Jesse Tyler Ferguson
This week, as Toronto mayor Rob Ford continued to careen off the rails, everyone pondered how great it would be if Chris Farley were still alive to mimic Ford on Saturday Night Live. Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman teamed up to create a new short film for Prada, while screenwriter Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) put a dark spin on Super Mario Brothers. Also, Jimmy Fallon hosted a game of celebrity charades, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei created a gay version of The Bachelor. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Who needs Martha Stewart? Modern Family's Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) allow their pal Pepper (Nathan Lane) to be the event planner for their big day.
Hot in Cleveland
At the risk of mixing one's classic-comedy metaphors ... While watching the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunite for a chipper if undeniably poignant exercise in meta nostalgia on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (Wednesday, 10/9c), you might find yourself wistfully recalling the old Carol Burnett Show theme: "I'm so glad we had this time together." This is especially true for the iconic buddy duo of Mary and Rhoda, with Mary Tyler Moore appearing even more frail than Valerie Harper, whose inspiring public battle with brain cancer pretty much defines the quality once attributed to Mary Richards: "spunk."

13. Biggest Disappointment: In the midst of a lackluster final season, Dexter reveals that the identity of the season-long villain, The Brain Surgeon, is Vogel's son ... whom no one cares about.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued two landmark rulings related to the issue of same-sex marriage Wednesday. First, the court ruled that the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional — paving the way for legally married same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as straight married couples. Second, the Court dismissed an appeal against California's Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state — meaning that same-sex marriage can resume in California.
Celebrities took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the rulings. Here are some of their reactions:
