Real-life lovebirds!

Real-life lovebirds!

Obama: Not even the president can stand in the way of American Idol.  Though Obama said he wants primetime coverage this week for a press conference, Fox is refusing to give it to him.  The reason?  The conference could cut in to time scheduled for the Idol results show.

Fox: Here’s something the network IS willing to do: hold a contest to find the next best script writer.  If that means less reality shows, then that’s fine with us.

Slumdog Millionaire: Know how to make a great movie even better?  Have the two leads fall in love!  Slumdog’s Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are in a relationship, Patel’s mother confirmed.  Too cute!

Wolverine: News flash–superheros (or rather, the actors that play them) are not infallible.  The planned Mexico City premiere for Wolverine has been canceled due to the spread of the deadly swine flu.

Saved by the Bell: Gotta give Jimmy Fallon credit for trying to stage an SBTB reunion on his show.  Love this segment, which so closely paraodies one of the episodes, it’s kind of scary…in a good way!

YouTube: Does the phrase “shoes, betch!” mean anything to you?  If it does, you have to check out the latest video by “Kelly,” the character responsible for Shoes and Text Message Break-Up.

Gawker: It looks pretty but it’s really quite sad.  Gawker put together an image of all the recently-folded magazines.

SIZZLED OUT: Eminem

STILL SIZZLING: This singer and her ex say they’re modeling their second go-round on long-term couples like Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russel.

The next Peter Parker and Mary-Jane?

The next Peter Parker and Mary-Jane?

Justin Timberlake: Will be a guest on the first episode of Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show, airing Monday.  Don’t know about you, but that’s not enough to get us to watch.

Schwarzenegger: Who said he was done with Hollywood?  The governator will be making a cameo in a Sylvester Stallone film.  That seems like a good use of his time.

David Archuleta: Blogged about filming a guest spot on Hannah Montana and said “Miley was a cool person to hang out with.”  By next week, the tabloids will be calling them a couple.

Gilmore Girls: The final season, arguably its worst, is finally coming to syndication.  You can watch it this June on ABC Family.

Spider-Man: A Broadway musical version is definitely happening, with a targeted opening date of early 2010.  Possible casting: Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess, the latter of whom we ADORE.  Coincidence: their Across the Universe director, Julie Taymor, is behind the musical.

Wheel of Fortune: Our episode airs tomorrow night!  Check your local listings for channel and time.

SIZZLED OUT: Ronald Reagan

STILL SIZZLING: This movie is being remade.  But giving you a HINT would give away the answer!

Is this story really deserving of an EW cover?

Is this story really deserving of an EW cover?

Lost: We’re starting to regret never jumping on this bandwagon.  Our chances will further be diminished once American Idol starts airing opposite it in March.  Great.

Rachel Bilson: We were rooting for her to get back with Adam Brody but we doubt that’ll happen now that she’s engaged to Hayden Christensen.

Jimmy Fallon: There’s a lot riding on him when his NBC late-night show finally starts airing.  After all, does he really want to go down in history with these failures?  We don’t think he’ll be able to hack it, but we’re a little biased since we’re not Fallon fans in the first place.

Reality TV: Believe it or not, the much-maligned genre does something well, the Los Angeles Times wants you to know.  It includes a lot more diverse characters than scripted TV.  But here’s hoping that will change with the Obama era!

Entertainment Weekly: It was bad enough when Twilight dominated the mag’s covers before and during the film’s release, but again now?  So. Over. It.  Which is kind of funny, considering we were never into it in the first place!  The TV Addict’s tongue-in-cheek cover idea is so much better!

Gawker: TIME listed them as one of the most overrated blogs.  Not surprisingly, Gawker disagrees.  (But we think we ALL can agree the spot given to PerezHilton.com is most certainly deserving!)

Fashion Week: In honor of the industry’s most important week of the year, take some time to check out Jezebel’s collection of hilarious runway-shows-gone-wrong videos.  Priceless.

Wheel of Fortune: Our episode doesn’t air til the end of the month but they’re already promoting it!  If you recall, it will be the show’s 5,000th episode. We’re famous by association!

SIZZLED OUT: Salma Hayek

STILL SIZZLING: More engagement news!  This hairy Idol contestant revealed this week that he’s getting married this summer.  (And no, it’s not Sanjaya!)

