'How I Met Your Mother': Lily And Marshall Search For A Nanny

October 9th, 2012 10:50am EDT
robin, lily, and marshall
How I Met Your Mother returned last night for the second episode of what is looking increasingly likely to be the final season of the show. Co-creator Craig Thomas told TV Guide, "We wanted the season premiere to feel momentous because this could be the beginning of the last chapter. There are negotiations happening, but I don't know how that's gonna go and I don't know when I'll know if there'll be a Season 9. Carter [Bays] and I are really writing the season as if it's the last season and this is how we would start it." Last week’s premiere gave us the big reveal that Ted would meet hi...

Martin Short Is 'The Burning Beekeeper' On New 'HIMYM'

How I Met Your Mother returned with a new episode last night, kicking off sweeps month for CBS. Expectations are running high, with HIMYM in its highest ratings season ever. Things got a little more crowded on Monday nights as the second season of The Voice moved into its new timeslot across the dial on NBC. The Peacock went for the bold move of premiering the singing reality competition right after Super Bowl XLVI, and over 40 million people stuck around after the game to watch. It will certainly be one of the more interesting ratings showdowns of the season.

Last night’s episode, “Th...

New 'HIMYM' - Are You Dating Your Mom?

In Monday’s all-new HIMYM, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) realizes that his new girlfriend Nora (Nazanin Boniadi) is a lot like his mother. Will it be a deal breaker?

Last week Robin’s (Cobie Smulders) new boyfriend Kevin (Kal Penn), who is a therapist, pointed out that the group had a lot of issues. These included Ted (Josh Radnor) and Marshall’s separation anxiety, Robin’s trust issues, Barney’s pathological lying and denial, and the whole group’s generally abnormal social behavior. My apologies to my thousands of fans for not getting around to doing a recap for last week’s episode (del...

'Saturday Night Live': Post-Election

December 2nd, 2008 10:04am EST
Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live is not funny. Some of the skits are funny, some, but the show as a whole is not. The former meter of comedic excellence has not so much stepped away from the glory days of John Belushi and Chevy Chase as much as it has dove. Even Cheri Oteri, whose career is on the wane since her days cheerleading alongside Will Ferrell, chose to cameo on the soon-to-be-cancelled Boston Legal as opposed to her alma mater.

Yes, the election has returned SNL to brief heights of hilarity. But, what does it mean when the most memorable skits of the new season featured two former cast m...

The Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows Of The 90s

May 2nd, 2008 9:43am EDT
Newsradio
The 1990s was the beginning of the end for network television. Program offerings grew rapidly in the last decade of the 20th century. Soon it became commonplace for a person to have 50-60 channels on their home set, paving the way for the present-day satellite and digital cable packages for 1,000 channels or more.

The 90s was the last decade that network bosses could depend on massive ratings from a nearly captive audience bereft of choices. There were certainly plenty of cable shows, but they barely made a dent in the numbers enjoyed by the networks at the time.

It was not unco...
