JOHN QUINONES, ABC NEWS: I`m John Quinones with ABC News. Please join us next time for another edition of "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" on HLN.

A.J. HAMMER, HLN HOST: Right now on the "Top Ten Countdown," Kanye West and Kim Kardashian get racy in Kanye`s new music video.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KANYE WEST, HIP-HOP STAR: I want to (EXPLETIVE DELETED) you hard at the sink.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: It`s Kimye`s over-the-top and topless video. Kanye`s genius or just junk?

SBT is on location at one of the best shows on TV, "Criminal Minds." The twisted crimes, the coolest gadgets and, of course, that infamous private jet.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: So you see why it is called the round table room.

HAMMER: So Joe and I are on the iconic jet.

JOE MANTEGNA, ACTOR: This location is asked about more than any place we shoot.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: We are revealing the secrets of the "Criminal Minds" magic.

SBT starts right now.

Hello and thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer with our live "Top Ten Countdown" of today`s must-see, must-share stories. And we kick it off at No. 10 by taking you for a wild ride. Well, at least Kim and Kanye are taking you for a ride.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WEST: I want to (EXPLETIVE DELETED) hard at the sink. After that get me something to drink. Step back take a (EXPLETIVE DELETED) on the mink. I mean, damn, what would Jeromey Romey Rome think?

Hey, you remember where we first met? OK, I don`t remember where we first met. But hey admitting is the first step.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Yes. This can`t be real, can it? No, that is Kanye West and a topless Kim Kardashian on a motorcycle ride in Kanye`s brand-new music video for his song "Bound Two," which is bound to be making jaws drop everywhere.

Ever since it appeared online this morning, there`s been a Kimye frenzy. And judging the videos going on left and right online.

With me now to judge it here, in New York, Megan Alexander, correspondent for "Inside Edition." From Hollywood, there`s Dean Cain, who happens to be wearing a motorcycle jacket, is never shy about sharing with us what he thinks. Dean`s new movie is "Defending Santa." It`s terrific. It appears Sunday, November 24, on the Ion Television Network.

So, Kim and Kanye appear to be doing, well, it while whizzing by on that motorcycle. I can`t help but think about how Kim became famous, you know, with her sex tape, which is ironically, of course, something that she never wants to talk about. Megan, every time she`s in the news more and more people download that sex tape. I have a feeling that download is going crazy tonight. This is just too over-the-top, right?

MEGAN ALEXANDER, CORRESPONDENT, "INSIDE EDITION": Completely over-the-top. I mean, look, it`s a joke that this woman says she believes in empowering girls and healthy body image and working hard, A.J., and she does something like this. Those lyrics are so demeaning to women. Being topless on this motorcycle. Everything about this is so sad to me. Ladies, this is not a role model. You can`t have your cake and eat it, too. This is awful.

HAMMER: Yes. And but look at what we get here, though. We get the bouncing motorcycle. You get your topless Kim, who by the way, should be wearing a helmet, I want to point out. You get the looks on their faces. It`s really tough to point your finger at any one thing.

A lot of fans, however, split right down the middle on this. Some saying it`s epic, others outrageous, like Megan. Dean Cain, let me bring you in, my friend. And again, kudos to you on choosing that motorcycle jacket to wear.

I say it looks like a pornographic shampoo commercial, but what are you thinking?

DEAN CAIN, ACTOR: It could very well be. I`m more about safety. I think it`s an unsafe video. That`s why I wore my proper leather to show you how to ride. And a -- holy shirt -- I mean, and no helmet. That`s really -- it`s unsafe. So I`m here to push safety. I`m a motorcycle rider. I would never ride my motorcycle like that. It`s just really unsafe.

HAMMER: They may have another child on the way. I have no idea.

CAIN: Anything after that shoot. Yes.

HAMMER: It`s Kanye`s video. But clearly, Kim is taking center stage here. Let`s watch some more.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WEST: All the mother (EXPLETIVE DELETED) name, and you know it now. When the river hold you down, you`re supposed to drown. Bam. Bam.

KIM KARDASHIAN, REALITY TV STAR: Uh-huh, honey.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: So you have Kim, a silhouette sprawled across the bike there. It`s a silhouette sprawl, Megan.

Now, Kim had hinted on possibly doing another "Playboy" spread post-baby. She chose to sprawl in this video instead. A better move than "Playboy"?

ALEXANDER: No. It`s awful. Come on. You know I`m going to say that. And A.J., look, I love Ellen DeGeneres, but she premiered this video on her show. I am shocked that it`s even...

HAMMER: It surprised me, too.

ALEXANDER: It very much surprised me. I`m shocked it`s on television again. I don`t find anything cute or funny or interesting about this. But in the world we live in, where shock and awe and controversy always gets attention...

HAMMER: Right.

ALEXANDER: ... they know exactly what they`re doing.

HAMMER: Putting all the seriousness of it aside, but she does look terrific. We have to cop to that. Come on.

