You may remember Jennifer Morrison from the two minutes she spent playing Captain Kirk's mommy in this past Summer's (today's the first day of Fall!) little indie Star Trek. If you happened to miss her birthing scene because you were buying Sour Patch Kids, you can see her a lot more on House M.D., which premieres its 6th season tonight on FOX. It looks like her character Cameron is going to marry Chase this year, which is interesting because those two were engaged in real life and broke it off right before the marriage. Talk about conflict! Let's hope some of the awkwardness shines through on screen. A word from Jennifer: "This isn't technically the normal way that medicine works."Oh great! Thanks for pulling back the curtain and revealing all the smoke and mirrors behind the magic of television. You're such a party-pooper, Jennifer. …But I'd still play doctor with you. Here are a few more pics of Jennifer after the jump that won't poop your party!
Tonight, President Obama will visit the Late Show with David Letterman, and is set to be the only guest (sorry if you got bumped). This is his sixth time on the show, but the first time back since his election, and the speculation is that he'll be using this appearance to talk about the future of health care in America. So what exactly might be said during his hour on late night TV? We gave that a think over here at Screen Junkies, and in the grand tradition of Dave, came up with a Top Ten list of our own. So here it is, an entirely speculative list… Top Ten Things Obama Might Say on Letterman

Let's just break the bad news right off the bat. Tiffany Dupont, who stars as Frannie Morgan in Greek, loves Christianity bunches and bunches. We're not saying there's anything wrong with being best friends with Jesus, but that likely means he's (He's?) putting the kibosh on sex until marriage, my friends. Damn! And I've got two strikes against me because A) we're not married and B) I'm as Jewish as the day (and the nose) is long. She'd bring me home to the folks and they'd probably throw holy water at me. Which would sting because on top of being Jewish I'm also a vampire. Awww that's THREE strikes! A word from Tiffany: "No, Mel Gibson was not involved."Yeah, that's what you think, Tiffany. But chances are he's pulling those strings from a secret laboratory in his Malibu mansion. Mel Gibson is always involved. Martin Riggs is probably even involved in these pics after the jump…

Gillian Jacobs stars as Britta in the new sitcom Community, which starts tonight on the network that took away five blocks of scripted drama time so they could give Jay Leno his own show because they were afraid of losing his massive chin. Anyway…the sexy blond plays opposite "Talk Soup" dude Joel McHale and, drum roll please…Chevy Chase! That's right, folks, he's back! I know this post is supposed to be about Gillian, but come on, Chevy Chase is back, and he's supposed to be funny again. NBC should give HIM his own show five nights a week. Oh wait, FOX already did that back in '93… A word from Gillian: "I was actually watching a rerun the other day, and I was like, ‘I recognize that place! I've seen that swing before!'"Ah yes, the swing. It brings back so many fond memories. Memories of never having anyone to push you on it because you're a poor, ugly little orphan who's addicted to smack. Thanks for ripping that one out of a deep, dark place, Gillian!Here's some pics after the jump that'll get you swingin'!
MTV has announced they are developing a spin-off to one of our favorite cult shows, Greg the Bunny. The new series, Warren the Ape, focuses on Greg's puppet counterpart Warren T. Ape DeMontague as he attempts to pick up the tattered shreds of his acting career. Failing to win any roles, DeMontague agrees to appear on a reality show as a last ditch effort. He's just like Trishelle. Both will do anything for attention and neither mind having fists stuffed up their butts.

Nina Dobrev stars as "Elena Gilbert" in the new show The Vampire Diaries, and guess what? Her character's in love with a vampire. Dammit, what is wrong with women?! Why do they find fanged bloodsuckers so damn attractive? Twilight, True Blood, and now intimate journal entries on the subject. Most of the girls I know don't even like hickeys on their necks, let alone pustulating fang punctures. Fine, go fall in love with your vampire, Nina. Take the ridiculous ratings that come with it. I'll cry salty tears like the mortal I am. Your new boyfriend is incapable of crying, you know. A word from Nina: "There is something about a man who lurks in the dark."Way to invite the stalkers, Nina. Like seriously, you can't say stuff like that because stalkers pay very close attention. Then they pop out the dark, naked; you run away screaming; they get arrested and testify that you…ASKED FOR IT. And they might have a case.Here's some more of what you're sure to ask for. Pics after the jump!

