Drew Carey is the new host of “The Price is Right.”
Music – Finally, a new #1 in the UK Chart. It is “The Way I Are” by Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E. Umbrella by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z has been dethroned to #3.
Movies – The Simpsons Movie was released on Friday. Overall, there are mixed reviews to the movie, but it did not deter fans from going out. The movie grossed approximately $73 million for the opening weekend. The Simpsons Movie was enjoyable and funny. It kind of felt like an extended episode.
