America sent two more artists home tonight, amid a flurry of standout musical performances, including one that involved the Muppets! Read on for more. Tuesday nights on The Voice are always bittersweet. We generally get some great musical performances, like tonight's standout between coach Cee Lo Green and Kermit the Frog, but we also have to say sayonara to two singing hopefuls. And tonight, one coach was left with no one left in the game! The Music Amanda Brown and Trevin Hunte opened the show with Lady Gaga's "Marry The Night".

The Weekend Rent: Four Reasons to Go Green

Kermit the Frog sang "It's Not Easy Being Green," and this weekend in theaters Ryan Reynolds will find out just how true that statement is as he tries to make Green Lantern fly at the box office. Green Lantern has always been one of the most obtuse comic superheroes ever concocted—he has a power ring that enables him to create anything he imagines out of green energy—and the movie pits him against a villain named Parallax that is, for lack of a better description, an amorphous dark cloud with a mean face that sucks the soul right out of you. Audiences will have to decide if Reynolds wrapped in a green energy suit is enough to get excited about. In the meantime, check out four of Green Lantern's cinematic forbearers on DVD and Blu-ray that show just how...

Sesame Street: Michelle Obama celebrates show's anniversary

"Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Stree-ee-t, how to get to Sesame Street?" But of course I can! Just turn on your television set any time after 10 November 1969 and there it is – the slightly tatty New York thoroughfare peopled with an exuberant mix of fuzzy puppets from Jim Henson's near-magical workshop, flesh-and-blood adults and children from different races and ethnic backgrounds, all of which was designed to reflect for pretty much the first time the inner-city, multicultural, slightly tatty real lives of the vast majority of intended young viewers.

'Eureka' - It's Not Easy Being Green

This article may contain spoilers. This week's episode was a return to the fun-loving wackiness that we know and love in Eureka. It started off with an influx of hot-headed bowlers from Area 51 bringing with them a rivalry that triggered many sophisticated practical jokes, ranging from invisible force-fields to gamma radiation poisoning which turned Fargo's team completely green. The "little green men" jokes combined with Kermit the Frog references were pretty hysterical and put us in the right frame of mind to willing accept that the cleaner, Big Ed, had a pet named "Spot" -- a huge green blob that fed off of radiation.
