Ledger in his final role.

Ledger in his final role.

Heath Ledger: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the film Ledger was making when he died, premiered at Cannes last week.  Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t have a US release date.  Still hard to believe we’re never getting more Ledger.

Susan Boyle: Her 15 minutes of fame got extended last night when she passed the semi-final round of Britain’s Got Talent.  She’ll compete in the finals next week.

CBS: Won the ratings game overall this season by averaging the most viewers.  Sad fact remains that viewership is down and will probably only go further south.

Gawker: Predicting the songs we’ll hear again and again this summer.  Major flaw: including “No Boundaries” by American Idol’s new champ Kris Allen.  Really don’t see that taking off.

Memorial Day: It means reflection, barbecues and TV marathons depending on who you are.  Among the marathon options: Jon & Kate Plus Eight, Golden Girls, Intervention and ANTM.

SIZZLED OUT: Mickey Mouse

STILL SIZZLING: This relatively new celebrity participated in a charity auction, where he offered kisses for $20,000 each.  Last we heard, he only liked the kind that drew blood.

No one messes with my mama!

Chuck: After delaying an announcement either way, fans can rest easy knowing Chuck and co. will be back for at least a little while.  NBC gave a 13-episode order, a sign of minimal commitment.

Brooke Shields: This is probably the most bizarre story we’ve heard in a while.  Shields is accusing reporters from the National Enquirer of going to her mother’s nursing home and checking her out in hopes of conjuring a story for the tabloid.  Well, they’ve certainly got a story now…

Precious: Very moved by the trailer for this film, starring–of all people–Mariah Carey.  If it’s good enough for Sundance and Cannes, Ms. Carey must’ve done something right.

Wuthering Heights: They’re remaking the film for the umpteenth time with a Gossip boy as the lead.  We still need to read the book.

New York Times: Jayson Blair may be long gone but that doesn’t means the days of on-staff plagiarism are over.  Just look to Maureen Dowd for proof.

SIZZLED OUT: Richard Hatch

STILL SIZZLING: This freshmen series will conclude its first season tomorrow night and return in the fall, even though viewers are hightailing  it out of the zip code.
