"Today" profiled Argentine President-elect Cristina Fernandez this week, and to prove they take women in power seriously, they played songs such as "Hey Sexy Lady" and "Glamorous" in the background. In case you lost interest by the middle of the story, they even threw in a close-up of a random woman's butt. What's scary about this clip is that someone at "Today" actually gave this piece the green light.

Abstaining from sex- not creepy. Dancing with your father when it's not your wedding- getting creepier. Dancing with your father to celebrate your pledge of abstinence- very creepy. "Tyra" explored the strange world of father/daughter purity balls Monday. When you see what goes on there, you realize they're just like every other celebration. They dine, they dance, they pledge their purity to a cross with a white rose.

Ex-JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr and his 23-year-old fiancee, who lives with him and his parents, talked to "Inside Edition" this week. Creepy enough already, but it gets worse. His fiancee has a 3-year-old daughter. Yikes!

Not all entertainment this week was spooky in a bad way. Last week's "30 Rock" featured a short clip of what could possibly be the greatest Halloween song ever, Tracy Jordan's "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah". The full length video hasn't been released yet, so you'll have to settle with the full audio for now. By the way, if you're not watching "30 Rock" you're missing out on one of the best shows on television. From College Humor
