Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the Jackass gang! Wee Man trekked all the way to the Emerald Isle for the making of Jackass 3.5, the digital-only followup to October’s surprise blockbuster that premieres on Joost.com on Apr. 1. The new full-length webisodes will feature all-new footage from Johnny Knoxville and his merry band of idiots, including Steve-O’s close encounter with a snapping turtle and the perfect prank that finally tripped up Johnny himself. Check out an exclusive photo of the boys being (stupid) boys below: READ FULL STORY »

opening from Live and Let Die) dancing around in my head. But our Mardi Gras is short-lived friends: For, tomorrow, we begin Lent, the 40-day bummer of a tradition that forces us (Catholics) to give up some prized possession or idea until Easter. Of course, since I am a horrible Catholic, I won’t be giving up chocolate, macaroni and cheese, or quoting The Room anytime soon. (I, simply, am not that strong. I am naahht.) That’s not to say that I won’t be honoring the holiday — after all, I need some kind of conversation starter with the relatives. And, this year, I’m going to do it right: I’m not going to be one of those people who choose the easy way out by cutting health food or 40 Days and 40 Nights or Carlos Mencia’s comedy out of my life. No, instead, I’ve decided to give up DVR’d reruns of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The Midwest may be covered in snow, and the East Coast is still trying to dig itself out, but Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning, so fear not: Winter is almost over. It’s not totally clear from the video that there’s any reaction from the wriggly rodent at all, but if a guy in a top hat says something is true, who are we to disagree? READ FULL STORY »
Merry New Year! Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, and a reported 1 million revelers welcomed 2011 from Times Square in New York City last night. ABC’s live broadcast of Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve boasted a classic boy-band bash, with the well-preserved Backstreet Boys and the New Kids on the Block collaborating for a medley of their greatest hits, but it was wild-child Ke$ha who stole the show. Performing her hit song, “Tik Tok,” she literally rode Santa Claus, whacked what appeared to be an Easter Bunny pinata, and urged the crowd to “make 2011 our bitch!” Later, on the ABC stage with Seacrest and the boy-band headliners, Ke$ha responded to Seacrest’s question about resolutions with a quick, “Not become a d—–bag.” Nice. (I think that’s actually in the third verse of “Auld Lang Syne.”)
Ke$ha’s irreverence was refreshing. Poor Jenny McCarthy was saddled with crowd-duty, and it was actually impressive hearing her sell lines like, “I am so excited to be down here,” and “I wish I could wake up every morning to this.” Sure you do, Jenny. Which made Seacrest’s under-his-breath line so perfect at the end of the evening, as McCarthy prepared to sign-off: “She wants a drink so badly.”
Other highlights — intentional and unintentional — of Dick Clark’s annual shindig included: READ FULL STORY »
Trailer here.) But seriously, MTV, the timing on this thing? Right after the stupid holidays? I’m about to polish off the last of a Paula Deen french toast casserole that’s been sitting in the fridge since Sunday (gross), and for a mid-afternoon snack I plan on reheating a complicated “brie melt” (featuring: jam!) for no reason other than “it’s there.” These two dishes look eerily alike (SORRY). I Recently Became Fat would have been much more relatable. Stop effing with us.I don’t always feel the need to alert people when there’s a new series on MTV, but there’s nothing new on lately, and yesterday Kristen Baldwin and I realized that even though it’ll probably just be The Biggest Loser for teenagers, we’re both “pretty into” tonight’s premiere of I Used to be Fat. (
In more pathetic news, I’ve taken advantage of my parents’ On Demand privileges to watch two episodes of True Life called “I’m Happy to be Fat” and “I’m Addicted to Food.” Um. Hello. Lunchtime poll! Vote for the show you’d be most likely to star in, below.

Glee‘s success has gone to Jane Lynch’s head, let this appearance ease your mind: Tomorrow, she’s set to help Charmin crown its “King or Queen of the Throne” at its public Charmin Restrooms in New York City. Lynch will officiate the two-part competition, after which, one of the five finalists will walk away with $50,000 and the honor of “presiding” over the Charmin Restrooms for the final days of 2010 and “sharing their Charmin enthusiasm by greeting and welcoming visitors and their families.” Round 1 is Toilet Tissue Trivia, while Round 2 involves physical challenges (a Charmin stacking competition, a Charmin tossing competition, and a Charmin mummy competition).If anyone thinks
Man, I wish Christopher Guest was around to film this. You just know Lynch is going to end up taking advantage of the “Oversized toilet photo-op,” one of the Restrooms’ 2010 amenities. (Those also include: a Smartphone-shaped “Sit or Squat” application display and a dance stage for kids to learn the Charmin potty dance. Please let her get on stage.) This could be my favorite Media Alert of 2010. And I haven’t even mentioned the fun facts the press release includes, like the fact that since the Charmin Restrooms opened in 2006, three couples of have gotten engaged there, and one couple got married there.

photos of Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, costars of the upcoming drama Dream House, walking hand-in-hand over the holidays in the snowy English countryside as they reportedly shared a “cottage hideaway” made anyone else think of Jude Law and Cameron Diaz in the movie The Holiday, then spend a good 60 seconds debating whether you’d prefer to open your English cottage door and find Craig or Law standing there? No? Just me? Well, do it now. PopWatch poll! (The New York Office is Snowed In Edition!) It’s a tough call: I know how luminous Law looks in Holiday lighting, but cuddling with Craig in front of a fire, I imagine, would keep one warmer. As my friend Sheila just reasoned over IM, “He’s hardier. Could chop firewood and stuff.”Have the
In case you missed it amidst your holiday preparations, Conan O’Brien took to the Internet last week to apologize for his TBS show doing a video bit about Sarah Palin shooting Rudolph two weeks after ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live added audio of Palin hunting caribou with her father from her TLC reality show over the animated holiday classic. “So, of course, we apologize for that, we weren’t aware,” O’Brien says of discovering the joke was a popular one only the morning after Conan‘s aired. “The staff member responsible for the piece has been fired, and, I hear, has been immediately rehired at Jimmy Kimmel. So I think everything worked out,” he deadpans. He then cites three other examples of his show playing copycat. (Did you know his sidekick Andy Richter was once a sidekick on another show?! ”I mean that show was such a piece of crap, I didn’t feel it was worth mentioning,” Richter cracks after a picture from their early days together flashes.) Watch the mea culpa below. Classy move, Coco. The video of Conan‘s bit also appears to have been removed from the show’s site.
