HIGHLIGHTS: There's a new diet called the BOREDOM DIET that says you can lose weight by eating nothing but MAC AND CHEESE . . . or any other delicious food you love. All you have to do is eat NOTHING BUT that food. In a study, researchers found after just one week, people got bored of the food and were eating about 100 calories less per meal.
HIGHLIGHTS: It turns out prisoners manufacture all kinds of products . . . not just license plates. Prisoners have helped make picnic tables . . . canoes . . . jeans . . . human silhouette targets for shooting practice . . . and Victoria's Secret lingerie.
HIGHLIGHTS: A guy in England is selling his beat up Mercedes on eBay, and to get some attention, he's targeting CHUBBY CHASERS. He had his deliciously chubby girlfriend pose with the car, and it seems to be working, since the bidding for the car is up past $240,000 . . . which is at least 10 times the value.
HIGHLIGHTS: It's been 15 years since JARED FROM SUBWAY started losing weight. And now, his net worth is apparently up to $15 MILLION. He's never had any other job in his life . . . all he's ever done is travel around promoting Subway. But he's worth it to them. Since he became their spokesman, their sales have gone from $3 billion a year to $11.5 billion.
The title of "The Tonight Show" will be tweaked slightly when JIMMY FALLON takes over in February. It's going to be called "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", as opposed to "The Tonight Show WITH Jimmy Fallon".

HIGHLIGHTS: Even celebrities get worried about whether they're good enough to stay on top. MIRANDA LAMBERT says, quote, "I freak out every time. 'Is this gonna work? Is this gonna be the album that stops selling?" She's recording her next album in August and she promises that this one will be less serious than her other albums.
