One of my favorite comedic actors, Paul Rudd, hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend but it was a scene-stealing moment from a STAR Artist that had me laughing the hardest. Justin Timberlake appeared on the "Weekend Update" segment and proceeded to tell us exactly how it would happen if he were to be able to host next weekend. Check out the skit:

You will no longer hear the sounds of teens screaming at the top of their lungs on MTV's TRL. The show signed off after 10 years last night, featuring a roll call of pop stars who established themselves on TRL, including STAR Artist Justin Timberlake. There were appearances by Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera and tons more.

What’s STAR Artist Bon Jovi up to right now? Working on a new live DVD shot during their most recent tour as well as a documentary and a new Greatest Hits collection. They’re actually writing some new material for that Greatest Hits package so that’ll be great to hear!

If George Clooney changes his mind and returns to ER this season, he will not be reunited with his on-screen love interest Julianna Marguiles. She says she turned down an offer by NBC to make a return cameo and, “I feel like I left Carol Hathaway in the best scenario possible."

American Idol winner and STAR Artist David Cook credits his girlfriend and fellow Idol alum Kimberly Caldwell for giving him peace and perspective in the midst of the reality show’s frenetic world of stardom. “I think she just gets that this is all nuts. She's a nice break from the chaos."

STAR Artist The Fray got their big break when their song “How to Save a Life” was in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Well this Thursday, they’ll try to recapture that magic. Their new single “You Found Me” will debut in a one-minute promo on Thursday that includes scenes from the upcoming season of Lost as well as music video footage.
