Howard Stern and David Letterman
Howard Stern must be thrilled that CBS is looking to re-up Late Show host David Letterman's contract through 2012.
The Sirius Radio shock jock stopped by The Late Show Monday, and during his time in the chair, he praised Letterman while taking shots at Dave's new late-night rival and the prime time-bound Jay Leno.
"We've got to beat this Conan," Stern said. "How are you feeling that Jay left late-night television, and now we've got a new guy to compete with?"
Stern, who gave credit to Letterman for putting the radio host on the map, continued to rail on Leno, even to the point that Letterman became visibly uncomfortable. In particular, Stern called out Leno's ...
Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection (Blu-ray)
If you're anything like us, the recent theatrical release/franchise reboot of Star Trek probably made you a tad nostalgic for the original Kirk, Spock and the rest of the USS Enterprise.

Stephen Colbert with General Ray Odierno
Stephen Colbert kicked off his week of Colbert Report tapings in Iraq by shaving his head.
Though Colbert's jokes got plenty of laughs, the loudest roar came when Gen. Ray Odierno — following a direct order pre-taped by President Barack Obama — shaved the funnyman's hair. Watch it all after the jump.
Bret Michaels' run-in with some scenery at the Tony Awards fractured his nose and required stitches in his lip, but the rocker was able to laugh it off.
"He told me, 'All I remember is Shrek and the donkey helping me up, and Liza [Minnelli] giving me a towel,'" Michaels' rep, Joann Mignano, told People. "And Bret was laughing when he heard [host] Neil Patrick Harris said he gave new meaning to 'headbanging.'"
The Rock of Love star was exiting the stage Sunday after performing with his band, Poison, when he was hit with a piece of scenery and knocked to the ground. The band performed a rendition of its hit, "Nothin' But a Good Time" with the cast of Rock of Ages. (Watch the video here.)
Michaels had X-Rays taken and underwent a CAT scan Monday to be on the safe side, Mignano said. "His neck ...

After months of speculation about American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert's sexuality, the rocker tells Rolling Stone he is gay and even had a crush on winner Kris Allen.
"I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," Lambert told the magazine. "I'm proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It's just another part of me."
Though Lambert initially wanted to clear the air as soon as Idol ended, he said he waited ...
The Wrestler (Blu-ray)
All the praise that's been heaped on this moving tale of a broken-down pro wrestler struggling to remain relevant despite his failing body is deserved. (The Academy really snubbed this one in the Best Picture race.) The standout, of course, is Mickey Rourke, whose portrayal of Randy "The Ram" will have even the big boys searching for their hankies by the time this one's down for the count.
Rourke's masterful performance is beautifully matched by turns from Evan Rachel Wood as Randy's bitter estranged daughter and Marisa Tomei, whose aging stripper is — like Randy — struggling to stay in her own game. All of these characters are so vivid and real, and in the hands of Darren Aronofsky, they continually remind us that life must still be lived once the spotlight fades and the crowd stops cheering.
The bonus features on the release are scarce, but they pack a serious punch. In addition to ...
