Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. With the beginning of the week ahead of us and hopefully the WGA strike is near an end, we need to get to the news.

  • This weekend was a good one for Disney with Enchanted, starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey coming in at number one this weekend. This Christmas and Beowulf rounded out the remainder of the top three, so as always, family favorites and kid fare did well on a holiday weekend.

  • In Iowa, Hillary Clinton discussed her "relationship" with Mr. Murdoch. While doing her usual political press crap, Senator Clinton was put on the spot and forced to explain why the US shouldn't be scared of our media all being owned by one or two companies. I swear as the election comes closer, I become increasingly scared of who will take over for Howdy Doody.

  • The lead singer of Quiet Riot, Kevin DuBrow was found dead in his Las Vegas home. There is no confirmation as of yet what was the cause, but friends of the musician are already saying it had nothing to do with drugs. In other music news, Hawthorne Heights' guitarist Casey Calvert was found dead on the band's tour bus this past Saturday. No cause has been determined as of yet in this case as well. Our best wishes to both of their friends and family.

  • Oprah has some explaining to do. Apparently, there is a tell all book written by a one time high level executive at Harpo Productions. Only problem is that there doesn't seem to be any takers in the publishing industry. I guess no one wants to mess with Ms. Winfrey so they don't lose a possible place on her book club list.

  • Dan Rather discusses his suit against CBS. The anchorman wants everyone to know he didn't want to end his career like this, but once he realized his credibility was questioned, he needed to prove he was right.

  • The WGA Strike conversation picks up again this week. Hopefully they make a decision so my ass can start watching new episodes of The Office.

  • Lauren Ambrose joins the cast of Where the Wild Things Are. Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers wrote the screenplay adaptation of the classic children's book. I for one am quite excited for this animated flick.

  • And finally in boring news, The Hogans are getting divorced.
