Which do you prefer?

Which do you prefer?

90210: The “competition” with Gossip Girl continues, thanks primarily to the media.  How about we choose neither and go with the original Beverly Hills, 90210 instead!

TCM: Beyond moving tribute to all the wonderful actors we lost this year.

The Hills: They’re cursing us with syndication.  Lord help us!

Obama: Last month we showed you what Michelle might wear to the inauguration. Now we’ve got some options for the big man himself!

SIZZLED OUT: One Tree Hill (Felix)

STILL SIZZLING: Important announcement tomorrow!

this totally turns us on!

We admit it: this totally turns us on!

Tom Cruise: Admits he was “arrogant” in his infamous Matt Lauer interview.  We forgave him a long time ago, but we know we’re in the minority.

Madonna: Will pay Guy Ritchie between $72 and $96 million.  Well, which is it?  There’s a big difference between the two!

OTH: Hmmmm.  Supposedly even with a Melrose remake, One Tree Hill could get a seventh season–with Schwahn!  We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

Gossip Girl: The book series’ author hates the way the show depicts Aaron, Serena’s new beau.  Considering he gives us the creeps, we completely agree!

Prison Break: We watch and we watch and we’re still confused. Totally frustrating.

Rachael Ray: If you looked forward to the chatterbox having no voice for several weeks, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.  Surgery has been called off for now, as a new treatment for her sore vocal chords seems to be working.

The Crow: One of our favorite cult movies is being remade!  But we really can’t see anyone but the late Brandon Lee playing the lead!  Lee was killed during film when a real bullet accidentally dislodged from a prop gun.  So sad.

The Office: Here’s one more reason to watch the post-Superbowl episode: Jack Black will be on it!

Facebook: Decreased in value by more than $15 billion!  What do you think it’s worth?

SIZZLED OUT: Terminator

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete was just kicked off his team–more fallout from trash-talking a rival and former actress-girlfriend.

The family that works together, stays together?

The family that works together, stays together?

EW: Rumors about it going on-line only are false, says the mag.  That makes us happy, even if we knock them every now and again.

The Dark Knight: If the DVD is flying off the shelves, why would anyone go to see it again in theaters?

Full House: Last week we heard about a remake and now it’s not happening.  Consider us  bummed.

Gossip Girl: And don’t be fooled.  This spin-off isn’t happening, either!

Twilight: New director will likely be Chris Weitz.  His previous credits include American Pie.  Just sceams family-friendly, doesn’t it?  On the flipside, he was once nominated for an Oscar.  Screams talent?  You decide.

Harry Potter: If you love the books/films so much, you might want to book a trip to Chicago.  The Museum of Science and Industry there will have a HP exhibit through September.

Will Ferrell: And if you can’t make it to New York, too, to see his show “You’re Welcome, America.  A Final Night with George W. Bush,” stay tuned to HBO which will do a live telecast in the somewhat near future.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Mixing business with pleasure, she and babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard (what’s with the double As?) will star together in an off-Broadway show.  Let’s hope this doesn’t mean doom for the couple, for the kid’s sake at least.

YouTube: 40 inspirational speeches, all cut from movies, in 2 minutes.  Awesome.

Gawker: Unveiled a redesign late yesterday.  It’s okay.  We’re not big fans of change, though.

Cosmetic Surgery: Do you feel like women’s mags are endorsing it?  We’ve never really thought about it, so guess that’s a no for us.

McDonald’s: Trying to start an ad war with Starbucks and we kind of like it.

KB Toys: Going out of business.  So that means Toys R Us is all that’s left, right?  Good thing that was our favorite!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: We love this whimsical writer but people seem to be bagging on him lately.  (Hint: You can use the last name to make play on the word shadenfreude!)

One governor's "web of deceit"

One governor's "web of deceit"

Mark Ruffalo: His brother, who was shot in the head last week, has died of his injuries.  The suspect finally turned herself in and will likely face a murder charge.

Grey’s Anatomy: This has been burning up the web the last few hours.  Apparently T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract.  Not all that surprising but still should be interesting to see how it unfolds.

Gossip Girl: Getting some buzz for their clever episode titles.  If memory serves us correctly, The O.C. (also by GG creator Josh Schwartz) had some pretty good ones, too.  Can’t forget The Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah or The SnO.C.!

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: We’ve been seeing a lot of speculation that Bart Bass isn’t actually dead.  Thoughts?

Rod Blagojevich: Most interesting to us about the arrested governor is that he actually thought he could have the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune fired!  Looks like he failed overall but still managed to cause some trouble for the paper.

Rod Blagojevich Pt. 2: If that chart above (by Gawker) is any indication, the soon-to-be former governor had a lot of connections.  Who will emerge unscathed?  Let’s hope Obama!

Rod Blogojevich Pt. 3: RedEye nominates Rick Astley to replace him.  We. Love. It.

Oprah: Admitting how much weight she’s gained–and how its fluxated through the years makes us feel a lot better!

According to Jim: Everyone’s quick to bash this show without realizing it has been leading the ratings for years.  Obviously, someone out there likes it!

Holiday TV: A fun look at the best and worst holiday-themed episodes of our favorite shows.  Oddly, there’s only two listed for the ‘worst.’  Surely there’s a lot more!

NBC: Ya know how General Motors is failing more and more each day?  So is NBC, says Newsday.  And no, they’re not being too harsh.

