It's the biggest plane, on the longest route. A Qantas Airbus A380 touched down yesterday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The inaugural flight was about 15 hours long, from Sydney, Australia, to DFW. The non-stop flight covered more than 8,500 miles. Qantas previously flew the Sydney-Dallas route with the Boeing 747, which required a stopover in Brisbane, Australia. Taking the new flight won't be cheap. A couch ticket is about $1,900. First class runs up to 13-grand. For that kind of money passengers get pajamas and a sheepskin mattress.

football pays the bills in prime-time television.

NBC's ``Sunday Night Football'' charges $627,300 for a 30-second advertisement, more than any other program in prime-time broadcast television. That's according to a survey by the trade publication Advertising Age. CBS' Thursday football telecast, being shown this fall for the first time, is second at $483,333.

Television's top-rated comedy, ``The Big Bang Theory,'' is the scripted show with the priciest ads. The top drama is NBC's ``The Black List.''

Advertisers pay a premium for younger audiences, which is why CBS' ``NCIS'' didn't make Ad Age's top 10.

Brain Freeze, Maybe?

A Peruvian author who lives in New Jersey is suing the folks at Disney for $250 million dollars, saying that stories, characters and plots in Frozen were stolen from her autobiographical works.

Read that again: a movie featuring a woman with the power to freeze everything, plus a talking reindeer and snowman, stole ideas from a New Jersey's autobiography.

Yup, makes perfect sense.

The woman refuses to back down, and is demanding a jury trial.

Disney, for its part, told CNN that the woman needs to "let it go."

Nicely played, Disney. I see what you did there.

Draking's a Good Thing?

Drake, the Canadian singer, got his start as Drake, the actor on the TV show, Degrassi.

On the show, his character, Jimmy Brooks, was wheelchair-bound.

So a couple in Toronto, after reminiscing about Degrassi one night and seeing some handicapped signs, decided to create some stickers that put Drake's head on top of the stick figures in the wheelchairs.

It's called Draking, and the couple says they're doing it to make people smile.

Sure, technically it's vandalism, and sure, it's probably offensive, but if you're smiling...

Never mind. It's still wrong. But Drake thinks it's great. Go figure.

Secet Service Grilling

Things aren’t looking too rosy for the Secret Service today, as the agency’s director will have to answer questions in a congressional hearing on White House security measures.

This a day after it was revealed that the White House fence-jumper from two weeks ago actually got a lot further into the building than first reported. Turns out he overpowered an agent and made it to the East Room before anyone was able to stop him.

Another story released over the weekend suggests that it took the Secret Service about four days back in 2011 to realize that someone had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House.

If this weren’t so serious, it would be almost funny.

It’s almost like the Keystone Cops have been resurrected. Read about them here...

Get Thee Behind Me in Line, Satan!

Nicholas Cage has a new movie coming out on Friday called Left Behind. It's about the people who aren't taken up in The Rapture.

And a famous Biblical character wants you to see it. Or not.

Producers released some posters over the weekend that quote Satan: "Please do not bring unbelievers to this movie."

You've got to check out the reactions some people have posted to the film's Facebook page. They actually believe Beelzebub gave that quote.

Do you think he's the first guy they asked for a quote...?

And the Winner of the Lindsay Lohan Wannabe Award Is...

Amanda Bynes - another child actress who's having trouble becoming an adult - was arrested at 3 o'clock Sunday morning. According to the California Highway Patrol, she was "driving under the influence of a drug,"

Hers how they nabbed her. She stopped at a red light. But in the middle of an intersection.

An officer pulled her over, and noted her "disheveled appearance," suggesting that she was under the influence of some substance.

A drug recognition expert was called in - seriously, that's a job now? - and Amanda ended up getting bookedand then released on $15,000 bail.

Here's the thing: she's currently on probation. Which could mean that when she sees the judge in a month or so, she could end up doing time.

Check out this video of her making another court appearance last year, disguised as a Smurf.

Denzel Equalizes the Competition

Denzel Washington is back in the box office sweepstakes, and he's on top.

Over the weekend, his new movie, The Equalizer grossed over $35 million.

In it, Denzel plays a former special forces fighter who comes out of retirement to fight the Russian mob.

The movie is loosely based on the TV series of the same name from the late 1980s that starred Edward Woodward.

And before the movie even opened, they were working on a sequel.

That's some powerful faith right there.

Clinton Grandchild Arrives

Chelsea Clinton gave birth to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky last week, the first grandchild for former president Bill Clinton and possible future president, Hillary Clinton.

The Clintons are simply delighted to be grandparents.

In fact, Bill tweeted a note to hours-old Charlotte.

"@billclinton" said he and "@HillaryClinton" appear to be very happy about Charlottes arrival.

And they've still got a year or so to decide whether the baby will need to call grandpa and grandma by their Twitter handles...
