Radio won't play him. He hasn't toured in support of his album. Yet neither factor stopped Josh Groban's debut record from pole-vaulting more than 100 places on Billboard magazine's latest Top 200 Album chart, quintupling its sales from the week before. How did he do it? The idiot box. A profile of the singer that aired on the magazine show 20 / 20 levitated enough Groban-enraptured couch potatoes into stores to push his self-titled platter to No. 12, the highest slot of its five-month life.

b intern Becky Quinn chimes in about what tickled her funny bone this week.  Hint, it was not the Dundler Mifflin billboard. "Community" : Troy and Abed's housewarming party turned into a weird parallel universe with dice rolling, lost body parts and death?! Yes, in the end, Jeff loses an arm, Troy loses his larynx (but is equipped with a delightfully high-pitched stoma) and PIERCE IS DEAD. Abed comes equipped with goatees so that the study group can fully commit to evil.

They call themselves Grobanites. And 60 of them recently crammed into a room at Sabatino's restaurant in Baltimore's Little Italy for dinner and a love-in. The object of their desire: Josh Groban, a pop singer with a voice that makes their hearts soar and their tears flow. Amid dishes of pasta, they swapped photos, shared stories and bonded. In this world, the person next to you -- even if she was a complete stranger 10 minutes ago -- instantly became your best friend. This cell of the Josh Groban fan club had more than just the singer in common: They were mostly white, over 45 and female.

"Who is Chip Weinman?" This cryptic question is currently posted on 20 billboards in and around the city. The answer is almost as striking as the question. Chip Weinman is a 62-year-old lobbyist and cancer survivor who has dreamed of being a professional pop crooner for more than 40 years. Though Weinman has sung the national anthem at Orioles games, he has never released an album or performed for a concert audience. That will change Saturday, when Weinman headlines at the Hippodrome Theatre with a 47-piece orchestra, six backup singers and guest star Sheena Easton.

LOS ANGELES - Let's compare two recording artists who have little in common. R&B singer Kelis has a song that's been all over the radio, "Milkshake." On the Billboard singles chart for months, it reached as high as the No. 3 spot. But meanwhile, Kelis' full-length CD, Tasty (Arista), was not doing nearly as well, slipping down the Billboard chart. Josh Groban, on the other hand, has not had a song on the singles chart. But when his latest CD of operatic pop, Closer (Reprise/Warner Brothers)

Forget about Fantasia, Ruben and Kelly. Josh Groban is the real American Idol. He's a young overnight sensation with staying power. In 2004, sales of his albums ranked behind only Usher and Toby Keith among male artists. Even though the king of "classical crossover" sings formal love songs in foreign languages and looks deeply serious behind his chocolate curls, the 24-year-old is the open-minded music fan next door, as comfortable discussing Ashlee Simpson as he is arias. Why did you move so quickly from theaters to arenas?
