Today's News: Our Take


PLAY IT AGAIN

Jamie Foxx's emotional acceptance speech was the Oscar moment most replayed by TiVo users. Million Dollar Baby's best picture win was second, followed by Annette Bening's mid-ceremony Botox injection and Amy Lumet's first rack flash. read more

IN A LATHER

Daytime Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and would you believe that eight women were singled out in the best-actress slot? That's right, eight. Strangely, the category didn't include any actresses from All My Children, despite the fact that the show earned 18 nods, the most of any soap. On the talk-show side, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The View led with 11 nominations each. For backstage scoop from the Emmy nomination ceremony, click here. read more

FINALLY!

Variety is confirming that Roseanne will make its highly anticipated debut on DVD later this year. One more time: "Finally!" read more

FELLOWSHIP OF THE BLING

The Lord of the Rings mastermind Peter Jackson is suing New Line Cinema, claiming the studio shortchanged him on profits from the first installment, The Fellowship of the Ring. Jackson says he is owed potentially millions of dollars from home video, merchandising and video-game sales. read more

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL

Hollywood's go-to ambulance chaser Mark Geragos is developing a reality show that will feature Michael Jackson's former attorney taking on civil cases brought by everyday people. Variety is calling Extreme Justice "The People's Court with big-name lawyers" and a far less catchy theme. read more

Gilmore Girls All is right with...

Gilmore Girls
All is right with the world — Luke and Lorelai are back together. Just in time too, 'cause Luke was one customer toss away from jail time and Lorelai was one video rental away from spinster time. Not that A Star Is Born wasn't the perfect movie for their romantic reconciliation. "The night is bitter/The stars have lost their glitter/The wind grows colder/And suddenly you're older/And all because of the man that got away," sang Judy Garland just as Luke planted one on Lorelai. I think I felt that kiss right down to my toes. Sigh. Those two are just so right for each other. And speaking of right for each other, my new favorite couple has to be Lane and Zack. (I'm still undecided about Rory and Logan. There's something a little too slick about that rich boy. I'm just waiting for her to catch him in the stacks making out with some sorority snob.) Loved how Lane w read more

FOX ON FIRE

With only one night of February sweeps remaining, Fox — fueled by American Idol, the Super Bowl and a resurgent 24, is poised to win among total viewers and adults 18 to 49. CBS will finish a strong No. 2, followed by ABC, which is up 8 percent over last February. Friend-less NBC, meanwhile, fell from first to fourth among the 18 to 49 set. read more

NYPD Blue Hunk's Farewell

When NBC's tween-comedy Saved by the Bell was expelled in 1994, Mark-Paul Gosselaar (then best known as Zack) thought it'd be a snap finding his next big role. Unfortunately, lean times and less-than-stellar projects followed. That is, until producer Steven Bochco rejuvenated Gosselaar's career by annointing him as Dennis Franz's final partner on NYPD Blue. Four years later, the groundbreaking police drama is closing up shop. (ABC airs a one-hour retrospective tonight at 9 pm/ET, followed by the actual finale at 10.) At least this time, the actor's future is less uncertain — he has already been cast in a Fox pilot about a brother and sister who run a Las Vegas wedding chapel. With steady employment on the horizon, Gosselaar's able to relax and fondly reflect on his well-received stint at the 15th Precinct.

Amazing Race 7 Preview


Last year was busy for Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan. Not only did he film three back-to-back editions of the reality hit, he also launched his new TV series No Opportunity Wasted and published a book based on the program. "I only had two days off and traveled 465,000 miles," says the exhausted New Zealander. "I really need to take a bit of a break."

Before he can slack off though, he's got to tell TVGuide.com all about the seventh edition of The Amazing Race, which premieres tonight on CBS at 9pm/ET. Keoghan acknowledges it's strange to be gearing up for another season so soon after the previous one wrapped, but he's very high on Amazing Race 7. "My favorite season before this was Season 5," he says. "There was something about that season that captured the magic of what the race is all about. I never thought it would get any better than that, but I have to say that Season 7 is now my favorite. It is, without doubt, the strongest one w read more

NOT SO GOLDEN

Sunday's Oscar snoozefest wasn't the ratings dynamo ABC had hoped for. Although preliminary figures indicated that the Chris Rock-hosted ceremony had attracted its widest audience in five years, the final numbers painted a grimmer picture: A total 41.5 million viewers saw Amy Lumet's million dollar babies — down 2 million from 2004, when Lord of the Rings dominated. On the bright side, Rock did manage to lure more young people to the tube; ratings among viewers 18 to 34 were up. read more
