A hardcore Parks and Recreation fan (or an insanely opportunistic eBay seller) seems to have disappointed fans of the show - as well as some of the stars themselves!
In the 100th episode of the NBC comedy, Amy Poehler's Leslie and her husband Ben (Adam Scott) travel to Paris and adorably left their own "Leslie and Ben <3" lock among the many others at the Pont des Arts. One fan happened to visit the site to see the lock and was appalled to find that someone had cut the fence and stolen the lock!
Jay Leno has filmed his last ever episode of The Tonight Show.
The TV host wrapped filming on the chat show last night after over 20 years at its helm last night and fought back tears as he thanked viewers for their loyalty. "Boy this is the hard part... The first year of this show I lost my mom; the second year I lost my dad. Then my brother died and after that I was pretty much out of family. The folks here became my family. When people say to me, 'Hey, why don't you go to ABC, why don't you go to Fox?' - [but] I didn't know anybody over there. These are the only people I know," he said towards the end of the show.
The 63-year-old funny man was joined by a galaxy of stars for his last ever broadcast at the Burbank Studios in California, including Kim Kardashian and Billy Crystal, who led everyone in a comedic rendition of The Sound of Music's So Long, Farewell along with Jack Black, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey, who warbled the line "you really raised the bar if you were me you'd buy them all a car." Sheryl Crow came out at the end to finish the song.
The Michael J. Fox Show has been cancelled after just 15 episodes.
The Back to the Future actor's self-titled sitcom has lost its prime time Thursday night slot in favor of Hollywood Game Night - a game show presented by Jane Lynch - after network NBC decided to pull the plug because of poor ratings.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news on Wednesday night and with only 15 out the 22 episodes of the show having been aired so far, it's still unclear whether the remaining installments will be broadcast at all.
The reports come after NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt described The Michael J. Fox Show as a "uphill battle" at the Television Critics Association press tour last month, admitting he wasn't happy with its dismal ratings.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are to host the Golden Globe Awards next year.
The comediennes have fronted the star-studded ceremony for the past two years, and have now agreed to host the 72nd annual event on January 11, 2015, held at the glitzy Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association president, Theo Kingma, announced the news in a press release, saying, "Not only do we have the privilege of announcing the date of the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards, we are very appreciative of Tina and Amy for hosting the ceremony for a third year in a row. There is no doubt they will once again host a memorable Golden Globe Awards celebration!"
Fey, 43, and Poehler, 42, inked deals last year to present the ceremony this year and next year after they received raving reviews for their hosting skills of the prestigious event in January 2013.

Alyson Hannigan taught Jason Segel "how to be a man."
The How I Met Your Mother actor, who reportedly checked into rehab following his split from Michelle Williams last February, admitted he is really going to miss his co-star when the show finishes up in March after nine seasons. "Aly taught me a lot about how to be a man, I gotta say. I was 25 when I took the show. I think we've all been through a lot personally. Aly and I have a lot of scenes together, spend a lot of time together, and she's always been there to listen to me and give me advice. [She] saw me through hard times and good times... I learned a lot from being around Alyson about the kind of person that I wanted to be."
Jay Leno says he was "blindsided" when he was asked to leave The Tonight Show.
The 63 -year-old talk show host felt like he had been dumped by a girlfriend during his spat with NBC producers, who announced in 2004 that he would be leaving the show and replaced him with Conan O'Brien four years later.
During an interview with 60 Minutes set to air Sunday, Jay recalled, "I was blindsided ... [NBC executives said] 'You're out...' and I went, 'OK.' You know, you have a girl [who] says, 'I don't want to see you any more.' 'Why?' 'You know, she doesn't want to see you any more, OK?'"
Jay - who was later given his own primetime series The Jay Leno Show, which aired from September 2009 to February 2010 - believes he was unfairly deemed a villain when NBC asked him to resume his role on The Tonight Show to replace Conan, who quit after seven months following poor ratings. "I didn't quite understand that, but I never chose to answer any of those things or make fun of any other people involved, it's not my way," he said.

Country music superstar Garth Brooks will perform on the final show, while his successor Jimmy Fallon - who takes over on February 17 - will appear on February 3 for a for a "passing of the baton."
Though Jay's future is uncertain when he leaves the show, network NBC are keen to keep his services. "I'm hoping we will enter into a new relationship with him and keep his home on NBC... I would love him to do specials with us and other shows he could host. We're being very respectable of him and not pushing that agenda too hard," NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the presenter is "highly unlikely" to stay with NBC and is currently meeting with other networks.
