Who remembers this show?

Who remembers this "game" show?

American Idol: The show made history last night (Idol history, that is) when the judges used their veto rule for the first time ever.  Who did they save from elimination?  Click here to find out!

David Archuleta: The former Idol finalist will be touring this summer with Demi Lovato.  That noise you hear is tweens screaming at the top of their lungs.  Get used to it.

Diddy: Proving once again that, yes, he can do everything, the mogul has signed on to appear in another movie.  Does he ever stop??

TV: Apparently the Brits love U.S. television.  They ranked their 50 favorite American shows, with some surprising results.  Reaper..really?!

Harry Potter: The release date for the next film, due out this summer, has been moved up by a whopping 2 days.  It will now open July 15th–a day very near and dear to our heart!  And yet, we still won’t go see the movie!

GSN: This June the Game Show Network will air the first-ever Game Show Awards, honoring series past and present.  Among the wide range of nominees: Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, The Amazing Race and…Singled Out?!  Let’s play a new game: which one of these things is not like the other?

SIZZLED OUT: Tori Spelling

STILL SIZZLING: We’re just full of Idol news today!  This winner, arguably one of the show’s least-popular, is returning to the tube with a reality show.  He/she can probably use the money!

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Does this look like a lawyer to you?

Heath Ledger: His family plans on giving his Golden Globe trophy to daughter Matilda.  Rightfully so!

Slumdog Millionaire: One of the reasons ABC is considering bringing the hit show back.  Been there, done that?  We’re kind of over it…

Vanessa Hudgens: Now that HSM is long over (sniff sniff), Hudgens is trying to piggyback on to another series…Twilight.  What ever happened to ‘breaking free’?

Hilary Duff: Signed a development deal with NBC back in November and now actually has something to show for it.  Barely Legal will take on a whole new meaning!

NBC: Creating a panel of “leading women” (which apparently includes Tori Spelling) to help advertisers better market to females.

Mariska Hargitay: Word broke late yesterday that the Law & Order star has a “partially collapsed lung”…and it won’t impact her TV commitments one bit.  Surprising.  Collapsed lung sounds serious, no?

Til’ Death: Hasn’t died.  Who knew?!  Better question: who cares?

The Sopranos: 10-year anniversary.  Again, who knew?!  We feel old. (And the most important Soprano, James Gandolfini, of all has a new gig: Broadway!)

Shaquille O’Neal: Mentioned on his Twitter feed that he’s getting a doctorate in “human resource development.”  One more time, all together now: WHO KNEW?!

TMZ: You know something needs to be changed in the television industry when TMZ TV is the only show that had 52 weeks of original programming in 2008.

SIZZLED OUT: Charlotte Church

STILL SIZZLING: We’re headed to LA tomorrow to tape an appearance on this game show.  Good thing we know the alphabet!

FOB is peeved and they want you to know about it!

FOB is peeved and they want you to know about it!

Heroes: Someone in the cast desperately wants out.  But Kristin won’t say who!

Fall Out Boy: Making a huge accusation that Blender sensationalized and falsified parts of their February cover story–and using Twitter to air their grievances!

Travis Barker: Accompanied by ex Shanna Moakler as he and DJ AM reunited to play a set in Las Vegas.  On again?  Or just hanging with his babymama?

ABC: Contemplating adding widgets to your television experience.  No idea how they’d do that but that’s not surprising considering we still have trouble with widgets ourselves!

TV Guide: No longer includes The CW in their magazine listings.  WTF?

Iron Man 2: Possible villiain casting: Mickey Rourke, who is in the midst of a comeback thanks to the film The Wrestler.

Jossip: No one could deny how awkward it was watching Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper co-host a New Year’s eve special.  Jossip has followed their example by coming up with some pairings of their own.  Our favorite: Joy Behar and Ann Coulter!

Journalism: People, people!  More than one news organization cannot have an exclusive on the same exact thing–as some sites claimed yesterday about Tori Spelling’s 90210 deal.  Go back to j-school!

Gawker: Has a great picture-based piece on the ridiculousness of Teen Vogue telling kids to buy $200+ bags during a recession.

Israel: We resent the suggestion that the timing of the war in Gaza was a PR move.  Considering we were there when it began last month, we can tell you that’s not true.

Not partying together

Not partying together

90210: Tori Spelling will most likely be guest-starring on 90210 this season.  For real this time.  We think.

Oprah: Not throwing the other O an inauguration party.  We’re kind of surprised.  Thought she’d be going all out!

Twilight: So they decided not to recast the role of Jacob after all.  Not that we care.

Kelsey Grammar: Will star in a new show that’s (allegedly) reflective of the current economic state.

The Daily Beast: Suggests being more web-friendly would help Obama’s administration.  Not sure we understand.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This show beat out 90210 and Fringe for favorite new TV series at the People’s Choice Awards last night.  But if you ask us, the show is kind of hard to remember.

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

Saying 'Take that, Angie!'?

