VIDEO: America's Got Talent's Triumph of the Parrot Spirit

Echo the parrot

Good news for those who look to birds for entertainment: Echo, the parrot who killed his first America's Got Talent audition but clammed up with "stage fright" during the Vegas round, soared on the season's first live show Tuesday night. Fun fact: birds don't just fly "Over the Rainbow"; they sing it as well. I think we can all agree that Echo is a very nice analog alternative to all the CGI talking animals that populate pop culture...

VIDEO: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Zany Howie Mandel

Howie Mandel

If the only information about OCD came from Howie Mandel, I would think that talking about having it was its worst symptom. He's practically turned an affliction into shtick! Anyway, he mentioned it again on his Tonight Show with Jay Leno appearance Monday night to promote the start of the live rounds on America's Got Talent. He also came out in an Elizabethan collar for no reason other than to be wacky. What a card!...

Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation

Will Leslie choose her career or love? Has Tom left City Hall for good? Will Ron's eyebrows ever grow back? Last season's finale of Parks and Recreation was packed with more cliff-hangers than a whole season of The Killing!

Parks and Recreation finale: Will Ben and Leslie heat things up? And where's Tom going?

VIDEO: Octomom Brings Babies, Bedlam to Today

The Today Show

Octomom Nadya Suleman stopped by Friday's Today show to... uh, who knows? She could barely get a word in above the din of eight toddlers freaking out and almost destroying the Today show set (and themselves). Ironically, the virtual inability to communicate makes this interview more telling than any subdued, one-on-one sit-down could be: You get a real sense of this family's inner chaos...

VIDEO: America's Got Talent Presents Visual Nonsense, Names Its Top 48

America's Got Talent

On Wednesday's episode, America's Got Talent entered its second round of Las Vegas auditions (these count as semifinals, right?), which meant a second round of ridiculousness from acts that have come before. None — not the big guy with the freestyle dance and the too-short shirt, not the tween girl group who sound like The Chipettes without any vocal altering, not the young rappers/wappers, not the far-from-angelic wing-wearer — matched the weirdness of the geriatric duo consisting of a pianist and an acrobat. The best thing about this is that unlike, say, Narcissister, this pair's act doesn't seem self-consciously weird — it mostly feels accidental and blissfully unaware. The banana-eating, though, is a bit precious...
