Alyson Hannigan was a guest on The Late Show and David Letterman asked her there are any hints of who the mother is going to be on How I Met Your Mother. She told him she thought the reveal was going to be the final frames of the show, but she was wrong. Then she pretty much told us to watch the show on Monday, but didn’t say why. Since that episode takes place at Barney and Robin’s wedding where Ted meets his future bride, maybe she predicted the ending of the 7th season as compared to the season finale. I don’t know about you, but I just want to meet her already!
Neil Patrick Harris was seen out and about, and it looks like his little Doogie Howser was also out and about. Do you think that the How I Met Your Mother star has something in his pocket or he is just happy to see us?
Last week it was announced that How I Met Your Mother would be back for a final season in the fall and as the show wraps up so will some of the sitcom’s biggest character themes that have played out for almost 9 years. Tonight at 8p on CBS we will most likely say goodbye to one of them, so get your tissues ready for Robin Sparkles’ encore. Although show creator Craig Thomas said she could come back one more time before the show ends.
Tonight we will see Robin Sparkles do the full Alanis Morrisette as she goes from pop star to man hating rocker. It is the darkest she has been. Thomas would neither confirm or deny that Dave Coulier is the reason why she has crossed over to the dark side, but he will definitely be referenced. There was one thing he did confirm about the latest Sparkles’ video, he said “It is completely crazy. It may be the craziest Robin Sparkles yet.” Cobie Smulders who plays her said it is Sparkles catchiest song since Let’s Go to the Mall. After listening to P.S. I Love You, I have to say I agree with her and I am sure you will too.
Thomas also said that, “This episode takes How I Met Your Mother’s Canada fetish to whole new heights.” What did he mean by that? Well several Canadians like Alan Thicke, Jason Priestley, Paul Shaffer, Alex Trebek, K.D. Lang, Steven Page, Geddy Lee and Luc Robitaille are all guest starring in the episode. The only one not partaking in the fun is Crash Test Dummies Brad Roberts, who the HIMYM casting department couldn’t find. But they find the robot, so that is an excellent thing!
So now that Robin Sparkles is going into retirement, will Smulders record an album at some point? She said “I would never find myself in a recording studio at any other time in my life.” Then she added, “I won’t. It’s just not going to happen. I don’t sing that well.” I think she does, but then again who hasn’t wanted to be Robin Sparkles? So tune in tonight to see the new and improved(?) Robin Sparkles.
Then at 8:30p Rules of Engagement is back on CBS. The show that the network’s Yes, Dear proves why it just won’t die. During tonight’s season premiere Liz moves in Audrey and Jeff and she will cause a lot of problems for the couple. But not as bad as the problems Russell will cause for Adam and Jennifer. Did I mention that Russell will come between them in the bedroom? It is something you don’t want to miss, so don’t!
For over a month we have been waiting for CBS to announce that How I Met Your Mother will be back from another season and today they made it official. The whole cast will be back for the sitcom’s ninth and final season. Since it will be the end for the show, everyone promises we will meet the Mother.
Yesterday when I was on a conference call with EP Craig Thomas and Cobie Smulders to talk about this Monday’s (most likely final) episode with Robin Sparkles that airs at 8p, I asked if they know when we will meet the mother. At first the show creator said this week and then quickly admitted that that was a (sick) joke. He then promised, “It will happen before the series ends.” And then he reiterated the point by saying, “It’s going to happen, I swear!” Then he asked Robin for a comment and she said “It’s just not any time really soon.” To which he responded equally as coyly by saying it could be soon or it could be later.
So with the countdown upon us, we know it will happen in the next 30 episodes. Either that or us longtime fans will be calling everyone involved with the show a mother, followed by a second word…
Oh and since we can’t even get them to tell us when it will happen, they are also not telling us who it could be. So if you could cast the Mother, who would you want to star in the role? I say Bob Saget in drag because it is about time his face made an appearance on the show!
Just when you thought that How I Met Your Mother would be a goner, comes word from Deadline that the whole cast has signed on for a ninth season. There had been rumors that most of the cast was ready to move on especially Jason Segel, but today he decided to give in and re-up for another season. And all I have to say to that is damn you Jason Segel, damn you to hell.
