'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'

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

New Year's Eve TV: Chat about it here!

What’s the sound of New Year’s Eve to you? It may be “Auld Lang Syne” for some. For others, it’s Anderson Cooper’s giggle. Get ready to hear it again as he and Kathy Griffin reteam for CNN’s coverage, which goes live at 11 p.m. ET. UPDATE: Check out the best of Kathy and Anderson here.

POLL: Which New Year's Eve bash will you be tuning in for?

Much like the other anxiety-causing questions that hang heavy over your head on New Year’s Eve (“When should I leave this party?” “What will my resolution be?” “Who should I kiss at midnight?” “Why did I kiss that person at midnight?!”) “Which televised New Year’s Eve bash should I watch?” looms just as tauntingly over the holiday. Unfortunately the networks aren’t going to make your decision much easier this year, as there’s a plethora of specials to tune into to watch that blasted ball drop.

You’ll have to choose your allegiances to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, as he’ll be ringing in 2012 on ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, along with the likes of Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Hot Chelle Rae, The Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am; while she’ll be on MTV for their New Year’s Eve Bash with Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Mac Miller, and J. Cole. (Then again, you might have to take into consideration that Bieber’s New Years won’t really count, on account of his being Canadian and all.) READ FULL STORY
