JibJab says farewell to 2011, Charlie Sheen, the debt ceiling, and Rebecca Black -- VIDEO

It wouldn’t be the end of the year without an animated farewell video crafted by those kooky folks over at JibJab. This year’s targets include: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child; Justin Bieber’s new hair; Anthony Weiner’s member… ship in the club of pols felled by sex scandal; the fake-out Rapture(s); the Kardashian wedding fiasco; Occupy Wall Street; and the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and Borders, and Osama bin Laden.

2011's babes of Twitter

No, we’re not talking about Courtney Stodden, we’re talking about this year’s newcomers to the Twitterverse. Having passed its half-decade mark, the site continues to attract A-listers who have a little time and 140 characters to spare for an occasional rant or rave. So, which celebs got a taste of the dreaded #failwhale for the first time in 2011? Read on… READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011: The Year in Memes

After 2011, will the word “occupy” ever mean the same thing to you again? Can you ever deny the omnipotence of Ryan Gosling? (He’s a gentleman and a feminist scholar!) A Californian taxidermist and a Pop Tart-shaped cat with a catchy theme song suddenly had relevance, and everyday folks like you and me suddenly had a chance for a date with the likes of Justin Timberlake.

These are just a sampling of the most memorable memes to overtake the World Wide Web over the last 12 months. We’ve got one for every month. Check them out after the jump! READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011: Which celebs had the best (and worst) Twitter feeds this year?

A star with a Twitter account is every publicist’s nightmare and every pop culture junkie’s dream come true. That felt especially true in 2011, the year of the unfiltered celebrity tweeter. (We’re looking at you Ellen Barkin, Ashton Kutcher, and Charlie Sheen!) But which stars had the most entertaining — for better or for worse — Twitter feeds of the year? Is it Steve Martin, Seth Meyers, or Elizabeth Banks that deserves bragging rights for the best, thanks to their smart and silly musings? When it comes to the worst, does anyone come close to chronic over-sharers like Kim Kardashian and Courtney Stodden? Check out our rundown for the candidates for best and worst, then be sure to vote for your picks in the polls below and share who your pick is in the comments section.

Ellen Barkin
(@ellenbarkin): Every now and then a  celebrity comes along and discovers that Twitter is a place where they can unleash a torrent of crazy upon the world and, in turn, make us fall in love with the Internet all over again. (We owe you one, Kanye West.) There may not have been a greater Twitter newcomer in 2011 (or ever, for that matter) than Ellen Barkin, who ranted about everything from politicians (she had a choice nickname for Michele Bachmann) to numbers (“I hate even numbers”), and dropped more f-bombs than fellow freshman tweeter Samuel L. Jackson.  Sample, if not quintessential, Barkin tweet: “Wow. Me and my big mouth. I guess I’ll try to find my filter now… Just kidding, muthaf—ahs. Suck it. If you don’t like it don’t read it.” READ FULL STORY

Poll: Will you watch Charlie Sheen's new sitcom 'Anger Management'?

Yesterday EW.com asked why FX would take such a big gamble on Charlie Sheen and potentially order 100 episodes (!) of his new sitcom Anger Management? While there’s no cut-and-dry answer, there is the theory that the network could turn a big risk into an even bigger success. After all, Sheen, for all his troubles, is a ratings machine (Two and a Half Men, his Comedy Central Roast) who still gets attention for his personal life.

There’s still some other looming questions for FX, though. Has Sheen changed for good? READ FULL STORY

You'll lose if you try to dress as a winning Charlie Sheen for Halloween. What should you be instead?


Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and even Pinhead have got nothing on this hell-raiser. Just look at him — high on tiger blood, wrath, and headlines, Charlie Sheen is one of the most frightening(ly hilarious?) figures of 2011. So, as hard as it is to resist being Sheen this Halloween (it even rhymes!), you must not impersonate the “winning” walking punchline this holiday. Why? Well, it’s impossible to score when when you choose the most unoriginal costume on Oct. 31. And, in 2011, Sheen will be unoriginal. In fact, according to CNNMoney, the former Two and a Half Men star is the top choice for costumes this year. READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen in talks for 'Scary Movie 5' cameo. He should drop the 'winning' schtick to truly win.

Charlie Sheen made appearances in both 2003’s and 2006’s spoof fests Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, respectively. Of course, that was a simpler time, before Charlie Sheen had truly become the Charlie Sheen we know now. But now Dimension, the studio behind the wildly successful Scary Movie franchise, confirmed to EW that Sheen is, in fact, “discussing a role” for the upcoming Scary Movie 5. But which Sheen will we see? Or want to see, for that matter? READ FULL STORY

Despite record-ratings for his old show, is Charlie Sheen still winning?

If CBS was worried yesterday about the future of Two and Half Men post-Charlie Sheen, they are breathing easily today. A huge audience of 27.7 million tuned in to see Ashton Kutcher make his celebrated debut on the show’s season 9 premiere last night. But as EW’s Ken Tucker points out, Sheen’s presence still dominated the proceedings — and it wasn’t just because of his character’s demise.

Ridicule Sheen, ridicule Two and a Half Men, ridicule its popularity, but you can’t overlook the role of Sheen’s innate Sheenism in making the show a ratings force. Though Kutcher wields his own supersized off-screen persona and brings his own brand of humor, it remains to be seen whether he can replicate the easy on-screen chemistry with Jon Cryer and Angus T.  Jones that made the show successful.

Charlie Sheen sets Twitter ablaze. It's like March all over again!

During last night’s pushing-the-boundaries-of-taste Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, comedienne Amy Schumer delivered a low-blow at the man of the hour, as well as his Two and a Half Men replacement Ashton Kutcher: “You’re just like Bruce Willis — you were big in the ’80s and now your old slot’s being filled with Ashton Kutcher,” she joked.

But Schumer wasn’t the only one to hit Kutcher where it hurt on Monday night. Even his beloved Twitterverse seemed to have turned their back on him, when the social networking website lit up with talk of Sheen and his harsh roast. But Sheen got the last laugh: According to Gigaom.com, social media monitoring group Visible Technologies found that the Charlie Sheen roast, and talk of all things about the tiger blood-infused warlock, garnered upwards of 400,000 tweets, while Kutcher’s debut on Two and a Half Men earned only around 150,000. (One of which he contributed to, with his post, “Man I wish I had the east coast feed so I could watch it with you all… #2.5.”) READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen tries to revamp his image on 'The Wendy Williams Show.' Did you see it?

Remember that time last night at the Emmy Awards when it seemed like Charlie Sheen was sincerely trying to make amends? Remember how he agreed to do a Comedy Central Roast (airing tonight at 10 p.m.), suggesting that he just might have a sense of humor about himself? Well, Sheen made the latest pit-stop on his “let’s try to salvage a tiny thread of my public image” tour Monday morning, and the results were… well… mixed at best.

Sheen stopped by The Wendy Williams Show for a sit down with the intrepid journalist, who grilled him not only on Two and a Half Men, but on two decades’ worth of romantic misfires. Unsurprisingly, the latter was not the best topic of conversation. While Sheen seems to be capable of expressing remorse for some of his crazier antics, he is still clearly unable to approach his romantic history with anything other than a flippant, self-deprecating manner that really comes across as cockiness.  READ FULL STORY
