NBC announced that the hour-long special on November 30 will be hosted by the 'Today Show's Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie and will -- natch -- also feature seasonal high-kickers, The Radio City Rockettes. Prior to the primetime telecast, WNBC and other NBC affiliates (check your local listings) will also air an additional live hour of the special.

Cee Lo Green Makes 'Parenthood' Cameo (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 19th 2011 3:00PM
It was an NBC crossover last night on 'Parenthood,' (Tues., 10PM ET on NBC) as 'The Voice' judge Cee-Lo Green stopped by Adam and Crosby's makeshift music studio to record a song for a 60s tribute album. The guys had had recruited Cee Lo with the history of the place, touting the fact that Janis herself, along with Jerry Garcia, had recorded there, and scrambled to get the downstairs studio finished in time for the session.

But once they got started, Cee Lo didn't like how it was sounding and left, leaving Crosby and Adam to think he was irritated with Adam's goofy dance moves or the studio's sound quality. But just when they were down in the dumps, Cee Lo came back to give it another shot, pledging to try to sound less like Janis and do the song in his own style. It worked, and Adam and Crosby finished the first job in the new chapter of their "lemonade stand."

Cee Lo Green Guests as a Hot Tub of Horrors on 'American Dad' (VIDEO)

'American Dad' - 'Hot Water'Cee Lo Green was a revelation on the Season 7 premiere of 'American Dad' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX), and that's not easy to do as a guest voice actor on an animated series. Still, we couldn't help but notice the way his unique style and sense of humor permeated every aspect of this musical experience.

An obvious nod to 'Little Shop of Horrors,' the plant was replaced by a sentient hot tub voiced by Green. He lured Stan in and slowly began to take over his life. Eventually, Stan left his family behind along with his job, devoting himself entirely to the hot tub.

Emmys Reveal Lots of New, But Familiar, Faces at 'The Office' (VIDEO)

Jason Momoa, 'The 2011 Emmy Awards'By now, everyone knows that Steve Carell has left the building, and James Spader has joined the cast of 'The Office,' but as we saw on 'The 2011 Emmy Awards' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX), Spader isn't the only new person getting face time at Dunder-Mifflin.

In a very fun video, we got to see a who's who of television in that familiar office chair where the castmembers from the show do their confessionals.

They were all talking about what they hated about their jobs, like Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) hating rapists, sex trafficking and crimes against children -- this is a much darker take for 'The Office.'

Cee Lo Green Says He Was Raised To Be Sexy on 'Talking To Strangers' (VIDEO)

Cee Lo Green on 'Talking to Strangers'It's an age old argument that has bedeviled sociologists for years -- is sexiness learned through nature or nurture? Cee Lo Green, the self-described "Ladykiller," put in his two cents Wednesday on 'Talking to Strangers' (Wednesday, 11PM on FUSE). Green told Kelly Rowland about how he was raised to be sexy.

"My mama, she was a trip, she wanted me to be sexy," he said, drawing out the word for emphasis. "My mama got me some bikini drawers." Green said his mother bought him several pairs of bikini underwear at a women's "pleasure party." "She brought me back a g-string with the little elephant tusk in it, the see-through elephant tusk with the little shaky eyes."

Cee Lo Green Previews His 'Monumentous' Vegas Show, Performs on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Matt Lauer talks to Cee Lo Green about Las Vegas on 'Today'Cee Lo Green is gearing up for a run in Las Vegas, which earned him the nickname 'Lo-berace' from Matt Lauer Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). Green, a hit-making singer and judge on the singing contest show 'The Voice,' is hoping the run will be a big deal for fans who might not be too familiar with the city's big shows.

"I wanted to do something new and fresh for this generation," Green told Lauer. "I don't think anybody from our generation has got the opportunity to do something monumentous like that. And so I would like to do something exceptional, you know. The way that I feel about myself and the way that my career is going, it makes sense."

Cee Lo Green Talks to Train About Song Inspiration and 'Trained Groupies' (VIDEO)

Train, 'Cee Lo Green: Talking to Strangers'Cee Lo Green ran the gamut in his interview with the band Train on 'Cee Lo Green: Talking to Strangers' (Wed., 11PM ET on Fuse). He talked with Patrick Monahan about the influences behind the song 'Drops of Jupiter,' which was inspired by the death of his mother.

Monahan got a little existential on Green, though, saying it was much more than him dwelling on that experience. After the lyric "I'm back in the atmosphere" came to him in his sleep, Monahan felt it was his mother wanting him to tell this story.

