Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Battle of the Blondes Part Deux?

Daytime Emmys: Unveiled the nominations this week with some very interesting choices–or lack thereof: no noms for The View or soap icon Susan Lucci and very few for Guiding Light which needs all the help it can get these days.  Sniff sniff.

Pink: Confirmed that she and Carey Hart are back together.  Makes us very happy. They just seem like a good fit.

The Hills: Back in the day, we were quite obsessed with the Kristin vs. LC fight over Stephen Colletti.  (For the record, we wanted him with LC!) So it’s quite interesting to hear that Kristin will take Lauren’s place on The Hills.  And yet, we still won’t watch the show…

Jay Leno: Here’s an interesting theory: because not everyone likes the funny man and won’t want to be subjected to him as early as 10pm, more viewers will switch to cable channels.  Don’t see why they just wouldn’t flip to another broadcast channel…

SIZZLED OUT: Wanda Sykes

STILL SIZZLING: This iconic reality show winner is being released from jail after evading income taxes on his prize winnings.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

David Cook: Less than a month after announcing he’d participate in a charity run on his ill brother’s behalf, Cook made another announcement yesterday: his brother passed away after a 10-year battle with brain cancer.  Too sad for words.

TIME: Entertainment figures ranging from Tina Fey to Zac Efron made TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people.  Also included: the ladies of The View and Jay Leno.

Jay-Z: According to MTV, the rapper is pleased a recent show demonstrated “racial unity” since it was a joint bill with him, Kelly Clarkson and Third Eye Blind.  We’re pretty sure, though, if he wants it to have an impact, a show like that is going to have to happen more than once…

Robert DeNiro: Did you know his twin sons were born via surrogate?  Quickly learning that lots of celebs have gone that route and SJP is far from first.

SIZZLED OUT: Paula Abdul

STILL SIZZLING: This animated series could make it to the big screen–if anyone finds the time to do it.  Let’s hope it’s not canceled (again) in the meantime!

The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

Jay Leno: Forced to cancel last night’s Tonight Show when an illness prompted him to go to the hospital.  What’s wrong?  Well, we don’t know but Jay will probably talk (or joke) about it when he gets back.

Roger Ebert: Planning a new movie review show, even though his illnesses have taken away his ability to speak.  Curious to see how this will work.

Bones: Motley Crue will guest-star in the season finale. And there I thought the Family Guy crossover was weird…

ABC: Gave “early pickups” to a dozen shows.  Not among them? Samantha Who or Scrubs.

CSI: Voted viewers’ favorite all-time show in a new poll.  Maybe that means we should watch it sometime?

SIZZLED OUT: Mike Tyson

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning a sister channel for the Barack and Michelle Obamas of the world.

The latest example of Pixar genius

The latest example of Pixar genius

Chris Brown: The New York Times has a really interesting piece exploring why teens might be siding with him in the Rihanna case.  The court of law may decide his legal fate, but these kids get to decide whether to make or break his career.

Jennifer Lopez: Joined (ironically?) by a bunch of young C-list stars in a West Side Story photo spread in Vanity Fair.

Obama: Made some good quips with Jay Leno last night, but do people want a president that’s funny and taking time out for late-night appearances?  Or does that make him seem more “real”?

Family Guy: Here’s a nomination for weirdest cross-over in TV history.  Stewie will interact with David Boreanaz’s character on an upcoming episode of Bones.

VH1: Bringing back one of their old staples, Behind the Music.  Which is interesting considering they don’t seem to do much with music these days.  So far only Lil’ Wayne and Scott Weiland have been announced as the biography series’ subjects.

Pixar: The creators of Wall-E will have the honor of opening the prestegious Cannes Film Festival with their newest film, Up.  With their track record, it’s bound to be a hit.

Twitter: The staff at Good Morning America is so happy about their Twitter use that they released a statement saying how they more followers than competing news programs.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s what’s most important.

SIZZLED OUT: Kanye West

STILL SIZZLING: This comedian isn’t laughing now that he watched his own brother be indicted for stealing his money.

At least he LOOKS funny!

At least he LOOKS funny!

Natasha Richardson: In critical condition after a skiing accident.  Our favorite Natasha movie: The Parent Trap!  (Yes, the one with Lindsay Lohan.  Don’t judge!)

