They're having a baby!

They're having a baby!

Prison Break: Finally returning next week with its last batch of episodes but with a new air day: Fridays.  Great, now the ratings will decrease even more!

Sarah Michelle Gellar: She’s been MIA for a while and now we know why: she was babymaking!  The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star (and wife of Freddie Prinze Jr.) is expecting her first child.  Congrats to her!

NBC: There’s a comprehensive look at the Peacock network’s failures (and limited successes) under much maligned head, Ben Silverman.  How does this guy still have a job?!

Los Angeles Times: Well, NBC did accomplish something: got Cali’s biggest newspaper to run a front-page ad for new series Southland.  And not just any ad, one that looks exactly like an article.  Yes, journalism ethics have been thrown out the window.

Parade: The weekly mag compiled their annual list of celebrity salaries and, needless to say, it’s quite interesting.  Makes you wonder if there really is a recession going on.

SIZZLED OUT: Bruce Springsteen

STILL SIZZLING: This musicially-inclined couple brought in a whopping $162 million last year.  You can put a lot of rings on it with that!

Asking for trouble!

Asking for trouble!

Chris Brown: Some radio stations are refusing to play his (arguably) hit songs, part of the backlash for his alleged assault on (as far as we’re concerned) alleged victim, Rihanna.  Is it fair for the stations do this?  We think not.  Innocent until proven guilty!  Everyone’s just running on gossip right now.

Jennifer Aniston: In honor of her 40th birthday (which was yesterday), PEOPLE put together an on-line gallery of their magazine covers that featured her.  Most interesting: all the ones that feature her and Brad!

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: The Daily Beast does its own tribute with a look at all the love lessons poor Jen should’ve learned from her movies!

A-Rod: In an article on how to save his reputation, The Daily Beast suggests staying away from Madonna.  We probably could’ve told him that!

Bruce Springsteen: Took to his blog to write a very lengthy post about his Superbowl experiences, including his now infamous crotch slam.  Not that we needed to be reminded of it.

ACMs: Nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards were revealed yesterday, with Carrie Underwood as the only female up for entertainer of the year.  Really, no other woman was worthy of consideration?!

Pushing Daisies: If you miss the underappreciated and prematurely canceled show, you can now catch it on TheWB.com!

Sirius XM: Not even a year since the satellite radio companies merged, and the conglomerate is already facing trouble.  The New York Times reports that the company will likely file for bankruptcy, and might lose big-name stars like Howard Stern and Martha Stewart.

Ticketmaster: Planning a merger of its own, with LiveNation.  But for it to actually happen, the companies have to prove they’re not breaking any anti-trust laws.

Digital T V: If you thought you caught a break when Congress approved a delay in the switch from analog signals, you may have been mistaken.  Almost 500 stations are still planning to make the change prior to the extended deadline.  Good luck everyone!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: This singer-actress recently got back together with her musician boyfriend–and now they’re engaged!  Guess she has a crush on him still!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe we’re reading too much into it but her face just seemed so sad during her Superbowl performance, the first one since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew in October.

Bruce Springteen: The Boss, on the other hand, was overly enthusiastic, going as far as sliding across the stage…and slamming his crotch into a camera.  Just as funny: when he said “I’m going to Disneyland!”  Guess he forgot he was in Tampa and in Florida it’s called Disney World!

The Daily Beast: Their lookback at some of the best post-Superbowl programming includes a classic Friends episode with Julia Roberts and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s debut on Survivor.  Our favorite: Kevin and Winnie’s first kiss on The Wonder Years.

Britney: News broke late on Friday that she and her conservator (aka her dad) obtained restraining orders against Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi, the creepos who were in life back when it was going down the tubes.

Michael Phelps: So aside from the fact that smoking marijuana is illegal, we don’t see what the big deal is.  It’s such a common thing for people his age.  And it’s unfair that, because of his Olympic success, he’s been put on this pedestal in a role model-like position.  Cut him some slack!

Oprah: We have to wonder if hiring a former MTV CEO to head up her network is the best idea.  Something tell us MTV and the Oprah Winfrey Network won’t be going after the same audiences…

Obama: The other famous O is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and it’s quite an unflattering photo.  They made his head look huge!

Wheel of Fortune: If you watch all this week, you’ll see the contestants that we taped with!  Our episode, however, doesn’t air til the 27th.

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Faris (Chris Pratt)

STILL SIZZLING: ABC Family shook up their schedule by announcing 3 news shows–and the canceling of this cult fave.
