Whether you’re surrounded by suburban moms or you get your suburban mom fix from Lifetime’s signature “women in peril” made-for-TV movies, you had to love this “Saturday Night Live” skit about a game show called “What’s Wrong With Tanya?” Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig and Vanessa Bayer fretted and panicked over just what’s wrong with a precious daughter. Did Tanya give birth in the school bathroom during prom? Is she illiterate? So many things to worry about! And Bill Hader is extra-creepy as the stock dude-who-is-up-to-no-good.

First of all, does Beyonce release a new music video every week? Just last week, she debuted the video for “Countdown,” yet this week, she has a new video for the song “Love On Top” — what happened to building suspense? Anyway, Beyonce can’t do anything without paying homage to someone, and this video is no different. Her inspiration comes from a somewhat unlikely place — ’80s boy band New Edition, which was of course fronted by a wee Bobby Brown. “Love On Top” is directly inspired by their video for “If It Isn’t Love,” from the setting (a sun-lit loft space!) to the dance moves. Somewhere out there Whitney Houston is saying “Oh, hell to the no!”
Thanks to this video, I’ll be referring to “eyes” as “liquid orbs” from now on.
“30 Rock”‘s Kenneth the Page is played by totally awesome Jack McBrayer, who is so believable as Kenneth that we don’t think we’ve actually ever heard him speak in his real voice. In this “7 Minutes in Heaven” interview with Mike O’Brien, McBrayer discovers his thumbs, plays “census” and gives O’Brien a bad case of “gingervitis.” Watch and learn. [Buzzfeed]
