Hugh Jackman...all wet.

Hugh Jackman...all wet.

Fall TV: Can’t deny the season has been a major disappointment.  Every year we think it will be better and every year it, well, isn’t.

Hugh Jackman: In a new interview with Playboy, he admits not only did he wet himself on stage once, but a woman also ran up to the stage and flashed him!

Justin Timberlake: So Is JT still saying New York is the realest city?  He might not think so now that he and his restaurant are being sued by employees for back wages and tips.  Tsk, tsk.

Israeli Politics: Did an Israeli Prime Minister candidate steal Obama’s web site design?  It sure looks that way.

Obama: The president-elect will truly bring change to America: fireside chats via YouTube.

Facebook: So they won’t be making layoffs but they still won’t reach their goal of 1,000 employees.  A hiring freeze isn’t necessary when there isn’t anyone that wants to be hired!

SIZZLED OUT: Family Guy and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

STILL SIZZLING: This hip-hop superstar has given the media a lot to talk about lately.  The latest: being arrested (and not charged) again (!) for an altercation with a papparazzo.

We know we're not one to talk, but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

We know we're not one to talk but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

John Mayer: Jennifer Aniston sent some praise his way, and now he’s doing the same for her.  He told PEOPLE: “It’s really nice to have somebody in life have your back.  That girl knows me … so whether I go to bed alone or not, to have somebody who knows you in this world, that’s a really nice thing.”  Sweet or gag-inducing?

Paula Abdul: More disturbing information is being released about the shocking death outside the Idol’s home.  All it really shows: too little action taken too late.

Joe Jonas: After several weeks of bad press thanks to ex Taylor Swift, the middle Jo Bro used his MySpace to set the record straight.  This is getting a little too Degrassi for our liking.

Hollywood: Cutting back on the holiday party extravagance and we don’t feel bad one bit.

The View: For the very first time the show is number 1 in the daytime ratings but now that the election’s over we doubt’ll last.

Changeling: We still haven’t seen this movie, and though this article kind of spoils it, we’re even more fascinated now that the real-life mystery has been solved.

Hilary Duff: The former Lizzie McGuire signed a deal with NBC to develop and star in a new TV show.  No news yet if it’ll be part-cartoon.

Obama: The first sit-down is coming and it’s with 60 Minutes.  Expect it to air as soon as this Sunday.

Lip-Syncing: Don’t try it in China.  Soon it’ll be against the law!

Wall-E: When the hit comes out on DVD next week, there’ll be a short film starring Burn-E.  Yeah, we don’t remember him either.

Michael Moore: The filmmaker was originally planning a sequel to his Fahrenheit 9/11 but instead will focus on the economy.  New times, new problems, more movies.

Justin Timberlake: Called New York City the “realest in the world.”  Is realest even a word?!  And what makes NYC any more real than the thousands of others?

Can history PLEASE repeat itself?

Can history PLEASE repeat itself?

SATC: Sarah Jessica Parker is clarifying co-star Kim Cattrall’s announcement yesterday of a Sex and the City sequel.  “All the deals are not done yet,” SJP says.  We’ve never thought of Carrie as a party pooper before but we might have to reassess that view.

Britney: How’s this for a letdown: Brit Brit did appear on-stage with Madonna.  Just not at the same time as Justin.  Disappointing but we remain hopeful for a future reunion.

OTH: We are RUNNING to get the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features a multi-page article on One Tree Hill!  Did you know OTH gets better ratings that Gossip Girl?  Damn straight, it does!

American Idol: The new season starts January 13.  Let the countdown begin!

Grey’s Anatomy: The show needs some positive buzz right about now and this might get it for them: they’re planning a February cross-over with Private Practice.   These are usually quite cheesy, though, so we’re curious to see how it’s gonna work.

Chicago Tribune: The official election may be over but the rumor of it isn’t.  The Trib has come up with joke covers showcasing different results.  Pretty funny.

NYT: The Times are taking some steps into the future: first with their own social network, and also with Times Extra, which will link to rival publications.  Which papers will follow suit?

SIZZLED OUT: The Simpsons

STILL SIZZLING: This old fellow is giving one of his many ex-girlfriends away to be married…a mere few weeks after they split!

