The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

Jay Leno: Forced to cancel last night’s Tonight Show when an illness prompted him to go to the hospital.  What’s wrong?  Well, we don’t know but Jay will probably talk (or joke) about it when he gets back.

Roger Ebert: Planning a new movie review show, even though his illnesses have taken away his ability to speak.  Curious to see how this will work.

Bones: Motley Crue will guest-star in the season finale. And there I thought the Family Guy crossover was weird…

ABC: Gave “early pickups” to a dozen shows.  Not among them? Samantha Who or Scrubs.

CSI: Voted viewers’ favorite all-time show in a new poll.  Maybe that means we should watch it sometime?

SIZZLED OUT: Mike Tyson

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning a sister channel for the Barack and Michelle Obamas of the world.

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody: The British reality TV star passed away yesterday after battling cancer for less than a year.  Too sad for words.

Oprah: The big O rarely shares the cover of her magazine, but might be starting a new trend.  After featuring Michelle Obama on the April cover, Oprah will share another one with Ellen DeGeneres.

Bruce Willis: Got married this weekend–with ex-wife Demi Moore and her (hotter and younger) hubby Ashton Kutcher in attendance!  Love that some split families do actually get along!

TV Guide: Back with its own Web site now that they’re no longer affiliated with the still-running TVGuide.com.  This will be quite confusing!

Whoopi Goldberg: Speaking of TV Guide the magazine, Goldberg lashed out at them on an episode of The View last week for writing an unflattering piece on her style of dress.  Love when Whoopi gets feisty!

SIZZLED OUT: Dane Cook

STILL SIZZLING: This couple, 22 years apart in age, got engaged recently after more than 7 years of dating.

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Britney: Would you still go to her concert if you knew she was lip-synching the entire time?  ‘Cause, um, she is!

Miley Cyrus: In her new autobiography, she refers to ex-Nick Jonas only as Prince Charming.  Gotta love the mind of a 16-year-old!

American Idol: Not sure how we feel about voting for someone called Lil Rounds.  Are we just being name-ist?

HSM: Since no one from the original cast is likely to appear in the fourth film, MTV put together a “What’s Next” list for Zac and the gang.

Glamour: Has a very creative photo gallery of current celebs impersonating pop culture icons, including Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and even Michelle Obama.

SATC: The Daily Beast puts a hilarious spin on Sex and the City, given today’s recession-plagued society.  It is a fair question, though, to wonder if people will still want to view their excess in light of our current reality.

No Doubt: Offering their fans digital copies of every one of their songs with purchase of concert tickets for their upcoming tour.  Not a bad deal given the aforementioned recession.

Facebook: The planned new features look very Twitter-like.  Amping up the competition, eh?

SIZZLED OUT: Two and a Half Men

STILL SIZZLING: This talk show host will give people a different view of her life if her autobiographical sitcom is made into a full series.

Kanye with his "baby sis"

Rihanna: Most publications are reporting, based on “sources,” that she was indeed the victim of Chris Brown’s alleged assault.  (The first to name her, perhaps unethically, was the Los Angeles Times.)  As such, PEOPLE has an article on Kanye West’s concern for Rihanna: he’s “devastated” and would do “any and everything to help her.”  He also says he thinks RiRi could be “the greatest artist of all time.”  That’s a little much, Kanye.  You can stop now.

Obama: The Mrs. will be only the second First Lady in history to be featured on the cover of Vogue.  The first: Hillary Clinton.  We would’ve guessed Jackie O!

Obama Pt. 2: Gave the Huffington Post the honor of being the first online publication to be called upon in a White House news conference.  Will SIZZLE be next?  (Hey, we can dream, can’t we?!)

Grey’s Anatomy: Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are as good as gone.  Apparently it’s just a matter of “when.”

Adam Sandler: If this doesn’t mean hilarity, we don’t know what does.  Sandler will star alongside Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade in a yet-to-be-titled movie.  It’s gotta be funny, right?

Queen Latifah: Not best known for her singing but the girl does have a voice. She’ll prove it later this month when shes sings  the classic “I’ll Be Seeing You” at the Oscars.

