Ga Ga: The Daily Show‘s Resident Minority Reporter Wyatt Cenac

Wyatt Cenac joined Comedy Central's The Daily Show in June and has been entertaining us ever since with dead-pan comedic reporting on the presidential election, the economy, and black people's popularity among white supremacists. The Dallas native honed his talents performing stand-up, improv and sketch comedy at the Los Angeles Upright Citizens Brigade and writing for the animated program King of the Hill. He received his first taste of national exposure when his impersonation of Barack Obama garnered a healthy Youtube following. Cenac can be seen in the upcoming independent film Medicine for Melancholy, an angst ridden story about two twenty-something year-olds falling in love in "a rapidly gentrifying" San Francisco. Blindie is ga ga for Cenac and will be watching his rise to stardom.

Sneak Peek: Zoe Saldana ‘Held Hands’ With The Original Uhura For Star Trek

Blindie fave, actress Zoe Saldana, appears in a new Star Trek shot as Lieutenant Nyota Uhura in filmmaker J.J. Abrams hyped prequel. The Dominican beauty from Queens, who made her big-screen debut in 2000's Center Stage, said of meeting Nichelle Nichols (who originated the sex symbol Trekkie role), "We held hands as we talked and Nichelle explained just what, as a black woman, her on-screen kiss with Shatner in a 1968 episode meant at the time." Saldana, who shared similar history in a different era when she starred opposite hunks Orlando Bloom in 2004's Haven and Ashton Kutcher in 2005's Guess Who, added, "I have nothing but respect for what they were fighting for. She is an icon."

ObamaNation: In Less Than One Week We Can Elect Barack Obama as the Next President

Blindie hasn't been coy about who we're rooting for to lead us through these dark times, and in less than one week, we'll have the chance to elect Senator Barack Obama as the next President of the United States. Obama recently made a speech as to why we need to continue to fight harder as his supporters to elect him, ignoring the hype of poll numbers and pundits. Whether it's donating $25 or calling voters in battleground states, please support Obama at BarackObama.com.

Ga Ga: 90210‘s Jessica Lucas, The CW’s Latest Ambiguous Ethnic Girl

Three weeks ago, Jessica Lucas made her sassy debut on The CW's remake of 90210, where not only did she trade witty banter with the hot lit teacher, but she revealed herself as an undercover cop--and another dose of ethnic ambiguity on primetime TV. Lucas, who is best known for running around New York in that nauseous hit Cloverfield, is reportedly half Pakistani and half black. But like Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr who came before her, there's no mention of her background on the show, where she plays new transfer student-drug agent Kimberly MacIntyre. While the 23-year-old's resume boasts the best credits a scream queen can have, Blindie hopes this hot dash of sass will stick around West Beverly High--hopefully exploring the undeniable chemistry she has with Ryan Eggold (aka: the Hot Lit Teacher).

CBS Makes Huge Blunder Taking The Ex List Off The Air

One of Blindie's favorite new shows, CBS 's hour-long comedy The Ex List, has been taken off the network's schedule. With only four episodes that have aired thus far, the hilarious and witty show (Blindie hasn't seen something as female-oriented and smart like The Ex List since the original Gilmore Girls), starring the amazing Elizabeth Reaser, is about a 30-something searching for her soul mate among her long roster of exes. Despite the major setback, we're looking forward to seeing Reaser as Esme in November's Twilight based on the first installment in Stephenie Meyer's vampire series. Watch Reaser in all her glory on The Ex List here at CBS.com.

Gossip Girl Watch: Art And Unrequited Love

The Gossip Girl crew is up to their old tricks of scheming and hooking up with each other! And the new cutie on the scene, Aaron Rose played by John Patrick Amedori (of Stick it fame!), adds some much needed new blood to the romance drama. Taylor Momsen must be having the best season ever as her character Jenny Humphrey goes from high school drop out to fashion intern to chic party girl all in the blink of an eye. Next week she's a hot new breakout designer! Here are Blindie's top ten moments from Gossip Girl's "Pret-a-Poor-J" episode:

  1. Eleanor Waldorf convinces Jenny to remake her dress design so she can pass it off as a Waldorf original to the Barneys and Bendel buyers, but like a true teenager Jenny hangs out and turns in a sloppy piece of work.
  2. Jenny tells off Eleanor, takes back her designs and quits! All on the advice and prompting of her new friend Agnes who kept her out all night and ran off in the dress she was supposed to work on.
  3. Serena has found new artsy indie guy Aaron Rose to romance. Too bad he just rode away on his motorcycle with another girl! But we hear Amedori is signed up for at least three more episodes, plenty of time for him to get it on with Serena and make Dan jealous.
  4. More genius dialogue!: "Ever since Charlize Theron became the face of Dior I've been wanting to change my signature scent," Blair tells Chuck; and "Unfortunately there was no hard evidence...literally," Blair says of her failed attempt at turning Chuck on.
  5. Blair tries every trick in the book to seduce Chuck, including candles and even spilling a drink on his crotch, but alas her "itch" never gets scratched. They both decide to put off their love affair because "Chuck and Blair go to the movies" and "Chuck and Blair hold hands" just doesn't sound right.
  6. Dan Humphrey coaches Blair as she tries to bed Chuck.
  7. Oh the irony, as Dan explains to Vanessa that Blair is humane and Vanessa tells Dan that Chuck is actually the human one.
  8. Jenny dances around in her bra with new bestie Agnes while Max the photographer snaps away on his camera. We can't wait to see what blog those photos will turn up on!
  9. Nate walks in on a shirtless Jenny and her new friends, and like a knight in shining armour he whisks her away before she gets taken advantage of. Too late, she's a minor who was just photographed in her undies -sounds like borderline child pornography to us!
  10. Jenny and Nate kiss! Is there anyone Nate hasn't hooked up with?! Does Jenny have to take everything that was once Blair's?
