The hairy-chested Yeti crab, which survives in an environment of no light, little oxygen, extreme temperatures and tremendous pressure, may not be able to survive a warming ocean, scientists say. The alien-like crab -- nicknamed the "Hoff" in honor of David Hasselhoff's similarly hairy torso -- was discovered in 2009, living on the perimeter of hydrothermal vents thousands of feet beneath the Indian and Arctic oceans. The area around the hydrothermal vents is beyond extreme. The vents heat the water to temperatures of 716 degrees Fahrenheit and spew plumes of noxious chemicals, creating an acidic environment with high levels of heavy metals and hydrogen sulfide.

Just how popular is David Hasselhoff, the star and executive producer of the syndicated TV series "Baywatch"? Enormously. "Baywatch," which enters its fifth season this fall, is seen weekly by more than 1 billion viewers worldwide , and Hasselhoff recently signed a deal to produce and star in a spinoff of the series in 1995 or 1996. Hasselhoff also is a hot commodity on the European circuit.

Flanked by a squadron of dancing German maidens and swinging his best Vegas-ready groove, David Hasselhoff — former "Baywatch" star, European rock god, ex- "America's Got Talent" judge and drunken YouTube sensation — stormed into a packed Sony Studios soundstage and launched into a hearty rendition of the '70s classic "Hooked on a Feeling. " "I'm high on believing that you're in love with ME!" "The Hoff" crooned, maneuvering through a throng of cheering fans and celebrities for the taping of "The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff," which premieres Sunday on the cable network.

There is absolutely no good reason why David Hasselhoff shouldn't have a reality show. During this time of economic crisis, "a camera in every kitchen" seems to have replaced the promise of "a chicken in every pot," and apparently the Hoff needs the money. He says so, quite plainly, in Sunday's premiere episode of A&E's "The Hasselhoffs. " He's speaking to his daughter Hayley, who is just about to get her big break as pretty girl Amber on ABC Family's "Huge. " But as he spends much of the rest of the episode trying to persuade his younger daughter, Taylor-Ann, to stay in school "for at least a year or two" instead of pursuing a career in a rock band, a certain moral balance is achieved.

Tacky and intermittently entertaining is all"Piranha 3DD"sets out to be, and that is all this playfully graphic horror-comedy sequel accomplishes. It is a relative compliment to call the film a perfectly acceptable summertime air conditioner movie for those looking to zone out in a cool room for a spell. The film centers on marine biology student Maddy (Danielle Panabaker), who plans to spend the summer working alongside her stepfather (David Koechner) running the family water park, which following her mother's passing he has refashioned into a more adult-themed attraction.

SUNDAY What would you do if you had the "Same Name" as a celeb like former "Baywatch" star David Hasselhoff — besides change your name, we mean? Perhaps you'd swap lives for a spell. That's the switcheroo premise of this new reality series. (CBS, 8:59 p.m.) Things are looking "dicey" on "Entourage" as controversial stand-up comic Andrew Dice Clay — banned from MTV way back in the day, don't you know — will be getting his very own story arc when the showbiz comedy launches its final season.

It didn't seem possible that "Dancing With the Stars" could outdo itself in the casting department. After last season's winning combination of Kate Gosselin, Shannen Doherty and Pamela Anderson, senior producer and head of casting Deena Katz decided she had two choices: retire or up her game. Katz opted to challenge herself and wound up with a Season 11 cast that is bound to get the whole country on its feet. Seriously, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino ("Jersey Shore") is going to cha cha cha and compete against singer Michael Bolton, Kyle Massey ("Cory in the House")
