We never get tired of this family!

We never get tired of this family!

DWTS: Okay, so we admit we haven’t  been following this season that closely.  But we’re still surprised by who won.  Shawn Johnson?  Really?

PEOPLE: And the disappointment continues now that PEOPLE put Bristol Palin and baby on the cover of their new issue. So unnecessary.

Upfronts: Okay, all the news of pick-ups and cancellations is just getting to be too much.  We can’t keep track anymore!  Who wants to make us a handy chart?

MTV Movie Awards: Including exclusive clips from New Moon, the Transformers sequel and the next Harry Potter flick should definitely drive up ratings.  Maybe they’re better off with just a two-hour long clipfest?

The Cosby Show: Absolutely cannot get enough of all the 25th anniversary goodness!

SIZZLED OUT: Huffington Post

STILL SIZZLING: We’d say the cancellation of this show is like Everwood all over again but we didn’t actually watch it.  Guess that was part of its problem, eh?

Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

American Idol: The season culminates tonight–and tomorrow–with the final face-off between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.  Is it bad that we don’t have a preference?

DWTS: The season also culminates for this show tonight.  (Coincidence?) But a new article suggests winning ultimately means very little for your career.  Poor Melissa Rycroft.

Fox: Unveiled its fall schedule yesterday with six new shows, including Glee which will actually premiere this week.  None of them interest us but that’s probably for the best.  We can’t handle any more television commitments!

Christina Applegate: It quickly went from a great month to a bad one for Applegate, now that her show Samantha Who? was officially canceled. Bet she’s hoping that PEOPLE cover will lead to a new gig.

Social Media: Gotta love getting instant-reaction from celebs on everything as mundane as daily errands to earthquakes.  Thanks, SM.

Newsweek: Need to pick up the new issue to check out its massive redesign.  Curious to know all your thoughts, too!

SIZZLED OUT: 90210

STILL SIZZLING: Someone bid $13,000 to intern at this on-line publication, one that’s mostly known for letting nearly anyone with an opinion do a blog post.

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

American Idol: It’s hard out there for an Idol, especially if you’re David Cook.  The reigning champ took to his MySpace blog to call out aggressive fans.  Warns Cook: “preventative measures” may be taken if their behavior doesn’t stop.

DWTS: We always wondered what the celeb contestants got for their participation.  We hoped and assumed it was a donation to their favorite charity but apparently that’s not the case.  Instead they get paid upwards of $200,000!

Justin Timberlake: Wonder how Jessica Biel feels about JT’s sexy appearance in Ciara’s new music video.  You can say it’s acting and just business, but we know we wouldn’t be okay with this!

David Letterman: The Late Show host is just the latest entertainer to get married recently.  Dave announced last night that he wed his longtime girlfriend and babymama. Glad to hear there’ll be one more happy families around!

Lance Armstrong: In the midst of a cycling comeback, Armstrong has broken his collarbone.  Let’s wish the cyclist and father-to-be (again) a speedy recovery.

Facebook: Still getting slammed for the recent redesign but has said nothing to appease users.  This can’t end well, can it?

Jossip: Redesigned again!  At least they’ve re-posted a slew of Ashton Kutcher’s TwitPics.

SIZZLED OUT: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

STILL SIZZLING: This actress-comedian is working to recapture the magic of the 90s as she develops another sitcom.

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

Rihanna: One of the columnists at Entertainment Weekly wrote a great column on how people are mistaken for thinking Rihanna is a role model.  Memo to the world: being a pop singer doesn’t make you qualified to set examples for kids!

American Idol: Rumor has it that the producers already “picked” the final four.  The show’s response?  “No comment.”  Wouldn’t be the first time they’ve been accused of rigging the voting.  Definitely won’t be the last.

DWTS: There’s a ton of so-called professional post-show bloggers out there, but for an inside source, check out judge Bruno Tonioli’s over at The Daily Beast.

Madonna: Working on a greatest hits album to be released in the fall.  Will likely include new songs as well.  Does this woman ever stop?!

Natasha Richardson: With so many conflicting stories out there, we’re not going to link to anything.  Some say she’s brain dead.  Others say she was talking fine after the accident.  Let’s stop speculating and just wait for an official comment!

Facebook: As hardcore Twitter users (follow us at @sizzlemaker!), we simultaneously annoyed and pleased by Facebook’s recent changes.  Most people, it seems, are just upset because they can be.  No one likes change, do they?

SIZZLED OUT: SciFi (becoming SyFy)

STILL SIZZLING: This late actor, best known for his filmwork, directed two soon-to-be-released music videos before his unexpected death.

barbie

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!

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

DWTS: Guess something good can come from being dumped on national television.  Melissa, now that she’s done with The Bachelor (in more ways than one) is rumored to be replacing Nancy O’Dell.  Guess we’ll find out when the season premieres tonight!

Ashlee Simpson: As if CSI wasn’t bad enough, Simpson is taking her acting skills over to the Melrose Place remake.  Is the show doomed now?  Or was it already?

Dakota Fanning: Officially joined the Twilight sequel, New Moon.  Guess her pale skin is an asset, then?

Demi Moore: Thank god for Twitter!  Otherwise we wouldn’t know Mrs. Kutcher fights with her TiVo and watches American Idol like the rest of us!

SIZZLED OUT: Vince Vaughn

STILL SIZZLING: It’s just not funny anymore.  This TV twosome called it quits…again.

A thriller of a press conference?

A thriller of a press conference?

Chris Brown: Charged yesterday with two felonies but got the arraignment postponed until April, so no plea was entered.  The attorney on Rihanna’s behalf said she did not wish to prohibit contact between the two.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Jossip is one of the first outlets we’ve seen do a piece on how Brown’s being treated unfairly/inaccurately by the media.  Totally agree!

The Bachelor: Change of heart or betrayal?  Those the are words PEOPLE is floating around in their new cover story.  Should be a big seller, no?

DWTS: The new season hasn’t even officially started yet and already there’s drama!  Both Jewel, who was injured last week, and the now-injured Nancy O’Dell have dropped out of the competition!  Supposedly their replacements won’t be announced until the premiere Monday but we imagine it’ll leak before then!

Ashlee Simpson: PEOPLE has a clip of her CSI guest-appearance alongside hubby Pete Wentz and it ain’t pretty.  With no effort made to change their looks, it’s hard to believe these two are playing any character other than themselves.

Michael Jackson: So he’s planning a comeback/farewell tour (yeah, we don’t get it either) but all signs point to the fact that Jacko is still wacko.  He’s not even playing in the States!

Robin Williams: At 57 years young, the actor-comedian will have heart valve replacement surgery.  If only laughter truly was the best medicine!

Seinfeld: It’s a yada yada yada reunion!  Jerry Seinfeld and co will appear on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, their first joint TV gig in more than a decade!

The Real World: This is probably the best thing to come out of the show in years.  MTV made a biopic based on Pedro, the season one three cast member who struggled with–and eventually died from–AIDS.

SIZZLED OUT: Sherri Shepherd (The View)

STILL SIZZLING: This funny man recently got engaged.  Think anyone will crash his wedding?
