Alex Trebek Goes All Fresh Prince

On Jeopardy! the other night, the category was TV.

Dollar value: $800.

Clue: "In the theme to this 90's sitcom, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, & I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!'"

Correct answer, and sort of a no-brainer: "What is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?'"

What made it memorable, and in my mind, just a little creepy, was the way Alex Trebek read the clue.

I'm sure he was going for a rap style, trying to imitate Will Smith, but it sounded more like a cross between Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and Orson Welles.

Plus, he pronounced "later" as "lay-terr," not "lay-tah." No self-respecting rapper would do that, Alex!

Freddie Not Impressed by Kanye

Yesterday, we took a look at the abomination others called Kanye West's cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

We weren't the only ones who were thinking that.

Check out this amazing mashup of Freddie Mercury "reacting" to Kanye's performance.

And then Kanye "reacting" to Freddie's performance.

If it doesn't make you laugh, there is no hope.

 

And by the way, to those who might think that Freddie actually had something to say - as I saw a few times on Facebook yesterday - please keep in mind that Freddie passed away in 1991.

What Say You on The Donald, Jon Stewart?

Okay, this one's a few days old, but well worth watching.

On The Daily Show the other night, Jon Stewart was beside himself on the news that Donald Trump hadn't yet officially filed his paperwork to seal the deal on his presidential candidacy.

Jon's been hoping and praying for Trump's candidacy, just to make his last six weeks on the show palatable...

And now... Well, see how Jon reacted...

I'm gonna miss this guy...

Tackle Made by Number 99, JJ Watt!

Sunday night in Milwaukee, an overzealous fan crashed the stage during a Zac Brown concert.

He was dancing a little too close to the band, having a great old time, and never saw what hit him and leveled him on the stage.

What did hit him?

Houston Texans' defensive end JJ Watt. All 6'5" and 300 pounds of him absolutely flattened the guy.

When he was able to collect his senses, JJ unceremoniously escorted him offstage, to the wild cheers of the audience.

I wonder if that's going to get JJ any training camp points with his coach?

Nobody messes with Zac Brown Band

From the Mouths of Babes

We're talking babes as in young folks here, so please try to follow along.

The phrase means that young children often speak with great wisdom.

So who better to consult about the Supreme Court's decision last week about marriage equality, right?

That's what the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! were thinking when they sent their Man on the Street out on the street to see what young kids thought about gay marriage.

The responses are pretty funny.

Kids explain same-sex marriage.

Happy Anniversary, Let's Break Up

Say it ain't so, BenJen!

On Monday, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary.

Yesterday, they announced they'll be filing for divorce...

Think maybe somebody was so wrapped up in being Batman, he forgot his annivesary?

Actually, those in the know - you know, the folks at TMZ - have seen this coming for a while.

And it will be a while before it's all finalized, say the TMZers. Not until all the financial and custody matters are settled.

So, don't be sending the divorce greeting cards just yet, kids.

"If It Happens Fast, It's Almost Lethal"

Chris Farley became famous superfast, thanks to his tenure on Saturday Night Live.

And it seems like he left the planet just as quickly - some say a victim of his fame.

He was only 33 when he died of a drug overdose in 1997.

Now there's a new documentary about the comic actor's life, featuring a bunch of his contemporaries and workmates, talking about him, what his sudden fame did to him, and what he's left behind.

I Am Chris Farley is set for release on August 1 according to most sources. Check out the trailer.
 

David Spade, Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon and more reflect on the comedian’s life and legacy in I Am Chris Farley.

"Once You've Had One, You Can't Have Another"

Chris Pratt put on his best Jason Statham face and outfit on Saturday Night Live to do a promo for Jason Statham's Jason Steakums.

Funny idea. Halfway decent impression.

But a pretty lame bit. Which could explain why they cut it from the show.

And Kenan Thompson as Ving Rhames?

What the heck are you thinking about, SNL writers? Besides your summer vacation, that is.

Why, Kanye, Why?

By now, you've probably heard that - despite 150,000 petition signers who begged for it not to happen - Kanye West headlined the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend.

He got stage-stormed by a local comic - that was pretty cool, him getting a dose of his own medicine.

But once the dust had settled from that, Kanye did something unforgiveable.

He "performed" a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

He hit every third note, which is about as many of the lyrics he got right.

I'm sorry, it was atrocious.

But don't take my word for it - check it out yourself.

Don't worry, it's a short video...

Maybe You Should Stick with Footballs, Aaron

Olivia Munn posted a pretty cool video to Instagram on Sunday.

It shows her working on her sword skills - which are pretty impressive - as she preps for a role in an upcoming X-Men movie.

Behind her, Aaron Rodgers - her boyfriend and quarterback of the Green Bay Packers - works on his considerably less impressive stick-waving skills, trying to mimic Olivia's moves.

It's pretty funny - and proof positive that Aaron's better off tossing a pigskin around than being trusted with a sword.
