Is is just me, or has Gossip Girl jumped the shark in the most ridiculous way possible?

How can Big Brother still be running? I'll admit the first series was quite fun, but how is it possibly as popular as it is? It starts tonight in the UK, for anyone reading this from a different country, and already the internet is a-buzz with 'who will be in the house?' 'what will the furniture look like?' and most importantly, 'what hilarious gimmicks will BB come up with this year?'

It's starting to seem like every other programme on tv is a reality one - thank God for Lovefilm and Sky+

On a more serious note, this http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/8076253.stm has really got to me. This level of hate and intolerance is shocking and hard to comprehend, imo. And regardless of your stance on the abortion issue, in my (limited) experience, most women having a late-term abortion (after 21 weeks) are doing it for very serious medical reasons and not as a lifestyle choice, so the targeting of one of the doctors who perform this kind of abortion is probably not making the kind of statement his murderer was hoping for.

Ah, Lost...why are you so very confusing, and yet so completely addictive...?

And how very cool is Sayid looking at the moment? Even more dark and dangerous than before!
