The 5 Best TVR Clips of the Week: Arnold Drama, 'Real Housewives' Fights & More (VIDEO)

It was a great week for TV clips. We watched 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' come back with a bang -- and an all-out brawl -- while their 'New York' counterparts fought over designer clothing, spa getaways and thugs in cocktail dresses.
We were also entertained by the coverage of Arnold Schwarzenegger's secret love child scandal, some continued Osama bin Laden hilarity and the delicate nature of discussing penis transplants on late night TV with Chaz Bono.

Let's get one thing straight: 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' aren't messing around. A few table-flipping incidents look like a Miss Manners class compared to this week's premiere, which saw an insane fight break out. Among family. At a baby's christening. Classy, don't you think?
Osama bin Laden's death has accomplished something else: Making Martin Short funny again. The comedian extended bin Laden's 15 minutes of post-death fame with a beautiful song on Letterman, to the tune of Elton John's 'Candle in the Wind.'
Oh, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Really dude? Really? Well, at least his latest scandal gave the late night guys some good fodder, but no one riffed on the love child news better than Jon Stewart. His 'Daily Show' coverage came complete with pun-filled movie posters and a nod to Danny DeVito.
Chaz Bono, nee Chastity, has been in the news a lot lately for his struggles with mom Cher, post-transition. But Jimmy Kimmel didn't want to hear about his journey -- it was all about the package. Will Chaz get a penis transplant? Is that even possible? What could've been a very uncomfortable conversation with anyone else is hilarious and educational with Kimmel.
And we finally found out who the 'Real Housewives of New York' "thug in a cocktail dress" was after weeks of endless promos teasing it. When LuAnn got on her high horse and started picking on Ramona -- at an anti-bullying fundraiser, no less! -- Alex gave her that grand title. We'd like to see what these women would say about their Jersey counterparts ...
