Heath Ledger: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the film Ledger was making when he died, premiered at Cannes last week. Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t have a US release date. Still hard to believe we’re never getting more Ledger.
Susan Boyle: Her 15 minutes of fame got extended last night when she passed the semi-final round of Britain’s Got Talent. She’ll compete in the finals next week.
CBS: Won the ratings game overall this season by averaging the most viewers. Sad fact remains that viewership is down and will probably only go further south.
Gawker: Predicting the songs we’ll hear again and again this summer. Major flaw: including “No Boundaries” by American Idol’s new champ Kris Allen. Really don’t see that taking off.
Memorial Day: It means reflection, barbecues and TV marathons depending on who you are. Among the marathon options: Jon & Kate Plus Eight, Golden Girls, Intervention and ANTM.
SIZZLED OUT: Mickey Mouse
STILL SIZZLING: This relatively new celebrity participated in a charity auction, where he offered kisses for $20,000 each. Last we heard, he only liked the kind that drew blood.