Our dream gift!!!

Our dream gift!!!

SATC: There WILL be a Sex and the City sequel!  The always dishy Kim Cattrall has confirmed rumors that have been buzzing for months.  Upon hearing this news, we couldn’t help but wonder: what’s left to tell?

Britney: We’ve been waiting for this day!  Brit Brit and Justin are getting back together!  Sort of.  Madonna has recruited the former couple to do a number on stage during her current tour.  Will sparks fly?  WE CAN ONLY HOPE!

Eliot Spitzer: Won’t face charges in the prostitution scandal that forced him to resign as governor of New York.  The state found no evidence of him using government funds, but isn’t just the fact that he even used a prostitute enough?  Isn’t that illegal?

Disney: Think Disney products are just for kids?  Think again.  Mickey and company provide a wide range of goods including…a $3,000 wedding gown and cashmere sweaters?  Yes and yes.

Melissa Etheridge: The singer is putting a new spin on ‘no taxation without representation.’  She says since Proposition 8 has banned marriage for gay people, “I am taking that to mean I do not have to pay my state taxes, because I am not a full citizen.”  A little bit of a stretch, no?

Samantha Ronson: Added her two cents the Prop 8 debate and she actually gave a pretty good analogy.  She pointed out the craziness in passing an animal-rights proposal but banning gay marriage: “yes, i am glad that the chickens will have more room and better conditions as they wait to die,” she wrote on her MySpace, “but i just think it’s frightening that people show more compassion for tomorrow’s dinner than for the chef.”

90210: Mattel will release 90210-inspired dolls next September similar to the ones made during the series’ original run.  We are very perplexed: a) the new 90210 sucks and is far from a hit and soooo not kid-friendly–why make dolls based on it? and b) what makes anyone think the new 90210 will still be around next September?  Did we mention it sucks?  And lastly, if anyone has the original dolls, we’re still looking for a complete set!

Thriller: Is the Michael Jackson song/video coming to Broadway?  Could be. Could also be a major disaster.

Goodbye Tina, hello baby!

Goodbye Tina, hello baby!

Amy Poehler: Expect her to be out of SNL for a while.  She gave birth yesterday to a little comedian.

Jennnifer Hudson:
Used her MySpace blog to thank her fans for their support and well-wishes.  Also made a heartfelt plea for the return of her still-missing nephew.

Obama: Sent condolences to Hudson and family.  Publicity stunt or heartfelt concern for a fellow Chicagoan?

Anne Pressly: The Arkansas news anchor was severely beaten in a botched burglary last week.  She has since died of her injuries.  Too much death lately.  Let’s hope for a better November.

Anchorage Daily News: The major Alaskan newspaper has endorsed Obama.  That should tell you something.

Denis Leary: Not too long ago we told you Leary was having a war of words about autism.  His new topic?  His right to say gay slurs.  We have a feeling he’s going to come out of this 0 for 2.

Gossip Girl: Turns out the cast has gotten in trouble for leaking spoilers.  Oh well.

SIZZLED OUT: Justin Timberlake/Jessica Biel

STILL SIZZLING: The exec of this cult show got so angry at fans’ comments about a recent episode that he just released a statement defending his creative decisions.

We actually love the leggings AND the hair.  Good goin', Linds.

We actually love the leggings AND the hair.

DJ AM: Will make his first post-crash DJ appearance tomorrow with  Jay-Z.  Good for him!

90210: Ratings from DVRs significantly boosted the show’s viewership.  The downside?  It means no one cares to watch the show the first time around.  Can’t say we blame them.

Justin Timberlake: JT is in a election-state-of-mind.  He attended an Obama rally and performed…wait for it…VOTE IN A BOX!

Blake Lively: Also apparently an Obama fan, as is boyfriend Penn Badgley.  The two star in ad set to run on the CW, MTV and Comedy Central.  Do celebs really influence how a person votes??

Lindsay Lohan: Launched her leggings line.  Yes, leggings.  And named after none other than Marilyn Monroe.

Madonna: Is it cool to wear part-shoe, part-gun on your feet?  The Madge apparently thinks so.
