Web Pulse: Jesse James, American Idol, David Mills

Jesse James' rep said he has gone for treatment to help save his marriage to Sandra Bullock.

Here’s a quick glance at the collective consciousness of the Web on Wednesday: 

Jesse James and Sandra Bullock - This couple hasn't been able to stay out of the spotlight since allegations began that Jesse James had several affairs while he was married to Oscar winner Sandra Bullock. Today, the spotlight continues to shine even brighter and people continue to rally support behind Bullock, who is considered to be one of America's sweethearts. Unfortunately, it is still because of the couple's marital problems. Jesse James' rep has told CNN's partners at PEOPLE that he is seeing professional help because he knows his family's future is on the line. Here's hoping with James sidelined (and hidden) that Bullock can get back to the spotlight she deserves - celebrating her unbelievable year and Academy Award while pushing her career further. 

David Mills - Mills, a writer and producer for some of the best TV shows of the past two decades – including "Homicide," "Picket Fences," "ER" and "The Wire" – has died and the Web is paying tribute and remembering some of their favorite moments from his shows. Mills reportedly died of a brain aneurysm Tuesday in New Orleans, where he was a writer and co-producer of the new HBO series "Treme"  The show is scheduled to premiere April 11. 

Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze - Welcome to the competition, boys of "American Idol." In a season that has mostly had to hang all hopes on Bowersox - the one person who until now has shown what an actual artist should sound and perform like - was a game-changer Tuesday. (Read what CNN's Lisa Respers France and EW's Michael Slezak thought of the night.) 

The boys finally made their presence felt. And none more than Lee Dewyze with his performance of "Treat Her Like a Lady." For most of the season he's had a strong base of support, but he often appeared to be nothing more than a Nickleback, every-other-guy-on-YouTube kind of singer. But last night, he performed. Last night he, too, became an artist. And thank goodness because with an episode full of backstage moments which “Idol” has never done (are they losing viewers for the second half to “Lost?”) “Idol” needed him. Let the “Idol” games begin.
