While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • This time it seems Alyson Hannigan really is pregnant (and not just bloated). Although she said earlier this year that her belly was filled with food, not a baby, the actress and her husband are now expecting their second child. [GossipCop]
  • One 105-minute doc on Justin Bieber just isn't enough, apparently. TLC has secured the U.S. rights to a Brit special that sounds similar to "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," as it goes "behind-the-scenes" with the young star. The hour-long program will air December 21. [EW]
  • An extended preview of "30 Rock" has arrived, featuring James Marsden as Liz Lemon's boyfriend "Chriss" (yup, with an extra "s") and Kristen Schaal as "Hazel Whatshername." The NBC comedy returns January 12 at 8 p.m. ET. [Jezebel]
  • Former "X Factor" contestant Marcus Canty isn't going to win the recording contract, but the singer hasn't let being eliminated dash his spirits. His next stop, he hopes, is a sitcom. [E!]
  • And now, for Rob Lowe as Drew Peterson in Lifetime's "Untouchable":

Well, the days of Cross defending "Chipmunks" are long gone.

David Cross isn't the only one: Nine other stars who talked trash about their own films

In an interview with Indiewire, Cross said that his experience on "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" was "literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I’ve ever had in my professional life."