ALEXANDER: If she puts on some clothes.

CAIN: She looks good.

HAMMER: She looks good. And Dean, isn`t there some sort of unspoken rule in the world of celebrity: If you`ve got it, flaunt it? I mean, come on.

CAIN: I think it`s actually spoken. I think they yell it quite loudly.

I`m glad Megan is doing all the heavy lifting on this piece, by the way. Thank you.

ALEXANDER: You`re welcome.

CAIN: I can just make fun of things and be light and easy. I appreciate that very much.

And I will say, I like some of Kanye`s music. This one is not going to be my favorite jam. I`m more of a "Gold Digger" fan.

HAMMER: OK. May I read just one comment? This was from Caribbean Globe (ph) commented on the Bossip Web site: "This was cheap. I would feel so disrespected if I were her."

You know what? I think this is on both of them.

ALEXANDER: I totally agree. Yes. You should not be honoring your woman this way, Kanye. You can do a lot better.

HAMMER: It`s so silly and cheesy. And I think -- I actually think that`s a part of the point. The lyrics, a whole other discussion.

Megan, Dean, thank you both so much.

Dean`s new movie is called "Defending Santa." You can catch it this Sunday when it premieres on Ion Television.

So, with Kimye making what they believe in beautiful music together, but could there be beautiful music coming again from `N Sync?

Very exciting question taking us to No. 9 in our countdown. It`s my headline-making one-on-one with Joey Fatone as we took to the streets of New York City, just steps away from Central Park.

Now, Joey has been traveling the country with his great cooking show. It`s called "My Family Recipe Rocks." That airs Sunday nights on the Live Well Network. But will ``N Sync get cooking again, for a reunion tour, perhaps?

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: Everybody is still talking about the fact that you got together with the guys.

JOEY FATONE, HOST, "MY FAMILY RECIPE ROCKS": We did.

HAMMER: And did the `N Sync reunion...

FATONE: Yes.

HAMMER: ... at the Video Music Awards, which looked to us like they were having an absolute blast. Shall we watch a little bit of it?

FATONE: Sure, yes.

HAMMER: We`re going to project it on the sky.

FATONE: That would be awesome. It`s like the bat signal.

(MUSIC)

HAMMER: So look how much fun that is.

FATONE: It`s great.

HAMMER: Although, as we were about to play the clip, you were almost -- were hesitating, like, "It wasn`t that much."

FATONE: It wasn`t that much. It was all right. It was really cool. Because it was just something that -- very nostalgic about it, I think, getting back together. We sat there. We were about to rehearse, cracking jokes and reminisce about old times and get to work and it is like old times.

You know what? But it is a weird vibe, almost like a, hey, you know what? Glad to see you guys back. May not be whatever. May not be, you know, a tour but just to be there.

HAMMER: That`s the thing. And you had to expect sort of this loud noise that was coming from the fans with the speculation that what does this mean? Are they getting back together?

FATONE: Right.

HAMMER: I`ve actually heard Lance say on his radio show that people have asked him about the reunion.

FATONE: Right.

HAMMER: He usually says, "Well, it`s kind of on Justin."

FATONE: No, it`s not. It`s on me.

HAMMER: If that one guy says...

FATONE: They always ask me, and I tell them no.

HAMMER: But it is your deal. It is.

FATONE: Yes. It`s all me. I think it`s all the five guys who really have to put their heads together. And with everyone`s careers and what they`re doing, it was -- it actually was fairly difficult to really put everything together for the actual performance for MTV. Because everybody was doing their separate things and trying to make things work. You know, it`s just one dance. It`s not recording an album. It`s not going on tour.

You never know. I never say never when people shut it out. When you look at New Kids on the Block, Donnie said, "I`ll never do it in a million years," but look at them now.

HAMMER: And it worked out well.

FATONE: And it worked out well.

HAMMER: And of course, you did get together for Chris`s wedding.

FATONE: Yes.

HAMMER: Chris Kirkpatrick got married, and you guys were the ushers at it.

FATONE: It was cool. It was just nice to see. You know what? We are doing it for him. Whatever he wants, you know. That`s what`s great about us. We`re still like brothers. So it`s like, hey, man, if you want us to wear a monkey suit, we`re going to wear it. Whatever it was going to be.

Same thing when we were ushers. We were really going back and sitting people. So it`s kind of funny to see. You know, oh, it`s Joey sitting people. Justin`s actually sitting people. And J.C. and Lance. What is going on?

HAMMER: You seem to be having a terrific time with your show on the Live Well Network, "My Family Recipe Rocks," on Sunday nights.

FATONE: Yes.

HAMMER: Would you mind if we showed a clip?

FATONE: Yes, please.

HAMMER: We`re going to show it in the sky right here.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Stick your finger on that and shake it up for us. After about an hour of smoking those ribs, we`ve got to throw that on there.

