No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

DWTS: Guess something good can come from being dumped on national television.  Melissa, now that she’s done with The Bachelor (in more ways than one) is rumored to be replacing Nancy O’Dell.  Guess we’ll find out when the season premieres tonight!

Ashlee Simpson: As if CSI wasn’t bad enough, Simpson is taking her acting skills over to the Melrose Place remake.  Is the show doomed now?  Or was it already?

Dakota Fanning: Officially joined the Twilight sequel, New Moon.  Guess her pale skin is an asset, then?

Demi Moore: Thank god for Twitter!  Otherwise we wouldn’t know Mrs. Kutcher fights with her TiVo and watches American Idol like the rest of us!

SIZZLED OUT: Vince Vaughn

STILL SIZZLING: It’s just not funny anymore.  This TV twosome called it quits…again.

Before...and...After

Before...and...After

Patrick Swayze: Don’t believe the tabloids, he says. (We could’ve told you that!) Yes, he does have cancer but the battle against it is going well and he is not on his deathbed. Hurrah!

SAG: Is it possible an actors’ strike won’t make much of a difference? That could be the case, predicts the LA Times, which points out that many shows are made under AFTRA rules and thus won’t be on strike.

Prison Break: Even Robert Knepper knows his character T-Bag is an “animal.” But here’s what we want to know: if the show does end with this season, as rumored, will T-Bag finally get the death he deserves?

Gossip Girl: Given how much the stars’ looks have changed since they started in the biz, we have renewed hope that we, too, will one day be magazine cover-worthy.

TV Sales: Who knew you could use them to measure the state of the economy?

Soap Operas: From fired stars to greatly-reduced salaries, the economy sure is killing one of our favorite genres. Melodramatic indeed.

Soap Operas Pt. 2: We have to give All My Children credit for casting a real-life Iraqi veteran to play one on the show. But more credit goes to J.R. Martinez himself for all he’s accomplished since being severely burned in 2003.

Salvation Army: Using Facebook and Twitter to drum up donations. Clever or tired?

Facebook: Feeling spammed by application requests? (See above for an example.) You’re not alone.

TiVo: Do you record and record but never actually sit down and watch and yet you still don’t delete? Then you’re suffering from TiVo guilt! Don’t you feel better now that there’s an actual diagnosis? We’re pretty sure we’d have this, too, if we actually had a TiVo.

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.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day.

Our chances of working for one of these mags are disappearing by the day. Sigh.

Tina Fey: Is Bristol Palin her newest babysitter?  The offer has been made by Mrs. Palin.  Fey’s response: “I was like, yeah, that’s exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do, at ‘SNL,’ is babysit the toddler of the lady that goofs on her mom.”  We’re just wondering if Bristol will even want to babysit her own toddler.

Redemption Song: American Idol for boozies, strippers and cons.  We kid you not.  Gotta love Fuse.

Obama: Pundits across America are weighing in on last night’s last-ditch effort by Obama to secure American’s vote.  But what about all the people that already voted through absemtee and early ballots?  Lost causes?

Phillies: MLB champs.  Notice how we didn’t say World Series champs.  Semantics, really, but how can you win a world championship when the whole world doesn’t have the opportunity to play?  The MLB is only in America, folks!

Jennifer Hudson: As expected, all the entertainment/gossip mags have Hudson-focused covers.  Curious to see how they sell and which one does the best.

Time Inc.: Laying off up to 600 staffers in the coming weeks.  Now how will we ever get a job there?!

TiVo: Got TiVo?  Now you got Netflix, too.  The two have married.  Applause all around.  Except for us.  We still don’t have TiVo.  Or Netflix.

SIZZLED OUT: Melrose Place

STILL SIZZLING: Which actor has walked the line for the final time?  He’s retiring at age 34!
