David Cook: The reigning Idol will participate in a charity run benefiting brain cancer research. Cook has seen the devastating effects of the disease first-hand, as his brother is currently battling it.  We wish them both the best of luck.

YouTube: Upping the ante in its battle against Hulu, the video-sharing site will increase its offering of free television shows.

Ashton Kutcher: At approximately 1:10am (central time), Kutcher became the first Twitter user to get a million followers.  CNN, ever the good sport, was quick to admit its defeat.  Good fun had by all.  Now when does the unfollowing start?

Oprah: Caught the Twitter bug, too, and will dedicate today’s show to the subject.

SIZZLED OUT: Fantasia

STILL SIZZLING: Cameron Diaz shaves her head–or so it seems–in the trailer for this new movie based on a heartbreaking book.

Even the circus leaves town...

Even the circus leaves town...

Britney: The headline says it all: Bad economy may Britney Spears’s Circus Tent.  See, even iconic pop stars aren’t immune!

Prison Break: Here’s some more info on the series’ end–it won’t all air on TV!  The so-called finale is still on for May 15 but then there will be two additional episodes released on DVD.  Thanks for digging into our pockets, guys.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles are as good as canceled.  At least this frees up Brian Austin Green for 90210!

Twitter: Apparently there’s a “fight” going on between Ashton Kutcher and CNN’s Larry King on who will get to a million followers first.  Don’t these people have work to do??

Variety: We understand that they’re traditionally a trade magazine (read: in print), but really have no idea why they would lay off one of the web editors.  Pretty sure the web is the future of journalism.  Just sayin’.

Alec Baldwin: Speaking of the industry’s future, Baldwin wrote a whole column on it for The Huffington Post.  Why Baldwin?  We’re still trying to figure that one out.

Condoleezza Rice: And it gets weirder: Rice is now a columnist for The Daily Beast and she’s writing about, of all things, her love of Tiger Woods.  Random!

Gawker: Came up with the “5 types of American Idol watchers.” Love it!  Where do you fall?

3-D: Coming to a television near you!  The first “full-time 3-D network” is in the works.   Expect people to have a lot more headaches and nausea!

Blagojevich: Wow.  Just wow.  The former Illinois governor has signed on to a REALITY SHOW!  Can’t make this stuff up, folks!

SIZZLED OUT: TV Land

STILL SIZZLING: This actress (and book author!) is denying rumors that she’s anorexic.  Her excuse: she’s been pregnant and people have forgotten what she looks like thin!

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?

Feels like just yesterday, doesn't it, Carson?

Brothers & Sisters: It was really nice that the show wanted to incorporate Proposition 8 awareness into its show.  Too bad the episode will air after the measure passed.  Damn scheduling changes.

Supreme Court: Considering they hear very few cases, it’s really bothersome that they’re spending their time debating the use of curse words on TV.  Aren’t there more important issues going on?

CNN: Were you as confused as we were by the hologram magic on CNN’s election coverage the other night?  This article explains the science behind it and, well, we’re still confused.

Gulliver’s Travels: We never had any incentive before to read the book and, whaddyaknow, that’s about to change!  The classic tale is being made into a movie with Jack Black!  That’s enough to send us right to the library.

Google: Any chance at partnering with Yahoo is gone now that the big bad government said doing so would break antitrust laws.  We happen to think Monopoly the game is a lot more fun.  Maybe not for Google or Yahoo, though.

Political Cartoons: Man, we wish we could draw.  We wish we could be funny.  Political cartoonists get to be both!  And they’ve done a killer job with election results.

Youth Votership: Turnout was up by more than 2 million in comparison to the ’04 election.  Let’s hope it keeps rising in the future.

Election 2008: In case you’ve been living under a rock lately (or you want to reminisce or you just want to be amused) MTV has condensed the entire election into a 60-second clip.  Surprisingly, it’s pretty good!

TRL: We’re less than two weeks away from when the iconic show will air no more.  Looking back on the past 10 years, it’s like reliving our childhood all over again!

Backstreet Boys: Competing with NSYNC may seem so 90s but the original boy band admits they’re “still striving to be better!”  Watch out, Jonas Brothers!

SIZZLED OUT: Pete Wentz

STILL SIZZLING: This animated show is being called out by gay-rights groups for using the phrase ‘that’s so gay.’  How stupid can be you be?  Like, duh!

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

CNN: A comedy show on CNN?  It’s coming, and will be hosted by D.L. Hughley.  Says the network: “When you watch as much news as our audience does, there comes a time you just want to stop and laugh.”  As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.  Pretty true considering the current state of our country.  Go for the giggles!

Seth Rogen: His new flick–Zack and Miri Make a Porno–is running into some marketing problems.  Apparently a lot of places don’t want to advertise something so risque.  That only makes us want to see it more!

Project Runway: Picked its fifth winner last night.  This is getting old.

World Series: Rapidly approaching but the end might be getting farther.  MLB says the sixth game might be delayed due to Obama’s purchase of air time.

CW: Stepping up their game with a whole slew of guest stars for November sweeps–including Perez Hilton?!

The WB: Our new favorite site.  Watch full episodes of OTH, Everwood, The O.C., Smallville, Friends.  The lists gone on and on!  You MUST check it out!

More Crashes: Sadly, two more accidents happened this week.  Both Blake Lively’s dad and Gale Harold (of Desperate Housewives) were both injured in car wrecks.

Kanye West: What’s a good way to demonstrate the raw, natural quality your new album?  If you’re Kanye, that means having 30-plus completely naked women sitting on stage as the album plays.  We think the connection is a bit of a stretch.
