One of our dream romantic reunions!

One of our dream romantic reunions!

NBC: Unveiled its fall programming yesterday, with several new dramas and two comedies.  The network decided to delay an announcement about “on-the-bubble” shows like Chuck and My Name is Earl.

MTV: Movie award nominations, chosen by the fans, are out and Twilight leads the pack.  Considering fans also choose the winners, we’re gonna go out on a limb and say Twilight will bring home the most bronzed popcorn.

Jessica Simpson: Admitted in a new Vanity Fair interview that she hasn’t spoken to ex-hubby Nick Lachey “in years.”  And here we are, still waiting for them to get back together!  (The other couples we haven’t given up hope for: Brad & Jen and Britney & Justin.  Yes, we know we’re deluded.  Leave us be.)

Coldplay: Facing–and ignoring–accusations that they plagiarized melody for their hit “Viva la vida.”  Is there really any way to prove this?  So much harder with music than the written word.

David Hasselhoff: Fighting back rumors that he suffered a severe case of alcohol poisoning over the weekend. The former Baywatch actor has admitted to substance abuse problems in the past, but his lawyers maintain all is well now.

Eminem: Relying on rap to get him “high” now that he’s fought his pill addiction.  We’re rooting for him, especially for the sake of his daughter.

Disney: Would you be more likely to buy an avocado if it was a High School Musical avocado?  That’s the logic Disney is working on but we can’t see parents going that far.

The Onion: Satirical publications are just as screwed as the rest of them.  The Onion, which seems to be loved by everyone but us, will no longer have a Los Angeles edition.  Don’t really understand how they’re cutting out such a huge market, but what do we know?  We’re still unemployed!

SIZZLED OUT: Family Guy

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper admits to watching an episode of Gossip Girl or two–only to learn about his film co-star, Chace Crawford.

The subject of a new movie?

The subject of a new movie?

Beyonce: Subject to a “hoax” yesterday when a recording surfaced–on the Howard Stern Show, no less–reportedly of B singing quite poorly.  But her camp quickly denied it was real–and claimed it was great publicity!

Tom Cruise: Pays writers what for many of us would be a year’s salary just to retool scripts of movies he’s considering.  Where do we sign up?

Elizabeth Banks: The Zack and Miri actress will star in “a workplace comedy” called “Forever 21” but no word yet if it’s related to the clothing store.  Would be kind of weird if it isn’t, though, right?

Beauty & the Beast: Our favorite Disney movie is just the latest classic fairytale to be remade.  HSM’s Vanessa Hudgens will star in a modern retelling simply named “Beastly.”  Let’s hope it’s better than all the Cinderella re-dos.

Daily Beast: Has a short photo gallery on how shows hides actresses’ pregnancies.  Timely because of the Pompeo news.

Maureen Dowd: Love the ending to Dowd’s latest New York Times column about Twitter.  We think she’s only dissing it because everyone likes it.  Psht.

SIZZLED OUT: Fred Segal

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete who has been accused of domestic abuse in the past weighed in on the Chris Brown-Rihanna situation, saying that Brown is a “baby'” who can’t handle his emotions.

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Zac Efron: Absolutely loved the HSM skit he did on SNL this weekend.  Except for the anti-Semitic Walt Disney.  That part wasn’t necessary.

Eminem: Will be performing at the MTV Movie Awards, according to MTV’s Twitter acount.

Fast & Furious: After the record-breaking success (really!) of the franchise’s fourth installment, they’re now planning a fifth one!  Don’t think anyone expected this!

Obama: Love that the identity of his dog can’t even stay secret!  The news was leaked by an anonymous site before The Washington Post, given rights to the story, could report it.

RENT: We had the opportunity to see our favorite musical this weekend for the sixth time!  What made this performance so special?  It starred Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal back in the roles they originated more than 10 years ago.  And they were as amazing as ever!

Scott Peterson: Always was and always will be fascinated by the Laci/Scott Peterson case.  Really glad to PEOPLE did an update on the story.

SIZZLED OUT: Beyonce and Jay-Z

STILL SIZZLING: This singer praised her Rihanna for being a “cool chick.”  Did she kiss her, too?

