Sometimes on "The Price Is Right," you win a living room set. Other times, a woman named Sheree wins an Audi R8 V8 Spyder Quattro S Tronic worth $157,300.

This was the case for Sheree Heil from Tacoma, Wash., Monday.

The iconic game show tweeted a photo of the car (a convertible, no less) with a caption hailing Sheree as the "BIGGEST winner in CBS Daytime #PriceIsRight History!"

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were photographed out together during the holidays for the first time since the couple announced their separation.

The family ate lunch together, caught the Broadway musical "Motown" and a showing of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," according to E! online.

Though they announced their separation in August, the couple, whose 13th wedding anniversary was in November, apparently aren't yet ready to call it quits.

"I hope to resolve my marriage in a positive fashion," Douglas told December's GQ.

This week in the NFL, there were sackings on and off the field.

The Minnesota Vikings' coach Leslie Frazier, Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Greg Schiano, Detroit Lions' Jim Schwartz and Washington Redskins' Mike Shanahan were fired on Black Monday. And Cleveland Browns coach Rod Chudzinski was booted on Sunday, according to Yahoo Sports.

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak was let go Dec. 6, which leaves a total of six coaching jobs open ... so far. More could still come.

Yikes. Black Monday makes even the horrors of a shopping mall Black Friday look good.

It's no secret that Stephen Colbert is a fan of "The Hobbit."

"I have never met a bigger Tolkien geek in my life," "Hobbit" director PeterJackson told Entertainment Weekly, saying that Colbert has an "encyclopedic knowledge of Tolkien."

Well, it seems his passion has paid off with a cameo in the movie. The appearance had been rumored for a while, but a YouTube video shows an apparent grab from the film of Colbert. He and his family were invited to visit the New Zealand set during the film's production, according to EW.

Colbert was coy when he recently described his possible cameo as a "Where's Waldo" appearance in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." His IMDB page says he plays a "Laketown Spy" in the film.
