Meet Dorothy Gale

Meet Dorothy Gale

Sizzle: We’re back.  We know you missed us.  You can calm down now.

Lindsay Lohan: Her relationship with Samantha Ronson has never been anything less than bizarre.  Even though the restraining order reports are false, we wouldn’t be surprised in the least if either girl sought one.

Eminem: No better way to launch a comeback than to release a song and video taking potshots at practically everyone in the tabloids.  That’s Eminem for ya.

The Simpsons: MySpace is running a contest inviting fans to film their own couch gag.  Could see record participation for this one, we think.

Beverly Hills 90210: More than 10 years after it originally aired, season seven was released on DVD yesterday.  Who wants to bet that after all 10 seasons are done, they’ll make a complete series boxset and entice us to shell out even more money?

Oprah: Now that she’s done campaigning for Obama, O has turned her sights to the 2016 Olympics which, if she has her way, will be in our hometown of Chicago.  Honestly not sure if we want the Olympics here, so we can’t say whether the Oprah effect will be good or bad.

The Wizard of Oz: Getting a modern-day treatment for a new televisions series to be called Dorothy Gale.  Can’t see it having the same charm as the original, though.  To be fair, other Oz spin-offs (The Wiz, Wicked, etc.) have done quite well so this one might see some success, too.

SIZZLED OUT: Survivor

STILL SIZZLING: This one-time iconic sitcom dad–who is best known in real life for his foul comedy–returned to TV this week in another father role.

Scroll down to see when this classic episode first aired!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe we’re reading too much into it but her face just seemed so sad during her Superbowl performance, the first one since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew in October.

Bruce Springteen: The Boss, on the other hand, was overly enthusiastic, going as far as sliding across the stage…and slamming his crotch into a camera.  Just as funny: when he said “I’m going to Disneyland!”  Guess he forgot he was in Tampa and in Florida it’s called Disney World!

The Daily Beast: Their lookback at some of the best post-Superbowl programming includes a classic Friends episode with Julia Roberts and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s debut on Survivor.  Our favorite: Kevin and Winnie’s first kiss on The Wonder Years.

Britney: News broke late on Friday that she and her conservator (aka her dad) obtained restraining orders against Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi, the creepos who were in life back when it was going down the tubes.

Michael Phelps: So aside from the fact that smoking marijuana is illegal, we don’t see what the big deal is.  It’s such a common thing for people his age.  And it’s unfair that, because of his Olympic success, he’s been put on this pedestal in a role model-like position.  Cut him some slack!

Oprah: We have to wonder if hiring a former MTV CEO to head up her network is the best idea.  Something tell us MTV and the Oprah Winfrey Network won’t be going after the same audiences…

Obama: The other famous O is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and it’s quite an unflattering photo.  They made his head look huge!

Wheel of Fortune: If you watch all this week, you’ll see the contestants that we taped with!  Our episode, however, doesn’t air til the 27th.

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Faris (Chris Pratt)

STILL SIZZLING: ABC Family shook up their schedule by announcing 3 news shows–and the canceling of this cult fave.

Who knew they were friends?

The Dark Knight: Haven’t seen it yet?  Well, you’re in luck.  The box office smash will return to theaters in January to, um, smash the box office.  Or you could just buy the DVD instead.

Jimmy Fallon: If you’re curious to see how he’ll do as the new host on Late Night, NBC is offering a taste every weeknight at 12:30 a.m.  on its web site.  There Fallon will star in video blogs meant to draw viewers in before he actually appears on the show itself in another 5 or so months.

NBC: Will a MAJOR shakeup at the top bring back some must see TV?  One can only hope.

Full House: Supposedly John Stamos and others want to bring it back.  Will it be a fuller house now or something?

Washington Post: Making the bold claim that this is one of the hottest television seasons in terms of eye candy.  Discuss.

Survivor: Auctioning off a trip to the set–oops, we mean, deserted locale–to two “lucky” viewers.

Oprah: What if you followed very bit of advice given out on her show?  Well, then you’d end up like this girl.

America Ferrera: Will host a special “conversation” with soon-to-be Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  The point of the event is to get rid of Clinton’s campaign debt.  Does that mean no one’s getting paid for this?

SIZZLED OUT: Paris Hilton

STILL SIZZLING: Wanting to look like your favorite celeb–and even going under the knife to do so is becoming increasingly common.  These two box office babes are among the most requested.  Meow!

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Sean Penn: Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for the second time in two years.  Does a star’s political activities influence whether people pay to see his movies?  We’ll soon find out: his next flick, Milk, comes out in early December.

Brothers & Sisters: After a high-profile search for new character Ryan Walker, the execs have chosen someone with very little credits to his name: Luke Grimes.  We have no idea who he is but a quick Google search shows a 20-something guy with long-ish hair and some stubble.  Is this the next television heartthrob in the making?

Jennifer Hudson: Now that The Secret Life of Bees is in theater, we’ll see if the Idol alum can have 3 great flicks in a row.  And if not, there’s always that music career.

Survivor: Arguably the most successful show of the decade but the flame might extinguish soon.  Ratings are down, the economy sucks and ad execs are being more frugal with their money.  Good times.

Ne-Yo: Plans to star in a “music-driven romance” called Venice Beach.  Can being smooth and infectious in music translate to the big screen?  We’re doubtful.

Kevin Smith: Took to his blog to say how excited he is for Zack and Miri Make a Porno–and that he’s “really fat right now” and plans to lose a ton of weight after press for the movie is done.  Doesn’t he realize his size is one of the things that makes him so endearing and identifiable?

Phil Spector: He faces trial number two for allegedly killing actress Lana Clarkson.  The first trial, which ended in deadlock, lasted 5 months.  Can’t believe he–or Clarkson’s family–have to go through all that again!

Oprah: Available in Spanish for the first time in 22 seasons.  What took so long?!
