Borat made red-state Americans look silly by bringing poo to dinner parties. In 'Religulous,' Maher will just mock people right to their faces.

News Corp. has just posted its figures for the latest quarter, and ouch. The profits at Rupert Murdoch's behemoth have dropped 24 percent compared to last year. The movie division is doing splendidly — Fox's earnings jumped 57 percent, with a good chunk of the $470 million take attributed to the ultraprofitable Borat. The problems are on the TV end: Broadcast profits are down. Then there's MyNetworkTV, a blatantly doomed "mini-network" that sounds scarily inspired by Murdoch's purchase of MySpace (another costly exercise with no clear yield in sight). Even the man himself admits MyNetwork has performed "far below expectations." No word on how Rupe's quixotic devotion to the Post is affecting the bottom line; our uneducated guess is, however, it's nothing a mere twinge of Sasha Baron Cohen's mustache can't erase. News Corp. Quarterly Profit Declined 24% [Crain's]

Former DNC chair Terry McAuliffe has a new memoir out, in which he tells stories about raising money. George Michael did a private New Year's Eve concert in Russia for $3 million. Wilmer Valderrama is set to launch a menswear line. Meatpacking club Double Seven is moving down the block. Will Ferrell won't do Elf 2. Kevin Connolly pulled a blonde out of the way of an ambulance in Miami.
Barry Diller denies that Frank Gehry built him an invader-proof, bullet-proof bunker in the bathroom of his office at the new IAC headquarters. So Pamela and Kid didn't break up over Borat — they broke up because Pam partied too much and left the kids home with Kid (and maybe lied about her miscarriage). New crotch-flashing best friends Paris Hilton and Britney Spears will host the Billboard Music Awards Monday in Vegas. Rush & Molloy "breaks" the news that the "raisin face" Nicole Richie was referring to on her blog is Rachel Zoe, which, like, everyone knew two days ago.

(And yes, the director's Jewish.) Cindy Adams speculates (twice!) that ABC's Primetime co-anchor John Quinones will take over Ed Bradley's vacant seat at 60 Minutes. Liz Smith reminds us that Rudy and Judy Giuliani are truly, madly, deeply in love. Lillo Brancato, of A Bronx Tale fame, is in solitary confinement at Rikers Island for a third time (this time for heroin). And the Post scolds the Daily News for calling a kettle black.
