The First Lady of the “Ew!”-S-A
First Lady Michelle Obama paid a visit to the teenage show “Ew!” And although this is stating the obvious, Will Ferrell makes one ugly woman.

The Luger Who Cried Wolf
Jimmy Kimmel fooled everyone again, with a little bit of help from American luger Kate Hansen.

By slowing down sports footage, Jimmy Kimmel proves that most sports are just excuses for men to hug other men.

Rapping Up the Week
