Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Here’s a shocker: Denise Richards is ending her almost-three-year marriage to Charlie Sheen, despite being six months pregnant with their second child. Richards’ agent has confirmed the divorce.

I’m betting she caught him cheating. I can’t think of any other reason for such an abrupt ending.

no foul language
So you wanna be a cheeky monkey and order your NFL Authentic Personalized Jersey with the word “CROTCHMONKEY” proudly emblazoned across the back?

Don’t even try it, because the league don’t play that, nor does it play that with about 1,100 other naughty words/phrases on its official merchandise. So much for the customer always being right.

Originally, the word “gay” was on the verboten list. After this was publicized, the NFL cleared it, ostensibly because that’s actually the name of a New England cornerback.

I’ve seen similar lists over the years, but happened to find the source material for this one from Mrs. Mogul.

Just in case you’re not familiar with some of the more… provocative titles listed, keep in mind that some (all?) of the links below should be considered Not Safe For Work:


AGE 18-25
For Women — Jane
For Men — Juggs

AGE 26-30
For Women — Elle
For Men — Playboy

AGE 31-35
For Women — Cosmo
For Men — Swank

AGE 36-40
For Women — Redbook
For Men — Hustler

AGE 41-45
For Women — Good Housekeeping
For Men — Golf Digest

AGE 46-50
For Women — Reader’s Digest
For Men — Jane

Women mature, men eat their own tails. It’s clear to me.

I just took an online consumer-opinion survey. I take a handful of these each month, so I’m used to the drill: Establishment questions, a good deal of repetition to get as specific results as possible, etc.

But this one was slightly weirder than usual. I could tell you why, but I’ll let this question from the survey do the talking for me:

What is the “boldest” move on TV?

Feel free to vote on it. You can conveniently ignore that the Jackie Robinson achievement wasn’t a “TV moment”…

When you think of “Desperate Housewives”, you think of sexy vixens, trashy affairs and catty back-stabbing.

The only thing missing from this intoxicating mix is, of course, the white-hot screen presence of Bob Newhart.

Problem solved: Newhart will join the cast of “Housewives” for a multi-episode run.

For my part, I’m hoping this leads to a revival of the Bob Newhart Drinking Game.

Oh, and by the way:

On March 13, The Bob Newhart Show will receive TV Land’s Icon Award at a ceremony in Santa Monica, Calif. The first season of the TV classic will be released on DVD next month.

Newhart’s memoirs will be published in 2006 by Hyperion.

Hyperion is Disney’s property, as is “Housewives” network ABC. So it all synergizes together quite nicely.
