Look familiar?  You just saw it reimagined (aka poorly copied) on last night's OTH!

Look familiar? You just saw it reimagined (aka poorly copied) on last night's OTH.

Gossip Girl: Last night’s ep was the second with Wallace Shawn, known to most of us as the teacher from Clueless.  He seems out of place, but then again, that is precisely the point.

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: Nate turned his father in to the Feds.  How original.  Oh wait.  Dawson’s Creek did that back in 19-freakin-99!

One Tree Hill: Speaking of biting off of a original (and arguably better) teen drama, did Chad Michael Murray seriously pen a scene that was a direct copy of Toni’s death in Dylan’s arms (in the rain, no less!) on 90210?  And that was from 1996, people!  We don’t care what they say: imitation is NOT the sincerest form of flattery!

Obama: Gave 60 Minutes its best ratings in 9 years.  So when will the attraction begin to fade?

Obama Pt. 2: Newsweek is predicting a baby boom directly tied to Obama’s win.  Everyone gettin’ busy on election night?  Stranger things have happened.

Stephen Colbert: You know you’re big when D.C.’s elite gets together to roast you.  Will Obama be next?

TRL: This pays better tribute to the finale than we ever could.

TV Guide: Also making staff cuts.  We. Give. Up.

Scarlett Johansson: Apparently she was Katy Perry’s inspiration for I Kissed a Girl.  Are we the only ones that don’t find her (or her lips) attractive??

Viewer Habits: Unhappy?  Likely you watch more TV.  No shame in that!

Rosie O’Donnell: Her variety show is fast approaching and we’re totally psyched!

House: Will Thirteen die?  That’s what E!Online is suggesting…

Heather Locklear: Officially charged with DUI–a misdemeanor.  No word yet on the possible reprecussions if found guilty.

Cloris Leachman: We told you that an 82-year-old on DWTS wasn’t a good thing!  The former contestant was in the hospital recently for a “bad cold.”  Is that what they’re calling it these days?

SIZZLED OUT: Ashlee Simpson

STILL SIZZLING: This tough guy is accused of pulling a  Martha!  Or so the government says.  The former DWTS contestant–and current owner of the Dallas Mavericks–has been charged with insider trading.  He plans to let justice “do its job,” whatever that means.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Jennifer Hudson: The boy found earlier today was positively identified as Hudson’s nephew.  The growing enormity of this tragedy has left us speechless. 

Julianne Hough: So it turns out it wasn’t just a stomache after all.  The 20-year-old will have her appendix removed as part of treatment for endometrosis, a disease affecting the uterus and surrounding organs.  Our only previous experience with endometrosis?  When Kelly was diagnosed with it on (the original) 90210.

Obama: Another assassination attempt against the presidential candidate has been pre-emptively foiled.  Are we the only ones who think they will increase ten-fold if he’s actually elected?

DWTS: Is Cloris a success because of her age or her personality?  And can both be considered ‘sexy’ qualities?  Just thinking about this gives us the heebie-jeebies but the Chicago Tribune doesn’t seem to mind.

Apatow and Co.: The relationship between Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith is quite incesutous.  Turns out, that’s also what makes it so great.  We should start a fan club.

Chad Michael Murray: Revealed a lot of juicy, previously unconfirmed news in an interview this morning.  He and the much-younger Kenzie (a former OTH extra) are still engaged and will likely marry in North Carolina.  He has no problem working with ex-wife Sophia Bush–especially since she’s with fellow co-star James Lafferty!  And the only thing stopping a seventh season of One Tree Hill is the network’s sign-on. Very, very interesting.

Economy: The reason networks are still airing low-rated shows like Knight Rider and Terminator: The  Sarah Connor Chronicles.  Great, so we’ll be broke AND un-entertained.

Trista and Ryan: As they await the arrival of baby number two, the couple is considering a return to reality television.  We have little respect for parents that want to subject their kids to that environemtn.

A role model for high school kids?

A role model for high school kids?

Britney: Faced months in jail if a jury found her guilty of a misdemeanor (driving without a valid license). Lucky for her the jury was declared “hopelessly deadlocked” and she won’t be retried. Was she given special treatment because of her celebrity? Let the debating commence!

90210: Not on tonight–the second week in a row. This is not a bad thing.

Teen TV: A (unscientific) research article found that teens say their reality is very different than what is shown on screen. Shock of shocks.

Nick Hogan: Out of jail after serving less than his 8-month sentence. His friend/victim is still severely injured. There are no winners here.

Beyonce: Loved gaining 15 lbs. for an upcoming movie, she told InStyle. We would, too, if we knew it would melt away as soon as filming was done.

DWTS: Brooke Burke still performed last night even though she injured her foot earlier in the day. That show is not safe, we tell ya! Hear that, Cloris?

Transformers: Universal is making a ride based on the movie. Guess that means we can still get away with not seeing it! Hurrah!

Ashton Kutcher: High school football coach and creator of a web site for teenage girls? It’s true. What happened to the old Ashton?

Chace Crawford: For someone who supposedly wants to overcome the “gayface” label, this photo spread certainly won’t help.

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Guess they won't be doing THAT anymore!

Madonna: So it’s true.  Their reps have released a joint statement.  Divorce will proceed.  Settlement not yet reached.  What we want to know: so did she really have an affair with A-Rod?

Rolling Stone: The over-sized mag is going on a diet.  Starting with the Oct. 30th issue, the magazine will appear just like all the other glossy mags out there.  They save money, we get more pages.  Good for everyone?

Janet Jackson: Her rep is saying the mysterious illness was a case of bad migraines.  Um, okay.

DWTS: Cloris Leachman, 82, is still in the competition.  We still think this can only end badly.

AMA: Among the nominees for the American Music Awards: Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Lil’ Wayne and Taylor Swift.  Jimmy Kimmel will host for the 5th time.  Guess people aren’t sick of him.

Beyonce: Will be giving fans a multiple choice with her new album: a 17-track double disc or an 11-song version.  Smart economical move?
