Prince presented a memorable halftime show at the Super Bowl and Britney Spears shaved her head and began her yearlong meltdown.

Remember Anna Nicole Smith? The last time the Bucs made the playoffs was the year she was laid to rest in the Bahamas.

Whoopi Goldberg joined the view and Drew Carey took on hosting duties of The Price is Right.
