Some of us ARE happy with the way our shows ended, James/Dawson/new guy/whoever you are!

Some of us ARE happy with the way our shows ended, James/Dawson/new guy/whoever you are!

Britney: We LOVE the Rolling Stone cover.  Can’t wait to read the full story.

Speidi: If the elopement wasn’t planned, how come US Weekly was there to report on the whole thing?  Fishy as always.  (Both US Weekly and Speidi!)

OTH: Last night’s episode was PHENOMENAL, but, unfortunately, it’ll have to hold us over until January.  And will it pick back up where it left off or will time have passed like in reality? Thankfully, Mark Schwahn gave one of his best interviews in a while and we’ll be analyzing it over and over again for at least the next month.

OTH Pt. 2: Was James Van Der Beek playing Dawson 5 years later or one of the shiteous directors Dawson faced when he went off to LA?  Best line: “If there’s one thing I know, it’s that audiences get crazy over who ends up together.”  You don’t say?!

Gossip Girl: Not on last night but back next week.  In the meantime, Kristin has some interesting scoop.  She says the Lily and Rufus back-story might play out on the web.  Would people actually tune in…er…log on for that?

PEOPLE: Already has a comprehensive Best of 2008 site up, where you get to share what was hot and what was not.   (Kind of reminds you of Sizzle, doesn’t it?)

Mad Men: The suits are hoping the show’s popularity will increase with a musical revue.  We don’t really see how those are related AT ALL.

24: The prequel scored higher than a lot of television shows do each week, but probably not high enough.  Oh, the irony.

Obama: Some say a new comedian will take over for Fred Armisen on SNL.  SNL insists otherwise.  But who else is there?

Box Office: With everyone’s wallet a little tighter these days, we doubt early Wednesday, pre-Thanksgiving, openings are going to help films one bit.  Sorry, Sean Penn, Nicole Kidman, Vince Vaughn and the rest of you who are hedging your bets.

BSB: Guess someone was listening (reading?) when we said the entire group should’ve reunited on TRL last week.

Chinese Democracy: Banned in China in more ways than one.

SIZZLED OUT: Nicollette Sheridan and David Spade

STILL SIZZLING: Which former boy bander just designed a public bathroom for Times Square?  Perhaps this is why he, too, was too busy to join his former bandmates at the TRL finale.

Hey baby! Rock steady!

24: Friendly reminder that the 2-hour prequel airs tonight on Fox.

Lost: TV Guide says there’s a subliminal message in the trailer for the upcoming season.  Anyone figure out what it means?

Michelle Williams: In an interview with Newsweek, the actress says how she struggled–and still does–in the months since Heath’s death.  The article is heartbreaking.

Josh Schwartz: Says he hopes Gossip Girl will be in its 22nd season in 20 years, then says he’s kidding.  Somehow, we don’t think he is.

SAG: An actor’s strike is looming.  There will be tears.

No Doubt: After a baby-making and solo-project filled hiatus, the band is getting back together for a summer tour.  Hella good!

Twilight: Having such a great opening weekend, the next installment just got the green light.  We’re pretty sure we won’t see that one, either.

Gawker: A fun look at the celebrity couples that “boggle the mind and tug at the heart.”

Seinfeld: The show lives!

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Wintour (Vogue)

STILL SIZZLING: Which celebrity had this to say about her upcoming film: “I wish it was ‘She’s Just Not That Into You’! Unfortunately, it’s ‘He’s Just Not That Into You.’ The other would be more empowering.”  Considering her love life lately, this attitude comes as no surprise.

A Top Model winner that doesn't actually want to be a model?

Travis Barker: Suing for damages suffered due to the plane crash.  Can’t say we blame him.

Usher: Baby number two is on the way.  Will he name this one Usher, too?

24: Some have speculated that the show helped Obama get elected by featuring its own black president.  Kiefer says it’s all just a bunch of hooey.

PEOPLE: This is pretty, um, sexy.  A video of 100 “sexy men” in one minute.

PEOPLE Pt. 2: Released an (internal) response to the NYT’s scathing article about their journalistic practices.  As someone with pretty good knowledge of the mag’s inner-workings, we can honestly say they’re not being given enough credit.  The suggestion that they have anything but the highest ethical standards of all the entertainment/celebrity mags is just ridiculous. And until someone is actually on the inside, they should just be quiet and stop making assumptions.  End rant. (Though, one has to wonder if they didn’t shell out obscene amounts of money for exclusive photos, maybe the layoffs wouldn’t have been necessary!)

The Sopranos: Ending leave you unsatisfied?  A Duke University professor is taking it up in a new study.

The Tyra Banks Show: Moving to the CW to help solidfy their network as a “brand destination” for women.  Or something like that.

McKey: She may have won ANTM but she still plans on going to med school.  So she went through the competition with no intention of making a lasting modeling career?  Didn’t she just take the prize away, then, from someone else who would make better use of it?

Reese Witherspoon: Thinks her kids have “been treated terribly” by the paparazzi, not having any privacy, etc.  Reese, isn’t that your own fault for choosing a Hollywood life?

SIZZLED OUT: Prince William

STILL SIZZLING: This notoriously hard-assed magazine editor brushed off questions of her rumored retirement with these lovely responses: “I think that’s an extremely rude question. Leave me alone.” and “Just go away.”  Charming, as always.

Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Paris Hilton: At first “sources” were saying that she and Benji Madden are no longer together but we weren’t sure whether to believe it.  They made huge declarations of their love as recently as last month.  Turns out, the Associated Press got official confirmation from Hilton’s publicist.  You win some, you lose some…

Miley Cyrus: Wants to be on a reality television show beacause they’re “crazy” and it would be cool “to be in a really nice house with cameras following me around.”  Lucky for her, MTV is casting for season 22 of The Real World.  Be careful what you wish for, Miley!

Rob Lowe: Chinese delegates, in California to discuss global warming with the governator, got the pleasure of witnessing Lowe film a scene for Brothers & Sisters.  Lowe even got them directors’ chairs and headsets.  What an inefficient use of time!

Gawker: Categorizes the 4 different ways magazines have been killed lately.  Funny and sad at the same time.

OK! Magazine: They’re practically the only mag out there hiring.  Too bad we don’t want to work for them!  (Yes, we know one day we will regret saying that!)

Jossip: The aforementioned regret has already begun.  Internships at some pretty desirable mags are now for sale, as in YOU PAY TO DO THEM.  This truly is a “New America.” One in which we stay in bed under the covers all day.

Soap Opera Digest: You know times are bad when a publication starts asking for “volunteer writers.”   At least they’re not auctioning the spots off to the highest bidder!

24: The two-hour telepic, airing Sunday, is a “dry-run” for a full-length feature in theaters.  Ratings and DVD sales will be the deciding factors.

Blink-182: Mark Hoppus admits to talking a lot lately with former bandmates Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge.  The best news: a music reunion, though not yet discussed, isn’t totally out of the question!

Beauty & the Geek: May have a second life on MTV, with D-list celebs participating as the beauties.  Hard to believe Ashton Kutcher is involved with this crap.

AR2: What if there was a second American Revolution?  That question is the subject of a new series in the works at FX.  The “incendiary” plot will revolve around college students who stage a revolt and try to re-define the meaning of patriotism.

Judd Apatow: His next movie won’t be out til next summer at the earliest and it’s already getting press play.  We’re not surprised considering, a, his track record and, b, the stars lined up (Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Schwartzman and wife Leslie Mann).

SIZZLED OUT: Josh Schwartz

STILL SIZZLING: This actress spent an hour in the hospital after getting sick on a plane.  Realizing the best days of our career were behind us would make us sick, too.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story!

Obama: If you name it, they will buy.  Assuming you = Obama.  After he referenced a book about FDR during his 60 Minutes interview, bookstores and buyers are scrambling to find out which book exactly it was.

Obama Pt. 2: Does the First Lady’s body type make you wanna stand up and cheer?  This writer does, giving praise to Michelle’s derriere.

Newsstands: Speaking of butts, should they (as featured on raunchy mags) be prominently displayed on newsstands next to other more “respectable” publications?  What ever happened to the First Amendment?

Theme Songs: How much do they really matter?  Apparently enough to warrant a top-40 countdown.

TiVo: It’s the gift that keeps on giving!  Soon you’ll be able to use it to order pizza!

Kiefer Sutherland: One of the 24 star’s complaints about jail: no smoking.  Oh, the horror!

Lipstick Jungle: We thought it was canceled.  Brooke Shields says no.  Fans send lipstick to network.  In sum: totally bizaarre.

Fox News: They’ve set up a Facebook page.  Totally uncool.

Rihanna: Had 8 singles from on album on the Billboard charts!  Ri-dic!

GQ: Why have a man of the year when you can have MEN of the year?  Leo, Phelps, Obama, and Mad Men’s John Hamm.  Not too shabby.

Mickey Mouse: We’re not sure if this makes us feel young or old.  Mickey turned 80 today!

Seth Rogen: He really likes making pornos.  Zack and Miri was just the tip of the iceberg.  Rogen is working on a new show for Showtime about…making pornos.  Classy, as always.

Dan Lyons: The Newsweek writer is having a hissy fit over the resignation of Yahoo’s CEO.  Apparently Lyons, in an interview just last month, was told that wouldn’t be happening.  It’s called spin, Lyons.  You of all people should know about it.

Robert Murdoch: Ouch!  The media titan is blaming the industry’s decline not on the economy but the suckiness of editors and writers.

Natalee Holloway: The case has been reopened.  Maybe we’ll actually get answers–and closure for the family–this time around.

With a body like that, no wonder he was marathon-ready!

With a body like that, no wonder he was marathon-ready!

SNL: Their HSM and The View spoofs were pretty funny.  John McCain–not so much.

FNCU: We thought this was a joke.  It’s not.  You can apply to Fox News Channel University.  Don’t get too alarmed, though–it’s just an internship program.

Ryan Reynolds: Completed the New York City Marathon on behalf of “those who can’t,” namely sufferers of Parkinson’s Disease, something very near and dear to our hearts.

Nelly: Finally admitting to a years-long relationship with Ashanti.  The key to their relationship?  Having fun.  Ha!  If only it were that easy!

November Sweeps: It’s just about here!  Things to look forward to: Oprah on 30 Rock, Rosie’s variety show, the 24 movie and much more!  Woot woot!

The CW: Since the network seems fixated on remakes these days, some are calling for a Saved By The Bell spin-off.  We wouldn’t complain.  Or would we?

Def Jam: The executive vice president was found dead Saturday in an apparent suicide.  The exec, Jay-Z’s successor, was responsible for artists like Beyonce, Ciara and Young Jeezy throughout his career in the music business.  We’ve been saying it a lot lately and we’ll say it once more: too much death.

SIZZLED OUT: Simon Cowell

STILL SIZZLING: Which political pundit, spoofed on SNL this weekend, decided to crash the rehearsal just to see how Ben Affleck would depict him?
