  • Viral Video: Is Disgruntled Office Guy Real? Monday, 9 Jun 2008 | 1:15 PM ET

    AND YOU THINK YOU'RE HAVING A BAD DAY AT THE OFFICE: Here are two videos of one office worker who apparently can't take it anymore. Something sets him off, and he starts throwing things. The videos are making the rounds on the Internet, igniting debate over whether they're authentic, or just well-crafted put-ons. They look pretty real to me. (Note: Content may be considered mature.

    "Forget bartending school, I am going to the school of bud. BTW - as I sit at my desk in pain (played 3 hours of hoops last night and my knees are not happy with me) I wonder, how come Vicodin doesn't come in more than one flavor or variety..."

  • Nearly 32 million people tuned in. Good news, bad news for News Corp. Good news--ratings didn't slip, as they have been most of the season. Bad news--David and David were so much better than Jordin and Blake a year ago, the competition so much stiffer, why didn't the ratings outperform?

  • American Idol Upset: Cook Beats Archuleta Thursday, 22 May 2008 | 9:33 AM ET
    David Cook

    Not only did David Cook beat David Archuleta (as many of you predicted), it was Cook who provided the "knock-out" with a 12 million vote margin of victory. The moment was amazing to watch (though Cook's mother insists on oozing into frame) after two very long hours of several "Up With People"-type ensemble numbers...

  • American Idol: David Archuleta Should Win, But Will Fox? Wednesday, 21 May 2008 | 12:40 PM ET
    David Archuleta

    From a business perspective, since Simon declared last night "a knock-out" for Archuleta, I wonder if that may hurt ratings for tonight's finale. Sure, it'll still be huge for Fox, owned by News Corp, but maybe not quite so huge if everyone assumes it's a fait accompli.

  • American Idol's Sour Notes Wednesday, 14 May 2008 | 12:59 PM ET
    David Cook

    Can you imagine if Syesha is not sent home tonight? Don't care anymore? Fox is losing viewers from its reality TV category killer, but the show is still #1. That's enough to keep Ford ponying up money to force contestants to make those dorky music videos.

  • Britney's Trash

    Tell me if this isn't the most ingeniously parasitical way to make a living: There are some guys who videotape themselves going around Hollywood digging through celebrity trash, and then they turn that trash into treasure on eBay.

  • Fake Jane

    This is awesome! Fake Jane has learned that Mariah Carey has allegedly married Nick Cannon, who's eleven years younger than she is (though her new hubby reportedly re-gifted her engagement ring from his previous fiancée--not a good sign). AND "NO TIME" FOR A PRENUP!

    Defense giants Boeing and Northrop Grumman keep going at it over the Air Force tanker deal. This as the clock ticks down on a Government Accounting Office investigation into whether the current decision should stand.

  • Starbucks

    Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is trying to get Starbucks focused on coffee--which means the entertainment business it's been building up over the past four years is now due to be pared down. Late Wednesday Starbucks unveiled weaker-than-expected estimates for its fiscal second quarter and year -- sending Starbucks shares down a whopping ten percent Thursday.

    On "American Idol" (before the decision last night), Jeff D. wrote: "I think Brooke is going home this week. she played the piano like a 10-year-old kid. It was very amateurish and stood out--and her stuff about the wedding was like WHO CARES. I think people are tired of her..she gives off too much drama on the show."
