"The Soup" host and "Community" star Joel McHale is about to take on the trolls!

E! has greenlit his pilot for "Comments Section," which will star Michael Kosta and "focus on deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites."

Not sure if this will shame them, or encourage them…

Things are about to get a whole lot nastier down there.

Diva Feud of the Day: Bette Midler vs Ariana Grande
- -

Bette Midler doesn't understand why all the new young pop stars are showing so much skin these days.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, she took a swipe at Ariana Grande about using sex to sell albums.

"It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it's silly beyond belief and I don't know who's telling her to do it," she said.

For context, here is Ariana Grande "slithering" around on stage at the AMAs this past weekend, in case you missed it:


"And now it's whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they're having sex. They really like to slap each other's butts," Midler also said in the interview.

She's got that right. 2014 certainly was a year filled with butts - we're looking at you Nicki, Kim, Jlo and Iggy.

Ariana responded via Twitter, passive aggressively calling Midler a "sexy mermaid" and wondering where the old Bette went.


Midler finally signaled a truce, with her latest tweet.

And all was well in the world again, except not.

As protests continue around the country after the grand jury decision in Ferguson, we are now hearing about the incident from the officer himself.

ABC's George Stephanopoulos spoke with Wilson Tuesday in his first public interview, asking him to describe in his own words what happened that night.

Wilson says there is nothing he would have done differently that would have prevented Brown's death, and that he "just did my job."

Brown's parents are also making the talk show rounds, and they are saying Wilson's interview is "disrespectful" and "like insult after injury."

Daredevil of the Day: Man Scales 920-Foot Chimney in Romania

This video will make your palms sweat.

The latest insane person to climb something ridiculously high with GoPro camera for kicks, is this dude.

Flaviu Cernescu recently climbed up an abandoned 920-foot tall chimney in Romania without any safety equipment, and then walked around on the rusted beams and loose bricks at the top.

Why? To motivate others.

"My message is to inspire people to take on their dreams step by step. The goal is not to imitate or outdo somebody but to do what you love and love what you do," he said.

And maybe also try not to die.

Hi, I'm Martine Croxall, and I am invisible.

This BBC News anchor accidentally stood in front of the wrong camera Monday night, so viewers were left staring at an empty chair.

She handled it very well, however, and instructed everyone to "pretend like you haven't noticed."
