On February 11, 2004, the fourth episode of the second season of Chappelle's Show aired. The series had built a great deal of buzz with its 12-episode first season and had some classic sketches over the second season's first three episodes — including "The Racial Draft" and "The Niggar Family" — but nothing compared to what happened that night: The Rick James installment of "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories" debuted. Besides being an incredible, hilarious sketch that is able to tell a complete story with both pathos and dense punch line concentration, it instantly became a phenomenon. Very early in the days of social media — Facebook was weeks old — people shared the sketch any way they could, whether it was through MySpace, Aim away messages, or just shouting "I'm Rick James, bitch" so often that people had to go home and see what they were talking about.

The Super Bowl is usually the highest-rated single television broadcast of the year, so the post time slot is probably the most coveted in TV because of the massive lead-in audience (upwards of 100 million viewers).

More often than not, a pilot for a new series won’t bring in the same high ratings as a special episode of an established series. Once the Big Game is over, most viewers will go ahead and switch the channel. Unless your a fan of the winning team, and care to sit through the post-game wrap up, »
Former child star Melissa Gilbert was a guest on "Watch What Happens Live" Wednesday (Jan. 22), and host Andy Cohen wanted to go a little deeper into some things she wrote about in her 2010 book, "Prairie Tale," where the "Little House on the Prairie" star speaks quite candidly about growing up in Hollywood in the 1970s and '80s.
Cohen: Did Rob Lowe (her one-time fiance) ask you to take anything out of the book?
Gilbert: "He asked me to take out the word 'pretty' when I referred to him. That was it. ... 'Just could you do one thing? Could you take out the word 'pretty'? I hate it when people call me pretty.'"
Cohen: On a scale of 1-10, how big an a-hole is Scott Baio?
If you think getting up in front of a crowded bar to sing is difficult, then you probably wouldn’t do well as a contestant on truTV’s Killer Karaoke.
The ridiculously hilarious and slightly demented competition show returns Feb. 20 for a new season with new host Mark McGrath. Contestants attempt to sing karaoke hits without missing a word while facing some extreme and bizarre challenges.
This year, Killer Karaoke is upping the ante with a fresh new format: Each episode’s competition will begin with six contestants singing an opening number, after which they will be ranked based on a scoring system. »
