Mitch Mitchell, drummer for The Jimi Hendrix Experience, has died. Rock out to "Spanish Castle Magic" today in his honor.

In other super sad news, a former American Idol contestant committed suicide outside Paula Abdul's house.

Sheesh! Let's get to something a bit more cheerful...

EW has announced its top 25 entertainers of the year. It seems a little early for list season to kick off, but hey, I love list season, so I'll take it.

SNL has added two female cast members. Meanwhile, Fox has at long last canceled MadTV.

Ausiello says NBC has axed My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle, too.

EW's TV reporter extraordinnaire also reports that B.J. Novak is taking a leave from The Office to work on films, specifically Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. That's no surprise, seeing how Novak's Ryan character has kind of hit a dead end. The bummer is he won't be writing episodes for a while either.

Damn. Still mostly downer news today. What else?

Suge Knight has sued Kanye West.

Anthony Keidis' childhood is becoming an HBO series.

Kelly Clarkson's upcoming single is called "My Life Would Suck Without You." Hah!

If canceled, Pushing Daisies will wrap up its storyline in comic book form.