We here at Screen Junkies are aaaalllll about Gossip Girl. Big time. Like, completely into it.
Well would you get a load of those pearly whites… Dianna Agron has a smile that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Plus she can sing and dance (as evidenced by her character Quinn in the new show Glee). She's a singing, dancing, cheerleading, backstabbing wonder woman who just so happens to be 23 in real life. I'd take her overHayden Panettiere anyday. Hayden's character on Heroes may be able to heal herself, but what the hell is a healing factor when you can hit a high C note?! A word from Dianna: "I was really too ambitious for my own good." Well we've got a quote for you, Dianna. "Ruthless ambition leads to its own destruction." It comes from a little English rapper named Willy Shakes. Take a lesson from MacBeth and don't murder your way to the top. It never works out. Trust us… Here's some pics after the jump that aren't a felony!
Jay Leno moves to the 10PM slot.
Kanye's VMA outburst rules the headlines again this morning as the rapper apologized on last night's premiere of The Jay Leno Show. To his credit, West faced the music and didn't cancel his scheduled appearance. Though that may be due to the fact that he was on to perform with Jay-Z and to back out would have upset his camp. West did seem sincere and got emotional when Leno shamed him by asking what his deceased mother would think of his behavior. And then Kevin Eubanks just chuckled out of the blue. That guy laughs at the most innappropriate moments. He's like Dr. Hibbard with a guitar.We apologize in advance for these morning links…Beyonce visits Zoobilee Zoo.

Ah, yes. The "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought…" function of an online store. It's a pretty darn incredible invention that works on multiple levels. On the one hand, stores like Amazon.com use it to get you to spend way more than you should. On the other hand, sometimes the "Also Bought…" function can be a very telling market research tool. Here are some TV on DVD box sets with overly truthful suggestions…
Tonight's TV Preview features the return of Leno AND a Kanye West temper tantrum. CAUTION: You should only watch if you have a desire to punch something. CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!
Jayma Mays stars as the germaphobic teacher Emma Pillsbury in the new musical/comedy show Glee, but her red locks aren't a stranger to primetime television. Jayma's appeard in House, Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Entourage, and my personal favorite, Six Feet Under, among many others. She's also brought her fiery good looks to the big screen in Red Eye, and, let's forget to mention, Paul Blart: Mall Cop. There, we forgot to mention it. Go back and look for her in all the things we didn't forget to mention. She won't be hard to spot. A word from Jayma: "Oh sh*t! A talking beaver!"Man, there are so many ways we could go with a joke pertaining to the aforementioned quote. And surprisingly enough, most of them are too dirty for this site. We just hope you don't take it out of context, like we've done here, because the last thing we want is to spread the rumor that Jayma has verbal private parts. Oooooooh now we've gone and done it!Check out some pics of Jayma after the jump with zero talking beavers in them!

Charo Covers Rihanna… Poorly. – Watch more Funny Videos The above video, from a recent Jerry Lewis telethon, features fifty-something pop icon Charo covering Rihanna's "Please Don't Stop The Music." I recommend watching it en todo, but if you want to get to the best part, fast forward to about 3:05 in the clip. There you'll find a mortified Jerry Lewis making a face he probably hasn't made since the lights went up after the first screening of his directorial debut, The Day the Clown Cried.

Jessalyn Gilsig (one of the more interesting names I've ever typed) stars as Terri Schuester in Glee, premiering next Wednesday. Jessalyn is no stranger to TV, as it appears she's been in almost every show in the past ten years. Alright, not every show, but the list includes Nip/Tuck, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, CSI:NY, Law & Order, Prison Break, NYPD Blue, Boston Public, and The Practice. Damn Jessalyn, you've been bus-y. You must keep your trim figure running from set to set to set to set. A word from Jessalyn: "I'm proud that I can be single. I think it's good being alone." Oh so that's how you wanna play it? Alright, I can act aloof, too. Yeah, being single is awesome. I love not coming home to someone who cares for me and rubs my shoulders when I'm stressed. Frozen TV dinners rock my world, as my lonely tears drip into luke warm apple cobbler! At least there are pics of you after the jump to keep me company…
