Twitter-Wood experienced a small Christmas miracle today as an outpouring of photography and song revealed that a double rainbow can still grab more attention than Lindsay Lohan in our feed. There were enough posts to fill a special-edition Tw coffee-table book with images from those who saw it... and laments from those were out of town and missed it. But even that book wouldn't be able to capture "Twilight" actor Justin Chon's musical celebration of this natural spectacle.
Other highlights of the last 24 hours included Steve Martin's continuing jury duty adventure, as well as Kevin Smith's triumphant declaration that he's finished his sound mix for "Red State." You'll find those retweets and Christmas-related shock from Anna Kendrick after the jump.

In August, studio Dimension announced plans for a sequel to Piranha 3D and, two months later, revealed that the sequel's creative team would be director John Gulager and screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who worked together previously on 2006's Feast and its two sequels.
The cast for the sequel, Piranha 3Dd, has yet to be announced, though Bloody-Disgusting reports that an unexpected character could be returning for more prehistoric piranha action. While doing press for Death Race 2, Ving Rhames revealed that his character Deputy Fallon, who seemingly perished in the movie, could make a comeback.

It’s winter break, you guys. You know what that means, don’t you?
A month of repeats, that’s what.
Yes, as much as winter break signifies rest and rejuvenation for the college student population of America, it’s all about boredom and monotony in the television world. Sure, a few cable reality shows are still going on and the occasional scripted show, but for the most part, we’re out of luck until the first week of the new year at the earliest. But don’t fret, TV fans, as there is plenty of good stuff to tide you over during the blizzards and endless holiday specials.
Here are five shows that you would do well in catching up on/completing during the holiday break:
Freaks & Geeks (NBC)
How many episodes: 18

Elsewhere, Miley Cyrus is still grabbing attention with that bong video from last week, and Seth MacFarlane suggested how she might have avoided being identified. And speaking of uncomfortable moments, an alternate "Yogi Bear" ending that you're not likely to see in theaters has been making the tweet rounds and was passed along by Paul Scheer to his followers today. You'll understand what I'm talking about down below, where you'll also find Jessica Alba sharing a special moment with MTV News' own Joshua Horowitz.

Hey gang! You've got to watch this great video that shows Booboo killing Yogi Bear. The scene is taken directly from the final scene in the film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, only the characters have been replaced by CG versions of Yogi Bear and BooBoo. It's a very serious and somber scene which makes it even more funny.
Watch the video below and tell us what you think! I would watch the new Yogi Bear movie if it had stuff like this in it.
Thanks to comedian Paul Scheer, this clip of BooBoo doming Yogi with a shotgun has been making the rounds. Initially rumored to be the work of the upcoming feature film's in-house animators, the short is actually by Edmund Earle. Interesting factoid: The score is a thematically fitting cue from 2007's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. Enjoy the pathos!

If you're like me, you've got zero interest in seeing Yogi Bear. Which is no big deal -- it's a movie expressly for kids, after all. But what if it had a more adult tone? Hit the jump to see how the end of the film might have played out if Yogi Bear was powered by a more dramatic and violent plot. Paul Scheer informed the world of this clip via Twitter , and lore already going around, in part due to Scheer, is that it is an in-house alternate ending made by the film's actual animators. But the end of the video clearly says that's not the case. As the final credits announce, this parody is the brainchild of Risd-educated animator Edmund Earle . A tip of the hat, then, to Mr. Earle, for mixing one of the least interesting films of 2010 with one of the best of 2007. (That 'best of '07' being, »

· Every person on the Internet has sent you the alternate ending for Yogi Bear in the last 30 minutes, but that doesn't mean you can't watch it all over again. And again. And again. At least until the clip gets yanked down. Per comedian Paul Scheer, this homage to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford was done by 25-year-old animator Edmund Earle, who should now get a Medal of Freedom. Or something. Click ahead to watch post-haste, then stick around for more Buzz Break. »
All this time we’ve been rushing to judge Yogi Bear based on the stupid previews, not knowing that the alternate ending for the film was actually a brutal, heart-wrenching homage to The Assassination of Jesse James (the parody was apparently made by the film’s actual animators.) Why would an audience of four-year-olds not want to see this ending? Boo Boo’s only doing what he has to, plus he’ll be set up for life when he collects the reward. Are children really that sickened by the old-west notion of cowardice? Cause that’s literally the only reason I can think of for not showing this to kids: (via Paul Scheer) »

This is simply amazing. According to comedian/actor Paul Scheer, who first tweeted this, we have a video done by the real animators of Yogi Bear, directed by the actual Eric Brevig. Update: The actual creator is Edmund Earle and he speaks to WSJ about the video here.
This is a parody of the climatic scene in Andrew Dominik‘s The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford and it is done beautiful. Scheer’s warning that the video would get taken down persuaded me to put it in a more permanent place. Check out the alternate ending below, as well as an earlier piece of adult marketing.
For context, here is the original:
Does this brilliant piece of marketing convince you to check out Yogi Bear?

