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.

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Obama: It was only a matter of time before a political cartoon relating to our new president caused outrage.  Freedom of the press?  Low blow? Undecided how we feel.

Solange: Beyonce’s little sis had a little scare yesterday when she passed out and woke up in the hospital.  She took to her Twitter to tell everyone the problem was just dehydration.  So is this the future of PR?

Oprah: Caught part of an episode today and saw she was communicating with guests via Skype.  So is the future of talk shows?

Oscars: If you’re not into the nominated movies (and believe us, it’s possible!), here are three other reasons to watch: Zac Efron, Miley and Robert Pattison.  Still not convinced?  Yeah, we didn’t think so.

The Hills: One of the shows that will be the subject of panels at this year’s Paley Festival.  The Hills?  Seriously?

MC Hammer: Getting his own reality show on A & E.  Didn’t know he had 5 kids!  But also not really surprised…

Katherine McPhee: In addition to appearing on an upcoming episode of Brothers & Sisters, the former American Idol contestant will do a guest stint on CSI.  Looks like someone has a case of the acting bug!

USA Today: We like this headline–‘Lost’ and ’24’: Simple titles, complex, brilliant shows.

Facebook: A recent uproar about Terms of Service changes may have been quelled but it’s still worth reading what happened and who was behind it.

SIZZLED OUT: Justin Guarini

STILL SIZZLING: This popular former game show host admits he’s not one of its “loyal” viewers.  Guess he doesn’t want to come on down to TV set.

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!)

Wish him a happy birthday!

Wish him a happy birthday!

Lost: Premieres tonight.  Too bad we never jumped on the bandwagon.  It’s probably why we can’t enjoy this Lost/Heroes spoof.

Lost, Pt 2: But whether you watch the show or not, The New York Times has fascinating read on the guy in charge of keeping track of every single character and plot development.

Mad Men: Here’s another we haven’t gotten into.  But it’ll be back for a new season!  Never too late…

Ashlee Simpson: Who’s more desperate?  Ashlee and babydaddy Pete Wentz or CSI for employing them?

Oscars: We’re only a day away from the nominations and we finally know who will be doing the big reveal: Forest Whitaker!

Shia LaBeouf: Though he never faced charges from his summer crash, his license was still suspended for refusing a sobriety test.  Know what that means?  One year of being chaffeured around!

Jennifer Hudson: As news surfaced that she’ll perform at the Grammys, the alleged killer of her relatives plead not guilty to murder.

Obama: There’s no doubt that the question of our generation will be where were you when he was inaugurated?  But The St. Petersburg Times points out some other key and relatively recent historical events covered by the media.

Facebook: Had more than 1.5 million status updates related to Obama yesterday.  Wonder what Twitter had?

Twitter: They probably did pretty well, at least according to this.

Spongebob Squarepants: It’s been 10 years since we first met he who lives in a pineapple under the sea.  Nickelodeon is celebrating with a documentary.

TMZ: Large TV audience —-> constant episodes—-> spin-off —-> more terrible TV.  Any questions?

STILL SIZZLING: This ABC star confirmed today that her husband–and father to her two young twins–is suffering from cancer.

Idol's new judge is getting married!

Idol's new judge is getting married!

American Idol: Back tonight.  Will you be watching?

American Idol Pt. 2: New judge Kara DioGuardi announced today that she’s engaged.  Randy Jackson is the only other married judge currently on the show.

American Idol Pt. 3: Yes!  David Cook and Kimberly Caldwell broke up!  This means we still have a chance!

Jennifer Garner: We have a name for daughter number two.  And we don’t like it one bit.

Howie Mandel: In and out of the hospital for an “irregular heartbeat.”  Maybe Deal or No Deal is just too exciting for him?

Prison Break: As expected, the show won’t be back next year.  We all can admit the show has run its course.  That said, we have no idea how it’ll end! And why do they still call it canceled when the shows execs and actors even say they don’t want to continue?  Mutual decision, people!  Canceled does not convey that!

Josh Holloway: The Lost star told PEOPLE some pretty disturbing details about he and his wife being held at gunpoint in 2005.  Never want to imagine what that’s like.

Allison Sweeney: Life just got even busier for The Biggest Loser host and longtime Days of Our Lives star: she gave birth to another child!

As The World Turns: If you missed yesterday’s show, you missed a lot. Gay characters Luke and Noah, who caused a firestorm when they kissed on the show more than than a year ago, finally had sex.  Of course nothing more than shirtless making out was shown but it’s still a big step forward.

Vogue: Insiders are speculating that putting Blake Lively on the February cover is a sign of how bad things are for the mag.  Not sure we get it, but whatevs.

Facebook: It’ll take another year but the social network could outpower MySpace.

Hey baby! Rock steady!

24: Friendly reminder that the 2-hour prequel airs tonight on Fox.

Lost: TV Guide says there’s a subliminal message in the trailer for the upcoming season.  Anyone figure out what it means?

Michelle Williams: In an interview with Newsweek, the actress says how she struggled–and still does–in the months since Heath’s death.  The article is heartbreaking.

Josh Schwartz: Says he hopes Gossip Girl will be in its 22nd season in 20 years, then says he’s kidding.  Somehow, we don’t think he is.

SAG: An actor’s strike is looming.  There will be tears.

No Doubt: After a baby-making and solo-project filled hiatus, the band is getting back together for a summer tour.  Hella good!

Twilight: Having such a great opening weekend, the next installment just got the green light.  We’re pretty sure we won’t see that one, either.

Gawker: A fun look at the celebrity couples that “boggle the mind and tug at the heart.”

Seinfeld: The show lives!

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Wintour (Vogue)

STILL SIZZLING: Which celebrity had this to say about her upcoming film: “I wish it was ‘She’s Just Not That Into You’! Unfortunately, it’s ‘He’s Just Not That Into You.’ The other would be more empowering.”  Considering her love life lately, this attitude comes as no surprise.

I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

I'm man enough to admit this: I'm addicted to gossip blogs!

The CW: We guess they’re going for a guest star bonanza: last night, Cyndi Lauper popped up on Gossip Girl and tonight’s Privileged promises an appearance from Perez  Hilton.

Speidi: How I Met Your Mother officially jumped the shark.  Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are guest-starring.  Like these two need any more television exposure!

Lost: Can a very complicated show become simpler thanks to musical recaps?  You decide.

50 Cent: Namedrops…blogs?  Yep.  Perez, Gawker and more.  At least he has fairly decent taste.

Keith Olbermann: Can you cover an election and not actually vote?  Yes, says Mr. MSNBC.

PEOPLE: The staff cuts have begun.  There goes our future. We feel like crying.

SIZZLED OUT: Ben Still and Chris Rock

STILL SIZZLING: The set of this investigative series went ablaze last week.  No injuries, thankfully, and maybe they’ll get a new plotline out of it!
