Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is criticizing Natalie Portman for glamorizing out-of-wedlock pregnancy.
During a radio appearance on The Michael Medved Show, Huckabee agreed with the radio host that seeing a visibly pregnant Portman on stage at Sunday's Academy Awards was "problematic" because she is not married to her fiancé and Black Swan choreographer, Benjamin Millepied.
Here's a breakdown of what kind of 2010 midterm elections coverage you can expect and where:

Kris Allen, Mike Huckabee
Forget Adam Lambert and Jamie Foxx. Kris Allen's first post-American Idol duet is with a former Republican presidential candidate: Mike Huckabee.
Allen, a Conway, Ark., native, teamed with Huckabee, the ex-governor of his home state, for a duet of The Beatles' "Yesterday" on Huckabee's Fox News Channel talk show, scheduled to air Saturday.

What's a former governor and presidential candidate to do when it's all over? For Mike Huckabee, it's heading to TV. In a move similar to many a retired sports star, the 2008 Republican White House hopeful has joined the Fox News Channel's series America's Election HQ as a contributing pundit.Huckabee, who was previously governor of Arkansas, withdrew his candidacy in March, when John McCain's delegate count qualified him as the presumptive GOP pick. Per Variety, former governor will now be a regular contributor to HQ. Will you be tuning in for his analyses? If we're lucky, maybe he'll invite celeb fan Chuck Norris to the set.

It was Oscar's 80th birthday, but it only felt like Sunday night's show went on for 70 years. (Official count: three hours, 20 minutes.) Its an annual ritual, beating up on the annual Academy Awards broadcast for being too long, bloated, boring. That can especially be a problem when the show is as free of surprise as this year's was true, Marion Cotillard's victory over Julie Christie for best actress was unexpected (though well earned), and I loved her gracious and giddy speech (one of the night's few truly memorable and spontaneous moments), but seriously, how many people saw either of their movies?In a year when most of the major film contenders fell something short of cultural phenomena, it's up to the host to make the show relevant and dynamic. Jon Stewart had his work cut out for him, with precious little prep time thanks to the writers strike, not to mention the preoccupation of an ongoing, historic presidential campaign that inspired some of his best jokes...
Fred Armisen as Senator Barack Obama on Saturday Night Live by Dana Edelson/NBC Photo
Cheers to Saturday Night Live for pulling out all the stops with its first post-strike episode. Fred Armisen's Barack Obama impression was surprisingly subtle: The hardest part, Armisen tells TV Guide exclusively, was "figuring out the volume of his voice. It seems to be a combination of loud and not so loud at the same time. Even when he is being emotional, there is a calmness to him." SNL scored big with delightful cameos from Obama Girl, Steve Martin and Gov. Mike Huckabee (whose future may not lie in the White House but at the Chuckle Hut). Plus, the Annuale commercial parody was an instant classic, and Bill Hader's spoof of Daniel Day-Lewis was dead-on. And how cool was it to see Tina "Bitch is the New Black" Fey return to the real 30 Rock, but this time as guest host? Welcome back, Tina and SNL!Related: Saturday Night Live's Ratings?

It was no holds barred, we tell you!

Not only did Mike Huckabee best all other Republican contenders in Thursday's Iowa caucuses, collecting 35 percent of the GOP vote, he did so while ponying up a fraction of what Barack Obama did to claim victory among his own party (earning 38 percent of the Democratic lovin'). With candidates overall spending on Iowa-targeted TV spots quintuple what they did in '04, Obama's campaign shelled out more than $9.5 million, more than any other contender. And Huckabee? A mere $1.4 million. Now that's priceless. Ben Katner

Late Show with David Letterman returns on Wednesday not only with his writing staff (see our Strike Watch blog) but Robin Williams as his lead-off guest, says the AP. Also onboard for the evening is Shooter Jennings, with Donald Trump bumped to Friday. On Thursday, Dave welcomes Bill Maher, Ellen Page and a performance from Broadway's Young Frankenstein.Meanwhile, all eyes are on the late-night talkers that have not hammered out an agreement with the WGA (as Worldwide Pants' Letterman and Craig Ferguson did), and thus might have a harder time luring talent across a picket line. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tonight Show with Jay Leno is expected to have former Arkansas governor and White House hopeful Mike Huckabee as its first guest.Related: WGA Plans "Intense" Pressure on Returning Late-night Shows Letterman, Ferguson to Return with Writers, Thanks to WGA Deal
