- Kimmel returning to late night
Meanwhile, Dave is still trying to get his exemption for the writers, which we hope that he doesn’t. Craig Ferguson, of course, supposedly improvises his monologue every night. (BTW, that "supposedly" wasn’t meant to be depreciating — at least one of the ‘Loper women loves Craig — just not sure if it’s true or not.) In limbo: the very-much written Comedy Central shows, which — ironically or not — we miss the most.

- Indie Bands Sue Camel, Rolling Stone Over Ad
While we’re sure that these bands are outraged — OUTRAGED!! — at being associated with smoking, because no self-respecting indie rocker has ever even looked at a cigarette, we still feel that Rolling Stone should be sued for not mentioning The Replacements.
- Microsoft Lets Everyone Try Windows XP SP3

- Just Call Her Aunt Britney
Britney Spears’ 16-year old sister is pregnant (also confirms dangers of inbreeding by stating that her pregnancy was "so unexpected", reminding us that even the rich and famous don’t understand how reproduction works). From the news report: "Coincidentally, Lynne Spears’ book about her experiences raising two daughters in the glare of the media spotlight has been postponed indefinitely, her publisher confirmed Tuesday." Yeah, probably to rework the chapters on effective parenting.