FATONE: Try it. It`s fun. Do it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: A little shake going on. Not the same moves, but we`re getting there.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: I`m glad people are finding out that you`re doing the show, if they don`t already know. Because I think people wouldn`t necessarily think you would get involved with, essentially, a cooking type show.

FATONE: The idea of the concept I what I love about it. Because it`s real people, real kitchens. I mean, we do go to some celebrities, but it`s fun to go to just somebody`s house. We don`t do random. They actually set up the whole thing. Then we go in there, and they break down their recipes. And it`s amazing how much love and effort they do put in their food.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: Thanks to Joey Fatone. Always great to see him. You can check out "My Family Recipe Rocks" Sunday night on the Live Well Network.

All right. You having trouble getting into the holiday spirit? Huh? This might do the trick: "Jingle Bells" like you`ve never seen it played before.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC: "JINGLE BELLS")

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: This may shock you. There`s outrage over this holiday classic being remixed on the down low by Kmart. Lewd? Or should people lighten up?

Plus, SBT is on location at "Criminal Minds." I was like a kid in a candy store, getting up close and personal with all these cool gadgets on the hit CBS show.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You see why it is called the round table room.

This hand, because I`m left-handed, can move and do things. This one is just here for balance and symmetry of my body. This just sort of -- there`s a lot of F-12 and a lot of "enter."

HAMMER: So Joe, we`re on the iconic jet.

MANTEGNA: This is asked about more than any place we shoot.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Wait until I uncover the one thing that the TV Behavioral Analysis Unit has that the real-life investigators really envy.

It`s a blockbuster SBT countdown. So many stories. Which could be No. 1?

This is SBT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: And the crowd goes wild. Total pandemonium ruled at the "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" premiere. This was in Los Angeles. SBT right there, of course.

Hundreds of fans camped out the entire weekend to see the stars of the movie. I can tell you, they weren`t disappointed, especially when the night`s biggest star, Jennifer Lawrence, lit up the red carpet. It`s all anyone`s talking about now, is that sheer Dior number. And I think the dress pretty much sums up everything seems to be: edgy, fun, glamorous.

Jennifer Lawrence`s meteoric rise comes in at No. 8 on the countdown. Here`s CNN`s Nischelle Turner for SBT on how the "Catching Fire" star is setting Hollywood ablaze.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ACTRESS: I volunteer. I volunteer as tribute.

NISCHELLE TURNER, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): To say the first "Hunger Games" was a hit would be like saying its star, Jennifer Lawrence, is kind of successful.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Catniss Eberdeen, this is simple. You don`t have to destroy her. Just her image.

TURNER: Talk about an understatement.

LAWRENCE: Just please, please help me get through this trip.

WOODY HARRELSON, ACTOR: This trip doesn`t end when you get back home.

TURNER: The first film made almost $700 million worldwide, and Lawrence is now an Oscar winner and one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. That`s all clear now; not so much the day the first film opened. Jennifer found out the hard way.

LAWRENCE: The day the movie was released, I had no idea I was, like, famous yet or that anybody had seen it. I don`t actually think I knew the movie came out that day. I will not go to Whole Foods.

TURNER (on camera): What happened? It`s hilarious.

LAWRENCE: They had to call the police and I had to go down the like -- the, like, cargo elevator and I was crying.

TURNER (voice-over): Life`s pretty good now, though.

LAWRENCE: I have such a wonderful life. But it`s -- it`s great just being able to travel and the freedom and being able to be creative. It`s such a blessing.

TURNER (on camera): Are there any pitfalls? Downfalls?

LAWRENCE: Yes.

TURNER: Me, sitting here asking you...

LAWRENCE: No, no, no. Not you for asking. No.

TURNER: You`ve been very open with us.

LAWRENCE: The paparazzi. But there are ups and downs to every job. Like, there`s downs that we have to deal with. So...

TURNER: How do you handle fame?

JOSH HUTCHERSON, ACTOR: I`ve only had a little experience with it. And...

LAWRENCE: You had the star tour. You remember that?

HUTCHERSON: Yes. A bus pulled up to my house one day, and I had been away for, like, a month or two months. And I got to the house, and there was one of those, like, Hollywood tours vans in front of my house with people there taking pictures, outside my house.

LAWRENCE: While he`s, like, unlocking the front door. And they`re, like, wave.

TURNER: Are you nice or do you just say, "Leave me alone?" Or do you...

LAWRENCE: It`s like -- how you deal with anybody. Sometimes I`m nice and sometimes I`m just in a bad mood. Like, if I`m at dinner and I`m eating and somebody wants me to stand up and take a picture. It`s like that doesn`t help with my anxiety. I don`t have to say yes. I can say no. Because it used to be that I didn`t want to go out; I didn`t want to go to dinner. I was like, wrapped up.

HUTCHERSON: You stop yourself. Yes.

LAWRENCE: And then I was like, you know what? I don`t have to do it. I can just say no. And that`s helped a lot. So it is hard. You don`t want to be rude, because they`re people. But at the same time, I have to defend my life. And my mental wellness.

