John Oliver is afraid of the Super Bowl. The 'Last Week Tonight' host has admirably dedicated himself to understand American pursuits -- especially sports -- since he came across the pond to be funny and say smart things on television, but even he is a little terrified of the Super Bowl.

Do not try to get Kerry Washington to spoil 'Scandal' for you. She will not break. She will not bend. Stop asking. Yes, that includes you, Jimmy Kimmel.
It was inevitable. After less than a year on the air, the Jimmy Fallon-starring 'The Tonight Show' has finally found something to supercut: its own weirdly engaging 'Ew!' talk show. Fallon's take on a teen girl talk show (like all teen girl talk shows, it takes place in a basement and doesn't appear to be broadcast to anyone) explores everything that is particularly gross -- er, "ew" -- to the teens these days. What's gross? Everything. Ew!
Well...not really. But, David Letterman couldn't help but bust Oscar Isaac's chops.
Here's a fun fact: Amanda Peet's husband co-created HBO's smash hit series 'Game of Thrones,' and that's definitely something that has worked out for him. Good for you, David Benioff! People love your show! It is wonderful! Still, the first time Peet heard the pitch, she didn't like it. She thought it was "silly." Oops.
Channing Tatum was very lonely as a child. So lonely, in fact, that the guy -- now America's sweetheart, one of the world's most popular actors, and an international sex symbol -- had to go searching for friends in offbeat places. That's how he found Boyd, his imaginary friend, and don't you dare say he invented him, okay, Boyd was real.
Jimmy Fallon's 'Lip Flip' must be stopped. It has to end. Sure, the technology that drives this particular 'Tonight Show' segment is vaguely impressive (there are lips! and then they get flipped!), and Fallon and his various guests appear to have a good time pretending to talk out of each other's mouths, but the final execution is so terrifying, so weird, that it can only do one thing: cause nightmares.
FX’s ‘Archer’ has sustained plenty of impressive guest voices over the years, but rarely does the script flip to see the rest of the world become animated. That said, watch Conan O’Brien get a sexual thrill out of killing in an ‘Archer’-ized short against Russian mobsters!
Benedict Cumberbatch! He has a funny name! And, to his immense credit, the Oscar nominee appears to have a pretty good sense of humor about said funny name.
Actors! They're weird! Johnny Depp may be one of Hollywood's brightest stars, but that doesn't mean he's immune to the weirdness of artistry -- in fact, Depp has kind of gone whole hog on this being "out there" thing, and it's very much a part of his process as an actor. Considering his box office cache and personal success, yeah, it's worked for him.
