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?

Plastic surgery can lead to very bad things!

Plastic surgery can lead to very bad things!

Chris Brown: One of the cover lines on the new issue of PEOPLE reads: Chris Brown Charged in Assault on Rihanna.  We’re a little disappointed with the choice of words because, if you ask us, it’s not been made clear yet that he’s been charged with assault.  We’ve been hearing different things about what making criminal threats actually means, and I imagine the mag’s lawyer approved the wording, but we still think it was a poor ethical choice.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Even Sesame Street is pulling the episode that he guest-stars in!  Ridiculous!

Usher: Details are slowly coming out about what went wrong with his wife’s plastic surgery.  Apparently not long after being sedated she went into cardiac arrest.  As horrible as that sounds, she’s reportedly doing much better now.

American Idol: Every season there’s drama surrounding some contestant and here it comes this time around: one of the previously-announced 36 finalists has been disqualified for unknown reasons.  Rumors suggest she had an inappropriate relationship–whatever that means–with some of the folks behind the show.

American Idol Pt. 2: MTV has a great run-down of the 36 finalists, Twitter-style.  Don’t know what that means? Join and follow us!

The Bachelor: The show will get a 14th season now that it has improved considerably in the ratings.  We say that’s only because of the single dad angle.

SNL: David Paterson, governor of New York, is upset again at the show’s depiction of him.  But isn’t anything–especially public figures–fair game on SNL?

The View: Classic quote from co-host Joy Behar: “I cook and I collect pots. I don’t smoke pot – I collect them. I’m not Michael Phelps.”

SIZZLED OUT: Mandy Moore (Ryan Adams)

STILL SIZZLING: This overseas band–quite popular here in the States–will appear on a late-night TV show for 5 nights in a row.  Let’s hope they make each performance like a beautiful day!

Making a killing at the box office

Making a killing at the box office

Golden Globes: Read our coverage here!

Entertainment Weekly: Gave Neil Patrick Harris such a glowing review for his SNL gig this weekend that they said he should host “forever”!

Gran Torino: We always feel good about ourselves when we’ve seen the movie that ranks #1 at the box office!

Bonnie Fuller: The tabloid editor thinks celebs are “cursed.”  Um, no.  It’s just their tragedies you hear about so much, thanks to the media.  Unfortunately, thousands of people die every day.

NYT: Suggests an iTunes-like format could save the newspaper industry.  Hooey, we say.

SIZZLED OUT: Jessica Alba (Cash Warren)

STILL SIZZLING: This 22-year-old singer gave birth to her second child this weekend.

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!

We want a reunion!

We want a reunion!

Jennifer Aniston: Says her GQ photo spread wasn’t to “make any kind of statement.” She’s lying, and we all know it but it’s okay because the statement was much-needed.

HSM: Disney won’t appreciate this: Zac and Vanessa taking pics with fans in what appears to be a sex shop!

Pete Wentz: Wrote on his blog that he doesn’t “want to go down that road” of selling Bronx’s baby pictures.  We have a feeling that will change eventually.

Hugh Jackman: Having a bittersweet month: deemed Sexiest Man Alive, Australia fails and now named the host of the Oscars.  Still a pretty good life overall, no?

Hugh Jackman Pt. 2: So this pretty much guarantees that Australia won’t get any Oscar nods.  They wouldn’t have a host whose movie is in contention, right?!

Lauren Graham: Our favorite fast talker/Gilmore Girl is coming back to primetime!  An untitled show is in the works on ABC.  Would love to see an Alexis Bledel cameo!

Laurence Fishbourne: Predictions of a rise in black actors on TV (thanks to Obama’s win) will get its first test this week as Fishbourne joins the cast of CSI.

Showtime: We think this will be a disaster but we know they don’t care what we think (but you do!  Thanks, guys!)  The cable channel is launching a show called “Way Out” where cameras film closeted gays telling the truth to their families.

Andy Samberg: Releasing an album with the rest of the Lonely Island boys from SNL.  We just don’t get the appeal.  Who wants to explain it to us?

