Tracy Morgan rants against 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Jimmy Fallon’s holiday gifts just keep on comin’!

Holiday pajama-clad Fallon and Tracy Morgan read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” yesterday on Late Night. Well, Fallon read the holiday classic while Morgan, staying true to his 30 Rock alter ego, played the part of Scrooge by making pessimistic and irrelevant side notes. He somehow steered the topic of discussion to pimps, penises, and bedroom activities. Fallon is straight-faced throughout the segment, but struggles to keep his cool once Morgan recites his phallic poem.

Dick's Sporting Goods' Christmas grand slam -- VIDEO

It doesn’t make you a Grinch to hate Christmas commercials — those annual 30-second guilt-trips that prey on our insecure sense of obligation and expectation. But your heart has to be two sizes too small if this Dick’s Sporting Goods commercial doesn’t make you want to rescue that sleigh full of floofloovers, trumtookas, and — yes —  baseball gloves before dumping it off the peak of Mount Crimpet.

Watch it below, before I say too much. READ FULL STORY

Bacon-scented shaving cream is perfect present for Ron Swanson -- also a real thing

Bacon-scented-shaving-cream_510x317.jpg

Sorry, Honor — this product truly deserves to top Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.

Yes, shaving cream that smells like rich, smoky pork actually exists. Here’s how the press release describes it: “J&D’s Bacon Shaving Cream™ is proudly Made in America and is the highest quality meat-scented shaving cream on the market today… It is best used after a hot shower or before an important date with someone you may want to spend the rest of your life with.”

As EW.com photo guru Jef Castro says, “That MUST cause break-outs. Or obesity.” Absolutely — but is it kosher? I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from the product’s creators, “Bacontrepreneurs” Justin and Dave.

These guys also sell a sriracha-flavored lip balm. Wearing it, apparently, is “like making out with some tasty napalm.”

Congratulations, world: I have finally been rendered speechless. Ooo, accidental bacon pun!

Five ways to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day

Well folks, it’s that time of year again — November the 5th, a day of gunpowder, treason and plot, and about a billion Facebook statuses telling you so. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie might have postponed Halloween, but by Sandy, we will have our Guy Fawkes Day (or, as it is more accurately known, Guy Fawkes Night). Here are five ways to celebrate this holiday of holidays:

Here’s a guide to the best of this weekend’s marathons — which include ’90s nostalgia-fests, geeky favorites, and a whole day of movies in which Clint Eastwood does not yell at a chair.

'Dancing With the Stars' to feature sneak peek of Disney doomsday film starring William Levy. Plus: Annie predicts season 14 finalists in EW's podcast

Okay, that’s not “true.” I just wanted to sneak in an April Fool’s Day headline while I still had the chance. Happy holidays to all.

But hear me out: This could happen. The Dancing With the Stars crowd’s reaction to sizzling filet of man William Levy — a Cuban-American telenovela actor and model — is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Brookebot and T-Berj can barely introduce him and his professional partner Cheryl Burke over the SOUL-DEADENING SCREAMS transmitted from three floors of fans. It’s like these visitors to Planet Mirrorballus have never seen a hot person before, and certainly not one from Cuba.

So far William Levy has worn a sleeveless shirt (to insane applause, for week 1’s cha cha — pictured) and a full-coverage black tie affair (to blood-curdling screams seemingly out of a horror movie, for week 2’s quickstep). I ask you, DANCMSTRs and fellow logicians: What is going to happen when William Levy wears no shirt at all? Will people drop dead from proximity to sexiness and the sight of his bare flesh? Will they screech until their heads explode? Now more than ever, I am frightened for our future. READ FULL STORY

Cue that scream: 'Home Alone' to get a Macaulay Culkin-free fifth (!?) installment

Assuming this won’t be some sort of insane hybrid of beloved holiday classic Home Alone and Uwe Boll “masterpiece” Alone in the Dark, ABC Family has announced that they will air the fifth installment in the Home Alone franchise, titled Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark. (On second thought, that would be sort of amazing.)

Alas, fans of the 1990 Macaulay-Culkin-battles-home intruders comedy will still watch in complete horror as the Home Alone name carries on without the exploits of Kevin McCallister and the wet/sticky bandits. In addition to coming to terms with this, devotees of the original and defenders of Lost in New York (who stored the third Home Alone in the part of their pop culture brains called this never happened where Scream 3 and Saved by the Bell: The College Years also reside) will now also have to absorb the notion that there was even a fourth one to begin with and it was called Home Alone 4: Taking Back The House. This is my Home Alone, PopWatchers, I have to defend it.
