One of the best songs ever.  Try to convince us otherwise!

One of the best songs ever. Try to convince us otherwise!

90210: If we dislike the new show show so much, how come we get chills every time we see a promo for its January return?

The CW: Notoriously shut out from awards, just like its predecessor The WB.  So Kristin over at E! Online is holding her own CW-only awards.  Pretty cute.

TV Guide: We don’t get this AT ALL.  TV Guide the magazine and TVGuide.com the web site are now owned by different companies.  So one of our favorite writers, Matt Roush, will no longer be on the site.  WTF?

Eminem: Denying reports that his new album will include a follow-up to one of our favorite songs, Stan.

Tara Reid: Checked into rehab but no word on what she’s there for.

Tommy Hilfiger: Reportedly got married last night.  Most interesting to us: he gave his fiance an 8.2 carat engagement ring!  So how sparkly is the wedding band?!

American Idol: If they cancel their hugeeeeeee charity event, Idol Gives Back, will they lose credibility?  Or will people understand given the economy?

Economy: Who has a clever name for the current recession/depression/doomsday?  The New York Times are looking for it!

Gawker: Can now comment on their blog through your Facebook accounts.  Kudos actually goes to FB, we think.

Rod Blagojevich: Deleted his Facebook account after his arrest–but not before getting slammed with insults from other users.

Rod Balgojevich Pt. 2: The Chicago Tribune has a pretty funny animation based on the governor’s profanity-laded conversations.

John Ritter: Got a really good tribute on last night’s Family Entertainment Awards, 5 years after his death.

SIZZLED OUT: Jonathan Safran Foer (schadenfoer!)

STILL SIZZLING: This musician says he wants to follow in Justin Timberlake’s footsteps.  With his own hit song last summer and writing a hit for another new star, we don’t think he’ll have any problem finding more success.

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson and her late mother, Darnell

Jennifer Hudson: After finding out her mother and brother were murdered yesterday, the actress-singer has returned home to Chicago.  Hudson’s nephew is still missing and the FBI have joined the investigation, though a suspect–allegedly the boy’s father–is in custody. We can’t imagine the pain Hudson, who lost her father when she was a teen (and just got engaged last month), feels right now and we hope we’ll never have to.

Fall Out Boy: Trying to break a world record by appearing on more than 57 radio shows in a given day.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s cool.

DWTS: Reports are circulating that there’s beef between Cloris and the rest of the cast–though denials are being issued, too.  We all know they’re just upset that an 82-year-old has made it this far in the competition.

The View: Should the co-hosts not be allowed to wear politically-inspired clothing on the show?  That’s the latest coming from Barbara Walters after McCain-lover Elisabeth Hasselbeck sported a shirt for him on the show.  Stepping on free speech?  We’re undecided.

The CW: The network is no longer considered near-death thanks to the ratings improvement for Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill and the (questionable) success of 90210.  Though this makes us happy, we’re not gonna lie: we miss the WB.

Palin: Should she get a gig hosting a talk show if the whole VP thing doesn’t work out?  We’re thinking no.  If she doesn’t win for veep, obviously people don’t like her so why would they watch her show?

David Giuntoli: Who said there isn’t life after MTV?  This former no-name has parlayed a few seasons on Road Rules (and the spin-off challenges) into a role on Privileged.  Apparently he also kissed a dude on Grey’s Anatomy.  Who knew?

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Which megastar’s girlfriend is doing some of her own recording?  Perhaps they think it will help bring sexy back to their relationship.

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.
