Your pop culture cheat sheet

Will Ferrell is Hollywood's most "overpaid" star, according to Forbes, in a study they posted Wednesday. His recent box-office flop, "Land of the Lost," had a lot to do with that. The Web site says that Ewan McGregor came in second.

Perennial "guest star" Heather Locklear did wonders for "Melrose Place's" ratings in the '90s, but how did she fare with her appearance on the new version? Not too well, says The Hollywood Reporter. Ratings were only up 14 percent from the series low the week before.

Reality cooking shows are starting to become as hot as dancing shows. NBC has ordered a new series called "United Plates of America," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The winner of the competition will launch a chain of restaurants - not a bad prize.

Jennifer Morrison spoke to about her apparent exit from "House" on Monday. As for a possible return in the future, she said that she was being paid for the rest of the season and didn't know anything else beyond that. Her character, Cameron, who has been with the show since the beginning, left her husband and the hospital in the most recent episode.

    Will Ferrell being paid anything over the minimum wage is being overpaid. He is not funny, can't act. I would say he would be more suited asking "do you want fries with that?" but I don't want to insult all those people working so hard in the food industry.

    As much as I love Will Ferrell – I have to say a lot of his more recent stuff sucks. Total bummer. I didn't really like him in Land of the Lost. I thought it was kinda stupid. I -hated- Semi Pro. That was like the worst movie ever.
