This week, Jimmy Fallon and Julianna Margulies teamed up for a SaturdayNight Live-esque sketch on The Tonight Show, and SNL alum Nasim Pedrad revealed her Aziz Ansari impersonation on Conan. An amazing mashup fused Orange Is the New Black with The Golden Girls, and competitive eating champion Takeru Kobayashi went up against ... a hamster. Oh, and Bryan Cranston performed a one-man "MLB on TBS" postseason show. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Jessica
You've probably already Season 6's first teaser, which features Stefan telling Elena to move on. Well, there's a reason their convo wasn't face-to-face. When the season begins, Stefan will definitely not be anywhere near Mystic Falls. In fact, he will have taken up a surprising new profession in his new "home." And while we're the topic of professions, Alaric also has a new job. Hey, newly resurrected vampires have rent to pay too!
How long will Talia be sticking around on NCIS: LA? — Mary
Sorry, Densi 'shippers: It doesn't look like Talia (Mercedes Masohn) is going anywhere soon....
In planning this year's Emmy Awards, host Seth Meyers and his executive producer, Mike Shoemaker, took a cue from the Golden Globes. Shoemaker, who spoke with TV Guide Magazine behind the Nokia Theatre right after Monday night's telecast, says he and Meyers wanted to emulate how the Globes open by going straight to the jokes.
If you take comfort in the Emmy Awards' almost shocking predictability in rewarding so many of the same shows and stars year after year, this might have been your favorite Emmy show ever. Otherwise, good luck distinguishing this rather dreary ceremony from any other year's. Instead, maybe it's worth looking ahead to next fall, when Breaking Bad will be out of the running and (lighting a candle to the Academy powers that be) Mad Men's Jon Hamm might finally get his Emmy after losing seven in a row, although at this point I wouldn't count on it. (It would help if Mad Men raises its game for its last stand.)
Can anyone defeat Matthew McConaughey? Scratch that — can anyone defeat Modern Family? We'll find out Monday at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards (8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT). In the meantime, check out our picks for the top races and tell us yours.
