As everyone knows, NBC fired Conan O’Brien as host of the Tonight Show after just a few months and then gave the job back to Jay Leno. Essentially NBC pissed away 200 million dollars while making Leno look like an asshole, and then re-hired him.
His ratings have dropped every week since his return, and 3 weeks ago his ratings actually fell below Conans at a comparable point (more). The audience has now dropped from 5 million viewers last year to 4 million this year, the lowest ratings since 1992 (variety). For a more visual example, just picture Eric Claptons kid. That’s what Leno’s ratings look like.
But at least that’s all in the past and NBC doesn’t have to relive their mistake anymore. Wouldn’t you agree, Popeater?
‘The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien’ earned its first and only Emmy nomination this morning.
Conan will compete against ‘The Colbert Report,’ ‘The Daily Show,’ ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series category.
‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ was not nominated, although NBC submitted Leno’s work, while O’Brien’s own people submitted his.
Granted this is no badge of honor for Conan either. Being nominated alongside SNL is nothing short of embarrassing. You could have more fun getting your dick caught in a zipper for 90 minutes.
MEL GIBSON – is heard calling an employee a ‘wetback’ on a recording made by his ex. “I will report her to the fucking people that take fucking money from the wetbacks,” he says. Does he mean stores that sell rims? What can they do about Mexicans? (radar)
LINDSAY LOHAN - told her friends that the judge who gave her 90 days in jail was out to get her, and then called her “a fucking bitch.” So it seems Lindsay really has changed. We should all line up and apologize. (tmz)
THE EMMYS – were announced this morning, and in keeping with tradition, none of it makes the slightest bit of sense, including shows like ‘Always Sunny…’ and ‘Community’ being completely left out, while ‘Glee’ was nominated in best comedy. That piece of shit show shouldn’t be on a list of best comedies even if you demanded that they all have the word ‘glee’ in the title. (gawker)
KATE GOSSELIN – thinks she’s 18 apparently. And attractive. And even though she’s a mom out with her 8 kids, she dresses like someone going shopping for cock rings. What a dynamite lady. (inf daily)
Tyler has really sexy readers (as if I needed to tell you that) so a few months ago (here) I started posting some of their pictures on facebook. And then almost immediately I started hearing from people saying they couldn’t access the page for some reason. That should all be fixed now, so you should follow Tyler on twitter and facebook. The girl in the blue bikini really wants you to. She also apparently wants to make girls with DD’s feel flat-chested and paralyzed by low self esteem.
Hilary Duff walked around Beverly Hills today, showing off some surprisingly nice cleavage while doing some shopping. Actually she started out with her hair up, glasses on and her shirt buttoned to the top. Then later her hair came down. Then later her shirt started to pop open. And then later her glasses came off. It was like watching a really slow Van Halen video. By this time tomorrow she’ll be in a bikini and high heels.
Up until now, the story claiming Mel Gibson beat ex girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva was strictly a “he said-she said” kind of thing. You may have noticed this post started with the words words, “up until now…” The Huffington Post says…
Last week a tape recording of Mel Gibson threatening his ex, Oksana Grigorieva, with an ugly, racist rant surfaced and now more tapes start to show the extent of his abuse.
The new content has Mel admitting to hitting Oksana twice while she was holding their baby daughter.
“What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face? What kind of a man is that?” Oksana reportedly cries on tape.
Mel’s response: “You know what? You f**cking deserved it.”
Wow this Mel Gibson must be dumb as a rock. This isn’t a movie. She’s not the narrator establishing the back-story. It was a trick dummy. All those details? It was a trick. The fist 5 minutes of the tape was probably some some version of, “Why don’t you come over here and say that Mel Gibson? Over by these common flowers that I bought at the Plain Flower Store.”
“I am not taking this as a joke, it’s my life and career. I don’t want to you to think I don’t respect you and your terms,” Lindsay Lohan said to the judge yesterday after writing “fuck u” on her fingernail.
And now that final act of arrogance could get her in even more trouble because it might be considered contempt of court. Fox News says…
If indeed Lohan’s message was aimed toward the courts, “it would be a separate charge for contempt,” says New York City Public Defender Stacy Schneider. “She could have an entire extra sentence heaped on top of her current one. If the judge were angry enough, it could run even consecutively.”
Los Angeles Public Defender Greg Apt echoed Schneider’s sentiments. “The judge could hold her in direct contempt, which could be between three to five days in jail for vulgarity.”
Or then again…
“There’s no legal ramifications from this. She has a First Amendment right to wear anything she wants,” a prominent criminal defense attorney tells People.
Hopefully she will get in more trouble because hubris is funny. Lindsay fully expected to walk out of court yesterday but in the mean time she was gonna stick it to the man with her secret little “fuck u”. But it turns out the man has guards with guns and handcuffs, and they’ll beat you up if you try to stick things to them. A better idea is to fill out the mans paperwork and do what he says.

Last night Entertainment Tonight ran the exclusive first look at the Megan Fox wedding pictures, and it’s amazing that this was kept so quiet because it’s not as if they were being subtle.
The video is a little longer than it should be but I didn’t want people to worry about Mary Hart. I was a nervous wreck when I didn’t see her behind the desk as the video began. “Oh no,” I shouted. “Where’s Mary Hart? Is she okay, has there been an accident?” It would have ruined the whole show but luckily the first thing Marc Steiner does is calm everyone down by letting us know that Mary Hart is off tonight. Whew! What a relief. My heart was pounding a mile a minute.
Lindsay Lohan was ordered to wear a SCRAM bracelet on May 24th to detect if she was violating the courts orders and using drugs or alcohol. Astoundingly, there was only one very minor trace of alcohol ever detected the entire time. It turns out she was right and we were wrong! She wasn’t on drugs, she wasn’t an alcoholic, it was everyth-Oh wait never mind she was on drugs. Extremely powerful yet legal drugs because of a loophole she exploited from the very beginning.
Lindsay has a current prescription for a drug she’s technically allowed to take despite her drug testing requirement — and it’s several times stronger than morphine.
(It’s called) Dilaudid — an extremely powerful painkiller … often compared to morphine … and even heroin.
And, brace yourself, she first got this prescription on June 2. Just a few days after she began wearing the SCRAM. So when she told the judge she’s been sober, she meant, “other than the drug compared to heroin that I’ve been shotgunning all month and am high on right now as I stand in front of you”. It’s why no one should think her 90 day sentence was too harsh. She could have been sentenced to live on Monster Island or held underwater for 90 days and it still would have been 100 percent her own fault.
