A far cry from today's Barbie!

Chris Brown: Even though critics have urged Nickelodeon to revoke his Kids Choice Awards nominations, the network says the competition and voting will proceed as planned.  Wrong message to send to kids or what does one have to do with the other?  We’re very torn.

DWTS: Newsday is a bit “incredulous” that The Bachelor’s Melissa performed so well the other night despite being asked to join the competition last minute.  The article makes some interesting points but who really expects truth in reality television anymore?

Kelly Clarkson: Idol’s first winner admits she’s never fallen in love. How is that possible when little Miley Cyrus says she has dozens of times?

Jay Leno: Doing a free stand-up concert in Detroit for the unemployed.  Says Leno: “Who’s got money for entertainment these days?”  So true, Jay.  So true.

Conan O’Brien: Leno’s replacement is getting some funny endorsements from Tina Fey, Adam Sandler and other big-name stars.  Curious to see if the ratings stunt pays off when his new show premieres in June.  Still a long way off.

K-Rock: Rock and roll isn’t here to stay if you live in New York.  Later today, the radio station is changing to the Top 40 genre. That means no more Metallica and no more shock jocks Opie and Anthony.  The station’s previous switch from rock to talk radio failed and the company offered fans a mea culpa.  Maybe second time’s charm?

Barbie: Horrible narration aside, this video provides an interesting look at how Barbie has changed over the years.  Kind of made us want to go digging through our collection!

Power Rangers: Not sure if this should make us feel old or young, but the classic children’s series will no longer make new episodes.  Probably a good thing since every season after the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sucked.  That’s right–we said it.

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Tickets to this Brit’s concert sold out in just 7 seconds. Imagine what it would’ve been like if computer sales existed back in his group’s heyday!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Anne Hathaway: Would you pay $12,000 for a date with her? Some guy actually did. We don’t think any celebrity is worth that much!

Beatles: How about $200,000 to own their very first contract? Yeah, we wouldn’t spend that either.

Paula Abdul: Hasn’t slept at home since a fan committed suicide outside her house. Reasonable or ridiculous? We can’t decide.

Will Smith: Other celebs are banking on his 11-year marriage to stand the test of (Hollywood) time and, frankly, so are we. We can’t handle any more splits!

Jay Leno: Just because Conan is taking over The Tonight Show, Leno doesn’t have to go. He’ll just be on earlier.

Fran Drescher: Could the nanny also be a senator? That’s what she’s hoping for but we find it hard to believe it’ll happen. Caroline Kennedy does make a lot more sense.

Time: Compiled “The Top 10 Everything of 2008.” Definitely the best place for procrastination.

Online Media: Now eligible for the Pulitzer. Curious to see what, if anything, will be deemed worthy enough to win.

Gawker: Not that we didn’t know already that the media industry is floundering, but Gawker put together this handy-dandy chart of newspaper survival odds that just make things seem that much bleaker.

Network TV: New shows lead to cancellations which lead to more new shows. It’s a vicious cycle and it will gear up once again very soon.

Playboy: Christie Hefner (daughter of Hugh) has resigned her position as CEO of the company. Maybe she’s seen one too many naked ladies?

Holocaust: The subject of six films now out or soon to be. We believe this is a good thing, and wish others did, too.

Perez Hilton: Here’s your first look at his upcoming book. We have to warn you, though: it ain’t pretty!

The CW: We’re liking this new trailer, courtesy of Spoiler TV, for the winter season!

Polaroids: Disappearing before our very eyes!  Ah, technological evolution…

Wheel of Fortune: We’re going to be on the show! We tape in Los Angeles mid-January, though we don’t know when it’ll air. We’re sooo excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Which singer swears she’s completely sober now that she has a new album to promote? Answer: Lily Allen (Submitted by Ashley)

STILL SIZZLING: The quote of the day award goes to this comedian for for a hilarious one-liner: “This is the first time a First Lady can drop it like it’s hot!”
