A private moment played out quite publicly for Matt Lauer and Al Roker on Wednesday, as they got prostate exams live on NBC's Today show to help spread the word about the importance of regular checkups.
"It doesn't hurt at all," said Lauer, 55, of the rectal procedure, which took place behind a closed door at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York as cameras waited outside.
"Is it the best 34 seconds of your life? Probably not. But if in 34 seconds a [doctor] can detect something that might save your life, what are we talking about?"
Marilyn Manson: roller skating nerd?
Manson, 44, goes without makeup and looks a lot more like his real name – Brian Warner – than his alter-ego while playing a waiter at a roller rink on Eastbound and Down Sunday night. (Warning: Profanity in clip below).
The 20 seconds of screen time were apparently a dream-come-true for Manson, who is a self-professed super fan of the hit HBO comedy series, which follows the downfall and semi-redemption of foul-mouthed former major league baseball pitcher Kenny Powers, played to cringe-worthy perfection by Danny McBride.
One of the hallmarks of The Simpsons has been the show's chalkboard gag: The audience is introduced to Bart Simpson as he scrawls some message repeatedly on a chalkboard during detention.
Through the show's history, the tone of the chalkboard gag has veered from pop culture commentary ("I can't see dead people") to sheer absurdity ("The First Amendment does not cover burping").
But this week's episode was different.
Just when we thought we couldn't love Kerry Washington any more, along come the promos for her appearance on Saturday Night Live.
She's funny! Is there anything this woman can't do?
The new mom-to-be doesn't display even the hint of a baby bump as she kills it alongside Taran Killam in a series of promos for her hosting gig on Saturday.
Bob Barker wants to remind you one more time to have your pets spayed or neutered!
To celebrate his 90th birthday, Barker decided to return to The Price Is Right for another round of showcase showdowns.
The pre-taped show will air on Barker's birthday, Dec. 12, during a weeklong celebration that will feature pet adoptions in honor of the animal activist.
Barker has returned to the show only one other time since he handed over the skinny microphone to comedian Drew Carey in 2007.
When Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson saw a tabloid proclaiming that he was adopting again, he had to pick up a copy.
"I always like to read what I'm up to," he tells PEOPLE with a laugh. "[The tabloids] always seem to know what's up with my life before I do."
So what's the truth? Does he really want to adopt again? "I will never say never," he says firmly. "Adoption is something very close to my heart. We are not currently in the process of adoption, but I always keep an open mind and heart to it."
Robertson, 41, and his wife, Korie, 40, adopted their son Will, 11, when he was just five weeks old – and have always been open with him about his past. "It's never been a secret," says Robertson. "For one thing, he's biracial, so it was obvious. But here's the thing: when we look at him, we don't see an adopted kid. It doesn't even cross our minds. He's as much ours as our biological children."
Brad Culpepper understands that you either love him or hate him, and he's fine with that. As one of the alpha males on Survivor: Blood vs. Water, Culpepper's big personality rubbed some of his tribesmates the wrong way. He was blindsided on day 10, when his tribe sent him to Redemption Island. After losing a challenge on day 14, he was sent home – much to the dismay of his wife, Monica.
It's not Culpepper's first time in the public eye: The 44-year-old Tampa, Fla., lawyer was a defensive tackle in the NFL for nine seasons. Here, he talks about being blindsided, his puzzle prowess and what he really thinks of women.

Corbin Bleu is a former High School Musical star who is competing on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars with season 13 champion Karina Smirnoff. The Disney alum will blog for PEOPLE.com about his experience on ABC's hit show.
My sister is usually very internal with her emotions, so getting to see her reaction and to be able to hear how much last week's dance meant to her made the whole experience absolutely worth it. I know the dance made an impact. It made me so happy.
It was so great that Karina took my family's emotion and story and was able to put it into a dance. It's really incredible to be able to trust her with that.
This week we've got the Viennese waltz. We're doing it to something very epic and I'm just super stoked about it. We're going to be in costume and we're telling the story of characters from a popular TV show. It's my favorite show.
