Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire and Zach Galifianakis
This week, Katy Perry was awkwardly caught lip-syncing when her backup track failed at an awards ceremony in France, while Paul Rudd and Kate McKinnon premiered their new web series Hudson Valley Ballers. Someone adorably re-created the movie Elf using pugs, andZach Galifianakis hosted a holiday edition of "Between Two Ferns." Also, Sarah Silverman,Michael Cera and other comedians launched an ugly sweater charity campaign for Stand Up to Cancer, and the first scene of the Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire miniseries The Spoils of Babylon premiered.

Put away your jelly bracelets and your cool graffiti coats. It's time to break out your eyeliner and plaid shirts. Robin Sparkles is back on Monday's How I Met Your Mother — but she looks very different.
"It may be the craziest Robin Sparkles yet," executive producer Craig Thomas told reporters on a conference call. "We see a totally new part of Robin Sparkles' career in this."

Wonder what Milli Vanilli's Fab Morvan has been up to?
Morvan, half of the '80 musical duo, is making a comeback with his new band, SMFM. His first order of business? Revamping Milli Vanilli's hit song "Girl You Know It's True." And yes, he's singing live.
Morvan and his Milli Vanilli bandmate, Rob Pilatus, infamously returned their 1990 Grammy for best new artist after they were caught lip-synching. The debacle led multiple lawsuits against the singers and their recording company, Arista Records. In 1998, Pilatus was found dead from what was ruled an accidental overdose.
Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother
Nope, not gonna mention the kid doc by name for another 700 words or so. But boy, has Neil Patrick Harris accomplished the almost-impossible, creating a character on CBS' hit freshman laffer How I Met Your Mother (Mondays at 8:30 pm/ET) so fresh and different that we almost forget his original TV incarnation. (Of course, that little escapade with Harold & Kumar helped the cause.) Just how much does the actor love creating Barney trouble? Here's what he had to tell TVGuide.com.

Everybody Hates ChrisCould someone please tell me why the folks at UPN, or the future CW, or whatever the hell we're calling this channel in limbo, showed a rerun of Everybody Hates Chris that I've seen not once but twice already? (Yet they're still showing new episodes of the wretched South Beach. Go figure.) This episode is one of the edgier ones, though, with Chris being tapped for the basketball team strictly because of his race. As Chris Rock says, "This is how Milli Vanilli must have felt when they were walking up to accept that Grammy." It's an amusing conceit that is actually more scary than funny. Of course, short and scrawny Chris sucks at b-ball. If only the coach at Corleone had seen Carbon Copy with Denzel Washing
