Hilary Duff is a mean girl on 'Community'

"Community" knows its fan base very well, and this season, they've given the fans what they want: More Abed. Thursday night's episode was no exception.

Hilary Duff guest-starred as one of several "mean girls" at Greendale Community College, constantly tormenting Britta, Shirley and Annie... until they learned that the too-observant Abed has a gift for insults.

Abed finds his inner mean girl, or at least a mean girl version of Robocop. The insults flew so fast, it was virtually impossible to catch all of them without rewinding your DVR. Duff's character facing off with Abed was a wonder to behold.

Will Ferrell tops Forbes list of overpaid actors

Will Ferrell may bring on big laughs, but big box office? Not so much.

For the second year in the row, the comic has landed himself at the top of Forbes's Overpaid Actors List.

To come up with its Top 10 – which counts movies made prior to June 2010 - Forbes looked at the three most recent films of the actors on its Celebrity 100 list. It then calculated the money raked in from the theatrical, DVD, and TV releases of those films, factored in production budgets, and compared the final figure to the star's salary.

Conan: Leno won't be a guest on new show

Seth Rogen, Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford are just a few of the stars who will appear on Conan O'Brien's new late-night talk show over the next two weeks. One name that won't be landing on the list anytime soon? Jay Leno.

"He can come as the musical guest, because that I want to see," O'Brien remarks in a candid new interview in Playboy's December issue before adding, "No, there are certain things I will not do, regardless of the price.”

And while the "Conan" show will tape not far from the "Tonight Show," O'Brien doesn't anticipate that he and Leno will ever cross paths. "We hang out in different circles, so I don’t think we’ll be bumping into each other," he explains.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Are LeAnn and Eddie engaged?

Hey, it’s A.J.! My head is spinning with celebrity couple news today. I've heard that LeAnn and Eddie may be getting married, but I've barely wrapped my head around the fact that they split up their previous marriages for each other. Has it all been too much, too soon?

Another star couple getting hitched: Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo. The pair just revealed their engagement news Thursday - but I’m wondering if Nick’s ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, is devastated!

In other news, Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal aren’t getting married – we’re not sure if they're even dating - but I can tell you that "Showbiz Tonight" talks to Jake to set the record straight about all of the romance rumors!

'Supernanny' quits to find 'more balance'

Forget taking care of other people's kids – "Supernanny" Jo Frost just wants some to call her own. And that's exactly why the British disciplinarian is ending her popular ABC series after six seasons.

"I have decided to hang up my cape," 39-year-old Frost tells the New York Post. "It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection. But I need to create more balance in my life."

That includes buying a home, finding love and having children.

Writers for Spielberg's new sci-fi series laid off

Having a boss who is one of the wealthiest men in Hollywood doesn’t necessarily translate to job security.

The Los Angles Times reports that most of the writing staff for Steven Spielberg’s new Fox sci-fi show “Terra Nova” has been let go. Those who received the ax include former "X-Files" writer Chris Brancato.

The series – which is being produced by a group including Spielberg and former News Corp. head Peter Chernin – is described as “a time-travel epic that toggles between the 22nd century and prehistoric times” with a pilot episode that reportedly cost nearly $20 million.
