Jimmy Fallon & Stephen Colbert, '2011 Do Something! Awards'It was a star-studded affair at the 2011 Do Something! Awards' (Thu., 9PM ET on VH1). The show spotlights and awards people for making a difference in their communities and in the world.

And of course it also spotlights celebrities who take the time to reach out as well. How else are you going to lure in as many viewers as you can? With the likes of Bieber, Gaga, Colbert, Fallon, Ferrell and Wilde, of course.

It was a star-studded event, and all the cool kids were there to accept awards. The show also accepted plenty of rocking musical performances by Foster the People, Demi Lovato, One Republic and B.o.B, and Jane Lynch took to the stage to perform 'Hold On' with Wilson Phillips.

by Joel Keller, posted May 18th 2011 12:00PM
On the seventh season finale of 'The Office' (Thurs., May 19, 9PM ET on NBC), it feels like everyone on the planet is coming to Dunder Mifflin Scranton to interview for Michael Scott's old job. Jim Carrey, Ray Romano, Warren Buffett, Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader and Catherine Tate will all be appearing in the episode as possible replacements.

But, as NBC Entertainment president Bob Greenblatt said during the network's upfront presentation, they won't reveal who the new boss is until next season. Still, with the departure of Steve Carell and the guessing game about who might be the new boss, it's been an interesting season for 'The Office,' one that's seen the writers meet the challenge some weeks and miss it others.

Paul Liberstein, who's best known for playing hapless HR rep Toby, is also the showrunner of 'The Office.' He talked to AOL TV about the challenges of Season 7, Carell's farewell episode and where the show goes from here.

Will Ferrell Bids a Fond Farewell to Meredith Vieira on 'Today'On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Will Ferrell bid a fond farewell to Meredith Vieira, who's set to leave the morning show next month. But before he did so, the two reminisced about a 'Today' segment in 2007 where he dropped her while ice skating.

"I just want to say, you're welcome," said Ferrell.

"You know, Will, my lawyer has been trying to get in touch with you ever since then and you keep changing your phone number. What is that about?" asked Vieira.

Will Ferrell Continues Gloria Allred's Display of Inappropriate Acts With a Bat (VIDEO)

Will Ferrell, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Jon Stewart has been having fun with Gloria Allred's recent press conference regarding the anti-gay accusations against Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). His main point of contention surrounds a masturbatory simulation with a baseball bat that McDowell allegedly did in front of a family.

The problem, as Stewart sees it, is that Allred had the same act performed at her press conference in front of the same two young girls who allegedly witnessed McDowell simulating the sex act on a baseball bat, which led to the lawsuit she's trying.

The Lakers Kiss Cam Caught a Mouthful With Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly (VIDEO)

Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly, 'Chelsea Lately'They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but Will Ferrell still managed to improve the moment captured at a Lakers game with the story behind it. Chelsea Handler had the image of Ferrell kissing John C. Reilly on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

Turns out it was a simple impromptu plan by Reilly to give the infamous "Kiss Cam" something memorable for everyone in the arena.

According to Ferrell, Reilly leaned over and said, "If the camera gets on us, why don't we take a bite of our sandwiches and then kiss." For some reason, Ferrell was completely on board, and then the camera did hit them.

'The Office' Season 7, Episode 22 Recap

'The Office' - 'The Innter Circle'
['The Office' - 'The Inner Circle']

Tonight, we finally got our first glimpse of what 'The Office' is going to be like without Steve Carell. And, I've got to be honest with you; the episode did have its funny moments, mainly because characters that we haven't seen or heard much of lately came out of the woodwork and acted funny for the first time in a long time.

But overall, you can just feel that the show has changed in a very fundamental way, and not just because Will Ferrell's character of Deangelo Vickers is so Will Ferrell-ish. For now, at least, the show is no longer about discomfort, and it's no longer about drudgery. It's about all the quirky characters in an office, which isn't much different than any workplace sitcom that has been on TV in the last forty years. If this show didn't have seven years of history to back it up, this episode would have made you feel like you were watching 'Suddenly Susan' without a laugh track.

Ok, maybe I'm being too harsh. But that's how I felt as I was watching this episode.

Will Ferrell Practices His Royal Bow, Does Harry Caray at the Royal Wedding (VIDEO)

Will Ferrell, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Even though he's not going to be in attendance at the Royal Wedding, Will Ferrell still dressed up in his fineries for his appearance on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). Coincidentally, Matt Lauer was dressed almost identically for his 'Late Night' appearance tonight.

Ferrell proceeded to offer his practiced greeting to the royal couple to Letterman's audience. All was going well, though his curtsy was a little wobbly, until Ferrell decided to approach the camera and lay a big, wet kiss on it.

TV 101: Can 'The Office' Perform a Televisual Magic Trick?

