This could either be really entertaining or really stupid. Probably both.

This Halloween Eve, psychic medium Chip Coffey and the reality stars of Ghost Asylum are going to try to cleanse the home in Missouri that inspired the 1971 film The Exorcist.

They are calling it Exorcism: Live!, which, despite the title, is not a musical.

Jodi Tovay, senior manager of development and production at Discovery Communications, sat down with People to give her thoughts on the upcoming show.

"This is the most dangerous night in television. When you're dealing with the spirit world, there are actual physical risks involved," she warns.

"It is not a hoax. This is a real story that happened and we are telling it. We want you to watch our show and prove us wrong. I dare you not to be scared."

Well, now you've convinced us! This is totally real and not a gimmick at all.

Spooky.

Kermit the Frog has got a new boo.

After Kermit and Miss Piggy announced their split earlier this summer, Kermit told the press that he had a new love in his life. Well, now we finally have a peek at the happy couple.

Meet Denise, Kermit's girlfriend. She's also a pig, but seems to be a bit more chill than Miss Piggy.

As with most things, reactions were mixed on the Internet.

But it doesn't seem like Miss Piggy even cares to notice all of the new attention on Denise.

Oh good, crazy Jaoquin Phoenix is back.

On the "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night, Phoenix got into an insane yoga position called "harness of the hog" and then casually dropped some very big news: that he was getting married to his yoga instructor.

Wait… what?

But it turned out that whole part about getting engaged was a lie to make his story sound more interesting.

"I think like my life's so boring, and it seemed like something exciting to talk about, and I wanted the audience to like me," he told Good Morning America. "They really like people getting married."

Several years ago, a bearded Phoenix was a guest on Letterman in one of the most bizarre interviews of late night TV. The whole thing turned out to be a very elaborate hoax.

Talk about a government takeover!

"The Colbert Report" was broadcasting from Washington D.C. on Monday when President Obama appeared on stage to announce that he was stepping in for Stephen Colbert in his segment "The Word."

Since Colbert had take so many shots at his job over the years, he said, he wanted a shot at his. And because he is the president, he naturally changed it to "The Decree."

"Nation, as you know, I, Stephen Colbert, have never cared for our president," Obama says to kick off the piece called "To Health in a Handbasket."

While discussing his health care plan, he made fun of himself in the third person, Republicans and even the "fake news" channel "Fox News."

The Colbert Report is in its final stretch with the last episode to air December 18.

For weeks Discovery Channel teased that a man would be eaten alive by an Anaconda on television, but the attempt was a bit of a failure Sunday night, leaving a bad taste in everyone's mouth - including the snake.

Researcher Paul Rosolie had constructed a special suit that would allow both him the snake to survive inside the belly of the beast, and protect him from the force of constriction. A number of videos were posted online hyping the event and showing off the science behind the suit.

But at mealtime, instead of a engulfing the host whole, the snake had only started wrapping around his body and biting his helmet before rescuers came to his aid.

The internet was naturally expecting something a bit more extreme, and they took to Twitter to express their distaste - many comparing it to Geraldo's infamous special "The Mystery of Al Capone's Vaults."

In an earlier interview with EW, Rosolie is careful not actually reveal how much he was eaten.

"Well, the story of this is an attempt. When you say Nik Wallenda is going to cross the Chicago skyline, they didn't promise he was going to make it; they promised he would attempt it," he said.

Animal rights groups initially protested the show, and Rosolie says he was attempting the stunt to raise awareness about the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest.
