‘Hope for Haiti Now’ to Top Album Chart

They asked you gave: The all-star Hope for Haiti Now telethon that aired last Friday night has raised more than $61 million in charitable donations, according to a press release sent out yesterday.

The benefit album collecting all the telethon performances from Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Bono and the Edge, and everyone else posted very strong digital sales over the weekend, too — so much so that Hope for Haiti Now is already confidently projected to top the Billboard200 album sales chart with around 150,000 units sold when those results are released tomorrow morning. So long, Susan Boyle. (She would likely have climbed back to the No. 1 spot if not for the Haiti benefit album; she’s now projected to remain at No. 2.)

That’s all the more impressive since the Hope for Haiti Now album can be bought only as a download, not a CD in stores. This will mark the first time that a digital-only album has topped the Billboard 200 in the 54 years since that chart began. Did you buy the Hope for Haiti Now set online? Are you impressed by how many people bought these tunes for charity? Let us know in the comments. The next group of Glee episodes will include feature some original music… at least one episode, but maybe more. Check out the details here!

There’s this new movie coming out called Babies. Just check out this trailer, please. I DARE you not to smile. DARE Yeah. Click here for your updated January TV calendar! See when your favorite shows are returning or premiering, thanks to The TV Addict! NBC is loading up the order for pilots this season!! This is GREAT news for actors and pretty good news for most TV viewers. I say most because I try not to watch new shows since my DVR already works overtime, but we all know how that goes.

Speaking of, one of my absolute favorite shows (and favorite drama… sorry Mad Men) is Big Love. I know I’ve talked about it on here before but the 4th season starts Sunday night and HBO has graciously put together a video of everything you need to know from seasons 1-3. I cannot recommend this show enough. If you’re interested, check out this video below and then catch the premiere Sunday night at 10 on HBO.
