"From what I see of you, you need a structure." So said Los Angeles County Judge Stephanie Sautner to pro delinquent Lindsay Lohan Wednesday after sentencing the Mean Girls star to 30 days in jail for violating probation in her necklace-theft case. LiLo must then complete her 53 remaining days working at the morgue and attend 18 therapy sessions. If she messes up, Sautner said, she'll be handed a 270-day sentence.

This time, LiLo, 25, has no way to avoid the cold, hard, brutal reality of jail. Said the judge, "You are not to get house arrest or early release." Aha! Then she added, "except for that required by the law." Funny phrase.

It means, as anon sources at the L.A. County Sheriff's Department tell TMZ, that the jails are so overcrowded, LiLo will be in and out in a matter of minutes.

LiLo's more lascivious fans need not fret about the sentence: She plans to complete her Playboy photo shoot before she has to report to jail next week.No foul, no fine

Upon further review, the ruling on the field against CBS has been overturned. The Eye won't be penalized $550,000 because of Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, a federal appeals court in Philadelphia decided on Wednesday.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Federal Communications Commission had abandoned without warning its long-standing policy of tolerating momentary lapses from decency in word or image. "An agency may not apply a policy to penalize conduct that occurred before the policy was announced," wrote Circuit Judge Marjorie Rendell.

Judge Anthony Scirica issued a dissent saying CBS could be fined if the FCC finds it had prior knowledge of the malfunction. The FCC has argued that Jackson's choreographer suggested that something might be up before Justin Timberlake tore off Jackson's bustier, exposing her breast for nine-sixteenths of a second.

PTC outraged over Janet ruling

The Parents Television Council expressed outrage, calling the ruling "judicial stupidity and . . . a sucker-punch to families everywhere."

The Media Access Project, a coalition of producers, writers, and directors that filed an amicus brief in support of CBS, said the ruling is less critical to the industry than it was in 2008.

"It was a big fine for CBS, so that matters, but because the Supreme Court is looking at the constitutionality of the FCC policy itself, this ruling is much less significant than it was . . . the first time they ruled," said Andrew Jay Schwartzman, senior vice president and policy director.

Belieb it: Baby Bieber not baby's dad

Justin Bieber reportedly is none too pleased that a woman identified by E!Online as Mariah Yeater, 20, has filed a paternity suit against the singer, claiming he's the father of her 4-month-old son. Yeater says she and Justin conceived him in a backstage fumble 'n' roll. TMZ cites sources who say Justin denies he had relations with Yeater. His reps call the lawsuit "malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false." Justin on Wednesday tweeted, "Im going to ignore the rumors . . . and focus on what is real. . . . Judge me on the music! Love yall!"

DMX: All in a day's work

Hip-hop maestro DMX was so moved by a fan Tuesday night that he tried his hand at the guy's job, mopping floors at a Waffle House in Greenville, S.C. "I was in a good mood and felt that I would do that for him since it was 4 a.m. and [he] had been working all night," DMX tells TMZ.

Pay to play at 'X Factor'?

James Brown-tinted warbler Dexter Haygood says he wasn't cut from The X Factor because he wasn't good enough to continue in the singing contest, but because he made a deal with the show. Seems Dexter, 49, was dissatisfied with the pop songs he was forced to sing. "[I was] unhappy that I was unable to be a rock artist," he says. "I grew up on rock." So he made a deal with the producers: He'll agree to come back for the season finale if they let him walk.

Show reps say it's all baloney.
