Our top moments of the week:
12. Least Favorite Follow-Up: Knowing how gravely she deprived us of ear-piecing screams and uncontrollable tears last year, Oprah Winfrey resurrects her "Favorite Things" — except it's not the "Favorite Things" we know and love. As part of a making-of documentary — during which O thinks she's getting high from pigs in a blanket — the episode features only 30 handpicked military spouses, who do their best freak-outs, but it's all a little flat. Let's face it, strength is in numbers. At least we'll always have SNL.
11. Best Origin Story: This is the true story...

When the comedienne appeared on Late Show Tuesday, Poehler explained how her character Leslie Knope has a huge crush on Biden. When they filmed his recent guest appearance on her NBC comedy, Poehler says that for kicks, she tried to seal the deal with the VP. In turn, Letterman goes in for his own kiss, which you can watch in the clip below:

Parks and Recreation is getting back into the business of, well, parks and recreation.
On Thursday's episode, the infamous Lot 48, which was once the pit that Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) had been so desperate to turn into a park, will return. But it's not Leslie leading the charge this time: April (Aubrey Plaza) wants to turn it into a dog park!

SEAL Team Six
Controversy arose when the National Geographic Channel announced that it will premiere a film about the successful military raid that killed Osama bin Laden two days before the presidential election, but anyone who walks away thinking that SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden is a political piece has blinders on.
From the first 15 minutes — which include an intense, violent firefight — it's clear that the film's purpose is to provide entertainment, not to advance a political agenda. President Barack Obama is merely a background player (albeit an obviously necessary one), while the real focus is ...
Joe Biden is doing everything he can to make sure voters make their voices heard in this year's election, whether by heading to the polls Tuesday or voting early in the states that allow it — and Thursday night, that included an appearance by the vice president on The Late Show with David Letterman. In a pre-taped message recorded along the campaign trail, Biden delivered the show's Top 10 list — Top 10 Reasons to Vote Early.
President Barack Obama, Jon Stewart
President Barack Obama appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Thursday, where he discussed his administration's handling of the incident in Benghazi, the incessant emails from his re-election campaign and Joe Biden in a swimsuit.
