Charlie Sheen Frees Himself From Coupledom

... What a week for Charlie Sheen! Parties in New York! Parties in Los Angeles! A trashed hotel room! Hookers everywhere! Mounds of cocaine! It's probably pretty hard to live that kind of care-free life with a wife, so the Two and A Half Men star and Brooke Mueller are getting a divorce. Aww, Brooke, won't you give him a 134th chance? [US Magazine]

... Earlier this year, we were robbed of seeing two of the greatest reality show contestants in TV history in all the glory they deserve to be seen in: We had to settle for viewing The Amazing Race's Ivy League male a capella singers in standard definition. Well, CBS has finally realized its mistake. The next edition of the long-running series will be in HD. We want a do-over so we can see that watermelon in the face in 1080p. [The Live Feed]

... Salma Hayek is bringing another telenovela to American audiences. She's sold an adaptation of Los Roldan to ABC, where she previously produced telenovela-turned-series Ugly Betty. The new program centers on a poor man who scores a high-paying job after he saves the life of a powerful woman. But will there be a man in a bee suit? [Variety]

... Shonda Rhimes' new medical drama Off the Map will debut on January 12, a Wednesday. That's a day before her other shows, Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. [Shonda's Twitter]

... Demi Lovato, Disney princess and star of Sonny With a Chance, is already cracking under the pressure of Mickey's demands. The 18-year-old pop star has dropped out of her tour with the Jonas Brothers to get treatment for emotional distress. A source told tabloids that she's battled eating disorders, bullying, and self-inflicted cutting. Yeesh! [People]

... The Hollywood Reporter has done a random poll, asking viewers about their late-night TV-watching habits, and guess what? Republicans and rich people like Jay Leno, and lonely heathens love Conan O'Brien! [THR]

... And now for your weekly dose of blog-being-turned-into-a-TV-show news. ABC has won the bidding war for Dealbreaker, based on a blog of the same name about things that make a date go from good to bad. Hooray for network desperation! [Deadline Hollywood]

The fact that Charlie Sheen is a whore banging, coke snorting nutbar, doesn't surprise me at all. What shocks me is millions of people actually tune in to 2 and a half men. Worst show on tv. and I blame the millions of idiots who watch this crap and pay Sheen's obnoxiously high salary. The guy cant act. He's just playing his douchy self.

You know, it's really telling that Isiah Washington gets canned referring to a coworker using a homophobic epithet, but even after Sheen has had repeated issues with violence and violence against women, no one is calling for his firing from Two-and-a-Half Men? To keep the comment here short, I've posted more at http://thorswitch.posterous.com/how-does-this-make-any-sense-a-tale-of-two-ac

"Los Roldan" is an Argentinian TV show...you can say it's a telenovela because it aired everyday of the week ( not in weekends ), but it was in the primetime.
It sucked so much ( like everything on the Argentinian TV )...so good luck with that.

PS: I'm from Argentina...
PS2: TV is going to die :(

poor demi but thats what she gets for going with disney. everyone knows their reputation by now. convenient that this comes up after her getting in big trouble for the prank she pulled on halloween where she said she was getting married. if she were to pull a zoey 101 and get knocked up we'd never hear from her again :P

Makes sense. Leno's show is horrible and so are republicans.

I definitely didn't think that marriage would last a week, let alone for however long it truly did last.

Did anybody even expect Charlie and Brooke's marriage to last?

Is Liz Lemon hosting this "Dealbreaker" thing? If not, that's a dealbreaker.