"I feel like I'm just a vehicle for the universe," he explained. "So I really respected what was happening that night."

Javier Colon, winner of 'The Voice,' on 'Today'Wednesday night, Javier Colon beat out favorite Dia Frampton to win the first season of 'The Voice.' Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Colon said he never thought it would happen. His doubts were understandable: the show had chronicled Colon's many missed chances in the music industry, and he talked with Matt Lauer about almost giving up music.

"It was getting to the point where I wasn't able to make a living, enough to raise my two beautiful girls and to support my wife," he said. "And I wasn't going to let that happen. So If I had to do something else, I was going to do something else."

The Voice NBC has announced that all four coaches will return for Season 2 of 'The Voice.'

Yep, you can expect more tight shirts on Adam Levine, more denim on Blake Shelton, more sunglasses for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera will be back -- no word on whether her leather diaper-esque shorts will return as well.

"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of 'The Voice' this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming at NBC and Universal Media Studios, said in a statement.

'The Voice' Finale: Who is the Singing Competition's First Winner? (VIDEO)

Javier Colon & Dia Frampton, 'The Voice''American Idol' revolutionized the singing competition in America ten years ago, and its first winner, Kelly Clarkson, went on to worldwide success and fame.

This summer, 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) has arguably reinvented the concept by putting the focus on ... the voice. Will its winner go on to comparable success?

With top caliber coaches in Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera, the show was more about nurturing tomorrow's superstars than sitting distant and aloof in judgment of them. And after all was said and done it came down to 2 percent.

Cee Lo Green Joins Vicci Martinez on the 'Battlefield' on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Cee Lo Green, 'The Voice'There was a lot of singing in the performance finale of 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC), and not just from our four remaining finalists. They not only sang their solo songs, but each of them took to the stage with their coach for a duet.

Javier Colon and Adam Levine performed Michael Jackson's 'Man in the Mirror,' and while it was vocally solid they didn't really bring anything new to it.

We were surprised to be a little let down by Dia Frampton and Blake Shelton's take on Tom Petty's 'I Won't Back Down,' while we enjoyed Beverly McClellan joining Christina Aguilera for a unique spin on Aguilera's own 'Beautiful.'

Three out of the four remaining singers appeared Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) to talk about what they've learned from their celebrity coaches and how they feel about their competition.

Dia Frampton said she's learned a lot from watching Blake Shelton perform for an audience. "I think the best time I ever had with him is when he took us to a show in Ohio and I was kind of watching him perform," she said. Vicci Martinez has had a good time just being around Cee Lo Green. "He's a riot," she said. "You never know what you're going to get from him."

Bruno Mars Talks Writing for Other People, Performs 'Runaway Baby' on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Bruno Mars on 'Today'Bruno Mars made a big impact behind the scenes before his emergence as a performer, writing hits for other artists, including 'Right Round' by Flo Rida, 'Wavin' Flag' by K'naan, and perhaps the best known of his co-creations, 'F@#$ You!' by Cee Lo Green. Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Matt Lauer asked Mars about his own career and writing for others.

After remarking on the attractive crowd Mars attracts, Lauer asked, "Now, though, that you're the guy with the Grammy and the front-man, are you going to keep writing for other people?" Mars, decked out in shades and a dark suit that matched the rest of the band, deadpanned, "Absolutely not. I'm done." He laughed and quickly retracted that, saying "of course" he would.

He and the band then played a raucous version of 'Runaway Baby' from Mars' album 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans.' Later Mars got off on the right foot with an impressive impression of James Brown's dancing, while his band did an amazing impression of James Brown's band.

Cee Lo Green Takes Us to 'Bright Lights, Bigger City' on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Cee Lo Green, 'The Voice'If there is a male counterpart to Lady Gaga's stage presence in this era of pop music, it has to be Cee Lo Green. He brought his singular style to the first ever results show for 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) on his song 'Bright Lights, Bigger City.'

Once again, he donned a fun wig to bring a bit of Broadway style to the production, and proved that he's not just someone telling the contestants what to do, but a genuine talent in his own right. 'The Voice' seems to be determined to remind us each week that these Coaches are brilliant voices as well as mentors, and we think it's a great idea.

It lends credence to their coaching of the contestants, and it allows us the guarantee of professional-level entertainment even if the contestants don't deliver. Luckily, that has hardly been a problem in this inaugural season as the show has more than lived up to its name thus far.
