Monday: The “Arrested Development” hype machine is in overdrive as the first new episodes in seven years arrive on Netflix late Saturday night, and now it’s taking physical form here in Los Angeles: A full-featured, functional Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand is open Monday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
It was the leg drop heard ’round the world. At Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, R&B singer Miguel managed to drop a giant pro wrestling leg drop on two fans.
While singing the song “Adorn,” Los Angeles-native Miguel took a leap over the crowd — and landed on a couple of women. One of the women took that leg drop straight over her neck.
Here’s the jump with slow motion replay:
Miguel looked to be trying to leap from one part of the stage to another, but he came up a bit short. Still, Miguel took “the show must go on” to heart, as he kept on going and finished the song.
Billboard and Miguel took to Twitter to say that at least one of the women was OK:

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian attend the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.
This weekend, Ben Affleck is scheduled to host “Saturday Night Live” for the fifth time. Affleck’s appearance is competing with other big SNL stories though, including cast members leaving and Kanye West going off on a rant on the show before his appearance as a musical guest.
West performed Wednesday night at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City for Adult Swim’s upfront presentation, and he had some unkind words about the idea of participating in any SNL skits this weekend.
“[I had a friend ask me, ‘Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and shit and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no motherf---ers man,” West reportedly said, according to Complex.
“Hell nah I ain’t doing no motherf---ing SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain’t no motherf---ing joke. That’s it. Stop that s--- right there.”

A baby boy named Liam.
The Social Security Administration just released a list of the most popular baby names in each state, as well as across the United States, for 2012. Jacob and Sophia are the kings and queens of babies both nationally and in California, but number 7 name Jayden moves up to number 2 for boys in California. Each of those number 1 names around 1 percent of the population nationally.
Nationally, the number 2 name for boys, Mason, doesn’t fare so well in California — here, it comes in at 17. There are some other big differences from the norm, with national number 5 William coming in at 31 and number 6 Liam at 24. Two other boys top 10 names didn’t make the cut in California.
Taking the place of those baby boys locally: Daniel, Matthew, Anthony, David and, all the way from number 29, Nathan.
American Idol judges Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as the top 10 girls performed, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 — with a Coke Zero cup.
“American Idol” wants to stay relevant, but they’re facing a pop culture behemoth Thursday night for the second part of their two-night finale even as the show’s ratings decline: the series finale of “The Office.”
The top two Idols from this season, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison, will be facing off at the Nokia Theatre. They’re performing their potential winning singles and other songs on tonight’s one-hour show before a two-hour results show Thursday — which is going straight up against an “Office” special looking back at the series, followed by the giant-sized last episode which also features a jump forward in the show’s timeline.
"American Idol" has some other turmoil to deal with as well, with the only remaining judge who’s been there throughout the series, Randy Jackson, announcing his departure from the show last week.
