GOOGLE did what?!?

He Said She Said, SHE SAID:

The Internet beast known as Google just gobbled up DoubleClick for a tiny sum of $3.1 billion. Chump change for the folks at Google.

My sources inside Googleplex Headquarters tell me this is part of a much larger foray into the online display advertising space. The deal came together pretty quickly, partly as a response to news that Microsoft was in talks to acquire DoubleClick. After a week of intense bidding, the boys at Google won out.

It certainly doesn't hurt that Google and Doubleclick both have office space in the same New York City building. This deal very likely began when a Googler sniffed out a Microsoft suit in the elevator blabbing about their acquisition strategy for DoubleClick. A quick call back to the Google home base in Moutain View, CA and a bidding war with Microsoft had begun.

Sometimes it really does happen just like in the movies. True story.

Bye bye Superman? Breaking News on SMALLVILLE

He Said She Said, HE SAID:

So what's this I hear about them killing off a major character on SMALLVILLE? It's true according to the witch of gossip over at E! Online.

Sources inside The CW reveal that one of 4 main castmembers - Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack or Kristin Kreuk - will be killed off in a secret plot twist by season's end. Who do you think it will be? I don't even watch this show and my money is on Chloe. No way they kill off Superman or Lex Luthor.

For those keeping score at home, YES I guess this makes me a TV dork. My secret it out.

another wasted night of LOST

I'm sorry - I've been a huge LOST fan ever since the first episode but even I'm beginning to lose my patience with this show. There needs to be more forward motion in terms of plot development. The flashback device is losing its luster. Seriously, what did last night's Kate flashback really reveal? That her Mom turned her in because she committed murder?!? No kiddin' sherlock. Kate, my advice would've been to phone ahead. You could've saved us the (unnecessary) drama and exposition.

Producers, please, I'm begging you. DO SOMETHING. ANYTHING. And do it quick. Because your beloved TV show aint the ratings darling it used to be. And in case you need some story suggestions, how 'bout explaining that igloo/Arctic scene from last season's cliffhanger and telling me where Rose has disappeared to. SERIOUSLY. I want some answers and I'm getting tired of waiting. And it's not the wait that's killing me. It's how tedious the entire LOST ride has gotten.

You've been warned.