I loved How I Met Your Mother for the first few seasons and couldn’t wait for the next episode, but then around season 4 the show went to sh!t and never got back that original feel. I have been watching since week 1 and now I wonder why I am still making myself give up a half hour week to the CBS show. I don’t care who the mother is at this point, just that Ted finds her and shuts the f*ck up. Seriously the show has turned more into the Barney and Robin love story then Ted’s and that defeats the whole purpose of the show.
Yes CBS wants to bring it back. Yes the cast want it come back. But does it have to? Us fans want it put out of our misery because we all long for the days of Robin Sparkles going to the mall and Barney losing the Slap Bet. Now we just all want to reach into our screens and slap them to shut the f*ck up.
So in other words, all I want for Christmas is for this show to end this season. And I am sure I am not alone.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka dressed their two year old twins and themselves up as some of he iconic characters from The Wizard of Oz for Halloween and can that picture be any more awwwwdorable? Seriously how sweet are the two dads with Gideon Scott and Harper Grace? Seriously I got more cavities looking at that picture than I did from all of the candy I stole from my friends’ kid yesterday.
How I Met Your Mother is back on CBS tonight at 8p for what is looking like it will be the final season and it starts off with Robin and Barney’s wedding. Since that is the future we have to go back to the present and find out how that came about. Barney is still with Quinn and he shares the happy engagement news with his friends Robin, and exhausted new parents Lily and Marshall. Since Quinn doesn’t know that Barney dated Robin, he asks everyone to keep it a secret but will they? Meanwhile Ted is with Victoria who left her wedding to be with him. Knowing what it is like to be left at the alter, he convinces her to go back to the Church and tell her now-ex-fiance’ that she left him. Is she the mother? All I will tell you is that at the end of the episode we will see her. So you have to tune in for that reveal.
Then at 8:30p Will and Grace’s David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are back with a new sitcom called Partners that is partially based on their story. Joe (David Krumholtz) and Louis (Michael Urie) have been best friends since they were kids and now they are business partners in an architecture firm. Joe is straight and he has been dating Ali (Sophia Bush) for over a year and things are starting to get serious for them. Louis is living with his partner Wyatt (Brandon Routh) and he screws things up all the time by being Louis. But it isn’t only his own life he keeps messing up, he also screws up everyone else’s. Thankfully Joe is there to clean up his messes even when it his life that his BFF has completely destroyed. They are the Yin to the other one’s Yang and by them being complete opposites that is what makes this show so funny. Then you throw in the beautiful Sophia Bush (who is really good at comedy) and the handsome Brandon Routh (who gets really emotional in next week’s episode) and you have the makings for a hit that in the perfect meat in the HIMYM and Two Broke Girls sandwich.
Finally at 10p Hawaii Five-0 ends the night with an episode that is so fantastic it feels more like a 2-hour action movie than a 1-hour drama.
The show picks up exactly where it left off with McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) opening the door and us seeing who is on the other side of it. Who that person is will change him forever and answer questions he never thought he would get the answers to.
Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) does everything he can to save his wife, but will it be too late:? Is she the one that dies or is it his cousin Koho (Grace Park)? Or did both of them miraculously survive? That you will have to tune in to see, but I will tell you revenge in on his mind no matter the outcome. Because of that we will see him change into a different person tonight.
And as interesting and game changing as our leads’ stories are, the best part of the episode comes with the most original prisoner escape you have ever seen/will ever see. It is so breathtaking and brilliant that you just have to watch it take place and wonder how the hell they came up with that.
There is so much more I want to tell you about that prisoner break because it is so juicy, but it would be a major spoiler point that would take away from the awesomeness of tonight’s action-packed thrilling episode that barely gives you a second to breathe. Seriously I can’t remember the last time I was more blown away by an episode than I was by tonight’s Hawaii Five-0, so make sure to watch it even if it is the first time you are checking out the show.
Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof are the proud parents of a second daughter. According to Us Weekly Keeva Jane was born May 23 and the couple have been able to somehow keep her birth a secret for almost a month. No word how big sister Satyana, 3 feels about the new addition to their family, but I am sure she is loving it.
