If you’ve turned on NBC some time in the past month (which you probably have, if for no other reason than to watch Celebrity Cooking Showdown) you know that Last Comic Standing is starting up tonight. You’ve seen Doug Benson in the commercials. You know you’re gonna watch.
Surprisingly, on top of LCS there’s a lot on tonight. Liz Phair guest stars on Pepper Dennis, Jamie Kennedy is Blowin’ Up on MTV, and Kathy Griffin offers
masochists viewers a sneak peek of her upcoming show on Bravo. So what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!

The Black Eyed Peas met Nelson Mandela during a stint in Africa where they launched a children’s charity and played a free concert. The band was happy they could make a difference. Frontman will.i.am told reporters that he hoped his own struggle to pursue a music career would motivate South African kids to strive for a better life. And Fergie wore a shirt that said I love ponies.
1. Not even hacky Brett Ratner’s staggering mediocrity could scare people away from this beloved comic book franchise. Hell, he even got my ten bucks – $120 million
2. Tom Hanks could star in a silent film about narcoleptic investment bankers and you would still flock to see it. Awful haircut or not, people love Tom Hanks – $43 million
3. Didn’t anyone go outside this weekend? – $35 million
4. I’ll probably just Netflix this one – $8.5 million
5. “No, but this time the sinking boat is upside down. Seriously guys, it’s different!” – $7 million
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcomed a daughter into the world via caesarean on Saturday and named her, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. Aww what a sweet name, and unlike Suri it actually means something: Shiloh Nouvel translates directly to the New Messiah. It’s too soon to know if she’s the second coming, but with her $5 million picture deal with US Weekly going straight to the children’s charity UNICEF, she may be the holiest celebrity baby on the planet. Suck it, Moses Martin.

There are certain readers of this blog, let’s call them “Claymaniacs” for lack of a better term, who get very angry with us whenever we even implicity call into question the sexual preferences of their beloved almost-Idol, Clay Aiken. They leave comment after comment, incredulous as to how we could possibly get these wacky ideas that Clay is anything but the paradigm of woman-loving masculinity. Well, to those people, we submit this video, possibly the gayest thing I’ve ever seen outside of cutoff denim shorts and military boots. I mean, Ryan Seacrest is the straightest thing happening on that stage, if that tells you anything. Enjoy this performance of a song made famous by Elton John, George Michael and Freddie Mercury – as sung by Clay Aiken and his loving male counterpart:
