Carrie Underwood got emotional during her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony
The former American Idol winner was joined at today's ceremony by her frequent CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley and former Idol judge Simon Cowell. “This shy lady walks in and sings ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ and the show turned into full color," Cowell said of her first audition in 2004. "That was the effect Carrie had on me and the producers and we thought we may have found a great artist here." Underwood said of the honor: "How is this my life? How does a girl from Checotah, Oklahoma, get a star on the Walk of Fame? I will tell you: belief. So many people who have believed in me."

Why are NBC's Sunday Night Football themes always so awful?
"Sunday Night Football has been on for over a decade," says Drew Magary. "And despite its standing as the League’s foremost primetime showcase, and even though NBC has a small army of production geniuses on hand to make sure the broadcast runs seamlessly (and it often does), it’s amusing that they have cycled through so many different versions of an intro song and ALL of them have sucked a**. They started with Pink covering Joan Jett. Pink is the Spencer’s Gifts of pop music and I hate her songs with a righteous fury. Then they moved onto Faith Hill covering the same song. Then they recruited Carrie Underwood ... OOOOHHHHHHH SUNDAAAAYYY NIIIIGHT. Every iteration of the song has been worse than the last, and the whole segment seems specifically designed to be a softcore video for Kid Rock Cruise passengers who haven’t discovered internet porn yet. I fast forward or mute the opening number every week because it literally makes me uncomfortable to watch."

Neil Meron pays tribute to producing partner Craig Zadan: "He was like food for me in terms of being able to nourish my theater-nerd appetite"
Meron and Zadan produced three Oscars ceremonies, numerous TV musicals and helped revive the live TV musical trend on NBC in 2013 with The Sound of Music Live! In wake of Zadan's death Tuesday at age 69, Meron recalled their first meeting in the mid-1970s. “From the first day we met we just had a similar mentality,” Meron said. “He was like food for me in terms of being able to nourish my theater-nerd appetite, and he was like that from the first day.” He described Zadan as somebody who "could not be cruel. He was compassionate. He was ready to give advice whenever you needed it. He listened, which is a rarity.”

One song made it past the censors: a parody of Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” with “tweets” replacing “cheats,” with lines that include: “In the middle of the night from the privacy of a good-plated White House toilet seat, he writes little Bob Corker, NFL and covfefe. And it’s fun to watch until little rocket man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.” ALSO: CMAs began the show with a tribute to the victims of recent mass shootings.
