Entertainment Link-Off: Break Glass In Case of Emergency

megan-fox-rs09-6Clearly Jackie had too much to drink last night because he’s still passed out or hung over so he isn’t here this weekend. I’m here to save the day and so is Megan Fox.

We had to put up with crap TV because of the writers strike and now we find out that Universal won’t be developing any more projects until 2010. (Variety)

The Emmys are tonight. While I won’t be watching, lots of people will just to see how they do in their Emmy pools.
