The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

The hardest working man in show biz. Yep, I said it.

Jay Leno: Forced to cancel last night’s Tonight Show when an illness prompted him to go to the hospital.  What’s wrong?  Well, we don’t know but Jay will probably talk (or joke) about it when he gets back.

Roger Ebert: Planning a new movie review show, even though his illnesses have taken away his ability to speak.  Curious to see how this will work.

Bones: Motley Crue will guest-star in the season finale. And there I thought the Family Guy crossover was weird…

ABC: Gave “early pickups” to a dozen shows.  Not among them? Samantha Who or Scrubs.

CSI: Voted viewers’ favorite all-time show in a new poll.  Maybe that means we should watch it sometime?

SIZZLED OUT: Mike Tyson

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning a sister channel for the Barack and Michelle Obamas of the world.

The latest example of Pixar genius

The latest example of Pixar genius

Chris Brown: The New York Times has a really interesting piece exploring why teens might be siding with him in the Rihanna case.  The court of law may decide his legal fate, but these kids get to decide whether to make or break his career.

Jennifer Lopez: Joined (ironically?) by a bunch of young C-list stars in a West Side Story photo spread in Vanity Fair.

Obama: Made some good quips with Jay Leno last night, but do people want a president that’s funny and taking time out for late-night appearances?  Or does that make him seem more “real”?

Family Guy: Here’s a nomination for weirdest cross-over in TV history.  Stewie will interact with David Boreanaz’s character on an upcoming episode of Bones.

VH1: Bringing back one of their old staples, Behind the Music.  Which is interesting considering they don’t seem to do much with music these days.  So far only Lil’ Wayne and Scott Weiland have been announced as the biography series’ subjects.

Pixar: The creators of Wall-E will have the honor of opening the prestegious Cannes Film Festival with their newest film, Up.  With their track record, it’s bound to be a hit.

Twitter: The staff at Good Morning America is so happy about their Twitter use that they released a statement saying how they more followers than competing news programs.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s what’s most important.

SIZZLED OUT: Kanye West

STILL SIZZLING: This comedian isn’t laughing now that he watched his own brother be indicted for stealing his money.

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!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Anne Hathaway: Would you pay $12,000 for a date with her? Some guy actually did. We don’t think any celebrity is worth that much!

Beatles: How about $200,000 to own their very first contract? Yeah, we wouldn’t spend that either.

Paula Abdul: Hasn’t slept at home since a fan committed suicide outside her house. Reasonable or ridiculous? We can’t decide.

Will Smith: Other celebs are banking on his 11-year marriage to stand the test of (Hollywood) time and, frankly, so are we. We can’t handle any more splits!

Jay Leno: Just because Conan is taking over The Tonight Show, Leno doesn’t have to go. He’ll just be on earlier.

Fran Drescher: Could the nanny also be a senator? That’s what she’s hoping for but we find it hard to believe it’ll happen. Caroline Kennedy does make a lot more sense.

Time: Compiled “The Top 10 Everything of 2008.” Definitely the best place for procrastination.

Online Media: Now eligible for the Pulitzer. Curious to see what, if anything, will be deemed worthy enough to win.

Gawker: Not that we didn’t know already that the media industry is floundering, but Gawker put together this handy-dandy chart of newspaper survival odds that just make things seem that much bleaker.

Network TV: New shows lead to cancellations which lead to more new shows. It’s a vicious cycle and it will gear up once again very soon.

Playboy: Christie Hefner (daughter of Hugh) has resigned her position as CEO of the company. Maybe she’s seen one too many naked ladies?

Holocaust: The subject of six films now out or soon to be. We believe this is a good thing, and wish others did, too.

Perez Hilton: Here’s your first look at his upcoming book. We have to warn you, though: it ain’t pretty!

The CW: We’re liking this new trailer, courtesy of Spoiler TV, for the winter season!

Polaroids: Disappearing before our very eyes!  Ah, technological evolution…

Wheel of Fortune: We’re going to be on the show! We tape in Los Angeles mid-January, though we don’t know when it’ll air. We’re sooo excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Which singer swears she’s completely sober now that she has a new album to promote? Answer: Lily Allen (Submitted by Ashley)

STILL SIZZLING: The quote of the day award goes to this comedian for for a hilarious one-liner: “This is the first time a First Lady can drop it like it’s hot!”
