TV ratings for Monday, April 21st are in. Here’s a brief rundown: The Blacklist returned from a brief hiatus with a revealing episode that hit a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 11.19 million viewers, which is even with its last episode’s performance. It topped the night in scripted programming. ABC’s Castle also returned even with a 1.8 rating and 9.63 million viewers. CBS’ Monday lineup continues to dip without its How I Met Your Mother lead-in, as 2 Broke Girls dropped two tenths to a series low 2.1 rating and 7.03 million viewers, Friends with Better Lives dipped a tenth to a 1.7 rating and 5.38 million viewers, and Mike & Molly was down two tenths to a 1.9 rating and 7.29 million viewers.

NBC’s The Voice switched to live shows for the first time this cycle on Monday night, but a chunk of viewers shrugged off the next phase of the hit reality competition series.
The Voice was down 15 percent from last week’s episode in the adult demo to mark its lowest Monday performance ever (chart below), yet still once again charted as the night’s top-rated show. The Voice typically tends to dip somewhat when it moves away from the spinny-chairs audition rounds. At least the show provided some high-wire drama when a Top 12 contestant endured a live TV microphone fail. »

Remember when Billy Eichner and Lindsay Lohan destroyed a car because How I Met Your Mother was ending? Eichner is at it again, not destroying cars or hanging out with Lohan, but doing comedy bits with actors. His Parks and Recreation costar Amy Poehler agreed to run around New York City with a Pitbull mask on and shock strangers by revealing that she's not actually Pitbull. My favorite reaction is from a well-dressed man who clearly has no idea who Poehler is but is pleased to talk with her about her day. Take a look before the Parks and Recreation finale airs this Thursday! Billy on the Street: It's Not Pitbull – It's Amy Poehler! from Billy on the Street »

In just four weeks, we’ll find out if Anthony Lapaglia and David Schwimmer will stage comebacks to prime time, or if Flash will really fly for the CW. Chances are it will, but what about those comic book-inspired dramas in the works at Fox and NBC?
Here’s your chance to see all the possibilities, but don’t get your hopes up too high: A majority of these pilots won’t make the cut for fall.

Neil Patrick Harris is getting saucy on Broadway. The How I Met Your Mother star is making a high-profile return to the stage as the title character in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the popular musical about an East German transgender band frontwoman and her botched sex-change operation. On Tuesday, an audience member shouted, "I love you, Neil!" mid-performance, and Harris responded "Who's Neil? I'm not Neil." He then turned to Yitzhak, Hedwig's bandmate and potential love interest played by Lena Hall, and said "Are you Neil? You better not be Neil." And then he

Neil Patrick Harris' Exchange With A Fan
One of the female members of the audience took the opportunity of being so close to Harris to shout out, “I love you, Neil!” Instead of ignoring her, Harris responded to her in character, reported Page Six.
“Who the f--k is Neil?” said Harris, channeling his transgender East German punk rock character Hedwig. “I’m doing something up here, ¬mother--ker!”
Following his response, the audience erupted in cheers for the How I Met Your Mother actor.
Harris Clarifies His Curse Out
After the initial media blitz about the incident, Harris was concerned that some people would get the impression that it was he – not Hedwig – that cursed out the audience member and used Twitter to link to an article that offered some clarification. »
Neil Patrick Harris' recent Broadway performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch is causing a bit of a stir. According to Page Six, after a female admirer yelled out "I love you Neil!," during the show Saturday, Harris shot back, "I'm doing something up here, motherf—cker!" The former How I Met Your Mother star isn't denying that this happened, but he is saying the supposed curse out was taken out of context, tweeting "It seems my Hedwig improvs are making news, but one should have the full story/context." He pointed fans to a Gossip Cop story which said he didn't curse out a fan during his performance, his character did, adding that the »
When Neil Patrick Harris's Broadway performance was interrupted by an overzealous fan, the show went on - but not without a little playful improvisation. The Hedwig and the Angry Inch star had some Nsfw words for the female theatergoer who called out mid-show, "I love you, Neil," according to the New York Post. Without breaking character, he responded: "I'm doing something up here, motherf-----." This earned the How I Met Your Mother alum, 40, a round of applause. But Harris's unscripted words were meant to entertain - not offend. When the audience member made the comment, the in-character actor first replied, »

