One of our dream romantic reunions!

One of our dream romantic reunions!

NBC: Unveiled its fall programming yesterday, with several new dramas and two comedies.  The network decided to delay an announcement about “on-the-bubble” shows like Chuck and My Name is Earl.

MTV: Movie award nominations, chosen by the fans, are out and Twilight leads the pack.  Considering fans also choose the winners, we’re gonna go out on a limb and say Twilight will bring home the most bronzed popcorn.

Jessica Simpson: Admitted in a new Vanity Fair interview that she hasn’t spoken to ex-hubby Nick Lachey “in years.”  And here we are, still waiting for them to get back together!  (The other couples we haven’t given up hope for: Brad & Jen and Britney & Justin.  Yes, we know we’re deluded.  Leave us be.)

Coldplay: Facing–and ignoring–accusations that they plagiarized melody for their hit “Viva la vida.”  Is there really any way to prove this?  So much harder with music than the written word.

David Hasselhoff: Fighting back rumors that he suffered a severe case of alcohol poisoning over the weekend. The former Baywatch actor has admitted to substance abuse problems in the past, but his lawyers maintain all is well now.

Eminem: Relying on rap to get him “high” now that he’s fought his pill addiction.  We’re rooting for him, especially for the sake of his daughter.

Disney: Would you be more likely to buy an avocado if it was a High School Musical avocado?  That’s the logic Disney is working on but we can’t see parents going that far.

The Onion: Satirical publications are just as screwed as the rest of them.  The Onion, which seems to be loved by everyone but us, will no longer have a Los Angeles edition.  Don’t really understand how they’re cutting out such a huge market, but what do we know?  We’re still unemployed!

SIZZLED OUT: Family Guy

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper admits to watching an episode of Gossip Girl or two–only to learn about his film co-star, Chace Crawford.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

When healthy enough, Adam Cook traveled to see his younger brother perform on the Idol stage.

David Cook: Less than a month after announcing he’d participate in a charity run on his ill brother’s behalf, Cook made another announcement yesterday: his brother passed away after a 10-year battle with brain cancer.  Too sad for words.

TIME: Entertainment figures ranging from Tina Fey to Zac Efron made TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people.  Also included: the ladies of The View and Jay Leno.

Jay-Z: According to MTV, the rapper is pleased a recent show demonstrated “racial unity” since it was a joint bill with him, Kelly Clarkson and Third Eye Blind.  We’re pretty sure, though, if he wants it to have an impact, a show like that is going to have to happen more than once…

Robert DeNiro: Did you know his twin sons were born via surrogate?  Quickly learning that lots of celebs have gone that route and SJP is far from first.

SIZZLED OUT: Paula Abdul

STILL SIZZLING: This animated series could make it to the big screen–if anyone finds the time to do it.  Let’s hope it’s not canceled (again) in the meantime!

Sadly, now only two of these 'Girls' are still alive.

Sadly, now only two of these 'Girls' are still alive.

Speidi: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt marriedre-married, depending on how you look at it— over the weekend. Sure it’ll be on TV sooner or later.

Jamie Lynn Spears: Her babydaddy got into a serious accident yesterday, landing him in the hospital.  Thankfully, for his family’s sake, he’s expected to recover.

Bea Arthur: The world got a little bit less funny this weekend with the passing of this Golden Girl.  She was 86.

Twitter: Has Matthew Perry joined the celeb Twitter movement?  You decide.

Best Week Ever: Put together a list of the top TV cross-overs, including more than one Steve Urkel appearance.  Lots of classic moments and tons of memories–love it!

Spider-Man: Totally disappointed.  Thought the roles for the upcoming musical were pretty much set, but according to MTV, open auditions are being held throughout the country.  Hmmm…

SIZZLED OUT: BET

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper’s return to the mainstream will be buoyed by not one but two abums–even though the first one isn’t even out yet!  Talk about an addiction!

One more year until Woody and gang return!

One more year until Woody and gang return!

Heroes: Here’s why the ratings might be so bad: it’s one of the most pirated shows!  Well, at least now they know someone’s watching!

MTV: Entering the “Obama era,” the New York Times declared based on the channel’s move to more community-based programing.

Seinfeld: Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she’s game for a Seinfeld movie–if someone can find the money.  That’s the problem for everyone these days, isn’t it?

