Top Videos: Michael Emerson Sings "Happy," How to Communicate Like Jack Bauer

This week, Person of Interest star Michael Emerson set out to prove that he isn't always dark and intense, while CollegeHumor compiled a 24 video proving that Jack Bauer ... well, is almost always dark and intense. Full House was reimagined as a horror movie, and Saturday Night Live filmed a sketch with Andrew Garfield paying tribute to '90s sitcoms (but was forced to cut it from the broadcast). New judges Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams made their debuts on The Voice (sort of) by performing Stefani's hit "Hollaback Girl." And Sally Field destroyed Julia Roberts in a "Curse-Off" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Person of Interest: Is This Fusco's Moment?

Person of Interest fans were stunned in November when the CBS drama killed off original cast member Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter. But no one took it harder than her castmates. 

"I really miss working with Taraji," Kevin Chapman, who plays Carter's partner Detective Lionel Fusco, tells TVGuide.com. "She was very gracious, and we just really connected. We had a lot of fun. We'd go to basketball games together and dinners. I really miss having her around."

The CBS drama sent fans into a frenzy last week when it released a teaser trailer to promote a three-episode arc that begins with Tuesday's episode "Endgame." The clip suggests the death of a one of the core cast members, with most of the evidence pointing to Kevin Chapman's Fusco. But there's got to be some kind of twist, right? ... read more

Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker Give Us a Debriefing on Their Person of Interest Characters

Root is out of the psych ward and ready to rock! On tonight's Person of Interest, Amy Acker's undeniably devious, possibly crazy cybercrusader has a long-awaited showdown with — and then teams up alongside — Sarah Shahi's cold-blooded supersoldier, Samantha Shaw. "Shaw knows that when she's with Root, s--t's gonna go down," Shahi says. "One or both of them will wind up in the hospital, but it's gonna be fun."
