Entertainment buzz: Facebook's top 10 moments of the week

This week saw some exciting premieres and a couple of finales.

TV viewers saw the season finales of both "The Bachelor" and "True Detective." The ABC reality series had some people wondering how Juan Pablo Galavis really feels about his pick, Nikki Ferrrell, while the hit HBO series has become so popular it managed to crash HBO GO.

Chuck Norris, meanwhile, turned 74, and stars remembered Notorious B.I.G. 17 years after his death.

Facebook has tallied the top 10 buzziest stories in entertainment this week, and all of those topics made the most-talked-about list. What had you buzzing? What did you miss?

1. Univision's "Nuestra Belleza Latina" beauty pageant and reality show premieres

3. Fox debuts reboot of "Cosmos," starring astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson

"Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," hosted by astrophysicist host Neil deGrasse Tyson, premiered on Fox and the National Geographic Channel on Sunday, attracting more than 8 million TV viewers. The 13-part science documentary series, which finds Tyson touring the universe in a CGI spaceship, arrives more than 30 years after Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" debuted on PBS.

"There's gotta be at least one 'Cosmos' a generation, otherwise we're not doing justice to sharing with the public the role of science and bringing the universe down to Earth," Tyson told Space.com in an interview.

4. ABC's "The Bachelor" season finale and controversy over Juan Pablo Galavis' exit

Juan Pablo Galavis may have given away a rose in Monday's season finale of "The Bachelor," but he didn't take the plunge -- the former soccer star didn't propose to Nikki Ferrell while they were in St. Lucia.

The "After the Final Rose" special caused a bit of a stir after Galavis avoided saying that those little three words. He also explained to People, "You go on ['The Bachelor'] thinking if there is the connection, you propose. But I don't feel there's a need to propose to somebody if I don't feel 100 percent. I didn't know Nikki. I want to know more, a lot more."

In the wake of the criticism, Galavis took to Facebook, too:



5. SXSW 2014 festival held in Austin

The 2014 South By Southwest festival got under way last weekend in Austin, Texas. The 2014 bash saw the premiere of plenty of films, including "Veronica Mars," and has been featuring countless performances, including a surprise appearance by Justin Bieber.


Even Bill Cosby showed up:



6. "True Detective" season finale on HBO

"True Detective" has become so popular that it caused some technical issues on HBO GO's streaming platform Sunday night. The season 1 finale of the hit show aired Sunday, but not everyone was able to watch.

HBO GO apologized for the technical problems, blaming the series' "overwhelming popularity."



7. The premiere of "Resurrection" on ABC

TV fans tuned in to the premiere of "Resurrection" Sunday night on ABC, the new drama starring Frances Fisher, Samaire Armstrong and Landon Gimenez. The series chronicles how the lives of the people of Arcadia, Mo., are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return.

An estimated 13.9 million viewers watched, making "Resurrection" the No. 2 drama premiere this season.




8. "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" big at box office

It didn't hit No.1 (that went to "300: Rise of an Empire" ), but 20th Century Fox's animated "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" performed well at the box office and had people buzzing on Facebook after opening in second with $32.5 million.

In the film, "Modern Family" cast member Ty Burrell voices Mr. Peabody, who journeys through the past with Sherman (Max Charles) in their WABAC time machine. The new 3D adventure is inspired by the 1950s and '60s cartoon series "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show."

9. Rapper Biggie Smalls (aka Notorious B.I.G.) remembered 17 years after his death

Celebrities and fans alike remembered rapper Notorious B.I.G this week as March 9 marked 17 years after his death. The man behind "Mo Money Mo Problems" and "Hypnotize" was killed by an unknown assailant in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.

See how some stars remembered the influential artist on Facebook:





10. Actor and martial artist Chuck Norris turns 74

It's not an overestimation to say that fans love (or are obsessed) with actor Chuck Norris. He turned 74 on March 10, which had a lot of people buzzing over the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger" and many an action film.

Norris appreciated the well wishes:
