Sounds yummy to us!

Sounds yummy to us!

24: Really don’t understand what the Obama administration has to do with 24 but maybe we don’t watch enough to know?

Obama: Inspired the new Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor, Yes Pecan.  Get it?!

The Simpsons: In the process of making an episode written by and starring Seth Rogen.  We may actually have to tune in for this one!

Nickelodeon: Their answer to High School Musical–called Spectacular–will air in February.  Noteworthy fact: the film’s choreographer has also worked with Madonna and Britney!

Rumer Willis: The eldest daughter of Bruce and Demi will be Miss Golden Globe at the awards show tomorrow night.  As the Daily Beast asks, how will this affect her career?  “Will it Die Hard?  Like a Ghost?”

Charles Barkley: Was in fact over the legal limit when he was arrested for DUI last month.  Consequently, he’s “taking” a leave of absence from his sportscasting gig.

The Real World: Salon makes a great point: how come it took this long for the show to include a transgendered person in the cast?  Oh, yeah.  Because it’s no longer cutting edge!

Jossip: Has an interesting article examining the possible futures of CBS.  In their words, “own the world or crash and burn.”

SIZZLED OUT: Burger King

STILL SIZZLING: Chace Crawford and his pretty face star in this rising singer’s new video.

Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Soon this all will be just a bad dream!

Paris Hilton: At first “sources” were saying that she and Benji Madden are no longer together but we weren’t sure whether to believe it.  They made huge declarations of their love as recently as last month.  Turns out, the Associated Press got official confirmation from Hilton’s publicist.  You win some, you lose some…

Miley Cyrus: Wants to be on a reality television show beacause they’re “crazy” and it would be cool “to be in a really nice house with cameras following me around.”  Lucky for her, MTV is casting for season 22 of The Real World.  Be careful what you wish for, Miley!

Rob Lowe: Chinese delegates, in California to discuss global warming with the governator, got the pleasure of witnessing Lowe film a scene for Brothers & Sisters.  Lowe even got them directors’ chairs and headsets.  What an inefficient use of time!

Gawker: Categorizes the 4 different ways magazines have been killed lately.  Funny and sad at the same time.

OK! Magazine: They’re practically the only mag out there hiring.  Too bad we don’t want to work for them!  (Yes, we know one day we will regret saying that!)

Jossip: The aforementioned regret has already begun.  Internships at some pretty desirable mags are now for sale, as in YOU PAY TO DO THEM.  This truly is a “New America.” One in which we stay in bed under the covers all day.

Soap Opera Digest: You know times are bad when a publication starts asking for “volunteer writers.”   At least they’re not auctioning the spots off to the highest bidder!

24: The two-hour telepic, airing Sunday, is a “dry-run” for a full-length feature in theaters.  Ratings and DVD sales will be the deciding factors.

Blink-182: Mark Hoppus admits to talking a lot lately with former bandmates Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge.  The best news: a music reunion, though not yet discussed, isn’t totally out of the question!

Beauty & the Geek: May have a second life on MTV, with D-list celebs participating as the beauties.  Hard to believe Ashton Kutcher is involved with this crap.

AR2: What if there was a second American Revolution?  That question is the subject of a new series in the works at FX.  The “incendiary” plot will revolve around college students who stage a revolt and try to re-define the meaning of patriotism.

Judd Apatow: His next movie won’t be out til next summer at the earliest and it’s already getting press play.  We’re not surprised considering, a, his track record and, b, the stars lined up (Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Schwartzman and wife Leslie Mann).

SIZZLED OUT: Josh Schwartz

STILL SIZZLING: This actress spent an hour in the hospital after getting sick on a plane.  Realizing the best days of our career were behind us would make us sick, too.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story.

He can handle terrorists but prison's a different story!

Obama: If you name it, they will buy.  Assuming you = Obama.  After he referenced a book about FDR during his 60 Minutes interview, bookstores and buyers are scrambling to find out which book exactly it was.

Obama Pt. 2: Does the First Lady’s body type make you wanna stand up and cheer?  This writer does, giving praise to Michelle’s derriere.

Newsstands: Speaking of butts, should they (as featured on raunchy mags) be prominently displayed on newsstands next to other more “respectable” publications?  What ever happened to the First Amendment?

Theme Songs: How much do they really matter?  Apparently enough to warrant a top-40 countdown.

