Michael Buble, Ed Helms Christmas VideoWhat's better than a digital short featuring the very charming Michael Bublé? A digital short featuring Bublé and the musically inclined star of NBC's 'The Office,' Ed Helms!

Helms and Bublé teamed up to do three digital shorts for NBC's 'A Michael Bublé Christmas' (Tues., Dec. 6, 8PM ET), but you won't see this one during the actual show. Yep, it's a shocking online exclusive. In the short, Helms and Bublé play hosts of a live 1974 Christmas special that goes horribly wrong.

Why did we say shocking? Well, the sweater on Helms' character does a little more than festively twinkle. Check out the video below.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Supernatural' Gets Animated ... Sort Of

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 1st 2011 10:00AM
'Supernatural' gets 'Mad'Apologies for the semi-misleading headline, 'Supernatural' fans -- sadly the show is not taking a page out of the 'Fringe' playbook and tackling a psychedelic animated episode; at least, not as far as we know. (Although there's always the anime series.)

But for those of you who take your Winchesters in 3D, 2D and heck, any way you can get them, AOL TV has an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming 'MAD' episode, featuring Sam and Dean facing one of their most frightening foes yet: a teenage girl celebrating her Super(natural) Sweet Sixteen.

The parody airs next week (Mon., Dec. 5 at 8.30PM ET on Cartoon Network), but you can get a first look at the hilarious skit after the jump. Prepare to learn more than you ever wanted to know about Dean's taste in shoes ...

Watch 'The Voice' Contestant Dia Frampton's 'Don't Kick the Chair' Feat. Kid Cudi (VIDEO)

by AOL Music Staff, posted Nov 30th 2011 4:00PM
She isn't just a pretty 'voice,' but also one talented songwriter! Dia Frampton, who rose to fame as the runner-up on the inaugural season of NBC's 'The Voice,' has a catchy new, Kid Cudi-assisted single out called 'Don't Kick the Chair.' The Utah native puts the tune's poignant lyrics in the spotlight for its brand-new video.

"I wrote this song with Busbee and Julie Frost," Dia, who was on country megastar Blake Shelton's 'Voice' team, told AOL Music. "It started with my lyrical idea, 'Don't Kick the Chair,' since my sisters and I throw that phrase around at home when we're complaining about something when, on the other hand, it's a beautiful day outside. In other words, 'don't kick the chair' is another way of saying, 'don't give up,' because you can't have the highs without the lows, and there's no use in getting down about something for too long. You got to start pushing forward at some point."

"Oh yes, a very good kisser," White said of the 'How I Met Your Mother' star's smooching skills in a red-carpet interview with AOL TV. "Not that I go around doing the research, but that's not a bad idea."

'Misfits' Season 3 Exclusive: Cast Talks Coming to America

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 29th 2011 4:00PM
misfits season 3 hulu exclusive Rejoice, 'Misfits' fans! As previously reported, the quirky, foul-mouthed UK teen dramedy is coming back to America exclusively on Hulu for Season 3.

At the end of Season 2, our favorite teen anti-heros were left powerless, but it definitely won't stay that way for long. Kelly (Lauren Socha), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and Simon (Iwan Rheon) have all-new powers, which means that there will be some serious adjusting. And new blood.

After the departure of fan-favorite Nathan (Robert Sheehan), we wondered who could possible step in and fill out that advantageous orange jumpsuit. Enter Rudy, played by actor Joe Gilgun. Think of him as one part Nathan and one part painfully shy Simon circa Season 1, and we have to admit, he fits in with the 'Misfits' quite well.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, the young cast talks about 'Misfits' coming to America, and how they hope the US will embrace the show just as much as the UK has done.

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 7 Recap

The Walking Dead Midseason Finale Recap['The Walking Dead' - 'Pretty Much Dead Already']

Hey, zombies are human, too! Well, I guess not, as Shane so eloquently demonstrates with a couple of well placed rounds through the heart. Honestly, why does the voice of reason on this show have to be such an asshole? Yes, Shane has become the voice of reason. And not just because he was 100 percent right about the walkers in the barn being dangerous – I mean, look at the risk Rick and Hershel took while trying to "guide" those two walkers into the barn. But, without Shane, we'd still be watching a show about a group looking for a lost girl in the woods. It took seven episodes to find her. They did find her. At least that's over.
