Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

Yes, Hugh Jackman is this mad!

John Travolta: Three months have passed since his son Jett died.  PEOPLE is marking the bitter anniversary with a cover story on how the Travoltas are doing.

Zac Efron: His first Funny or Die video launched yesterday and, well, we didn’t find it funny at all.  Maybe Zac just can’t do comedy?  We’re eager to see 17 Again.  Then we’ll decide.

Hugh Jackman: Quite peeved that early versions of Wolverine hit the internet and we don’t blame him.  But, to be honest, though, it probably won’t hurt the box office–or his paycheck–all that much.

Oprah: See, she CAN have a negative effect!  Innocent people across the country are being duped by fake e-mails suggesting O might give them a million dollars.  Oh, how we wish it were true!

Pushing Daisies: How’s this for bittersweet: the show is still canceled but ABC will at least air the remaining episodes this summer, along with what’s left of Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Guess it’s better than never knowing what was going to happen?

SIZZLED OUT: Bob Saget (Full House, Surviving Suburbia)

STILL SIZZLING: This singer whose career longevity is only matched by that of his rock-solid marriage was just named in someone else’s divorce suit!

Asking for trouble!

Asking for trouble!

Chris Brown: Some radio stations are refusing to play his (arguably) hit songs, part of the backlash for his alleged assault on (as far as we’re concerned) alleged victim, Rihanna.  Is it fair for the stations do this?  We think not.  Innocent until proven guilty!  Everyone’s just running on gossip right now.

Jennifer Aniston: In honor of her 40th birthday (which was yesterday), PEOPLE put together an on-line gallery of their magazine covers that featured her.  Most interesting: all the ones that feature her and Brad!

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: The Daily Beast does its own tribute with a look at all the love lessons poor Jen should’ve learned from her movies!

A-Rod: In an article on how to save his reputation, The Daily Beast suggests staying away from Madonna.  We probably could’ve told him that!

Bruce Springsteen: Took to his blog to write a very lengthy post about his Superbowl experiences, including his now infamous crotch slam.  Not that we needed to be reminded of it.

ACMs: Nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards were revealed yesterday, with Carrie Underwood as the only female up for entertainer of the year.  Really, no other woman was worthy of consideration?!

Pushing Daisies: If you miss the underappreciated and prematurely canceled show, you can now catch it on TheWB.com!

Sirius XM: Not even a year since the satellite radio companies merged, and the conglomerate is already facing trouble.  The New York Times reports that the company will likely file for bankruptcy, and might lose big-name stars like Howard Stern and Martha Stewart.

Ticketmaster: Planning a merger of its own, with LiveNation.  But for it to actually happen, the companies have to prove they’re not breaking any anti-trust laws.

Digital T V: If you thought you caught a break when Congress approved a delay in the switch from analog signals, you may have been mistaken.  Almost 500 stations are still planning to make the change prior to the extended deadline.  Good luck everyone!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: This singer-actress recently got back together with her musician boyfriend–and now they’re engaged!  Guess she has a crush on him still!

Was this foreshadowing?

Was this foreshadowing?

Ashlee Simpson: Gave birth last night to a boy named Bronx Mowgli.  We have a feeling dad Pete Wentz picked the name.  At least he wasn’t kidding earlier this week when he said fatherhood was “imminent.”

PEOPLE: That Sexiest Man Alive issue will feature scratch and sniff.  Even WE are creeped out.

Reese Witherspoon: Now we know for sure not to believe any tabloid that says Reese and Jake are headed to the altar.  The star herself says she’s not ready to remarry now, if ever.

Jennifer Aniston: Admits she’s computer illiterate and thinks Facebook is like “dancing with the devil.”  Sure she wasn’t talking about Angelina?

Jennifer Aniston Pt. 2: Loves watching FRIENDS repeats.  Ego trip?  She also says she watches some of the episodes and doesn’t actually remember doing them or what they were about.   We never understand celebs when they say that!  We remember every little detail of every little episode and we didn’t even make the damn things!  What’s your excuse?

ABC: The ax has fallen on not one, not two but THREE shows: Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Is there anything left?!

CW: Did some cancellations of its own but none that we really care about.  Just the out-sourced shows that aired for a millisecond on Sunday nights.  In are repeats…of Jericho?  Weird.  That show was prematurely canceled itself!

Gossip Girl: To be honest, we don’t really understand this.  According to Ausiello, Connor Paolo (Eric) declined an offer to become a series regular yet will still stay on the show and somehow this is better for his career.  Whatevs.

SNL: People are speculating why Justin and Beyonce’s Single Ladies sketch isn’t available on-line.  Some say it’s JT’s fault because he wanted to be paid residuals.  Others say it’s just a “music clearance issue.”  How long til somebody caves?

SNL Pt. 2: Did last week’s show seem especially ‘gay’ to you?  Headwriter Seth Meyers was asked that very same question.

Heroes: The creator is blaming the show’s decline on DVR.  And now a TIME writer is taking him to task for not accepting responsibility.

Obama: Shows are seizing on the opportunity to name-drop the president-elect.  It’s actually kinda cool and makes them seem more real, we think.

Obama Pt. 2: The Washington Post takes an interesting look on whether it really matters if O has in fact quit smoking.

Roger Ebert: We love self-deprecation!  Ebert shows how good he is at it–and how he can be poignant at the same time–when he looks back on how his appearance has changed over the years.

Rosie O’Donnell: We LOVE her response to Babs’ insults on yesterday’s View.  Classic Ro.

Twitter: Now being used by Shaquille O’Neal.  Does that mean it’s time for us to stop?

SIZZLED OUT: Winona Ryder

STILL SIZZLING: This guy is the latest to be caught on camera with his pants down. But what will the queen say?!

Linsday, didn't you know there's a price to pay for bad ratings?  Get it--Price?!

Linsday, didn't you know there's a price to pay for bad ratings? Get it--Price?!

Britney: New York music station KTU has six tracks of Brit’s upcoming album.  Not gonna lie, we’re hoping for a full-fledged Britney comeback.

90210: People are already talking about next week’s ep.  The preview clip shows Brenda admitting to frenemy Kelly that she slept with Ryan, Kel’s current flame.  Hold up!  Didn’t Shannen Doherty say she didn’t want to do high school love triangle stuff again?  We call for a rewrite.

Lipstick Jungle: And now that this show is canceled, will Lindsay Price make an appearance on 90210?  If she does, Ian better be with her!

Mad TV: It’s a mad, mad world when this show is also canceled!  Or is it?

Pushing Daisies: Might be next on the chopping block.  And if it happens, creator Bryan Fuller says you can expect the series to be wrapped up in a comic book.  Oddly fitting for an odd show.

Monopoly: Coming to a theater near you.  How exactly, we’re really not sure.

Anthony Kiedis: Can a rock star’s childhood make for a red hot TV series?  That’s what this Chili Pepper thinks.  And HBO, too, apparently.  They’ve greenlit his life story as an hourlong drama.

Foo Fighters: Who knew Dave Grohl was such a foodie?  He and his bandmates will be guest judges on Top Chef.

Daniel Craig: Being James Bond is painful?  And here we thought the loads of money made up for that.

Ben Stiller: There could be a third film in the Meet the Parents series, Stiller says.  We wouldn’t object but we’re not sure who’s left to meet.

Facebook: One of EW’s entertainers of the year?  Really?  (Top honors go to Robert Downey Jr.)

Thomas Beatie: The pregnant man is pregnant again!
