Hayden Panettiere: Japan’s Most Wanted

Posted by David Onda Categories: Heroes, Gossip, News,

Save the cheerleader ... Save the whalesShe saved the whales. But who will save the cheerleader? Heroes star told E! News on Thursday that she’s in hot water with Japanese officials after she hung ten with a group of animal activists last month. Panettiere joined the activist group in disrupting a Japanese whale hunt -  and now they’re pissed. “I learned today that I have an arrest warrant out for me in Japan because of what I did for Save the Whales,” Panettiere told E! News. The world is now a safer place for humpbacks, but apparently not so much for cute blonde TV stars.

This Week on TV (11/12-11/18)

Project Runway


MONDAY (11/12)

NBC ‘Green Week’: An Opinion

NBC's 'Green Week' sucks a big oneOk, I’m all for saving the world, cleaning up the air and preventing whatever horrible fate Al Gore has decided awaits us in the coming decades - but this NBC “Green Week” is absolutely awful. In a week that has seen this huge writer strike, it would seem to me that network television needs every spark it can possibly get. What did NBC deliver instead? The guy from Windtalkers (now on Law & Order: SVU) telling me to recycle a pizza box … before he almost gets blown up by the bomb inside.

Oh, but the tree-hugging horror doesn’t stop there. Follow me after the jump to take a look at some of the other cringe-inducing moments from “Green Week.”

Monday Ratings: Osmond Went Down, ‘Dancing’ Went Up

Thanks to a baseball-less Monday on FOX (and a startling collapse on Dancing With the Stars), ABC easily took last night’s win.

This Week On TV (10/22-10/28)



MONDAY (10/22)

**No new episode of Ellen today.  She’s still recovering from all the doggy drama**

  • Live With Regis and Kelly (ABC, syndicated):  will be pulling double-duty this week as he fills in for Regis Philbin in NY and tapes his show in LA.  (I’m guessing we’ll still be seeing him on as well.)  If we’re lucky, Guillermo will fill in for Gelman too.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  The show returns tonight after being preempted by baseball last week.  What?  You don’t care either?
  • Heroes (NBC, 9pm):  Many fans have been waiting for Kristen Bell’s debut tonight.  Unfortunately, she’s one more new character I’ll have to ignore.

Monday Ratings:  ABC Dances Away With Another Win

It’s unclear how some of these programs would have fared without stiff competition from Monday Night Football and the Yankees/Indians game.  Regardless, it’s not surprising that to report that ABC easily danced away with another ratings victory (followed by CBS, NBC, FOX and CW).
