Shannen Doherty version 2.0

Shenae Grimes: AKA Shannen Doherty version 2.0

Gawker: We love their headline today: Newspapers Agree, Today is Election Day!

CBS: Is there a such thing as comfort food through television?  CBS seems to think so.  They’re crediting the bad economy for their surging ratings.  Apparently the network is a “safe haven.”  Not for us, though.  It’s still our least favorite.

HSM: OMFG, a sing-along version of the third movie will be in theaters THIS FRIDAY!  We are so there!

Shenae Grimes: As rumors persist that the new 90210 starlet is this generation’s Shannen Doherty, the young actress admits seeking advice from dear ol’ Brenda.  Something tell us–perhaps it’s the multiple show firings or the I Hate Brenda Newsletter–this wasn’t the best idea.

Fuse: In the ongoing music television war, Fuse has won the latest battle.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremonies, previously broadcast on MTV and VH1, are now partnered with Fuse.  And here we thought nobody watched the ceremonies to begin with.

MTV: Striking out even more with secret layoffs that will supposedly go down today.  Guess not a lot of people just want their MTV anymore.

Viacom: Would you rather a huge, annual holiday party or two extra vacation days?  Viacom isn’t giving its employees a choice, just the latter.  No wonder MTVers (owned by Viacom) are so bummed these days.

AOL: Are the morning news shows too long or just too boring?  No need to worry anymore since AOL is condensing them into a handy 5-minute clip.  But will people really take the time to seek this out if they didn’t care to watch in the first place?

Obama: Don’t expect to see many celebs at the massive rally tonight in Chicago.  The Obama camp has specifically asked certain stars like Diddy and Ben Affleck not to attend (and it’s Diddy’s b-day today!).  Discrimination, anyone?  Or just a smart safety-focused (and maybe a teeny bit selfish) move?

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day. Sigh.

Tina Fey: Is Bristol Palin her newest babysitter?  The offer has been made by Mrs. Palin.  Fey’s response: “I was like, yeah, that’s exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do, at ‘SNL,’ is babysit the toddler of the lady that goofs on her mom.”  We’re just wondering if Bristol will even want to babysit her own toddler.

Redemption Song: American Idol for boozies, strippers and cons.  We kid you not.  Gotta love Fuse.

Obama: Pundits across America are weighing in on last night’s last-ditch effort by Obama to secure American’s vote.  But what about all the people that already voted through absemtee and early ballots?  Lost causes?

Phillies: MLB champs.  Notice how we didn’t say World Series champs.  Semantics, really, but how can you win a world championship when the whole world doesn’t have the opportunity to play?  The MLB is only in America, folks!

Jennifer Hudson: As expected, all the entertainment/gossip mags have Hudson-focused covers.  Curious to see how they sell and which one does the best.

Time Inc.: Laying off up to 600 staffers in the coming weeks.  Now how will we ever get a job there?!

TiVo: Got TiVo?  Now you got Netflix, too.  The two have married.  Applause all around.  Except for us.  We still don’t have TiVo.  Or Netflix.

SIZZLED OUT: Melrose Place

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor has walked the line for the final time?  He’s retiring at age 34!
