Maybe you line up for a concert ticket at 4 a.m. and scream your ears out the entire duration of the show.
Maybe you tape their appearances on MTV and worry that J.C. isn't getting enough rest. Maybe you have your own fan site and debate why Joey doesn't get more solos.
And maybe you pray that Justin dumps Britney after he spots you in the crowd.
And if that's the closest you think you'll ever get to 'N Sync, think again.
The pop group today announced a joint venture with the Microsoft Network, creating an Internet access service called *NSYNC@MSN. The service, available for $21.95 a month after the first month free, will give fans 'N Sync-customized Web browsers, Messenger service and Windows Media players. Users will also receive a special newsletter and exclusive access to video and photo footage.
"We're always trying to be on the cutting edge of things, and we think this is the cutting edge of where we think the Internet is going," said member Chris Kirkpatrick at a news conference in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The group, whose official site is the most popular for a band on the Net and has the largest number of chat communities on MSN, has collaborated with the Internet network to generate ideas for what they call the "ultimate online experience." These ideas include participating in chats, shooting their own digital footage and starting an online radio station that they can manage on the road.
'N Sync member J.C. Chasez told Hollywood.com that the group plans to expand on MTV's "Making the Tour" and "Making the Video" specials.
"There's 365 days in a year and [MTV] was with us for like a week. [But] people are [also] kind of interested to see what goes into making an album," Chasez said. "People never get to really see you in the studio and things like that. ... People are gonna get to see what it's like to be in the studio. See us interact with fans, see how they act, and that's how they'll be able to relate to other people. ... It'll be a great way for them to meet each other."
And while the group, who holds the record for one-week sales of 2.4 million for "No Strings Attached," groans a little about essentially signing their privacy away, they say that they're more than eager to reach out to the fans even if it means as much 'N Sync as possible.
"In other words, we'll be like 'Big Brother: The Tour,'" cracked Kirkpatrick. "You'll have us in your face the whole time ... it's kind of sick."
Fans of 'N Sync -- Kirkpatrick, Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone -- will be able to sign up for the *NSYNC@MSN Internet Access service by going to http://msn.com/nsync or picking up an installation CD at the group's spring concerts. The service will be available only in the United States starting Dec. 1.
Although ABC's giant "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" is making lots of folks richer (including network suits), a couple of people still aren't happy. One, apparently, is host Regis Philbin, who reportedly is making eyes at his contestants' money.
According to today's New York Post, Philbin is asking to be paid $250,000 an episode -- more than double his current $100,000-per-episode haul. With the show said to be adding a fourth night (Wednesdays) to its schedule, that means Philbin would be angling to become a millionaire -- each and every week.
"It's all very friendly. It's just not resolved," an unnamed source tells the newspaper's Page Six gossip column. "Regis is so tied to ABC, he's not going to mess around. It's kind of a family deal. They are in business together."
All this probably doesn't mean much to contestant Bob Bass, who walked away with $32,000 on Thursday but is contesting the question that stumped him.
On the installment, Bass was asked: "Who was the youngest president at his inauguration?" Bass answered John F. Kennedy. He was told the answer was Theodore Roosevelt.
For the record, Kennedy was inaugurated Jan. 20, 1961, at age 43; Roosevelt was sworn in after President McKinley's assassination in 1901 at age 42. Roosevelt didn't get his own official inauguration until March 4, 1905, after he won his own election -- and by then he was 46.
Yes, we looked this all up. And, yes, we're standing by you, Bob.
No comment from ABC on the Regis contract situation -- or the suspicious question.
DOH! It's curtains for a cast member of Fox's "The Simpsons," which in the grand name of February sweeps plans to kill off one of its cast members. And, according to reports, Maude Flanders, wife of Homer's annoying neighbor Ned Flanders, seems to be the front-runner for the job. Other possibilities include school principal Seymour Skinner and Moe the bartender.
"We're in our 11th season, and we're always looking for new ways to shake up the show a little and do something that might open up new story possibilities," Mike Scully, the show's executive producer, told The Associated Press.
While Scully wouldn't confirm Maude's demise, there are clues: First, Maude's voice-over actor, Maggie Roswell, recently left the show. And secondly, the killer episode is titled, "Alone Again, Natura-Diddly" -- an apparently reference to Ned's annoying overuse of the word "diddly."
The episode airs Feb. 13.
TOUCHDOWN! The St. Louis Rams may have emerged the big winner in Sunday's Super Bowl, but ABC didn't do too shabbily, either.
The telecast drew a 43.2 rating and a 62 share, up 7 percent from last year. Overall, more than 130 million viewers watched the big game, making this year's St. Louis-Tennessee Titans rumble the 19th-highest rated Super Bowl and the fifth most-watched telecast in U.S. history.
We have no specific figures, but we're pretty sure beer-and-chips consumption was pretty high Sunday, too.
IT'S LIKE, A DEAL: Peter Mehlman, a former "Seinfeld" writer and the creator of "It's like, you know ..." has signed a three-year deal with DreamWorks Television worth a low eight figures, according to Daily Variety. Mehlman, whose show was recently canceled, will continue to develop and produce series programming. There won't be an "It's like, you know ..." movie, though. "I have a 22-minute personality," Mehlman said.
