Today's News: Our Take


OHMYGAWD! WHERE DID YOUR HAIR GO?

Twentieth Television is producing a syndicated series based on the popular Classmates.com website. The show — slated to debut this summer — reunites former classmates who went from being pretty and popular to butt-ugly and despised. At least that's the version I want to see. read more

LOSING HAND

The luck is running out for FX's new John Corbett comedy/drama Lucky. After debuting to solid Nielsens on April 8, the show lost nearly half of its adults 18-49 audience in week two. The network, however, is looking on the bright side. The series did beat its lead-in Deuce Bigelow, Male Gigolo by 44 percent. It's a small, pitiful, embarrassing victory, but it's better than nothing, I suppose. read more

CAN YOU DIG IT?

Moviegoers dug new family flick Holes, which debuted at No. 2 at the box office over the weekend with a better-than-expected $17.1 million. Nearly half of the film's audience was over 18, surprising insiders who predicted the movie would play only to kids. Anger Management, meanwhile, maintained its No. 1 position for the second consecutive weekend. The Adam Sandler-Jack Nicholson comedy grossed another $25.6 million, bringing its 10-day total to $80.3 million. Rounding out the top five: Jamie Kennedy's hip-hop parody Malibu's Most Wanted (No. 3 with $13.1 million), martial-arts comedy Bulletproof Monk (No. 4 with $8.6 million) and Phone Booth (No. 5 with $5.7 million). read more

SHE'S BACK

Kelly Ripa returned to Live with Regis and Kelly today following a two month-long maternity leave and unveiled what Reege called "a new body and a new hairdo." Translation: She's got bigger boobs and longer bangs. And as expected, she didn't let her poor co-host get a word in edgewise. read more

SHOW OF SUPPORT

Jay Leno will devote the April 24 and 25 editions of The Tonight Show to America's armed forces. The first night will have only military personnel in the audience, and the second show will entertain family and friends of military personnel. Both shows will be followed by a barbecue featuring Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins as the main course. read more

HE'S SORT OF SORRY

Baseball Hall of Fame president Dale Petroskey issued a backhanded apology to Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon on Friday. Petroskey — who nixed a Bull Durham celebration due to the couple's anti-war rhetoric — admitted he should've called the actors last week before canceling the event. Robbins responded by saying, "I appreciate Petroskey's non-apology apology." read more

EVERYBODY WILL MISS RAYMOND

Ray Romano continues to hint that next season may be Everybody Loves Raymond's last. At a Tiger Woods Foundation event over the weekend, the Emmy winner was asked how he keeps his sitcom fresh and original after eight years. His response? "You stop after one more year." Heaps of cash might also do the trick. read more

NEW SCOOBY SNACK

SHORT CUTS

Erika Christensen, Mike Vogel and Katherine Heigl are in final negotiations to headline MTV's upcoming musical adaptation of Wuthering Heights, according to The Hollywood Reporter...

Latina It Girl Branches Out


With three movies out this spring and her music album slated for July, it's clear why Roselyn Sanchez is one of Premiere's "It" actresses of 2003. She's an uptight lawyer in Chasing Papi, a sexy cruise-ship dancer in Boat Trip and a butch army ranger in Basic. The 33-year-old Puerto Rican says she's just relieved her roles finally require her to act.

"I don't want to be just the sexy Latina," sighs Sanchez, who got her big break as an FBI agent in Rush Hour 2. Still, she's up front about why her options have been limited. "I have a problem getting rid of my accent in English," she admits. "I've been here [in America] read more
