This week on The Sarah Silverman Program, two of the most subversive, non sequitur, absurdest comedians in entertainment joined forces to make some of the weirdest scenes ever recorded. Andy Samberg guest stars as Troy Bulletin-Board, Sarah’s imaginary childhood friend who comes back into her life after being “murdered” by her father when she was a child (if you watch the show, you wouldn’t bat an eye at that statement).

Andy and Sarah frolic through an epic fantasy land that includes hot air balloons, rainbows, hamburger hoses, and of course, the Loch Ness monster.

Did you miss him? No? Neither did we. Well, whether we want him to be or not, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be a familiar sight on TV again soon — as a contestant on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” starting Sunday.

To kick off his latest self-promotional campaign, Blagojevich read the Top 10 list on “The Late Show With David Letterman” on Wednesday: “Questions Rod Blagojevich Asked Himself Before Appearing on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’”

10. “Can I get paid in shampoo?”

9. “Would I rather stay unemployed than work for Trump?”

8. “Should I bring my attorney?”

7. “Do I have anything better to do?”

6. “Is there any chance NBC will replace me with Leno?”

5. “Can I get paid in conditioner?”

4. “Haven’t I been through enough?”

3. “How about my own show, ‘The Haircut Ref’?”

2. “How come I’m not a governor and Paterson is?”

1. “Will my hair get along with Trump’s hair?”
