In the pre-Smash era, the Tony Awards were probably one of two network television celebrations of Broadway greatness. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the other. Now, thanks to NBC, Broadway gets a nod each Monday night. But that still doesn’t lessen my excitement for the Tony Awards, which give us a nice sampling of what’s happening on some of the many stages in New York City. June isn’t that far off, and now it looks like CBS is once again tapping into their own well of talent for this year’s host.
CBS' How I Met Your Mother is still going strong after seven years, proving that clever writing will take you far, a great supporting cast can overcome a bland leading man, and that Ted Mosby's future children have astonishing, perhaps even superhuman, bladder control. However, while the seventh season still hasn't revealed the identity of the mysterious mother, the show is creeping closer to one other milestone: the end of the cast's contracts.
Regis’ recent departure has left morning show Live! With Kelly with just one regular host and a slightly adjusted title. This week, comedian Jerry Seinfeld served as guest-host alongside Ripa, and now there are some new names lined up to fill Regis’ old chair, two of which are returning to the show, and two of which visiting for the first time.
Neil Patrick Harris killed while hosting the Tony's last week. He might just be the heir apparent to Billy Crystal as the premiere awards show host, and hopefully they'll give him a chance at the Oscars (if they don't go with my first pick, Sacha Baron Cohen). Last night, NPH was a guest on Conan, and not only did they have a hilarious and charming interview, but we learned there might be a Conan O'Brien/How I Met Your Mother crossover in the near future.
So You Think You Can Dance is one of the few reality shows that I can actually watch. There's something interesting about watching these talented kids be mentored, struggle out of their comforts zones, and shine within them. One of the drawbacks for me has always been the judges... namely, Mary Murphy. Thankfully they seem to be lining up a bunch of guest judges that might limit the number of times I have to hear that woman scream.
Ah, award show hosting...it never really seems to work out the way everyone wants, does it? Unless your name is Billy Crystal (or, more recently, Neil Patrick Harris), it's usually kind of a let-down and sparks endless whining on the interwebs about the poor job they did (not) glorifying the already overly glorified.
Even as its anchor show Two And A Half Men drowns in uncertainty and tiger blood, CBS, the best run network on television, continues to move forward as if there’s no problem. They’ve officially renewed the always enjoyable How I Met Your Mother, though the episode count may raise a few eyebrows.
Neil Patrick Harris may be back behind the camera directing again. The How I Met Your Mother star previously directed an episode of the CBS comedy and word is, he’s close to signing a deal to direct a comedy pilot for the same network.
So, who the hell is Dr. Stangel? Is he a doppelganger? Is he simply an excuse for NPH to wear a beard?
He followed it up by saying they've recast the part with Ray Wise-- "a fantastic actor who makes any part 'substantial'"-- but didn't back track in the least on calling another actor a d-bag
It’s a day for celebrating for some TV stars and writers today as the nominations for this year’s Emmy’s were announced. While fans of shows like Glee, Mad Men, and Modern Family are most likely reacting positively, here’s what the nominees have been staying.
The stars have aligned and three awesome entities have been brought together for something… even more awesome. Joss Whedon + Neil Patrick Harris + Glee= Triple-Awesome. It’s simple math, folks! Videos and some spoilers ahead!
Fellow Glee fans, we have a double dose of Glee goodness for you to preview this week. In addition to a video clip from this week’s new episode, we also have some images from next week’s episode, which guest stars Neil Patrick Harris. Spoilers ahead!
--dary! After his amazing opening number at The Oscars event he wasn't even hosting, I'm more excited than ever for Neil Patrick Harris' upcoming guest spot on FOX's musical smash Glee. NPH is this generation's singer/dancer/comedian/actor ... something we haven't had since ... Gregory Hines maybe?
What do you get when you combine Joss Whedon, Neil Patrick Harris and Glee? I’m not entirely sure as we haven’t seen such a combination, however I’m pretty sure it would be something along the lines of a perfect storm of awesomeness.
