After learning the fictional city is filled with low self-esteem, Gaga tries to cheer up Lisa with a song and a flash mob. In addition to some Lisa interaction, Gaga will have a variety of wardrobe changes and share a smooch with none other than Marge Simpson.
"I would say this is one of the coolest things I've ever done," Gaga told EW about her guest spot. "My dad's probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out."
The episode is set to air in the spring of 2012.

From there, discussion turns towards Hewitt's breasts, which Wendy Williams describes as "legendary" and, less flatteringly, "pendulous." "They had a career of their own, which far surpassed mine," Hewitt said.
Watch the video after the jump.
It's quite a feat for Bateman to have come this far, as the list of former child stars is littered with tales of drug abuse, DUIs, anorexia, obscurity and death. And then there are those who pop up in the news for doing random things, such as Soleil Moon Frye resurrecting Punky Brewster to celebrate her massive Twitter following.
But why dwell on the negative and the bizarre? Here's a list of 10 formerly famous tykes who bucked the odds and emerged from childhood TV stardom -- often after long periods in which they took time off or struggled to find work -- and became famous adults in their own right. We couldn't be more proud.
You'd have thought that after 32 episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (premieres on FX, next Thursday, 9/18 at 10PM) that Mac, Dennis, Dee, Charlie, and Frank would have tackled just about anything you can think of that's offensive. They've hit on underage drinking, Nazis, sex offenders, dumpster babies, religion, retardation, homosexuality, and homeless people. Well I'm here to tell you that it's far from over. There's still plenty of off-color material for these five fools to rape (considering the context... I think that is the right word) and it isn't stopping with this season, which will run for 13 episodes. FX president John Landgraf has confirmed that 39 more episodes will follow. But I'm getting ahead of myself. My thoughts on the season four premiere are after jump.
We know that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was picked up for a third season, but how did they get Danny DeVito to stick around? The video below explains everything, and if the warnings at the beginning of the video aren't enough, let me tell you upfront that the video is NOT SAFE FOR WORK and contains mature themes.
Tell you what: skip down to the bottom of this post and watch the video first, because I'm going to talk about it and I don't want to ruin any of it for you.

If you've been waiting for them to release The Wonder Years on DVD (besides best of sets), you're going to have to wait a lot longer. The DVDs are at least a couple of years away.
And to rub a little salt in the wounds, when the show is released it won't contain any of the soundtrack that they used on the show! Yikes.
Not having the period music on The Wonder Years would be like cutting out the space scenes on Star Trek. It was as much a part of the show as the characters were, as the voice over narration by Daniel Stern. But getting the rights to music to use on TV shows is incredibly expensive, and if you have a show like The Wonder Years that used a ton of songs from the 60s and 70s, it's going to be so expensive they have to either release the DVDs without the music or not release the DVDs at all. It's the same thing holding up the WKRP DVDs.
What do you think? Would you rather see The Wonder Years released, even if it doesn't have the music, or would you rather not see the show on DVD if they're going to cut the music out? I lean toward the latter.

If you were a fan of The Wonder Years back in the late 1980's and early 1990's, you probably had a bit of a crush on Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper, the on-again, off-again girlfriend of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage). And, after the show ended in 1993, you probably thought that she would go on to bigger and better things. Instead, she dashed your hopes by dropping out of the entertainment business for a bit while she completed her degree in mathematics from UCLA. She came back recently in shows such as NCIS, How I Met Your Mother, and, in a recurring role, The West Wing. But, that still wasn't enough. You wanted more Danica.
The guest lineup looks good for the New Orleans-based eighth season on Bravo (eighth? Oh, yeah, they have more than one a year), so it should be fun:
Game 1: Jorge Garcia, Michael Ian Black, Andrea Martin, Greg Behrendt, and Kim Coles.
Game 2: Jason Alexander, Kevin Sorbo, Bryan Cranston, Jamie Bamber, and Susie Essman.
Game 3: Fred Savage, Jennifer Tilly, Doug E. Doug, Brett Butler, and online tournament winner Ida Siconolfi
Game 4: Jenna Fischer, Mario Cantone, Rocco Dispirito, Jordan Peele, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Game 5: Andy Dick, Macy Gray, Christopher Meloni, Joy Behar, and Robin Tunney.
Here's a list of notable actors (the full list is here):
- May 31: Jorge Garcia
(Lost), Michael Ian Black (Stella), Andrea Martin (SCTV);
- June 7: Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle), Jason Alexander, Susie Essman, Kevin Sorbo;
- June 14: Fred Savage, Jennifer Tilly, Brett Butler, Doug E. Doug;
- June 21: Jenna Fischer (The Office), Rocco Dispirito, Mario Cantone;
- June 28: Christopher Meloni; Joy Behar, Andy Dick, Macy Gray
Fred Savage, formerly of the short-lived show Crumbs and the classic The Wonder Years, is going to be a father. His wife, Jennifer Stone Savage, is pregnant and due in August.
Savage is 29 years old. This is the first child for the couple.
Here are the shows (on all networks) that media buyers think are in danger of cancellation:
It's actually a bit of a surprise that Crumbs is shelved. It's the highest-rated comedy on ABC these days, even ahead of The George Lopez Show. There are eight episodes of Crumbs that are left to air so maybe we'll see it back on the schedule this summer. Or on iTunes.

Bob talked last month about Fred Savage's new show, Crumbs, which debuts tomorrow night at 9:30EST on ABC. Bob didn't have a lot of info on the show at that time, but thanks to a great interview with Savage over on CNN, we now have more Fredtabulous scoop for you. Crumbs is a show about a dysfunctional family (I know, shocking to have a dysfunctional family in a sitcom, but bear with me). Jane Curtin plays the mom, who just got released from the mental hospital. Dad (William Devane) is expecting a baby with his girlfriend. One son is dead, one (Eddie McClintock) stuck around to run the family restaurant, and the third (Savage) is a gay prodigal son returning home from a failed Hollywood career.
