Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas kicked off Halloween night—you read that right—and the network is holiday movies 24/7 this weekend. Lifetime is also ringing in the season early. (ABC Family, meanwhile, has to wait for Dec. 1 before it starts its 25 Days of Christmas.) May we recommend:

Stuart, the single Brit looking for love in Los Angeles—or, more accurately, a makeout session with a model— returns to HBO Saturday night with the premiere of Hello Ladies: The Movie. To celebrate the conclusion of last year’s hilarious one-season wonder, we gave star/cowriter/director Stephen Merchant a special romance-themed version of our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below to find who was his first celebrity crush, what song puts him in the mood (and why you never want to put your iPod on shuffle), which movie sex scene made him uncomfortable, and what he considers to be a relationship deal-breaker.

Every week in Sound Bites, EW spotlights the most memorable lines of the week. This week features Jimmy Fallon’s crack on Kim Kardashian’s (butt) crack, Nick (Jake Johnson) addressing the laziness of men in New Girl, and a burn on Arizona State from Dumb and Dumber To. These are the best quotes of this week gathered from TV, film, and more.
Let’s face it: If you spend your days voluntarily staring at a variety of glowing rectangles, chances are you’re probably not much of a daredevil. That said, the things you’re seeing and hearing via those rectangles might inspire you to wish you could change your ways—if only for a few minutes after the movie/show/song is over.
So in honor of Mockingjay — Part 1‘s rebelliously action-packed release this weekend, we’ve posed the following question to our staff this week: What’s the movie/TV show/song/book that makes you embrace your inner badass?
Ashley Fetters, EW.com news editor: I’ll never get over my first encounter with Lara Croft. I apologize in advance, purists: The iteration I loved was Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, not the video-game character. But either way, I think it was the first time I’d ever seen strength and swagger look so damn cool on a woman. Today there are, like, 20 different badass movie women I routinely pretend to be when I’m at the gym (Run Lola Run‘s Lola when I’m on the treadmill, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane when I’m successfully executing 500 one-arm push-ups, etc.), but whenever I need to summon the guts to handle something that terrifies me, the question is still, WWLCD? READ FULL STORY
Last night, The Tonight Show launched a new game. Everyone, meet “Musical Beers”—the perfect crossover between beer pong and musical chairs. And yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like.
To kick off the new game, Jimmy Fallon invited guest Mark Ruffalo, along with Stephen Merchant, out for some very messy fun before very quickly knocking Merchant out of the competition. Yeah, things get competitive.
With only a few weeks of shows left, Stephen Colbert begrudgingly invited one final “liberal lion” guest onto his show for an interview: Jon Stewart.
Jimmy Kimmel’s “Mean Tweets” segment returns with more burns on celebrities, smashing the delicate glass houses of compliments that celebrities seem to live in.
Leave it to Key & Peele to reveal what aerobics videos were really like in the 1980′s.
In a new sketch from the duo, they star as “Flash” and “Lightning” in a live taping of the 1987 Jazz Fit Championships—apparently a competition in which they try to outlast each other on the dance floor. Regardless, when Lightning gets some bad news about his family, things get real.
The great thing about having The Walking Dead cast members stop by when you’re not pressing them for spoilers is they’re happy to tell you anything else you’d like to know.
Case in point: Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), who took our Pop Culture Personality Test and named the movie that scared him even though it wasn’t supposed to (Shrek), the movie he wishes he could watch again for the first time (A Soldier’s Story), and the movie he almost walked out of (Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys).
And, really proving our point, he also serenaded us with some Rihanna. Watch the video below.
