Sean 'Diddy' Combs changes his name...again

How many names can one man have?

Rapper/entrepreneur/actor/whatever else he wants to be Sean Combs started in the game as Puff Daddy before becoming known as Puffy, Puff, P. Diddy and finally, Diddy. Now, for one week, he wants to be known as "Swag."

For those who have been hiding under a hip-hop culture rock for the past few years, "swag" is short for "swagger" and according to the Urban Dictionary is defined as "How one presents him or her self to the world."

'Big Bang Theory': Moving in, breaking up and a one night stand

Leonard and Sheldon have drifted further and further apart all season, to the point where Sheldon finally got a new roommate in Raj on Thursday night's season finale of "The Big Bang Theory."

Of course, Raj had to go through a long, arduous process to even become a temporary roommate, including involuntary blood work. "Not important" how that happened, Sheldon said.

As for Leonard's relationship with Priya, it crashed and burned, as anyone could have predicted, especially once her parents inadvertently broke the news to him that she was moving back to India.

Doomsday hits: An end of the world soundtrack

So many songs, so little time.

To hear it from the followers of the Christian broadcasting network Family Radio, Saturday will mark the beginning of the end. Those who’ve been selected for salvation will move on to heaven, but the rest will experience unspeakable suffering until the world ends on October 21.

With all this doomsday talk, we at CNN have been contemplating our favorite end-of-the-world songs - music to listen to as the world falls apart, if you will. Here is our top 10 list, to get the soundtrack rolling:

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should we feel sorry for the family of Arnold's mistress?

Mildred Baena – the woman Arnold Schwarzenegger reportedly had an affair and a child with – has been thrown into the spotlight, and the media have not been going easy on her, the child or her family.

While I have no sympathy for his alleged mistress, I absolutely feel sorry for her family. What a terrible situation she has created for the people around her.

So what do you think? Should we feel sorry for the mistress’s family? Tell me below…

'The Office' interviews: How did the applicants do?

Thursday night's season finale of "The Office" gave us the brief, insane tenure of Creed as acting manager of Dunder Mifflin in Scranton (with Pam brilliantly handling his attempt to steal clients); Andy turning Erin down for a date (no!!!); the long overdue exit of Gabe (good riddance); plus one of the sweetest moments ever with Phyllis letting Erin believe that she was her mother, just a little longer.

While all of this was going on, the search committee, consisting of Jim, Toby and Gabe (and later Kelly, whom I guess is out of the running now), continued looking for Michael's permanent replacement. Here's a quick take on all of the applicants:

Bye-bye, Li'l Sebastian on 'Parks and Rec'

Bye-bye, Li'l Sebastian on 'Parks and Rec'

It was very appropriate that Thursday night's episode of "Parks and Recreation" ended a near-flawless season with one of the funniest half-hours of any show this season, period.

Before I get to that, though, there was another episode preceding the finale, involving Leslie and Ben's burgeoning relationship, one of the bigger story arcs of the past few weeks. Their attempts to hide the relationship from Chris Traeger and the rest of the office blew up in their faces when Leslie's mom made a pass at Ben.

This also led to the couple's first fight: As Ben described it, "Should we talk about how you claimed your mom was a Filipino woman you've never met?"
