Snoop Dogg pays a visit to 'The Price is Right'

"The Price Is Right" launched Celebrity Week on Monday with none other than Snoop Dogg (who also happens to be a longtime fan of the show).

Every day this week, different celebs will appear on "Price is Right" to play along with the contestants to rack up a donation for a charity of the star's choosing. (Tuesday's guest was Jenny McCarthy.)

On Monday, Snoop was playing for his youth football league, which mentors inner-city kids between the ages of 5 and 13 while giving them the opportunity to play the sport, and he ended up bringing in $72,585. As you can see in the clip below, this is clearly a man who knows how to play the game:

'Pretty Little Liars' go rogue in midseason premiere

After a scandalous Halloween special, “Pretty Little Liars” brought us back to the present when season 2 returned on Monday night.

On top of readying a talk show, Moore has also signed on to play Gloria Steinem in a biopic about adult film star Linda Lovelace, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Not to be confused with that other Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno" - that one stars Malin Akerman - Moore's been cast in the "Lovelace" one. The project also has Adam Brody joining the cast as adult actor Harry Reems, Lovelace's co-star in the infamous 1972 porn flick "Deep Throat."

'The Bachelor' begins his quest

Last night's season premiere of "The Bachelor" began by going back to the last season of "The Bachelorette," when Ashley Hebert rejected Ben Flajnik's proposal.

Given the track record of winning couples on these shows, perhaps Ben's defeat was for the best.

And despite the setback, Ben has bounced back. He's driving cars, wearing sleeveless shirts and riding heavy machinery. He's a real man's man, and he knows what he's looking for in a woman. He's ready to be "The Bachelor," but is America ready to go through this again?
