Chelsea Handler Putin topless
Comedienne Chelsea Handler spoofed an iconic photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin posing shirtless on top of a horse by taking a photo of herself topless and posting it on Instagram.

In the caption she quipped, "Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin."

Later, the site did take the photo down and in response, Handler posted the following, "If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?"

The comedienne then reposted the photo once again, with Instagram removing it and releasing the following statement o...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries
In the second of two new Impractical Jokers episodes this week, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr complicate job interviews, somebody drops their pants, and Murr commits the cardinal sin in the Book of Vulcano by once again involving Sal's sister in the anarchy. Not bad for a season finale.

Challenge #1: Help Unwanted
The Jokers are going into job interviews with resumes created by each other and lines being fed to them; their ultimate goal is to get the job, no matter how idiotic the other three guys make them look. Murr makes a Y2K reference and claims he spent three weeks in a "job simulator" at Goo...

Jim Carrey and David Letterman
Jim Carrey and Kate Hudson nailed impressions of Matthew McConaughey over the past week, with the actress taking on her "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" costar at the 28th American Cinematheque Award honoring the actor at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last Tuesday.

Carrey delivered his own take during a hilarious skit for "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, poking fun at McConaughey's new Lincoln car ads.

"Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward," the actor said in McConaughey's southern drawl while driving the car. "And I don't mean go back and reminisce, or chase ghosts. I me...

Michael Carbonaro Back For More Magic In Season 2 Of 'The Carbon
Just ahead of Halloween, Michael Carbonaro is here to once again be the most entertaining guy on the small screen. He's brought a whole new season of his hidden-camera magic series, The Carbonaro Effect, in which he uses his magic ability to surprise and delight ordinary folks in extraordinary ways.

We spoke to Michael on Monday about what makes The Carbonaro Effect come alive and his equally entertaining acting career - including that time he was on The Newsroom.

"I had a lot of fun seeing the way people react to real moments of magic when there's no magician around," he told us of the s...

TruTV is giving us a bonus Impractical Jokers this week. They want to use the hit power of the show to help launch some of their new unscripted programs. We just want to laugh at extra Sal, Joe, Q and Murr. Everyone wins. Here's what happened in this additional but no less embarrassing Tuesday-night edition of Jokers.

Challenge #1: Deal With It
The guys are back at Foxwoods again, working as blackjack dealers (once they pry Joe off the slot machine). Mr. Gatto also bats leadoff in this challenge, talking about the joys of "warm fish salad" until the gag is beaten thoroughly to death and Sa...

Michael J. Nelson Celebrates Halloween With 'RiffTrax Live: Anac
Halloween is about scares, and what's more scary than a terrible movie with a ridiculous snake? The hilarious trio at RiffTrax - Michael J. Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy - are celebrating the holiday this Thursday by skewering the 1997 Jennifer Lopez adventure flick Anaconda, and Mike spoke to me last week about the joys of riffing a half-cocked monster movie and his plans for Halloween night.

For those of you who haven't yet seen Anaconda, you're in for a treat. "I think the linchpin of the whole thing is, in the third act there's a shot of the boat going away from an Amazon water...

 Tina Fey Blasts Rob Schneider In Touching Jan Hooks Tribute
Tina Fey gave a touching tribute to former "Saturday Night Live" star Jan Hooks while speaking at Elle’s Women In Hollywood Awards on Monday.

Fey revealed that she worked hard to have Hooks appear as Jenna’s mother on "30 Rock." Hooks passed away suddenly on Oct. 9.

She revealed in the speech, “We needed to cast Jane Krakowski’s estranged Florida dirtbag mother, and I thought, 'My God, do you think we could get Jan Hooks?' And the answer was like, ‘Yeah, you can get her.’ She was living in Woodstock. And the phone was not ringing.”

“It made me sad when she passed,” Fey revealed, “and it ...

This week's Impractical Jokers is all about food, as the guys work in a legendary eating establishment and follow that up with handing out dessert to strangers. One Joker bites off more than he can chew, however, and almost ends up inciting a riot as part of his disastrous punishment. Who took the fall? Read on to find out and see a few highlights from the mayhem.

Challenge #1: Deli Ache
Someone thought it would be a good idea to let the Jokers into the world-famous Katz's Deli. Murr gets a little too close to a mother and son who come in for lunch, before pretending to be confused by past...

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'Sing, Ring and Run' - We're Not The World

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'Sing, Ring and Run' - We're Not The W
In this week's episode of Jokers Wild, the Staten Island foursome create the worst charity anthem ever (or the best, depending on how you look at it). They also pay tribute to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hip-hop group Run-D.M.C., as much as three uncoordinated guys can, anyway. It's a musical - but still inappropriate - installment of sketches.

Intro: The fabulous foursome talking about doing good and giving back. Q claims that he makes charitable contributions every month, and Joe laments how many people in the world need help. So apparently the guys got together and "decided to make a cha...