Yahoo: Massive layoffs happening today.

Rolling Stone: Already did theirs.

Twitter: Did you know we’re on there?  Yep, we are.

SIZZLED OUT: Wanda Sykes

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper was just arrested for the umpteenth time this year alone.  Doesn’t he ever learn?

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

A-Rod: Just “friends” with Madonna, he says. “That’s it.” Guess we have to believe him.

O.J. Simpson: Sentenced to at least 15 years in jail for armed robbery. Long overdue, some will surely say.

Johnny Depp: Says being a celebrity is “mortifying.” We have no sympathy.

Oprah: The most powerful woman in entertainment, says The Hollywood Reporter. We’ll get on board with that.

Priviledged: Guess sweeps stunts aren’t over at The CW. They just scheduled Pete Wentz to guest star. Is there anything that guy doesn’t do?

Gossip Girl: Spin-off buzz is building again. We’ll believe when we see it.

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: Legit Facebook profiles of the cast?

Pepsi: Receiving major flack for suicide-themed ads in Germany. We’d like to meet the person that thought they would be a good idea.

Trailers: We’re not the only ones who like them more than movies themselves!

Rush & Malloy: One of the most famous gossip columns is going from daily to weekly. Another sign of the times?

Mollywood: The gossip blog is shutting down. Jossip will try to fill the void.

MySpace: When one door closes, another opens. Launching its own gossip site, DailyFill though their label won’t be anywhere on it. Beneficial?

Gawker: Has a pretty fair response to EW’s 25 Smarted People in TV list.

Newsday: Another job opportunity gone. Our hometown paper is laying off 100 staffers. Happy Friday!

Media Ink: Filled with more bad news.

Nielsen: Think they suck? Here’s your chance to tell them. Please don’t waste it!

The Tom Cruise Effects

The Tom Cruise Effect

Katie Holmes: Revealed (again) that she had a crush on Tom Cruise growing up.  If only our celebrity crushes turned out just as well.

ABC: Planning a January reality series all about Homeland Security.  Isn’t that a breach of, um, security?

Heroes: May be saved by a deal that will bring back Bryan Fuller and his “creative voice” that brought the first season its wild success.

Josh Schwartz: Says Gossip Girl will go to college next season and will be more successful than 90210 because they have a bigger “stage,” so to speak.  Blasphemous!  We doubt GG will last the 10 years 90210 did!

Josh Schwartz Pt. 2: Other tidbits: Georgina will be back, Lily won’t be pregnant, they know they’ve “made it,” blah, blah, blah.  He also disses the books!

PEOPLE: The layoffs are supposedly done but we don’t feel any better about the future.

Roger Ebert: Wrote on his blog about the decline of criticism and rise of celebrity puff pieces, but we like this response piece more.

Dixie Chicks: Sued by a man claiming he was defamed after singer Natalie Maines insinuated he was involved in his step-son’s killing.  Heavy stuff.

SIZZLED OUT: Shrek

STILL SIZZLING: This socialite thinks she’d be a great Tinker Bell.  Based on her past films, we’d say she’s anything but a fairy.

Choose a language, read the book and see the movie.  That's a direct order!

Choose a language, read the book and see the movie. That's an order!

Mark Ruffalo: The actor’s brother is criticially injured after being shot in the head!  And that’s pretty much all we know right now.  Sad.

Pete Wentz: Called newborn son Bronx “a happy accident.” This cannot end well.

Gossip Girl: Apparently one of the characters is preggers.  So is actress Kelly Rutherford (Lily).  Coincidence?

Kelly Ripa: What’s that we always say about tabloids?  Oh, yeah–don’t believe them!  The latest proof: Ripa’s rep is saying a National Enquirer cover story that she and hubby/hottie Mark Consuelos are getting a divorce “100 percent false.”  We imagined so!

Jessica Simpson: Reveals things to Marie Claire that we never knew (and probably didn’t care to) like her love of self-help books, her desire to take a class on religion and her collection of “lucky pennies.”  Maybe celebrities are just like the rest of us!  (Ha!)

Funny Or Die: What happens when celebrities make a “Prop 8 Musical”?  Hilarity and cleverness ensue, of course!  Among those featured: Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Chalke, John C. Reilly and much more!

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: Holocaust movies are usually stellar and this one was no expection.  We saw it last night.  Incredibly moving. The odds for an Oscar nomination are slim but it’s completely deserving.

Harry Potter: Think the books are finished?  Think again.  J.K. Rowling is releasing a spin-off, called The Tales of Beetle the Bard.  Necessary?  Probably not.  At least the profits–which, we’re sure, will be enormous–are going to charity.

Kanye West: With lyrics about his ex-fiance like “You spoiled LA girl” and “Tell everybody that you know that I don’t love you no more,” is his new album a little too personal?  All we know is we wouldn’t want to be Alexis Phifer right now!

Kid Rock: Thinks a music tour for the armed forces should count as community service.  No way, says the courts.  We’re torn:  it is a nice thing to do but something he’d likely do regardless of whether he had the CS punishment, right?

Kristen Stewart: Surely riding the wave of Twilight’s success, she’s just been cast as Joan Jett in a new biopic.  We don’t see ANY resemblance but stranger casting choices have been made.

Facebook: Lindsay Lohan has got a bone to pick with you (but not with MySpace, she’ll have you know)!  Apparently they shut down LiLo’s account, thinking it was a fake, and now she is PEEVED!
