Shaquille O'Neal, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Shaquille O'Neal's girlfriend is very beautiful, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn't wrong when he described a photo of the pair on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) by saying, "It looks to me as if you're taking your daughter to kindergarten."

The stark difference in their side made it even more unbelievable when O'Neal claimed she could pick him up and carry him on her back. So he brought her out on the stage and proved that she could not only pick him up, but she could walk with him.

Shaquille O'Neal & Kevin Hart, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'When Kevin Hart started cracking jokes on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) about how Shaquille O'Neal has been showing up in the most unexpected places since his retirement, he didn't really think through the fact that one of those places was 'The Tonight Show.'

"I saw him at Home Depot two weeks ago," Hart said. "He wasn't even shopping. He was just helping people put stuff in their car. 'I'm Shaq. I don't got nothing to do. You want me to grab it. I'll help you.'"

Even though you could almost see it coming, it was still funny when Shaq came out and hoisted Hart into the air like a child.

Shaquille O'Neal, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Shaquille O'Neal appeared as a guest on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS) for what was apparently the first time in a decade.

"It hasn't been ten years," David Letterman said. "Has it been ten years?"

When asked why it's been so long, O'Neal responded, "'Cause you haven't called me, Dave." This impromptu response set O'Neal up for the rest of the interview.

Why didn't LeBron James stay in Cleveland a little longer? "He didn't call me either, so I don't know what went on."

Katy Perry Gives Advice, and Gives Away Her Shoes on 'Extreme Makeover'Singer Katy Perry was very poor when she was growing up. She still remembers being so broke that she had to borrow clothes in order to go out at night. Which might help to explain her actions on the premiere of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC).

The goal tonight for Ty Pennington and his crew is to build a new house for seven young women. These girls are scholars who have been accepted into 'Boys Hope Girls Hope' -- a Baltimore program that accepts gifted students who come from difficult backgrounds.

The boys in the program already have their own housing, but due to the economic crisis, the girls have been waiting three years to get their own residence hall. Katy and other celebs show up to talk to the girls while their new home is being built.

O'Neal added, "If I lose, next time you're on TNT, I'll kiss [NBA analyst] Kenny Smith in the corner of the mouth." Deal? Barkley couldn't turn that down.

Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World? (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 18th 2010 4:21AM
Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World?There's some debate about who the current "Fastest Man Alive" is. Some people say it's Usain Bolt; some people say it's Tyson Gay. ... But at any rate, Tyson Gay is no worse than the second fastest man on the face of the Earth. And now, Shaquille O'Neal must beat him in a race.

'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) is a show where O'Neal takes on the top athletes in he world, challenging them in their own sports. Tonight's match-up: Shaq versus Tyson. The pair run a 60 meter race; except that Shaq gets a 30 meter head start. Hey! That isn't exactly cool! So O'Neal only has to run half as far as Gay?

Will the world's (possibly) fastest man win, even if he has to run twice as far as Shaq? Let's watch and see. And no matter who wins, is this even a fair contest for either athlete?

Shaquille O'Neal and Sugar Shane Mosley Do Battle in the Boxing Ring (VIDEO)

Shaquille O'Neal Boxes Against Sugar Shane MosleyIs Shaquille O'Neal the greatest athlete when it comes to boxing? His 7-foot-1, 335-pound frame may have helped intimidate his foe -- 5-foot-9, 150-pound "Sugar" Shane Mosley -- on 'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). Or maybe not.

They both got in some decent punches, and at one point, Shaq briefly stood on his knees to swing from a closer angle. But Mosley was clearly better at maneuvering. After a surprisingly close five-round battle, the judges' scoring was tight: Who did they determine was the better boxer? Check out the clip.

Shaq's Reality Show More Popular With Viewers than Last Season

by Scott Harris, posted Aug 5th 2010 10:35AM
It's been a big week for the Big Aristotle. Oh, sure, Shaquille O'Neal's last team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, may have fallen apart against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals even faster than his relationship with departing star LeBron James deteriorated. But in a classic "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" moment, Shaq yesterday signed on with the Celtics and now, as proof that living well is the best revenge, it appears his prospects as a television star off the court may be as good as his chances for another ring on the court.

That's because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the first numbers have come in for the second season premiere of 'Shaq VS' and the news is good: with a 1.9 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and an overall total of 5.4 million viewers, the episode was up 12 percent over last year and set a new high mark for the series.

Ving Rhames Threatens George Lopez with ChainsawDespite rumors that Shaquille O'Neal would return to the Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA pro has jumped to the Boston Celtics. This has upset George Lopez. "As a lifelong Lakers fan, I say to you, "Shaq, you're dead to me," he said on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS).

After the host finished his stand-up monologue, Ving Rhames charged the stage with a running chainsaw. Rhames threatened Lopez for talking about "my main man Shaq ... Shaq never snitched on anybody," he said.

They made their peace (i.e., he turned off the chainsaw), and Lopez asked Rhames how he got the name "Ving." Guess which also-famous fellow classmate at Juilliard is responsible?

Shaq Races Cars Against Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (VIDEO)

Shaq Against Dale Earnhardt, Jr.It's Shaquille O'Neal versus Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Wait! That's not fair! Shaq is much taller. ... Oh; oh, all right. They're not competing in basketball? That's okay then.

On 'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), Shaquille takes on race car driver Dale Earnhardt. Shaq is over seven feet tall, and Dale is only six feet. But Shaq's normal height advantage won't help him here. During the competition, the pair of athletes are racing cars. And Shaq is in fact at a disadvantage, since his height requires a specially-made car with a lift-off top just so he can get into the thing.

So let's get to the results from the actual challenge. Can Shaq manage to outrace Dale? They have five laps to figure this out.

Jimmy Kimmel Shatters a Basketball Backboard (VIDEO)

Jimmy Kimmel Shatters a Basketball BackboardIt is the dream of every red-blooded male to smash a basketball backboard in his lifetime. Or at least, that's the dream of Jimmy Kimmel -- and he counts as a red-blooded male, right?

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night,' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC), the host lives out his hoop dreams by shattering a plexiglass backboard. By doing this, he joins the ranks of such famed b-ball players as Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal. Awesome job, Jimmy Kimmel, way to go!

But sadly, Kimmel seems to have gotten a little help in his quest. For one thing, the basketball hoop looks like it's about five feet tall -- not the required ten feet. And not that we're doubting Jimmy's athletic prowess or anything, but the backboard breaks suspiciously easily ... almost as if it had been specially altered or something.

The NBA Playoffs Tip-Off with Timberlake and Foxx

jamie_foxx_justin_timberlake_nbaThe post-season has arrived for the National Basketball Association. The NBA Playoffs are upon us, starting today on ABC and ESPN, and tomorrow night on TNT, and that means the networks are shifting into overdrive to present all the games, all the action, and -- especially -- all the stars to the viewing public. Shaq, Kobe, LeBron, Dwayne, Dirk, Rajon ... if you're a fan, you don't need the last names. That's how big the star power is for NBA elite players.

It's perhaps even bigger than the NFL or any other major league. And that's one reason why the NBA is not the number one sport in America, but it is the number one marketed sport. That's a point illustrated in the new promo for the TNT broadcasts featuring music and movie stars Jamie Foxx and Justin Timberlake extolling the virtues of the NBA playoffs.
