Josh Radnor and Cristin Milioti
This week, several How I Met Your Mother fans were outraged over the series finale, so one viewer decided to give it a more palatable alternate ending. Hulu celebrated April Fool's Day by launching the spin-off series "In the Kitchen with Hannibal," and CollegeHumor unveiled a somewhat misinformed Game of Thrones catch-up video. Plus, Piers Morgan signed off of his CNN show for good, and Samuel L. Jackson gave a Boy Meets World-themed slam poetry performance. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Our top moments of the week:
13. Best Hail Mary: After a father of three perishes while laying on top of his children to save them from a blaze on Chicago Fire, the man's wife sues the firehouse for wrongful death. During a deposition, the father's sacrifice affects Casey deeply, and he tells the widow that "what your husband did ... was the bravest thing I've ever seen." The woman starts to cry, but thankfully, she also decides to drop the lawsuit. A small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

Drew Carey, Candace Cameron Bure, and Olympic gold medalists Charlie Whiteand Meryl Davis are among the celebrities who are heading to the ballroom for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars.
The Yoda Chorincles
The Force will be strong in Times Square this week. To celebrate the premiere of the new Cartoon Network special LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, LEGO and Lucasfilm have teamed up to bring a massive recreation of a X-wing Starfighter to New York City.
Made of 5,335,200 LEGO bricks, the model — based on the iconic ship Luke Skywalker & Co. fly in the Star Wars movies — was transported to the United States from the LEGO Model Shop in Kladno, Czech Republic, where it was constructed by a team of 32 builders. It is an exact replica — at 42 times the size — of the LEGO Star Wars set No. 9493. It will be parked in Times Square Thursday through Saturday, May 23-25.
Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher
Harrison Ford has already said he's interested in reprising his role as Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, and now his Star Wars co-stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are looking to revive their characters Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia as well, according to reports.
Showtime's competitive juices aren't limited to the arena of scripted entertainment. Now the pay cable network is challenging HBO's Real Sports franchise by turning to masters of long-form narrative with the launch of 60 Minutes Sports (10/9c). Among the segments in Wednesday's premiere: a closer-up profile by Bob Simon of FC Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi, whose prowess at 25 was demonstrated in last Sunday's 60 Minutes piece on the Barcelona team.

Billy Dee Williams
Going into NCIS' 10th season, you'd think we've learned all there is to know about Mark Harmon's Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Think again. As I reported last week, an October episode will introduce Star Wars vet Billy Dee Williams as Gibbs' namesake.
