I still matter!

I still matter!

Entertainment Weekly: Amidst more internal staff changes, Time Inc. claims the magazine will continue to publish.  Wonder if they had any fingers crossed when they gave that quote…

Susan Boyle: This may seem very mean but just remember we didn’t suggest it first!  PEOPLE is doing a poll on who should play Boyle in a biopic and Robin Williams is one of the options.  We do see a resemblance, not gonna lie.

Hulu: Partnering with Disney to show ABC and other affiliated shows like Lost and Grey’s Anatomy.  Your turn, YouTube.

John McCain: What we can only guess is an attempt to remain as relevant as his former running mate, Sarah Palin, the one-time presidential candidate will be host of a war-themed movie marathon on AMC.  Fail.

The Daily Beast: Put together a photo gallery of face masks inspired by the swine flu.  Some are pretty funny.  would love to see more!

SIZZLED OUT: Tyra Banks

STILL SIZZLING: This celeb hopes she won’t be judged for falling for a prank by Sacha Baron Cohen in the upcoming film, Bruno.

Who knew a night out with these two could be so dangerous?!

Who knew a night out with these two could be so dangerous?!

Obama: It’s probably too late to first have this argument now, but one debate still rages on:  Is Obama benefiting from the Huxtable effect or hurting from the Urkel effect?  If you don’t know what these things refer to, start watching TV Land and/or TBS immediately!

Ken Paves: The stylist to the stars–and Jessica Simpson’s BFF–says he’s “fine” after getting whacked in the head by a paparazzo’s camera during a night out with the singer.  The “accident” required nine stitches!

Jennifer Hudson: A heartbreaking funeral service took place yesterday.  What more is there left to say?

Grey’s Anatomy: It seems Shonda Rhimes is always taking flack for something.  This time its the “de-gaying” of the show with the firing of Brooke Smith, who played a lesbian, and the rewriting of another bisexual character.  Very odd, considering the show’s been relatively gay-friendly in the past.

Monday Night Football: Obama and McCain made (pre-taped) appearances last night.  We’re totally tired of these out-of-character, lets-just-get-some-votes cameos.  Hello election day!

90210: An upcoming storyline will revolve around one of the teens being preggers.  This will mark a purposeful shift to more issue-oriented episodes.  Note that this is exactly what the execs and stars of the new version criticized the original for.  Oh, the hypocrisy!

Steve Fossett: Tests on bones found near the adventurer’s crash site contain his DNA.  Take that, conspiracy theorists!

Heroes: In light of the show’s floundering ratings and the harsh reviews its received from critics this season, two of the producers have left the team.  Some say creative differences, others say they were fired.  At this point, though, word choice is hardly what matters.

SIZZLED OUT: Keith Olbermann

STILL SIZZLING: Will this actor bring an entourage on set with him when he directs a music video for Ne-Yo and The Game?

With a body like that, no wonder he was marathon-ready!

With a body like that, no wonder he was marathon-ready!

SNL: Their HSM and The View spoofs were pretty funny.  John McCain–not so much.

FNCU: We thought this was a joke.  It’s not.  You can apply to Fox News Channel University.  Don’t get too alarmed, though–it’s just an internship program.

Ryan Reynolds: Completed the New York City Marathon on behalf of “those who can’t,” namely sufferers of Parkinson’s Disease, something very near and dear to our hearts.

Nelly: Finally admitting to a years-long relationship with Ashanti.  The key to their relationship?  Having fun.  Ha!  If only it were that easy!

November Sweeps: It’s just about here!  Things to look forward to: Oprah on 30 Rock, Rosie’s variety show, the 24 movie and much more!  Woot woot!

The CW: Since the network seems fixated on remakes these days, some are calling for a Saved By The Bell spin-off.  We wouldn’t complain.  Or would we?

Def Jam: The executive vice president was found dead Saturday in an apparent suicide.  The exec, Jay-Z’s successor, was responsible for artists like Beyonce, Ciara and Young Jeezy throughout his career in the music business.  We’ve been saying it a lot lately and we’ll say it once more: too much death.

SIZZLED OUT: Simon Cowell

STILL SIZZLING: Which political pundit, spoofed on SNL this weekend, decided to crash the rehearsal just to see how Ben Affleck would depict him?

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

Rockin' out and looking pretty while doing it!

David Cook: Our favorite Idol EVER will be performing on SNL tomorrow night.  Meeting him last spring will forever rank as one of our all-time best days.

John McCain: Stealing Cook’s thunder and also appearing on SNL.  Psht.

Shanna Moakler: Travis Barker’s ex has given her first interview since finding out about his plane crash.  Last time she spoke, though, Travis said not to believe her.  So what will it be this time?  Fact or fiction?

Melrose Place: Despite persistent rumors, if the remake happens, it probably won’t be aided by current mega-creators Mark Schwahn (One Tree Hill) and Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl).  And thank god.  We want a seventh season of OTH, not a rehashing of a show that wasn’t very good to begin with.

Spider-Man 4: The flick, set to be released in 2011, has found itself a writer.  A Pulitizer award-winning, Julliard-trained one at that.  But we have to wonder: why are movies from the same series being written by different people?  What ever happened to consistency?

Newsday: Our hometown newspaper appears to be the latest victim of the revived Anthrax hoax.  Really, people, this is SO not funny.

Hugh Hefner: In a new biography–aptly titled Mr. Playboy–the media mogul’s life is given the up-close-and-personal treatment.  Silly us, we thought that’s been done before.  Many, many times before.

The cast of All My Sons

The cast of All My Sons

Katie Holmes: Her short guest stint on Eli Stone will impact the whole season.  And her Broadway show has officially opened.  I don’t think Mrs. Tom Cruise needs anymore ego boosts.

John McCain: Admits he “screwed up” by backing out of his Letterman appearance last week.  Let’s hope that isn’t something he ever has to admit again.

Travis Barker: Wrote on his blog that he should be coming home soon and can’t wait to be with his “babes.” We’re going to assume he meant babies and not, you know, babes.  Warning: There is a somewhat grotesque of his burnt hand at the bottom of the  entry.  Look at your own risk.

OTH: We thought we saw the last of Lindsey (Michaela McManus).  We haven’t.  Shit.

Gossip Girl: The author of the book series has both love and hate for the TV show.  Well, so do the rest of us.

Actors’ Strike: It’s becoming more and more likely as talks between SAG and the studios continue to break down.  Time to take precautionary measures: stock up your TiVo!

Lilo and Saman: Lohan’s publicist deliberately said recently they weren’t dating.  But when asked if they broke up, she said things are “fine.”  So which is it?

STILL SIZZLING: Which actors have been going back and forth this week about a not-so-little thing called autism?

SIZZLED OUT: Demi Moore, mother of Rumer Willis
