TV Ratings: 'Two and a Half Men' Finale Swells, 'Odd Couple' Starts Strong

20 February 2015 8:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Two and a Half Men signed off on a high note Thursday night, albeit shy of the ratings highs it hit in its heyday. With an average 3.1 rating among adults 18-49, the show was up by almost 50 percent from the week prior — and at its best showing in the key demo since May 2013. Total viewership also swelled, up 41 percent to 13.2 million — many of them likely tuning in to see if former star Charlie Sheen would return. Still, the Chuck Lorre comedy lacked the momentum that How I Met Your Mother had when

Five Reasons Neil Patrick Harris Will Totally Kill It as Oscars Host

20 February 2015 12:42 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Step aside, Ellen DeGeneres. It’s officially Neil Patrick Harris’ turn to take over the Oscars — and perfectly nail it. The How I Met Your Mother star has already proved he’s fully capable of hosting an award show; what’s more, with his Tony-winning credentials, he’s down to sing, dance, cuss, and do whatever else it takes to keep an audience captivated. But, if you’re not already convinced he’ll do a superb job, then here’s five reasons why you should be stoked to watch Nph do his [...] »

Memories From the Set: Odd Couple's Lindsay Sloane Talks Sabrina, Wonder Years, Himym and More

18 February 2015 2:14 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After nearly 25 years on television, The Odd Couple star Lindsay Sloane is accustomed to playing the neurotic type. What she’ll never get used to is the guest stints that find her fake-sexing it up with an actor she barely knows, like her time working with Mark Duplass on The League.

“I remember meeting Mark in the makeup trailer,” she tells TVLine. “Cut to three hours later, and I’m in lingerie in bed with him, playing this girl who’s crushing his penis.” Ouch!

10 Films You Didn’t Realise Buffyverse Actors Were In

18 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EuropaCorp

It has now been 11 years since the Buffyverse came to an end (as far as its television shows were concerned, at least). Buffy The Vampire Slayer saw its final episode aired in 2003, while Angel saw its last episode air one year later – and fans of the shows still miss them both to this day.

One of the key reasons behind the popularity of the two shows was undoubtedly the characters. A talented group of regular cast members and supporting actors brought to life some of the weirdest, wackiest, funniest and most interesting characters anybody could ever wish for in a television series and many of them have gone on to obtain further success in Hollywood (and some of them had actually already made their mark in the world of film).

Neil Patrick Harris Fears He Can't Top Ellen DeGeneres' Epic Oscars Selfie

18 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Neil Patrick Harris is gearing up to host the 87th Academy Awards on Sunday, but admits to former 2014 Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres that she's a tough act to follow thanks to her epic, star-studded selfie.

"Here's my biggest concern," the former How I Met Your Mother star admits to Ellen on her Wednesday show. "Your selfie shot was the most spectacular, successful thing."

Further expressing his fears that he can't one-up the pic, he adds, "Above my head now. How do you try to beat the selfie that broke the internet?"

Transformation Tuesday: Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris has come a long way since putting on his scrubs for Doogie Howser, M.D. — now he’s putting on his tux to host the 87th Annual Academy Awards this Sunday! Seldom do child actors make it big (and sane) as adults, but Nph has been proving that old adage wrong for years.His portrayal of Barney on How I Met Your Mother was always well-suited and legendary. His comedic roles in movies like the Harold & Kumar series and startling, but serious turns in Gone Girl prove that Harris has range.

No matter if he’s suiting up as Barney or rocking a pair of six inch platform boots for Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Neil always looks incredible. While some worried about his dramatic weight loss for Hedwig, no one could say he wasn’t fully committed to his character. His »

Neil Patrick Harris teases hosting Oscars: 'Joke-writing is a long process'

16 February 2015 9:24 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Neil Patrick Harris has teased his Oscars hosting duties in a new Academy Awards video.

The How I Met Your Mother actor reveals how he has watched past ceremonies to find ways of keeping the show fresh and exciting for audience members and viewers at home.

"It's a shockingly long process of writing a single joke," Harris says. "Because you have to say it. It doesn't sound right, you change one verb or you change one parenthetical and see if it's better with a bigger set up. All for a 'I showed my weiner in Gone Girl' joke."

The video also shows behind-the-scenes footage from Harris's rehearsals, while he hints at some magical skits during the show as well.

