Despite enviably having the American Idol finale lead-in for its premiere, Fox’s On the Lot is averaging a mere 3.1 million viewers in its ever-changing time slot. I know my buddy MK over at popbytes likes the show, but I just couldn’t get into it. They keep switching up hosts (Is it Chelsea Handler? Is it Adrianna Costa? Any chance of Rosie O’Donnell next week?) and judges (I was initially promised a weekly Brett Ratner!) and formats (Weren’t they making a film in teams at one point?). There’s such a lack of consistency on the show that I honestly couldn’t even figure out whose picture I was supposed to use at the top of this post. Do not confuse the bloggers, Fox. We’re not big on solving puzzles — that’s why we have commenters.
And, frankly, there’s a very good reason why there’s not a large market for short films. Audiences don’t want to tune in to watch them for an hour. I’m not sure how that little tidbit didn’t arise in initial testing for the show. Anyway, if you are, against all odds, finding yourself a fan of the show, don’t get too attached. I doubt it’ll even make it to the end of the season, and none of these kids will get a job at DreamWorks, which is probably just the way Steven Spielberg wants it, anyway.
Thanks to Defamer for the heads-up.
I waited a while for this…partially because of the random responses. Seriously. Doris Roberts and Ray Romano???
The winner of our guessing game.
Which married actress in a hit prime-time show has been propositioning her boyish co-star? She recently texted him while he was on vacation in Mexico, saying: â€œWe have chemistry – I really think we could make it work.â€

iâ€™m gonna guess jenna fischer from the office and bj novack!
I will be on top of this little item and hopefully figure out really who it is. My vote was always Jenna and either BJ or hottie John Krasinski.
Lindsay Lohan’s mom lied about being a Rockette. For shame! [Cele|bitchy]
Cameron Diaz’s new boyfriend, magician Criss Angel, drops 40 feet in a closed box for a stunt in NYC. And just in case that didn’t make a loud enough thud, he proceeds to drops Cameron’s name, too. [Yeeeah!]
Meanwhile, the ever-groundbreaking Justin Timberlake signs a YouTube star to his new record label, because this Internet thing seems like it’s really going to take off. [IBBB]
Meanwhile still, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s bringing breast-feeding back. [The Blemish]
Sobriety hasn’t done much for Courtney Love’s tone-deafness, but it’s still kinda cool to watch her perform her new single, Pacific Coast Highway. [popbytes]
Kate Bosworth is totally making out with Liv Tyler. I know you don’t remember who Liv Tyler is — don’t worry, no one does — but the pics should jog your memory. [SOW]
This fabulous post is called “The Evolution of Joan Rivers’ Face,” which is kind of a misnomer, because it hasn’t changed a bit since 1970. [Celebrity Smack]
Christina Aguilera celebrates the 30th birthday of her total hottie husband. [Derek Hail]
Glamour named Victoria Beckham “Woman of the Year,” for reasons I cannot even being to imagine. Fortunately, she came to the awards ceremony dressed to prove without a doubt that she has a vagina. [Celeb Warship]
Once your film has conquered North America in all its arguably homoerotic glory, what’s next? Where can you bring this film where the violent nature, the man-love, and the fact that it was released in the U.S. a full three months ago will all be deeply appreciated?
Gerard Butler and his penis were on-hand at the Meiji Shrine to premiere the film in Japan. Enjoy.
You know we’re always on PerezWatch around here, and, even if you guys don’t think it’s interesting, we do. So on June 5, Perez put up this post. By this morning, it was down. The permalink still works, but it’s not accessible from his main page. Screenshots are in the thumbnails, but here’s the text:
It’s 4 PM Pacific and we’ll be at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at the CAA Building in Century City until 4:30.
Oh yeah, Colin Farrell is right outside smoking a cig and talking to a bunch of people.
We might go ask him about that lawsuit he filed against us last year.
Come and say hi – to Colin or Perez!
Update: It’s 4:22 P.M. and Colin is still here. We’d go up to him but he looks like he smells. A lot.
So why’d he pull it?
Is it related to the lawsuit? Did CAA not want the additional foot traffic?
Anyone have theories?
Mr. Wentz turned 28 on June 5, and celebrated the occasion at Angels & Kings in NYC, with girlfriend Ashlee Simpson close by. No one else particularly famous was there, unless you count Tila Tequila (and I don’t).
