Your afternoon delight: Will Ferrell leads Mardi Gras parade -- PHOTO

By the beard of King Bacchus! Will Ferrell dressed as the Roman god of wine (surprisingly, not Ron Burgundy’s favorite Scotch) for New Orleans’ annual Mardi Gras parade. Joining him during Sunday’s festivities? Zach Galifianakis, who stars with Ferrell in The Campaign. So Ferrell and Galifianakis are currently in the Big Easy becoming co-people with the good folks in New Orleans, while we’re sitting in front of our computers with nothing to do but quote Anchorman. Son of a bee sting, that’s not fair.

PopWatch Confessional: The ballad you're 99.9 percent sure you're the last person to listen to

In honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s each confess a ballad we’re 99.9 percent sure we are the last person to have listened to — and see if we’re right. I’ll start, with a quick scroll through my Recently Played list:

Air Supply’s “Chances”: Because I was supposed to see them — for a third time —  on Saturday night but missed the show. I used to have to listen to their entire Greatest Hits 8-track before I would get dressed for elementary school (minus “Sweet Dreams,” because the intro scared me). Everyone knows “Making Love Out of Nothing At All.” But what about this song?
Kenny Rogers’ “I Don’t Need You”: Because it’s a song my late father and I both liked, and it’s my first Valentine’s Day without him.
Conway Twitty’s “(Lost Her Love) On Our Last Date”: Because I’m a sucker for a steel guitar.
O-Town’s “All or Nothing”: I’m choosing this one because I imagine someone else has listened to Backstreet Boys’ “Incomplete” and Hanson’s “I Will Come to You” recently since they’re still together.
Lionel Richie’s “Stuck On You”: Because I’ve been wishing I was in a cabin in Kentucky, and this song came on the radio during my last road trip there, so it makes me feel like I’m on my way.
• Laura Branigan’s “Over You”: I think of it as precursor to Adele’s “Someone Like You.”  READ FULL STORY

'Hawaii Five-0' Valentine's promo not as ridiculous as it looks

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like a man (or two) possibly falling to his death. “It’s the day before Valentine’s… and Five-0 has a heart-stopping new episode,” the promo for tonight’s Hawaii Five-0 promises. Watch it below. Reaching? Not so fast: What you can’t tell, is that like the rest of CBS’ Monday night lineup, Hawaii Five-0 is actually celebrating Valentine’s Day within the hour. A black tie charity event lets McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) pull his weapon while wearing a tux — which is our second favorite look for him (after “emerging from an ocean swim shirtless”).  READ FULL STORY

'Chasing Leprechauns': The Hallmark original movie that celebrates St. Patrick's Day but sounds like April Fools'

On March 17, Hallmark Channel will premiere the original film Chasing Leprechauns starring Adrian Pasdar and Amy Huberman. With that title, it’s already legendary, but now read the synopsis: READ FULL STORY

How to get Ryan Gosling at your place, on demand, this Valentine's Day

ryan-gosling-shirtless

It’s not with chocolates, it’s not with roses, it’s not even by luring him with the promise of adorable hipster dogs or intentionally getting into street fights in the hope that he’ll show up in a tank top and break it up. No, all you’ll need to do to get Ryan Gosling out of Eva Mendes‘ arms and over to your place this Valentine’s Day is… pay cable! And you thought paying for 789 channels would all be in vain.

In honor of Valentines Day, Time Warner Cable will be offering Ryan Gosling movies on their On Demand feature until Feb. 27. After heading to the aptly titled “Ryan Gosling” section in Movies on Demand, for up to $4.99 a pop you can re-establish your crush on 2011’s boy man wonder with his swoon-worthy flicks like The Notebook (that kiss!), Lars and the Real Girl, Remember the Titans, Crazy, Stupid, Love. (those abs!) and Drive. (What? Just us? Nothing says defending your lady’s honor quite like smashing in another guy’s head in an elevator.)

What is your New Year's pop-culture resolution?

Some New Year’s resolutions are easier to keep than others. That’s why we here at EW like to make pop-culture resolutions. Check out some of our vows for 2012 here, and please, offer your own below. We’ll pick our favorites and turn them into a gallery for all to see and hold you to. You only need one goal, but I’ll offer a few to get us started. In 2012:

• I will not allow a smartass stranger to spook me when I leave the movie theater after seeing The Woman in Black as I did in when I left a London theater after seeing the play in 1996.

• I will have at least one conversation about John Carter and Battleship star Taylor Kitsch in which the word “hair” is not used. He deserves that.

• I will lower the number of Bon Jovi songs in my Top 25 Most Played list from three to one (“This Ain’t a Love Song”). Sorry, “It’s My Life” and “Runaway.” I just can’t.

• I will not let anything get in the way of my seeing George Jones live for the first time.

• I will not get so vicariously embarrassed for women on The Bachelor that I hide my head in a pillow, beat the couch with a pillow, or toss a pillow across the room.

Your turn!

Kathy Griffin strips to underwear, but Anderson Cooper still more embarrassed by Green Goblin abduction on New Year's Eve

Griffin-Cooper

Kathy Griffin broke CNN’s “no nudity” order on New Year’s Eve when she stripped down to her bra and underwear shortly before midnight. Watch the video below. Sadly, we’ve yet to see anyone upload her and Anderson Cooper’s second most talked about moment: That bizarrely unfunny interruption of the telecast when we — and all of the confused Times Square revelers looking up at the JumboTron beneath the ball — watched the Green Goblin from Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark try to convince a kidnapped Cooper to become an anchorman on his World Wide Freak Network (WWFN). Maybe that bit would have played better if the Green Goblin had identified himself sooner, or had the picture and sound not gone in and out for home viewers, or had it felt at all timely. Still, watch Spider-Man save Cooper below in a short clip. Griffin properly ridiculed Cooper afterward, at least, with lines like: “This is what happens when I take a day off,” “If you think you’re ever gonna live this down,” “Was that your integrity coming up and now it’s gone?” (after Cooper coughed), and “After that last bit, I feel above you. Trust me.”

Lady Gaga's 'New Year's Rockin' Eve' performance: Watch it here!

New Yorker Lady Gaga had a dream come true performing in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. She began her medley of “Heavy Metal Lover,” “Marry the Night,” and “Born This Way” in a costume that I would describe as “black sequin Jabba the Hut.” What’s your best guess? (I’ve seen Pac-Man ghost on Twitter, which was my second thought.)

She soon enough stripped down to a relatively normal ensemble: a black sequin bodysuit and Catwoman mask with some kind of large wire globe structure around her head. We said “relatively normal.” Watch the performance below. Gaga later helped Mayor Bloomberg push the button to drop the ball after changing into an equally accessible Versace number. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber sings 'Let It Be' on 'New Year's Rockin' Eve': Watch it here!

Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, and LMFAO brought the dance beats to their performances on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, but Justin Bieber opted to help ring in 2012 by sitting at a piano — for a cover of the Beatles’ “Let It Be” featuring Carlos Santana. Watch it below. What did you think? READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lopez tops the list of 'New Year's Rockin' Eve' best performances

More than 200 artists have performed on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve since it debuted 40 years ago, and in tonight’s countdown of the Top 40 performances, Jennifer Lopez (and her bedazzled bodysuit) took the crown. See the full list below. Things we learned watching Fergie and Jenny McCarthy host tonight’s live two-hour countdown special: The crowd dancing in the ’80s was so much better than today, Rick Springfield actually pulled off that pink suit (which is, we assume, why his name and “Jessie’s Girl” trended on Twitter), and meeting McCarthy was one loud man’s life dream.  READ FULL STORY