"We're actually going to be using people in interesting ways," Harris said. "There is going to be a musical number at some point in the show. I'm a magician, so I »

Your Oscar host, Neil Patrick Harris

16 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Every joke, every introduction, every song and dance number in every awards show he’s hosted so far; they’ve all led to this moment.

Neil Patrick Harris will host this year’s Oscars telecast, a crowning achievement for the actor who’s already hosted four Tony Awards and two Emmy Awards (and let’s not forget those Spike Video Game Awards and the TV Land Awards).

Landing an Oscars host is always difficult — an October 2014 issue of The Hollywood Reporter claimed that Chris Rock,

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and last year’s host Ellen DeGeneres all turned the gig down. Which is why nabbing Harris makes sense; the dude wants the job.

So how did he get to this Hollywood mountaintop?

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' edges out 'Boyhood' at 2015 Writers Guild Awards

14 February 2015 7:44 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) handed out top film honors to the screenplays of "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "The Imitation Game" Saturday night. On the television side, "Louie" and "True Detective" were favorites, winning two prizes each. Damien Chazelle's "Whiplash" competed in the original category at the WGA Awards, while the Academy's Writers Branch, in a rare move outside of guild designation, deemed it adapted due to the fact that a scene from the feature script was the basis of a short film that screened at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. So if "The Imitation Game" is to go on to Oscar glory, it will have to compete with Chazelle's popular film for the first time this season at the Feb. 22 Academy Awards ceremony. Additionally, presumed Best Picture frontrunner "Birdman" was not eligible for WGA (making it still significant competition with "Grand Budapest" in the original category), nor was "The Theory of Everything, »

‘Grand Budapest Hotel,’ ‘True Detective’ Top WGA Awards

14 February 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.

HBO’s “True Detective” and FX’s “Louie” each took a pair of TV trophies.

“Alan Turing is the person for who we made this film,” Moore said in his acceptance speech at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. “It is on the shoulders of his genius that we made this film.”

Anderson, who shares story credit with Hugo Guiness, recalled in his acceptance speech that it was appropriate to receive the award in Century City since he had worked with longtime collaborator Owen Wilson at a nearby motel many years ago.

“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.

Watch Neil Patrick Harris Do Adorable Impressions of His Twins Gideon Scott & Harper Grace

12 February 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Leave it to Neil Patrick Harris to make his already super-cute four-year-old twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace appear even more adorable.

The 41-year-old former How I Met Your Mother star is appearing on Thursday's episode of Inside the Actors Studio, in which he dishes on the different personalities of both Gideon and Harper. The fraternal twins were born via surrogate, with each child being a biological match to either Harris or Burtka.

"There was a separate egg donor who donated anonymously even though we had vetted her," Harris explains to host James Lipton.

"We were hoping that one would take, and two took," Burtka adds, noting that each of them is a father to one of the children.

The 1982 version of Annie, for one. "My interest in musicals started with Annie," the How I Met Your Mother and Gone Girl actor says. »

Review: NBC's 'The Slap' wants to provoke, but mostly irritates

11 February 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When NBC announced plans for "The Slap," it sounded like a joke, or possibly a James Franco art installation. A miniseries revolving around a man who slaps someone else's child at a backyard barbecue? That's the whole thing? Even upon learning that it was based on an Australian miniseries, which was in turn adapted from a book, it was hard to imagine that this was an actual thing the NBC television network was trying in the year 2015. On-air promos for the miniseries (which debuts tomorrow night at 8) play more like "SNL" parodies than ads for a real show. Well, I am here to tell you that "The Slap" is not a joke. It is humorless, pretentious, a waste of a number of good performances, and about as subtle as its title action, but it is also very real. Adapted from the Aussie miniseries by playwright and "Brothers & Sisters" creator Jon Robin Baitz, »

Neil Patrick Harris' education regret

10 February 2015 10:46 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Neil Patrick Harris regrets not going to college. The 'How I Met Your Mother' star, who is set to host the Oscars later this month, admits he wishes he had gotten an education despite his success in Hollywood. Asked about his greatest regret, he said: ''Not going to college - it'd have made me smarter and stuff.'' Meanwhile, the 41-year-old actor - who has four-year-old twins Harper and Gideon with his husband, David Burtka - has revealed his relationship is his number one priority in life, not his career. He told Vanity Fair magazine: ''After more than 10 years, he still surprises me with his depth and makes me laugh. When he is happy my entire world is alive. ''David threw me a week-long scavenger hunt for my 40th birthday - it took me across the country. Best thing that has ever... no, could ever happen to me. »
