Every Friday, Rachel recaps the week’s major TV-related news, announcements and gossip! This week, Carson fills in.
• CBS’s How I Met Your Mother will return for a ninth season, ensuring that the sitcom will definitely overstay its already wavering welcome.
• AMC continues its dismal relationships with showrunners as The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara got the boot. This means that the zombie drama will be getting its third showrunner within four seasons — that’s a lot of creative disconnect.
• ABC shelved the rest of Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn’s canceled 666 Park Avenue until summer and is filling in the extra hour on Sunday with new episodes of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23. »

Rider Strong might not be returning for "Girl Meets World," but that's because he's got bigger plans on the horizon. The "Boy Meets World" star just got engaged to his girlfriend, actress Alexandra Barreto.
"I asked on December 23rd, while her parents were visiting for the holidays," Strong says in a statement to Zap2it. "I took her for a walk under the redwoods on the property where I grew up in Northern California. It was pouring rain, but it didn't look like it was going to stop anytime soon, so I just decided to go for it."
Barreto said yes, but little did she know what she was getting. Strong made the ring he proposed with himself, and as you can see in the image below it was one-of-a-kind.
"I spent weeks making the ring in secret," he says. "I found an old-school jeweler who works out of his »

The latest is the engagement of Boy Meets World alum Rider Strong to his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Barreto. According to E! Online, Rider proposed with a ring he created himself.
Strong and Barreto met on the short-lived 2006 WB comedy Pepper Dennis, in which he played a cameraman and she played the weather girl and nemesis of star Rebecca Romijn. They also had a super-cute bit together in this 2008 Web ad for Barack Obama.

The ‘Boy Meets World’ star popped to the question to his long-time girlfriend the day after Christmas.
Somewhere, Angela Moore is weeping. Rider Strong, who played the eternally perfect-haired Shawn Hunter on Boy Meets World, is officially engaged. Toofab confirms that Rider, 33, proposed to girlfriend Alexandra Barreto on Dec. 26 — with a ring he designed himself! (Now that’s something Shawn Hunter would never do… mostly because he was way too poor.)
According to the site, Alexandra’s custom engagement ring consists of three diamonds and a gold band.
Congrats to the happy couple!

The cast of the hit 90s show "Boy Meets World" grew up together, so it's no surprise that the actors still keep in touch.
The show ran from 1993 to 2000, and news that Disney is making a sequel series, "Girl Meets World," on which Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, has everyone excited.
We're pumped to see what Disney does with the spinoff, and we're slightly giddy after witnessing the show's original cast tweeting at each other. Rider Strong, who played Shawn Hunter and hasn't signed on to the new series, gave the Internet the gift of live tweeting the cast's reunion -- complete with plenty of references to the show.
In a series of tweets he wrote:
