No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

DWTS: Guess something good can come from being dumped on national television.  Melissa, now that she’s done with The Bachelor (in more ways than one) is rumored to be replacing Nancy O’Dell.  Guess we’ll find out when the season premieres tonight!

Ashlee Simpson: As if CSI wasn’t bad enough, Simpson is taking her acting skills over to the Melrose Place remake.  Is the show doomed now?  Or was it already?

Dakota Fanning: Officially joined the Twilight sequel, New Moon.  Guess her pale skin is an asset, then?

Demi Moore: Thank god for Twitter!  Otherwise we wouldn’t know Mrs. Kutcher fights with her TiVo and watches American Idol like the rest of us!

SIZZLED OUT: Vince Vaughn

STILL SIZZLING: It’s just not funny anymore.  This TV twosome called it quits…again.

Picture this digitized

Picture this digitized!

Critics Choice Awards: On Vh1 last night but it’s not even worth listing the winners.  Same old, same old.

CCA, Pt. 2: It is worth noting that Rooney was the first-ever house band.  How random is that?

CCA, Pt. 3: We love how, in “professional” things, Ludacris becomes Christopher Bridges.

CCA, Pt. 4: Quote of the night came from Jason Alexander, to Brangelina.  It was something like “Even if you don’t win, you get to go home with him and you get to go home with her, so it’s all good!”

CCA, Pt. 5: Who knew Richard Gere was a Buddhist?!  And hates the current administration so much?  Quite interesting.

Twilight: There’s a pretty funny spoof, High School Musical style, making it’s way around the net. You’ll probably appreciate it most if you don’t like Twilight or HSM.

Grey’s Anatomy: Getting its own videogame.  No idea why.

Smallville: Likely coming back for a season 9.  We didn’t even realize the show had been on for that long.  Time flies!

Melrose Place: Looking forward to the remake?  Well then you probably want to see where the original cast is now.

Cinemablend: Has a list of the 100 people “Most Likely To Die in 2009.”  Just so wrong…and yet, in some ways, probably right.

MTV: Should their website feature advertising for the morning-after pill? Sketchy line to cross!

DTV Transition: Worried about losing your signal when television goes all digital in February?  Congress may give you more time to make the change.  But make sure you make it!

SIZZLED OUT: The Mentalist

STILL SIZZLING: This fast-food chain is offering a deal: delete some of your Facebook friends and you’ll get a discounted burger.

this totally turns us on!

We admit it: this totally turns us on!

Tom Cruise: Admits he was “arrogant” in his infamous Matt Lauer interview.  We forgave him a long time ago, but we know we’re in the minority.

Madonna: Will pay Guy Ritchie between $72 and $96 million.  Well, which is it?  There’s a big difference between the two!

OTH: Hmmmm.  Supposedly even with a Melrose remake, One Tree Hill could get a seventh season–with Schwahn!  We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

Gossip Girl: The book series’ author hates the way the show depicts Aaron, Serena’s new beau.  Considering he gives us the creeps, we completely agree!

Prison Break: We watch and we watch and we’re still confused. Totally frustrating.

Rachael Ray: If you looked forward to the chatterbox having no voice for several weeks, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.  Surgery has been called off for now, as a new treatment for her sore vocal chords seems to be working.

The Crow: One of our favorite cult movies is being remade!  But we really can’t see anyone but the late Brandon Lee playing the lead!  Lee was killed during film when a real bullet accidentally dislodged from a prop gun.  So sad.

The Office: Here’s one more reason to watch the post-Superbowl episode: Jack Black will be on it!

Facebook: Decreased in value by more than $15 billion!  What do you think it’s worth?

SIZZLED OUT: Terminator

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete was just kicked off his team–more fallout from trash-talking a rival and former actress-girlfriend.

He will never NOT look good!

He will never NOT look good!

Michael Phelps: “Out of shape” but “having fun.” Can’t blame the guy.  That’s how we live!

Bush: Who knew throwing shoes was an insult?  We’ll have to try that sometime!

David Paterson: No idea why he was targeted on this week’s SNL.  Totally uncalled for.

The Media is Dying: One of our favorite Twitterers is getting some press play.  Love the irony.

OTH: Nooooooooo!  Why is Mark Schwahn signing on for the Melrose Place remake?  We don’t want anything to take him away from One Tree Hill!

Facebook: At Barnes and Noble yesterday, we saw a bunch of how-to books.  Still to come: a book on the social network’s founding–and possibly, a movie!

Gawker: Putting its own spin on the year-end top 10 lists with the worst pop culture bits.  Pretty dead-on except we actually liked 27 Dresses!

Chicago Tribune: Here’s a good test of journalism ethics.  The paper actually knew about the Blago stuff back in October but held off on going public to help the FBI.  That ended, obviously, this past week–too soon, if you ask the Justice Department who wanted them to keep quiet for longer.  Who was right and who was wrong?  Tough calls all around, we thinl.

SIZZLED OUT: Jesse McCartney

STILL SIZZLING: Christian Bale will have his hands full now that this movie series is moving forward.  And, no, it’s not a Dark Knight sequel!

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.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day. Sigh.

Tina Fey: Is Bristol Palin her newest babysitter?  The offer has been made by Mrs. Palin.  Fey’s response: “I was like, yeah, that’s exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do, at ‘SNL,’ is babysit the toddler of the lady that goofs on her mom.”  We’re just wondering if Bristol will even want to babysit her own toddler.

Redemption Song: American Idol for boozies, strippers and cons.  We kid you not.  Gotta love Fuse.

Obama: Pundits across America are weighing in on last night’s last-ditch effort by Obama to secure American’s vote.  But what about all the people that already voted through absemtee and early ballots?  Lost causes?

Phillies: MLB champs.  Notice how we didn’t say World Series champs.  Semantics, really, but how can you win a world championship when the whole world doesn’t have the opportunity to play?  The MLB is only in America, folks!

Jennifer Hudson: As expected, all the entertainment/gossip mags have Hudson-focused covers.  Curious to see how they sell and which one does the best.

Time Inc.: Laying off up to 600 staffers in the coming weeks.  Now how will we ever get a job there?!

TiVo: Got TiVo?  Now you got Netflix, too.  The two have married.  Applause all around.  Except for us.  We still don’t have TiVo.  Or Netflix.

SIZZLED OUT: Melrose Place

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor has walked the line for the final time?  He’s retiring at age 34!
