Kids Halloween costumes by Ellen DeGeneres

Sarah Palin wigs and Snooki poofs are so last year. But not to worry: Ellen DeGeneres has the perfect, culturally relevant Halloween costume for your little ones.

“Everyone knows that witches and vampires are scary, but here’s something that’s really, really scary,” Ellen says before welcoming Tyler, an 8-year-old dressed as a bed bug, on stage.

Tyler sported bug eyes, which sprouted up from a black headpiece. His head appeared to be tucked into the bed - dust ruffle and all - he wore on his body.

Too scary?

Jamie Foxx sells drama to NBC

He’s already won an Oscar and taught us to blame it on the a-a-a-alcohol. So what's next for Jamie Foxx? Taking a step behind the camera, naturally.

The actor/singer just inked a deal with NBC for a drama being described by Deadline.com as “Le Femme Nikita meets The Sopranos,” the network confirmed to CNN.

Deadline reports that the Foxx shot a trailer for the film over the summer for the proposed project about a young girl raised in a mafia family who is hidden in an orphanage after their murder. She then grows up to become a lawyer by day and a trained killer by night out to avenge the deaths of her family.

Bret Favre's Wrangler, open-fly jeans on 'SNL'

First there was that much-buzzed-about digital short featuring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg, and now "Saturday Night Live" has let another below-the-belt video out of the box – a parody of a Wrangler jeans ad featuring Brett Favre.

The married Minnesota Vikings star has been in the headlines over charges that he sent racy texts and photos to reporter Jenn Sterger, and "Saturday Night Live" wastes no time making light of the allegations that he's played the field.

"I've tried all kinds of jeans – button fly, zipper fly, you name it. But for me, nothing works better than the all-new, open-fly jeans from Wrangler," says cast member Jason Sudekis, who, in tackling the role of the troubled quarterback, is shown playing touch football in a pair of denims with the crotch blurred out.

Girl fight on 'Boardwalk Empire'

Welcome back "Empire" fans. Let's get right to it...

For the five episodes we've seen thus far, each "Boardwalk Empire" episode feels extremely unique. As a matter of fact, I coined last week's episode a smorgasbord. And, to avoid the overuse of terms that mean "large helpings," I absolutely will NOT refer to this week's episode (another gem brimming with drama) as a "buffet." Nope, I'm drawing the line. That's it. No more food terms to describe the show that has offered us so much in its 60 minutes.

IT WAS A CORNUCOPIA! I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself. Episode six, "Family Limitation," was abundant in riveting drama, jolting action and savvy dialogue. Now that I got that off my chest, how about a quick stroll past last night's episode:
