If you watched the season finales of “The Amazing Race” or “Survivor“, you probably caught a couple of glimpses of Paula Abdul’s return to network television. CBS definitely took advantage of the eyeballs watching those shows to pimp “Live to Dance” to the max. With the show closing in on its January 4th premiere date, CBS just released its first full length trailer. Based on first impressions, I’m thinking Paula… better luck next time.

If you ever wondered what “So You Think You Can Dance” and “America’s Got Talent” would look like if they combined their formats, this is what the result would be. Which brings me to this point? Do we really need another dancing competition show? Personally, I say no. Out of all the projects Paula Abdul was considering as her first permanent post-Idol gig, this wouldn’t have been my first choice. My vote goes to the flash mob dance show NBC was considering. Instead she chose “Live To Dance” which is based on the hit British dance show “Got To Dance“. Just because it’s a hit across the pond, doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll translate over here. You needn’t look any further than ABC’s winter bomb “Skating with the Stars” as exhibit A.

The best thing going for “Live To Dance” is that vintage cray cray Paula is back. In the two-minute long trailer, Abdul is exhibiting moments of what made American Idol must-see television in its hey day. She slurs out one-liners like “I want amazing people to live in their unique ability” or “You are exactly what makes people live to dance”. God, I missed her nonsensical commentaries.

As a kid, I loved watching the Belgian reporter, TinTin tackle mysteries all over the globe. Some of my favorites were The Crab With The Golden Claws, The Seven Crystal Balls and Cigars of the Pharaoh. What I found out via Empire Magazine not only shocked but excited me. The genius minds of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are collaborating to recreate one of TinTin’s biggest adventures to be released in fall, 2011.

The two are working together to produce The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of the Unicorn. This was also one of my favorite TinTin adventures so I can see what these two decided to work on this one. With both Jackson and Spielberg known for their big budget blockbuster hits, this film is sure to be no exception. Think the adventure of Lord of the Rings from Peter and the animation of Avatar from Steven and you’ll have this movie.

We’ve highlighted YouTube’s Most Watched Videos of 2010 and Gawker’s 100 Viral Video Mashup, and now here’s another worth checking out. Videogum has released their annual montage of the Best Viral Videos of 2010. The way they make the clips flow together coupled with their choice of videos and the order in which they put them in is perfect.

Videogum has summed up the year’s most ridiculous and hilarious videos into a few minutes, but they have a disclaimer:

This compilation is comprehensive but is in no way complete. Just off the top of my head, I can think of a dozen videos that for one reason or another were not included despite being real joys to watch. For example, Dad Ruins Justin Bieber Just Like Dad Ruins Everything. And for another example, Pants on the Ground. Ultimately, the retrospective of the Best Viral Videos of 2010 is created by a human being, i.e. a Mistake Factory, so please cut him some slack, whoever he is. Oh, and a quick message to 2011: GOOD LUCK, PAL.

Pauly D Gets His Own Show

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

What becoming just as common as Reality Shows? Well, Reality Show spinoffs, of course. MTV has announced that old Pauly D of the Jersey Shore is going to have his own reality show following his life as a DJ in Las Vegas. Pauly D, whose real name is Paul Delvecchio, began filming the reality show with MTV in October. Pauly D had shot the pilot for his new series with 495 Productions in September and MTV was on board to pick it up.

The announcement was made by Chris Linn, Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Promotions at MTV. He explained, “[Pauly D has] distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with. We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.”

Enrique Iglesias Wants To F*ck You Tonight

In: Donovan, Music

When did Enrique Iglesias get all bad ass on us? Back in the day, he’d be happy just to “Bailamos” with a pretty girl in a music video. Now he wants to get all freakadeak with a harem of women for the whole world to see. What would Anna Kournikova think? I guess now that Ricky Martin has professed his love for the boys, Enrique can claim the latin heartthrob spot for the ladies left vacant by Martin.

Coming off his first hit in nine years, “I Like It”, Iglesias is hoping his next release will keep his new streak alive. The music video for “Tonight (I’m Loving You)” was supposed to premiere in January 2011, but the video has somehow leaked on the internet. Not only was it leaked, but the version released first was the explicit version. That’s right folks. Enrique wants to f*ck you tonight instead of love you. I guess romance really is dead.

The super racy track features Ludacris and DJ Frank E. The explicit version of the song was included on the French Limited Edition of his “Euphoria” Album. Most likely, the raunchy version will never see an official push in North America. Thank God for the internet. Just when I though Keri Hilson’s “The Way You Love Me” was the raunchiest video of the year, Enrique squeaks in at the 11th hour with a strong contender. Check it out below.

Extreme Caroling: When Good Carolers Go Bad

In: Patrick, Random Reads

This is brilliantly hilarious. A group of eager Christmas carolers feel there shouldn’t be a curfew for spreading Christmas cheer and decide to start singing on people’s doorsteps, regardless of what time it is. Naturally, most residents are not very merry about this idea when it wakes them up. One guy eventually calls the cops, when the carolers refuse to leave.

The 5-0 eventually arrive (three cars), saying the sheriff’s office is looking for “Angry Christmas Carolers”! Hahaha. After chatting with the cops for a while (who themselves can’t even keep a straight face), they eventually perform for their songs for them – full out.

The video then busts out into a sequence of clips of the carolers singing in Target, Walmart, Denny’s, 24 Hour Fitness, and more. You have to watch this.

The multi-million dollar Broadway production headed up by Bono, The Edge and Julie Taymor seems to be spinning more and more webs of danger as the show begins to move into previews. The musical that has been in production since 2002 has faced a lot of hardship throughout its entire creation including losing all of its funding and multiple injuries on the cast of the production.

With a new producer on board helping them raise enough money to keep the show afloat, previews have been carried out in the last few days. However, during a preview on Monday night, the unthinkable happened. During one of the major stunt sequences involving Spider-Man rescuing Mary-Jane from the top of a rooftop, (hydraulic lift), the stunt man fell from the top of the unit when his fly cable snaps. A 30ft drop into the pit causes a crash and stir in the audience as a scream erupts from the pit and shouts for someone to call 911. A video of the performance caught the fall on tape.
