From MSNBC gushing over President Obama’s eloquence to Fox’s Pat Buchanan dismissing the importance of Stonewall, Jon Stewart ripped into all the coverage of Monday’s inauguration. Don’t even get him started on CNN—or should it be called the Obama Fashion Network?

Mercedes-Benz “leaked” its own commercial of Upton and its new CLK ... in slow motion. Good marketing strategy? The video garnered more than 4 million YouTube views in just a few days.

Prince Harry had a lot to say in an interview released at the conclusion of his second tour in Afghanistan. Here are the highlights, including comments about his brother Prince William’s jealousy and details about his cockpit bathroom habits.

Good thing he kept his bowels in check. When the vice president quickly snuck away from the inaugural parade to shake Al Roker’s hand, the NBC weatherman freaked out. And it was awesome.

The president is really feeling groovy. Here’s another lip-dub masterpiece from always-on-point baracksdubs, featuring backing vocals from MC Kool Joe (Biden).

Live from New York, it’s Piers Morgan! In last weekend’s opening SNL sketch, the British broadcaster let Lance Armstrong come clean(ish) to everyone who couldn’t find the Oprah channel, and Manti Te’o was still confused.

4. J.T.’s Brand New ‘Suit & Tie’

You’ll never guess what he’s wearing. Hate or love Justin Timberlake’s new single, there’s no denying that he looks fly when he cleans up. As he would say, peep the new music video.

3. Hillary’s Benghazi Hearing

She yelled, she argued, she nearly cried. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for more than two hours Wednesday. Here’s what happened.

2.  Beyoncé’s National-Anthem Scandal

It’s the kerfuffle that’s rocking America. Did Beyoncé lip-sync “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the inauguration? Watch the video and see what you think. (Either way, it sounds pretty damn good.)

In his Inaugural Address, President Obama laid out the framework for his second term. On the docket: women’s equality, gay marriage, immigration, and voting rights. Should be a busy four years.
