Meetings and interviews have me short on time, so here is a short links list. Chow down on these:

PopMatters has an interesting feature about why The Office has thrived while Arrested Development petered out.

OU? Oh yeah. My alma mater added a new scandal, though I don't consider leading the nation in illegal downloads to be that scandalous.

Lots of good stuff out of Hollywood today. Taye Diggs has been tapped to co-star in the Kate Walsh Grey's Anatomy spinoff I mentioned yesterday, and Yahoo is launching a musical newscast.

Also, the lovely Marcia Cross gave birth to twin girls, and Jimmy Fallon is being groomed to take over Late Night when Conan moves to The Tonight Show. Here's more on Fallon from The New York Times.

Surprise, surprise: Chinese Democracy has been pushed back once again.

Ever hear of Sophisti-Pop? Here's a beginner's guide.

Finally, The OC dies tonight. Say goodbye! And keep saying it!
