Is any part of Borat not scripted?

Oddly timed, but I was reading the latest issue of Maxim (US version) last night and the "interview" with Borat there was pretty much identical, both in questions and answers as Borat's "interview" on the Today Show this morning.

The Ali G show tended to get a bit long in the tooth, is this going to carry over into the movie where we've seen all of the potentially humorous scenes in the previews?

Federline album to sell at least 12 copies

Britney is looking to help out her man (or at least reduce the amount she's shelling out to keep him busy) by holding a contest amongst her fans to see who can sell the most K-Fed albums. 1st place gets to party with them at the Haloween release party. 2nd gets a pair of smelly kicks that K-Fed loused up at some awards show. Ten runners up will get a replica of the medallion/tracking device that the Fedster wears all the time.

Can't wait to see the poor dads of these kids trying to sell these babies that the kids overbought at the office like the yearly girl scout cookies.

Cory Lidle death Blamed on A-Rod

Reports are flying out of New York that Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle's death was the fault of Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod). Apparently if he'd managed to get more than one hit during the first round of playoffs and maybe hit in a run, the Yankees would still be in the playoffs and he wouldn't have been flying.

Laugh Tracks on SNL

Is Saturday Night Live using laugh tracks this season (possibly more than previous seasons)?

During an amazing number of unfunny bits on this past Saturday's show there was a familiar ring to the laughter that kept popping up at times that unless there was someone off camera doing something funny that the TV audience wasn't being let in on.

The truely funny bits had quite different sounding laughter. Have the budget cuts at SNL also taken away the live audience?

Mark Foley admits...

Representative Mark Foley's representatives have released a statement that in addition to having a drinking problem and having been molested as a young teen, that he is also:
A female
The victim of a murder
A senior citizen
And anything else that will help him get a shorter sentance and make his current legal problems go away.
