Meet Dorothy Gale

Meet Dorothy Gale

Sizzle: We’re back.  We know you missed us.  You can calm down now.

Lindsay Lohan: Her relationship with Samantha Ronson has never been anything less than bizarre.  Even though the restraining order reports are false, we wouldn’t be surprised in the least if either girl sought one.

Eminem: No better way to launch a comeback than to release a song and video taking potshots at practically everyone in the tabloids.  That’s Eminem for ya.

The Simpsons: MySpace is running a contest inviting fans to film their own couch gag.  Could see record participation for this one, we think.

Beverly Hills 90210: More than 10 years after it originally aired, season seven was released on DVD yesterday.  Who wants to bet that after all 10 seasons are done, they’ll make a complete series boxset and entice us to shell out even more money?

Oprah: Now that she’s done campaigning for Obama, O has turned her sights to the 2016 Olympics which, if she has her way, will be in our hometown of Chicago.  Honestly not sure if we want the Olympics here, so we can’t say whether the Oprah effect will be good or bad.

The Wizard of Oz: Getting a modern-day treatment for a new televisions series to be called Dorothy Gale.  Can’t see it having the same charm as the original, though.  To be fair, other Oz spin-offs (The Wiz, Wicked, etc.) have done quite well so this one might see some success, too.

SIZZLED OUT: Survivor

STILL SIZZLING: This one-time iconic sitcom dad–who is best known in real life for his foul comedy–returned to TV this week in another father role.

The 44th president of the United State of America

The 44th president of the United States of America

Obama: ‘Good morning, Mr. President’ has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it Barack?

Music Stylists: People rich folks pay to design custom playlists to match home decor.  We’re sorry but if you are incapable of making your own playlist, you do not deserve to even have an iPod.

Heidi Klum: Double good news!  She’s not leaving the country AND she strips down to her skivvies for a new Guitar Hero commercial!  We don’t want to hear a complaint from guys for at least the next six months.

David Archuleta: Let’s hope hope the songs on his debut album aren’t as wordy as the liner notes that come with it: 3,500 words long!

Oprah: Already has a dress picked out for Obama’s January inauguration but isn’t a little presumptuous of O to assume she’ll be invited?

A Lion Among Men: The latest in a series of Wicked-related books by author Gregory Maguire.  What, you think things began and ended with The Wizard of Oz?

Tim Robbins: The staunch liberal ran into a wee bit of trouble yesterday when he went to vote.  Electioneers told him he wasn’t registered! As you may have guessed, the shit hit the fan.

TV Ratings: If you’re not an exec in the news department, you’re probably thrilled the election is over.  Networks are hoping ratings for once-popular shows will go back up.  Is the election really to blame for shrinking audiences?  Or is it just a reflection of the declining quality of TV?

Nielsen: Did you know Americans can multi-task?  The researchers over at Nielsen didn’t.  They’ve just completed a study that shows people can watch television AND be on the internet at the same time.  Shocking!

Jessica Simpson: Said in a new interview with Cosmopolitan she’s usually attracted to guys that need “saving.”  What about Nick Lachey needed saving?  He seemed pretty damn perfect to us.  Jess also says the next time she gets married “will be the last time.”  What are the odds she’s saying that again one day?

SIZZLED OUT: Kevin Connolly

STILL SIZZLING: Which rocker says he owes his existence to Joe Biden?  If not for the vice-president-elect, his parents would never have met!
