Michael Crichton, whose contributions to pop culture ranged from the human drama of ER and Disclosure to the sci-fi adventures Jurassic Park and the Andromeda Strain, has died after what his family called "a private battle with cancer." He was 66.
Dubious congratulations are in order: Ralph Nader became the first public figure to make a stupid and offensive public remark about our first African-American president, telling a Fox News affiliate that Barack Obama has to choose between being "Uncle Sam for the people of this country, or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations."
President elect Barack Obama, Vice-President elect Joe Biden
It was an historic night, and the networks mostly made us proud -- except for a handful of gaffes and some sci-fi-like technology they should maybe save for a brighter tomorrow. Here's our look at the most powerful, ridiculous, and notable moments of Election Night 2008.
Tina Fey, Bob Schieffer and Rachel Maddow
Not all the winners in a presidential election go to Washington. Some jump into the political fray to get laughs, higher ratings, or their own show on MSNBC. Here's our look at the stars - and one city - that have already won or lost in Campaign '08.
Megan Hauserman, one of the most manipulative and watchable of the competitors on VH1's Charm School, left the show this week after hitting the eavesdropping Brandi M.
"The one thing I cannot stand is violence," Charm School headmaster Sharon Osbourne explained, as she expelled the bikini-prone former contestant on Beauty and the Geek, Rock of Love, and I Love Money.
Hauserman explained that she kicked Brandi M. out of fear that she would hurt her dog, Lily, who has inspired Hauserman's dream of starting a foundation for mentally challenged dogs.
We talked to Hauserman before the airing of her final episode, in which she left with the ultimate kiss-off: "Charm School was a (expletive) nightmare. I can't wait to go back to my best life ever, where I just lay out and tan and eat sushi and tan." Here are the highlights of our talk.
Rock of Love's Charm School
Taming the wayward women of VH1's Charm School would be a tough job for anyone – except Sharon Osbourne. She's the one who took over Ozzy Osbourne's career after his firing from the seminal Black Sabbath, saved him from booze and drugs, and led him through more comebacks than you can count.
The Charm School attendees – all of them former competitors for Poison singer Bret Michaels' fickle affections on Rock of Love – gave Osbourne plenty of trouble with boozing, feuds, and screaming matches as they competed for $100,000 and the title of Charm School Queen. The unflappable Mrs. Osbourne called us (exactly on time, of course) to talk about why Charm School was a learning experience for her, too.
Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan
Tracy Morgan says his 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin helped pull him out of one of the lowest moments in his life.
"When I got my second DUI, Alec was the main one counseling me. He's a passionate dude," Morgan says in the latest issue of New York Magazine.
See what else the 30 Rock star had to say after the jump.
Senator Barack Obama
Barack Obama delivered a three-network prime time pitch to the nation, and didn't even delay the World Series to do it.
