It's possible that this is the cutest rendition of "Jingle Bells" ever recorded.

Jason Segel Explains His Worst Nightmare: Witches Eating His Toes!

18 December 2014 3:55 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's not ghosts, ghouls or boogiemen that keep Jason Segel awake at night - it's witches, and they're hungry for toes. The How I Met Your Mother actor was in Berlin promoting his new children's book, Nightmares!, last month when a reporter for the local tabloid B.Z. asked him to describe his worst recurring nightmare. "Witches were eating my toes!" Segel, 34, replied. The weirdly terrifying dream has apparently haunted Siegel since childhood, and he elaborated on its origins in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in May. "[The witches] didn’t want all of me," he said. "They just wanted my toes. »

How I Met Your Mother: 10 Simple Fixes That Would Have Saved The Ending

18 December 2014 1:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

How I Met Your Mother. The title and central hook for the long-running CBS sitcom turned from tantalising mystery to pleasantly diverting subplot to mind-numbing stupidity over the course of nine seasons.

Viewers met the central five patrons of MacLaren’s Pub in the Pilot, following them through success, failure, break-up, marriage, and, most often, hilarious asides. Framed as a story of how the protagonist Ted Mosby met his children’s mother, an unassuming sitcom grew into a collection of catchphrases, killer callbacks, complex plots, heartbreaking slices of reality, and whirling flights of fancy.

Viewers were ecstatic to finally steal a glimpse at the Mother at the end of an admittedly rocky eighth season, and the ninth season geared up for an incredibly ambitious series of events that would close out the saga of Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin, and Barney in suitably legendary fashion. Alas, several fatal mistakes caused »

The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 11 review: The Clean Room Infiltration

15 December 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This year's Christmas episode from The Big Bang Theory is sweet and sentimental. Here's Caroline's review...

This review contains spoilers.

8.11 The Clean Room Infiltration

Now that big 'I love you' is out of the box, The Big Bang Theory just can't put it back. This episode, a Christmas one where a certain amount of sentimentality is not only allowed by welcomed, left you with little lasting memory other than the warm glow of Sheldon and Amy's growing romance, and just how important it has become to the show's DNA.

The Big Bang Theory usually does really well at holiday episodes, with so much both sadness and familial bonding inherent to occasions such as Christmas and, whereas past holidays consisted of the four guys (and Penny) making the most of their little makeshift unit, now the friendship group has evolved into a proper little family where it doesn't seem at all »

Do We Expect Too Much From TV?

12 December 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Here we are, supposedly living in the new Golden Age of Television, and yet we're still whining all over the Internet about what we're watching.

Just look at this past week. People whined about NBC's live "Peter Pan." Some whined because it wasn't that great, while those who were determined to hate-watch it whined because it wasn't that terrible.

Viewers also whined about this week's "Sons of Anarchy" series finale -- did Jax's final act make sense? Did it provide a satisfying catharsis after seven long seasons? Or was it alternately gripping and frustrating, like the rest of the series had been?

People complained about the campus-rape episode on "Newsroom," the one that showrunner Aaron Sorkin called his finest episode yet. Given this week's controversy over the now in-dispute Rolling Stone article about an alleged rape victim at the University of Virginia, Sunday's "Newsroom" couldn't have been timelier, but a »

How Is Alyson Hannigan 40? See Her Incredible Bikini Body

11 December 2014 10:38 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Alyson Hannigan spent a sweet day at the beach with her family in Hawaii recently! The 40-year-old former How I Met Your Mother star flaunted her figure in a printed bikini as she played with her daughters, Satyana and Keeva Denisof; Alyson snapped sweet photos of the girls as they stood on the beach, and she and her husband, Alexis Denisof, took turns burying the little ones in the sand. Alyson is enjoying some much-deserved time off since How I Met Your Mother ended its nine-season run in April, though it hasn't been confirmed what she's planning to work on next. Earlier this year, she filmed a pilot for the Ben Affleck- and Matt Damon-produced sitcom More Time With Family, but it wasn't picked up by CBS. For now, it looks like Alyson is taking advantage of the downtime by sticking close to home and hanging out with »
