Fall TV is upon us!
Your favorite TV shows are returning in just a few short weeks — some of them with radical changes. (We're looking at you, Glee and Grey's Anatomy.) Will your favorite characters be shacking up with someone new, getting new jobs or — sniff -- dying? You'll have to check TVGuide.com in the coming weeks to get the scoop on all things fall TV!
For now, our editors have compiled a lengthy list of things we hope to see happen on TV this year. Keep in mind that these are wishes near and dear to our hearts and do not reflect any actual upcoming plots (yet!). Check it out:
Saturday Night Live may be losing another cast member.

Be warned, How I Met Your Mother fans: You may want to have some Kleenex nearby for Monday's episode. "I think it's fair to say that the episode is different than anyone had imagined coming into it," co-creator/co-executive producer Craig Thomas tells TVGuide.com. "It's one of those where while we're shooting it and editing it that you see people tearing up. It's very funny, but it's very emotional too. The very end of the episode seems like it's made a lot of people cry, but it's a good cry." The episode picks up moments after Robin (Cobie Smulders) told Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) that she's pregnant and it is chock-full of more surprises, Thomas says — including, as the logline teases, some "bad news" for Robin. What could that be? Read on to see Thomas' hints about this revelation, why he and Carter Bays wrote the pregnancy, and what's next for the rest of the season.
With the death of Marshall's father last spring and Robin's recent emotional roller coaster, CBS' How I Met Your Mother has been playing out like a daytime soap, and executive producer Carter Bays says there's more drama ahead next year. "We always try to do that delicate dance between lighthearted comedy and real issues," Carter says. Among the upcoming developments:
• Barney finds romantic stability — likely with a woman named...
Who was Nazanin Boniadi's childhood crush? None other than Neil Patrick Harris.
"I've loved him since I was little. I'm not even joking! I've had a crush on him forever," she tells TVGuide.com. "So to be playing his girlfriend now is surreal."
How I Met Your Mother boss: Can Barney and Robin ignore their chemistry?
When Boniadi landed the part of Nora on How I Met Your Mother last year, little did she know that it would lead to a recurring gig with no end in sight for now — she has "no clue" how many episodes she'll be in this season — never mind the fact that Nora, and not Robin (Cobie Smulders), would be the one to force Barney (Harris) to reevaluate his womanizing lifestyle.
"In real life, too, women love to be that girl who tames the bad boy," Boniadi says. "It's always fun to play that character, especially with Barney Stinson, who's so beloved. You get to act opposite Neil. He's phenomenal. He raises everybody's game. To work opposite him, you have to be at your best and you become better and better as you work with him."
