Jennifer Lopez and the only good movie she starred in!

Jennifer Lopez and the only good movie she starred in!

Britney Spears: Comeback kid of the year, says MTV.  Wait, we thought that was Robert Downey, Jr.?

Kate Hudson: Says she wants to be single as long as possible.  Like that’ll ever happen.

Pete Wentz: Wowwwwww.  He revealed way TMI about his (sex) life with Ashlee on (where else?) The Howard Stern Show.

Jennifer Lopez: Blessing us once more with her acting skills.  To be fair, Selena was pretty amazing.

The CW: Screwed over by a change in the Nielsen ratings counting procedures.  They always pick on the little ones, don’t they?

Jessica Alba: Joining Jack Black on the Superbowl ep of The Office.

Usher: Holding a contest to let an under-18 fan shoot his next video.

Ryan Murphy: A show about high school glee clubs doesn’t sound promising but with Murphy (Nip/Tuck) at the helm, we have a little faith.

Jossip: Woah!  Major site redesign with practically no explanation!  So not okay!

SIZZLED OUT: Sean Avery

STILL SIZZLING: Michael Copon, rumored to be taking over the role of Jacob in Twilight, got a big break when he starred on this show–one of our favorites!

The family that works together, stays together?

The family that works together, stays together?

EW: Rumors about it going on-line only are false, says the mag.  That makes us happy, even if we knock them every now and again.

The Dark Knight: If the DVD is flying off the shelves, why would anyone go to see it again in theaters?

Full House: Last week we heard about a remake and now it’s not happening.  Consider us  bummed.

Gossip Girl: And don’t be fooled.  This spin-off isn’t happening, either!

Twilight: New director will likely be Chris Weitz.  His previous credits include American Pie.  Just sceams family-friendly, doesn’t it?  On the flipside, he was once nominated for an Oscar.  Screams talent?  You decide.

Harry Potter: If you love the books/films so much, you might want to book a trip to Chicago.  The Museum of Science and Industry there will have a HP exhibit through September.

Will Ferrell: And if you can’t make it to New York, too, to see his show “You’re Welcome, America.  A Final Night with George W. Bush,” stay tuned to HBO which will do a live telecast in the somewhat near future.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Mixing business with pleasure, she and babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard (what’s with the double As?) will star together in an off-Broadway show.  Let’s hope this doesn’t mean doom for the couple, for the kid’s sake at least.

YouTube: 40 inspirational speeches, all cut from movies, in 2 minutes.  Awesome.

Gawker: Unveiled a redesign late yesterday.  It’s okay.  We’re not big fans of change, though.

Cosmetic Surgery: Do you feel like women’s mags are endorsing it?  We’ve never really thought about it, so guess that’s a no for us.

McDonald’s: Trying to start an ad war with Starbucks and we kind of like it.

KB Toys: Going out of business.  So that means Toys R Us is all that’s left, right?  Good thing that was our favorite!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: We love this whimsical writer but people seem to be bagging on him lately.  (Hint: You can use the last name to make play on the word shadenfreude!)

Want her face?

Want her face?

SNL: Why are people so surprised by the return of Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton?  Aside from the fact that Poehler recently had a baby, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of Clinton on the show since she accepted the media-heavy position of Secretary of State.

Twilight: The film franchise has hit its first stumbling block: Catherine Hardwicke and Summit have parted ways.  Hardwicke will not direct the sequel, and the reason allegedly goes deeper than a simple schedule conflict.

Kanye West: NOT on Twitter!

David Gregory: The worst kept secret of late is a secret no more.  NBC officially announced Gregory as the new host of Meet the Press.

Obama: Said on the aforementioned show he won’t be smoking in the White House.  So will that be the first promise he breaks?

Tribune Company: Bankruptcy is on the horizon.  You know what follows?  More lay offs. Blek.

Barbra Streisand: Forced to share face time with arch enemy President Bush as she was honored by the Kennedy Center.  Thankfully, no blood was shed.

Facebook: Beware of the Koobface virus!

PEOPLE: Redemption!  The New York Times public editor is criticizing the piece the paper ran last month bashing PEOPLE.  Turns out the NYT got some facts wrong!  Will a retraction follow?  We sure hope so.

NYT: Not sure we should trust them anymore (see above) but they’ve just released their list of the 10 best books of 2008.  We’ve read approximately none of them.

Roger Ebert: Has “had it” with years of top 10 lists.  So what did he do instead?  Made a top 20 list.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry

STILL SIZZLING: We’re turning the tables on you.  What juicy riddle do you have?  We’ll print the best one tomorrow!

For Ro's sake, maybe history should repeat itself!

For Ro's sake, maybe history should repeat itself!

EW: A non-Twilight cover!  Yes!  Jennifer Aniston in its place.  We can deal.  Best part, though: Aniston compares Vogue to a tabloid for fixating its story on her and Brangelina!

Grammys: Nominations are out.  Leading the pack are Lil Wayne and Coldplay, two artists we don’t care for.  Guess that means we have bad taste?

Oprah: Surprise, surprise.  O is bringing her show to D.C. for Obama’s inaugeration.

Obama: Speaking of the inaugeration, what will the Mrs. wear?  There’s some sketches floating around.  They’re not half-bad!

Broadway: Grease is closing.  We never got a chance to see it.  Oh, well.

Broadway Pt. 2: The Flintstones are (maybe) coming!  Will this be Rosie O’Donnell’s next gig?

Neve Campbell: Coming back to primetime as one-half of an interracial couple on a new series.  Modern times call for modern shows!

The Apprentice: Why can’t anyone say ‘you’re fired!’ to Donald Trump?  It would really help us all.  Instead, NBC is planning to air each episode of the new season in two-hour installments.

