The Colbert Outtakes

CBS announced today that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert will take over as host of The Late Show when David Letterman retires in 2015.

(Throwback) Lovely Lady Of The Day

Kari Wuhrer appeared at NBCUniversal's summer Press Day on Tuesday to promote the Sharknado sequel. Wuhrer, as anyone over the age of 35 will remember, was the co-host of MTV's Remote Control in the late '80s and pretty much the hottest woman in the world (or a close second to Christina Applegate). As we await the new Sharknado, let's look back at Wuhrer's greatness.

The Floppies

The Point Forward, SI's NBA Blog, has handed out its second annual Floppie Awards for the 10 most ridiculous dives of the 2013-14 season. Congrats to Suns forward P.J. Tucker for being named Individual Flopper of the Year and to the Timberwolves for Team Flopper of the Year honors. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo may have had the season's most egregious flop last night, but he just missed the cutoff date to be included in this year's Top 10.

Arnie's Got Game

Arnold Palmer cheated on girlfriend Kate Upton and posed with Audrina PatridgeKatie Sundseth, Meghan Hardin and Jennifer Bosworth while at Augusta yesterday. Yes, I know what you're thinking, so here are more photos of Hardin.
