If you’ve always dreamed of yelling “Wheel… of… Fortune!” on national TV, prepare to be disappointed. It turns out that the shouts you hear when viewing the show at home are prerecorded — the voices of people you’ll never know, excited about a game you’re not actually watching. READ FULL STORY »

Who do those ankles belong to? How I Met Your Mother is heading into its season finale next week and a promo released Thursday hints at a possible big reveal. Even if the promo is just a big tease, we think it’s high time to get down to business and take some guesses about who will play the mother of Ted’s children. Everyone has their opinions about when and how she’ll show up, but we can all agree that since HIMYM has cast nearly every hot actress under 35 on the show at some point in its eight years, the pickings are getting slimmer. We can’t believe it’s taken us this long to get around to thinking about making some guesses.
But as we make our casting picks, we need to consider what we know so far: she’s got ankles!; she plays the bass at Barney and Robin’s wedding; she was Rachel Bilson’s roommate; she loves that yellow umbrella; and she was once Ted’s student at Columbia.

Rapper Riff Raff appears on the latest episode of One Life to Live, which now lives on Hulu, playing an art dealer named Jamie Franko. For a quick backstory, Riff Raff thinks that James Franco basically got all his inspiration for his role of Alien in Spring Breakers from him, isn’t super happy about it. Franco wrote an essay about how Dangeruss was one of his main inspirations for the role, also says it was inspired by a lot of people. Somehow, Jamie Franko has become the bizarre next chapter of this story. READ FULL STORY »
As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)
Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

Newsflash: Simon Cowell is supposedly interested in booking Jennifer Love Hewitt to replace Britney Spears on The X Factor next season. Yes, that Jennifer Love Hewitt.
On the surface, this idea seems, well, sorta nuts. Despite five recent-ish seasons of Ghost Whisperer, Hewitt hasn’t been particularly relevant since her Party of Five days, and her brief early-aughts singing career was unmemorable at best. (Though you’ve got to admit, “BareNaked” is still pretty catchy.)
Dig a little deeper, though, and suddenly the rumor starts making a weird kind of sense. Hewitt’s certainly as famous as, say, Paula Abdul was in the early days of American Idol. She’s got a reputation for charming self-awareness; see, for instance, how she responded when Slate named her the worst actress of the last 25 years in 2011. And finally, though Hewitt may not be a household name on the same level as Britney, she’s still been working steadily ever since her teen idol days — proving that the cast of 1998′s classic teen movie Can’t Hardly Wait has surprisingly good staying power.
Bad news for men aged 65-80 in the New York metropolitan area: Though 71-year-old domestic goddess Martha Stewart apparently considered joining Match.com recently, she never fully took the plunge.
“I had a longtime boyfriend. That ended a couple of years ago. I haven’t found the next Mr. Right,” Stewart told Matt Lauer during a Today show interview that will air next week. “I was even thinking of going on Match.com!” Even more surprisingly, Stewart said that she wasn’t planning to use an alias or a misleading photo on the site — “I want to do my real thing,” she explained. Anyone else think this sounds like the premise of an upcoming Nancy Meyers movie? (Naturally, Martha’s played by Diane Keaton.)
Why is comedian Paul Scheer recreating classic moments from the original Arsenio Hall Show in a new YouTube series called The ArScheerio Paul Show? There’s really no explanation — beyond the fact that he’s doing it under the umbrella of JASH, an online comedy network devoted to offering all its partners “complete creative autonomy.” You know, just in case they want to do something like this. Weird comedy aficionados Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Reggie Watts, Tim Heidecker, and Eric Wareheim must approve — after all, they’re the “luminaries” who founded JASH.
Though Scheer steps into Hall’s shoes for his remake, the video manages to avoid any hints of minstrelsy — at least, until Will Arnett shows up as a mealy-mouthed Bill Clinton. The clip’s a fairly straightforward remake of Clinton’s famous 1992 Arsenio appearance, but Arnett’s interpretation of Slick Willie’s Arkansas drawl does give it a welcome hint of absurdity. Grab your shades and watch below.
Is sweat comin’ out your pores yet?
Here’s some news that’s good like Sunkist: Important Actor Mark Wahlberg — a.k.a. Marky Mark, shirtless Bush I-era heartthrob — has indicated to TMZ that he’d be willing to reunite with his ’90s hip-hop group The Funky Bunch — a.k.a. Scottie Gee, DJ-T, Ashey Ace, and, most importantly, Hector the Booty Inspector — for a fundraiser benefiting the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
The MTV Movie Awards has always relished a movie parody. If this leaked clip of Rebel Wilson’s “never-before-seen” Magic Mike cameo is any indication of what’s in store tonight, this year’s show won’t disappoint. In the clip, Matthew McConaughey’s (only slightly dubbed) Dallas introduces “Pregnant,” a baby bumped-up Wilson, to the Xquisite stage.
The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) looks on in horrified bemusement as “Pregnant” — decked out in spandex shorts, cowboy boots, a mesh top, and a Mia Wallace-wig – struts out to Salt-n-Pepa’s “Push It” and gyrates. Naturally, the ladies in the crowd go wild. She even gets an unexpected dance partner (hint: it’s not Channing Tatum).
If even Mike warned, “You don’t want to know what I have to do for twenties,” we’re guessing you really don’t want to know how far this gal’ll go…. Check it out below.
