The Worst 'America's Got Talent' Finalists, Plus 5 Acts That Should've Made It

There's one general guideline for being a finalist on 'America's Got Talent': you've got to have some talent. Or so you'd think. There is definitely a lot of talent amongst the 48 acts lucky enough to make it to the live shows in Hollywood (Vegas-headlining, million-dollar worthy talent, however, remains to be seen).

Overweight People Rejoice! 'Huge' Is Honest and Funny

A comedy about weight camp? Oh boy, that could be a big problem (yes, painfully obvious pun intended.) Hollywood, that skinny-means-everything fantasyland, isn't historically sensitive when it comes to portraying heavy people.

So while a lot of the time I am doing something else whenever...

Bob Odenkirk Talks About 'Breaking Bad's' Final Episodes

If you've got one of the darkest, most intense shows on television and you need to lighten the mood, you better call Bob Odenkirk.

Currently, he plays sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman on...

Team Coco Goes Crazy at Conan O'Brien's Chicago Show

No city might be as Coco crazy as Chicago. Not only was there an actual protest in the city to support Conan O'Brien during that whole 'Tonight Show' debacle, students at Northwestern University gathered to collectively perform O'Brien's trademark string dance in solidarity. And when a pair of shows for the Chicago stop of his "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" went on...
