Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's happening in the world of entertainment today:

Scandal may have been good for David Letterman's ratings: The Hollywood Reporter says that the "Late Show" is up 13 percent in total viewers so far this season. Meanwhile, "The Tonight Show" has seen precipitous declines with Conan O'Brien at the helm.

"Michael Jackson's This Is It" had a strong opening overseas, The Los Angeles Times reports. Sony Pictures estimates that it made $68.5 million in 108 foreign territories. This is despite what was seen as a disappointing domestic box office.

Warner Bros. Pictures is now stepping in to advertise on Fox's upcoming special, "Family Guy Presents: Seth and Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show," according to The Los Angeles Times. Microsoft recently backed out, reportedly due to concerns over jokes about deaf people and the Holocaust.

Katie Holmes has replaced Liv Tyler in upcoming independent film, "The Romantics," Variety reports. Not only that, she has also been made an executive producer of the movie, which revolves around several college friends who reunite for a wedding.
