Young Justice, Jesse McCartney
Pop star Jesse McCartney is proving he's not just another pretty face by expanding his voice-over résumé. The 23-year-old heartthrob has already racked up several video game credits and provides the high-pitched squeals of Theodore in the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. Now he's now suiting up as Batman's crime fighting apprentice, Robin, in Cartoon Network's Young Justice. The new series (which had a sneak preview in November and now airs weekly), features a team of second-generation heroes from the pages of DC Comics, including Superboy, Aqualad, Kid Flash and Miss Martian (who is the focus of this week's episode, "Welcome to Happy Harbor").

Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere
Heroes' stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia have broken up, and the jury is out as to whether it was 12-year age difference or the new man in Panettiere's life — Jesse McCartney.
The couple called it quits within the last week, according to Usmagazine.com. The magazine said a source close to the couple explained differing lifestyles were at fault for the split: "They were in very different places."

Sara Paxton, The Party Never Stops: Diary of a Binge Drinker
While real college freshmen labor to fit in and go with the flow, Sara Paxton is just pretending to struggle with classes, hangovers and peer pressure in The Party Never Stops: Diary of a Binge Drinker (premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET, on Lifetime). The 18-year-old star of Aquamarine didn't have to stretch her acting too far from her own self, knowing what it's like to feel clueless about the fatal dangers of drinking. Researching the statistics only made her want to spread the devastating facts even more. Paxton spoke with TVGuide.com about the challenge she wanted to face with this role, the Hollywood club scene and talented celebrities who party too much.

Kimberly Caldwell, Rosanna Tavarez and Chris Booker were awesome hosts and set the proper tone for Fox's awards show. Speaking of which…8:00 pm Gwen Stefani opens the show with her No. 1 hit "Hollaback Girl." Can I stress how much I love the original, unedited version and how much I detest the edited version? I know it's network TV, but why perform the song if it has to be edited? Sing "Rich Girl" or something else. All those "shhh" sounds go right through me. OK — got that off my chest.8:06 I said this about the MTV Movie Awards and I'll say it here. How does Andy Dick continue to get booked on these awards each year? So. Not. Funny.8:12 Jim Car
