Laurie? Abed? Jules and Ellie? Who's had the best crossover so far? Vote!

Cougar Town may not be on the air right now (let’s just say we’ve been spending ample time with Big Carl to ease the pain), but the cul-de-sac crew is, thankfully, still part of the prime time television line-up. In fact, just last night Cougar Town fans could find Laurie sipping coffee at the very same outdoor stand that Happy Endings‘ Dave, Max, and Brad were visiting! (Is it just us, or would Max and Laurie make spectacular friends? Sorry, Penny! Pennnny Caaaaannnn!) Check it out: READ FULL STORY

'Jack and Jill': Do you still see Adam Sandler flicks, or did you give that up a long, long time ago?

The funniest thing about the trailer for Jack and Jill, a real movie that opens in theaters this weekend, is how fake it all seems. The mind-bogglingly absurd image of Adam Sandler playing both himself and his boorish, Noo Yawk twin sister Jill looked like it could have been one of the movies his Funny People character willingly sold out to make a quick buck for. Actually, it felt more like something out of a South Park episode in which they’d parody the mind-boggling absurdity of most Sandler flicks. (“Adam Sandler is his own twin sister… and Rob Schneider is a stapler!”) I take that back, the funniest thing about the Jack and Jill trailer is that it produced this. Brilliant.

Still, no one, especially not critics, seem to be laughing at Sandler’s latest pass at, er, comedy. (EW’s Lisa Schwarzbaum gave the film a D+, helping the film earn its 2 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Well, at least its no Bucky Larson, right? Right?!) Will anyone other than masochists and the most hardcore Sandler devotees see this? READ FULL STORY

Celebrities' Halloween costumes: Heidi. 'The Today Show'. Nicole Richie. Who had the best get-up?

I must say, I was pretty disappointed in Jim Halpert during last week’s Halloween-themed episode of The Office, PopWatchers. John Krasinski’s Jim is usually so dependable when it comes to inspired, albeit sort of lazy, costumes. But instead of classics like Three Hole Punch Jim and Facebook (or, Bookface, if you will) we were treated — nay, tricked — into him teaming up with Kevin and Daryl to go as the Heat’s not-so-dreamy team. (Insert unamused Jim face here.)

Thankfully, perennial Halloween showstoppers like Heidi Klum and the gang at The Today Show left us with no such crushing disappointment. (Or, in Halloween terms, when someone gives you fruit or pennies instead of candy. WHY?!) Klum said “Auf Wiedersehen!” to her clothes (and, well, her skin for that matter), as she she showed up to TAO Las Vegas over the weekend — on gurney with a white bed sheet, no less — dressed as a corpse. Klum, who always pulls out all the stops for the holiday told People, “This is my 13th Halloween party. This year I wanted to be a dead person.” Robbie Williams, you just got served.

When Beavis and Butt-Head met Snooki: Watch the trifecta converge on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

As promised, Beavis and Butt-Head paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel on his show last night. But before the animated duo made their Jimmy Kimmel debut, MTV’s other animated success, Jersey Shore‘s Snooki, was on first to discuss how Italy is different (“The roads… and the cobblestones… and the language”) and her arrests (“I’m a badass.”) When asked by Kimmel what her favorite TV shows are, Snooks replied she’s a fervent watcher of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Mob Wives.

In what could only be described as pure coincidence, Snooki also announced she was excited for the return of Beavis and Butt-Head. Which was convenient considering the duo were watching — and judging — the show from the comfort of their famous tattered couch. (“This is a horrible interview!”) Sick of the taunting from Beavis and Butt-Head (“This a whole other show.” “You said, ‘A hole’!”), Kimmel offers up his show to the pair. (Huh-huh, pair.)

Watch Butt-Head, host of Butt-Head Live!, attempt to interview Snooki (who they have already mocked on their own show), while Beavis holds up helpful cue cards. (“Talk About Boobs”) below. Come on, you don’t want to be the only one at your Mensa meeting to have missed this! READ FULL STORY

Despite confusion, Carlos Santana is NOT Muammar Gaddafi; still very much alive

Nope, that’s not an Onion headline, PopWatchers. In response to yesterday’s news regarding the death of Muammar Gaddafi, it seems some folks took one look at the slain Libyan dictator, and rather than, say, Googling him (or they did and gave up halfway through trying to figure out how to spell his name), thought they were seeing legendary guitarist Carlos Santana get captured and killed by rebel forces. (C’mon guys, “Smooth” isn’t that annoying.)

As the Washington Post noted, Santana joined the long lineage of celebrity death hoaxes, when tweeters began to post condolences for the Grammy-winner (“R.I.P. Carlos Santana”) using pictures of the actual deceased person, Gaddafi. READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan wears Pippa Middleton's Royal Wedding dress to Kim Kardashian's nuptials: Game on!

I’m not saying Pippa Middleton and Lindsay Lohan should engage in some sort of cage match or Hunger Games-type competition to determine who wore the glamorous Temperley dress best, but if they did, I would totally watch that. (Vegas odds would have to go in favor of Lohan, no? She’s pretty scrappy.) While Middleton technically wore it first, and in a gorgeous green, to the Royal Wedding of her sister Kate Middleton to Prince William, Lohan cleaned up nicely and (appropriately, no less) wore the equally lovely white version of the gown (guests were instructed to only wear black or white) to America’s — forgive us — Royal Wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. USA! USA! USA!

Okay, since there’s probably not going to be any cage match, you tell us PopWatchers: Pippa or Lindsay? No fighting dirty in the comments section below!

'Double Dare': The eternal allure of getting 'super sloppy'

Double Dare: who can forget it? It was the kiddie game show that put children through challenges such as throwing a football to your partner while blindfolded (oh, and your partner is blindfolded, too) or trying to assemble a Mr. Potato Head toy in less than 20 seconds (tougher than it sounds). There were obstacle courses whose stations included a slide slathered with chocolate sauce, and “The Icy Trike,” in which a luckless young person had to negotiate a baby-size tricycle across a surface slicked with vegetable oil.

I love where this 'Drive' poster is going, font-wise

Ryan Gosling can do no wrong, so why not emblazon his magnificent nether regions with a hilariously outdated pink font? I look at this and just hear a valley girl screaming “Ryan Goslingggggggg!” Here’s the official poster for Drive, starring Gosling as a a movie stunt man who moonlights as a getaway driver.

A possible 'Horrible Bosses' sequel? We shoot around some ideas.

It’s been the summer of the sequel, and no we don’t mean just because of The Hangover 2, Kung Fu Panda 2, Cars 2 or No Strings Attached 2 (okay, fine, Friends with Benefits). Actually, to be more precise, it’s been the summer of talking about the possibility of the sequel.

We’ve already gotten word that Thor will return to theaters in 2013, but elsewhere there’s been chatter about bringing the ladies of Bridesmaids back for more and a debate on whether or not Something Borrowed will — or should — be continued.

Now it seems Horrible Bosses, which in three weeks has already pulled in over $80 million at the box office, could be the latest to join the sequel society. READ FULL STORY

This Week in Ryan Gosling: Unsavory massages, reprimanding Peter O'Toole, and dancing with Al Roker

Say what you will about Ryan Gosling — I usually say things like, “Oooh, handsome. So very, very handsome” — but you’ve got to give the guy credit: He sure knows how to make for a memorable talk show appearance. The actor spent the past week-and-a-half making the rounds on the gab fest circuit to promote his latest flick, the near-perfect romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, which opens next Friday. And while the movie doesn’t need to sell us (they had us at “Photoshopped” abs) Gosling certainly did his duty to pitch the movie to the masses. READ FULL STORY
