"Great congratulations to David Furnish & Elton John on the birth of their son, Zachary!" the actor tweeted. "Can't wait for play dates in the south of France." Like Harris and his partner, David Burtka, John and Furnish welcomed their bundle of joy via surrogate. But why the name Zachary? "A friend gave us a book of baby names, and we started to flick through it, but we have always loved the name Zachary and kept coming back to it," the couple told Us. "In the end, we looked at each other, and put the book back on the shelf, and said, »

It's double diaper duty and sleepless nights for How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and actor/chef David Burtka - but the couple wouldn't have it any other way. "Everyone says that it's such a blur after it happens," says Harris of becoming parents to fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, born Oct. 12 via surrogate.

You could never accuse "How I Met Your Mother" of being particularly forthcoming with its preview images.
Yes, Nph gets a double billing, playing Barney and "Dr. Stangel." But is this a joke or another doppelganger? Either way, it's a step in the right direction for the pregnancy-challenged couple.
The real question at this point is which of the two is causing the hold up. Judging by facial expressions, we're going with Lily. Or perhaps this is just Jason Segel breaking character at the sight of Nph in Steven Keaton beard:
This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Archer (Season 1) Much like its FX counterpart, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer is a show about horrible people doing horrible things. Premised as a '60s spy thriller spoof, the series adopts the same irreverent brand of humor we've come to expect from creator Adam Reed (Frisky Dingo, Sealab 2021), thrusting our deviant band of self-obsessed special agents through the ringer as they spout fiercely clever/cleverly stupid insults at one another and zanily stumble through mission after mission—with varying degrees of blood loss. It's everything loyal fans like myself came to love about Frisky Dingo, just with a tad bit more (very welcome) narrative structure. If you aren't watching it, you should be. Available on Blu-ray? »

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating “aggressively unattractive” classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra, inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find »

Jason Segel is one of the hottest comedic stars in film and television today. Long before starring in the hit CBS series, How I Met Your Mother, and his roles in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Knocked Up, Segel starred in two short lived television series, NBC’s “Freaks and Geeks” (co-starring at the time unknown actors James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Linda Cardellini), and Fox’s ”Undeclared” (co-starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel). What do these shows have in common? They were created by director/writer Judd Apatow, who is behind movie hits including Knocked Up, The 40 Year Old Virgin, as well as other films which Segel has starred in. Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared were great shows that never seemed to catch on with audiences. Segel told us that when both television shows were canceled, Apatow made it his mission to prove the networks made the »
Neil said of David in an interview earlier this year: “I’m his forever protector, and I’m happiest when he’s happy.”
Together for six years, they so clearly adore each other which is evident in just about every photo you see of these two actors – especially in photos from David’s surprise 35th birthday party in New York City earlier this year.
So many Greg In Hollywood readers responded to photos from that night that I did a separate post on their reactions alone. This is a couple that really touches a cord.
Gih reader Sharon summed it up for many when she commented: “I have so much respect for them. I »

CBS has set its midseason schedule, and since the network is pretty healthy this season it's more about tweaks than a radical makeover.
The Eye will debut three new scripted shows and Paula Abdul's competition series "Live to Dance" in the first few months of 2011. It's also moving a couple of its current shows around, giving "Blue Bloods" a four-week tryout on Wednesday nights and sending "The Defenders" to Fridays to fill the spot being vacated by "Medium."
The new scripted shows are "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior," a spinoff of "Criminal Minds" that will air after its parent show on Wednesday nights; comedy "Mad Love," which slides into the post-"How I Met Your Mother" slot on Mondays in late February; and "Chaos," a drama about CIA officers that will debut on Fridays in April. "Live to Dance" premieres Tuesday, Jan. 4, the moves to Wednesdays the following night, holding »
CBS is one of the last networks to announce its midseason schedule and it turns out it contains a few shake-ups. The ending of Medium and some schedule changes will make way for a few new midseason shows.
The first big change is the time-slot switch between Blue Bloods and The Defenders. Blue Bloods had been averaging a respectable 12 million viewers on Friday nights, but CBS has decided to move it into the 10:00 p.m. spot on Wednesday, previously held by The Defenders. Curiously, though, Blue Bloods will only remain on Wednesday nights for 4 consecutive weeks. The Defenders, in turn, will be moving to 8:00 p.m. on Friday nights and is expected to remain on Friday nights for the remainder of the season.
CBS has made a few changes to its midseason schedule, throwing the Criminal Minds spin-off into the mix and shifting around a couple new dramas.
