Team Conan took their protests against NBC to the streets on Monday afternoon as around 100 people gathered outside of the network’s studios at 30 Rockefeller Center in equal parts protest and support group.

“Hey, hey, ho, ho, Jay Leno has to go,” a protester chanted from a penned off area on 49th street in Manhattan. “We want Coco the chin has got to go go.”

The Conan O’Brien fans mobilized on the Facebook page “I’m with Coco,” which has more than 300,000 fans and is run by Los Angeles artist Mike Mitchell and some friends. FULL POST

The following are musician Wyclef Jean's comments in response to accusations leveled against him and his charity, Yele Haiti. The remarks were delivered during a press conference held Monday in New York City:

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the press, and thank you for coming.

Brett Favre's "Pants on the Ground"

Following their Sunday night win, Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings' spirits were high and their pants were on the ground. Not literally of course, but in the celebratory sense.

After the men in purple knocked Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys out of contention for the Super Bowl, quarterback Favre led his team in a version of General Larry Platt's "American Idol" viral hit "Pants on the Ground" in the locker room.

The song was caught on camera and has now become a viral hit of its own. Favre, the 40-year-old comeback kid, even turned his hat sideways when the song required it.

You just knew when you saw Jack Bauer all snuggled on the couch with his adorable granddaughter, all healed from his exposure to bio-weapons and subsequent stem cell operation, that things were not going to go as planned.

In fact, Jack is about to have a terrible, horrible, no good, really bad day.

Fox’s drama “24” returned for it’s eighth season Sunday night with a cast of new characters and a new venue for the bad guys to blow up – New York City. FULL POST

'LOST' cast dishes on the future

ABC held its Television Critics Association Tour last week in Pasadena, California. It paraded a number of talent around to promote its upcoming and current shows, but no one seemed to take any interest in anything ABC was serving up except for the show that has a cult following. I'm talking about "LOST."

The final season of "LOST" kicks off next month and ends in May. And for the months that it's been off the air fans have gone into overdrive trying to figure out the motives and mysteries of "LOST."

So when I learned that I would be interviewing a few of the actors of "LOST" - Emile de Ravin, Josh Holloway, Evangine Lilly, Jorge Garcia, Michael Emerson, Daniel Dae Kim and Terry O'Quinn - I thought I would try and get LOTS of questions answered. FULL POST

Golden Globes: a little for everyone, a lot for 'Avatar'

No one dominated the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards: no film or TV show won more than two trophies, as the 25 honors went to 20 different films, shows, and TV movies.  But if there was a big winner, it had to be "Avatar," which received Best Motion Picture – Drama, and Best Director for James Cameron.

The "king of the world" was a bit more humble this time, saying he had "the best job in the world," and even singling out fellow nominee Kathryn Bigelow – one of his four ex-wives – saying he had expected her to win, and "she richly deserved it."  Bigelow and "The Hurt Locker" did beat out Cameron and "Avatar" at Friday night's Critics' Choice Awards, but with "Avatar" topping the box office for a fifth straight weekend, closing in on $500 million in domestic ticket sales (third all-time, behind "Titanic" and "The Dark Knight") and more than $1.6 billion worldwide (behind only "Titanic"), I'd say Cameron still had a pretty good weekend.
