Honey Maid takes a stand for 'Love' in a new commercial -- VIDEO

The evolution of commercials is semi-fascinating: First, they were this exciting new way to advertise stuff. Then they became the annoying interruptions during your favorite television shows. And now that they live in a world of DVRs and fast-forwarding, they’ve had to get even more creative.

Recently, quite a few ads have chosen to take a stand on a number of world issues. There was that multilingual Coke ad, which received decidedly mixed reviews, as well as the Cheerios commercial that depicted a multiracial family. After that one received (more than) a little hate, Cheerios chose to run in again, but this time during the Super Bowl. That’s right, folks: Commercials are no longer backing down.

The real Sarah Palin chats with Jimmy Fallon's Vladimir Putin -- VIDEO

Russian president Vladimir Putin is seeking advice from Sarah Palin. At least, Jimmy Fallon’s Putin wants to hear what the “mama grizzly” has to say.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon mentioned the current tensions in Ukraine, and the recent phone call President Obama had with Putin over Russia’s attempted takeover of Crimea. Little did we know, but there was also a second phone conversation, one between Putin and someone who had predicted his invasion of Ukraine back in 2008: Palin.

Matt Lauer and Al Roker to appear in 'Sharknado 2' -- VIDEO

When Sharknado premiered last summer, you either wrote off the concept of a Great White-infested hurricane terrorizing Los Angeles as silly, or fully embraced the horror-schlock of a Syfy film about flying sharks starring Tara Reid and a chainsaw-wielding Ian Ziering. Matt Lauer and Al Roker, apparently, fall into the latter category.

The Today hosts will appear in Sharknado 2: The Second One, set to premiere July 31 on Syfy. On Wednesday’s episode of the morning show, Lauer announced he and the NBC weatherman had just filmed their cameos for the sequel in Studio 1A. He shared a sneak peek of the footage, which will not disappoint fans of the original film: Roker delivers the line, “Think of it this way: This is a twister…with teeth,” while Lauer can be seen impaling a green pillow — which one can assume will turn into a shark in post-production — with an umbrella.

Jimmy Kimmel airs viewers' best April Fools' Day pranks -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel has played some pretty good pranks on unsuspecting victims. But for April Fools’ Day, he asked viewers to channel their own inner Ashton Kutcher and punk their loved ones.

Kimmel and his staffers compiled some of the best submissions for their latest YouTube challenge in the following clip. Looks like Kimmel fans have a penchant for torturing their children with false information, from the poor kid who thinks he won an awesome prize from Legoland to the little boy who thinks his Xbox has been sold.

A new website tells you how much time you've spent watching TV (and this viewer won't be ashamed!)

I feel like, “Hi, my name is Samantha, and I watch a lot of TV,” is the unspoken introduction I hand out on a daily basis. Or at least, that fact is gathered within seconds of meeting me. The person I’m speaking to either A) Asks me what I’m doing that night (watching TV), B) Asks me where I work, or C) I quote a TV show before they can ask me anything at all. And guess what? I’m okay with it. READ FULL STORY

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Underwater kisses really aren't that romantic

Movies and television make a lot of things look really romantic. When I was young and impressionable, pop culture taught me that kissing in the rain was about 100 times better than kissing in any other weather, and that you didn’t properly ride a Ferris wheel unless you were making out with somebody during it. Additional lessons included the appeal of the “up-against-a-wall” kiss and the shirt rip, all of which I enjoy watching and don’t have an issue with. However, there is one “romantic” gesture I’d like to address: The underwater kiss is not nearly as great as it is portrayed to be. READ FULL STORY