TURNER (voice-over): Jennifer is thought of by many in Hollywood as refreshing, candid, not afraid to speak her mind. But also, America`s newest sweetheart is keeping the industry on its toes. She`s open, whether it`s laughing at herself about an awards show wardrobe malfunction or comforting an overwhelmed, crying fan at a premiere.

Her inner circle will tell you that`s just Jennifer. That she`s fearless, funny and a fierce friend. You can see it in the bond she`s formed with costar Josh Hutcherson.

(on camera): I did read where you said she`s a good kisser.

HUTCHERSON: Me?

LAWRENCE: Did you read the part where I said he was a good kisser.

HUTCHERSON: I didn`t see that part.

LAWRENCE: We are great together.

TURNER: Can we talk about the elephant in the room? The hair, of course.

HUTCHESON: A very little elephant.

TURNER: What was the decision? Was it for a role? I do love it.

LAWRENCE: Thank you. No. It was just for my life. It had just gotten to that awkward length, and I was like putting it back in a bun to get rid of it. Kind of like this. Get rid of it in a big way. A permanent bun.

TURNER: Do you like it?

LAWRENCE: I do. Yes, I`m happy with it. It`s so easy to blow dry. It`s perfect for my skill level.

HUTCHERSON: It`s a little Peter Pan.

LAWRENCE: It is a little Peter Pan. Yes. It`s OK.

HUTCHERSON: I`m happy with it.

TURNER (voice-over): And happy in her own skin.

Twenty-three years old, Oscar winner, toast of Hollywood and somehow seemingly still grounded.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: She is refreshing. Great to see.

Well, the world will never be the same. Selfie is now in the Oxford English dictionary. So I`m going to say it: there are some celebrities who should be banned from even uttering the word. SBT brings you the "Selfie Hall of Shame." A shirtless Geraldo Rivera, a half-naked Kim Kardashian. Just put the smartphone down. Enough already.

And I`m going to tell you what we can`t get enough: cuddling twins.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SONIA ROCHEL, RUNS "BABY SPA" (through translator): I try to reproduce the memories that the babies still have of life in the mother`s belly.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: It is some remarkable video that went totally viral. People everywhere are begging for more. Selfies versus babies. What`s going to be No. 1 on the countdown?

This is SBT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Welcome back to SBT. I`m A.J. Hammer with No. 7 on our must-see, must-share countdown. It`s the baby and the dog. Theo and Beau. Look at this. They are the photos that are melting hearts everywhere. They`ve gone crazy viral. They were posted by a mommy blogger, Jessica Shyba. Look at that.

Jessica says that ever since the day they adopted their dog, Theo when 23- month-old Beau goes down for his daily nap, Theo is right there, curling up beside him. And voila, we have cuteness overload. Jessica`s Web site is MommasGoneCity.com. And I can`t wait, because Jessica is going to be with us live Wednesday, 6 p.m. Eastern right here on SBT.

And look at this: more cuddling as the "Top Ten Countdown" makes a splash with No. 6. This is the hypnotic viral video of newborn twins cuddling in the bath, all of this in the name of baby therapy, and you really have to see it to believe it. So here is CNN`s Jeanne Moos for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Rub a dub dub, twins in the tub. Make that newborn twins in a sink. Cuddling while taking a spa bath, only a week out of the womb. The cuddling is what has the Internet swooning.

A French newborn nurse, Sonia Rochel, developed this bathing technique.

(on camera): Sonia says she first got the idea for a baby spa about 15 years ago while she was taking a shower.

(voice-over): She loved how the water felt streaming down on her head and figured it would make a newborn feel right at home.

ROCHEL (through translator): I try to reproduce the memories that the babies still have of life in the mother`s belly.

MOOS: To relieve the trauma of birth, Sonia started streaming water on babies` heads while massaging them and playing soothing music.

Now she`s graduated from single babies to the twins, a boy and a girl.

Sonia warns that some of the head handling moves shouldn`t be attempted by untrained parents. For instance, when she cradles the baby with nose and mouth just above the surface but eyes submerged.

A neonatologist we talked to didn`t seem too worried about the spa baths, saying babies have good reflexes to avoid drowning. And we also wondered if this would have any long-term benefit.

Not since Spanish twins held hands moments after a C-section has the Internet been so smitten with newborns. Though there are always naysayers: "Please, people, stop waterboarding your babies" and "OMG, world, stop sharing this creepy video."

But Sonia likes sharing.

ROCHEL (via phone): Thank you for babies.

MOOS: She credits the twins with spreading a wonderful technique.

(on camera): And this is neither here nor there, but does the baby without much hair remind you of anyone?

(voice-over): "Looks an awful lot like Putin," posters noted. Russian President Vladimir Putin. And while Sonia scoffed, they do both like water, not to mention being undressed.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: Oh, boy.

