Kerry Washington will finally get her closeup on "Saturday Night Live," on November 2, show announced a little earlier today. She will (what else) host. No other details from "SNL" but none others really needed: Washington has emerged a major star on a major show, "Scandal,' and this represents the fruits of success (in show business.)  Yes, there has been some noise about "SNL" not recruiting black female comics this season, but this booking would seem to be unconnected: Washington, after all, is hardly a "comic." Meanwhile, Eminem is musical guest, his sixth "SNL" outing.
