5 Ridiculously Expensive Foods

We suddenly became hungry -- and wanted a bigger paycheck -- after reading about wacky, overpriced foods like the $1,000 jam and the world's most expensive chocolate pudding. But this is far from the first time someone's had the bright idea to charge thousands of dollars for high-end victuals.

10 Crime Shows From the ’80s That Need a Reboot

Love 'em or hate 'em, reboots are all the rage in Hollywood -- both on the big screen, where you can't go a week without a new version of 'Footloose,' 'The Three Musketeers,' and 'The Thing,' and on the TV, where '90210' is back and 'Charlie's Angels' briefly took flight again this fall.

Recognizing a trend when they see it, the folks at NBC have decided to reboot the cult 1987-90 CBS hit 'Wiseguy,' which starred Ken Wahl as a tough-as-nails undercover cop who infiltrated the Mob. (Kevin Spacey gave a memorable performance as a creepy, drug-addicted gangster.)

It wasn't enough for Tebow to take over the Broncos offense -- now he's taking over the 2011 photo meme craze that gave us planking, stocking, horsemaning and batmanning. That's right, folks: We've moved on to Tebowing.

Five TV Shows Based on Fairy Tales That Predate ‘Grimm’ and ‘Once Upon a Time’ [VIDEOS]

ABC's 'Once Upon a Time' debuted to unexpectedly strong numbers last night, delivering the highest ratings for any new drama series this season and bringing ABC a much-needed hit after the quick cancellation of its heavily hyped 'Charlie's Angels' reboot.

As it turns out, these two buzzworthy shows are part of a long, somewhat eccentric TV tradition. Here are five other shows, from comedies to dramas, that cribbed from the Brothers Grimm first.
