Watch 'American Idol' contestant Symone Black fall off the stage -- VIDEO

It’s a terrible headline and a terrible request for the use of your time. But if you’re as frustrated as I just was after Fox teased the heck out of one contestant’s impressive Hollywood Week stage-to-floor story arc — only to let our DVR recordings get brutally cut off by a bump for new series Mobbed — you can watch 16-year-old Symone Black fall off the stage here.

Don’t expect to find out whether she lives or dies! You’ll just have to tune in tomorrow.

I’m such a deeply loathsome creature right now, and yet I’m only trying to help. READ FULL STORY

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

Casey Abrams shaves beard for Inflammatory Bowel Disease awareness, completes transformation into Cabbage Patch Kid cop -- VIDEO

It’s an important milestone in any doughy young boy or doll’s life. Watch American Idol season 10 standout Casey Abrams (have his dad) shave his beard after the jump. Then tell me what frustrates you more — the kid’s complete inability to groom himself or his neglect to put Haley Reinhart on speakerphone?!

'It's halftime, America.' How to top Eminem? Get Clint Eastwood to do a Super Bowl commercial

2011′s best Super Bowl commercial was Eminem for Chrysler. It’s only halftime, of course, but the greatest of 2012 so far has been Clint Eastwood for Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler in another all-American “Imported from Detroit” spot. Eastwood spoke of finding a way through tough times — if there’s not one, we’ll make one.

“Detroit’s showing it can be done,” he insisted. Then the actor-director’s voice that sounds like what Mount Rushmore is carved out of delivered a State of the Union closer for the ages: “This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We’ll get back up again and when we do the world’s gonna hear the roar of our engines. Yeah. It’s halftime, America,” he promised. “And our second half’s about to begin.” Watch: READ FULL STORY

If They Mated: Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter

We’ve finally found him!

Congratulations to American Idol reject Ben Harrison for having such hilarious genes!

My recap of the Portland auditions will be up shortly. Conan and Andy’s twisted little lovechild was pretty much the high point of the episode for me.

Update: Here’s my recap. What did you think?

'The X Factor' poetry roundup: 12 most powerful lines from departing judge Nicole Scherzinger

Hot on the heels of a real tragedy, sources close to The X Factor say that judge Nicole Scherzinger will join host Steve Jones in their expulsion from the harsh, red galaxy. Nicole will not return for season 2, having received Simon Cowell’s blessing to go forth — far, far, away… no, no, a little farther… please, love, if you could just keep walking — and work on her music.

Since turning my “I love Steve Jones” post inside out and doing “10 Things I Won’t Miss About Nicole Scherzinger” seemed a bit cruel, here’s a benign roundup of some of Nicole’s most poignant and thought-provoking utterances in season 1. Print these out and let her wisdom guide you through life. You’re an inspiration for her.

Merely 12 of Nicole Scherzinger’s Most Powerful Lines of Poetry from ‘The X Factor’

“We’re nothing without the talent.” (during a confessional from her hotel suite in Seattle)

“If I were a teenager again, you’d be all over my walls.” (to the Brewer Boys) (ew?)

“If I were a season, I’d want to look just like you.” (to Lakoda Rayne) 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

Contrarian Corner: I've had it with video stores!

I am very disappointed in myself right now for many reasons (intense cold-weather reclusion, strong identification with Charlize Theron’s character in Young Adult, weight gain), but at the top of the list is confirmation of my recent aversion to video stores.

I’m supposed to appreciate these relics, the sprawling box-like storefronts that just seem to bleed out smaller and smaller rectangles — 99-cent outdated movie posters, clunky VHS tapes the stores will practically pay you to remove, DVDs-for-purchase that no one will ever open again. Every few days during the late ’90s, I moped around the Garden Market Blockbuster (now out of business, though my mom just told me it became a costume warehouse for two weeks this October; so tragic) and Video 66 on Joliet Rd. (still there! possibly due to Honey Fluff Donuts next store?) (Update: just drove by and I was wrong; it’s now a vacant-again storefront that says FUN TAN, ugh) — because what else would I do with my life? And then whenever I was back home over the holidays or the summers throughout the late 2000s, I would mope around the same stores again, just in different sweatpants. I’m sure the Video 66 guy appreciated my upgrade from “flannel” to “yoga.” READ FULL STORY
