In commercials for the Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff (airing Sunday, August 15, 10/9c), the actor gamely acknowledges the abundance of material that is likely to be slung at him at the legendary no-holds-barred event: Knight Rider, Baywatch, the undying devotion of his German fans to his music and, of course, "the video." That's the infamous clip from 2007 in which one of Hasselhoff's two daughters pleads with her shirtless, intoxicated father to stop drinking, all while he munches on a hamburger. It will all be easy fodder for confirmed roasters like...

TV Guide Magazine threw a hot party last night at New York's trendy Gilt at the Palace Hotel to celebrate the publication of "The Power List," TV's 25 most influential people—and its 3000th issue.

Here are a few tidbits we gathered from the attendees...

We saw some classic misjudgments this week: Questionable dancing, talking too much, crushing your own knuckles, cooking a human heart — wait, what? The last two, mercifully, are make-believe. The first two unfortunately aren't. It was a huge week for not-so-great decisions, even if we don't include one by a certain New Hampshire resident. Welcome to Top Moments, strange-decisions edition.
Ever pass ridiculously over-the-top mansions and ask yourself how those people became so well-off? Joan Rivers has, and she's about to knock on some very expensive doors to get the answer in her new series How'd You Get So Rich?
See how Joan Rivers has changed through the years
"I always would pass by places in the strangest cities — huge houses, big money, gorgeous cars — and always would say, 'How'd they get so rich?'" Rivers told TVGuide.com at the show's launch party. "So I thought: Wouldn't it be fun to do a show where you just go to the door and ask them."
Joan Rivers and Kathy Griffin

"It will be my distinct pleasure to honor a true comedy legend. The One and Only, The Great, Joan Rivers," Griffin said in a statement. "I mean, not that Pam Anderson wasn't a comedy legend or anything... Let's just say it will be an evening of highs and lows. I will be roasting Joan with more ...

Newly "hired" Joan Rivers gave her competitor Annie Duke a big hug after winning the final face-off on Celebrity Apprentice — but that doesn't mean the two will be friendly any time soon.
"We're not going to be BFFs," Rivers told TVGuide.com about her future interactions with the famous poker player. "It's a shame, because I think she's a brilliant poker player, but she plays life like poker and I don't. I play life like ...
It's been a fiery season of Celebrity Apprentice — especially between finalists Joan Rivers and Annie Duke.
The poker champ stopped by TV Guide Network's TV Watercooler to set the record straight about their feud and about Rivers' comment that Duke is "worse than Hitler." She also opened up about whether the fighting on the show has been real and how she feels about Melissa Rivers' critical Twitter posts about her.

Cheers to TV's most unexpectedly grade-A treat: Z-Rock. If This is Spinal Tap and Curb Your Enthusiasm had a baby, it'd look like IFC's semi-improvised comedy series about Z02, a real-life Brooklyn metal band by night who pay the bills by playing kids' music as the Z Brothers by day. The power trio's members are surprisingly adept actors, and they're ably supported by stand-up Lynne Koplitz as their foul-mouthed but loving manager she's like a sexier Susie Essman. Aptly, the guest list includes comics (Joan Rivers, Gilbert Gottfried) and rockers (just wait til you see the Z Brothers play a bris with Blues Traveler's John Popper). In short, Z rocks!