An idea that’s not dum dum: Adult Swim has ordered 12 episodes of Ntsf:sd:suv, a comedy from The League’s Paul Scheer that parodies police procedurals. The concept began as a skit for Rob Corddry’s Childrens Hospital.
Mira Sorvino will topline Union Square, an indie about two estranged sisters. They should head on over to Chat ‘n Chew for some mac and cheese — that’ll inspire anyone to patch things up quickly.

Look out, CBS; you no longer hold the distinction for most bizarre sitcom title. #$*! My Dad Says is passing the torch to a new series on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim Channel. How’s this for a name? National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle – or Ntsf:sd:suv for short.
Ntsf:sd:suv – an obvious parody of the endless police procedurals dominating the airwaves – just received a 12-episode order from Adult Swim, the adult-oriented cable television offshoot of Cartoon Network, owned by Turner Broadcasting System. The program’s roots stem from a mock promo that aired during the network’s medical show spoof, Rob Corrdry’s Childrens’ Hospital.
The project, created by and starring Paul Scheer, somehow managed to buck the trend of going through a pilot stage and skipped right on through to a series order. Scheer,…

Exclusive: Adult Swim's next series is a mouthful. The network has handed a 12-episode order to Paul Scheer's Ntsf:sd:suv which, as the title suggests, is a parody of the ubiquitous genre of crime procedurals. Ntsf:sd:suv, created by and starring Scheer, originated as a mock promo (video below) that aired on another Adult Swim parody series, Rob Corddry's Childrens Hospital, which spoofs medical shows. Scheer, who guest starred on Childrens Hospital, is writing Ntsf:sd:suv and will executive produce the series with Childrens Hospital executive producer Jon Stern. The project leapfrogged the pilot stage, going from the clip, directed by Eric Appel, straight to series. The promo features other actors, including Rob Riggle, Brandon Johnson and and June Raphael. Some of them are expected to appear in episodes of Ntsf:sd:suv but not as regulars. (Riggle recently inked a development deal with CBS and is attached to a Robert Smigel project there. »

Jeff Schaffer, a showrunner on FX's "The League," claims that in the first 22 years of his life he never heard the term "showrunner." Short of writing for the Harvard Lampoon in college, he had virtually no exposure to the entertainment industry. At Harvard he majored in biological anthropology, "which I've utilized in L.A. as the study of man sucking up to other men to get a job," he quips. But he now boasts an extensive Hollywood résumé, including stints as an executive producer on "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm."By contrast, Jackie Marcus Schaffer, his wife and fellow "League" showrunner, was quite familiar with the term. Though she grew up assuming she'd be an attorney, she's a Los Angeleno who went to school with Tori Spelling, daughter of producer Aaron Spelling. But after graduating from Georgetown University, where she studied political theory, she was drawn to show business and »

The League’s based on a premise unimaginable only a couple years earlier. No, The League has nothing to do with superpowers, it’s a fantasy football league that Pete (Mark Duplass) has won for three years straight. But, regardless of the thing that brings them together, the idea of men getting together to compete and act stupid is timeless and The League has assembled some crack comic performers and improv vets to pull it off, including Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Stephen Rannazzisi, Jonathan Lajoie and Katie Aselton. The results show more promise than actual results in the first year (often the case with comedies), but there’s enough here to think that the show might come together eventually, there’s no lack of talent, and it regardless of if you play fantasy football or not. My review of The League follows after the jump.
The show starts with Pete »

It's been a bad week for entertainment industry deaths, with "A-Team" and "Rockford Files" writer/producer Stephen Cannell joining a list that already included Greg Giraldo, Tony Curtis, Arthur Penn and Sally Menke. Patton Oswalt took note and proposed a tribute on his account.
In other news, a massive storm of photography hit Twitter-Wood over the last 24 hours. It was tough to pick out a winner, but John Travolta fans should enjoy the post from "Weird Al" Yankovic that earned the honor. Check it out along with David Hasselhoff's new "golf cart" and reactions to "The Social Network" and "Catfish" after the jump.

Paul Scheer forwards along this amazing 20-second movie clip. Any explanation would detract from the awesome, just watch: Apparently it’s from The Howling 3, one of the best-acted werewolf rape threequels in cinematic history, right next to These Werewolves Be Rapin’ Everybody Out Here, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Antoine. As always, I’ll be thanking the internet by cramming a rolled-up 20 into my cd drive. You earned it, buddy! »
