Dalton Ross's Hit List for the week of Jan. 28, 2005

The 10 hottest topics of the week

1

E! PLANS DAILY REENACTMENTS OF MICHAEL JACKSON TRIAL E! president Ted Harbert insisted the coverage will be ”deadly serious,” before presumably adding, ”But, you know, we are E! I mean…well, you know what I mean.”

2

JENNIFER GARNER’S ELEKTRA BUSTIER GOES ON SALE ON EBAY It was a full-on bidding war! Although I suppose that’s what happens when you have users named MVartan and SFoley.

3

VENDING MACHINE INDUSTRY LAUNCHES ANTI-OBESITY CAMPAIGN Isn’t this sorta like ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY starting a ”magazines suck” campaign? (They don’t, by the way.)

4

GWEN STEFANI’S DRESS STOLEN The good news is, she wasn’t wearing it at the time. Okay, not such good news if you’re a 15-year-old boy or fan of films like Zapped!, but otherwise pretty lucky.

5

FOX TO SELL UNAIRED EPISODES OF CANCELED REALITY SHOW PLAYING IT STRAIGHT ONLINE If you didn’t want to see it for free, you’ll definitely want to pay $9.99 to watch it all on a computer screen. No-brainer.

6

RICHARD HATCH TO PLEAD GUILTY TO FAILING TO REPORT HIS $1 MILLION SURVIVOR WINNINGS Oh, well, so much for his whole smartest person to ever play the game thing. He still has his nudity, at least.

7

KATHY GRIFFIN TAKES NO PRISONERS AT GOLDEN GLOBES Almost makes us forgive her for Celebrity Mole. Almost.

8

NYC POLICE SERGEANT SAYS DRUG DEALERS COPYING TACTICS SEEN ON THE WIRE Hey, at least they have good taste. It’s not like you’ll catch these guys ponying up $9.99 to check out lost episodes of Playing It Straight or anything.

9

MINNESOTA HITS MINUS 54 DEGREES Where’s freakin’ Jake Gyllenhaal? It’s The Day After the Day After Tomorrow!

10

APPRENTICE 3 BEGINS My ”street smarts” tell me to skip it.