Oprah: Canceled what would’ve been the “Columbine episode” set to air yesterday.  Never heard of O canceling a show so last minute like this before.  We really think she did a disservice and we’re happy to see that some people agree.

Disney: The next installment in the Toy Story series might not be coming until 2010 but the Mouse House wants you thinking about it now.  They screened a teaser for the film at a recent conference, and plugged the upcoming 3-D editions of the first two films and–our personal favorite–Beauty & the Beast.

SIZZLED OUT: Matthew McConaughey

STILL SIZZLING: If there’s no Seinfeld movie, would you settle for a retooled film version of this 90s sitcom?

Who remembers this show?

Who remembers this "game" show?

American Idol: The show made history last night (Idol history, that is) when the judges used their veto rule for the first time ever.  Who did they save from elimination?  Click here to find out!

David Archuleta: The former Idol finalist will be touring this summer with Demi Lovato.  That noise you hear is tweens screaming at the top of their lungs.  Get used to it.

Diddy: Proving once again that, yes, he can do everything, the mogul has signed on to appear in another movie.  Does he ever stop??

TV: Apparently the Brits love U.S. television.  They ranked their 50 favorite American shows, with some surprising results.  Reaper..really?!

Harry Potter: The release date for the next film, due out this summer, has been moved up by a whopping 2 days.  It will now open July 15th–a day very near and dear to our heart!  And yet, we still won’t go see the movie!

GSN: This June the Game Show Network will air the first-ever Game Show Awards, honoring series past and present.  Among the wide range of nominees: Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, The Amazing Race and…Singled Out?!  Let’s play a new game: which one of these things is not like the other?

SIZZLED OUT: Tori Spelling

STILL SIZZLING: We’re just full of Idol news today!  This winner, arguably one of the show’s least-popular, is returning to the tube with a reality show.  He/she can probably use the money!

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Just needed to add some females to this post!

Zac Efron: Absolutely loved the HSM skit he did on SNL this weekend.  Except for the anti-Semitic Walt Disney.  That part wasn’t necessary.

Eminem: Will be performing at the MTV Movie Awards, according to MTV’s Twitter acount.

Fast & Furious: After the record-breaking success (really!) of the franchise’s fourth installment, they’re now planning a fifth one!  Don’t think anyone expected this!

Obama: Love that the identity of his dog can’t even stay secret!  The news was leaked by an anonymous site before The Washington Post, given rights to the story, could report it.

RENT: We had the opportunity to see our favorite musical this weekend for the sixth time!  What made this performance so special?  It starred Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal back in the roles they originated more than 10 years ago.  And they were as amazing as ever!

Scott Peterson: Always was and always will be fascinated by the Laci/Scott Peterson case.  Really glad to PEOPLE did an update on the story.

SIZZLED OUT: Beyonce and Jay-Z

STILL SIZZLING: This singer praised her Rihanna for being a “cool chick.”  Did she kiss her, too?

At least he LOOKS funny!

At least he LOOKS funny!

Natasha Richardson: In critical condition after a skiing accident.  Our favorite Natasha movie: The Parent Trap!  (Yes, the one with Lindsay Lohan.  Don’t judge!)

Obama: Going on The Tonight Show Thursday for the first time since he became president.  Good way to reach the masses or not the place for a head-of-state?

Zac Efron: Took some VERY scandalous photos for Interview Magazine.  What did Vanessa have to say about this?!

DJ AM: Seeking $20 million in damages for injuries, physical and otherwise, in the September plane crash with Travis Barker. Can’t say we blame him but throwing money at a problem doesn’t exactly fix it.

Don Imus: The controversial but very successful radio talk show host announced yesterday that he has prostate cancer.  Ironically, he’s spent a great deal of his life working with cancer patients, especially children.

Fall Out Boy: Bringing 50 Cent on tour with them.  Something tells us they don’t quite appeal to exactly the same audience…

MTV: Tapped Andy Samberg to host May’s movie awards.  Not necessarily a bad choice but we never really found his style of funny, well, funny.

SIZZLED OUT: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

STILL SIZZLING: This niche channel is changing its name–ever so slightly–in hopes that’ll become “less geeky.”  Yeah, good luck with that!
