Enter-the-Fray_l Though I missed the actual Tony Awards broadcast, I was able to catch up on the evening's highlights by reading Thom Geier's thorough liveblog of the event. And, of course, by reading this account of what was clearly the most buzzworthy part of Sunday's show: Bret Michaels' spectacular scenery collision. (I only allowed myself to watch – and laugh – once I knew he'd be alright.) Here's what else you talked about this week:

9. Earlier this week, rumors swirled that TBS might continue producing new episodes My Name is Earl. Sadly, we learned yesterday that the comedy's actually gone for good.

8. Mike Bruno admired Megan Fox's little black dress at the Transformers Seoul premiere.

7. Kate Ward took her mom to see the not-so-parent-friendly Hangover. Hilarity ensued.

6. Recently fired Miss California USA Carrie Prejean's leaked emails: diva alert!

5. Contessa Brewer and John Ziegler threw down re: the Palin/Letterman spat.

4. Chris Harrison promised a personal hard copy of his Bachelorette blog if the comments section went haywire again. Luckily for our planet's trees, the comments seem to be working fine.

2. Does Land of the Lost's dismal box office take mean America is over Will Ferrell?

1. Chris Nashawaty got sucked into the bad-movie vortex last weekend when he found himself watching Jessica Alba's ''deep-sea treasure turd'' Into the Blue instead of his Netflixed Ingmar Bergman film, a phenomenon we're all quite familiar with.
