BEST WEEK EVER Preview: Adam Lambert Answers The Question America Is Dying To Know

After months of speculation, Adam Lambert has something very important to tell his fans in this preview clip from tonight’s Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins.

For even more Adam Lambert, and a special appearance by fellow American Idol Kris Allen, check out Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins tonight at 11pm on VH1.

If you’d like “More Lambert” (you would, wouldn’t you?), check out Michelle Collins’ exclusive interview here, as well as his appearance with Doug Benson on Best Day Ever.


Kris Allen Could Be Having The Best Day Ever

Sure, last Wednesday night was pretty good for Kris Allen, but TONIGHT he will be on an all-new Best Day Ever with Doug Benson. Between Adam Lambert yesterday and Kris today, it’s starting to feel like some kind of music talent competition show around here. Not sure which one, though…

Check out a behind the scenes photo from the shoot:

Check out Doug and Kris on Best Day Ever tonight at 11pm on VH1.


BWE Writers Room: The Tudors Makes A Surprisingly Effective Anti-Drinking PSA

There are a lot of things that you shouldn’t do after a long night of boozing it up: Ride the biggest roller coaster at Six Flags, perform a back alley kidney transplant, ride your lawnmower to the local 7-11 for a Slurpee (unfortunately, that’s still illegal in most states), to name a few. This week on the season finale of The Tudors we learned of yet another task that shouldn’t be performed with a fuzzy booze brain– execute a guy with a seriously dull and heavy axe.

Remember, kids, don’t drink and chop. For more helpful tips, tune into an all new Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins Friday at 11pm.


BWE Writers Room: Days Of Our Scrubs

It’s only been a couple of weeks since the finale of Scrubs, and we’re already going through withdrawal. So much so that we thought we were hallucinating when we saw, then heard, Nurse Laverne Roberts on an episode of Days of Our Lives. Imagine the delight upon learning it wasn’t a dream: Laverne is still on television. After doing a little Cynthia McFadden-style digging, we learned American Academy of Dramatic Arts graduate Aloma Wright has been moonlighting as Nurse Maxine on DOOL (that’s soap-speak for Days of our Lives) since February ‘08! Why. Weren’t. We. Alerted?! And, we’re really pissed now because it looks like she’s been sassing up the joint the whole time. Watch as she demonstrates how, even in a daytime dramatic role, she’s one of the great sassmasters of our generation.

Check out Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins, now with 20 grams of sass per serving, this Friday at 11pm on VH1.


BWE Writers Room: Stephen Baldwin Goes Commando On The Today Show

The Baldwins are like royalty in America. They get what they want when they want it, and there isn’t a damn thing you can do about it. If Alec wants your car, you better hand over the keys. If Billy wants to eat Thanksgiving dinner at your house, you better move grandma to the kids table. And, if Stephen Baldwin wants to walk on to the set of the Today Show before his scheduled interview and start yammering about his lack of underwear, then Kathy Lee Gifford better button up and let the man talk.

As long as a Baldwin hasn’t commandeered your remote, check out another new Best Day Ever with Doug Benson tonight at 11pm on VH1.


OPEN THREAD: Who Is Having The Best Week Ever?

Several panelists went missing at the Tweet Up on Tuesday, so there will not be a new Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins until next Friday. (If you do have them, please return them to the cardboard box marked “Best Week Ever Comedians” in Times Square. No questions asked. Thanks.)

While this week we’re not officially honoring any person, place or thing with the title of “Best Week Ever,” we’d love to hear who YOU, the beloved readers, think should have received the honor. Maybe Adam Lambert? Yeah he may have lost American Idol, but who wants to lug around that tacky microphone trophy anyhow? Maybe ‘old men complaining on the Today Show’? Bill Cosby and Larry King seemed to think it was their week. Or, perhaps Jon and Kate Gosselin are the real winners for barely making it through one more week of wedded bliss and child exploitation. Tell us in the comments section who you believe to be having the Best Week Ever.

And don’t forget to check out Best Day Ever tonight with Doug Benson at a special time– 11:30pm on VH1. The floor is now yours.