Future TV: A new report argues that, in the future, we’ll have the capability of watching TV through contact lenses.  Tattoos that allow us to feel the character’s emotions may also be possible. Sounds bizarre.  And incredibly intriguing!

My Network TV: In its own futuristic move, network is planning to stop being, well, a network.  Instead it will just have two hours of syndicated programming each week night.  The rest will likely be paid programing a la infomercials.  As long as it includes ShamWow, we’re in!

Sports Illustrated: If the cover model (Bar Refaeli) for the Swimsuit issue is going to pull her bottoms down, couldn’t they at least make sure she didn’t have any tan lines? Or is that supposed to be hot or something?

Celeb Mags: No wonder we can’t get hired!  The grocery line staples are suffering from major losses right now.  Not that we didn’t already know that.  And not that we wanted to work for tabloids, anyway.  PEOPLE (our dream job!) was the only mag to grow!!!!

SIZZLED OUT: Nick Cannon (Mariah Carey)

STILL SIZZLING: A first-time survey by Forbes ranked this actor, known for his sitcom and movie blockbusters, as “Hollywood’s most valuable,” meaning he is the best at “ensuring the financial success of film projects.”

Do you see any resemblance?

Do you see any resemblance?

SAG: Best quote of the night goes to Meryl Streep, who said “I didn’t even buy a dress!” while expressing her shock that she won best actress in a drama for Doubt.

Drew Barrymore: Ready and willing to make a Charlie’s Angels 3.  We never saw the first two!

Prince Harry: Cancel the royal wedding!  The heir to the throne split with his girlfriend of five years.  The brightside: ladies, you are this much closer to one day being queen!

Obama: No word from the president yet but the Mrs. sure ain’t happy that Ty is releasing dolls that look just like First Daughters Sasha and Malia.  More important: what do THEY think?  Bet they love it!

Molly Ringdwald: Now that she’s preggers with twins, her TV daughter won’t be the only one having a baby on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.  Makes for a great storyline, no?

Rumer Willis: In a new interview, Willis opens up about how Ashton Kutcher went from being her favorite posterboy to her stepdad.  Awkkkkwardddd.

SIZZLED OUT: Patrick Swayze

STILL SIZZLING: This soon-to-be Broadway star is torn about doing a movie version of her mother-daughter TV series.  We say go for it!

Forget Spiderman.  There's a new hero in town!

Forget Spiderman. There's a new hero in town!

Patrick Swayze: In the hospital with pneumonia.  This can’t be good.

John Travolta: Is it wrong that we have such intimate details of his son’s memorial service when Jett himself wasn’t even a celebrity or public figure?

Golden Globes: Not airing til Sunday night but PEOPLE wants you to get jealous now by reading about all the planned celeb parties.

Neil Patrick Harris: Doogie and the rest of the How I Met Your Mother cast not only extended their contracts but more than doubled their salary.  Not bad.

The View: The co-hosts were on a special panel held by the New York Times.  Why?  We still don’t know.

HSM: KayCee Stroh (the pop and lock it girl) got married today.  Zac and Vanessa were not present.

Blagojevich: Finally impeached but still not resigning.  Makes for another awesome animation by the Chicago Tribune.

Obama: Featured in a special issue of the The Amazing Spiderman comic.  Apparently Obama himself is a comic book collector.  Who knews?!

Obama Pt. 2: Everyone seems to think Michelle will have this huge impact on fashion.  We don’t see it happening but maybe that’s just because we didn’t live through Jackie O?

Miranda Cosgrove: The up-and-coming tween star will get to scope out her competition when she hosts MTV’s countdown of the top 12 teen “cribs.”  Insert your own tween/crib joke here.

Facebook: There’s a war on nipples.  ‘Nuff said.

Which do you prefer?

Which do you prefer?

90210: The “competition” with Gossip Girl continues, thanks primarily to the media.  How about we choose neither and go with the original Beverly Hills, 90210 instead!

TCM: Beyond moving tribute to all the wonderful actors we lost this year.

The Hills: They’re cursing us with syndication.  Lord help us!

Obama: Last month we showed you what Michelle might wear to the inauguration. Now we’ve got some options for the big man himself!

SIZZLED OUT: One Tree Hill (Felix)

STILL SIZZLING: Important announcement tomorrow!
