The family that tweets together, stays together!

The family that tweets together, stays together!

Digital TV: Damn that House.  The congressional one, that is.  Though the Senate approved a delay in the mandatory switch to digital TVs, the House did not.  So if you’re still using analogs, you will be completely screwed in less than 3 weeks.  Don’t you just love the government?

Kelly Clarkson: Move over, Britney.  Clarkson just broke your Billboard record for largest jump–a whopping 98 spots thanks to the sudden popularity of her song My Life Would Suck Without You.  Perhaps Brit Brit’s would be better with Clarkson??

Jay Leno: Oprah should move over, too.  A new survey shows that Jay Leno reigns supreme among TV personalities.  I would’ve been inclined to say women don’t care for Leno, but then men generally don’t care for O.  So maybe they’re even?

NBC: Among their planned pilots is Day One, about a post-apocalyptic Earth.  It’s one thing to see that in a two-hour movie.  But a whole series?  Watching that week after week would probably freak us out.

Ashton Kutcher: On Twitter and apparently got wife Demi Moore to join.  Will Rumer be next?

Kelly Rowland: The former Destiny’s Child member fired her longtime manager–who just so happens to be Beyonce’s dad.  Supposedly the split was “amicable” but there’s gotta be more to it, right?!

Prison Break: Life is imitating art in Michigan.  A man purposely robbed a gas station and mini-mart in hopes of joining his brother in jail.  That’s one more thing to weigh on your conscience, Michael Scofield!

Blagojevich: Has “won” according to Gawker simply because his media tour showed he was a “harmless lovable nut.”  However, Dan Abrams over at The Daily Beast says he’s a “PR catastrophe.”

SIZZLED OUT: The First Wives Club

STILL SIZZLING: This TV chef is planning a huge party for SXSW, complete with the resiquite indie bands.  Maybe she deserves some cool points after all!

jh

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.)

Are they or aren't they?!

Are they or aren't they?!

Britney: Celebrated the New Year by attending her brother Bryan’s “secret” wedding.  Interesting that he got married just months after being named one of PEOPLE’s hottest bachelors!

Pink: What is the deal with ex-husband Carey Hart?  No longer married but still “love” each other–and last night, he introduced her on stage.  What a strange relationship!

Taylor Swift: Forced to share a stage with ex-BF Joe Jonas as the ball dropped.  Is it fair to assume those two did not share a New Year’s greeting?

Twitter: Getting (unwanted?) press attention after it came out Israel is using the social media site to keep people updated on the Gaza conflict.

Oprah: Remember those cute kids who changed T.I.’s Whatever You Like into an election song?  O just gave their school a check for more than $300,000.

Nikki Blonsky: No longer facing charges for an airport altercation with one of the ANTM contestants.  Her dad could still get up to 5 years in jail.

Gawker: The media company sold or is in the process of selling two of their sites: Consumerist and Defamer.  Even the on-line world isn’t immune to the economy’s woes!

Viacom: If you want your MTV, you can have it!  The company reached a deal with Time Warner Cable to keep their stations–Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, etc.–on the air.

Blagojevich: We fully expected to return from our travels and find him out of office.  No such luck.

2008: Sooooooo over the ‘top ten’ and ‘best of’ lists.  Hello 2009!

STILL SIZZLING: This celebrity supercouple may or may not be getting divorced on Valentine’s Day.  But what about the kids?!

#1 album in the country!

#1 album in the country!

Mark Ruffalo: So yesterday we said the suspect was in custody.  She’s since been released now that there’s evidence pointing to suicide!

Britney: New album topped the charts.  Comeback complete or just beginning?

Tom Cruise: This week’s PEOPLE cover story.  Finally, a TomKat feature by a reputable magazine!

Brad Pitt: Says, predictably, that he and Angie weren’t too happy about last month’s NYT piece that called her manipulative. “[They’re] talking about not only the woman I love, but one of the people on this planet who I have the greatest respect for.”  Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Pete Wentz: Named Travis McCoy (of Gym Class Heroes) godfather of Bronx Mowgli.  Why not Pete Stump or one of the other Fall Out Boy bandmates?  (Sidenote:  now McCoy says he and GF Katy Perry have baby fever!)

