At least he LOOKS funny!

At least he LOOKS funny!

Natasha Richardson: In critical condition after a skiing accident.  Our favorite Natasha movie: The Parent Trap!  (Yes, the one with Lindsay Lohan.  Don’t judge!)

Obama: Going on The Tonight Show Thursday for the first time since he became president.  Good way to reach the masses or not the place for a head-of-state?

Zac Efron: Took some VERY scandalous photos for Interview Magazine.  What did Vanessa have to say about this?!

DJ AM: Seeking $20 million in damages for injuries, physical and otherwise, in the September plane crash with Travis Barker. Can’t say we blame him but throwing money at a problem doesn’t exactly fix it.

Don Imus: The controversial but very successful radio talk show host announced yesterday that he has prostate cancer.  Ironically, he’s spent a great deal of his life working with cancer patients, especially children.

Fall Out Boy: Bringing 50 Cent on tour with them.  Something tells us they don’t quite appeal to exactly the same audience…

MTV: Tapped Andy Samberg to host May’s movie awards.  Not necessarily a bad choice but we never really found his style of funny, well, funny.

SIZZLED OUT: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

STILL SIZZLING: This niche channel is changing its name–ever so slightly–in hopes that’ll become “less geeky.”  Yeah, good luck with that!

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

90210: Still in “talks” with Tori Spelling.  We don’t even care anymore.

Jennifer Aniston: We love when she talks about Brangelina!  Here’s a new gem: “‘The funny thing is, people don’t realize we all go away to The Hamptons on the weekends,” jokes Aniston. “That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox…'” Great sense of humor!

Golden Globes: Nominations are out.  Oscar noms still to come.  What’s the difference?  Not much.

50 Cent: “Addicted” to success, he says.  And if there were a rehab for it, he’d go.  Somehow we doubt that.

James Frey: Interned for Gawker yesterday.  Doesn’t get much more random than that.

SAG: The strike could come as soon as January!  The 120,000 members will receive authorization ballots in the mail.

NPR: Cutting seven percent of its staff.  We should probably just change careers now.

TV Squad: Believes eliminating piracy–aka allowing “illegal” downloads–could save the industry.  Interesting logic.

Jay Leno: His primetime deal could usher in an era of even more less-scripted TV.  After all, now NBC will have more hours of talk shows than any other kind.

NBA: You can watch basketball in 3-D on Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a date.  Or maybe, even if you do.

Barney: The “I Love You, You Love Me Song” is being used to torture prisoners in Guantanamo.  We couldn’t make this shit up if we tried!

SIZZLED OUT: DMX

STILL SIZZLING: This actor says, in 8 years, he wants to have a film on Barack Obama ready–with him as the star!

I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

I'm man enough to admit this: I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

The CW: We guess they’re going for a guest star bonanza: last night, Cyndi Lauper popped up on Gossip Girl and tonight’s Privileged promises an appearance from Perez  Hilton.

Speidi: How I Met Your Mother officially jumped the shark.  Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are guest-starring.  Like these two need any more television exposure!

Lost: Can a very complicated show become simpler thanks to musical recaps?  You decide.

50 Cent: Namedrops…blogs?  Yep.  Perez, Gawker and more.  At least he has fairly decent taste.

Keith Olbermann: Can you cover an election and not actually vote?  Yes, says Mr. MSNBC.

PEOPLE: The staff cuts have begun.  There goes our future. We feel like crying.

SIZZLED OUT: Ben Still and Chris Rock

STILL SIZZLING: The set of this investigative series went ablaze last week.  No injuries, thankfully, and maybe they’ll get a new plotline out of it!

Only one of these is having a baby.

Only one of these is having a baby.

Taylor Momsen: The youngest Gossip Girl is in the hospital with a throat infection!  It’s life-threatening, doctors say, but they also predict she’ll be fine.  Which is it?!

Alyson Hannigan: She’s preggers!  And no, Jim is not the father.

DWTS: Bye, bye Toni Braxton.  Probably for the best with that heart problem and all.

Friday Night Lights: Wondering where it is?  Only on DirectTV.  What a scam.

Roseanne: It’s been 20 years since the show’s debut.  We feel old.

Julianne Hough: After doing what we now know was a superb acting job on live TV last night, the 20-year-old was taken to the hospital.  Today she says she’s “ok.”  The culprit?  A stomachache.  Can’t she just suck it up like the rest of us?

ABC: A memo went out to all show execs: wardrobe spending will be limited here on out.  Cheap?  Or efficient?

Privileged: That other show on the CW.  Has flown under the radar because it’s not Gossip Girl-esque.  Says its creator (Rina Mimoun of our eternal favorite Everwood), that was precisely the point.

50 Cent: Granted once-a-month visitation with his son.  And he’s happy about that–but is the kid? Man, we’d want to see our dad (a famous one, no less) a lot more than that!
