Here’s the type of act that’s been making it through to Vegas while you haven’t been watching America’s Got Talent. Delight in the dulcet tones of Aaralyn’s original tune, “Zombie Skin.” I can’t wait to hear her debut single, “How I Ate My Brother.”

'America's Got Talent' react: The American Dream as defined by reality TV #Booty

Mel B’s laugh is infectious. Whenever I felt my interest in this show waning, all she had to do was let out a loud, deep, howl and I was back in. Heidi Klum continues to prove that she’s adorable and lovable. Both new judges have great chemistry with the guys. Everyone seems like friends and everyone’s having fun.

Now, I have to mention Howie. READ FULL STORY

Which shows are 'exploding' in social media? Do you 'explode' onto social media while you watch TV?

I hope you’re not hurting yourself! A new study (DON’T FALL ASLEEP) suggests that social activity surrounding broadcast prime-time this April topped its level a year earlier by 194 percent. That means a whole lotta people were heading over to The Voice‘s “Sprint Lounge with Christina Milian” instead of heading over to the fridge for a snack.

You can read more about the numbers here, but I’m interested in reactions from those of you who never use social media at all. READ FULL STORY

Howard Stern nearly throws in the towel after making a child cry -- VIDEO

Howard Stern had barely broken the seal on his new gig as a judge on America’s Got Talent before he threatened to quit. On last night’s broadcast, Stern couldn’t possibly deny how adorable 7-year-old aspiring rapper Mir Money was. What he could deny was the pint-sized Philadelphian’s talent. And so he did.

Moments after Stern lit up the dreaded “X” of rejection, followed by Sharon Osbourne, Money struggled to hold in his disappointment. He cracked during Stern’s comments, and the shock-jock hurried to the stage to console the little guy while the crowd booed. But Money wasn’t the only one trying to hide his emotions. “This job is too rough for me, I don’t really wanna do it anymore,” admitted Stern. He continued to be upset as he walked backstage, saying, “I’m not cut out for this, man. I’m shaking. I can’t do it, man. I can’t do it.” Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: Farewell Wisteria Lane, hello Howard Stern

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and this week witnesses so many television season finales — including Desperate Housewives‘ huge series finale — that dedicated fans will be looking for ways to fill the void. (Except hardcore gamers, who can likely ignore every suggestion after Tuesday’s release of Diablo III.) But there’s plenty of entertainment to lift your spirits: Howard Stern is loose on the airwaves again, a horrible dictator is dealt some New York justice, and your favorite sitcom couple will cap the week, hopefully on a high note.

SUNDAY
Desperate Housewives series finale, ABC, 9 p.m.

After eight seasons of soapy plotlines that took great joy in killing off characters in the most unusual ways, it’s safe to expect that the last tour of Wisteria Lane will find someone cold. But this final season has been anything but, as the show has been rejuvenated after several seasons of melodramatic hokum. As the Queen song goes, “Another One Bites the Dust,” but Housewives is saying its farewell in style. READ FULL STORY
