Not a winner in the Michael Jackson memorial lottery? Not a problem. You can still get a front row viewing while sparing yourself the cost of a flight.

Although 17,500 get the chance to be in either the Staples Center or the Nokia Theater, free television coverage will allow everyone an opportunity to witness the events as they unfold.

According to a release from the Jackson family, participants at Tuesday’s memorial include Kobe Bryant, , Berry Gordy, Jennifer Hudson, Shaheen Jafargholi (finalist on Britain’s Got Talent), Magic Johnson, Martin Luther King III, Bernice A.

Kiefer Sutherland

The ladies might have stolen the Met Costume Institute Gala’s spotlight, but it was who made fashion world news last night.

The 24 star was at an after-party for the annual event when he allegedly saw Jack McCollough, a Proenza Schouler designer, knock over Brooke Shields. Although the actress later denied that anything “inappropriate” happened to her, a confrontation between Jack and Kiefer eventually led to a Sutherland head-butt.

Even though the previous television season was marred by the annoying writers’ strike, I find myself really excited for the . Not only will this ceremony give us a chance to start anew, it’ll be the academy’s chance to celebrate what’s new.

Tonight, two basic cable shows (Damages, Mad Men) will get a chance to win for Outstanding Drama Series. (That would be an Emmy first.) Meanwhile, nominees in several categories will have an opportunity to compete in a Sopranos-less environment. An added bonus? A new category. This year, reality show hosts will finally be acknowledged for their programming contributions as well.

So who won? Who lost? Who ran up and grabbed the award even though they didn’t win? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

‘Lipstick Jungle’ Premiere

Lipstick Jungle

Remember those perfume ads back in the 1980’s for Parfums decoeur ‘Designer Imposters’? They went something like “if you like Giorgio you’ll love Primo!, if you like Opium you’ll love Ninja” or the more recent enticement, “If you like Juicy Couture you’ll love Yeah Baby.”  It’s human to want a whiff of luxury at a bargain price - too bad the end result usually stinks.

NBC’s reminds me of those ‘Designer Imposters’. The show, starring Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price,  premiered last night.

If you’re confused and could have sworn Lipstick Jungle stars Lucy Liu and two other chicks, you’re only half wrong.  That show is on ABC and is called .

Lipstick Jungle has the right pedigree. It’s based on a novel by Sex and the City author and its parallels to that hit HBO series are unmistakable until you scratch the surface.

Lipstick’s plot centers around three powerful Manhattan women who tread in dangerous waters of sex, lies and betrayal. At least, I think that’s what the plot is supposed to be. What I saw seemed more like a Lifetime movie for women than a glossy Primetime sex drama.
