It’s the end of an era at MTV. They’ll no longer play music videos. Well, TRL has been canceled so that’s what that means right? On a still-to-be-determined Saturday afternoon in November, MTV will air the final Total Request Live, a show that launched everyone’s favorite way-too-tan late night host Carson Daly and helped to take over the streets of Times Square every weekday afternoon. Here's the actual footage of how MTV launched back in 1981:

Ugly Betty was in New York City for its premiere (yes, TV shows have premieres) and the paparrazi were out in full force snapping pics of America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams and, of course, Lindsay Lohan who returns for a guest role. The cast had nothing but good things to say about Lindsay and say her supposed girlfriend, Samantha, keeps her grounded. Ugly Betty is back on ABC on the 25th. Speaking of new TV, House is back tonight on Fox at 7 p.m.

What did the openly-gay Lance Bass think of all those rumors that he might be partnered with a male partner on Dancing With the Stars? He tells me “I think it would be so silly that it would just overshadow everything else going on. It would just be like making fun of something.” Lance will make his Dancing With the Stars debut next week.

Before STAR Artist Taylor Swift’s new album "Fearless" hits stores, it’ll hit iTunes. You can actually get a new song on their now and then throughout the month more songs will pop up. On November 11th you can just click “Complete My Album” and download the rest of the tracks.

I wonder what Billy Ray has to say about this. Seems 15 year-old Miley Cyrus is dating a 20 year-old underwear model. They were spotted over the weekend going to church together and then yesterday they went to the mall “holding hands the whole time.”

Actress Christina Applegate went back to work on Samantha Who yesterday for the first time since surgery to battle breast cancer. She’s now 100% cancer-free.

STAR Artist Jesse McCartney is coming to ShopKo Hall part of the Okobos Music Festival and he’s also making his way to the small screen. He’ll be on an episode of Law & Order: SVU as a murder suspect.

Amy Pohler will leave Saturday Night Live. UPDATE: NBC has announced that Amy won't be back after she leaves for maternity leave in a few weeks.

STAR Artist Lifehouse has hired Kiefer Sutherland to direct the video for their new hit “Broken.”

Thursday night STAR Artist Natasha Bedingfield will sing on the America’s Got Talent results show.
