It might have been the greatest television event of the year ... SHARKS climbing ropes, swimming down the 405, attacking helicopters and chasing Tara Reid up a flight of stairs ... but Derek Hough says he REFUSED to watch "Sharknado" last night.
Clearly, Hough was too closed-minded to see all of the awesomeness the made-for-SyFy movie had in store ... seriously, we counted 5 shark vs. man fatalities in the first 4 minutes.
In case you missed it ... the movie TOOK OVER Twitter last night ... with people begging for a sequel before the movie even ended.
Perhaps, "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof said it best ... writing, "I know it's only been 12 hours, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to talk about anything non-Sharknado-related again."
People have already begun coming up with titles for the next installment ... here's a few we've thought up:
-- Psy-Clone: It's Raining South Korean Pop Stars
-- LouNami: Lou Rawls comes back to life to wreak havoc on the South Pacific
-- Heavy Rainn: Acid rain from a cloud that looks like Rainn Wilson melts San Diego

'Swamp People' Is Cruel
... SHUT IT DOWN!!!
7/12/2012 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Lost" star Dominic Monaghan believes "Swamp People" is nothing more than "shock TV" that glorifies the senseless killing of alligators -- and it must be stopped.
Monaghan went off on Twitter moments ago about the History Channel show, writing, "If my hero Steve Irwin was around, those shows about killing alligators wouldn't be on TV. I'm gonna stop them."
Monaghan describes "Swamp People" as "death entertainment" that "continues to demonize reptiles as monsters and animals that are okay to torture and kill."
He adds, "If alligator populations need to be controlled, I understand. But the act should not be glorified on TV. Disgusting."
And according to Dominic, it's all the History Channel's fault -- "I blame the network, not the people."
So we gotta ask ...

I Never Beat Any Women
5/30/2012 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sources directly connected to Matthew Fox tell TMZ ... the actor has never beaten a woman in his life, contrary to the allegations made by his "Lost" co-star Dominic Monaghan.
As you know, Monaghan tweeted the allegation, claiming Matthew "beats women. not isolated incidents.often ..."
Our sources say Fox and Monaghan have not spoken for years, and they never had any sort of blowout argument so it's baffling to Fox as to why Dominic would go on such a rant.
A female bus driver accused Fox last year of punching her in her vagina. Fox denied the allegation and no criminal charges were filed.

... But They're Still Cursed!
3/30/2012 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Damon Lindelof is PRAYING TO JACOB that life imitates art ... 'cause the "Lost" co-creator just dropped one U.S. dollar to play the infamous "Lost Numbers" in the mega-millions lottery.
Lindelof just posted a photo of his ticket to Twitter ... featuring the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
Of course, Hurley played the numbers on the show ... and won a jackpot worth $114 million ... but the numbers turned out to be cursed ... and led to fires, arrests, plane crashes and a meteorite plowed into his chicken restaurant.
So why is Lindelof taking a chance on winning cursed millions? He tells us, "It's not safe at all. The numbers are still cursed. That being said, I'd be kicking myself for the rest of my life if they came in and I hadn't played them because I'm greedy like that."

ATTENTION ALL DISAPPOINTED "LOST" FANS -- The guy who played Locke on the show says the ending was "OK" with him ... so ... maybe it's time to finally let it go?
TMZ spoke with Terry O'Quinn in NYC yesterday -- coolest guy ever BTW -- who tells us he was totally cool with the whole "We're all kinda dead" ... despite the fact producers left a couple of things hanging ...
... like the what's up with the numbers? Why was there a 4-toed statue? How did the Polar Bear get on the island? Whatever happened with Walt ... and why was he special? Why did Kate see a horse on the island? Who built that crazy magical wheel?
We could go on for hours ... seriously ... but this video does a pretty good job of summing up all of our issues with the show.
Anyway, Terry tells us he doesn't really get a lot of flack for the way the show ended these days ... telling us, "We sorta finished it and walked away."
Sues Alleged Vagina
11/7/2011 4:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Matthew Fox is striking back -- not in the vagina, in court -- claiming the woman who accused him of punching her in her private parts is a blatant liar.
Fox is countersuing Heather Bormann, who filed her own lawsuit in September, claiming a drunken Fox tried to board a party bus she was driving in Cleveland, Ohio. Bormann alleged Fox attacked her after she ordered him to stay off the bus. That's when Bormann claims Fox struck her in the breast, arm, leg and, of course, the vagina.
Fox alleges in his countersuit ... she's just lying, and in reality he didn't provoke her but she's the one who physically attacked him.
Fox claims he's lost work because TMZ and other media outlets have reported her lawsuit, and she has subjected him to "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame."
Fox is suing for unspecified damages.

Bormann explains that she "instinctively defended herself" -- and punched him in the face and head ... but she claims she injured her hand and fingers in the process.
