Tracking the week's ups and downs in the business of entertainment.

UP: Jane Lynch
Generally positive reviews and decent ratings for the Glee star's Emmys turn. In the wake of the Hathaway/Franco Oscar train wreck, Lynch should be proud.

DOWN: The Academy
New Oscar campaign rules include a silly ban on trash-talking movies on Twitter. Good luck enforcing that one.

UP: Chuck Lorre
Emmy wins for stars of The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly; a record 28 million viewers check out Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men; and Charlie Sheen agrees to drop his $100 million lawsuit.

DOWN: Sarah Jessica Parker
I Don't Know How She Does It lands with a thud ($4.4 million), suggesting SJP isn't a draw outside of Sex and the City.

SHOWBIZ STOCKS

UP: Apple (AAPL)
$413.45 (+8.8%)
Shares soaring to an all-time high have made it the most valuable company on the market.

DOWN: Netflix (NFLX)
$130.03 (-38.1%)
It separates streaming from DVDs (calling the latter Qwikster) and confuses analysts and customers alike.
