Was the debate perfect 'SNL' fodder?

Don't you just love a good debate?

When the aspiring Republican presidential candidates went head-to-head at CNN's debate on Tuesday night, we were probably thinking just what you were thinking: How is "Saturday Night Live" going to spoof this one?

Seriously, weren't there a few moment there when you could just envision the cast of "SNL" taking the action on with their special brand of humor?

Obama not thrilled when kids watch Kardashians

The Kardashians seem to be everywhere, but don't expect to spot them often on the White House TVs. First Lady Michelle Obama admits in an interview with iVillage that her husband isn't too pleased when the couple's daughters try to turn on E!'s first family.

As is the case with many parents, the First Lady and President Obama have TV viewing limits for daughters Sasha and Malia - no Web or channel surfing during the week, unless it's related to homework. That rule is let up a little bit on the weekends, when they're allowed to tune in to the tube.

While Mrs. Obama doesn't specify if there are any shows strictly off-limits, she does say that "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians - when they watch that stuff - he doesn't like that as much."

Which celebrity bid adieu on 'DWTS'?

Time finally ran out for Carson Kressley on last night's "Dancing With the Stars" results show.

The fashion guru, whose wild, personality-driven routines entertained fans but annoyed the show's judges for lack of technique, was the latest celebrity eliminated from the popular ABC series.

Kressley, who scored the lowest following Monday's routines, told CNN after the show that he was somewhat surprised by his departure.

What writing stress did to Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks' recently released young adult novel “Modelland” was five years in the making, and Ty Ty says it was a stressful endeavor. So much so that it sounds like the multitasking star's hair took a hit.

“How can I say this without tearing up?” the model-turned-mogul told The Wall Street Journal. “I got a little alopecia from the stress.”

The process may have been difficult, but the 37-year-old "America's Next Top Model" host said coming up with the idea was easy. “I was riding in the back of a car on the FDR and the idea just popped in my head,” recalled Tyra, who noted, “I've always felt very connected to teens.”

"Modelland" has been shooting up the best-seller list since its release last month. The story is set in a dystopian fantasy world and follows teen outcast Tookie de la Crème.

'X Factor': And then there were 17

I'm sure they get paid plenty, but I wouldn't want to trade places with an "X Factor" judge.

On Tuesday, Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Nicole Scherzinger slashed the list of competitors from 32 to 17, which was far from easy. All of the singers in the list of 32 were really solid...and I mean REALLY solid.

Last week, the four judges listened to their individual eight acts perform at their homes. This week, they met with all 32 contestants to tell them whether they would proceed to the live shows or if it was the end of the road for them. Let's recap!

50 Cent will donate meals for 'likes'

Call it a philanthropic promotion, where a "like" equals a meal.

Rapper 50 Cent, a.k.a Curtis Jackson, has promised to provide a meal to a child in need every time his new Street King energy shots receive a "like" on Facebook through Sunday.

He's teaming up with the United Nations World Food Programme, and if he gets a million likes by Sunday, he'll donate an additional one million meals.
