Fey on last night's Red Carpet

Fey on last night's Red Carpet

30 Rock: Yes!  Finally found Tracy Morgan and Tina Fey‘s entire acceptance speech from the Golden Globes.  Listen and laugh.  You know you want to!

Tom Brady: After fending off rumors last week that he proposed to girlfriend Gisele Bunden comes confirmation that they really are engaged–only it just happened this weekend.

NFL: The playoff ratings were better than 24 AND the Globes.  What does that tell you?

TV.com: Trying to catch up to Hulu and other competition with new deals with Sony, MGM, et al. It’s a great resource (episode guides, etc.) but not the first place we think of for video viewing.

Evolution of Dance: We were really looking forward to the second one but it was kind of disappointing.

Any Winehouse: It’s the divorce no one will be unhappy about.  “Blake incarcerated” is seeking to end his marriage to the mess of a singer.

NYT: Asking (and sort of answering) the question we all have–“Why can’t the most powerful person in the world keep his BlackBerry?”

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

Obama: Is it offensive to rewrite The Jefferson’s theme song with the new first family in mind? An elementary school principal in Tennessee is taking a lot of heat for doing just that. To be fair, the song is pretty catchy.

Obama Pt. 2: Inauguration plans are already underway. Not known yet is which music superstars will get to perform but E!Online is already rounding up the troops. (No, not those troops.)

NBC: Developing a new show called Making Friends With Black People. Yeah, cause that isn’t offensive at all.

Lipstick Jungle: Brooke Shields wasn’t lying! NBC either never canceled the show at all or, at the very least, is giving it another chance. Take two, everyone!

Jennifer Aniston: The chica just can’t catch a break. The latest: Alec Baldwin called kissing her on 30 Rock “painful.” Aw, leave the poor girl alone! Losing Brad was bad enough.

South Park: The show isn’t ending til 2011 but we already know the format: another full-length movie. Lucky us. Or not.

Dreamgirls: Embarking on a tour sans the famous names that made it such a success.  Broadway could be next.

Forbes: Okay, they’ve officially taken their most influential lists too far. Most Influential (celebrity) Infants is just so not necessary. But, for the record, the adorable Shiloh Jolie-Pitt took the top spot.

The Roots: They’ll be the house band when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Late Show. Guess that’s more interesting than a band plucked from nowhere.

Miley Cyrus: Says she can’t predict the future (no, really??) but wants Hannah Montana to continue “as long as it can.” How much is Disney paying her to say that?

Cars 2: It’s coming but, sadly, without the late Paul Newman. We’ll see Doc Hudson again, though the creators still haven’t figured out how.

Meh: It’s one of our favorite go-to words and now it’s officially in the dictionary. And, by the way, you can thank The Simpsons for that. Or just, you know, go meh.

Fall TV: If by some chance you actually liked one of the canceled shows, this handy list suggests alternatives that don’t actually suck.

Arianna Huffington: The blogger extraordinaire promises to raise funds to keep investigative journalism alive and well. Entertainment journalism never gets any love.

Facebook: How far is too far? In a new interview (conducted over instant message!), Mark Zuckerberg says he dreams of a day where the social networking site is even more personal than it currently is. We thought that already happened. It’s called The Patriot Act.

Variety: Is it really Oscar season if there’s no campaigning? What, you didn’t know the studios actually shell out tons of cash for ads to sway the Academy’s votes? They do. (Just like real politics!) But not anymore. Dun dun dunnnnnnnnn.

Journalism: So there’s no future in magazines. And now the blogging future is looking bleak, too. Good thing we gave up yesterday.

SIZZLED OUT: Mark Cuban

STILL SIZZLING: Riding the wave of superhero flicks, X-Men: First Class will be written by this wunderkind who is best known to teen girls.

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?

Does the show need to save itself?

Does the show need to save itself?

Jennifer Hudson: The actress/singer, who we wrote about earlier this week, has lost both her mother and brother today in a double homicide.  Her nephew is still missing and the suspect, supposedly the boy’s father, is in custody.  More details will be released tomorrow.  Beyond tragic.

Marc Anthony: Says his life with J. Lo is “designed around the twins.”  Isn’t that what it’s supposed to be when you have kids?!  And, Mark, you should know that by now considering you also have kids with your ex-wife!

Heroes: Critics are calling each other out on being too hard (or soft) on the show.  With such a stellar reputation, is it fair to say the show’s gone downhill?  Every show does reach its peak eventually…

World Series: Well, some people are watching this year’s lackluster match-up.  (Yankees, we miss you!)  Despite horrible ratings predictions, the game beat all other programming on Wednesday night.  Still, it was down 15 percent from last year, so the possibility of this being the lowest-rated series of all time is still there.  Sigh.

Tim McGraw: One nice thing about this year’s World Series is that it lets McGraw honor his father, Tug, who won the first and only series for the Phillies in 1980.

Vanessa Hudgens: Says BF/co-star Zac Efron is “a good kisser.”  What we’ve all been dying to know or TMI?

Obama: Endorsed by another former member of Bush’s administration: Scott McCellan.  Hardly surprising since the ex-press secretary published a tell-all earlier this year about the White House’s deception under George W.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Humorists rejoice!  The show will be back…in 2009.  Happy waiting!

Palin: Want a high-paying job?  Just sign up to be Palin’s traveling make-up artist.  For two weeks, she was the highest paid staffer of the whole campaign!

30 Rock: Things to look forward to when the show returns this Thursday: cameos from Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Martin, Megan Mullally and the list goes on.  Maybe we should start watching.
