5 Other Sylvester Stallone Characters That Need a TV Show

No longer content with reliving his past glories on the big screen and on Broadway, Sylvester Stallone is now expanding his nostalgia tour to television. News dropped yesterday that Sly is in talks to bring John Rambo to television. But why stop there? Here are five other Stallone characters that could easily headline their own series.

Post Modern Family: What Would Happen If All the Parents Left?

After some renegotiation snafus, the adult stars of Modern Family are filing suit to void their contracts. While some may think that without Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill, the show could not exist, we find it easy to imagine Modern Family without the primary parents. In fact, there's many different ways to write around their characters:

More Celebrity Ben & Jerry's Flavors We'd Like to See (But Not Necessarily Eat)

If Jimmy Fallon wasn't a late-night TV institution before, he is now -- the Late Night host recently received his own Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor, called "Late Night Snack," consisting of vanilla ice cream with salty caramel and chocolate covered potato chips. It joins Cherry Garcia and Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream in the ranks of celebrity ice cream flavors. Given the media hoopla that's been made of it, it's a wonder that the ice-cream makers don't produce even more celebrity flavors. Sure, it would make the honor less prestigious, but it's kind of a dubious honor to begin with, when you think about it. Here are some other celeb flavors we'd be curious to get a tasting spoon of.

The Scoreboard Doesn't Lie: Charlie Sheen's Celebrity Winning Scale

Before Charlie Sheen introduced the concept to us via a series of confusing and ill-advised interviews, we had no way to rate the quality of "winning." But now we know that Sheen apparently is "winning," thanks to his tiger blood (i.e. ferocity), Adonis DNA (i.e. attractiveness), ability to defeat earthworms with words (i.e. articulateness), ability to convert tin cans into gold (i.e. improve shows/films by his mere presence) and "bitchin' life" (i.e. substance abuse, promiscuity, violence or other illegal activity, none of which we condone or endorse). Rating each category on a scale of 1 to 10, we thought we'd determine the "winning" level of some of the biggest, most outrageous celebrities out there. If you, too, can come close to Sheen's winningness (he scores 10s across the board), he may want to party with you. Or follow you on Twitter.

How Did Real Steel Lure Evangeline Lilly Out of Retirement?

Hey, remember a few months ago, when Lost star Evangeline Lilly said she was going to retire from acting after the show ended, and that she wanted to "have some quiet space," "drop off the radar" and "enjoy a little bit of normalcy" before she got a job behind-the-scenes? Well, forget it. Lilly has taken a role in the Hugh Jackman movie Real Steel, about the futuristic sport of robot boxing, which means she is back in front of the camera again. Was it the allure of fame, or was it simply that the producers knew her price? We got a peek at her contract, and some of her demands are pretty specific. Here's a brief list of things that she was promised if she took the role.

Conan O'Brien Goes to TBS; TLC, Teen Nick and Lifetime Disappointed

For months, rumors have abounded as to where Conan O'Brien would end up to start his new talk show. While it appeared as if it was going to be Fox, various affiliate issues bollixed the deal, leading Conan to his new home at... TBS? Apparently, current TBS talk show host George Lopez was willing to bump his own Lopez Tonight back an hour in order to give Conan the 11:00 time slot, but not every other basic-cable network was willing to make such a sacrifice. Here are some of the offers on the table that Conan felt it necessary to walk away from.

I find today's TWoP News to be very... erotic. Too early to say "sexiest TWoP News ever"? Probably, right?

Oscars 2010: And Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin are Hosting… Why?

Yesterday, they finally announced who would be hosting the Academy Awards ceremony next year, after it was revealed that Hugh Jackman would not return following last year's show-stopping performance. And the lucky host is... Alec Baldwin. And Steve Martin. Both of them. Because... it's... uh... huh? True, Baldwin just won his second Emmy in a row, and Martin has hosted the Oscars twice before, but this really makes zero sense to us, for the following reasons.

More celebrity drug scandals! We don't usually gossip like this, but when stars actually go to jail, we take notice. Plus, Adam Lambert news!

Spencer Pratt Declares Himself King of America; We Have Other Names For Him

Okay, everyone laughs at Heidi and Spencer Pratt's staged photo ops and I'm a Celebrity... shenanigans, and Heidi's so-called music career, and Spencer's so-called "beard," because we all know that they're just trying to get people to take pictures of them, and to get America to continue to pay attention to them. But now it's just sad. Spencer claims he is in the process of changing his name -- legally, mind you -- to "King Spencer Pratt," because, in his words, "I have decided that if there is a Queen of England and Prince William, we need to have a King of America, and I have nominated myself for that title." Seriously, is he mentally ill? [Dear Rest of the World: Please ignore him.]