Bat Kid mania is still sweeping the nation and we are still amazed by the story of the 5-year-old cancer patient who got the chance to save Gotham, a.k.a. San Francisco. Dean Cain, a former Superman himself, tells us what he thinks about his fellow superhero.

Also, SBT on location at "Criminal Minds."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You see why it is called the round table room.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This hand, because I`m left-handed, can move and do things. This hand is just here for balance and symmetry of my body. This just sort of -- there`s a lot of F12 and a lot of "enter."

HAMMER: So Joe, we`re on the iconic jet.

MANTEGNA: This location is asked about more than any other place we shoot.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: This is SBT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC: "JINGLE BELLS")

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Right now, the "Top Ten Countdown." Jingle what? Kmart`s brand- new holiday ad is going seriously viral, as it puts it all out there. So is it funny enough to make you laugh your pants off? Or is it way too naughty for the holidays?

Plus, I`m on location behind the scenes at one of TV`s hottest crime shows.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: So you see why it is called the round table room.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This hand, because I`m left-handed, can move and do things. This hand is just here for balance and symmetry of my body. This is just sort of - there is a lot of F-12 and a lot of enter.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So, (inaudible) an iconic jet.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This location gets asked about more than any place we shoot.

HAMMER: I`m taking you inside "Criminal Minds" to show you what really goes on. Real crime reports sharp shooting. I`m revealing all the secrets of how they make the show seem so incredibly real. "SBT" continues right now.

Welcome back. Thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer. Our top ten countdown continues right now with something downright criminal. Now, all this week I`m taking you with me on location to TV`s biggest thrillers. That takes us to number five on the countdown, secrets from the set of CBS`s smash hit "Criminal Minds." It`s all about FBI criminal profilers in Virginia. But as you`re about to see I actually had to go to Los Angeles because that`s where "Criminal Minds" is shot. And what I learned on set is absolutely amazing.

On "Criminal Minds" we see an elite team of FBI criminal profilers working out of Quantico, Virginia.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: She could be a risk, too.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: But in reality "Criminal Minds" is shot on this sound stage in Los Angeles and "SHOWBIZ TONIGHT" went there to find out what really goes on.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: If you are going to go behind the scenes on the set of "Criminal Minds" you`ve got to start in the roundtable room, because this is where it all get started.

The show is about the FBI`s BAU, the Behavioral Analysis Unit. And at the start of each episode they meet here to analyze and track the nation`s most twisted criminals.

A.J. COOK: So, you see why it is called the rounds table room?

HAMMER: A.J. Cook plays supervisory special agent J.J. Jareau.

COOK: Why do you ask?

HAMMER: So, when I, A.J., got to talk with this A.J., she told me she is having a blast, literally.

COOK: I`m getting better with a gun. I`m nowhere close to being a sharpshooter like J.J.

It`s hard to pretend to be better.

HAMMER: Next, showrunner Erica Messer showed me around the main BAU office set, complete with real crime reports.

(on camera): Fingerprint request form from 1997 .

ERICA MESSER: Here.

HAMMER: Here. Marcus, I hope you got your car back or whatever this was .

(voice over): But jokes aside I wanted to know why the viewer obsession with crime shows like "Criminal Minds?"

(on camera): Crime shows in general have just been of crazy interest to people. You`ve been at this long enough to have some special insight as to why people are just so fascinated with them?

MESSER: I think it goes back to sitting around a campfire and telling stories. People love to do that and they love to be scared.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is that a terrorist attack?

HAMMER (voice over): And that has kept the show going for nine seasons.

Fan favorites like the quirky Kirsten Vangsness who plays Penelope Garcia, a computer genius who helps research BAU cases.

KIRSTEN VANGSNESS: But then all the other pens, most of them are gifts from fans.

HAMMER: She invited me onto the set of her very colorful computer lair, but says is it all pretend.

VANGSNESS: Here`s the secret. Garcia can`t really type. This is a lie. This hand, because I`m left-handed can move and do things. This hand is just here for balance and symmetry of my body. This just sort of -- there is a lot of F-12 and a lot of enter.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Single .

HAMMER: Well, next comes the best part of my visit going inside the FBI jet set.

(on camera): So, we are on the iconic jet.

JOE MANTEGNA: This location gets asked about more than any place we shoot.

HAMMER (voice over): The great Joe Mantegna plays FBI special agent David Rossi.

FAT TONY, "SIMPSONS": I like you.

HAMMER: Yes. That Joe Mantegna. You know him.

(on camera): It`s the real pleasure hanging out with the guy who`s the voice of Fat Tony in "Simpsons".

MANTEGNA: Oh, well, thank you very much. Fat Tony .

FAT TONY: If you mind, can I ask .

I don`t get mad I get savvy.

MANTEGNA: Wait a minute. Where did that come from?

FAT TONY: Thank you. You just made my year, madam.

HAMMER (voice over): But here`s a little spoiler about the plane the agents supposedly fly around on when conducting official business.

(on camera): I don`t think the real BAU has an actual jet.

