Alyson Hannigan is returning to CBS … as a guest.
Hannigan, who portrayed Lily Aldrin on the long-running CBS show, will play Pam — Marjorie (Laurie Metcalf) and Arthur’s (Jack McGee) broken-hearted tenant. She’s invited to join the family for Christmas Eve festivities, which end up being more than she bargained for when the Boston clan gets boisterous and competitive during their annual gift exchange.
The Christmas episode airs December 18.

Gosselaar tells TVLine he was drawn to this dual role for the complexity of the characters, adding that Jared is “easier” to play because Paul presents more of a challenge; he’s “darker” and Gosselaar hasn’t quite “figured him out yet.”
And speaking of a challenge, Gosselaar recently filmed a scene for his third episode which finds the brothers talking face to face, forcing him to act opposite, »

When Craig Thomas and Carter Bays first came up with How I Met Your Mother they couldn’t have imagined it would run for a whopping nine seasons. The idea of father sitting his kids down to tell the story of how he met his wife just doesn’t appear to have the legs to lead to a 208 episode run, and yet, thanks to creative writing and a knock-out cast, that’s exactly what happened.
The recent finale proved rather divisive, but that can’t take away from the overall quality of the series’ run. After all, as much as it was motivated by Ted’s love life, what the show as really about was friendship, seeing the gang mature over a nine-year period; Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) got married and started a family; Robin (Cobie Smulders) realised there was more to life than having a »

The Simpsons is known for having had great guest stars over the years, continually snagging some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry (and elsewhere) and having them turn up on the show both as cameos and at times as actual characters.
In the early years you had Kelsey Grammer, Michael Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, James Earl Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Phil Hartman, George Takei, Ringo Starr, Jon Lovitz, and many others. There were musical guests like The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Aerosmith, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Sonic Youth. In more recent seasons guest stars have included Daniel Radcliffe, Max Von Sydow, Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen, Patrick Stewart, Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Gordon Ramsay, Neil Gaiman, Michael Cera, Jeremy Irons, Cheech and Chong, Alyson Hannigan, Jodie Foster, Sacha Baron Cohen and, again, many others.
Many, many others.
There have literally been hundreds of guest stars on The Simpsons over the years, »

After countless headlines, we’ve recently seen Shonda Rhimes take the heat for the seriously sexual gay scenes in her show How To Get Away With Murder. In return, she tells everyone to stick it where the sun don’t shine. As she rightfully should. Because of shows like Orange Is the New Black and entertainment pioneers like Rhimes, Lgbt couples on television have finally moved further away from taboo and closer to the norm. At the end of the day, love is love and we’re focusing on the lady loves who prove just that.
On TV, there has been a lesbian marriage on Grey’s Anatomy (again, thanks to Rhimes), short flings such as on The O.C. and supernatural love back in the day of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. During Buffy’s run, Alyson Hannigan said her character’s relationship was “[n]ot about being controversial or making a statement. »

"Grimm" is about to return for its 4th Season, and if you watch the beloved fantasy series you're probably chomping at the bit to find out what's gonna go down after a very intense, drama-filled Season 3 finale.
Moviefone had the chance to chat with one of the show's stars, Bitsie Tulloch, who plays veterinarian Juliette Silverton, girlfriend to detective and "Grimm" Nick Burkhardt. Bitsie opened up about a "darker" Season 4 (there will be uber-scary new wesen creatures...), the future of Nick and Juliette, and what it will be like now that Nick has (gasp!) lost his supernatural powers.
Moviefone: Fans are eagerly awaiting new "Grimm" after last season's crazy finale. What can you reveal about Season 4?
Bitsie Tulloch: Well, there were 8,000 cliffhangers in the season finale for »

