The whole "Best Week Ever" gang will continue to dish on the week's biggest pop culture moments including late breaking celebrity gossip from around the world, the most outrageous moments from daytime television, and an instant recap of prime time's biggest moments.

"For almost five years, Best Week Ever has been a destination for anyone who loves pop culture and comedy.
