Top 5 TVR Clips of the Week: BET Gaffe, MSNBC Mayhem, New Susan Boyle & More (VIDEO)

Happy 4th of July weekend, everyone! You're probably at the beach, grilling meat over an open flame or lighting fireworks right now, but if you're not, check out these videos and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll. Then go outside or watch a baseball game!

Last week, Ben Bailey from 'Cash Cab' was in the bathroom when he won Best Gameshow host at the Daytime Emmys. This week's BET Awards gaffe tops that: a contest winner was reading the winner of the People's Choice Award, and everything went haywire. First she announced Chris Brown had won, then Rihanna, and finally Drake, who came on stage to accept the award. A BET rep later said the mistake was his fault, and as it turns out, Brown was the correct winner. Awkwarrrrd.

If Anna Graceman is next Jackie Evancho, then 'America's Got Talent' contestant Cindy Chang may be the next Susan Boyle. A 42-year-old homemaker, Chang had always wanted to be a singer, but her parents dissauded her from trying. After she rocked the house with an amazing operatic performance, they might be questioning their advice.

After rumors swirled that 'Two and a Half Men' would actually kill of Charlie Sheen's character, Jimmy Kimmel hit the streets of LA asking kids for advice on how the show should do it. Suggestions included throwing him in a fire ant pit, blowing him up with a bazooka and a knuckle sandwich. Mildly disturbing and hilarious, kids!

Political reporter Mark Halperin put his foot in his mouth and paid the price for it Wednesday on 'Morning Joe,' when he said President Obama acted like "kind of a d***" at his press conference. Halperin was suspended immediately by MSNBC; the clip is fascinating on a number of levels, particularly watching how everyone else on set reacts as they realize what he said is way out of bounds.

Every now and again, a clip comes along that perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the 'Real Housewives' franchise. This clip of Sonja discovering that her toilet -- which has been clogged for two weeks -- is clogged with a Blackberry, is one of them. What else can I say here? Let's hope she upgraded to an iPhone.

The president is a ****; he was just speaking the truth. I love how those other spineless douchebags act after Mark speaks candidly about his encounter with Oblame-a. Sounds like a set-up to me, too. A joke? Really? Total BS!!! MSNBC probably set him up so they can fire him due to his anti-Obama opinions.

so Halperin cant call Obama a dick yet no one seems to have a problem with MSNBC running a joke from Jon Stewart where he talks about Romney & incest. so I guess one isnt allowed to speak the truth on the channel but it's ok to make things up. then they wonder why their ratings suck!
they did keep "eggin" Halperin on.they kept tellign him he was on a 7-second delay. they even showed the control room pushing buttons & then nodding to the camera. sounds like a set-up to me

I'm sorry, but why is everyone calling this a gaffe or an accident? Halperin knew EXACTLY what he was going to say and when he was going to say it. It was not a mistake on any level, it was a pre-meditated comment ment to get a reaction from his coworkers. Almost like he was trying to be the "cool kid" or something. It doesn't matter that he thought it was going to be edited or bleeped, it was a thoughtless, stupid and crass comment that he was fully aware of.
