'Two and a Half Men': Stormy Valentine's Day episode -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

We’ve got a first look from an upcoming episode of Two and a Half Men episode airing Monday, Feb. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Exclusive pics ahead of Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer flailing around in the wet Malibu sands (a word pairing that never fails to remind me of Saved by the Bell). But you might think they’re “hottttttt.” Who knows what you like? READ FULL STORY

'Kourtney and Kim' divorce finale extravaganza: Was the marriage real? Fake? Why...WHY?!

Now that we’ve had a few hours to absorb the horrific found footage finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, it’s time to decide once and for all, was Kim Kardashian’s marriage to NBA star and giant man-child Kris Humphries true love gone awry, thanks to the pressures of self-induced fame? Or a terrible hoax (sorry, hoaks) perpetrated by E! overlords and the Kardashian family to make even more money off a group of people whose one discernible talent seems to be making scads of money by doing so little?  On the bright side, it’s over! (No, not just their marriage, but the entire soul-crushing season of Kourtney and Kim.)

PopWatch Confessional: When have you been (too) frustrated by someone's lack of pop-culture knowledge?

Watching the preview clip below of tonight’s Billy on the Street episode, in which the FUSE trivia game show’s host, comedian Billy Eichner, loses it on a Drew Peterson lookalike who doesn’t know who Tilda Swinton is, made me sort of envious. He gets paid to be freakishly frustrated by people’s lack of pop-culture knowledge. (It’s the highlight of the show.) I, on the other hand, just get to feel guilty about the time I was playing the game Celebrity with three friends years ago, and my partner was unable to name J.K. Rowling and Mel Gibson. It was infuriating on multiple levels. For starters, she had the Harry Potter books on her shelf. Also, she worked at another entertainment magazine. I became so unglued, I announced to the group that I refused to be paired with her for another round, that night or ever again. I am a nice person. Fifteen years in New York, and I still go out of my way to walk around tourists standing in the middle of the sidewalk taking a picture in Times Square so I don’t ruin their shots. But this enraged me.

Your turn. When were you freakishly frustrated by someone’s lack of pop-culture knowledge? READ FULL STORY

We all know 'Beauty and the Beast 3D' got robbed

Plenty of Oscar snubs yesterday, but perhaps most egregious is the Academy’s woefully unenlightened cold shoulder toward Best Supporting Actor Lumière. Don’t they realize that the farther they walk away from his eternal flame, the less they will be able to see? What’s it like, Oscar voters, to live inside a great big gilded castle of DARKNESS?

PopWatch Pop Quiz: 'The Bachelor' or 'Intervention'?

Last night’s Intervention featured Kimberly, an alcoholic who lives in a big house and spends all of her spare time drinking. The Bachelor features “ladies” who “live” in a big house and spend all of their spare time drinking. It’s only a matter of time before the Champagne Flute of Fate will get us all.

Try to determine which quote is from which show. It may be harder than you think!

‘THE BACHELOR’ OR ‘INTERVENTION’? for Jan. 23, 2012

1. “I am 100 percent thinking I cannot do this. I’m scared.”
2. “I sat there and I was just crying in the street.”
3. “F—- her! F— her!”
4. “I almost want to rip her head off and verbally assault her.”
5. “I am one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.”
6. “I just can’t listen to this because it’s too absurd.”
7. “It’s always about you, you, you, you, you. One is a lonely number, and you’re going to die.”
8. “It’s the most painful thing in this world. I want what I couldn’t get here. I want all that good stuff; I want it to last and I want it to be right. And I’m skeptical that it even exists anymore.”
9. “I wonder if you’ll take this seriously enough.”
10. “The only emotion I feel when I look into that house is shame.”

GOOD LUCK! And the answers are…. READ FULL STORY

'Haywire' gets a D+ CinemaScore grade: What gives?

Well, this is a kick in the pants. (And the face… and pretty much anywhere else Gina Carano could knock you on your butt clear into next week.) In addition to a less-than-impressive opening weekend at the box office, Steven Soderbergh’s well-reviewed action caper Haywire earned a dreadful, if not entirely baffling, D+ grade from CinemaScore.

The film, which has already earned plenty of comparisons to being a female version of the Bourne series, is complete with a knock-out leading lady who knocks out all of her leading men (see left: poor Ewan McGregor), Michael Fassbender (in a towel: A+!), Bill Paxton (with a mustache!), stunning action sequences (the hotel room, the snowy car chase), and a killer last line. So what gives?

'Rob' premiere: Rob Schneider is... an insult!

According to South Park, comic actor Rob Schneider has played an animal, a woman, a carrot, and a stapler. And who could forget his rousing turn in Da Derp Dee Derp Da Teetley Derpee Derpree Dumb? (For the record, Schneider has only played an animal and a woman, so far. Though Da Derp Dee Derp… seems like it has the potential to be a hit, no?)

Now the SNL vet/frequent Adam Sandler collaborator has added another title to his resume: Newlywed OCD Landscape Architect Who Is Also Actually Kinda Racist And Will Accidentally Sexually Harass Your Grandmother. (Stapler doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?) READ FULL STORY

Place your bets! Who will Ricky Gervais skewer the worst at the Golden Globes?

How does one place bets on Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais, a man whose motto when it comes to torturing Hollywood (and Karl Pilkington) is “All bets are off”? You call in the pros, apparently. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has Russell Brand and Katy Perry as the odds-on favorite to feel Gervais’ wrath on Sunday night. The Arthur star, who recently split from Perry, his wife of 15 months, apparently has 5:1 odds of being the initial target from his fellow funny Brit.

It’s also predicted that Gervais will take aim at targets like Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Tom Cruise (who many speculated was at the butt of Gervais’ Scientology joke during the 2011 ceremony), and Charlie Sheen. (“Welcome to a night of partying and heavy drinking. Or as Charlie Sheen calls it: breakfast,” he cracked last year.) But, before you fly off to Las Vegas to put down all of your money on those celebs who will soon likely wish they’d kept quieter over the past year, here’s some others dark horses to consider.

David Cross will apparently trash 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked' until he's blue in the face

The increasingly poor word choices of David Cross? When the subject of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked came up during his visit to Conan on Monday night, the comic actor once again didn’t sugarcoat his feelings about what it was like working on the film. (During an interview with IndieWire.com last month Cross called it “the most unpleasant experience I’ve ever had in my professional life.”)

But it wasn’t Cross’ reiteration that, aside from the cast and crew members, “it was the most miserable experience I’ve ever had in my professional life,” or his cracks at the movie’s expense, which he called “a big commercial for Carnival Cruise lines,” rather a swipe at one of the film’s producers that might be more even painful to endure than Chipwrecked itself.

While discussing a point in filming in which Cross said he was legally “forced … to spend a week on a cruise ship” to dress up as a pelican, a decision he said was made by a producer on the project. (The Arrested Development star talked about the unpleasant cruise and his beef with the producers to The Onion, as well.) Then Cross, who was raised Jewish but now identifies as an Atheist, described the unnamed producer in question as “the personification of what people think about when they think negatively about Jews.”

The moment elicited some nervous laughter from the audience (as well as co-guest Seth Green) but visibly made host Conan O’Brien uncomfortable, as he quickly changed the subject. Maybe that’s the best course of action for Cross at this point, too. When it comes to Alvin and the Chipmunks: Change the subject.

Watch the moment (which goes from 29:09 to 32:32) below: READ FULL STORY
