Notes: Friday's Dump It column focused on the idea that "Cars 2" better win the weekend for all those screens it would be on. Tires would roll if it didn't was my speculation. No worry, it won the weekend. Another big story for me was the 65 percent drop for "Green Lantern" in its second week just as they announced a sequel would be in the offing. I counted five films of the top ten in double digits. Meanwhile, a holiday kickoff for Transformers 3" will arrive Wednesday. The others will wait until Friday. They are "Larry Crowne" and "Monte Carlo."
- Soaps, for the most part, have seen better days. However, look for Carol Burnett head to "All My Children" in September.
- No, "American Pickers" is not a show about that nasty habit we have all been caught doing at a stoplight.
