"We decided it might be funny to say our cast is going to be on in the fall more than any other cast," executive producer Bill Lawrence told USA Today. The result is that his actors will appear in background roles on numerous shows before the Season 3 premiere.

Sure, you can catch her soon on How I Met Your Mother (as Ausiello reported), but sorry, fans of Busy Philipps on ER, this season's second episode could very well be her last. That's when her do-good-doc character Hope leaves for South America to fulfill her Christian mission you know, as in faith, Hope and charity. "But the door is not closed for a return," NBC sources tell TV Guide.com. "She greatly enjoyed her character and we enjoyed her. She's a lot of fun." Unfortunately, viewers can probably expect her sex slave, Dr. Morris (Scott Grimes), to be even more annoying than usual when she dumps him for, you know... God. Reporting by Ileane Rudolph

(Either way, Ted's one lucky mother.)Though Philipps is likely to fit right in with the How crowd, don't expect her to stick around beyond this pre-sweeps installment. Ted's pal Lily gives the sexpot the big thumbs-down after realizing that she's the shopper who ruined her shopping trip by walking off with a pair of coveted boots.So what do yo...