Who knew they were friends?

The Dark Knight: Haven’t seen it yet?  Well, you’re in luck.  The box office smash will return to theaters in January to, um, smash the box office.  Or you could just buy the DVD instead.

Jimmy Fallon: If you’re curious to see how he’ll do as the new host on Late Night, NBC is offering a taste every weeknight at 12:30 a.m.  on its web site.  There Fallon will star in video blogs meant to draw viewers in before he actually appears on the show itself in another 5 or so months.

NBC: Will a MAJOR shakeup at the top bring back some must see TV?  One can only hope.

Full House: Supposedly John Stamos and others want to bring it back.  Will it be a fuller house now or something?

Washington Post: Making the bold claim that this is one of the hottest television seasons in terms of eye candy.  Discuss.

Survivor: Auctioning off a trip to the set–oops, we mean, deserted locale–to two “lucky” viewers.

Oprah: What if you followed very bit of advice given out on her show?  Well, then you’d end up like this girl.

America Ferrera: Will host a special “conversation” with soon-to-be Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  The point of the event is to get rid of Clinton’s campaign debt.  Does that mean no one’s getting paid for this?

SIZZLED OUT: Paris Hilton

STILL SIZZLING: Wanting to look like your favorite celeb–and even going under the knife to do so is becoming increasingly common.  These two box office babes are among the most requested.  Meow!

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

One of the cutest--and apparently most influential--tots around

Obama: Is it offensive to rewrite The Jefferson’s theme song with the new first family in mind? An elementary school principal in Tennessee is taking a lot of heat for doing just that. To be fair, the song is pretty catchy.

Obama Pt. 2: Inauguration plans are already underway. Not known yet is which music superstars will get to perform but E!Online is already rounding up the troops. (No, not those troops.)

NBC: Developing a new show called Making Friends With Black People. Yeah, cause that isn’t offensive at all.

Lipstick Jungle: Brooke Shields wasn’t lying! NBC either never canceled the show at all or, at the very least, is giving it another chance. Take two, everyone!

Jennifer Aniston: The chica just can’t catch a break. The latest: Alec Baldwin called kissing her on 30 Rock “painful.” Aw, leave the poor girl alone! Losing Brad was bad enough.

South Park: The show isn’t ending til 2011 but we already know the format: another full-length movie. Lucky us. Or not.

Dreamgirls: Embarking on a tour sans the famous names that made it such a success.  Broadway could be next.

Forbes: Okay, they’ve officially taken their most influential lists too far. Most Influential (celebrity) Infants is just so not necessary. But, for the record, the adorable Shiloh Jolie-Pitt took the top spot.

The Roots: They’ll be the house band when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Late Show. Guess that’s more interesting than a band plucked from nowhere.

Miley Cyrus: Says she can’t predict the future (no, really??) but wants Hannah Montana to continue “as long as it can.” How much is Disney paying her to say that?

Cars 2: It’s coming but, sadly, without the late Paul Newman. We’ll see Doc Hudson again, though the creators still haven’t figured out how.

Meh: It’s one of our favorite go-to words and now it’s officially in the dictionary. And, by the way, you can thank The Simpsons for that. Or just, you know, go meh.

Fall TV: If by some chance you actually liked one of the canceled shows, this handy list suggests alternatives that don’t actually suck.

Arianna Huffington: The blogger extraordinaire promises to raise funds to keep investigative journalism alive and well. Entertainment journalism never gets any love.

Facebook: How far is too far? In a new interview (conducted over instant message!), Mark Zuckerberg says he dreams of a day where the social networking site is even more personal than it currently is. We thought that already happened. It’s called The Patriot Act.

Variety: Is it really Oscar season if there’s no campaigning? What, you didn’t know the studios actually shell out tons of cash for ads to sway the Academy’s votes? They do. (Just like real politics!) But not anymore. Dun dun dunnnnnnnnn.

Journalism: So there’s no future in magazines. And now the blogging future is looking bleak, too. Good thing we gave up yesterday.

SIZZLED OUT: Mark Cuban

STILL SIZZLING: Riding the wave of superhero flicks, X-Men: First Class will be written by this wunderkind who is best known to teen girls.
