We rate pop culture for the week of September 15, 2008 including Tina Fey’s Palin impression, ”TRL,” Lauren Conrad’s book deal, and more

Hits
· Tina Fey returns to SNL with a pitch-perfect Sarah Palin impression. Bullseye votes for an encore
· TRL dies at the tender age of 10. Average noise in Times Square to drop by approximately three decibels
· The trailer for Doubt: Just when you got over Mamma Mia!, here comes Meryl Streep as a judgmental nun to terrify you again

Near Misses

· Lauren Conrad to write three young-adult fiction books

Misses

· Lauren Conrad to become the fifth face on Mount Rushmore.