Translating movies and television for international markets can be a tricky business, as we discovered last year when we assembled this collection of 20 titles that got lost in translation.
But if you want to descend to a whole new level of weirdness, you need to look beyond the official channels. Whether it's a pirated disc being hawked in the street or a bona fide copy resold in unofficial packaging, these are products where the normal quality standards simply do not apply.
Below we've rounded up 11 of the world's most bizarre bootleg DVD covers, featuring dodgy Photoshopping, garbled Babelfish-style synopses, and entire actors being accidentally dropped in from other movies or TV shows.
God, True Detective was a great show. Remember that episode where Rust and Marty go to Vegas and live it up in faux-Paris before narrowly escaping an exploding building on the back of a phoenix?
All your favorite shows are coming back to life! Well, not all your favorites. Despite the recent revivals of The Comeback, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development and Veronica Mars, there are still some beloved shows that are still kicking around just asking to be brought back. And others that should just really be left in the pop culture pantheon of great TV shows that only live on via Netflix, DVD or syndication. Below, we broke down why your favorite show should return from the dead or why they should remain a fond memory. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) Starred: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz, Seth Green, James »
The guest list for Hattie McDermott's third birthday bash was one very mixed bag.Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott celebrated their daughter's special day on Sunday with a fairy-themed party filled with wings, pinatas, face paint and a couple random celebrities. Joining the fam for the big bash was Tori's once-estranged mother Candy Spelling, former child star Tatum O'Neal, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum Alyson Hannigan and her children and, strangest of all, Dean's ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.While Dean and Mary Jo do have a child together, that's not who the party was for ... so her appearance strikes us as extremely odd.Tori reportedly invited her husband's ex to the event herself, after the two filmed an intense and extremely awkward lunch conversation for the season season "True Tori," Spelling's reality show. In a preview clip for the new season, Tori said she hadn't spoken face to »

Compared to Beer Bad, the last wretched instalment of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, it's inevitable that Wild At Heart will seem like a work of genius in comparison. Established writer Marti Noxon is putting pen to paper. Spike's back for a nanosecond. And most importantly, it's the last episode to feature Oz as a regular. So what can possibly go wrong?
Well, on the surface, not a lot – providing you don't think about it too much. If you're prone to blubbing like Ian Beale, then it's a fair bet you'll be weeping buckets by the time that Oz has driven off in his van into a life of meditation and mystical charms. The story goes that Seth Green wanted to leave the show to pursue a film career – so the writers of Buffy had to find a credible reason for breaking up one of the show's most enduring couples, Willow and Oz. »
How I Met Your Mother‘s series finale may have been extremely divisive among viewers, but the cast of the CBS comedy has nothing but kind words about the ending and the “narrative geniuses” who were at the show’s helm.

Co-creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays are brilliant at “withholding information until it’s time for that information to come forward, at which point it changes everything,” star Josh Radnor says in TVLine’s exclusive video from Tuesday’s Season 9 and Complete Series DVD release.

How I Met Your Mother wrapped up after nine seasons last May with a finale that left the majority of fans disappointed. In the DVD set, show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas show fans what could have been with the finale’s alternate ending.
'How I Met Your Mother' Alternate Ending
In How I Met Your Mother’s finale, it’s revealed that “The Mother” aka Tracy, played by Cristin Milioti, dies. Her death had been alluded two in a pair of previous episodes, though many had held out hope that the show had not been built around a character who was to die from the beginning of the narration.
Furthermore, Milioti made Tracy an incredibly likeable character, one who made perfect sense for Josh Radnor’s Ted. Not only having Tracy die, but having Ted and Robin reunite several years later was the second blow to »
If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif? A two-hour block of family-friendly comedies that tried to make it seem fun staying in on Friday nights? It officially debuted 25 years ago this month - on Sept. 22, 1989, with a lineup that included Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House and Just the Ten of Us. And notably, it debuted four years before that other landmark '90s TV block, Must See TV. The early promos are a trip, as they're both introducing the »

'Scuse us, 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, we're really happy that you have Taylor Swift performing her new single and Nicki Minaj probably oh-so-subtly showing off her booty, and we're going to let you finish but uh… The MTV VMAs from the late '90s and early 2000s were the best VMAs of all time. Of all time. (See what we did there? We made a very dated Vma joke while talking about the VMAs. You're welcome). Why were the Video Music Awards so good from 1998 to 2002? The proof is in the pudding. Well, the proof is in the photos, but we bet if there were some pudding around the proof would be in that, too: 1. Alyson Hannigan and Sarah Michelle Gellar (1998) It's »
Entertainment Weekly rounded up a bunch of celebrities — from Alyson Hannigan to the cast of Parks and Recreation — for a PSA warning viewers of the dangers of binge-watching. Maybe you're like Adam Scott, who brags, "I don't have a TV. I just read and look out the window." Anyway, the celebs offer some dos and don'ts for how to binge-watch in a responsible manner. Do: Drink a lot of fluids. Don't: Binge-watch Breaking Bad and then switch to True Detective. Do: Take breaks if you're single. Don't: Binge-watch CNN because it will never end. »
