Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny Mccarthy
Our top moments of the week:
8. Don't Caption This Award: MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry lands in hot water during her "What's So Funny About 2013?" segment when her panelists, actress Pia Glenn and comedian Dean Obeidallah, take aim at Mitt Romney's grandson Kieran, who is black. "One of these things is not like the others; one of these things is not the same," Glenn says after the family's Christmas photo pops up. Obeidallah adds: "I think that this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican Party. The RNC — at the convention — they find the one black person." Harris-Perry chimes in as well, joking that...
Fans of Community are understandably wary about the fifth season, given the fairly hollow simulacra that aired last spring. But with the return of creator Dan Harmon, the show has regained the sense of deliberate chaos and freewheeling playfulness that originally earned it such a devoted (and vocal) fan base.
For Harmon's unprecedented return, you can thank none other than Joel McHale, who played a crucial role in NBC bringing back the controversial showrunner. Comparing Harmon to Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) and Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development), both of whom are guest-starring this season, McHale preached the benefits of letting a series be dictated by a singular vision. "There was some really good stuff last year, but it did not....
Talk about a backhanded compliment. Adam Sander has been named the most overpaid actor of 2013 by Forbes.
Though Sandler still commands a fat paycheck, most of his recent films have been Razzie fodder and box office duds. The magazine estimates that for every dollar Sandler received on his last three films, which include Jack & Jill and That's My Boy, the movies returned an average of $3.40. However, there are exceptions when Sandler's price tag pays off, as is the case with Grown Ups 2, one of Sandler's best performing films, which was not counted toward this year's ranking because of its later release date.
Good Morning America
This week, the cast of Happy Endings got in on the Harlem Shake phenomenon, Jimmy Kimmel dared his viewers to give their wives and girlfriends terrible Valentine's Day gifts, and Robin Roberts returned to Good Morning America after a lengthy medical leave. With Sunday's Oscar broadcast quickly approaching, Saturday Night Live and host Christoph Waltz took the opportunity to parody Best Picture nominee Django Unchained, and Hulu offered a sneak peek at one of the nominees for Best Animated Short. Check out those clips and more in this week's Top Videos:
Storage Wars star Mark Balelo was found dead Monday of an apparent suicide, TMZ reports. He was 40.
John Ingle, who played Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital for nearly two decades, died Sunday, according to a post on Facebook. He was 84.
Zooey Deschanel, Saturday Night Live
The tragic death of Whitney Houston went unmentioned during Saturday Night Live, but the variety show paid silent tribute by going to commercial with a picture of the pop star with Molly Shannon from a 1996 Mary Katherine Gallagher sketch. (Strange timing: Up All Night star and former cast member Maya Rudolph, who did a Houston impression when she was on the show, is hosting next week.)
Host Zooey Deschanel opened the show with her ukulele to perform a humorous song about that guy who forgets Valentine's Day and tries to cover it up with Happy Birthday balloons, an old copy of USA Today and an 11:15 "reservation" at Olive Garden...
