  • In TV News...

  • Jersey Shore's 4th season will reportedly shoot in Italy. I cannot wait to see a fight break out between real Italians and the Shore's faux guidettes! [TVLine]
  • Last night on the Report, Stephen Colbert revealed he is is Banksy. [Comedy Central Insider]
  • Father Alberto Cutie (the priest who left the Catholic Church after a scandal in which he was caught with a woman) is getting his own self-help talk show. [The Hollywood Reporter]
  • Hey now! Kelsey Grammer has formed a reality TV production company that will focus on—guess what—unscripted programming. What are the odds Camille will stick around with the Housewives now? [Inside TV]
  • The CW has come up with a really clever show that will give regular people the chance to confront their most-hated celebrities. The only thing I can't get behind on this project? The terrible title, H8R. [Inside TV]
  • Jim Carrey is catching some flack from Hindu and Jewish communities for a sketch he did while hosting Saturday Night Live. The sketch in question was Grady Wilson's Tantric N' Tasty," where he played a sex expert alongside Kenan Thompson. [NY Daily News]
  • MTV will make a British version of Jersey Shore, but because the Brits are much classier than Americans, they don't have an equivalent of New Jersey. Instead, they'll target the Geordies, up in the northeast shore around New Castle. Here's hoping they go for the title of Geordie Shore. [Warming Glow]
  • Oprah's episode that aired yesterday—you know, the one about her big SECRET—gave her the highest ratings she's had in six years. [THR]
  • The CW's got a controversial ad running in Times Square for Vampire Diaries that simply reads "Catch VD." [Inside TV]
  • Anne Hathaway and James Franco's Oscar promos are out and man, are they cheesy. Check them out for yourself. [Just Jared]

  • Speaking of the Oscars, here's the list of all the nominations. Now, who are you excited for and who got snubbed? [Gawker]
  • Why not take a little time to brush up on the Oscar-nominated animated shorts this year? [Pop Candy]
  • Someone made a smart .gif that show's the eye-line of every man around Kim Kardashian's ass at a basketball game. You can probably guess the rest. [The Score]
  • Is this the most depressing book shelf ever? [The Daily What]
  • Can you imagine Robert Pattinson playing Jeff Buckley in a biopic? Perhaps you should get ready for that to become a reality. [NME]
  • If you've got a medical marijuana card and live in California, you might as well try this new weed-infused soda pop! [Yum Sugar]
  • It appears that Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken joint has opened and drawing big crowds! [TMZ]
  • Harvard named Jay Leno their "Hasty Pudding Man of the Year." Team CoCo, you should be upset by this. [E! Online]
