Too Cool for School

SHOW STOPPER N Sync’s Justin Timberlake, 19, officially graduated from high school during the group’s show in Timberlake’s hometown of Memphis, Tenn., on Friday. According to allstar.com, one of Timberlake’s former teachers came on stage after the group performed ”I Drive Myself Crazy” and awarded Timberlake his diploma. Can we expect the eldest ‘N Sync-er, Chris Kirkpatrick, 28, to receive his honorary doctorate during Thursday’s Atlanta show?
WB UPDATE Good news for three of the network’s struggling shows: ”Felicity,” ”Jack & Jill,” and ”Roswell” have been renewed for the fall season, WB executives said today at a presentation for advertisers. ”Roswell,” the sci fi romance series that had been floundering in various time slots this year, recently found its niche on Mondays at 9:00 p.m., and also got a boost from fans who deluged the network with bottles of tabasco sauce. ”I think that changing the direction — to more action and sci fi — saved the show,” says actress Katherine Heigl, who plays one of ”Roswell”’s tabasco-swigging alien teens. ”And I think that the fans saved the show, with their hot sauce campaign. It was a vote of confidence.”
