Airing tonight on THE CW, the much anticipated 100th episode of the cult hit series GOSSIP GIRL promises to answer some questions and open the door to all new issues as the story moves on to bigger problems for Manhattan’s privileged set. A royal wedding, the return of a brilliant villain and the destruction of love triangles that beget new love triangles are just a few of the things fans can expect. But, according to producer JOSH SAFRAN, nobody has come close to guessing the shocking ending of the episode.
Not too long ago, we spoke to series star LEIGHTON MEESTER about her character Blair Waldorf and she talked about trying to find something likable in a role so dissimilar from herself. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Airing tomorrow night on Fox-TV, the long-awaited, highly-anticipated MICHAEL JACKSON tribute show that seems like it’s been in the works forever. Ten classic songs from the late “king of pop” backlist will serve to highlight the episode that features a face-off between Sebastian and Blaine as well as more suspense over Rachel’s acceptance of Finn’s marriage proposal.
CHRIS COLFER (who plays the out-and-proud Kurt Hummel on the show) takes on MJ’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somthin'” while dressed in a very provocative black leather jumpsuit/onesie. During interviews to promote this very special episode, the Golden Globe Award-winning actor described the outfit as ‘very interesting’ (to say the least). (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

As an integral member of the ensemble cast that got WOODY ALLEN’S delightful romantic bon-bon, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, nominated for Screen Actor’s Guild Award attention, RACHEL McADAMS had hoped to be in attendance with co-stars at this evening’s televised ceremony. Alas, she’s on the road tub-thumping THE VOW, her upcoming tear-jerker about an amnesiac woman struggling to recover the memory of a man who loves her, and will be on the right coast while the awards ceremony is on the left.
We spoke with McADAMS a couple of days ago and she expressed regret but wanted it known how supportive she is of her cast mates and pal WOODY ALLEN. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Apparently moviegoers have a thing for wolves and the Arctic wilderness as The Grey, headlined by Liam Neeson, debuted at the #1 spot at the box office with $20 million. The Katherine Heigl comedy One for the Money had a decent opening weekend, as it came in at #3 and took in $11.8 million, with Underworld: Awakening finishing second ($12.5 million). Unfortunately, Man on a Ledge’s numbers were disappointing, as it placed #5 with $8.3 million. Here’s the top 10:
1. The Grey – $20 million
2. Underworld: Awakening – $12.5 million
3. One for the Money – $11.8 million
4. Red Tails – $10.4 million
5. Man on a Ledge – $8.3 million
6. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close – $7.14 million
7. The Descendants – $6.55 million

After almost 20 years of reviewing (and enjoying) HBO programming, HBO gatekeeper Tobe Becker has deemed it fiscally irresponsible to further provide HOLLYWOOD OUTBREAK with advance review screeners. So, with that in mind, we wish the network the best of LUCK with its new DAVID MILCH show and hope that, despite the lukewarm reviews they’re getting, the new series is less JOHN FROM CINCINNATI and more DEADWOOD. Created by MILCH, the LUCK pilot was directed by MICHAEL MANN and stars DUSTIN HOFFMAN, NICK NOLTE, DENNIS FARINA, JOHN ORTIZ and RICHARD KIND. As with other MILCH projects, there were on-the-set stories that appeared during filming and, at the recent Television Critics Association press event to promote the show, MICHAEL MANN responded to questions regarding the rumor that he had MILCH banned from the set while the show was in production.

In the interest of fiscal responsibility, we’ve suspended our HBO account but wish the new series well and look forward to it’s DVD release in the (very) near future.
