VH1 is partnering with iFilm on "Web Junk 20," which shows the funny Internet videos we downloaded months ago. But hey, if you're short on computer space, check out the second episode tomorrow at 9:30 p.m. on VH1.


Thanks to my little brother, I have found that Conan O'Brien is not the only one making fun of Chuck Norris. "Chuck Norris Facts" include three pages of tidbits about the action star, including "Chuck Norris has counted to infinity. Twice." I find it to be a little distasteful, however, since his co-star from "Sidekicks" Jonathon Brandis just killed himself.