MANTEGNA: That`s the one thing. You know, I`ve been (inaudible) a couple of times. I have met with the real BAU. And that`s the one thing I think they are a bit envious of. The fact that we can jump on this bumpy whenever we want to.

HAMMER (voice over): OK. So, there is a real BAU. But they fly coach.

Besides that detail the show does work incredibly hard to be authentic.

SHEMAR MOORE: I learned how to use a gun. I went to the shooting range.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And we heard something similar from Ryan Maxford (ph).

HAMMER: Shemar Moore plays FBI agent Derek Morgan. We met on the set of the fake elevator banks and he told me just how accurate the show is.

MOORE: I met with FBI consultants that we have on our show, and I just said OK, tell me the world, tell me the life, tell me the mentality. So I mean the swag or lack thereof. And what is the etiquette? I mean how do you breach a room, how do you kick down doors? And what is it? How do you personalize or not personalize it? So, you know, it`s acting.

HAMMER: And it`s not boring.

MOORE: Yeah, kicking down doors is a good time.

HAMMER: And Shemar even invited me to play along on the set with him.

(voice over): Will we break something if we pull .

MOORE: You can try to yank it.

HAMMER: Good night, everybody.

MOORE: And that`s a wrap. "Criminal Minds" Wednesday night at 9:00. We`re out.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: You`ve got to plug in. And now when I do watch "Criminal Minds" on CBS Wednesday nights I find it even more fascinating than ever before. I hope you will too. And we`re just getting started as we go on location to TV`s biggest thrillers all week. Wednesday my incredible experience with one of my favorite shows, ABC`s "Revenge" with a remarkable look at how they bring the Hamptons to a Hollywood sound stage. Thursday I`m on the set of TNT`s "Major Crimes," I`m going to learn the secrets of how they make the crimes seem so real. It`s "SBT" on location of TV`s biggest thrillers. I had so much fun doing it, so happy we`re bring it to you all this week here on HLN.

And I was always thrilled whenever I watched "Lois and Clark" during its four year run on ABC. I mean how can you not be thrilled of any show about Superman? But, of course, in this case it was particularly good because this guy played Superman. Dean Cain. That takes us to a number four on our countdown. This is a job for Superman! Dean is joining us from Hollywood, just so we can ask him about some of the hot topics which, I know, Dean always loves to talk about whenever he visits us here on "SHOWBIZ." Dean starring in a new must-see holiday movie, it premiers this Sunday on ION Television`s called "Defending Santa." We will chat about that in just a moment, Dean, but first as the one-time "Man of Steel", I`ve got to get your take on one of my favorite stories of the past week, Bat Kid, Miles Scott. He is, of course, the five-year old leukemia patient who just wowed us when he got the thrill of a lifetime getting to play bat kid for a day in San Francisco, all thanks to the incredible Make-a-Wish foundation. I think he was terrific. I know he had an amazing time. Do me a favor, Dean. Put your cape on for a second, maybe send him a little message.

DEAN CAIN: Absolutely. Well, here it is, Batkid, normally if Batman and Superman went at it, I would say, Superman always wins, but in this case, Batkid would win. You definitely win, my friend.

HAMMER: Nice.

CAIN: Congratulations.

HAMMER: Nice. I actually think it would be great if you teamed up. I have an idea for you, because everybody is talking about the upcoming Batman and Superman movie with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Look at this, Dean. What do you think? You and Batkid together on the big screen instead. I think that`s magic right there.

CAIN: Heart touching. Heart touching. Done, I`m in.

HAMMER: All right. I want to move on to some other big movie news right now because it`s causing a lot of controversy. There is a sequel planned for one of the most beloved movies of all time "It`s a Wonderful Life."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Look, Daddy, teacher says every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: We watch it every year. We never miss it. The sequel would actually star the same actress who played Zuzu, the young daughter of Jimmy Stewart`s character in the movie. Here is our Countdown question for you, Dean. Is the sequel merely a bad idea or perhaps the worst idea ever in your mind?

CAIN: Tough choices there.

HAMMER: Yeah.

CAIN: That`s one of my favorite movies of all time. So, of course, it`s tough. I hope they do a great job. I wouldn`t want to undertake that. I mean, it is literally one of the most iconic movies. It didn`t do great when it came out, by the way.

HAMMER: Right.

CAIN: It`s done better sets, but it`s one of my favorite movies of all time. So, I would leave well enough alone, but I`m not a producer.

HAMMER: To be fair, the producer does know what he is getting into and stepping into. He wanted to continue the story. If it does work, though, man, he has got to play every single year for who knows how long. Now, you have your own holiday theme movie coming up called "Defending Santa" on ION television. Let`s look at it a bit.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CAIN: What is your name, sir?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Kris, Kris Cringle. Chris with the K. K, R, I, S.

CAIN: And where are you from, sir?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, it`s not so much as whereas it is a when. But I call home the North Pole.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Dean. You`re the sheriff and you arrest Santa. I mean even the Grinch didn`t do that.

