Can you believe this was 14 years ago?!

Can you believe this was 14 years ago?!

Grammys: Great show.  Full recap here.

Chris Brown: WTF is going on?!  Please tell us Rihanna is not the woman he got in a fight with!  Will this kill his previously-stellar rep?  Or is he innocent until proven guilty?

Usher: Canceled his pre-Grammy performance after someone in his family was injured.  PEOPLE claims it was his wife, Tameka Foster, and from a plastic surgery operation.

Blink-182: In addition to announcing their reunion at the Grammys, the group also updated their official site with the news.  “Friendships reformed,” new album, world tour.  So exciting!

Jennifer Aniston: Making a movie about artificial insemination.  Foreshadowing?

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: Says she wouldn’t be opposed to a Friends reunion special.  Hurrah!

DWTS: Announced contestants include: Denise Richards, Steve-O, Lil’ Kim, Jewel (and her husband!) and Nancy O’Dell.  Full list here.  No one interests us.  Sad.

Obama: Inspiring election campaigns in Israel…even though they didn’t want him to be president.  Gotta love that bandwagon!

BAFTAS: Slumdog Millionaire won SEVEN awards!  Jeez.  Spread the wealth, guys!

Will Ferrell: People may be walking out of his Broadway show but we have a feeling Will Ferrell gets the last laugh.  Anyone who can show former President Bush’s penis in a show is obviously quite funny.

McDonalds: Sponsoring Fashion Week and giving away free coffee.  Do fashionistas drink coffee?  Or is it that they take anything that’s free?

The Daily Beast: Suggests Jessica Simpson’s weight issues could lead to a financial gain.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s what’s most important.

SIZZLED OUT: Ricki Lake

STILL SIZZLING: If it’s not one thing, it’s always another for this sports star.  His recent headlines about his lovelife are being overshadowed by a new report: testing positive for steroids!

Scroll down to see when this classic episode first aired!

Scroll down to see when this classic episode first aired!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe we’re reading too much into it but her face just seemed so sad during her Superbowl performance, the first one since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew in October.

Bruce Springteen: The Boss, on the other hand, was overly enthusiastic, going as far as sliding across the stage…and slamming his crotch into a camera.  Just as funny: when he said “I’m going to Disneyland!”  Guess he forgot he was in Tampa and in Florida it’s called Disney World!

The Daily Beast: Their lookback at some of the best post-Superbowl programming includes a classic Friends episode with Julia Roberts and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s debut on Survivor.  Our favorite: Kevin and Winnie’s first kiss on The Wonder Years.

Britney: News broke late on Friday that she and her conservator (aka her dad) obtained restraining orders against Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi, the creepos who were in life back when it was going down the tubes.

Michael Phelps: So aside from the fact that smoking marijuana is illegal, we don’t see what the big deal is.  It’s such a common thing for people his age.  And it’s unfair that, because of his Olympic success, he’s been put on this pedestal in a role model-like position.  Cut him some slack!

Oprah: We have to wonder if hiring a former MTV CEO to head up her network is the best idea.  Something tell us MTV and the Oprah Winfrey Network won’t be going after the same audiences…

Obama: The other famous O is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and it’s quite an unflattering photo.  They made his head look huge!

Wheel of Fortune: If you watch all this week, you’ll see the contestants that we taped with!  Our episode, however, doesn’t air til the 27th.

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Faris (Chris Pratt)

STILL SIZZLING: ABC Family shook up their schedule by announcing 3 news shows–and the canceling of this cult fave.

Was this foreshadowing?

Was this foreshadowing?

Ashlee Simpson: Gave birth last night to a boy named Bronx Mowgli.  We have a feeling dad Pete Wentz picked the name.  At least he wasn’t kidding earlier this week when he said fatherhood was “imminent.”

PEOPLE: That Sexiest Man Alive issue will feature scratch and sniff.  Even WE are creeped out.

