PopEater, an awesome blog on AOL, has had it with pseudo-celebrities Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of The Hills.

They’re leaving it up to their faithful readers to vote on whether or not they continue to cover the most annoying couple in the world.

This could be the beginning of a wonderful trend. PopEater is just one blog but the implications of a poll like this could ripple across the internet. As it stands, 70, 653 votes have been cast and 96% of the voters want to give the Speidi the boot.

So take 10 seconds and let your voice be heard.

It’s a holiday weekend! If you’re not spending your final hours of summer getting outside, sucking down ice cream cones or wearing all of the white clothes you can, feel free to stay inside and catch all the action on the boob tube.

The good folks over at one of my favorite TV blogs, The Remote Island, put together a pretty comprehensive list of all of the marathons this Labor Day weekend.

I’ve already got my DVR locked and loaded. In honor of the kickoff of the college football season tomorrow, I’ll be watching a few dozen episodes of Coach on Sunday, hungover as hell. That Dauber makes me laugh every time…especially after five or six beers.

Pro: The Big 4 Networks (sans raunchy kid brother Fox) are teaming up next Friday to simulcast Stand Up To Cancer. The event is one hour of commercial free programming devoted to raising money for cancer research and organizations that help patients and families of those fighting the disease. TV and film actors, musicians and other famous types are appearing during the show. It should be quite the spectacle.

Con: Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett is rumored to be getting a prostate exam live during the event. In a word: Yikes.

Top Chef Season 2 runner-up Marcel “Giant Head/Bigger Ego” Vigneron was arrested and thrown in the clink on Saturday for a DUI.

Marcel posted the $2,500 bail and even managed to make it to a benefit event on Sunday.

Keep your nose out of the cooking sherry little buddy.

Life imitating art alert!

David Duchovny must’ve been doing a little too much method acting to prepare for his role as an oversexed writer on Californication. Duchovny checked himself into a facility for treatment and asked for privacy for his family.

I laughed out loud at the headline. It’s just too good. Not good for his family of course, but good for TV bloggers and misplaced laugh enthusiasts everywhere.

I haven’t given up on America’s Got Talent, but that may change this week. After a handful of excruciating months of awful acts, drunken critiques from David Hasselhoff and unnecessary commentary from Jerry Springer, the show is finally at the point where America gets to decide who stays and who goes.

And just as I thought they might, America botched the whole thing.

10 acts performed on Tuesday including two acts that can only be described as FIERCE! (I’m using the word as much as I can before Christian Siriano trademarks it!) Derrick Barry, the Britney Spears impersonator continued to dazzle with his dancing prowess and striking resemblance to the pop princess.

Then the show got even better when the DC Cowboys, an all-male dance company took the stage. It was like watching the pages of a soft core gay porn magazine coming to life. They danced, the camera zoomed-in on ass shots, and they didn’t wear undershirts. While they may not have made it long in the wild west, it was truly a fun performance.

So imagine my surprise when I tuned in to the results show yesterday to discover that both acts had been given the boot! You mean to tell me that America wasn’t impressed by a hot cross dresser and the gay dance troupe? I thought we’d come farther than that…okay I didn’t. But it’s still a little tragic. At least the creepy girl who beats up her dad didn’t get through either.

This French ad for the popular juice drink Orangina is taking some serious flack for being way too provocative. I don’t consider myself a prude, but after watching the 60 second commercial I couldn’t help but blush. That’s not an easy thing to do when you’re Black.

See for yourself:

I don’t think the ad would be half as bad if the roles were played by people as opposed to cartoon animals with human sex parts. And just how did these animals get access to these supplies, clothes and Orangina in the first place? I’m left with so many questions…and the urge to puke.