The finale of a TV show can provoke all sorts of feelings — from devastation to elation, from closure to closed-fist anger — and Lost’s last episode has drawn the full spectrum from different factions of its deeply passionate fan base. Four years after its airing, the epic and polarizing farewell installment of ABC’s obsessed-over mystery drama about a group of plane-crash survivors on a bizarro island still has people talking/debating/clogging message boards. (Should you need a refresher and/or guidance, may we suggest (re)reading Doc Jensen’s insightful recap.) As this is the time of year »

You’ll have to forgive me. I’m a little short of words after watching another one of my favorite shows end for the season. I’ve lost too many of my favorites this past year (Psych, Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother) to even consider the possibility of losing another. However, as you recall, I wrote [&hellip

It’s not easy to stick the landing when it comes to series finales. Just ask fans of Dexter and How I Met Your Mother, who continue to debate the merits of those final hours. Which is why it is that much more remarkable when a show receives universal acclaim for its last chapter. Friday Night Lights is one of those shows. The saga of Eric and Tami Taylor (played to perfection by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) and the Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions ended on Feb. 9, 2011 when DirecTV aired the final episode. Then it ended again when »

Billy Eichner is currently in the middle of the third season of Billy on the Street, and in spite of the show's insane pace, he shows no signs of slowing down (either in terms of his output or the speed of his running). This season he's already destroyed a car with Lindsay Lohan, asked strangers if they would have sex with Paul Rudd (while standing alongside Paul Rudd), mourned the loss of How I Met Your Mother by screaming at people with Neil Patrick Harris, played "Ask a Squirter," and much more. Vulture asked Julie Klausner, who is a friend of Billy's as well as head writer and co-executive producer of Billy on the Street, to reign him in. They discuss the show's evolution, working with Lindsay Lohan, what he had to cut to get Fuse to agree to "Ask a Squirter," Mayim Bialik, why the gay community hasn't embraced »

Charlene Amoia ("How I Met Your Mother," American Reunion) will star in a new horror film for Zoe and Pebbles Productions in association with Mulberry Street Films, LLC, entitled Nefas: The Wicked, a haunted house tale based on true events. Of course!
Filming begins in June just outside of Chicago. The terrifying tale is inspired by true events and is loaded with unforeseen twists. (That's never been seen in a possession movie before, right?)
Julia is a quirky single mother who has left the big city with her teenage daughter, Charlotte, and has taken up residence in the old Miller house. What she is unaware of »

Yesterday, Ed told you that This Week with George Stephanopoulos hired anti-gay pundit Laura Ingraham. Salon‘s Alex Pareene says that’s just the latest step in a rightward lurch for the Sunday morning talk show, one that involves hiring conservative pundits who make for terrible television. But, really, if you want to watch a Sunday morning talk show, you should be watching Up with Steve Kornacki. Under Kornacki, Up is a lot more political, and Kornacki has turned out to be incredibly skilled at asking the tough questions that cut to the truth of the matter.
It’s finally happening. EW says that NBC has scheduled The Maya Rudolph Show for May 19. The variety special will feature appearances by Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Craig Robinson and Chris Parnell with a performance by Jannell Monae. The variety show is a genre that has struggled on TV (oh, »

Friends with Better Lives is the latest sitcom vying for a semi-permanent slot in the CBS Monday night block now that How I Met Your Mother has departed, but so far, it’s not impressing in the ratings.
The second episode last night of the new show starring James Van Der Beek and Brooklyn Decker was down 31 percent from its premiere preview two weeks ago. Meanwhile, CBS’ fellow freshman Mom finished up its first season run with an equally modest number. The network also tried shifting 2 Broke Girls to 8 p.m. to try kick starting the night in the old Himym slot, »

There’s a new star on Broadway – well, “east of Broadway,” as she puts it – and she’s bringing some sex, sass, and serious noise to the Great White Way. She’s Hedwig, the bawdy wordsmith who heads up the punk band The Angry Inch. She’s lewd. She’s rude. And she’s played by a dude.
Stephen Trask and John Cameron Mitchell‘s Hedwig and the Angry Inch – which began previews at the Belasco last week – tells the bittersweet tale of Hansel-nee-Hedwig Schmidt, an East German “slip of a lady-boy” singer brought to the States by the interwoven forces of the U.S. military, a botched gender reassignment surgery, and old-school rock-and-roll. It’s part concert, part confessional, part cabaret. And in the capable hands of director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) and star Neil Patrick Harris, it makes for a rousing, uproarious, and moving night at the theater. »
