In a performance taped two days earlier, The Who appears on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, doing "I Can See for Miles" and "My Generation." Keith Moon overdoes the explosive charge in his bass drum, which goes off at the end of "My Generation" and injures him and damages Pete Townshend's hearing

Being a rookie in the N-F-L isn't easy. You're facing an uphill battle, competing for a job with veterans and running drills that make your college days seem like pee-wee football. But those things pale in comparison to dealing with the media. Ellis Lanksder is a rookie on the Buffalo Bills. We don't know much about him, but his responses at a recent post-game press conference are priceless.

There are so many stupid products on the market, but without the Internet, we might never get to see them. For instance, there's the Treadmobile. At first glance, it looks cool. But when you think about it, it's one of the dumbest and least worthwhile items ever invented. It's a treadmill vehicle that you operate by jogging on it. Confused? We don't blame you.

There are so many reality shows on T-V. Hundreds of regular, everyday people have competed on these shows. They're all from different walks of life and different parts of the country or the world, but they all have one thing in common -- they're "not here to make friends." Check out this great montage.

Yet another member of AEROSMITH has gone down with an injury.
On Wednesday night, singer STEVEN TYLER fell off the stage about halfway through a gig at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Rapid City, South Dakota.
He was airlifted to a local hospital, and treated for minor injuries to his head, neck and shoulder.
What happened was that the sound system failed during "Love in an Elevator" . . . so Steven started dancing on a catwalk to entertain the crowd.
He twirled around and stepped backward, inadvertently falling off the stage, and onto a couple fans.
The SUMMER OF DEATH took a short break, but it's back. Director JOHN HUGHES . . . the man who DEFINED what teen movies were in the 1980s . . . died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday. He was 59.
Hughes suffered a heart attack while taking a morning walk during a trip to Manhattan to visit family.
Hughes only directed EIGHT movies, but they were almost all classics. They were:
"Sixteen Candles", 1984
"The Breakfast Club", 1985
"Weird Science", 1985
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off", 1986
"Planes, Trains and Automobiles", 1987
"She's Having a Baby", 1988
"Uncle Buck", 1989
"Curly Sue", 1991

In 1983, Lorne Michaels produced a prime-time television program called The New Show. Comedian-actor Steve Martin was on that show, and Michael Jackson's death last week reminded him of a hysterical "Billie Jean" parody video that he did for the opening segment of the very first show.

Seth Rogen is becoming one of Hollywood's biggest comic actors and writers. The 27-year-old Canadian has always been a funnyman, even when he was 13 and performing stand-up at the Comedy Gym in Vancouver. Video of the 10-minute performance surfaced on the Internet this week.

FX finally wised up and broadcast one of the greatest movies of all time, "Snakes on a Plane", this past weekend. Of course, they had to do something about SAM JACKSON'S classic line, "I have had it with these mother(effin') snakes on this mother(effin') plane!"
The way they handled it was either TOTALLY BRILLIANT or COMPLETELY BIZARRE. Either way, it was AWESOME. Check it out . . .

On this morning's Today Show, the super high-tech NBC team (Ann Curry mentioned "a lot of people emailing me on Twitter") welcomed recently deer-struck Matt Lauer back to the airwaves by devoting no less than three segments to making fun of him. He looks particularly "over it" in the following clip, as Good Morning America bestows him with the not-greatest gift of all: an enormous "MATT XING" road sign that he'll probably attempt to toss in the trash (à la Jemaine with Mel's heinous portrait in Flight of the Conchords). Lauer's a good sport throughout the inanity, but I desperately wanted him to shout at Curry and the scores of be-antlered tourists, "Uh, guys...I could have, like, DIED." Deer are no joke! Welcome back, sir.

An extended and previously unreleased version of The BEATLES' "White Album" track "Revolution 1" has surfaced on the Internet. You Tube has it labeled as Take 20, which is what you hear Abbey Road engineer GEOFF EMERICK slate it as, but this is actually what the Beatles recorded on the first day of the sessions for the double-LP on May 30th, 1968, and continued working on the following day as well as on June 4th. According to MARK LEWISOHN's definitive book, "The Beatles Recording Sessions," JOHN LENNON took home a mono mix of Take 20 on a plastic spool after the June 4th session, and that's what this You Tube file must be. It runs nearly 11 minutes and includes a lot of the material John would eventually use on the massive "Revolution 9" placed on Side 4 of the "White Album."
Well, we found a website . . . called GreenSock.com . . . where you can watch videos of household items being destroyed in the microwave.

.) Here's video of a fireball seen in the sky over Texas on Sunday. The U.S. military said it's NOT debris from the satellites that collided in space last week, so it could have been a meteor. The people in the video running away . . . were in a local marathon....although it almost looks like an old monster movie with people running away from the fireball.

THE FASTEST STREET-LEGAL CAR IN THE WORLD IS A SOUPED-UP 1963 CORVETTE THAT GOES 210 MILES PER HOUR!
Last summer, 58-year-old Rod Saboury of Millers, Maryland (--about 50 miles northwest of Baltimore), decided to find out just how fast his souped-up 1963 Corvette could go.
So he brought the car to the Super Chevy Show in Ohio . . . and tested its 2,400 horsepower engine on a real racetrack. So how fast did it do? Listen to this . . .
Rod's Corvette went from ZERO to 60 miles per hour in ONE SECOND.
And it reached its top speed . . . which is more than 210 miles per hour . . . in less than SEVEN SECONDS.
Just so we're clear, those times easily make Rod's Corvette the fastest street-legal car on the planet.
If you're wondering, Rod's Corvette gets about ten miles to the gallon . . . which isn't that bad considering most Hummers only get about 13 or 14 miles per gallon.

In 1989, 30-year-old George Vlosich of Lakewood, Ohio (--a western suburb of Cleveland), picked up an Etch-a-Sketch for the very first time . . . and spent the next 80 hours etching a picture of the U.S. Capitol building.
Anyway, now George has created his own company, and he's used an Etch-a-Sketch to create portraits of Tiger Woods, The Beatles, Muhammad Ali and . . . most recently . . . Barack Obama, just to name a few.

How Does American Football Work? - Watch more free videos
An Australian reporter asks a group of Steelers fans watching Super Bowl XL the simple question above. Judging from the fans' answers, it's just an excuse for us to get drunk. The clip is from 'Chaser's War on Everything,' which premieres Jan 28th at 9pm ET on G4.

Instead of lifting regular weights at this gym in Britain, you can lift actual people . . . ranging from "little people," all the way up to a guy who weighs over 300 pounds. Plus, while you're lifting them, they yell at you to encourage you to keep going.

It's unclear how much sleep DIANE SAWYER got between the non-stop Inaugural excitement on Tuesday . . . and the beginning of "Good Morning America" yesterday morning. But . . . unless she was hung-over . . . it's obvious that she didn't get much.
--Diane spent much of the show teetering on the edge of a sleep-induced COMA . . . and it was so bad, it actually seemed like she was DRUNK.
Did anyone happen to notice the striking similarities between "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Forrest Gump"??? The people at FunnyOrDie.com did . . . and they put together a video to point them out.
It's actually pretty wild just how many similarities there are. Although maybe it's really not that surprising, since both movies were written by the same guy . . . a screenwriter by the name of ERIC ROTH.
Although "Gump" was based on a novel by WINSTON GROOM
