The Bullseye

We rate pop culture for the week of January 19, 2009 including the inauguration, ''Bromance,'' and Patti LuPone

HITS
· History is made as the nation inaugurates its first black president...and the first bedazzled bow sings ''America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee)''
· Check out Patti LuPone's onstage hissy fit on YouTube (''Stop taking pictures! Right! Now!'')— and her upcoming role on 30 Rock
The not-so-subtle homoeroticism of Bromance

NEAR MISSES
· After watching her spill the beans on Oprah, we'd like to hang with Jill Biden over cocktails

MISSES
· If you seek Amy, can you have her call and explain the song?
· rosie's blog is gone
choo choo choo the crazy train
has left the station
· Mira Sorvino: If it's a choice between The Last Templar and quitting acting, might we suggest a sequel to Romy and Michele?

MOT EVEN CLOSE
· The stomach-turning staple-gun scene in The Wrestler.
· With guest spots by Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson, CSI: NY is the new TRL. Note to producers of CSI: NY: No one misses the old TRL.
