With the poor economy and the abundance of recent college graduates struggling to find a job, the film Post Grad starring Alexis Bledel takes advantage of this situation in hopes of drawing a crowd. In fact it is a nice counter programming to Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Inglorious Basterds. Post Grad does have a nice cast that includes Batman Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch and FNL’s Zach Gilford. Too bad the film is struggling to find good reviews, but if Roger Ebert likes it, it can’t be that bad can it?
After the jump, revisiting The Time Traveler’s Wife, Snoop Dogg tackles Millionaire and some old Ah-nold footage that the Governator doesn’t want you to see.

Megan Fox will be appearing on SNL in September to kick off the new season (and promote Jennifer’s Body). I’m sure Andy Samberg will have a gift for her that’s located inside a box or perhaps he’ll just simply jizz in his pants when she walks onto the stage. (Life and Style)

The CW is afraid that we can see through their not-so-intelligent programming for the fall, so they’re going to use sex to sell their shows (e.g. the quasi-nude posters for The Beautiful Life). Perhaps Smallville and Supernatural will be taking part in these ad campaigns in the near future. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. The TV Addict throws in a Smallville ad for the ladies out there. Not sure if Clark Kent would appreciate having the word ‘Smallville’ plastered in front of his *ahem* (The TV Addict)
In other Smallville news, take a look at the season 9 preview. (Ausiello)

Thanks to the moderate success at the box office last weekend, ABC may be looking into bringing The Time Traveler’s Wife to the boobtube. While the story for The Time Traveler’s Wife came out before NBC’s Journeyman, I have to note that if people didn’t tune into the NBC show, how should we expect this to succeed? (Collider)
At this weekend’s box office. Inglorious Basterds gives Quentin Tarantino his best opening day since Kill Bill Vol. 2. Meanwhile District 9 is still doing some decent box office business. Unfortunately Post Grad is barely making a blip this weekend. Where are those Gilmore Girls and Friday Night Lights fans out there? (Box Office Prophets)
Meanwhile Bruce Willis (who starred alongside Alexis in Sin City) will be making a cameo appearance in Sylvester Stallone’s latest effort The Expendables. It seems like he will be appearing on screen with the Governator. Now that sounds awesome. (IGN)
I’m sure the Arnold Schwarzenegger would rather not have this see the light of day, but thanks to the wonderful world of the internet, a compilation of all the silly ads he did in Japan have surfaced. Ok people, after watching this, take a moment to remember this is the man running California right now.

Finally, Family Guy deserves an Emmy.
