Top 5 Clips of the Week: O'Reilly Leaves Letterman Hanging, Betty White for Prez & More (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 16th 2011 10:45AM

This week, several of our favorite TV clips were infused with political undertones. Betty White prepared to run for the presidency on the double entendre ticket, while Bill O'Reilly wouldn't high five Letterman after admitting he was wrong about the Iraq War. Hank Williams Jr. went on 'The View' to try to explain himself after getting sacked from 'Monday Night Football,' but all that came out was jibberish.

LL Cool J dropped some knowledge in a BET Awards acceptance speech, in what proved to be the high-point of the week for Blackberry. And thankfully, Simon Cowell dumbed it all down by marveling at Wendy Williams' boobs.

Check out the clips after the jump and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll.

'I Am Hip Hop' Icon Award Winner LL Cool J, '2011 BET Hip How Awards'LL Cool J took home the 'I Am Hip-Hop Icon Award' at the 2011 'BET Hip Hop Awards' (Tue., 8PM ET on BET), and he brought some rhymes with him to read in lieu of a traditional acceptance speech.

He proved himself an impressive wordsmith still, with a social conscience, touching several members of the audience with his politically charged words.

"Millionaires crying about raising taxes on the elite," he read. "They won't feed us as they'd rather defeat us like an aborted fetus, but the greatest feat is to get back up on your feet."

LL Cool J Talks Michael Jackson on 'Lopez Tonight'Hip-hop artist LL Cool J has performed and recorded with a lot of talented people, but working with Michael Jackson ranks as "the most amazing" experience, he shared on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS).

The two artists did "quite a few songs" together, but they were never released. One evening in the studio, sitting at a baby grand piano, LL asked MJ, "In the 'Smooth Criminal' -- how'd you lean forward like that?"

MJ, sitting cross-legged atop the piano, replied: "We had a Swami come in ... He did a ritual and he leaned forward, and we all leaned forward together." LL told George Lopez, "I was like, 'Really?' He was like, 'No, silly!'"

The 'NCIS: Los Angeles' star then divulged a story he'd never told before -- about farting in front of the King of Pop.

FOX News Removes LL Cool J Interview From Palin Special

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 31st 2010 1:31PM
Fox News ChannelEarlier today Brad told you about the guests that Sarah Palin is going to have on her first special for FOX News, 'Real American Stories.' One of them was supposed to be LL Cool J, but now FOX has removed him from the special. Why? It's a little complicated.

It seems that this isn't a new interview with the actor/singer. It's an interview he did in 2008 with the FOX News web site Real American Stories and the network was just going to rerun that interview. Palin would have only introduced the interview. But when LL Cool J (real name: James Smith) found out that they were running the old interview, he tweeted his displeasure (as most people now do).

Sam and G. Battle Bad Guys on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (VIDEO)

NCIS: Los Angeles, LL Cool J, Chris O'DonnellThere was some serious fight choreography on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS), when Sam and G. found themselves smack in the middle of a hairy situation.

While we always root for the good guys, it would probably be more true to life if one of them actually got knocked out now and then. They always seem to come out with nary a scratch.

Not that we're complaining. We don't want anything to happen to Chris O'Donnell or LL Cool J's pretty faces.

LL Cool J Keeps His Cool on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

Ellen DeGeneres, LL Cool JLL Cool J lived up to his name on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) when he kept his cool after a little twist of words on Ellen's part. Look, the guy has some crazy-ass muscles, and you just know it takes a ton of work to keep 'em that way.

So when Ellen asked how he managed to stay fit while logging such long hours on the set of 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' he said, "It's tough. You have to do it after hours, you have to do it on the weekends, you gotta figure it out. How bad do you want it?"

At this point, the audience cheered and Ellen said, "That's not what he meant! Don't answer that!" Ok, so maybe he got a little embarrassed, but still managed to keep it on the down-low ... or whatever it is cool guys say.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Seven shows a-thrivin'

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 17th 2009 11:03AM
john lithgowOn the seventh day of Festivus, TV gave to me... Seven shows a-thrivin'.

The 2009-2010 season is a great one to be on TV-- especially for returning dramas and new comedies. If we had 20 days of Christmas, I probably could have filled the list with shows that were either thriving right out of the gate or making a resurgence after being on the air for several years. As it is, we just have seven slots, so here are some noteworthy series that are thriving this year.

I've always liked Dexter, but it's never been appointment TV for me. I've generally been content to wait until the season came out on DVD and knock all of the episodes out in a weekend. However, after a creative dip in season 3, I've found myself positively glued to my television every Sunday night that season 4 has aired. John Lithgow absolutely made the season as the creepy Arthur Mitchell. Plus the finale? I know some of you saw the big twist coming at the end, but I certainly did not. Who doesn't like to end a season with their jaw on the floor?

LL Cool J hosts CBS' Grammy Nomination Concert LL Cool J hosted last night's 'Grammy Nominations Concert' on CBS. The program might also be known by its alternate title "Squeezing an hour of programming and using the Grammy's as an excuse."

The show heavily featured the Black Eyed Peas and LL felt inclined to pay homage to the group in the only way he can -- through his style of rap.

Five reasons I'm not hooked on NCIS: LA

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 30th 2009 10:03AM
If I tell you right now, before November sweeps, that CBS will renew NCIS: Los Angeles for a second season, you won't be surprised. The pre-season projections for this show were that it was a guaranteed success. It wasn't only that it was a spinoff from CBS's top-rated drama series, NCIS. No, it was programming. CBS slotted NCIS: LA in the hour right after NCIS. It had a very strong spot, a monster lead in.
