Um… Michael Ian Black!—will share their insights into the wackiest, most hilarious decade that’s nearly 8/10ths over.
In addition to the obligatory Britney Read More
Michael Hirschorn, the lowbrow celebreality guru and highbrow Atlantic Monthly columnist, is on the verge of signing a new deal to serve a much different role at Vh1, where he has served as Executive Vice President of Original Programming since January of 2006, according to sources familiar with the situation. Details of Mr. Hirschorn’s new Read More
One day in 2002, Michael Hirschorn of VH1 was thumbing through an obscure music magazine when he happened upon an article about a BBC TV show. At the time, Mr. Hirschorn was on a frantic search for creative new programming ideas that might give the struggling cable channel a shot in the arm, and something Read More
Well, since we got ourselves all involved in the question earlier, we listlessly inform you that Perez Hilton will not be appearing in Rosie O'Donnell's old spot on The View.

Wearing a dark pinstripe suit, open white shirt, mirror sunglasses and braided pony tail, Ice-T walked into the Blue Room for his City Hall press conference. “We were here lobbyin for movie stuff and we got it,” he boasted to a gaggle of political reporters.
