by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 6th 2011 1:30AM
'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior'The two-night event, 'The Build-Off' kicked off with Jesse James, Senior and Junior finishing up their bikes on 'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior' (Mon., 9PM ET on Discovery). During the process, the three have had some fun with one another, sending goofy things back and forth.

But after Junior accused Senior of sending him the inappropriate cake Jesse James sent to both of them last week, James decided it was time to focus his hate. "Senior can't be that bad of a dude, 'cause one of my closest ... friends for the last 20 years works for him," James said. "And this guy wouldn't work for him if he was a d***."

Andy Samberg, Shark WeekAndy Samberg has a lot of weight on his shoulders as Shark Week 2011's Chief Shark Officer. But, just how did the 'Saturday Night Live' funnyman get this "jawesome" gig?

"I think I'm Chief Shark Officer for obvious reasons," Samberg said. "I love sharks, I'm a really bad swimmer, Justin Timberlake passed. What else? Mainly the third one."

In the exclusive video interview below, Samberg, while soaking wet and standing in the ocean, details his experiences as Chief Shark Officer.

"The worst thing about being Chief Shark Officer is that I had to go to the Bahamas! It doesn't smell like whiz or homeless people anywhere here," he joked. "I'm just so homesick. It's going to be so sucky when I have to go back."

TV 101: 'Gold Rush: Alaska' Has More Drama Than Dancing With the Housewives

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted Feb 2nd 2011 2:00PM
Gold Rush AlaskaYou think you know drama? You, the guy in his bath robe watching 24 continuous hours of 'Law & Order' and its plethora of offshoots, solving every crime before the first commercial break?

You think you know drama? You, the nice old lady wiling away your twilight years with your soap operas and cats?

You think you know drama? You, the 'Real Housewives' addict praying that someday they will do a 'Real Housewives of Shreveport' so you can show the world what tackiness and entitlement are all about?

Well, you may know each of those specific types of drama, but you don't know real drama until you've seen 'Gold Rush: Alaska,' the reality show that puts them all to shame.

The Key to the City on 'American Chopper' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 28th 2010 4:20AM
The Key to the City on 'American Chopper'The tradition of giving a guest the "key to the city" dates back to medieval times -- when cities were surrounded by walls, and you needed an actual key for entry. On the new 'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior' (Mon., 9PM ET on Discovery), Paul Teutul, Jr., got the key to the city of Asheville, North Carolina. And the reason that he received this honor? It was because he built a totally rad motorcycle, apparently.

These days, getting the key to a city is totally symbolic. And anyway, the one key that Junior really needs ... is the key to his father's heart. (Or is that too profound?)

After all, 'Senior vs. Junior' is about the feud between Junior and his dad, Paul, Sr. -- the father has kicked his son out of the family bike-making business. So even though Junior got cheers from the crowd of 400,000 Carolinians, he still must be imagining the disapproving specter of his dear old dad looming behind him.

Orange County Choppers Team Uses Jet Engine to Test Windows (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Aug 20th 2010 3:54PM
American ChopperAnd we're not talking Windows 7, though I can picture the Senior Teutel doing one of those "Windows 7 was my idea" commercials. No, we're talking about an actual window, which the Orange County Chopper guys tested last night on 'American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior' (Thursdays at 9PM ET on TLC).

The jet engine blasts the window but the window takes a lot of beating before eventually melting and collapsing. Then the rider takes the little ATV for a joyride. The flame coming out of the back looks really cool, like the one on the Batmobile.

The Cancelled 'American Chopper'... is Ready to Film Another Season?!?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 7th 2010 8:00PM
The Teutels from Once again, people, I'm forced to ask the question: what the hell is going on here?!? Did up become down? Has black become white? Did Ken Jennings lose his 'Jeopardy!' winning streak record to Karl Pilkington?

TLC canceled the long-running bike building reality show 'American Chopper' back in February, but new reports have surfaced they are bringing the show back, or at least part of its principal cast, for another run.

Has anyone at TLC, which once stood for "The Learning Channel," learned about the concept of cognitive dissonance? Maybe they could learn about it by watching some of their pre-'Jon and Kate' programming, back when you could actually learn something from watching TLC other than how to exploit extremely fertile women for money and/or fame.

TLC Puts the Brakes on 'American Chopper'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 8th 2010 6:29PM
The family reality show that would never say die just died.

TLC has officially canceled the long-running 'American Chopper', which has been on the air since 2003 when it first found footing on the Discovery Channel. The show's final episode will air on Thursday.

Say what you will about the series running past its prime, but both the show and its subjects have been through a hell of a lot of mayhem. The shop played host to a ton of thick, rich drama, capping with the final season in which Paul Jr. leaves the shop on very heated terms and eventually led to Paul Sr. suing his son for a $1 million in back company stock.

If you're curious to know how things will wrap up, check out a preview of the final episode at Turbo.Discovery.com.

'American Chopper' Canceled

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Feb 8th 2010 12:15PM
Apparently, 'American Chopper' has been, well, chopped.

TMZ is reporting that TLC's popular motorcycle reality series has been canceled, and will air its final episode this Thursday, Feb. 11.

"The Teutuls will always be a part of the Discovery family and we congratulate them on a tremendously successful series run," a rep for the network said.

The show debuted on the Discovery Channel back in 2003, and lasted an impressive six seasons following the exploits of the Orange County Choppers' bike shop; at the end of 2007, it moved to Discovery's sister network, TLC. It also spawned two 'American Chopper' video games and a short-lived parody on Comedy Central.
