Bieber cancels performance after variety show disaster

Justin Bieber opted out of performing on German variety show “Wetten, Dass..?” Saturday after a contestant was seriously injured during the live program.

The contestant, 23-year-old Samuel Koch, suffered back and spinal injuries after jumping over a moving car while wearing stilts, People.com reports.

“Just want to let my people in Germany know I won't be on ‘Wetten Dass’ tonight as an accident has taken place and … we all don't think it is right to continue,” Bieber tweeted. “Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety.”

Steve Martin: Was I boring? Maybe

Steve Martin is getting the last word on his recent 92nd Street Y interview that resulted in disappointed ticketholders receiving a full refund.

As Marquee reported last week, fans expected Martin to talk about his life and career during the event – which was also broadcast on closed-circuit TV – but the funnyman spoke only about his appreciation of art and his new book, "An Object of Beauty." Those watching on TV sent angry emails to the Y, and Martin's interviewer, Deborah Solomon, was handed a note to switch the topic to Martin's career. The next day, the Y told the 900 ticketholders they would receive a refund.

Now, in a New York Times piece penned by Martin, he is having his say about the incident.

An explosive finale for 'The Walking Dead'

Is there any hope left for humanity? That was the central question of Sunday night's exemplary season finale of "The Walking Dead."

Rick and his fellow survivors found their way inside the CDC building, where they met Jenner, the last doctor left there. (Noah Emmerich, best known for "The Truman Show," had an incredible performance.)

After a night of enjoying the simple pleasures of hot water and a hot meal, they soon find out just how bleak the situation is, as many of his colleagues either left or committed suicide. He also showed them what happens to a person's brain when it's infected - everything that makes someone who they are is gone forever. (It's later revealed that the test subject, TS-19, was his wife, who ran the CDC. That explains why he stayed behind as a promise to her.)

'SNL' gives WikiLeaks the TMZ treatment

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be one of the most controversial men in America but he helped "Saturday Night Live" score its best ratings this season, reports Deadline.com.

This weekend's opening sketch featured cast member Bill Hader as Australian Assange, introducing his latest scandal-sleuthing project, "WikiLeaks: TMZ."

"Hello, America, I'm Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, and I've taken over your airwaves," announces Assange as he interrupts a speech by President Obama (Fred Armisen). "This week, my organization released thousands of classified cables, revealing embarrassing details about the international diplomatic community. The leaks did not inspire revolution as I had hoped so tonight I present a new WikiLeaks, where the leaks are even more embarrassing and the details are even more sordid."
