Jon Stewart announces rallies to be broadcast live

Can’t quite find the time to make it to the Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert rallies in our nation's capitol?

Well, don't go feeling all unpatriotic about it. Stewart announced on his show Tuesday night that both his "Rally to Restore Sanity" and Colbert’s "March to Keep Fear Alive" will be broadcast live by Comedy Central.

The network will also live stream the events which are scheduled to occur on October 30. Entertainment Weekly reports that while  specifics for the coverage are still being worked out, the rally and march are scheduled to run from noon to 3 p.m.

The Comedy Central website reiterated the rules Stewart laid out for the rallies on Tuesday night: "No nudity. No throwing stuff. No fascism. All of which, Jon says, boil down to the very basic 'when in doubt, don't be douchey.'"

Avril Lavigne: I'm a little old-fashioned

When it comes to bringing the sexy, there are two things a woman needs, according to Avril Lavigne: "Attitude and confidence," as she told Maxim magazine for their November issue.

The 26-year-old singer is gracing Maxim's cover for a third time, and a lot has changed since she first posed for the publication when she was just 19.

“I’m older and more comfortable with my femininity. The first time I was about 19 and was very nervous. I was more of a tomboy, I guess,” Lavigne said.

Perez Hilton says he's making a change

In a YouTube video titled “I’m Going To Be Doing Things Differently,” celebrity blogger Perez Hilton addresses his actions over the last few years on PerezHilton.com and apologizes for bullying celebrities.

He posted a link to his video in a series of nine Twitter posts, leading with phrases like “#LoveIsLouder Than hate!” and “I can’t keep justifying my behavior!”

With the recent rash of teen suicides and bullying appearing in the media, Hilton says he has decided that he wants to “be the solution and not part of the problem.” While speaking out against bullying over the last few weeks, many people have called Hilton a hypocrite, saying that he’s a bully himself.

YouTube star shines at BET Hip Hop Awards

Awards shows are all about the performances and the BET Hip Hop Awards 2010 was no different.

Despite appearances by rap stars like Rick Ross, Gucci Mane and Wacka Flocka Flame, one of the most buzzed about performances was by a YouTube star.

Antoine Dodson took to the stage to perform just a bit of his hit “Bedroom Intruder” song, with its infectious “Hide your wife, hide your kids” refrain. Dodson performed with Michael Gregory on keyboard. Gregory is the impressario who took Dodson’s appearance on an Alabama newscast explaining how he saved his sister from an alleged rapist and transformed into an auto-tuned ditty.

Who's crazier on 'Raising Hope'?

Who's crazier on 'Raising Hope'?

One of the few success stories of the fall season is Fox's comedy "Raising Hope," which became the first new series to receive a full season order last week. Enough of the "Glee" audience is sticking around to watch it (perhaps partially due to the clever opening sequence?), so it's staying around for the long run.

Four episodes in, the similarities to creator Greg Garcia's "My Name is Earl" are unmistakable, but this show has more heart to it. In fact, it's the most heartwarming story about a guy who must take care of his baby after her mother is sentenced to death and executed.

"Raising Hope" is also a much better name than "Raising Princess Beyonce."

Robert De Niro to produce CBS cop drama

He's played a lot of shady characters, but now Robert De Niro is joining forces with the right side of the law by producing a cop drama for CBS.

The 67-year-old Oscar-winning actor and crime writer Richard Price ("The Color of Money," HBO's "The Wire") have sealed a deal with the network for "Rookies," a gritty series about six newbie cops who are sent into high-crime areas, according to the Hollywood Reporter. De Niro and Price previously teamed up on the 1993 film "Mad Dog and Glory."

"Rookies" will be produced by De Niro's Tribeca Prods., and besides being part of the company's two-year-old overall deal with CBS TV studios, the project could also add another crime series to the CBS lineup.

Both "Criminal Minds" and "The Mentalist" currently air on the network, though "Rookies" is expected to be edgier because of Price's street-savvy writing style.
