Top 5 Clips of the Week: Nancy Grace Nip Slip, Urkel in the 'House' & More (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 2nd 2011 1:30PM


This week in TV clips was at times horrifying, but ended on a positive note. Last week's 'X Factor Flashing' gave way to the Nancy Grace nip slip. And then Andy Rooney retired, which inspired outpouring of mash-ups saluting his career in grumpy old man musings. Both Ed Helms and Seth Rogen got Jersey Turnpiked by the 'Jersey Shore.' But then Jaleel White came back into our TV lives and set everything back right in the world.

Check out some of our favorite clips from the week that was in TV and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.

Jaleel WhiteDr. House is going to have one very familiar-looking prison mate: None other than 'Family Matters' star Jaleel White. Yes, Steve Urkel.

We can only hope White utters "Did I do that?" at least once.

According to TVLine, White will guest star in the Mon., Oct. 3 'House' season premiere (9PM ET on Fox). Picking up one year later, House is in prison after driving his car into Cuddy's house.

Besides 'House,' the 'Family Matters' veteran has stayed busy popping up on a variety of shows including 'Are We There Yet?' and 'Psych.'

Steve UrkelWas Urlesque hacked?!

That might be what readers thought when they opened up Urlesque.com's homepage this morning to find the entire site had been decked out Urkel-style.

Renaming itself "Urkel-esque," the Internet trends site is celebrating April Fool's Day by tricking out its content with articles by 90's sitcom 'Family Matters' star Steve Urkel and his cooler alter-ego "Stephan Urquelle" to fool the Interwebs.

The site's logo is even changed to include Urkel's signature big glasses.

Jaleel White talks about what matters to him with new series Road to the Altar

Jaleel White and Leyna Juliet Weber in Most prime time network shows have a chain of command that would make the Pentagon look like a PTA board.

There's the writers who send their scripts to the show runners who then have to filter their changes through the director who send them to the producer where it's thumbed through and sent to a group of picky censors and so on and so on. Ninety offices later, the script is finally ready for shooting, even though the story went from a quirky drama about a lawyer who represents illegal immigrants to a sci-fi epic about mutant leeches who suck out astronauts' brains through their nostrils.

But actor Jaleel White has found a place in Hollywood where the usual studio aristocracy has been thrown away in the name of freedom and simplicity: the Internet.

"I'm so excited about it because I don't need to go to an executive now," White said in a recent phone interview. "Our focus group is America."

Did they do thaaaaat? Obsessed fans try to find Urkel's house (UPDATED)

Even though I've written about TV for many years, I've never gone on a hunt to find the location for a particular TV show. Not that I wouldn't, I just haven't yet. These Family Matters fans in the clip below went to Chicago to try to find Steve Urkel's house. Though it's not exactly his house, it's the Winslow house (Urkel was the neighbor).

Is the Winslow place "one of the most recognizable sitcom facades" as the narrator says?

Update (6/11):
After the jump, a clarification on this post.

Buffy's Willow tops list of pop culture's greatest nerds

by Mike Moody, posted Jun 3rd 2009 5:01PM
willow buffy alyson hanniganOK, so she turned evil and veiny and almost destroyed the world after someone murdered her hot lesbian lover. But at heart, Willow Rosenberg was always a computer-hacking, research-loving nerd.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer character landed at number one on Topless Robot's list of "Pop Culture's 10 Greatest Nerds." I was surprised by the pick at first, but I can't think of a better choice to top the list. Willow was a great character, and will probably always be actor Alyson Hannigan's best role (sorry, HIMYM fans, but it's true).

Urkel (and Myrtle Urkel, Urkel-Bot, andStefan Urquelle) come to Nick at Nite

Family matters arrives on the Nick as Nite schedule starting tonightI know many of you have been waiting for this moment, so I'll get right to it. Tonight begins the official entry of Family Matters onto the Nick at Nite schedule. Starting at 9 p.m., there will be a marathon of the series that began as a spinoff of the ABC sitcom Perfect Strangers.

For those unfamiliar with the show, Family Matters was a traditional sitcom about the Winslows -- Carl, Harriet, Eddie, Laura, the other daughter that mysteriously disappeared mid-way through the series, Grandma Estelle, Aunt Rachel, and, eventually, cousin Richie. Of course, all of these characters became second bananas to one Steve Urkel, who eventually became the star of the show. Face it, you didn't tune in to see what wisdom Carl would pass on to his son Eddie. You tuned in to see Urkel breaking something at the Winslow home, fawning over Laura, inventing transformation chambers and Urkel-bots, and uttering the now-famous phrase, "Did I do that?"

To get you warmed up for Urkel specifically and Family Matters as a whole, Nick at Nite has provided an Urkel-O-Meter on their website to determine how much of the suspenders-wearing nerd we have in all of us. By answering a few questions the Urkel-O-Meter tells you if you are suave like Stefan Urquelle, a belle like Myrtle Urkel, or a true, lovable nerd like Urkel himself. After taking the quiz it turns out that I am a true Steve Urkel. Well, no surprise to some of you readers out there, is it?

Say goodbye to Oliver, but did you love or hate him?

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Feb 21st 2007 7:27PM

Oliver Trask is a despised TV character. The day is closer upon us. The end of The O.C. will come to our screens tomorrow night.. The originator and main reason why the development floodgates of Hollywood were opened to introduce us to programming such as Laguna Beach and other bad teen shows based on excess and other items of unimportance.

Although there are many broken hearted O.C. fans amongst us, we aren't that upset to see a character like Oliver Trask off into oblivion. He was able to exude as much hate that a writer could place on a single character, and I am personally glad to see him go.
