Good news for fans of “Lost’’: President Obama doesn’t plan to mess up the television show’s season premiere. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said he doesn’t foresee a scenario in which the State of the Union address will fall on Feb. 2, the same night the three-hour season premiere of the show’s final season airs. A Facebook group called “Americans Against the State of the Union on the Same Night as LOST’’ had more than 4,000 members as of yesterday. (AP)

‘Hannah’ run to end?

“Hannah Montana’’ may be history. A Disney Channel executive said the popular show starring Miley Cyrus is likely to shut down for good after filming its fourth season. “You never know in this business . . . but right now we’re scheduled to wrap after shooting this new batch of episodes,’’ Adam Bonnett, senior vice president of programming, told the New York Post yesterday. Production on season four is set to begin later this month. Those episodes will start airing in late spring and continue through 2011. (AP)

911 call released

A 911 call released yesterday reveals the frantic efforts by Brittany Murphy’s mother and husband to save the actress’ life on the morning she died. Murphy’s mother, Sharon, is heard crying and telling a fire dispatcher that the actress wasn’t breathing. The dispatcher gives directions to her on how to try to revive Murphy. She relays the information to the actress’s husband, Simon Monjack, who had already started CPR. Brittany Murphy, 32, was found in the bathroom of her Hollywood Hills home Dec. 20 and was pronounced dead at a hospital. Coroner’s officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine how she died. (AP)

Berry gets out of line

Canadian police said it was wrong for one of their officers to whisk Halle Berry, her model boyfriend, and baby through airport security. Police Inspector Jimmy Cacchione said it was the initiative of one officer and not something the department supported. Quebec journalist Marieve Paradis said on her blog yesterday that she spotted Berry, her partner, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, and their child being led to the front of the security line at a Montreal airport Monday, while other passengers waited more than an hour. The officer will not be reprimanded, Cacchione added. (AP)

Comic stabbed self

Self-inflicted stab wounds were what put Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange in a New Jersey hospital last weekend, according to police. Hoboken Police Detective Mark Competello said Lange’s mother found him on the floor of his waterfront home last Saturday. The 42-year-old comedian was unconscious but breathing after stabbing himself with a 13-inch Wolfgang Puck kitchen knife. Doctors cleaned nine abdominal knife wounds and operated. Lange has been released. (AP)
