Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the travel-sized sexpot star of MTV's icky reality show "Jersey Shore," confirms that she's pregnant and engaged. [Vulture]

• Congress won't have Dennis Kucinich to kick around for much longer, as the liberal Congressman lost a primary fight to another incumbent Democrat, Rep. Marcy Kaptur, in last night's Ohio primary. [The Huffington Post]

• With "The Muppets" heading to DVD on March 20, it's the return of the Muppet-filled trailer parody -- this time, spoofing "The Hunger Games." [Splitsider]
