Boyz II Men is back (back, again) just in time for Oprah Winfrey's last episode and with a little help from Jimmy Kimmel.
"It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Oprah Winfrey" made its debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday night to bid adieu to the daytime diva. The smooth-singing boyz from Motown Philly spoofed their classic song by giving it an even more melodramatic spin.
Kimmel filled in as the fourth member of the group, and, may we say, we may actually prefer it this way. (Whatever it takes to get them to make more sweet music!)

One place Charlie Sheen isn't winning? Los Angeles County Superior Court, where a judge has rejected Team Sheen's request for a temporary restraining order to stop arbitration related to the actor's "Two and a Half Men" contract dispute with Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre.
"The judge found no 'emergency' existed and ordered Mr. Sheen's attorneys to follow normal procedure in their attempts to halt the arbitration of this dispute," Lorre's attorney told Company Town, which reported the decision Wednesday.
Sheen was fired from TV's top sitcom on March 7, with his lawyer receiving a particularly fabulous letter of termination from an attorney representing his former employers. "Men" production had already been benched for the season, four episodes short of plan. The actor filed a $100-million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Lorre on March 10, alleging breach of contract, labor violations and more. The restraining order request was an attempt to keep the dispute in the courts.
Sheen, meanwhile, made a surprise appearance -- though really, are any of these appearances surprising anymore? -- on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night, barging in on Kimmel and Mark Cuban to kiss the host, sign a copy of musical guest Brett Dennen's "Lover Boy" album without asking first and hurl T-shirts at those in the audience. The Dallas Mavericks owner and the actor are reportedly discussing a project for Cuban's HDNet TV channel.
Is it just us, or did Charlie look really old and sort of homeless as he hunched and shuffled around the set with his plastic bags full of merchandise? Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
What would Justin Bieber be without his famous hair: Just another 16-year-old singer, or a 16-year-old Q-Tip who happens to be up for a Grammy Award for best new artist Sunday night?
Bieber showed off the terrifying hair possibilities when Jimmy Kimmel "shaved" the Biebs' head on Thursday night. The pop phenom's "Never Say Never" movie opened strong over the weekend, incidentally, running neck and neck with the Adam Sandler-Jennifer Aniston comedy "Just Go With It."
Don't cry over the hair, young fans. It was all just the magic of television.
So Adam Lambert is safe enough for stations to feature earlier this week on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," but way too hot for "Jimmy Kimmel Live" or "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve With Ryan Seacrest"?
That's right, Adam's been dumped again by ABC. Twice.
Weren't the American Music Awards like, what, 700 years ago? No matter -- they've blocked him.
"Yes, sadly friends, ABC has cancelled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE. :( don't blame them. It's the FCC heat," Lambert said tonight on Twitter.
[Update, Dec. 3, 2009, 1:50 p.m.: Show Tracker reports that a complaint filed with the FCC is indeed at the heart of the ABC cancellations.
According to Show Tracker, the "FCC heat" comes from a complaint filed Nov. 24 by Liberty Counsel against ABC demanding that the network pay a financial penalty "for
airing such an outrageously lewd and filthy performance during a show
and time period that is targeted for family audiences."

Why are "Charlie Brown" and "Great Pumpkin" trending topics on Twitter? Good grief! Must we always spell it out?
If we must: It's that time of year, ABC just aired "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and there's something about a childhood memory that makes a person want to commune with as many strangers as possible.
So now that we're feeling all warm and mushy, let's squash that sentiment by watching Jimmy Kimmel's "Great Pumpkin Remix!"
(By the way, if you missed the real Peanuts classic on TV and don't feel like waiting for Netflix, you can find it on YouTube.)
