Ox Notes: January 9, 2008

The People’s Choice Awards aired last night, because, as host Queen Latifah said, "you can’t disrespect the people who keep us working, and that’s the people."

Lisa Rinna and Joey Fatone have been given Sunday night off, as the Golden Globes won’t have any celebrity red carpet entrances for them to cover on behalf of the TV Guide Network.

Lisa’s former Dancing with the Stars partner, Louis van Amstel, has his hands full at the moment as choreographer of the DwtS Tour, although he did manage to find time for an interview with TV Guide.

Fellow DwtS pro Julianne Hough is currently recording a country music album, which is scheduled for release in late spring or early summer.

And DwtS judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli spoke with People about Dance War, as well as the trouble Bruno had learning how to use his iPod.

The A.V. Club has a lengthy interview with Anthony Bourdain, and TV Guide features a spoiler-laden interview with Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick, ahead of tonight’s GG season finale.

And, just like the good old days, NBC will rerun episodes of American Gladiators during the afternoon on weekends. Now if they could just cast fellow weekend-day TV denizen Kevin Sorbo on Gladiators, the circle would be complete.