Reese Witherspoon: Now we know for sure not to believe any tabloid that says Reese and Jake are headed to the altar.  The star herself says she’s not ready to remarry now, if ever.

Jennifer Aniston: Admits she’s computer illiterate and thinks Facebook is like “dancing with the devil.”  Sure she wasn’t talking about Angelina?

Jennifer Aniston Pt. 2: Loves watching FRIENDS repeats.  Ego trip?  She also says she watches some of the episodes and doesn’t actually remember doing them or what they were about.   We never understand celebs when they say that!  We remember every little detail of every little episode and we didn’t even make the damn things!  What’s your excuse?

ABC: The ax has fallen on not one, not two but THREE shows: Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Is there anything left?!

CW: Did some cancellations of its own but none that we really care about.  Just the out-sourced shows that aired for a millisecond on Sunday nights.  In are repeats…of Jericho?  Weird.  That show was prematurely canceled itself!

Gossip Girl: To be honest, we don’t really understand this.  According to Ausiello, Connor Paolo (Eric) declined an offer to become a series regular yet will still stay on the show and somehow this is better for his career.  Whatevs.

SNL: People are speculating why Justin and Beyonce’s Single Ladies sketch isn’t available on-line.  Some say it’s JT’s fault because he wanted to be paid residuals.  Others say it’s just a “music clearance issue.”  How long til somebody caves?

SNL Pt. 2: Did last week’s show seem especially ‘gay’ to you?  Headwriter Seth Meyers was asked that very same question.

Heroes: The creator is blaming the show’s decline on DVR.  And now a TIME writer is taking him to task for not accepting responsibility.

Obama: Shows are seizing on the opportunity to name-drop the president-elect.  It’s actually kinda cool and makes them seem more real, we think.

Obama Pt. 2: The Washington Post takes an interesting look on whether it really matters if O has in fact quit smoking.

Roger Ebert: We love self-deprecation!  Ebert shows how good he is at it–and how he can be poignant at the same time–when he looks back on how his appearance has changed over the years.

Rosie O’Donnell: We LOVE her response to Babs’ insults on yesterday’s View.  Classic Ro.

Twitter: Now being used by Shaquille O’Neal.  Does that mean it’s time for us to stop?

SIZZLED OUT: Winona Ryder

STILL SIZZLING: This guy is the latest to be caught on camera with his pants down. But what will the queen say?!

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.

A little less time, a little more music, please.

A little less time, a little more music, please.

Madonna: Reports are swirling this morning that Madonna and Guy will announce the divorce that has been rumored for so long.  Her rep declined comment–perhaps that means an official statement this afternoon?  Check back later today for part 2!

Joe Manganiello: The actor–who plays Owen on One Tree Hill–has a legit Facebook profile.  No shit.

James Van der Beek: The return of Dawson?  Sort of.  One Tree Hill creator, Mark Schwahn, has confirmed that the teen soap veteran will guest-star on a November ep, as a filmmaker.  Kind of like Dawson, no?

Tim McGraw: He’s “embarrassed” that his record label put out another greatest hits album instead of new music.  After all, he’s had THREE compilations out in the last 2 years.  Time for new music is right!

Iron Man 2: Don Cheadle will be taking over Terrence Howard’s role.  We don’t really know what that means considering we never saw Iron Man in the first place.

Matthew Perry: Showtime is making a show starring the former friend but we’re more excited to see him in 17 Again with Zac Efron!

Gossip Girl: Yalies are quite upset with their portrayal in Monday’s episode.  Pretentious much?

TV Guide: The struggling mag has been sold to a private equity company.  No word yet on what that means exactly for the magazine but hopefully it’ll stay around long enough for us to work there!

Fall Out Boy: New album pushed back to DECEMBER?! Blame the election.

SIZZLED OUT: Maureen McCormick (Marcia Brady)

STILL SIZZLING: If rumors of a funeral are true, New York City may get a little less crowded on this TV show.