'The Office' - 'Training Day'
'The Office' is treading on treacherous ground, whether they realize it or not, as they plan to move forward with the series even after Steve Carell's departure. The litany of shows that have attempted such a coup in the past is a diverse one, with wildly varying results, but that's not to say that it can't be done. It can.

The better question is: Should it be done? For the sake of the show itself, its legacy, and our ability to watch it without saying "do these people think that I'll just watch anything simply because it's on television?" They're right, of course, but I'm not proud of it.

The case of 'The Office' may be moot, for the basic reason that it probably should have ended about three or four seasons ago, making anything it has done since into the cold lumpy gravy smothering what were once some steaming creamy mashed potatoes with chives.

'The Office' Season 7, Episode 20 Recap

'The Office' - 'Michael's Last Dundies['The Office' - 'Michael's Last Dundies']

The nostalgia factor was high in Steve Carell's next-to-last episode, because seeing a reprise of The Dundies reminded me of what the show was like the first time we saw them, way back in the Season 2 opener almost six years ago.

It was after a first season that struggled to make headway with viewers and was constantly being compared to the UK version that spawned it. What 'The Dundies' showed was that, yes, the American version of 'The Office' could stand on its own, and that there was potential in what 'The Office' could offer over Ricky Gervais' original, namely a supporting cast that will become the backbone of the show.

That's what we saw tonight, with a twist that brought things full circle.

'The Office': 'Michael's Last Dundies' Preview (VIDEO)

The Office, Michael's Last DundiesIt's Michael Scott's last Dundies ceremony on 'The Office,' but he's not leaving without one heck of a show.

If these promo clips from the appropriately titled 'Michael's Last Dundies' (Thursday, 9PM on NBC) are any indication, the episode will be one to remember.

Watch for Meredith's big win and surprising kiss, a war of words between Ryan and Pam (over crack and breadsticks, naturally) and a very, very nervous DeAngelo (Will Ferrell).

Will DeAngelo be able to fill Michael's shoes?

Will Ferrell Makes His 'Office' Debut: Season 7, Episode 20 Recap

['The Office' - 'Training Day']

We all know that Will Ferrell isn't staying long at 'The Office.' So to go through an analysis of his character, DeAngelo (or is it D'Angelo? Deangelo?) Vickers may seem beside the point, since he's ultimately not going to be the boss at Dunder Mifflin Sabre in Scranton.

But I'm going to do it anyway, for reasons that'll become evident pretty quickly.

I'm not sure what to think of DeAngelo. Is he just there to show how much the people in the office are circling the fresh management blood, just waiting to plant their lips on his patootie? Is he supposed to be a clone of Michael in temperament and childishness, but is more ruthless? Or do we just not know yet?

We'll find out soon enough, but tonight's episode didn't give me enough about DeAngelo to figure out where he's coming from and why he's here. And, believe me, Ferrel's performance isn't really helping that.

When Ferrell makes his 'Office' debut on Thursday, April 14, you can expect, well, hilarity.

In the promo clips below, Ferrell's character, DeAngelo Vickers, introduces himself to our favorite Scrantonites. Look for a "meet cute" interaction with Kelly, Kevin's toupee and a bitter Dwight.

'The Office': Ray Romano, James Spader and Catherine Tate All Linked With Manager's Job

James SpaderSince Steve Carell announced his departure from 'The Office' the race has been on to find a replacement for his character, Michael Scott, as the manager of the Scranton branch of Dunder-Mifflin.

Speculation's rife about who will step up to the plate, and just about every guest star in the current season has been linked with the top job. Most recently, we reported that 'Office' creator Ricky Gervais could be taking over from Carell, but now even more names have been added to the ever-expanding list of nominees.

The upcoming Season 7 finale was already set to be a star-studded affair, with Gervais, Will Arnett and Will Ferrell all having booked guest slots. However, according to TVLine.com, yet another comedic trio has signed on for the episode -- Ray Romano, James Spader and Catherine Tate -- and now they're all being linked with the top job.

Is there a grain of truth in the rumors, or is it all just smoke and mirrors?

Will Ferrell Hints He Could Be the New 'Office' Manager

by PopEater Staff, posted Mar 29th 2011 7:35AM
Will FerrellThe rumor mill's been working overtime as the hunt is on for Steve Carell's replacement in 'The Office.' Last week we heard reports that Ricky Gervais would be taking over, and now Will Ferrell's thrown his hat into the ring.

According to UsMagazine.com, the funnyman hinted he might stay at the Scranton branch longer than his scheduled four-episode arc, which begins with the April 14 episode. He admitted it's "looking good" for him to join the series after Carell's exit.

Ferrell, who will reportedly step in as temporary branch manager after Carell's Michael Scott leaves the show, claims he has what it takes to fill his friend's shoes. However, he revealed he does have some changes in mind should he join the series regularly.

"I'd throw it out the window," he joked about the whole outline of the show. "I don't know what they were thinking when they originally cast [Carell]. No, I shouldn't say that!"
