What George Clooney loves about the Globes

We had no idea we had so much in common with George Clooney.

True, none of us are 50-year-old acclaimed actors dating Stacy Keibler, but we do share an adoration for the antics that seem to occur at one awards ceremony in particular: The Golden Globes.

"My favorite part is somebody always gets hammered and really screws up, which is good fun," Clooney told CNN of the Globes awards, at which he'll be on Sunday. His two films, "The Ides of March" and "The Descendants," brought in nine nominations.

'Jersey Shore's' PSAs teach Seaside survival

Last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore” was a sort of reel of dysfunctional public service announcements:

  • When you “burn your face off” at the tanning salon, apply a generous amount of aloe and use Freeze Pops to lessen the sting.
  • If your boyfriend takes issue with your constant need to flaunt your panties in public, wear a less cute pair under your club attire. Donning a pair embroidered with your beau’s name will only heighten your desire to hike up your skirt and show off your lady parts.
  • To ensure a second meeting with your one night stand, steal his diamond chain before he kicks you out at 4 a.m. Bring the chain back the next afternoon and pretend you don’t remember stuffing it in your shorts the previous night.

But not all of the episode’s PSAs were “Shore”-ified. For the first time, “Jersey Shore” included an important takeaway.

Friday's Top Five: Funniest parenting movies

Now that the initial media blitz over their daughter Blue Ivy has begun to subside, the reality of parenthood should be sinking in for Mr. and Mrs. Carter (a.k.a., Jay-Z and Beyonce). These realities may include sleepless nights, lactation 101, and perhaps even poop that squirts.

But as much of an adjustment as parenthood is, it also offers plenty of comedy - as evidenced by this week's list. These funny parenting films are reminders that coaching little league, carrying around a copy of  Dr. Spock and making homemade applesauce are all part of the wondrous adventure of having kids - even when you're a celebrity.

Hopefully, the latest pair of famous parents can find some time to sit down and enjoy one of the films in this week’s round-up and have a good laugh. What movies would you recommend?

Rob Schneider turns life into a sitcom with 'Rob'

Rob Schneider turns life into a sitcom with 'Rob'

For the last couple of seasons, CBS has been searching for the right show to air after its massive hit "The Big Bang Theory." They've tried "$#*! My Dad Says," "How to Be a Gentleman" and "Rules of Engagement" (twice). So far, nothing has seemed to be able to hold the audience.

"Rob" is probably not going to be the one to break the streak.

Thursday night's premiere wasn't exactly expected to be "Downton Abbey" (as CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler put it). I didn't go in with particularly high expectations, which is the same way I approached watching "Work It."

What is Liz's secret on '30 Rock'?

It's been a long time (since May, to be exact) since we've had new "30 Rock," so Thursday night's season premiere was a sight for sore eyes.

The new season saw Liz on cloud nine, Jenna judging "America'z Kids Got Singing," Jack conflicted about canceling her show, and Kenneth looking forward to the end of days.

Liz was happy – too happy, in fact. Something was up.