CAIN: I know. I know. Someone had to do it, though. It`s my job. And it`s -- this is a kind of a nice updated version of "Miracle on 34th Street" with people who say don`t do that. It`s kind of a different version. I`m a police officer. I do arrest Kris Cringle and we do find out whether or not he is Santa. That`s - we put him on trial.

HAMMER: We can`t wait to see it. Always great to see you, Dean. Have a happy holiday.

CAIN: A.J., thank you so much.

HAMMER: You got it. "Defending Santa" will premiers on Sunday on ION television.

All right, Kmart`s brand new holiday ad is getting pretty naughty.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALES: Hey!

(MUSIC)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: So Kmart goes from that "ship my pants" ad to no pants in its latest viral video. This new ad is just a little too edgy for the holiday or you like me and think it`s just hilarious.

Plus, selfie just declared the word of the year. So we are bringing you the selfie hall of shame. A very shirtless Geraldo Rivera, Kim K, a shirtless Justin Bieber - really, can anyone top the seventy-year old broadcaster`s epic nearly naked selfie there? Will the hall of shame be number one, though? This is "SBT" on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Welcome back to our top ten countdown tonight. We`re now at number three, it`s Jessica`s amazing bod. And let`s show it. We just got this picture of a very sexy Jessica Simpson. Yeah, it`s a little tough to make out, but she is clearly amazingly fit after having her second baby. She just gave - Jessica gave birth to her son Ace back in June. She is seen showing off her gorgeous curves in this one-piece bathing suit while lounge in pull side. The photo was apparently snapped by Jessica`s stylist for her fashion collection with the message "Guess which mama I get to play dress up with today?" the hashtag BTS. Simpson then retwitted the fabulous photo to her nearly 7 million fans. Well, Jessica, as we have seen knows how to take an awfully good selfie. Do we have one of the pictures? There it is. She posted this right after she announced that she was expecting Ace.

But, you know, really not every celebrity selfie is cute. Right? You`re with me on that? That brings us to number two on our countdown. Oxford dictionary has named Selfie the 2013 word of the year. And as they say, Selfie is a noun meaning photograph that one has taken of one self, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website. You`re supposed when you`re speaking about Oxford. Stars and selfies go in hand, of course, but some really belong in the selfie hall of shame. Fortunately none from our guests tonight. From Hollywood, there is actor Dean Cain. He took this selfie right there in our green room. It is perfectly acceptable. With me in New York "Inside Edition`s" Megan Alexander whose selfie is from a red carpet. Where are you? Where is that?

MEGAN ALEXANDER, "INSIDE EDITION": Right there. The Nashville, Tennessee.

HAMMER: The stars do need a little help very clearly. Let`s go right to the star of the selfie, perhaps, of all time. There is Kim Kardashian. Oh, boy. So, she took the selfie a month ago. The hashtag was no-filter. It was the first time that we really saw Kim`s post-baby body. Kanye, of course, retweeted the photo, but I love that he added, heading home. Dean, this selfie, clearly, in the selfie hall of shame?

CAIN: Yes. Absolutely. I have one just like that. And I was going to tweet it, but I thought, you know what, I might get in trouble. And - it`s weird. I just -- I just couldn`t fathom doing that. But that`s just me.

HAMMER: Well, and that`s just Kim Kardashian. So, is it really a qualifier for the hall of shame in your mind, Megan?

ALEXANDER: Absolutely. And I believe that the selfie should really be from the neck up. Just the face. She did the full body. That doesn`t count.

HAMMER: Oxford did not put that in the definition, though. They did that. They said - of oneself taken, you know, with a smartphone.

ALEXANDER: True. I`ll send to correct it.

HAMMER: Why do we have to talk like this when we`re speaking of Oxford? Let`s get to Geraldo Rivera. I couldn`t ignore this one. Do we have it? Are we still allowed to even show it? There it is! This selfie was posted in July on Twitter. The caption, "70 is the new 50. Erica and the family are going to be pissed, but at my age." So he did this and the university in Pittsburgh actually cancelled his appearance.

(LAUGHTER)

HAMMER: They tweeted this out. Dean, a hall of shame or here, you know, if you got it, flaunt it?

CAIN: Hey, man, if I look like that when I`m 70 I`ll take that same selfie. I`ve got to give it to Geraldo. He`s always been a shocker. But, you know, he looks great for 70. I`m going to put in the hall of fame, not shame.

HAMMER: OK. Quickly to Miley Cyrus right now, posted this photo two months ago with caption, "My hair is getting so long." Is anybody looking at her hair on this picture, Megan?

ALEXANDER: No, not at all.

HAMMER: There is no shame in her game there. Is there?

ALEXANDER: Yes, that`s a hall of shame for sure.

