While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • CBS has finally cut its losses with "Partners" and has canceled the freshman half-hour sitcom. Re-runs of other comedy shows will start on Monday. [THR]
  • We're starting to wonder about the orchestration behind this Bieber/Gomez breakup - every day, there seems to be a new text or tweet or photo that keeps the "are they, or aren't they?" guessing game going a while longer. Most recently, it was a reported all-day meet-up at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Super-pop-culture sleuths: do either of these young'uns have something to promote? Maybe we should ask Allison Williams about this. [Perez]
  • Speaking of suspicious press, Katy Perry and John Mayer's photo tour of love is throwing us off a bit. Isn't the point of this celebrity game to pretend like you don't want your picture taken, while still allowing a slim opportunity for the paparazzi to do so? Maybe these two didn't get the memo. [Us Weekly]
  • Oh, Matthew McConaughey, we've so been there bro. Ever dieted yourself into a cheeseburger fantasy? That's what a once-buff McConaughey, who's dropped 38 pounds for a new role, gets caught up in describing at the link. [HitFix]
  • Rihanna and People magazine seem to agree: If there were ever a contest between Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum, Channing FTW.

Lindsay Lohan: Keep me on set, it's safer that way

Lindsay Lohan worked hard to get the part of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's TV movie "Liz & Dick," and she's hoping that it'll pay off when it premieres on the network November 25.

She told "Good Morning America" Friday that she got the part by "harassing [producer] Larry Thompson."

"I had seen that they were going to be making the movie, and I got the producer's number," she said. "I didn't even care if my agents were going to do it or not, I just did it myself too."

'Girls' star Allison Williams, how do you do it?

Allison Williams' character on "Girls" comes across as a little elitist, but the actress herself is an admitted pop culture junkie from the low to the high.

“The shorter question is what am I not obsessed with pop culturally! There’s nothing I can’t talk about," Williams told CNN Thursday as she arrived at the 50th anniversary gala for PBS' flagship station, Thirteen.