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Britney: Would you still go to her concert if you knew she was lip-synching the entire time?  ‘Cause, um, she is!

Miley Cyrus: In her new autobiography, she refers to ex-Nick Jonas only as Prince Charming.  Gotta love the mind of a 16-year-old!

American Idol: Not sure how we feel about voting for someone called Lil Rounds.  Are we just being name-ist?

HSM: Since no one from the original cast is likely to appear in the fourth film, MTV put together a “What’s Next” list for Zac and the gang.

Glamour: Has a very creative photo gallery of current celebs impersonating pop culture icons, including Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and even Michelle Obama.

SATC: The Daily Beast puts a hilarious spin on Sex and the City, given today’s recession-plagued society.  It is a fair question, though, to wonder if people will still want to view their excess in light of our current reality.

No Doubt: Offering their fans digital copies of every one of their songs with purchase of concert tickets for their upcoming tour.  Not a bad deal given the aforementioned recession.

Facebook: The planned new features look very Twitter-like.  Amping up the competition, eh?

SIZZLED OUT: Two and a Half Men

STILL SIZZLING: This talk show host will give people a different view of her life if her autobiographical sitcom is made into a full series.

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Heath Ledger: His family plans on giving his Golden Globe trophy to daughter Matilda.  Rightfully so!

Slumdog Millionaire: One of the reasons ABC is considering bringing the hit show back.  Been there, done that?  We’re kind of over it…

Vanessa Hudgens: Now that HSM is long over (sniff sniff), Hudgens is trying to piggyback on to another series…Twilight.  What ever happened to ‘breaking free’?

Hilary Duff: Signed a development deal with NBC back in November and now actually has something to show for it.  Barely Legal will take on a whole new meaning!

NBC: Creating a panel of “leading women” (which apparently includes Tori Spelling) to help advertisers better market to females.

Mariska Hargitay: Word broke late yesterday that the Law & Order star has a “partially collapsed lung”…and it won’t impact her TV commitments one bit.  Surprising.  Collapsed lung sounds serious, no?

Til’ Death: Hasn’t died.  Who knew?!  Better question: who cares?

The Sopranos: 10-year anniversary.  Again, who knew?!  We feel old. (And the most important Soprano, James Gandolfini, of all has a new gig: Broadway!)

Shaquille O’Neal: Mentioned on his Twitter feed that he’s getting a doctorate in “human resource development.”  One more time, all together now: WHO KNEW?!

TMZ: You know something needs to be changed in the television industry when TMZ TV is the only show that had 52 weeks of original programming in 2008.

SIZZLED OUT: Charlotte Church

STILL SIZZLING: We’re headed to LA tomorrow to tape an appearance on this game show.  Good thing we know the alphabet!

Forget Spiderman.  There's a new hero in town!

Forget Spiderman. There's a new hero in town!

Patrick Swayze: In the hospital with pneumonia.  This can’t be good.

John Travolta: Is it wrong that we have such intimate details of his son’s memorial service when Jett himself wasn’t even a celebrity or public figure?

Golden Globes: Not airing til Sunday night but PEOPLE wants you to get jealous now by reading about all the planned celeb parties.

Neil Patrick Harris: Doogie and the rest of the How I Met Your Mother cast not only extended their contracts but more than doubled their salary.  Not bad.

The View: The co-hosts were on a special panel held by the New York Times.  Why?  We still don’t know.

HSM: KayCee Stroh (the pop and lock it girl) got married today.  Zac and Vanessa were not present.

Blagojevich: Finally impeached but still not resigning.  Makes for another awesome animation by the Chicago Tribune.

Obama: Featured in a special issue of the The Amazing Spiderman comic.  Apparently Obama himself is a comic book collector.  Who knews?!

Obama Pt. 2: Everyone seems to think Michelle will have this huge impact on fashion.  We don’t see it happening but maybe that’s just because we didn’t live through Jackie O?

Miranda Cosgrove: The up-and-coming tween star will get to scope out her competition when she hosts MTV’s countdown of the top 12 teen “cribs.”  Insert your own tween/crib joke here.

Facebook: There’s a war on nipples.  ‘Nuff said.
