Saturday Night Live is back after the holidays with How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris as host, and the hugely popular Taylor Swift as musical guest. Did Neil's first time hosting fall flat or was it awe — wait for it — some?

The How I Met Your Mother star will make his debut on the late-night sketch series this Saturday, Jan. 10, with musical guest ...
Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live
Ready for another end-of-the-year retrospective catalog?
Courtesy of the list-happy folks at the American Film Institute, AFI has unveiled its Top Eight Moments of Significance in film, television and web to honor performances, trends and pretty much anything that can't be shortlisted on, say, AFI's Top 10 Films list.
Among those earning kudos are everyone from Tina Fey and Dr. Horrible to ...

Here we are at "hump night" of the first week of the official TV season. Or, given that NBC is giving us a line-up of the atrocious Knight Rider, the dishonestly monikered America's Got Talent and the turgid Lipstick Jungle, maybe we should rechristen Wednesdays "lump night."

What's better than seeing NPH riding a unicorn while trippin' on shrooms? How about NPH donning little white wings and singing about footwear as he plays The Shoe Fairy on Sesame Street? Turns out Harris is all about belting out the tunes these days (also starting in Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog), and in this PBS skit, the How I Met Your Mother star sings about his high-tops, polka dot flip-flops and every shoe under the sun they could find to rhyme.

Neil Patrick Harris in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along screen grab courtesy Mutant Enemy Productions
Two of my favorite things in all of show business— musical comedy and Joss Whedon — combine in the funniest, freshest TV special of the summer, which happens to be available only on your computer starting in mid-July.I had the great good fortune late last week to get a sneak peek at all 42 minutes of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Whedon's stylishly scrappy, lovably cheesy and insanely tuneful return to the form for which he showed such incredible aptitude in the classic "Once More, With Feeling" episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.Dr. Horrible, written during the writers' strike and filmed in six days this spring "on favors and waivers" by a crew of longtime Whedon loyalists, will be streamed for free in what Whedon cheerfully calls an "Internet miniseries event" on the show's official website (www.drhorrible.com) in three chapters. Part 1 will be available Tuesday, July 15, with the following segments (each roughly 14 minutes) available July 17 and 19. All three parts...
How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris is taking things back to his boy-genius Doogie days in this new commercial for Old Spice. In the ad, a white-coat-wearing NPH is an over-the-top "former make-believe doctor" on a mission to spread the word that chronic body odor can ruin lives. Take it from Doogie because, after all, he "used to play a doctor for pretend."
