And another one bites the dust...

And another one bites the dust...

PEOPLE: Another predictable cover: Barack Obama on Inaguration night.  At least it’s not as flashy as the other O covers out there.

Oscars: After shutting out The Dark Knight from all but one category, the Chicago Tribune wonders if the award show’s ratings will suffer.  Is there really any use in speculating, though?  We’ll find out soon enough!  (In one month, to be exact!)

NBC: As ratings continue to dive, the Peacock network is looking to reband itself (think: Must See TV).  We’ve got no ideas.  How ’bout you?

Obama: Television ratings estimates of the inaguration could be way off, says The Washington Post, since Nielsen doesn’t take into account all the people watching on the web, in school or at the office.  So, in reality, this probably was the most-watched program in history!

Obama, Pt. 2: Apparently the White House isn’t too up-to-date on the technology front.  How is that even possible?  Or acceptable?!

Sex and the City: Now that the sequel is supposedly a “go” (once again!), everyone’s wondering which of the supporting cast will be back.  Evan Handler (Charlotte’s hubby) says he hasn’t been approached yet and jokes (at least we think he’s joking!) that they could kill him off!

Katy Perry: Says give her celibacy or give her death.  Think she got the quote confused?

Backstreet Boys: Did you know Brian Littrell’s son suffers from Kawasaki disease, the same thing that afflicted Jett Travolta? And we never even heard of it before this month!

TEEN: So first they stopped home subscriptions (several years ago) and now the magazine is folding altogether.  Seventeen, you really are queen!

SIZZLED OUT: Michael Cera (Arrested Development)

STILL SIZZLING: This ailing-actor is planning a memoir on his film career and “life journey.”

Does she look flustered to you?

American Idol: Did you hate last night’s season premiere?  Or that it even premiered at all?  AdAge feels your pain.

Arrested Development: It’s once again unclear whether the series will be made into a movie.  So sick of this back and forth!

Taylor Swift: It’s a frequent question in Hollywood–she can sing but can she act?  Swift will have a chance to prove she’s a double-threat when she guest-stars on CSI.

Bush: Why must he continue to torture us and schedule a farewell speech during primetime? Hasn’t he interrupted enough  TV programming already?

Britney: Her Twitter account was one of the unfortunate celeb ones hacked earlier this month and now someone on her staff may be paying the price.

Kate Winslet: Did you catch her Golden Globes acceptance speeches?  We thought they were endearing and adorable.  Her fellow Brits disagree…strongly.

Vannessa Hudgens: That Twilight report is now being denied.  Good!

Katy Perry: Peeved at PEOPLE and other mags for (allegedly) taking some remarks out of context.  Writes Perry on her blog: “When I wanna share something with the world, the world will know… otherwise, stop looking for a story, or an explanation.”

Ray Romano: Will star in a new TNT “dramedy” about guys going through a mid-life crisis.  Hmmm.  Wonder if this show is autobiographical, too…

Glenn Close: The latest celeb to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  And the best part?  We’ll be going there Friday!

Lil’ Wayne: The first story we’ve seen on who’s performing at the Grammys in February.  Can’t say we’re thrilled.

SIZZLED OUT: Wheel of Fortune

STILL SIZZLING: How will Sizzlemaker do on Wheel of Fortune?  Come back late tomorrow for a recap of the taping.  (Though this doesn’t make us feel too good.)

Carnegie Hall-worthy!  Who woulda thunk it?!

Carnegie Hall-worthy! Who woulda thunk it?!

DWTS: Brooke Burke and Derek Hough were declared the winners last night.  We’re cool with that, though we also would’ve been happy if Lance won.

DWTS Pt. 2: Does life change after you’ve won the trophy?  Hardly.

Gossip Girl: Josh Schwartz has squashed yesterday’s news of a Lily and Rufus flashback show.  What he’s planning instead: webisodes all about Blair’s maid, Dorota.

Carson Daly: The TV host, known for getting stars to spill, has been keeping a secret of his own: he’s gonna be a dad!  Jennifer Love Hewitt and Tara Reid, you better get busy!

SAG: The actors’ strike is more likely to happen when you got big names like Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep supporting it.  Thanks a lot, guys.

NBC: Among the winter schedule changes: two SNL specials, more reality shows and a TV movie.  We doubt ratings will improve.

Family Guy: Seth Green (who voices Chris) and Carnegie Hall kinda seem like a mismatch, but we guess you gotta give the people what they want.  And what they want is a live reading of Family Guy scripts.  Go figure.

Reality TV: Here’s another reason to hate it: people are actually being diagnosed with Truman Syndrome, a type of paranoia where they (incorrectly) think their life is being documented by cameras.  If it wasn’t so sad, we’d probably laugh.

Thanksgiving: Forget the turkey.  All you need is a TV!  There’ll be marathons of faves like I Love Lucy, House, Fresh Prince, Arrested Development and lots more ALL WEEKEND!

90210: One of those aforementioned marathons will be on SOAPNet, with focusing on Kelly’s love life (creatively titled Kelly’s Leftovers).  Doesn’t get much better than that.  But it does get worse: we won’t have access to SOAPNet that day! Tragic.

MTV: Will have its own Inaugural Ball in D.C.  No worries if you can’t go;  they’ll also broadcast it on MTV’s 894328297312 channels.

SIZZLED OUT: Joey Fatone (NSYNC)

STILL SIZZLING: This tear drop-tattooed artist made the best album of the year, or so says Blender.

Crazy?

Crazy? Quite possibly.

Sarah Palin: Wishes she did more interviews during the campaign.  Yeah, ’cause that would’ve changed the results!

NYT: Does the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print practice censorship?  One writer thinks so.  The word in question?  Bitchassness.

NYT Pt 2.: And what happens when the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print is spoofed?  Unsuspecting New Yorkers are scammed, as happened yesterday when a fake–albeit very convincing–issue was handed out.

The Dark Knight: Holy Batman!  A city with the same name as the caped crusader is suing filmmaker Christopher Nolan for royalties.  Does Gotham have a new joker on its hands?

InDecision 2008: Seems not everyone was happy with Comedy Central’s election coverage.  Or so says the whiny chick who got screwed out of being in the audience.

Arrested Development: There’s been a lot of he-said, she-said regarding the possibility of a movie adaptation.  And now cast member Jeffrey Tambor has taken things further: he says the film is a go!

Kanye West: Somebody get this guy some help!  He told reporters that he’s an “alien,” that he blames himself for mother’s death and that “it’s lonely at the top.”  We’d say something clever if we weren’t so baffled.

CMA Awards: Kenny Chesney = Entertainer of the Year, Carrie Underwood = Best Female Vocalist, Shania Twain = first appearance post-split from her cheating husband.  Is it just us or do you think country music after-parties are probably a lot of fun?

B.J. Novak: The Office actor is going on sabbatical, leave or whatever it is they call it in the working world.  In actuality, he’s just making a movie and will presumably return to the show at a later, yet to be determined, date.

SIZZLED OUT: Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

STILL SIZZLING: This daytime show, nearing its 21st season, is asking viewers to compose its new theme song.  The winner will receive $100,000 in addition to other prizes.
