Arnold Schwarzenegger, 60 Minutes


It appears that Arnold Schwarzenegger's TMI book tour didn't really do much to, well, sell books.

The erstwhile Governator's heavily hyped autobiography, Total Recall—which he relentlessly hawked with a publicity-clawing media blitz that put movie junkets to shame—sold a disappointing 21,000 copies in its first week, per The Hollywood Reporter.

The sales are telling, considering the 65-year-old did everything from giving salacious tidbits about illicit sex with his baby-mama mistress to revealing that he had officiated gay marriages.

To put his book's sales in perspective, the year's top nonfiction debut, the Osama Bin Laden-themed No Easy Day, sold 254,000 copies its first week.

Guess this means it's hasta la vista, baby, to the Governator's bid for a best-seller.

Here's what else went down last night:

Presidential Showdown, the Sequel: After a sleepy showing the first time around, President Barack Obama perked up enough to deflect Mitt Romney's throwdowns. Celebs certainly had a lot to say.

A Binder's Worth of Binder Memes: Speaking of the debate, Romney's catchphrase du jour, "binders full of women," quickly went viral.

A New Dawn for Robsten: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were spotted together for the third time in as many days as reports of their reconciliation came to light.

Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both wore bright pink to the second debate

Taking a Tumble: Bye-bye, Bristol Palin: The Dancing With the Stars hopeful was booted off the show.

Bachelorette Curse Strikes Again: Jef Holm and Emily Maynard confirmed rampant speculation that they've called it quits.

Lost With the Law: Matthew Fox opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about his DUI arrest and allegedly punching a woman last year.

True Crime: Pulp Fiction theme-song writer Dick Dale's wife and son were arrested for allegedly blowing up a propane tank.