TV Academy Hall of Fame: Bea Arthur is being inducted!  We do love our Golden Girls!

Luke Wilson: Is he really on Twitter?  Time will tell, we suppose.

The Real World: The subject of a special panel at the Paley Center for Media.  Though this is embarrassing to admit, we really wish we could go!

Choose a language, read the book and see the movie.  That's a direct order!

Choose a language, read the book and see the movie. That's an order!

Mark Ruffalo: The actor’s brother is criticially injured after being shot in the head!  And that’s pretty much all we know right now.  Sad.

Pete Wentz: Called newborn son Bronx “a happy accident.” This cannot end well.

Gossip Girl: Apparently one of the characters is preggers.  So is actress Kelly Rutherford (Lily).  Coincidence?

Kelly Ripa: What’s that we always say about tabloids?  Oh, yeah–don’t believe them!  The latest proof: Ripa’s rep is saying a National Enquirer cover story that she and hubby/hottie Mark Consuelos are getting a divorce “100 percent false.”  We imagined so!

Jessica Simpson: Reveals things to Marie Claire that we never knew (and probably didn’t care to) like her love of self-help books, her desire to take a class on religion and her collection of “lucky pennies.”  Maybe celebrities are just like the rest of us!  (Ha!)

Funny Or Die: What happens when celebrities make a “Prop 8 Musical”?  Hilarity and cleverness ensue, of course!  Among those featured: Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Chalke, John C. Reilly and much more!

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: Holocaust movies are usually stellar and this one was no expection.  We saw it last night.  Incredibly moving. The odds for an Oscar nomination are slim but it’s completely deserving.

Harry Potter: Think the books are finished?  Think again.  J.K. Rowling is releasing a spin-off, called The Tales of Beetle the Bard.  Necessary?  Probably not.  At least the profits–which, we’re sure, will be enormous–are going to charity.

Kanye West: With lyrics about his ex-fiance like “You spoiled LA girl” and “Tell everybody that you know that I don’t love you no more,” is his new album a little too personal?  All we know is we wouldn’t want to be Alexis Phifer right now!

Kid Rock: Thinks a music tour for the armed forces should count as community service.  No way, says the courts.  We’re torn:  it is a nice thing to do but something he’d likely do regardless of whether he had the CS punishment, right?

Kristen Stewart: Surely riding the wave of Twilight’s success, she’s just been cast as Joan Jett in a new biopic.  We don’t see ANY resemblance but stranger casting choices have been made.

Facebook: Lindsay Lohan has got a bone to pick with you (but not with MySpace, she’ll have you know)!  Apparently they shut down LiLo’s account, thinking it was a fake, and now she is PEEVED!

Hey baby! Rock steady!

24: Friendly reminder that the 2-hour prequel airs tonight on Fox.

Lost: TV Guide says there’s a subliminal message in the trailer for the upcoming season.  Anyone figure out what it means?

Michelle Williams: In an interview with Newsweek, the actress says how she struggled–and still does–in the months since Heath’s death.  The article is heartbreaking.

Josh Schwartz: Says he hopes Gossip Girl will be in its 22nd season in 20 years, then says he’s kidding.  Somehow, we don’t think he is.

SAG: An actor’s strike is looming.  There will be tears.

No Doubt: After a baby-making and solo-project filled hiatus, the band is getting back together for a summer tour.  Hella good!

Twilight: Having such a great opening weekend, the next installment just got the green light.  We’re pretty sure we won’t see that one, either.

Gawker: A fun look at the celebrity couples that “boggle the mind and tug at the heart.”

Seinfeld: The show lives!

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Wintour (Vogue)

STILL SIZZLING: Which celebrity had this to say about her upcoming film: “I wish it was ‘She’s Just Not That Into You’! Unfortunately, it’s ‘He’s Just Not That Into You.’ The other would be more empowering.”  Considering her love life lately, this attitude comes as no surprise.

Sucking the blood out of EW

Sucking the blood out of EW

James Bond: In honor of the release of Quantum of Solace (how many times can YOU put ‘of’ in a sentence?), take a stroll down memory lane by revisiting Bond’s sexual puns and theme songs.

Reality TV: What’s the difference between ‘reality’ and ‘unscripted’ television?  This article attempts to explain it but we’re still not sure we understand.

Desperate Housewives: The rumor of the day is that Sarah Palin will appear on Wisteria Lane.  Says the show’s creator: “There is no way!”  Whew.  Close one.

EW: As expected, the ax came down today on some unlucky staffers at Entertainment Weekly.  We’ve become numb by this point.

Gawker: Kudos to them for taking a swipe at the ridiculous hysteria surrounding Twilight and, yes, EW’s absurd obsession with the series.

PEOPLE: And while, yes, we are numb, this did make us cry a little.

Joe Scarborough: His morning show on MSNBC will now have a 7-second delay.  That’s what happens when you drop the F-bomb!

OTH: We could not be more excited for One Tree Hill’s 1940s-themed episode next week and we are so glad its getting the media attention it deserves!

AP: The people at Associated Press have too much time on their hands.  (Then again, so do we.)  They’ve decided with a new election, comes new style changes.

Prison Break: It’s almost a sure thing this season will be the last.  Fox just commissioned two more episodes–likely to serve as some sort of wrap-up.

Jodie Sweetin: The Full House star may have spilled to PEOPLE all about her meth addiction but apparently, there’s lots more to share.  Like a whole book’s worth.  Stephanie Tanner is writing a memoir!

Obama: Time’s Person of the Year.  Not like we didn’t see that coming.

SIZZLED OUT: Live! With Regis and Kelly

STILL SIZZLING: The Parents Television Council says these two shows–one animated, one not–are the worst and best for kids, respectively.
