1. SNL Show Stopper
In honor of the turmoil of the government shutdown, who would be better on Saturday Night Live then Miley Cyrus? Besides performing “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop,” and talking to her old self, she also appeared in a parody of the government shutdown. In the persona of Michele Bachmann (with Taram Killam’s body rolling in tight, white pants as John Boehner), she sang about the government. Featuring gyrating and dancing elephants, “We Did Stop” was a huge hit.
2. Jenners Separate
It is now official: Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner have finally separated. After watching them continuously fight and bicker on live television and with Kim sticking around with baby North, the Jenners have finally called it quits after 22 years of marriage. “We are living separately and we are much happier this way,” they told E! News. Bruce and Kris had Kendall and Kylie together and each have four children from their separate marriages.
3. A Flirting Failure
If you ever had trust issues about why not to give someone your number, this is one of them. One day at Starbucks, a barista named Brody was continuously flirting with model Piper Kennedy. When she finally give him her number, the next day he sent a 15-second video selfie of himself smoldering with Drake in the background. Piper sent it to friend DJ Ben Roc and spoofs started rolling in with the hashtag #starbucksdrakehand online.
4. McCartney Magic
Tuesday night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Paul McCartney came to visit. He is releasing a new album called New, so of course, there was a skit. After accidently bumping into each other they switch accents. With much hilarity, Jimmy pronounced “twerking,” “Honey Boo-Boo,” and other nonsensical worlds while Paul made his best impression of Jimmy’s nasally voice until they “butt heads” and fix their voices. As always, Jimmy is able to create short, hilarious skits with his celebrity guests without taking it too far.
5. A 'Glee'-less Tribute
Tonight, the Glee cast will finally say goodbye to Cory Montieth’s character Finn Hudson. In the trailer for the upcoming episode called “The Quarterback,” the cast remembers Montieth throughout the show. It begins with the kids creating a shrine for Finn’s death with clips of Rachel and Kurt crying. An emotional version of “Make You Feel My Love” is also in the background, making this the most depressing episode of the fall TV season.
