The Daily Show, Ricky Gervais and Jon Stewart
Our top moments of the week:
14. Most Shocking Reveal, Runner-Up: As if it wasn't gross enough that Jess came thisclose to using her super-sized box of condoms to have a one-night stand with Schmidt on New Girl, the camera cuts to the other side of Schmidt's door to show that he's already getting busy... with Cece!

Ricky Gervais, The 2012 Golden Globe Awards
Was Ricky Gervais holding back this year? Hosting the Golden Globes for the third time, the comedian opened Sunday's awards show by ribbing Eddie Murphy for pulling out as Oscar host ("When the man who said yes to Norbit says no to you, you know you're in trouble") and NBC for being America's third-place network (oh, actually, fourth).
He did get in a few zingers. His five best jabs were aimed at:
His own manhood -- "No profanity: That's fine, I've got a huge vocabulary. No nudity: See that's a shame because I've got a huge [pause] vocabulary. But a...
Is Ricky Gervais nervous about hosting the Golden Globes again? Not after last year.
"What's the worst that could happen?" Gervais told reporters Friday about his upcoming third turn as emcee at HBO's winter TV previews. "I end my career once a week, if you read the press. I only do things that end my career now. That's my fun. That's my extreme sport."
Who will he offend this year? Ricky Gervais to host Golden Globes again
Gervais, 50, came under fire last year for his offensive jokes that skewered Hugh Hefner, Charlie Sheen, the cast of Sex and the City 2 and Scientologists, among others.
