2. Charlie from Lost

If you booked the show Lost, your life would be set, right? Not for Dominic Monaghan.

Macy Gray's "B.O.B." Video Is a Love Song to Her Vibrator—Watch!

Macy Gray's
If you've ever wanted to see an animated singing vibrator, now is your chance thanks to Macy Gray. The Grammy winner, who is best known for her late-'90s hit "I Try," recently released the music video for her song "B.O.B."   At first glance, it looks like we're watching Blue's Clues, but we then realize the happy, dancing, blue-faced toy is not for children but for Macy's vagina. This video could be great in sex-ed classrooms because it does a really great job alluding to what a vibrator does without actually telling us. "I turn him on/ We go, baby, go." Uh, Mr. Stevenson, what does that mean? And reading into the blue color and male name of her vibrator,...

Netflix Loses Some Viacom Shows As Amazon Snaps Them Up

Amazon recently beefed up its originals library by giving full series orders to two comedy pilots and three children's programs. Now, the up-and-coming platform has struck a deal with the potential to expand its offerings in both of those areas. Viacom, days after it took many of its shows off of Netflix, has struck a deal that will bring hundreds of those shows to Amazon. The shows moving to Amazon include Blue's Clues, Spongebob Squareparts, and Tosh.0. In other words, children's shows and comedies--the same genres in which Amazon just greenlit originals. Two of Viacom's biggest assets are Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, and Amazon may covet more shows from these networks. In particular, I'm sure the platform would love to snap up The Daily Show, which is currently available on Hulu. Viacom moved the shows to Amazon after it could not renew its deal with Netflix. The newer platform

'Dancing with the Stars' Results: Who's in the Finale?

'Dancing with the Stars' Results: Who's in the Finale?
There's a lot going on in tonight's results show: we're finally getting around to that 300th episode celebration, Avril Levigne and The Wanted are stopping by, and also I guess we'll get our four finalists.

It's hard to get too excited about that last one -- we've had our top four for a couple months now -- but maybe the sponsored Stars of Dance segment will be extra cool for the 300th episode or something. I'm not saying that tonight's episode will be an exercise in fluffy redundancy, or that it will have all the suspense of a Blue's Clues episode, but I am basically kind of saying that actually -- ABC seems to think so as well, as they've axed these Dancing with the Stars Results shows from the upcoming fall season.

Next week's showdown between Aly, Kellie, Jacoby and Zendaya will definitely be compelling television. 'Til then, here's
