With that in mind, we decided to compile this list of our favorite musician cameos, and here's hoping to many more now that the show has been renewed.

11 Great '[TV Show] in 60 Seconds' Videos

by Ryan McKee, posted Jan 29th 2011 2:00PM
Watching Landline TV's 'Dexter' in 60 Seconds' video reminded us how much we enjoy the 'In 60 Seconds' format.

The phenomenon really took off on YouTube with a number of movie plots edited down to one minute. Full television series aren't as simple to cut down with so many characters and story arcs each season. However, there are some excellent ones out there and we unearthed 11 of the best.

The tone of the videos vary greatly -- some are meant to be informative, others humorous. They are created from actual clips, or re-enactments, or animation, or even feline theatre. A few focus on a specific character, or season, and some portray the show's broader themes. You'll enjoy all of them, and leave a little more educated.

Did Usher Steal a Song From Homer Simpson?

by Jean Bentley, posted Dec 28th 2010 1:00PM
Usher and Homer SimpsonIn the most hilarious accusation of plagiarism ever, an intrepid YouTuber has compiled evidence that a portion of the Usher song 'OMG' was actually inspired by a Christmas carol penned by none other than -- wait for it -- Homer Simpson.

The yellow one's festive song aired during the 14th season of 'The Simpsons' and goes like this: "Christmas in December/Wow wow wow/Gimme tons of presents/Now now now."

Even better, though, is that the oh-so-sophisticated Usher lyrics sound like Homer could've written them too: "Honey got a booty like/Pow pow pow/Honey got some boobies like/Wow oh wow."

For the record, will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas actually wrote the track. And since we know what you're thinking, it's okay -- we'll say it first: It's a slow news week.

Listen below and tell us: Did Usher steal the song from Homer?

Justin BieberDo you think your life already has enough Justin Bieber in it? Well, if you're a fan of reality competitions, brace yourselves --more Biebs might be coming your way.

According to Simon Cowell, former 'American Idol' judge and the brains behind the talent competition 'The X Factor,' Bieber has asked to be a judge on the new American version of the series. "He put himself forward to judge some of the episodes," Cowell said on 'Extra.'

The American version of 'X Factor' will launch next September, and rumors have been flying left and right about who will be on the panel. So far, Cowell has not confirmed the judging lineup, but 'Dancing With the Stars' winner and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has been quite a popular rumor.

Additionally, Cowell told 'Extra' that one of the biggest singers in the world has approached him to appear on the series. The secret star will, in fact, appear on the series.

Homer SimpsonAccording to a dubious website with a surprisingly comprehensive list of made-up holidays, today is Lazy Day.

What? You don't celebrate it? That's OK, because what would a Lazy Day celebration really be except a bunch of people munching on potato chips while wearing sweatpants and watching TV? (Not that we're projecting our own ideas of the holiday, or anything.)

Since we didn't want to let the day go by without honoring our brethren in skirting responsibility, we decided to celebrate Lazy Day by rounding up a list of our favorite lazy TV characters.

'The Simpsons' - 'To Surveil With Love' Recap

by Sharon Knolle, posted May 3rd 2010 8:29AM
The Simpsons - To Surveil With Love(S21E20) From the inspired 'Tik Tok' musical opening sequence to the last gag, 'To Surveil With Love' ranks as one of the best 'Simpsons' episodes in years.

I never expected the rest of the episode to live up to that killer opening, but, unbelievably, it just got better as it went along.

The bit that had me laughing the hardest: After surveillance cameras are installed in every inch of Springfield, Bart marking the town's one blind spot by dropping his pants and drawing a line every time he doesn't hear Ned gasping, "Buttocks!" "Tushie! or "Boy cheeks!" A perfectly funny bit that got even funnier when Homer asks Bart, whose pants are still down around his ankles, what he's doing. "Experimenting with my butt," says Bart. "My little Einstein," Homer says proudly as he pats Bart's head.

(S21E18) Homer Simpson and Clancy Wiggum becoming BFFs should have been comedy gold; instead, this episode of 'The Simpsons' was a colossal bore. It seems like everything hilarious you can do with the Springfield police -- high-speed car chases, putting squirrels down your pants for the purpose of gambling -- has already been done. They never even go out for donuts!

'The Simpsons' - 'The Greatest Story Ever D'Ohed' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 29th 2010 3:05AM
'The Simpsons' - 'The Greatest Story ever Doh'd'(S21E16) It's always tricky to try and mix comedy with Jerusalem. Unless you're willing to throw caution to the wind and risk offending various religious groups and individuals, you almost always wind up with something that's bland and lame. For 'The Simpsons,' cutting edge and risque seems to be a thing long in their past, and the latter product is what we got.

Everything from Sacha Baron Cohen's aggressive tour guide to the jokes and the storyline in general didn't work this week. I'm not sure if it's because the writer, Kevin Curran, was trying too hard not to offend Muslims, Jews or Christians, but he wound up wringing every bit of humor out of the episode.

Normally, at least one or two jokes can hit, even in a bad episode of 'The Simpsons,' but this one actually got painful to continue sitting through.

Homer Unites Religions Through Peace and Chicken on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

Peace and Chicken on 'The Simpsons'Now that the religious holidays of Easter and Passover are upon us, we may find ourselves in need of a little spiritual guidance. Luckily, as always, we can look to one man. And that man is -- Homer Simpson.

On the latest episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox), Homer finds himself in the holy city of Jerusalem. There, he has a vision of himself as the Messiah, and takes it upon himself to unite all the warring religious faiths. So naturally, he then gives a confusing, yet rousing speech.
