George Lopez, the comedian, has a new sitcom on FX, "Saint George. " Like its stablemate "Anger Management," which guarantees you'll have Charlie Sheen to kick around for a while, it is being launched on what's called a 10/90 deal: If the first 10 episodes do well enough by some secret contractual standard, the network buys 90 more, to make a syndication-friendly 100.

George Lopez has been gearing up for the launch later this week of his new FX comedy "Saint George," which is about a successful entrepreneur grappling with a messy personal and family life. The series stands out as a personal touchstone for the 52-year-old comedian, whose résumé includes a groundbreaking network sitcom, a hip late-night cable talk show and sold-out arena performances.

Bruno Mars and his band wore Saint Laurent in their Super Bowl halftime show. Racked toted up the numbers and concluded that Mars' outfit would cost $5,830 (if one paid for it oneself). [Racked] In an interview with W magazine, Miley Cyrus says her image is calculated and that she wants to encourage girls to go for personal style. "Everyone to me looks like Vanna White," she says. She also says her rustic childhood may have something to do with the crop tops and other body-baring outfits she wears now: “We never were inside, and we never wore shoes, I think it's why I like wearing no clothes so much and I'm always naked.” [W]

The Seahawks face the challenge of avoiding overconfidence in light of their 34-7 demolition of New Orleans in Seattle five weeks ago. "The first thing I addressed with the team when we came back together was, 'What happened in the past doesn't tell the story of what's going to happen in the future,'¿" Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll said. "So you have to have the discipline to do that. " Something that won't change: CenturyLink Field will be loud. Seahawks fans - nicknamed the 12th Man - set a Guinness Book World Record for crowd noise earlier this season, lost the title to Kansas City around midseason, and reclaimed it during with the victory over the Saints.
