Seth Meyers Taking Fallon’s ‘Late Night’ Reins

Jimmy Fallon Seth MeyersSaturday Night Live writer and news guy Seth Meyers thanked Lorne Michaels (and his mother) on Twitter after he was confirmed as Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night replacement.

“So, next year I’m going to do this. Thanks to NBC, Lorne, but especially Mom,” he wrote, including a link to the NY Times article announcing the big move.

I like Seth Meyers. He’s very sharp on Weekend Update, but who exactly decided that Fallon’s sub had to be another SNL alumn? Is Fallon’s success, and the success of any other host, not a one-of-a-kind occurrence that has to do with individual talent?

Obsessing over his lack of versatility compared to his predecessor is pointless. He’s more comedic than Leno or Letterman, and presumably not much less in tune than Fallon, Ferguson or Kimmel. He’ll be fine.

Meyers is expected to stay on Saturday Night Live through the holidays, until early 2014.

Demi Lovato And Britney Spears Are Confirmed ‘X Factor’ Judges

Earlier this month E! reported that Britney Spears wanted Demi Lovato to appear on X-Factor with her. Now they’ve both been confirmed and her wish has been granted, Lovato will join her as a replacement to Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul.

Simon Cowell and LA Reid will even out the panel in terms of gender, but will Demi compliment Britney? They are similar. Lovato’s struggles (with cutting and bulimia) and comeback does seem familiar.

Howard Stern Is Coming To ‘America’s Got Talent!’

I LOVE Howard Stern, what I don’t love is America’s Got Talent, but will I watch it now that he’s been confirmed as a judge? H-E double hockey sticks yeah I will.

Yesterday Stern was announced as the replacement for Piers Morgan (Zzz) after rumors swirled for over a month about the possible deal ($20 Million dollars for a year?) with NBC and the King Of All Media.

Producers of AGT are even willing to move the entire show to New York so Howard can continue his radio show on Sirius. Of course, the sore bores at the Parents Television Council are angered by all of this.

They told TMZ that Howard Stern is “a performer who is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity.”

Jessica Simpson’s Baby News Upstaged By Kim Kardashian

Did you hear that Jessica Simpson confirmed her completely obvious pregnancy the other day? On Halloween?

Of course not, because Kim Kardashian got divorced that day. Bad news always trumps good news in the celebrity world.

It has Ms. Simpson wondering, “Is this a baby, what I have here?” (In tuna-confusion-voice)

No two million dollars for a People magazine spread covering the announcement, Jess gave her approval to Yahoo’s Omg! along with a picture that was already on her website, where she had originally written, “It’s true! I am going to be a mummy!”

Good Casting Cannot Make ‘Expendables 2’ Desirable


2010’s The Expendables directed by and starring Sylvester Stallone, featured an A-list action-hero cast…

Sadly, casting couldn’t save the first film from mind-bogglingly poor special-effects and a plot so bad it made me wish I was starring in a real-life version of the movie – as a henchwoman who dies two minutes in.

Not only has a sequel to The Expendables been confirmed but casting rumors have been as well by Stallone himself. Not only will Arnold Schwarzenegger  and Bruce Willis reprise their roles ‘in a more substantial way,’ but Mr. Walker Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris himself will appear…

The sequel does not have an exact release date, but we know the year is 2013. We also know that the entire original cast from the 2009 film will return for Star Trek 2.

Beyonce Is Prego

Today Beyonce officially announced that she is in fact pregnant. She reportedly pointed and cupped her belly at the VMA Pre-Show AND before her performance of “Love On Top” she said,

“I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.”  (creepy)

Jay-Z And Kanye jumped all over the place… And later her agent confirmed the pregnancy to reporters.

This is her and Jay-Z’s first baby together. They were abruptly married in 2008 and have since led very normal lives as a duo, as normal as two of the biggest names in the industry can.

Rumors of Jay-Z’s infidelity have surfaced earlier this summer, somebody named Vashtie Kola claimed she was going to steal Jay away from Mrs. Beyonce Knowles. Sounds like an empty threat to me…
