… CBS' CSI has won a nice trophy for the top of Les Moonves' fridge. The 50th Monte Carlo TV Festival, the biggest global TV awards show in the world, gave CSI the International Television something-or-other, which basically declares it the highest-rated program in the world, beating House, which won last year. This is the third time the show has won the award, proving that the world does not like to be challenged. [CBS via press release]

… Spike TV's Half Pint Brawlers, which chronicles little people who make a living as wrestlers, has drawn ire from the Little People of America. What a shocker! The LPA is speaking out against the show's use of the derogatory term "midget," which is uttered non-stop on the docu-drama. The stars of the show responded by putting the LPA in the Camel Clutch. [TMZ]

… NBC has ordered the game show pilot Who's Bluffing Who?, hosted by D.L. Hughley. The format is such: Seven contestants lie their way toward money and prizes. This show sounds awesome and I will watch it every single day. No word on whether this is aimed for primetime or daytime, though. In the spirit of the show, one of the sentences in this blurb is a total lie. Can you guess which one? [THR]

… Annoying Real Housewives of New Jersey "star" Danielle Staub has a sex tape out. Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson also has one out. Staub is 47 years old. Kendra turns 25 tomorrow. And Staub believes her sexcapades will outsell Kendra's amateur skin folly. Looks like dementia has set in early. [TMZ]

FlashForward fans, all two dozen of them, have carried out their plans to stage a dramatic save-the-show campaign. Supporters mimicked the canceled drama's main mystery: A two-minute-and-seventeen-second blackout. In other words, a bunch of people gathered together and took a power nap for a few minutes. Just do it under your desk, like normal people! [Deadline]