90210: Still in “talks” with Tori Spelling.  We don’t even care anymore.

Jennifer Aniston: We love when she talks about Brangelina!  Here’s a new gem: “‘The funny thing is, people don’t realize we all go away to The Hamptons on the weekends,” jokes Aniston. “That’d be hysterical: I’ve got Zahara on my hip, and Knox…'” Great sense of humor!

Golden Globes: Nominations are out.  Oscar noms still to come.  What’s the difference?  Not much.

50 Cent: “Addicted” to success, he says.  And if there were a rehab for it, he’d go.  Somehow we doubt that.

James Frey: Interned for Gawker yesterday.  Doesn’t get much more random than that.

SAG: The strike could come as soon as January!  The 120,000 members will receive authorization ballots in the mail.

NPR: Cutting seven percent of its staff.  We should probably just change careers now.

TV Squad: Believes eliminating piracy–aka allowing “illegal” downloads–could save the industry.  Interesting logic.

Jay Leno: His primetime deal could usher in an era of even more less-scripted TV.  After all, now NBC will have more hours of talk shows than any other kind.

NBA: You can watch basketball in 3-D on Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a date.  Or maybe, even if you do.

Barney: The “I Love You, You Love Me Song” is being used to torture prisoners in Guantanamo.  We couldn’t make this shit up if we tried!

SIZZLED OUT: DMX

STILL SIZZLING: This actor says, in 8 years, he wants to have a film on Barack Obama ready–with him as the star!

NOT Sarah Palin!

NOT Sarah Palin!

Kevin Federline: Telling “his side” of his “life with Britney.” What timing!

90210: You can catch Jamie Walters (Ray Pruitt, whose songs were cut from the 90210 DVDs…tear!) on VH1’s new “celebreality” show Confessions of a Teen Idol. But will he perform??

Tori Spelling: The 90210 alum has apparently changed the release date of her second book to coincide with debut of her mom’s memoir. We love it!

Tina Fey: Being “sexed up” by the media, claims Salon. Won’t hurt her one bit, we think.

Gawker: We’re not even going to be able to get jobs at our back-up sites! We need a Plan C stat!

Denis Leary: Says 9/11 conspiracy theories will get some serious play on the new season of Rescue Me. The topic is both fascinating and sensitive. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!

Tyra Banks: Humble enough to say she’s not a media mogul but not so humble to say she won’t be one some day. How admirable.

Guns N Roses: So the free Dr. Pepper didn’t work out so well, and, man, are they pissed!

Michael Phelps: Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Sean Avery: Trash-talking will get you suspended. Just ask Sean: he called out a rival hockey player for dating his ex, actress Elisha Cuthbert, and now he’s out indefinitely!

Ethan Hawke: Along with other celebs like Ashley Judd, he designed his very own box of condoms to be auctioned off for charity. Beyond weird.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This new Broadway show has barely started and its already offering tickets at 40 percent off! On the bright side, the previews generated more than $1 million! Maybe it’ll live happier ever after afterall!

Is this what Donna Martin looks like today?  We still don't know!

Is this what Donna Martin looks like today? We still don't know!

Tori Spelling: Might returning to one show on The CW mean returning to another?  That’s what people are speculating now that Spelling’s signed on to reprise an earlier guest-starring role on Smallville.  Donna Martin may be the next stop but we say no D without the other D: David!

Diablo Cody: Used her EW column to gush about her joy in watching the new 90210.  Are you kidding, Diablo?  True fans find NO JOY in the new 90210!

Lindsay Lohan: Don’t know we’ll get any better confirmation than this: “It’s pretty obvious who I’m seeing.”  Yes, Lindsay, yes it is.

YouTube: In an effort to one-up Hulu, the original video site will now stream movies for free. The catch: the movies are only from MGM.  Can’t remember the last MGM film you liked?  Yeah, neither can we.

Generation O: Forget generation Y.  A new president has redefined what it means to be young in America.  Or so says The New York Times.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: The Republican governor can rejoin his wife–Democrat and Kennedy relative Maria Shriver–in the bedroom now that the election is over.  We say he should still be banned as long as gay marriage is.

Newspapers: Sadly, the extreme sales brought on by Obama’s win aren’t likely to last.  One newspaper, though, has made a plea to keep the renewed love affair going.

Twilight: What does the vampire saga owe to the pop culture icons that came before it?  Plenty.  And it’s time someone finally took notice, dammit.

Cosby: Also finally, a good look at what Obama owes to Bill Cosby and The Cosby Show.

Nicole Kidman: My, oh my.  We can’t do any better than simply repeating the lede of this article: Nicole Kidman as the world’s first post-op transsexual, married to Charlize Theron? You betcha.

Adrienne Bailon: A Disney star does it again!  Scandalous photos from this Cheetah Girl were “leaked.”  The apologies and accusations have already begun.

SIZZLED OUT: Gavin Rossdale

STILL SIZZLING: The perk of animated films?  Not having to shower before going to work, says these two comic stars!
