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.

Look familiar?  You just saw it reimagined (aka poorly copied) on last night's OTH!

Look familiar? You just saw it reimagined (aka poorly copied) on last night's OTH.

Gossip Girl: Last night’s ep was the second with Wallace Shawn, known to most of us as the teacher from Clueless.  He seems out of place, but then again, that is precisely the point.

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: Nate turned his father in to the Feds.  How original.  Oh wait.  Dawson’s Creek did that back in 19-freakin-99!

One Tree Hill: Speaking of biting off of a original (and arguably better) teen drama, did Chad Michael Murray seriously pen a scene that was a direct copy of Toni’s death in Dylan’s arms (in the rain, no less!) on 90210?  And that was from 1996, people!  We don’t care what they say: imitation is NOT the sincerest form of flattery!

Obama: Gave 60 Minutes its best ratings in 9 years.  So when will the attraction begin to fade?

Obama Pt. 2: Newsweek is predicting a baby boom directly tied to Obama’s win.  Everyone gettin’ busy on election night?  Stranger things have happened.

Stephen Colbert: You know you’re big when D.C.’s elite gets together to roast you.  Will Obama be next?

TRL: This pays better tribute to the finale than we ever could.

TV Guide: Also making staff cuts.  We. Give. Up.

Scarlett Johansson: Apparently she was Katy Perry’s inspiration for I Kissed a Girl.  Are we the only ones that don’t find her (or her lips) attractive??

Viewer Habits: Unhappy?  Likely you watch more TV.  No shame in that!

Rosie O’Donnell: Her variety show is fast approaching and we’re totally psyched!

House: Will Thirteen die?  That’s what E!Online is suggesting…

Heather Locklear: Officially charged with DUI–a misdemeanor.  No word yet on the possible reprecussions if found guilty.

Cloris Leachman: We told you that an 82-year-old on DWTS wasn’t a good thing!  The former contestant was in the hospital recently for a “bad cold.”  Is that what they’re calling it these days?

SIZZLED OUT: Ashlee Simpson

STILL SIZZLING: This tough guy is accused of pulling a  Martha!  Or so the government says.  The former DWTS contestant–and current owner of the Dallas Mavericks–has been charged with insider trading.  He plans to let justice “do its job,” whatever that means.
