Ox Notes: January 5, 2010

Let’s start the new year with some Dancing with the Stars 10 rumors. Pure DwtS has a roundup of all of the celebrities associated with the upcoming season, however tenuously. I’m most excited by the prospect of Jonathan Frakes — best known as Commander Will Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation — joining the cast.

Donald Trump bashed the quality of past DwtS casts while promoting the cast of the new season of Celebrity Apprentice, which includes two folks who had shows on VH1 and Rod Blagojevich.

CBS is debuting the first few minutes of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains during Wednesday night’s broadcast of the People’s Choice Awards.

I’m going to have to watch the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 23 to see Sandra Bullock present a Life Achievement Award to Betty White.

Zap2It has a photo gallery of January premiere and return dates. The Watcher’s winter TV preview is in a more readable list format.

As a promo for the final season of Lost, the cast posed for a cool photo that recreates da Vinci’s "Last Supper." I’m a fan of this, as proven by the poster of the Battlestar Galactica version of "The Last Supper" hanging on the wall behind my desk.

Chef Ina Garten turned down Jennifer Garner’s request to appear on Barefoot Contessa because the actress isn’t a "real friend." Don’t worry, Jen. I’m sure Giada would let you appear on Everyday Italian.

Some celebrities make as much at $10,000 per Tweet for mentioning products in their Twitter feeds. Wait, you can make money on Twitter?! Good thing I just started posting at @kathyfgibson. Now all I have to do is become a celebrity.
