  • This has been the week of interviews and co-hosts for Trending Now. On Monday, we had Brian Stelter, author of the much-talked-about "Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV," as our in-studio guest. Wednesday, we were pleased to be joined by Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin Malone on NBC's "The Office." So what better way to help bring this week to a close than having one of Yahoo!'s very own, Michael Yo, host of "The Yo! Show" and a correspondent for omg! Insider to co-host the show.

    Yo and I both happen to be from Houston, Texas, and while we did not know each other growing up on the humid streets of "H-town," we were able to connect on a lot of things, including watching local TV in Houston. Therefore, it's fitting that today, the viral video we discussed comes to us courtesy of KHOU in Houston.

    Meteorologist David Paul had an unfortunate case of the hiccups that started as he was beginning the live broadcast. After the anchors at the news desk toss to Paul,

  • NBC's "The Office" has become a cultural phenomenon. For the past nine seasons, many of us have enjoyed the awkward, hilarious, and heartfelt adventures of the fictional staff at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. But on May 16, "The Office" is clocking out for good with the show's final episode, appropriately titled "Finale."

    One of the show's stars, Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin Malone, the accountant and frontman of the bands Scrantonicity and Scrantonicity 2 on the series, stopped by Trending Now to talk to us about wrapping a show that has been a major part of this life for the last decade. Baumgartner also told us about the cast's off-camera antics.

    The wrap party for the series is being held this weekend in Scranton, and Baumgartner described how emotional it would be for the cast to say goodbye. He said that during the first couple of seasons of the show, each week, the cast would try to get together to watch the newest episode at someone's home. As

  • Animals have been known to express emotion in a very human way. So it's no surprise that when Bella the dog lost her best friend, Beavis the beaver, she mourned the loss in a way that wasn't much different from how a human would mourn in a similar situation.

    Before Beavis passed away, he and Bella were inseparable. They ate together, played together, and even shared living quarters. Beavis passed away in 2012, but the pair's story resurfaced after a video that the owner shot of the two appeared on Reddit.

    In the heartbreaking video, Bella lies by the side of her deceased companion and appears to cling to the idea that Beavis might just sleeping. As Bella seems to realize that her friend is not coming to life, she whimpers, nuzzles, and licks her friend as if trying to say goodbye.

    As Bella continues to lie beside Beavis, other dogs play in the background, but she isn't distracted. According to her owner, Bella stayed by Beavis's side for several hours.

  • When you are a high school student, the month of April holds a lot of significance, especially during your senior year. Not only may you be deciding where you'll spend the next four years, but you're also likely preparing to attend one of the most significant parties of your teenage years -- prom.

    As time marches on and new technologies arrive, so do new trends. The newest trend taking over the prom world is called a prom-posal, and it's exactly as it sounds. It's when a suitor asks his or her date of choice to prom in an elaborate, clever way.

    In recent years, prom-posals have become more and more outrageous, and one that was recently uploaded to YouTube has become a favorite of the "Trending Now" team. The video, "Pokemon Prom Proposal," shows students in a school cafeteria chanting the name of a boy, Terry, as he asks a girl, Maxine, to prom. ("Pokemon" is a popular animated series and card game.)

    Terry starts at the top of the stairs after a student on a megaphone asks for the
