America’s Got Talent’s host Nick Cannon and judges Heidi Klum, Mel B., Howard Stern, and Howie Mandel appeared at NBC’s Summer Press Day to talk about new aspects of the show and what the new judges bring .

The panel opened up with a sneak peek at America’s Got Talent season 8, and we were shown a lot of action-packed moments. In the reel, incoming judges Mel Brown (referred to as Mel B.) and Heidi Klum seemed passionate and excited to be a part of the team. Stern and Mandel, returning for their second and fourth seasons respectively, looked up to their usual antics. On a whole, the group had great chemistry and we were pleasantly surprised by the performances of Brown and Klum.

The same from Stern

Since it’s his second year in the gig, Hypable asked Stern if there’s anything he’s doing different this time around. “I’m not bringing anything that’s different,” he quickly shot back. “I’m bringing the same thing as last year. I’m being an honest judge. You saw how great I was last season and now I’m going to do it again. I’m going to take these six and seven year olds and make them cry.”

Mandel and the new ladies

Howie Mandel at NBC's Summer Press Day 2013“I’m bringing humility,” quipped Mandel in response to Stern’s ego – a characteristic that was present throughout the half hour presentation.

Mandel took our question about what Brown and Klum bring more seriously than Stern did. “I think they bring so much more – this show has now gone to a new level in so many ways. In our panel you bring people from different backgrounds. Obviously Mel B. being one of the biggest pop stars of our time. She has that background in marketing and music, and she things differently than I would or Howard would. And Heidi has been marketing fashion and entertainment and has an international view.”

New storytelling, new voting

Producers on the panel played down any changes that viewers would notice, but Mandel was able to come up with some bigger ones. First is the fact that the live shows will be at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. “For the first time in any of these talent driven contests we’re actually sending talent to the iconic mecca of entertainment,” he said proudly.

And there’s one other big change that’s glaringly obvious: “Four judges!” he yelled, referring to the fact that voting is now handled differently because four people are on the panel. “If there are two and two – two people like the performance and two people don’t like it, that’s a no. You have to have three ‘yes’ votes to get through.”

“They’ve also given me complete veto power over the rest of the judges,” joked Stern. “And I’m going to be topless. Everyone’s thrilled about that.” added Stern.

‘America’s Got Talent’ premieres this June on NBC

Arrested Development‘s fourth season aired three years ago today. To celebrate its legacy (and to try to forget how much we’re missing it right now), let’s rank the best recurring Arrested Development jokes!

It’s really no secret that Arrested Development has some of the best recurring jokes and gags of all time. Even people who don’t watch the show are familiar with things like “There’s always money in the banana stand” and “I’ve made a huge mistake.” The jokes in this show are just so understated and catchy that it would’ve been crazy had they not have caught on. Thanks to Arrested Development‘s recurring jokes, pop culture has never been quite the same.

To celebrate our undying love for Arrested Development, we decided to forgo the banner (sorry, everyone) and instead put together a list of all of the gags and jokes that we think are the best ones the show’s ever done. Not only that, but we’re leaving it up to you to rank them!

How to play: Love a certain joke and think that it should be at the top of the list? Upvote it. Really hate another joke and don’t understand how it got on the list in the first place? Hit that little downward-facing arrow. Don’t care either way for some of these gags? Then you can just leave them untouched. It’s all good! We just want to know what YOU think! With everyone participating we’ll be able to build a definitive list of the best Arrested Development jokes!

So, grab your denim cut-offs and hot ham water, and maybe even do a little chicken dance to get yourself pumped up (but not with the hot ham water in your hand, please). If you’re an Arrested Development fan, you’re sure to love ranking these jokes.

(Just be careful about which arrow you hit. You don’t want to hit the wrong one and find yourself saying “I’ve made a huge mistake.”)

Are there any ‘Arrested Development’ jokes missing from the list? Add them below!

Marvel fans aren’t pleased with the twist in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.

By now you know that Steve Rogers is revealed to be a Hydra agent in the first issue of the new Captain America: Steve Rogers series (Read our in-depth analysis of the new issue here). Naturally this news — that ultimate do-gooder Cap would be so evil — has not sat well with fans.

The general consensus is that this shit is unacceptable…

… And the only thing to do is ignore it:

Others think Marvel need a taste of their own medicine:

Then there are beautiful Photoshops like this one of Chris Evans’ Captain America ripping up a tree the comic:

Some people are Photoshopping the comic to make him say things that are just as outrageous as him being a HYDRA agent:

While others are giving him a different revelation — one concerning Bucky. This is the twist that SHOULD be in the new Captain America series

Emilia Clarke proves there is more to Dothraki than death threats in a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Clarke, who plays the indomitable Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, sets Meyers straight on the fact that Dothraki is, in fact, a real language created for the show. Linguist David J. Peterson crafted Dothraki, and all of the other fictional languages used on Game of Thrones — but even after six seasons, his words present Clarke with a continual challenge.

“You get it in English, at the top in the first script, it’s like, ‘This will be in Dothraki,'” Clarke recounts of her learning process. Following English is the Dothraki speech, followed by a literal translation, and then finally the dialogue in spoken English.

“And then I get an MP3, and then my kitchen hears it for weeks and weeks and weeks on end, until I sound convincing,” Clarke says.

But given the opacity (and complete invention) of the Dothraki language, Emilia Clarke admits that there have been times when she replaced her lines with something a little more… interesting.

“With the latest marvelous actors we’ve had doing Dothraki with us, it was a long day,” Clarke admits, giggling. Not realizing that the camera was on her, Clarke allowed a moment of silliness to take over.

“I thought it would be funny if I did ‘MMMBop’ in Dothraki,” she says. “And that didn’t help him at all! And then I think some of that was definitely my take.”

Ever game, Clarke dives in to her rendition of the Hanson hit, translated into the language of the brutal horse lords.

“I can’t stress how much less catchy that is!” Meyers laughs.

Game of Thrones 6×06, “Blood of My Blood,” airs Sunday, May 29 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
