Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, Jerry O'Connell, Chris Smith, and Rebecca Breeds star in the new CBS comedy We Are Men. The four men are all single for various reasons -- the newest guy just got left literally at the alter during their wedding when the love of her life burst into the church and asked her to run away with him. So she did. Shalhoub's character leads the group who live in an upscale apartment complex while getting back into the dating scene. Love the scene when they decide to break into Catholic school.

Fox released the trailer for one of the shows we can't to see this fall: Being Human starring Karl Urban. J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman (Fringe) created the show which is set in the year 2048. Urban is a cop who survived a vicious attack who has awakened from a nearly two year coma. All human cops are now required to be partnered with an android police officer, which Urban's character despises. After an unfortunate incident with his assigned partner, he requests a replacement android. He gets a new partner Dorian (Michael Ealy) who is considered "defective" as he is programmed with emotions. But this discontinued android model is just what Urban's character needs. This is a great trailer. Take a look:

Trailer for The Blacklist Starring James Spader and Megan Boone
Here is the trailer for the upcoming NBC thriller, The Blacklist. James Spader stars as Raymond "Red" Reddington, an ex-government agent turned international most wanted criminal who turns himself into the FBI.We don't know why Reddington left his job to become an international crime broker, but he clearly knows more than he's saying. He offers to help the FBI find a terrorist so long as he can work with a young profiler, Elizabeth "Liz" Keen, who seems to have no connection with him. Spader is amazing and can easily carry a series on his own. The action and mystery make this one look like a potentially big hit. The show also stars Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Ryan Eggold, and Ilfenesh Hadera. We'll definitely be tuning in. Take a look:

John Krasinski Challenges Jimmy Fallon to a Lip Sync-Off
John Krasinski was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote the last three episodes of The Office. John challenged Jimmy to a Lip Sync-Off. Each comedian chose three songs to lip synch in a head to head battle. Jimmy opened with a moving rendition of "Don't Cry Out Loud" by Melissa Manchester. Then John countered with a very accurate performance of Katie Perry's Teenage Dream. Jimmy fired back with "They want EFX" by Das EFX. So John went old school rap with "Peter Piper" by Run DMC with a smooth drop mic move at the end. Jimmy then finished up with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as sung by 1984 Star Search Champion Sam Harris. But then John pulled out all the stops with "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men which turned into a duet. Take a look:

Zach Galifianakis Talks Hangover 3 With Matt Lauer
Zach Galifianakis was a guest on The Today Show to promote The Hangover 3. Matt introduces Zach by saying, "He plays the odd but sometimes lovable Alan. Alan has been off his meds for six months when this movie starts. I told you to never to go off your meds, why did you do that?" Zach joked, "Going off my meds is all part of the research. Alan goes off his medication and the guys are worried about him so they try to take him to an institution." Zach said he worries that people will still want to hear about these characters, but he's happy with the movie. Matt mentioned Zach's well-reviewed stint as host on Saturday Night Live and Zach asked Matt if he'd ever hosted. Matt said he has not hosted it and they would never ask him, but admitted he'd do it in a minute if it was offered Zach offered to make some calls for him to make it happen. Take a look:

Iron Man 3 Opens With $175 Million Weekend
Iron Man 3 completely dominated the box office this weekend. The film made $175 million, which is the second biggest opening of all time. Only Marvel's The Avengers had a bigger opening. The Avengers opened with a $207 million weekend last year. You can see the chart of the biggest weekend openings here. Four of the top five are superhero films.
There was not another film anywhere near Iron Man 3. Pain and Gain made $7.6 million, which was about $167 million less than Iron Man 3 made. It was followed by 42, Oblivion, The Croods, THe Big Wedding and Mud. You can see the complete box office report here.
The big question now is whether or not Iron Man 3 will be able to hold the box office next weekend when The Great Gatsby opens. The Avengers managed to dominate for several weekends last year. That will be difficult for Iron Man 3 to do, especially with Star Trek Into Darkness opening on May 17th.
