'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Adam Sandler stops by for a low-key Super Bowl episode

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Adam Sandler stops by for a low-key Super Bowl episode
The most extraordinary thing about Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s big post-Super Bowl show? Besides a few unobtrusive cameos — compare them, for example, to Prince Presents New Girl: A Royal Post-Game Engagement Brought To You by Ford Focus – Sunday’s special episode was hardly extraordinary at all. Football itself came into play only once, during a brief cold open that pitted the Nine-Niners against their archnemeses in the Fdny; both A and B-plots revolved around fairly standard shenanigans in the office and in the field; even Adam Sandler managed to keep things toned down when he popped up briefly during the show’s second half.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Adam Sandler heckles Andy Samberg and Joe Theismann breaks his other leg

Man, like we needed more football last night. But, dear "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" you get major points for Terry Crews touchdown dancing to "The Karate Kid's" "You're the Best Around" (seriously, someone Google Joe Esposito and find out what he's up to) playing in the background during the episode opener.

Cleaning House

The precinct is in need of some shaping up, and Terry and Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) are going to make some changes to get things moving more productively. 

They're so cute when they're optimistic.

Nothing they do actually creates any positive change. They make Diaz mad, thus blocking people from using the bathroom, give Gina a mirror to keep her busy with her own reflection, and reshuffle the location of the toaster and some of the desks in the department. The entire group confronts Holt and Terry to knock it off. Fairly pointless storyline, but we did get

Andy Samberg wants a Prince for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Super Bowl episode

"New Girl" may have Prince for its special post-Super Bowl Xlviii episode, but Andy Samberg is trying to get a Prince for the post-game episode of his Golden Globe-winning comedy, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine."

"We're going to get Prince Fielder from the [Texas Rangers]," he jokes to Zap2it about the big episode. "We're just gonna say 'Prince...' We'll do an ellipsis after Prince and then maybe put Fielder in parentheses."

Samberg had been out until 4 a.m. celebrating his Golden Globe win the night before he spoke to Zap2it -- "It's the only time I've ever showed up to work slightly drunk and got a standing ovation from my co-workers," he jokes -- but even sleep deprivation wouldn't get him to reveal anything too major about the comedy's big episode.

"We have Dean Winters coming back, he played a character called the Vulture. We have Fred Armisen coming back as his

"New Girl" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" promise to keep viewers entertained once the Super Bowl has come to an end. Fox has announced the details for the episodes airing after the big game and they sound promising. 

On "New Girl," which will feature previously reported guest star Prince, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Cece (Hannah Simone) are invited to a mansion party thrown by his royal badness.

Anderson Silva: Celebs & Fans React To His Horrific Leg Injury

After the Ufc icon suffered a horrible, leg-bending injury on Dec. 28, stars and fans rushed to Twitter to express their shock over seeing such a gruesome incident, and also to send their prayers to the ailing fighter.

At almost the exact same time Anderson Silva hit the ground after breaking his leg during his Ufc title fight against Chris Weidman, stars, athletes, and fans took to Twitter to post their reactions. And because Anderson’s leg-bending break was the worst sports injury since Kevin Ware‘s bone-protruding injury in March, there were too many reactions of shock, horror, and sadness to count.

Anderson Silva’s Injury: Stars & Athletes React

Though some celebrities were tweeting about the gruesome injury, most of the notable reactions came from fellow athletes — including Joe Theismann, who suffered a horrific leg break of his own in the ’80s – who wanted to wish Anderson a fast and safe recovery:

Ufc 168 video: Anderson Silva breaks his leg vs. Chris Weidman

  • Pop2it
During the Ultimate Fighting Championships, Anderson Silva had only lost one fight up until now -- to Chris Weidman, back in July when Weidman knocked out Silva in a fight when Silva was doing what some would call showing off.

Saturday (Dec. 28) the fight ended with a much more gruesome outcome. Silva was defeated by Weidman when, roughly 90 seconds into the second round, Silva kicked against Weidman and Weidman blocked. But the block resulted in a broken leg for Silva. Many on Twitter were calling it the most gruesome Ufc injury of all time.

Weidman said after the match, "The goal is to get your knee up and allow them to make contact with their shin right there. As soon as he hit me with that kick and moved backwards I knew right away. There's no real excitement in a fight finishing like that because you never want to see anyone get hurt like that.
