York City. This officially makes Lorne Michaels the most powerful man in showbiz.

Tonight is Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary spectacular, and somehow Michaels has managed to wrangle a guest list that rivals next week's Oscars in sheer star power. Seriously. Try to name a star that isn't going to be there. Even *NSYNC is going to be there (possibly reuniting). And while we're obviously excited to see the likes of Justin Timberlake and Jim Carrey grace studio 8H's hallowed stage for the bazillionth time, the real spectacle will be seeing Eddie Murphy return to the show that made him a star for the first time since leaving nearly four decades ago. 

SNL 40 airs Sunday night at 7 p.m. EST on NBC, so set those DVRs.