Obama: Going on The Tonight Show Thursday for the first time since he became president.  Good way to reach the masses or not the place for a head-of-state?

Zac Efron: Took some VERY scandalous photos for Interview Magazine.  What did Vanessa have to say about this?!

DJ AM: Seeking $20 million in damages for injuries, physical and otherwise, in the September plane crash with Travis Barker. Can’t say we blame him but throwing money at a problem doesn’t exactly fix it.

Don Imus: The controversial but very successful radio talk show host announced yesterday that he has prostate cancer.  Ironically, he’s spent a great deal of his life working with cancer patients, especially children.

Fall Out Boy: Bringing 50 Cent on tour with them.  Something tells us they don’t quite appeal to exactly the same audience…

MTV: Tapped Andy Samberg to host May’s movie awards.  Not necessarily a bad choice but we never really found his style of funny, well, funny.

SIZZLED OUT: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

STILL SIZZLING: This niche channel is changing its name–ever so slightly–in hopes that’ll become “less geeky.”  Yeah, good luck with that!

barbie

A far cry from today's Barbie!

Chris Brown: Even though critics have urged Nickelodeon to revoke his Kids Choice Awards nominations, the network says the competition and voting will proceed as planned.  Wrong message to send to kids or what does one have to do with the other?  We’re very torn.

DWTS: Newsday is a bit “incredulous” that The Bachelor’s Melissa performed so well the other night despite being asked to join the competition last minute.  The article makes some interesting points but who really expects truth in reality television anymore?

Kelly Clarkson: Idol’s first winner admits she’s never fallen in love. How is that possible when little Miley Cyrus says she has dozens of times?

Jay Leno: Doing a free stand-up concert in Detroit for the unemployed.  Says Leno: “Who’s got money for entertainment these days?”  So true, Jay.  So true.

Conan O’Brien: Leno’s replacement is getting some funny endorsements from Tina Fey, Adam Sandler and other big-name stars.  Curious to see if the ratings stunt pays off when his new show premieres in June.  Still a long way off.

K-Rock: Rock and roll isn’t here to stay if you live in New York.  Later today, the radio station is changing to the Top 40 genre. That means no more Metallica and no more shock jocks Opie and Anthony.  The station’s previous switch from rock to talk radio failed and the company offered fans a mea culpa.  Maybe second time’s charm?

Barbie: Horrible narration aside, this video provides an interesting look at how Barbie has changed over the years.  Kind of made us want to go digging through our collection!

Power Rangers: Not sure if this should make us feel old or young, but the classic children’s series will no longer make new episodes.  Probably a good thing since every season after the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sucked.  That’s right–we said it.

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Tickets to this Brit’s concert sold out in just 7 seconds. Imagine what it would’ve been like if computer sales existed back in his group’s heyday!

Do not date him!

Says Katy Perry: Do not date him!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe she seemed sad during her Superbowl performance because she was forced to lip synch?

Superbowl: If you were a Comcast subscriber in Tuscan, AZ., your football broadcast was interrupted by a 30-second porn clip.  And here everyone thought Janet Jackson’s Nipplegate was the worst that could happen!

Superbowl Pt. 2: The media industry has serious problems when it can’t even afford to send the editor of Sports Illustrated to the biggest football game of the year!

The View: Heading to LA for a special week of episodes meant to “revitalize” the show.  Among the guests: Miley Cyrus, Jay Leno and…Heidi and Spencer, who show’s producer admits he’s obsessed with.  We feel sorry for him.

Academy Awards: This year’s telecast will be designed to appeal more to a “moviegoing culture.”  We’re not sure what that means but guess we’ll find out on Feb. 22!

Diddy: Came to the profound conclusion that “hip-hop is in a recession.”  ‘Cause, you know, the rest of us are doing so well…

Katy Perry: Seems she has serious beef with ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy.  She’s advising girls to stay away from boys that “just want the milk but don’t want to buy the cow.”

Demi Lovtato: Warning her fans that she may “wear less black” as she matures.  We could’ve told you that!

Twitter: We love micro-blogging and all but this is a little too much: Erykah Badu tweeted while she was in labor!

SIZZLED OUT: Kyle XY

STILL SIZZLING: This famous singer–and big football fan–got a Superbowl-themed surprise party from his actress girlfriend.
