Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

John Travolta: Three months have passed since his son Jett died.  PEOPLE is marking the bitter anniversary with a cover story on how the Travoltas are doing.

Zac Efron: His first Funny or Die video launched yesterday and, well, we didn’t find it funny at all.  Maybe Zac just can’t do comedy?  We’re eager to see 17 Again.  Then we’ll decide.

Hugh Jackman: Quite peeved that early versions of Wolverine hit the internet and we don’t blame him.  But, to be honest, though, it probably won’t hurt the box office–or his paycheck–all that much.

Oprah: See, she CAN have a negative effect!  Innocent people across the country are being duped by fake e-mails suggesting O might give them a million dollars.  Oh, how we wish it were true!

Pushing Daisies: How’s this for bittersweet: the show is still canceled but ABC will at least air the remaining episodes this summer, along with what’s left of Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Guess it’s better than never knowing what was going to happen?

SIZZLED OUT: Bob Saget (Full House, Surviving Suburbia)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer whose career longevity is only matched by that of his rock-solid marriage was just named in someone else’s divorce suit!

And another one bites the dust...

And another one bites the dust...

PEOPLE: Another predictable cover: Barack Obama on Inaguration night.  At least it’s not as flashy as the other O covers out there.

Oscars: After shutting out The Dark Knight from all but one category, the Chicago Tribune wonders if the award show’s ratings will suffer.  Is there really any use in speculating, though?  We’ll find out soon enough!  (In one month, to be exact!)

NBC: As ratings continue to dive, the Peacock network is looking to reband itself (think: Must See TV).  We’ve got no ideas.  How ’bout you?

Obama: Television ratings estimates of the inaguration could be way off, says The Washington Post, since Nielsen doesn’t take into account all the people watching on the web, in school or at the office.  So, in reality, this probably was the most-watched program in history!

Obama, Pt. 2: Apparently the White House isn’t too up-to-date on the technology front.  How is that even possible?  Or acceptable?!

Sex and the City: Now that the sequel is supposedly a “go” (once again!), everyone’s wondering which of the supporting cast will be back.  Evan Handler (Charlotte’s hubby) says he hasn’t been approached yet and jokes (at least we think he’s joking!) that they could kill him off!

Katy Perry: Says give her celibacy or give her death.  Think she got the quote confused?

Backstreet Boys: Did you know Brian Littrell’s son suffers from Kawasaki disease, the same thing that afflicted Jett Travolta? And we never even heard of it before this month!

TEEN: So first they stopped home subscriptions (several years ago) and now the magazine is folding altogether.  Seventeen, you really are queen!

SIZZLED OUT: Michael Cera (Arrested Development)

STILL SIZZLING: This ailing-actor is planning a memoir on his film career and “life journey.”

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.

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Think anyone did this to her while she was preggers?

Jennifer Garner: Gave birth yesterday to daughter number two.  No word yet if the name will be another crayon color.

John Travolta: Predictably, John, Jett and Kelly Preston are on the cover of this week’s PEOPLE.  Will probably be a big seller.

American Idol: Telling people not to believe a letter they may receive in a mail claiming they’ve won prize money.  Gotta love scams.

Nip/Tuck: Got a scathing review from the Sun-Sentinel.  While we wouldn’t be quite as harsh, we agree the show doesn’t seem as fresh and cutting edge (no pun intended) anymore.

Sarah Palin: After praising her daughter and soon-to-be son-in-law for working hard, word comes that new father Levi Johnston has quit his job after a newspaper discovered he wasn’t eligible for the position.  Ah, investigative journalism at its finest!

The Real World: The Brooklyn edition premieres tonight.  Kind of over it.  How ’bout you?

iTunes: Changing their pricing so that songs cost differently depending on how “popular” they are.

Forbes: T’was their turn for yesterday.  Lucky them.

The Atlantic: Wrote a piece speculating on what would happen if The New York Times went out of business and, let us tell you, it ain’t pretty.

SIZZLED OUT: Lindsay Lohan (Samantha Ronson)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer is offering a contest where fans can submit videos to air during her performance at the Grammys.  Will they try it and will they like it?

The comic book version looks nothing like this.  Who knew?

The comic book version looks nothing like this. Who knew?

John Travolta: Jett’s official cause of death is seizure disorder.  Doesn’t make it any better.

DWTS: Co-host Samantha Harris says her dream contestant would be soon-to-be Oscar host Hugh Jackman.  Can’t see that EVER happening.

TV Guide: Has an awesome calendar keeping track of the 71 (!!!) winter premieres!

Seinfeld: You can watch it in HD…if any station buys the episodes first.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: It’s not a movie but will you settle for a new comic?

Newsweek: Don’t know what Antihero Overload is?  Example: Jack Bauer and co.

Facebook: Can you not use the words Palestine or Gaza?  Apparently so.  Thought they’d be the last ones to do any sort of censorship.

Twitter: Celebs aren’t the only ones on there.  A whole slew of newspapers are, too!

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Doth the lady protest too much? This gal is once again insisting she’s still with her significant other.

He's probably regretting that break-up right about now...

He's probably regretting that break-up right about now...

John Travolta: Posted a statement on wife Kelly Preston’s official site, thanking fans for their condolences and expressing their sadness.  We can’t even begin to imagine what they’re going through.

DWTS: Mario Lopez must be pissed!  His ex (and former dancing partner) Karina Smirnoff is engaged to fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  What a sordid love triangle!

Twitter: Major password-stealing virus making its way through.  Thankfully, we haven’t been affected so far.  (And you should follow us at @sizzlemaker!)

Facebook: Suing Power.com, a new site that lets users track their various social media accounts in one place, for copyright infringement.  Curious to see how this all plays out…

Broadway: At least 12 shows are closing in the coming weeks, though there’ll be new openings on off-Broadway.  Not the best situation but not the worst, either.

SIZZLED OUT: HBO

STILL SIZZLING: A much-talked about character is rumored to be returning to this hit CW show.

John Travolta: His only son with wife Kelly Preston died today at the age of 16.  A cause of death has not yet been determined.  The family was vacationing in the Bahamas.  Tragic.

Katy Perry: No longer with Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, according to PEOPLE.  Maybe she’ll kiss a girl next?

Slumdog Millionaire: Finally saw it.  Pretty good, but don’t see why it’s been named again and again the best of ’08.

The Reader: Incredibly moving.  Adding the book to our reading list.  You should, too!

EW: Even with today’s double feature, we still haven’t finished seeing all of 2008’s big pictures.  And yet entertainment Weekly is already scoping out the upcoming biggies for 2009.  We’ve got some work to do…

Ben Lyons: Everyone’s dissing him and his reviews but we ask this: are there any genuinely good and objective critics out there still?

Michael Cera: May play Gilligan in a big screen adaptation of Gilligan’s Island.  Don’t know about you but we like our Cera in quirky rom coms only, thankyouverymuch.

Vogue: Has the iconic fashion mag become “stale and predictable”?  The New York Times thinks so.  We’ve never been and never will be an Anna Wintour fan, anyway.

STILL SIZZLING: Despite protesting in a recent major interview that he’s single, this guy has been seen around town with a new lady.  But what will his ex say?

SIZZLED OUT: Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony
