It’s one thing to meet that actor who was once in that one movie you liked, but it’s another to meet the folks that taught you how to count. Elmo and Cookie Monster made the trip from Sesame Street to the EW offices to tell us about their new season (which starts next Monday), and we couldn’t have been more excited had it been Johnny Depp sword-fighting with a time-traveling Theodore Roosevelt. In honor of their upcoming slate of guest stars, the two of them took us through their interpretations of some of TV’s biggest shows — including The Big Bang Theory, CSI: Miami, and The Office (which, coincidentally, name-checked Sesame Street in its premiere last night) – and we have to say, Cookie Monster would actually make a pretty good replacement for Michael Scott. Check out the video below and watch as your adult and childhood television viewing habits collide. (By the way, I’m the Muppet in the middle.) READ FULL STORY

As any woman in her mid-to-late twenties can attest, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, or JTT as he was known around the Teen Bop/Bop/Tiger Beat/Tiger Bop/Tiger Teens Beep Bop Ba Doop community, was a big deal growing up. You were either so entirely obsessed with the Home Improvement dreamboat that it was hard to tell where the JTT posters hanging in your bedroom ended and your actual wall paper began, or you had a best friend who did. (I was of the latter category. And as a true testament to how much I love my best friend, I actually accompanied her to see Wild America and Man of the House at the movies. After our parents dropped us off, of course.) READ FULL STORY
While it’s a pretty safe assumption that Jay-Z already knew his beloved was carrying his babeyonce (boy, that won’t get old during the next few months, will it?), his elated reaction to Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement during the VMAs was even better than ours. Watch the moment again (and again and again) below: READ FULL STORY
Texas town allows 11-year-old to be mayor for a day; 'tween abuses power and renames main street Justin Bieber Way
If you’ve ever uttered the words, “That’s the Justin Bieber way!” then you’ve probably just done something very Canadian or in the third dimension. Or you live in the small town of Forney, Texas, where they recently allowed a precocious 11-year-old named Caroline Gonzalez to be mayor for a day — an honor she won by winning a contest on Facebook, natch — and renamed their main street Justin Bieber Way. (Ice Town isn’t looking so bad now is it, Ben Wyatt?!)
Gonzalez told local Dallas/Fort Worth affiliate KDAF TV the reasoning behind why she re-named their main street after that ‘tween pop star in particular: “I just really like Justin Bieber and I thought it would be cool if we had a street in our town named after him.” Fair enough. Honestly, if my town had elected me mayor for the day, in addition to making Dunkaroos mandatory school lunch fare, I definitely would have renamed my street New Kids on the Block Block, so I can’t judge.

The new, summery trailer for HBO’s Bored to Death (returning Oct. 10) contains no scoop, no teasers, no real insight as to what season 3 has in store for us. But here are five gritty Coney Island delights that Jason, Zach & Ted’s Excellent Adventure does offer:
5. Beastie Boys soundtrack
1. Ted Danson drinking a martini on a carousel
What more do you really want out of summer?
Conan O'Brien and Jesse Eisenberg have a Self-Efface-Off. Watch now...or don't, it's cool, they don't mind.
Aww, Jesse Eisenberg. Does your adorable awkwardness know no bounds?
Apparently not, as he competed with Conan O’Brien to decide, once and for all, which one of them is the most meek celebrity in all the land during the first — and last — ever Self-Efface-Off. My money was on Eisenberg going into the event (see: every interview he’s ever done), and things were looking good for the 30 Minutes or Less star right out of the gate. Before the game even started, Coco asked Eisenberg, “Are you ready to do this?” to which he sheepishly replied, “Probably not.” Watch the entire clip below, as Eisenberg and O’Brien field even tougher questions like “What do you think women like about you most?” and the dreaded “How are you?” and find out who the, er–winner?–was.
Who do you think should have won the Self-Efface-Off on Conan, PopWatchers? Now let’s all go give Jesse Eisenberg a great big hug, shall we?
