5byIn this week’s installment of our partnership with 5by, the video discovery and messaging platform that curates the web’s best viral videos, we take a look at the top five videos of the week from the platform’s TV category. For background on the videos selected, Theo Tabah, 5by’s Head of Content:

In the next season of ‘The Simpsons’, you might notice a few voice changes for several characters including; Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Principal Skinner, and many more. Legendary voice actor Harry Shearer is leaving the show after 25 long seasons.

As David Letterman wraps up his last season, Adam Sandler decided to pay tribute to him with a musical ode that rivals his old ‘Wedding Singer’ jams. After laying low for a while and cranking out a few lousy movies, it’s nice to see the old Sandler. Definitely reignited my respect for him.

In Reality TV news, the socialsphere was going nuts when ‘American Idol’ announced that this would be their last season. After Simon Cowell left years ago, the show never really had the same entertainment value IMO, but nevertheless, it was still one the most successful, if not the most successful, reality TV shows to ever air. No doubt there will be something similar coming soon.

CBS aired the first look for ‘Supergirl’, a show about Superman’s cousin, who can essentially do the exact same things he can. After watching this extended trailer, my gut is telling me this will probably be pretty brutal, but there is hope. There’s always hope…

Finally, John Oliver points out America’s horrible paid family leave policy, like ‘worst in the world’ horrible. This one effects pretty much everyone, and the reality of it is pretty shocking. I’d take the 12 minutes to give it a watch. The moms (and dads) of America deserve better.
