While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Even in the afterlife, Michael Jackson is still making more money than you: The late King of Pop earned $170 million in revenue for the past year. [Forbes]
  • Wahlburgers, Mark Wahlberg's aptly named burger joint that he's running with his brothers in Hingham, Massachusetts, is now open for business. Toppings include a special "wahl sauce" as well as "government cheese" (American, of course.) Check out their menu at the link. [Wahlburgers.com]
  • Obviously fast food chains weren't going to turn "The Feel Bad Movie" of the holiday season into kids' meal toys - although we're not afraid to admit we'd purchase, if so - and instead H&M has hopped on the merchandising train. The retailer will sell a clothing collection inspired by David Fincher's adaptation of Stieg Larsson's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." [NYPost]
  • Have you been enjoying Claire Danes' Showtime gig, "Homeland"? Yeah? Then good news: The series has been picked up for a second season. This makes "Homeland" writer/producer Alex Cary's week doubly great because... [LAT]
  • He's also writing and executive producing a reboot of '80s series "Wiseguy," which will land over at NBC. [Deadline]
  • While we await the Steve Jobs movie to hit the big screen, PBS is bringing a Steve Jobs documentary to the small screen on November 2. Mark your iPhone calendars! [EW]

    Hey Missy ~ I love Dexter! This season is so interesting! Now that he has prayed to God, dropped his slides, and was figured out by the Tooth Fairy Killer how is this going to figure into the story line? Is he losing his focus? Is his praying going to totally going to affect his entire capability to kill? It is definately an interesting roller coaster ride this season! I can"t want for the next episode! As to Homeland sometimes they will show old episodes in order on the weekends so you can catch up. You can definately catch up if you have On Demand! Hope you enjoy both!

    Homeland is a terrific show. The plot is so intriguing and Brody is one who just don't know what he is going to do next. Carrie (Claire Danes) is just so he!! bent on nailing him that it has become an obsession. Mandy Patikin's character tries to keep Carrie on task but it doesn't always work especially in her freetime! I am very interested to see where next weeks episode takes us as Brody meets one of his captors face to face.
