Looking good, Cobie Smulders! Just under six months since giving birth to her and hubby Taran Killam's second child, the 33-year-old How I Met Your Mother actress stepped out in NYC Sunday looking super-slim and sexy with a hint of side boob. The hot Hollywood mama skipped a bra and opted for a simple black romper with sunglasses and sandals for her outing yesterday. The brunette beauty's figure looked very toned and slim, proving she's already shed all of that pregnancy weight. Smulders looked happy and relaxed as she strolled around the Big Apple sans her other half and their kids. Smulders and Killam welcomed their second child back in January. They are already parents to 5-year-old daughter »
Simply put, "How I Met Your Mother" would be nothing without Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). From his man-whoring ways and unapologetic pick-up lines, to his quotable one-liners, impeccable taste in suits, and undying love for Robin "Sparkles" Sherbatsky, he is a legen -- wait for it -- dary part of Himym.
So, in honor of Barney Stinson's remarkable contribution to the TV "womanizer" archetype (and "How I Met Your Mother" as a whole), let's take a look back at some of his most enduring quotes and moments. »

I’ve only been to the Sundance Film Festival once, but every single year I’m on the lookout for which titles from Park City could make the transition to the Academy Award race late in the year. Sundance this year had a handful of offerings that meet such criteria, but none captured my interest as much as The End of the Tour. The movie, from up and coming ace filmmaker James Ponsoldt, captured some of the fest’s best reviews and did in fact create some awards buzz, so today’s debut of a Trailer for the film (which you can see below) has me very excited about its possibilities. If you’re not aware about the flick at all from Sundance, it’s a look at the time spent between Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky and the celebrated late author David Foster Wallace, while the former interviews the latter for an article. »

Sadie Stone might have left Nashville before the end of the season, but Laura Benanti‘s heart is firmly ensconced in the ABC drama’s goings-on.
Take, for instance, her thoughts on Deacon’s sister Beverly, a hard-to-love character who grudgingly donated part of her liver to her ailing brother and who might have died at the end of the season finale.
“That beyotch!” Benanti says, chuckling. “Ugh, she’s so crazy. I hate her!” She calls out the title of Scarlett’s ballad of pain, inspired by Beverly’s borderline abusive mothering. ‘Black Roses! Black Roses!'”

The Big Bang Theory concludes a patchy eighth season with a finale that leaves each member of the gang in a peculiar position...

8.24 The Commitment Determination
In a mixed eighth season of The Big Bang Theory, when even the best shows can be expected to start showing their age, the big achievement has been Sheldon. I don't always think that, as with all the praise, fan-love and awards doled out to the character, he can sometimes be the series' biggest flaw but, in this season at least, he's been a great demonstration of its commitment to evolution.
Sitcoms don't need to progress – it's sometimes detrimental to their popularity for them to change too much – but The Big Bang Theory has never subscribed to the adage that it need not develop its characters. Sheldon, due to his personality as much as the genre he exists within, is »
