Boy, talk about losing sight of the important things in life. I thought Kate Gosselin was history -- a cancelled has-been relegated to the junk heap of reality TV "stars" -- used, abused, exploited and trashed out by the TV industry after all the ad-dollar toothpaste was squeezed out of the the tube. But no, I was wrong, and Kate Gosselin is starting what TLC describes as another season tonight at 9. But she is starting it amid rumors of cancellation -- what a way to fly. Check out the way this intreview with "Today" show host Ann Curry opens on a question about being cancelled.

The joint appearance by President Obama and Hillary Clinton on “60 Minutes” wasn't about the Democratic nomination in 2016, as some analysts have insisted this weekend. Watching the actual interview Sunday night, I am certain it was about something both much more immediate and long lasting. It was President Obama using TV - and the folks at "60 Minutes" happily allowing themselves to be used - to write the first draft of history on Clinton's performance as secretary of state.

Call it another pitiful ending for Sarah Palin. In what looks like a Friday afternoon leak-dump, RealClearPolitics first reported that Fox News had not renewed Palin's contract to be an analyst. That report was based on an unnamed source. Brian Stelter, of the New York Times, later confirmed it on Twitter. And so ends most of what's left of Palin's fling with fame since 2008, when she was named the GOP vice presidential candidate in a craven act John McCain should never be able to fully live down.

Miss California keeps crown Miss California USA can retain her crown even though she failed to reveal she had posed in her underwear as a teenager, pageant owner Donald Trump said Tuesday. Carrie Prejean appeared by Trump's side as he made the announcement at New York's Trump Tower. Trump also defended the answer that Prejean gave at last month's Miss USA pageant when she was asked her view of marriage by judge Perez Hilton, a celebrity blogger. She said she believes marriage is between a man and a woman.

With rumors circulating that legendary quarterback Brett Favre is joining "Dancing with the Stars," the sports blogosphere is close to imploding on itself (and I know, I'm now contributing to it). If the rumors are true, Favre will follow in the dance steps of retired greats such as Emmitt Smith, Kurt Warner and Jerry Rice when the 12th season of the ABC dance-off debuts March 21. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought we got rid of this guy. I used to be a Favre fan back when being anti-Favre was considered to be borderline unpatriotic.

As we wheel into a big week TV and politics with the first GOP debate to include Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday and President Obama's long overdue jobs plan on Thursday, a couple of small observations demand to be made. First of all, I could not let the holiday weekend end without some mention of one of the most outrageous statements of Election 2012: Sarah Palin telling Tea Party members in Iowa Saturday that she is "not for sale. " Parts of her speech about "crony capitalism" were dead on the money.

Reality television hit a pathetic new low last week, with the apparent dissolution of the marriage of Jon and Kate Gosselin. I didn't watch the show Jon & Kate Plus Eight before the announcement, so they're not going to miss me as a viewer when the show returns in August. I only know what's going on because their split-up has been reported ad nauseam on major national news programs, with all sorts of painful clips from the show and pointless interviews with the kind of commentators who like to remark inanely on celebrities' intensely personal family tragedies.

One imagines the promo will pretty much write itself. "Don't miss a moment of the high fashion, high drama and hijinks as 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' returns for Season 2. Join the pampered princesses of the world's most famous ZIP Code as they struggle with questions all the money in the world cannot answer. Can sisters Kim and Kyle repair their broken relationship after last season's fight? Can Camille find happiness in her new life without Kelsey? And, what will Taylor do when she finds out her estranged husband committed suicide after seeing his private life played out as a cheesy soap opera to sell hemorrhoid medicine and feminine hygiene products to a mass audience?"

Last week, I wrote about HBO's "Game Change" right after screening the two-hour film about the 2008 presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin. You can read it here . I described the film as "so political in so many good ways," and predicted it would be one of the most important cultural movies of the year if it generated the the kind of discussion and debate about Palin, the campaign, media, politics and history that I thought would. The film does not premiere until March 10, but that debate has already started in earnest, especially with those on the right attacking the film without having seen it -- often in the most ideological and uninformed ways.

I am too tired to go crazy about this. And there really are so many hugely more important things going on the world practically every day. But ... I cannot let the addition of HLN host Nancy Grace to the lineup of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" pass without comment. It is such an exquisite example of how calculating and exploitative prime-time network TV can be. Here is what I find debased about the selection of Grace: She probably got the job and the $500,000 that goes with it because she decided on her own that Casey Anthony was guilty and then, ignoring any sense of respect for the judicial system or fair play, pounded away on Anthony's alleged guilt day and night.

Maybe all anyone needs to know about BET's 10-part "documentary series" on Michael Vick is that the NFL quarterback's production company, MV7, is one of the producing partners. So don't expect Frederick Wiseman, the Maysles brothers or anything approaching the hard-eyed truth-telling of those legendary documentary filmmakers here - even though BET is trying to suggest such credibility by calling "The Michael Vick Project" a "documentary series." This is more like reality TV, and it is all stacked in favor of making the man who went to prison for running a brutal dogfighting operation on his Virginia farm look like a mythic figure on a heroic quest - a protagonist on an epic journey, who has suffered tremendously and is now on the comeback trail to redemption, fighting righteously against great odds.
