Did anyone see the plastic surgery disaster that is Renee Zellweger on Letterman last night? The skin was stretched so hard over her face I thought her skull was going to pop out. OK so maybe it isn't plastic surgery, Botox anyone? What is wrong with her?? Tracey Ullman has her dead on in "State of the Union".

Also, in yesterday'sWall Street Journal, there's an article about NBC's new 52-week, wait, now "65-week" lineup, tasty tidbits revealed are: the "Heroes" spinoff ("Heroes: Origins") has been canned, there will be a retelling of the story of Robinson Crusoe, and there will be a spinoff from "The Office" - "The Office" spinoff won't go on the air until after next years' Super Bowl which is far enough away for a. us to learn more about the show long before it airs, and b. NBC to cancel it before it ever airs.
