On Gear Live: Samsung S95C: The OLED TV You Can’t Afford (to Ignore!)


Now that the buzz has died down from the excitement (which was quickly followed by disappointment) of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, BBC fans have something new to look forward to: the season premiere of Sherlock!

Announced via public stunt that was later posted to the show's Twitter account, Sherlock will return to the BBC on New Year's Day while us American folks can catch it air on PBS January 19th. Season three - which begins with the episode titled "The Empty Hearse" - will be divided into three 90-minute episodes. Episode two and three of this season are titled "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow," respectively.

Check out the season three trailer for Sherlock after the jump!

President Barack Obama - White House

Around 10:45 pm EST, nearly every network and cable news network preempted regular programming to pre-announce an announcement made by the President of the United States: Osama bin Ladin is dead.

About an hour later, Barack Obama walked down the long red carpet in the wide main corridor of the White House, and stood at a podium alone to address the nation.

“It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened…” He went on the heart-wrenchingly, poetically describe the horrors of September 11, 2001, an event masterminded by Osama bin Ladin.

Kids -- let's not try to figure out how this would even work. Cookie Monster wants to be the host of Saturday Night Live and we need to make this happen.

In an attempt branch out "beyond his cookie-eating career," the self-proclaimed "cookie enthusiast" has created the audition tape above to land a hosting gig on the NBC program. In the clip, you can watch the character in a MacGruber-esque sketch ("Macarooner"), a news segment and a musical performance (as Monster Gaga).

Tina Fey was awarded the Mark Twain Prize on PBS last Sunday, but viewers didn’t get to hear all of her speech. Fey made the following comments about conservatism and Sarah Palin:

"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women -- except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit 'n' stuff. But for everybody else, it's a win-win. …Unless you're a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years -- whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. …Unless you believe in evolution. You know what? Actually, I take it back. The whole thing's a disaster."

Although it’s been a while since we’ve had some Old Spice commercials to make us laugh, Sesame Street now has us feeling blue.

What could possibly—possibly—be better than watching Isaiah Mustafa in nothing more than a towel?? Listening to teach us about the word “on” while smelling like a monster.

Warning to those bothered by Katy Perry’s play date with Elmo: Major chest exposure ahead.

On today’s Good Morning America broadcast, Sesame Street‘s executive producer explained why Katy Perry’s segment with Elmo was pulled from the kid-friendly program.

“We would never produce anything that we thought was inappropriate,” Carol-Lynne Parente said about the clip which featured a questionably-dressed Perry. “We were surprised by not only the amount of feedback, but how fast it came in. It was a lot.”

Sesame Street has a long history. We have a great interactive relationship with our viewers, especially parents,” Parente insisted. “So we viewed a lot of feedback and made what we thought was an appropriate decision.”

UPDATE: See Elmo invite Katy Perry back to Sesame Street here.

When we first saw “Hot N Cold” singer Katy Perry performing with Elmo earlier this week, we couldn’t help but comment on her cleavage-baring dress. Apparently we weren’t the only ones.

“In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on YouTube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement.

Perry, who recently saw fiance Russell Brand arrested in Los Angeles, once again used Twitter to respond to the news. “Wow, looks like my play date with Elmo has been cut short! If you still wanna play see it at www.katyperry.com Tag you’re it, Elmo!” Perry wrote.
