The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, inspiring thousands of sold-out screenings and countless desperate hunts for seats, grossed a record $18.5 million at midnight screenings, studio estimates said today. A box-office analyst told me, "That's just a portion of the day. I think this could break a lot of records."

Jay Leno is definitely done with NBC next year, but isn’t retiring. They’ll replace him with Conan O'Brien even though Jay showed no signs of wanting to leave. His departure will set off a bidding frenzy for him at ABC, Fox and several cable channels.

The rumors continue to build - I’ve got confirmation from several sources that Jennifer Garner is expecting another baby with Ben Affleck. One even told us she’s five months along.

STAR Artist Gwen Stefani is going to click her heels together three times -- in the name of fashion. Gwen is one of 19 designers who've been selected to re-interpret Dorothy's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, in honor of the movie's 70th anniversary next year. The idea is to answer the question, "If Dorothy were living in the 21st Century, what would she wear?"

Denny lives! Or, okay, probably not, but the ABC rep for Grey’s Anatomy just confirmed to me that Jeffrey Dean Morgan, known affectionately ‘round here as Dr. Sexy Pants, will return to Seattle Grace in the coming season. When? How? Why?

The woman who reportedly claimed STAR Artist John Mayer hit on her recently says it's not true. In an interview with UsMagazine.com, Chaton Anderson said last month's story in In Touch magazine that suggested Mayer was hitting on her while dating Jennifer Aniston, "Is completely not true."

Well duh - STAR Artist Barenaked Ladies singer Steve Page has pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance, according to published reports.