TiVo: It’s the gift that keeps on giving!  Soon you’ll be able to use it to order pizza!

Kiefer Sutherland: One of the 24 star’s complaints about jail: no smoking.  Oh, the horror!

Lipstick Jungle: We thought it was canceled.  Brooke Shields says no.  Fans send lipstick to network.  In sum: totally bizaarre.

Fox News: They’ve set up a Facebook page.  Totally uncool.

Rihanna: Had 8 singles from on album on the Billboard charts!  Ri-dic!

GQ: Why have a man of the year when you can have MEN of the year?  Leo, Phelps, Obama, and Mad Men’s John Hamm.  Not too shabby.

Mickey Mouse: We’re not sure if this makes us feel young or old.  Mickey turned 80 today!

Seth Rogen: He really likes making pornos.  Zack and Miri was just the tip of the iceberg.  Rogen is working on a new show for Showtime about…making pornos.  Classy, as always.

Dan Lyons: The Newsweek writer is having a hissy fit over the resignation of Yahoo’s CEO.  Apparently Lyons, in an interview just last month, was told that wouldn’t be happening.  It’s called spin, Lyons.  You of all people should know about it.

Robert Murdoch: Ouch!  The media titan is blaming the industry’s decline not on the economy but the suckiness of editors and writers.

Natalee Holloway: The case has been reopened.  Maybe we’ll actually get answers–and closure for the family–this time around.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Both have moved on...to co-stars.

Jennifer Hudson: The boy found earlier today was positively identified as Hudson’s nephew.  The growing enormity of this tragedy has left us speechless. 

Julianne Hough: So it turns out it wasn’t just a stomache after all.  The 20-year-old will have her appendix removed as part of treatment for endometrosis, a disease affecting the uterus and surrounding organs.  Our only previous experience with endometrosis?  When Kelly was diagnosed with it on (the original) 90210.

Obama: Another assassination attempt against the presidential candidate has been pre-emptively foiled.  Are we the only ones who think they will increase ten-fold if he’s actually elected?

DWTS: Is Cloris a success because of her age or her personality?  And can both be considered ‘sexy’ qualities?  Just thinking about this gives us the heebie-jeebies but the Chicago Tribune doesn’t seem to mind.

Apatow and Co.: The relationship between Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith is quite incesutous.  Turns out, that’s also what makes it so great.  We should start a fan club.

Chad Michael Murray: Revealed a lot of juicy, previously unconfirmed news in an interview this morning.  He and the much-younger Kenzie (a former OTH extra) are still engaged and will likely marry in North Carolina.  He has no problem working with ex-wife Sophia Bush–especially since she’s with fellow co-star James Lafferty!  And the only thing stopping a seventh season of One Tree Hill is the network’s sign-on. Very, very interesting.

Economy: The reason networks are still airing low-rated shows like Knight Rider and Terminator: The  Sarah Connor Chronicles.  Great, so we’ll be broke AND un-entertained.

Trista and Ryan: As they await the arrival of baby number two, the couple is considering a return to reality television.  We have little respect for parents that want to subject their kids to that environemtn.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

A, um, glimpse into Zack and Miri's pornography adventure.

CNN: A comedy show on CNN?  It’s coming, and will be hosted by D.L. Hughley.  Says the network: “When you watch as much news as our audience does, there comes a time you just want to stop and laugh.”  As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.  Pretty true considering the current state of our country.  Go for the giggles!

Seth Rogen: His new flick–Zack and Miri Make a Porno–is running into some marketing problems.  Apparently a lot of places don’t want to advertise something so risque.  That only makes us want to see it more!

Project Runway: Picked its fifth winner last night.  This is getting old.

World Series: Rapidly approaching but the end might be getting farther.  MLB says the sixth game might be delayed due to Obama’s purchase of air time.

CW: Stepping up their game with a whole slew of guest stars for November sweeps–including Perez Hilton?!

The WB: Our new favorite site.  Watch full episodes of OTH, Everwood, The O.C., Smallville, Friends.  The lists gone on and on!  You MUST check it out!

More Crashes: Sadly, two more accidents happened this week.  Both Blake Lively’s dad and Gale Harold (of Desperate Housewives) were both injured in car wrecks.

Kanye West: What’s a good way to demonstrate the raw, natural quality your new album?  If you’re Kanye, that means having 30-plus completely naked women sitting on stage as the album plays.  We think the connection is a bit of a stretch.
