Every time I think I’m a grown up, I find myself caring about something like whether Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will be able to share a kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve. They’ll both be in NYC, but performing on different networks. Gomez will take the stage for MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012, along with Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Mac Miller, and J. Cole. Bieber is one of the performers on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012, as well as Lady Gaga, Pitbull, and Hot Chelle Rae in New York, and The Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am in Los Angeles. Were I a network exes, I’d try to find a way to block off a tiny portion of the street so Bieber and Gomez could run to each other as the clock ticked down and the million-strong crowd’s cheers swelled. I want to see the ball drop, but I would totally watch the romantic Bieber-Gomez kiss picture-in-picture. Bieber likes grand romantic gestures. THIS COULD BE HIS BIGGEST ONE YET!

Last night, the promo USA aired for the Dec. 6 season finale of Covert Affairs definitely got fans talking. “All season long, he was always there for her,” the voiceover says of Christopher Gorham’s Auggie and Piper Perabo’s Annie. “Now, will admitting her true feelings be her toughest mission yet?” The real question is, was it just the show’s female fans doing all the tweeting? Here’s why I’m asking: Yesterday, I chatted with Gorham for two items we’ll post next week: A fun, spoiler-free EW Pop Culture Personality Test before the finale and a juicy postmortem Q&A after it airs. During the personality test portion of our chat, I asked him to name a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple he roots for… READ FULL STORY
Consider this a PopWatch PSA: If there’s a holiday film you look forward to seeing each year, start checking the listings now. You don’t want to get a confessional e-mail from your friend Robb the morning after titled “My Hallmark Night” detailing how he stayed up late watching TV movies, including one of your favorites, 1999’s A Season for Miracles (starring Carla Gugino as the aunt who goes on the run with her niece and nephew to keep the kids together, David Conrad as the cop who falls for her, and Patty Duke as the angel who SPOILER ALERT! orchestrates their happily ever after). Luckily, it repeats Dec. 3 at 2 a.m. ET and Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. ET.
So, which holiday movie would it kill you to miss? My must-see is Flirting With Forty, the Lifetime movie starring Robert Buckley as the surfing instructor who gifts long-distance love Heather Locklear a bikini that she wears to take out the garbage on New Year’s Eve. READ FULL STORY
The mystery surrounding Natalie Wood’s death 30 years ago may not have been a recent topic of conversation for most people until police announced they were reopening the case last week. But as Slate’s Brow Beat blog keenly observed, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld worked it into a debate about whether reunions are ever a good idea during the seventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Watch the scene below.
And as for Robert Wagner’s ill-timed return to NCIS last night: His character, Tony DiNozzo’s con man father, was — spoiler alert! — ultimately cleared of any wrong doing after he woke up with a dead man in the trunk of his rented Rolls. He’d been roofied at a bar and framed by the lawyer of a business associate who’d just screwed them both. READ FULL STORY
If you’re not caught up on Sons of Anarchy, stop reading now.
If you are, have you recovered from these last two weeks? I was physically out of breath watching “Hands,” the Nov. 8 episode in which we endured the painful wait for Clay’s hitman to make his move on Tara and saw Clay beat Gemma. Last night’s episode, “Call of Duty,” piled onto the tension. READ FULL STORY
Now that we’ve seen trailers for both Mirror, Mirror (the rom-com take on a battle-ready Snow White starring Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, and Armie Hammer) and Snow White and the Huntsman (the darker, more action-filled version starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth), which film’s release are you more eagerly awaiting? Let’s put it to a vote. If you need help, we’ll break it down for you. READ FULL STORY
Let the fandom wars explode!
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer Lawrence dismissed fan fears that Hunger Games will just be Twilight: Round 2, with Team Peeta and Team Gale. “Hunger Games is not Twilight,” she explained.
While that is obviously true to anyone who has read both franchises’ source material, the remarks should be encouraging for fans who have been fearful that Team Peeta shirts weren’t too far off on the horizon. Especially in the first tome, a triangle isn’t really apparent — and it’s never the main plot in the way Edward/Jacob/Bella is in Twilight. Much more pressing for Katniss is, you know, the fellow Tributes who are trying to kill her.
For me, this clarification by Lawrence is incredibly encouraging. READ FULL STORY
Male stripper movie Magic Mike has already proven itself a gift that keeps on giving. Two of the stars are making headlines today for talking about the movie that they’re not even promoting yet. Matt Bomer shared a great story with MTV News about his first run-in with a thong. “I had never worn a thong before, so the first time I tried it, I put it on wrong and my junk didn’t fit in it,” he said. “I had to call a wardrobe person in and go, ‘Something’s wrong with my thong, you guys. I think we’re gonna have to figure this out,’ and they’re like, ‘Uh, yeah your legs are in the wrong holes.’ So, that was step one.” He went on to explain that there’s a technique to tearaway clothes, and that director Steven Soderbergh made him feel like he was shooting a documentary. Combine those two thoughts, and you have the makings of the best DVD featurette ever.
Co-star Joe Manganiello, meanwhile, dished to the LA Times‘ Ministry of Gossip about the routines in the film, which is a comedy. (“It’s like Animal House and Hangover funny,” Manganiello said.) Each stripper has his own theme. READ FULL STORY
