Top 5 TVR Clips of the Week: Ben Bailey's Bathroom Break, Padma's Potato Skins, New 'AGT' Phenom & More (VIDEO)
This week's five best clips collection features both the stuff of nightmares (hearing your name called at an awards show when you're in the bathroom) and what dreams are made of (Padma somehow making a potato skins recipe sexy).
We saw 'America's Got Talent' find its latest child phenom, Sharon Osbourne continue to horrify daytime television audiences and Jason Segel share his shameful weight loss secrets with America.
Check out the videos after the jump and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.
Hosted by Wayne Brady ('Let's Make a Deal'), the show entertained with musical numbers (from Brady and Marie Osmond), had touching tributes to Oprah Winfrey, Susan Lucci and Lifetime Achievement Recipients Pat Sajack ('Wheel of Fortune') and Alex Trebek ('Jeopardy') and, if you're a soap fan, you saw some surprising wins including a tie for the directors of 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and 'The Young and the Restless.'
Read on to get the scoop from your winners and see how why the Father's Day-win was especially poignant for one trophy recipient.
That's what happened to Ben Bailey when he was temporarily missing in action after he and 'Cash Cab' took home the Emmy for Outstanding Game Show Host.
It was Bailey's second win in a row, but the first that he almost missed entirely. He could have played it off completely if he'd wanted to as he had a great line ready when he finally did make it to the podium.
"Thank you very much," he said taking the Emmy. "Well everybody, I couldn't get a cab. What can I say?"
The comedian, of course, is the host of the Discovery Channel's popular 'Cash Cab' quiz show. In honor of 'Cash Cab''s fifth-season premiere tonight (6PM ET, Discovery), we called Bailey up to chat about how, exactly, you get on the show (he insisted that nothing but luck is involved), 'Cash Cab' strategy and getting pulled over.
We also gave the host, who has a new Comedy Central stand-up special set to air in March or April, a Valentine's Day–themed quiz of his own. Find out how he did, along with his favorite 'Cash Cab' moment and absolutely zero information about how to get on the show, after the jump.
For those of you seeking to vacation in New York City, in the event that you hail a cab while in town you may get a chance to win a couple of thousand dollars and have Ben Bailey at your driver. 'Cash Cab' has been renewed for a sixth season.
Admittedly I'm a bit biased about this news as I was once a contestant on the show before coming to TV Squad. In the event that you do get on the show next season, please leave Ben Bailey a nice tip when the ride is done as I forgot to.
Hopefully the producers will give a little variety to the show, such as when they did 'Cash Cab at Night.' One recommendation would be to use other cities as locations for the show rather than New York City, and I say this as someone who loves New York. Other cities have clubs and restaurants that would love to sponsor the concept.
Do you know the answer to every question before they fly out of the host's mouth faster than a New York cabbie hurling a curse word out of his window during bumper-to-bumper gridlock?
Then prove it. Put your iPhone where your mouth is because Discovery and Capcom have released a new Cash Cab game app for the device.