HAMMER: And I`m curious about Justin Bieber. What do you think? Can we roll right to that photo, because he posted this shirtless selfies all the time, he did this three months ago. The caption was, "Break finally." Now, Dean, is it shameless or is he just giving fans exactly what they want?

CAIN: I think it`s both. I think it`s a little shameless. But he`s giving fans exactly what they want. So, the guy has some 45 million followers, I suppose. These little people on the Twitter sphere are very happy about that. Fortunately, I don`t have a young daughter. So, I don`t have to worry about that.

HAMMER: Well, yeah, but Dean, somebody just tweeted, please have Dean Cain take a selfie shirtless as soon as possible.

(LAUGHTER)

HAMMER: OK. We`re going to leave it there. Dean, they look to your new movie "Defending Santa," which premieres on Sunday, November 24th, on the ION television network. Megan, always great to see you as well. Snap away!

Well, if the selfie hall of shame and incredible behind the scene look at "Criminal Minds" didn`t top the countdown, then what will? What could possibly beat those stories and be number one? You will find out next. This is "SBT" on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Time now for the big moment. We have made our way to the big reveal of what`s number one on our top ten countdown. It`s the boxers with a real jingle to them! It took a lot of bells to do what Kmart just did. Kmart just unveiled a new holiday-themed commercial for Joe Boxer shorts and it`s probably the first holiday controversy of 2013. Here we go. "Inside Edition`s" Megan Alexander back with us and we now have with us "Paternity Court" Lauren Lake in Hollywood. Ladies, let us ring in the holidays together now, shall we?

LAUREN LAKE: Oh!

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(APPLAUSE)

(MUSIC)

UNIDENTIFIED MALES: Hey!

(MUSIC)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: I mean, come on, that takes some talent, right?

ALEXANDER: Oh, yeah!

HAMMER: Lauren, my friend, our countdown question is going out to you, is Kmart`s new ad a little too bellsy for the holidays?

LAUREN LAKE, JUDGE "PATERNITY COURT": Look, it does really gets your attention. As an adult I think it is funny. However, look, "Paternity Court" is about children and I think about them often. Is "Jingle Bells" - I mean does it have to be sexual too now? I feel like it`s overwhelming and it`s going to be so many little boys sitting up there shaking their bells and the little girls looking - going what are they shaking? And I think for that reason Kmart needs to understand that some things just need to be left to the kids. Leave it for the kids.

HAMMER: You know, it`s point.

LAKE: Who must jiggle (ph)?

HAMMER: I was actually thinking that too. Megan, you`re going to have eight-years-old across America doing this on Christmas morning. I mean come on.

ALEXANDER: Yeah, and listen, Christmas is a very sacred, special, spiritual holiday for so many people .

HAMMER: Yes.

ALEXANDER: But also a time of joy and laughter.

LAKE: And relaxation.

ALEXANDER: Relax.

LAKE: Oh, no.

ALEXANDER: It`s funny. And if you don`t like it, turn the channel.

HAMMER: So, not surprisingly, Kmart`s Facebook page has been praising the ad, you have people there saying it`s great. You also have a lot of people saying, it`s in bad taste. Let`s watch a little more, shall we?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC)

UNIDENTIFIED MALES: Hey!

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Lauren, I`m going with the tux boxers combo this holiday season. What do you think?

LAKE: You know what? I like it. I`m not lying. I think it`s so funny. It makes me laugh. But I just don`t want my son to be shaking his bells all Christmas.

HAMMER: Good luck with that. You had a stunned look on your face as we rolled that out. Lauren, Megan, thank you so much.

LAKE: Thank you.

HAMMER: Go have a ball of a night.

Now "The Hunger Games" comes to Sesame Street. If you think Katniss Everdeen knows how to compete in the hunger games, well, imagine what cookie monster can do, especially when the games are all about eating. You`ve got to see Cookieness Evereat throw down. Really funny new "Sesame Street" of the "Hunger Games" in your "Moment of Awesomeness." This is "SBT" on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Oh, yes. It is time now for our "Moment of Awesomeness." "Hunger Games" with a twist. So, the mania over a "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is really glowing up right now especially with the movie just hitting theaters in a couple of days. In fact, "Hunger Games" is such a huge pop culture phenomenon, it has made its way to every city, town, and street in the country. Seriously, every street. Even Sesame Street. You`ve got to see Cookie Monster`s take on Katniss, because it is truly awesome.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COOKIE MONSTER: No chance you want to eat that?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No.

COOKIE MONSTER: Yeah. I thought so.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALES: We did it! We won the hunger games again!

COOKIE MONSTER: Oh, boy oh, boy. And thankfully me no have to ever, ever play that again.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You know, they`re making a third one, right?

COOKIE MONSTER: No!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The hunger games, catching fur. Eat it up soon at a theater near you.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(LAUGHTER)

HAMMER: Catching fur. I actually think he would be a worthy competitor, that cookie monster. I happen to think that Big Bird - I mean Big Bird takes it, right? He gets what he needs out of the trees very easily.