Obama: Among the stars and musical guests expected at inauguration events:  Anne Hathaway, Sting, Tim Robbins, Ron Howard and Spike Lee.

DreamWorks Animation: Planning Madagascar 3 and movies in 3-D.

Newspapers: Will not be bailed out by the government.  For your First Amendment rights and ours, that is a good thing!

NYT: Would a merger with Google be the answer to their financial problems?  Only if you’re willing to throw away family history.

Want her face?

Want her face?

SNL: Why are people so surprised by the return of Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton?  Aside from the fact that Poehler recently had a baby, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of Clinton on the show since she accepted the media-heavy position of Secretary of State.

Twilight: The film franchise has hit its first stumbling block: Catherine Hardwicke and Summit have parted ways.  Hardwicke will not direct the sequel, and the reason allegedly goes deeper than a simple schedule conflict.

Kanye West: NOT on Twitter!

David Gregory: The worst kept secret of late is a secret no more.  NBC officially announced Gregory as the new host of Meet the Press.

Obama: Said on the aforementioned show he won’t be smoking in the White House.  So will that be the first promise he breaks?

Tribune Company: Bankruptcy is on the horizon.  You know what follows?  More lay offs. Blek.

Barbra Streisand: Forced to share face time with arch enemy President Bush as she was honored by the Kennedy Center.  Thankfully, no blood was shed.

Facebook: Beware of the Koobface virus!

PEOPLE: Redemption!  The New York Times public editor is criticizing the piece the paper ran last month bashing PEOPLE.  Turns out the NYT got some facts wrong!  Will a retraction follow?  We sure hope so.

NYT: Not sure we should trust them anymore (see above) but they’ve just released their list of the 10 best books of 2008.  We’ve read approximately none of them.

Roger Ebert: Has “had it” with years of top 10 lists.  So what did he do instead?  Made a top 20 list.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry

STILL SIZZLING: We’re turning the tables on you.  What juicy riddle do you have?  We’ll print the best one tomorrow!

Carnegie Hall-worthy!  Who woulda thunk it?!

Carnegie Hall-worthy! Who woulda thunk it?!

DWTS: Brooke Burke and Derek Hough were declared the winners last night.  We’re cool with that, though we also would’ve been happy if Lance won.

DWTS Pt. 2: Does life change after you’ve won the trophy?  Hardly.

Gossip Girl: Josh Schwartz has squashed yesterday’s news of a Lily and Rufus flashback show.  What he’s planning instead: webisodes all about Blair’s maid, Dorota.

Carson Daly: The TV host, known for getting stars to spill, has been keeping a secret of his own: he’s gonna be a dad!  Jennifer Love Hewitt and Tara Reid, you better get busy!

SAG: The actors’ strike is more likely to happen when you got big names like Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep supporting it.  Thanks a lot, guys.

NBC: Among the winter schedule changes: two SNL specials, more reality shows and a TV movie.  We doubt ratings will improve.

Family Guy: Seth Green (who voices Chris) and Carnegie Hall kinda seem like a mismatch, but we guess you gotta give the people what they want.  And what they want is a live reading of Family Guy scripts.  Go figure.

Reality TV: Here’s another reason to hate it: people are actually being diagnosed with Truman Syndrome, a type of paranoia where they (incorrectly) think their life is being documented by cameras.  If it wasn’t so sad, we’d probably laugh.

Thanksgiving: Forget the turkey.  All you need is a TV!  There’ll be marathons of faves like I Love Lucy, House, Fresh Prince, Arrested Development and lots more ALL WEEKEND!

90210: One of those aforementioned marathons will be on SOAPNet, with focusing on Kelly’s love life (creatively titled Kelly’s Leftovers).  Doesn’t get much better than that.  But it does get worse: we won’t have access to SOAPNet that day! Tragic.

MTV: Will have its own Inaugural Ball in D.C.  No worries if you can’t go;  they’ll also broadcast it on MTV’s 894328297312 channels.

SIZZLED OUT: Joey Fatone (NSYNC)

STILL SIZZLING: This tear drop-tattooed artist made the best album of the year, or so says Blender.
