This, that, the other:
-- It's been reported that Jimmy Fallon will be succeeding Conan O'Brien on "Late Night" when Conan shifts up an hour to host "The Tonight Show" in 2009. Somewhere, Horatio Sanz is already giggling.
-- It's been reported that Amy Winehouse was recently cautioned by police after committing "common assault" by slapping a man. No word yet on whether anyone at the police station took the time to explain to Winehouse what the word "caution" means.
-- Tina Fey's comedy Baby Mama toddled its way to the top of the box office charts this week (toddled?) with an $18.3 million take. The funny reigned at the multiplexes in this final week before the Summer Movie Season with three of the top four slots taken up by laugh-fests Baby Mama, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The other film in the top four is The Forbidden Kingdom which isn't a comedy, but is laughable.
-- Tattooed love girl Carly Smithson was the latest "American Idol" departer. Her reaction seemed more like relief than anything else. I can understand that; think of the nerve-wracking, constant pressure on that show. And that's just from constantly stifling the urge to cold cock David Archuletta.
Well, gotta go. If I stay away too long, I lose my place in line for Iron Man.
