The family that works together, stays together?

The family that works together, stays together?

EW: Rumors about it going on-line only are false, says the mag.  That makes us happy, even if we knock them every now and again.

The Dark Knight: If the DVD is flying off the shelves, why would anyone go to see it again in theaters?

Full House: Last week we heard about a remake and now it’s not happening.  Consider us  bummed.

Gossip Girl: And don’t be fooled.  This spin-off isn’t happening, either!

Twilight: New director will likely be Chris Weitz.  His previous credits include American Pie.  Just sceams family-friendly, doesn’t it?  On the flipside, he was once nominated for an Oscar.  Screams talent?  You decide.

Harry Potter: If you love the books/films so much, you might want to book a trip to Chicago.  The Museum of Science and Industry there will have a HP exhibit through September.

Will Ferrell: And if you can’t make it to New York, too, to see his show “You’re Welcome, America.  A Final Night with George W. Bush,” stay tuned to HBO which will do a live telecast in the somewhat near future.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Mixing business with pleasure, she and babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard (what’s with the double As?) will star together in an off-Broadway show.  Let’s hope this doesn’t mean doom for the couple, for the kid’s sake at least.

YouTube: 40 inspirational speeches, all cut from movies, in 2 minutes.  Awesome.

Gawker: Unveiled a redesign late yesterday.  It’s okay.  We’re not big fans of change, though.

Cosmetic Surgery: Do you feel like women’s mags are endorsing it?  We’ve never really thought about it, so guess that’s a no for us.

McDonald’s: Trying to start an ad war with Starbucks and we kind of like it.

KB Toys: Going out of business.  So that means Toys R Us is all that’s left, right?  Good thing that was our favorite!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: We love this whimsical writer but people seem to be bagging on him lately.  (Hint: You can use the last name to make play on the word shadenfreude!)

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!
