'HOLD UP, BRO.' The funniest new musical number outside "The Book of Mormon"? A YouTube clip by Lisa Ferreira and Matthew Willcott, in which Lego figures give song to Reynold and Malcolm's Immunity Idol strategy on a recent episode of "Survivor: Caramoan." "When it comes to women, I'm an accomplished liar / When it comes to bros, my pants are never on fire." Not to be missed.
