SNL: Why are people so surprised by the return of Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton? Aside from the fact that Poehler recently had a baby, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of Clinton on the show since she accepted the media-heavy position of Secretary of State.
Twilight: The film franchise has hit its first stumbling block: Catherine Hardwicke and Summit have parted ways. Hardwicke will not direct the sequel, and the reason allegedly goes deeper than a simple schedule conflict.
Kanye West: NOT on Twitter!
David Gregory: The worst kept secret of late is a secret no more. NBC officially announced Gregory as the new host of Meet the Press.
Obama: Said on the aforementioned show he won’t be smoking in the White House. So will that be the first promise he breaks?
Tribune Company: Bankruptcy is on the horizon. You know what follows? More lay offs. Blek.
Barbra Streisand: Forced to share face time with arch enemy President Bush as she was honored by the Kennedy Center. Thankfully, no blood was shed.
Facebook: Beware of the Koobface virus!
PEOPLE: Redemption! The New York Times public editor is criticizing the piece the paper ran last month bashing PEOPLE. Turns out the NYT got some facts wrong! Will a retraction follow? We sure hope so.
NYT: Not sure we should trust them anymore (see above) but they’ve just released their list of the 10 best books of 2008. We’ve read approximately none of them.
Roger Ebert: Has “had it” with years of top 10 lists. So what did he do instead? Made a top 20 list.
SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry
STILL SIZZLING: We’re turning the tables on you. What juicy riddle do you have? We’ll print the best one tomorrow!
