John Cho, Karen Gillan
How I'd love it if any of this season's dismal new wave of romantic comedies, all vying to be the next How I Met Your Mother, made me LOL. Sadly, I'm more inclined to search for a "cringe" emoticon, especially where ABC's two new Tuesday night entries are concerned.
The less objectionable is Selfie (8/7c), a strained attempt to update Pygmalion to the Instagram era, but coming off more like My Fair Lucy — because this Eliza Doolittle, here called Eliza Dooley (Doctor Who's Karen Gillan), is silly and vapid beyond belief or tolerance.
Derek Jeter ended his professional baseball career on a high note, leading his Yankees to a victory in his final MLB game.
Playing against their biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees won 9-5 with Jeter hitting his 3,465th base hit -- the most in the franchise's history — and earning his 1,311th RBI. After an emotional farewell in New York last week, the 40-year-old shortstop was on the lineup for his final game as a designated hitter. After he reached base on a single, he was replaced by pinch runner Brian McCann. Jeter hugged the Red Sox pitcher and then tipped his helmet to his Yankees crowd before going back into the dugout.

Leo is once again up to no good on Chasing Life
, and this time he drags April along for the ride. When he takes a hot sports car out for a test drive when a dealership's salesman isn't looking, the car is reported stolen. When the cops catch up and are about to bust them, Leo starts having a seizure related to his brain cancer, and the...
This week, "Weird Al" Yankovic is celebrating the release of his new album by releasing a video a day for eight days straight. The first clips include parodies of Pharrell's "Happy," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Lorde's "Royals" and Iggy Azalea's "Fancy." In sports news, baseball fans and players alike paid their respects to Derek Jeter during the MLB All-Star game, and Nike debuted an ad honoring the retiring New York Yankees shortstop. Also, Dana Carvey resurrected his classic "Choppin' Broccoli" song onThe Tonight Show, and Disney characters got a taste of prison life in the mash-up video Frozen Is the New Black. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Derek Jeter will retire after the 2014 season, he announced in a lengthy letter posted on Facebook Wednesday.
"I want to start by saying thank you," the New York Yankees shortstop wrote. "I know they say that when you dream you eventually wake up. Well, for some reason, I've never had to wake up. Not just because of my time as a New York Yankee but also because I am living my dream every single day."
When you find hot and heavy pictures of your fiancée with Derek Jeter, what do you do?
The logical answer might be to confront said fiancée. But if you're Partners' Joe (David Krumholtz), you tell your best friend Louis (Michael Urie) — as you've always done.

Barbara's picked her fair share of questionable folks (Kate Gosselin, Monica Lewinsky, Geri Halliwell?!), but when the list was announced for this year's 10 Most Fascinating People, we wondered if Walters, at the ripe old age of 82, had officially jumped the shark.
Ozzy Lusth, Edna Ma
Some thoughts about what's on tonight, starting with the reality contests. Was CBS' Survivor just teasing us with that trailer that showed Edna the Meek possibly upsetting Ozzy the Cocky in the next Redemption Island challenge? We'll believe it when we see it, but it would be nice for something unexpected to happen. The final Upolu 5 have stayed boringly, rigidly loyal to their game plan the last few weeks, but now that it's down to the next-to-last episode (8/7c) — the finale airs as the usual multi-hour extravaganza on Sunday — all bets presumably are off. Could anything keep Coach from making the finals? And if Ozzy somehow is bounced as well, that would make the climactic tribal council more interesting — which isn't the same as memorable.
Who are The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year?
Barbara Walters will let us know with her annual special Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
