‘Babble On’: Nothing Gets Infotainment Hot and Bothered Like the Oscars

The Oscars! It’s a night when the stars shine bright, but infotainment shines brighter! This week, "Babble On" pays tribute to the flood of red-carpet shrieking, yelling, and inappropriate questions, with Precious's Gabourey Sidibe being asked about a Chris Rock grope, an in-depth look at Hilary Swank’s peekaboo dress, and Tina Fey being dubbed Miss Oscars 2010 by Cojo. Attention must be paid! Also: Tiger Woods, because not even the Oscars can loosen infotainment’s obsession with sex addiction.