Ricky Martin: Releasing photos of his twins, born via surrogate.  No romantic details, though, which is obviously what people really want.  The photos, though, apparently are good enough for the cover of PEOPLE En Espanol.

Fantasia: The economy is affecting (wannabe) stars, too.  The Idol winner has to auction her home.  This comes after needing a loan to pay her taxes.

Rolling Stone: Doing layoffs but still making lists.  TV on the Radio put out the album of the year and Beyonce’s Single Ladies is the top single.

Yahoo: To add insult to injury, the script used to tell thousands they lost their job today has leaked to the ‘net.  Bet that makes them feel reallllll good.  Also, it’s worth taking a look at Yahoo’s history.

NOT Sarah Palin!

NOT Sarah Palin!

Kevin Federline: Telling “his side” of his “life with Britney.” What timing!

90210: You can catch Jamie Walters (Ray Pruitt, whose songs were cut from the 90210 DVDs…tear!) on VH1’s new “celebreality” show Confessions of a Teen Idol. But will he perform??

Tori Spelling: The 90210 alum has apparently changed the release date of her second book to coincide with debut of her mom’s memoir. We love it!

Tina Fey: Being “sexed up” by the media, claims Salon. Won’t hurt her one bit, we think.

Gawker: We’re not even going to be able to get jobs at our back-up sites! We need a Plan C stat!

Denis Leary: Says 9/11 conspiracy theories will get some serious play on the new season of Rescue Me. The topic is both fascinating and sensitive. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!

Tyra Banks: Humble enough to say she’s not a media mogul but not so humble to say she won’t be one some day. How admirable.

Guns N Roses: So the free Dr. Pepper didn’t work out so well, and, man, are they pissed!

Michael Phelps: Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Sean Avery: Trash-talking will get you suspended. Just ask Sean: he called out a rival hockey player for dating his ex, actress Elisha Cuthbert, and now he’s out indefinitely!

Ethan Hawke: Along with other celebs like Ashley Judd, he designed his very own box of condoms to be auctioned off for charity. Beyond weird.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This new Broadway show has barely started and its already offering tickets at 40 percent off! On the bright side, the previews generated more than $1 million! Maybe it’ll live happier ever after afterall!

Oh, how we've missed you! (And, oh, how we're still waiting for Everwood on DVD!)

Oh, how we've missed you! (And, oh, how we're still hoping for more Everwood DVDs!)

Jennifer Hudson: Her former brother-in-law has officially been arrested–but not charged–in the deaths of her mother, brother and nephew. One step closer to justice?

Britney: The most searched term on Yahoo…for the seventh time!

Gossip Girl: Was anyone surprised by last night’s ending? We think not.

Grammys: Nominations revealed tomorrow, museum opens on Saturday. Big week!

News Media: To blame for Black Friday mania and the Mumbai attacks?

CNN: Practically the only news organization making a profit these days–and stepping up their game even more by unveiling a wire service meant to compete with the AP.

Gregory Smith: Finally coming back to television and it’s on a pretty much-canceled show? Well, that’s just great.

American Idol: Promos for season 8 have hit the ‘net and we are LOVING the David Cook one.

Obama: Even with him as a role model, creating strong black characters on television will remain a challenge. Guess progress really does take baby steps.

The Real World: The first episode of the new Brooklyn season has been released to the media. The question: does anyone care anymore? This is, after all, season 21!

Time: Now the magazine of choice for college students, in place of Cosmopolitan. Also a preference of the past: Perez Hilton.com. Hallelujah!

SIZZLED OUT: Michael Phelps

STILL SIZZLING: Which singer featured her own parents as wedding guests in her new video?

Enjoy the holiday.  We'll be back on Friday!

Enjoy the holiday. We'll be back Monday.

Shenae Grimes: Disputing rumors of an eating disorder.  We’ve met her and the rest of the 90210 cast multiple times and we don’t recall her being any skinnier than the rest of the girls.

Rosie Live: We weren’t disappointed but we weren’t satisfied, either.  We probably liked this article more than the actual show, though.

NBC: Superbowl ads aren’t really selling because of the economy.  Surprise, surprise.

Britney: MTV is counting down her best news moments but we like to believe the best is still yet to come.

T.I.: Less than week after he took the witness stand in a trial against the man accused of killing his assistant, T.I. can rest easy knowing the now-declared murderer will spend at least 20 years behind bars.
