So how is 'Conan' doing in the ratings?

It has been a good first week so far for “Conan.”

According to TBS, Conan O’Brien’s new late-night talk show averaged 1.5 million adults in the 18-34 demographic and nearly 2.2 million adults between the ages of 18 and 49 for the week. Overall, the average for the week was 2.9 million viewers.

Those numbers helped the debut week of “Conan” to attract an audience with a projected median age of just 32 for the week, the network said.

Miranda and Blake: Country's new golden couple?

Move over, Tim and Faith. There's a new golden couple in town, and their names are Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

On her 27th birthday, Lambert picked up three trophies at "The 44th Annual CMA Awards," while her fiance walked away with two. They're also the first real-life couple to be crowned female and male vocalist of the year since Faith Hill and Tim McGraw in 2000.

"I'm so excited for Blake. I can't even be excited for myself, and I mean that," Lambert gushed to CNN after the show, her blue eyes misting over. "He is an amazing singer. I hear him on records, I hear him in the shower. I hear him all the time and I know how great he is. It's about time people noticed."

Which actresses will be cast in 'Dark Knight Rises'?

It looks like Batman will be fending off quite a few women in the "The Dark Knight Rises," the third installment of the franchise about the Caped Crusader.

Deadline.com reports that director Christopher Nolan is planning to cast two females in the next of the Batman flicks. Though details are being kept under wraps, one woman will likely be the love interest of the superhero's alter ego Bruce Wayne, and the other, a villain. Hmm… Catwoman, perhaps?

Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal played Wayne's loves in each of the previous Batman films, respectively.

Poll: Which movie are you seeing this weekend?

There are a few options bowing in theaters the week before cinemas everywhere are taken over by a flood of "Harry Potter" fans, and they range from the Denzel Washington and Chris Pine action-movie-with-trains,  "Unstoppable," to the Rachel McAdams go-getter rom-com "Morning Glory."

So far, it looks like "Unstoppable," which also stars Rosario Dawson, is pulling ahead with critics. The movie tells the story of two train operators who have to stop a runaway locomotive filled with explosives, and Roger Ebert found the film to be, "in terms of sheer craftsmanship...a superb film." Scott Bowles at USA Today was a bit more measured, noting right off the bat that while "'Unstoppable' doesn't quite live up to its name...it clicks along briskly enough to keep you on board for an hour and a half."

"Morning Glory," meanwhile, is getting the critical equivalent of "meh."

Michael Lohan is back to commenting on Lindsay

Well, that didn't last very long.

Remember how back on October 20 Lindsay Lohan's daddy (say that in your best NeNe Leakes voice please), Michael Lohan, released a statement saying he was no longer going to be releasing statements?

"After serious thought and conversation last night, with someone who means alot [sic]to me. I am making this statement and fully intend on living by it," Michael Lohan said in a statement to CNN. "I want to make a public statement that I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay, or ANYTHING my ex wife Dina, or any 'sources' related to her, might say."

Ahem....that was then.

On Thursday, Lohan once again spoke with CNN, this time about seeing his daughter who has been spending time in rehab. Seems Lindsay is doing great and her father wanted to let the world know how proud he is of her progress. He added that he hopes that he and Lindsay's mother, his ex-wife Dina Lohan, can get on the "same page" regarding family therapy.

Watching 'Glee' on 'The Office'

Watching 'Glee' on 'The Office'

According to Dwight Schrute, "Glee" is a ridiculous premise for a show. "Thirst - now there's a show I'd watch."

Dwight was invited, along with the rest of the employees of Dunder Mifflin, to a "Glee" viewing party at Gabe's house on Thursday night's episode of "The Office." Since Gabe is new, tall and awkward, his girlfriend Erin hoped that this would help him be more liked around the office. Whenever the show goes into someone's home, it's usually always a winner, and the cast's varying reactions to "Glee" were an added bonus.

Gabe, Erin and Kevin certainly count as the Gleeks of the office, while Kelly, who thinks the show is ridiculous, can't stop talking about it: "What was with Jesse's sudden turn on Rachel between 'Dream On' and 'Funk'? Honestly, that show - it's irresponsible."
