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?

Who remembers this show?

Who remembers this "game" show?

American Idol: The show made history last night (Idol history, that is) when the judges used their veto rule for the first time ever.  Who did they save from elimination?  Click here to find out!

David Archuleta: The former Idol finalist will be touring this summer with Demi Lovato.  That noise you hear is tweens screaming at the top of their lungs.  Get used to it.

Diddy: Proving once again that, yes, he can do everything, the mogul has signed on to appear in another movie.  Does he ever stop??

TV: Apparently the Brits love U.S. television.  They ranked their 50 favorite American shows, with some surprising results.  Reaper..really?!

Harry Potter: The release date for the next film, due out this summer, has been moved up by a whopping 2 days.  It will now open July 15th–a day very near and dear to our heart!  And yet, we still won’t go see the movie!

GSN: This June the Game Show Network will air the first-ever Game Show Awards, honoring series past and present.  Among the wide range of nominees: Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, The Amazing Race and…Singled Out?!  Let’s play a new game: which one of these things is not like the other?

SIZZLED OUT: Tori Spelling

STILL SIZZLING: We’re just full of Idol news today!  This winner, arguably one of the show’s least-popular, is returning to the tube with a reality show.  He/she can probably use the money!

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!)

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!
