Our top moments of the week:
13. Best Reveal: Granted, Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) shows a lot of skin in the first episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine — hello, Speedo! — but it's his boss, Capt. Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), who really exposes himself. Ray explains that, even though he caught the infamous Disco Strangler way back when, he's only now been able to lead a command because he revealed that he was...
Jennifer Carpente and Michael C. Hall
After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday.
From the beginning, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills...
Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus, Paula Patton
Paula Patton has finally gone on record about her husband Robin Thicke's raunchy performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth
After months of reported tension, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have officially split up, People reports.

Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus
Robin Thicke is speaking out for the first time since his head-turning performance with Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV VMAs.
In an on-camera interview with Star Magazine, Thicke says he wasn't surprised about the controversy that surrounded their racy "Blurred Lines" duet. "We...
Summer's over and with that ends "Blurred Lines"'s reign as the song of the season. Fortunately, we already have a great contender for the song of the fall: "The Fox" by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis.
While Robin Thicke wondered, "What rhymes with 'hug me?'" this catchy Nordic tune isn't afraid to ask the tough questions, like, "What does the fox say?"
Miley Cyrus has broken her silence about her controversial Video Music Awards performance, in which she asserted her adulthood by motor-boating a backup dancer's butt, simulating sex with a foam finger and twerking on Robin Thicke.
"I don't pay attention to the negative," Cyrus told MTV, adding that she isn't the first to cause scandal on the VMAs stage. "Madonna's done it. Britney [Spears]' done it. Anyone that performs, that's what you're looking for. You're wanting to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time were like, 'We're about to make history right now.'"
Bill Murray and David Letterman
Our top moments of the week:
13. Biggest Disappointment: In the midst of a lackluster final season, Dexter reveals that the identity of the season-long villain, The Brain Surgeon, is Vogel's son ... whom no one cares about. This is almost as bad as when we learned that Edward James Olmos was a figment of Colin Hanks' imagination in Season 6. Anticlimactic much?
12. Sauciest Critique: Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson never fails to brighten the So You Think You Can Dance judges' panel with his cheeky wit and genuine fanboy fawning. In his latest visit, he vows to...
This week, Miley Cyrus introduced twerking to the masses at MTV's Video Music Awards — and inspired some hilarious reaction shots.

Meredith Vieira also launched her own YouTube channel and the official trailer for Ravenswood premiered. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
