Question: What is up with Saturday Night Live? Who are all these people?? There are so many people in the cast that I simply can't connect to them. Back when SNL started, the Not Ready For Prime Time Players was a cast of 7 and you really "knew" them. You knew their characters, their skits, you looked forward to Roseanne Roseannadanna and Belushi's Samurai. Now with a cast of thousands (it seems), no one really cares. I, like so many others, watch the opening, fast-forward to the musical guest (maybe), watch the news, then erase. The best thing the PTB could do would be to trim the cast, keep the ones we really like (Wiig, Kenan, Samberg, Hader, Meyers) and start writing for them, not just writing to fill the time. — Deb

How I Met Your Mother's John Lithgow: Playing Barney's Dad Is "Doubly Fun"

John Lithgow, Neil Patrick Harris

One of How I Met Your Mother's biggest mysteries (no, not that one) will be revealed on Monday, but don't remind John Lithgow how big of a deal it is.

"I didn't watch the show ... so I didn't know that it was such a big deal to be asked to play Barney's father," he tells TVGuide.com. "I didn't know it was a six-year running gag: Who is his actual father? I said yes to it before I knew about all this. This is very typical of me — I don't really know what I'm doing. Everybody's so excited. There are great expectations now. I'm nervous!"

Will How I Met Your Mother end in two years? Our burning questions answered

Lithgow makes his first of two appearances Monday, as Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) at long last comes face-to-face with his absentee dad — the man he once thought was Bob Barker and the man his mom, Loretta (Frances Conroy), had previously told him was merely "Uncle Jerry." After receiving the letter Barney wrote him last month, Jerry surprises his son at his apartment to forge a relationship. "It's explained why [there was no contact] for 30 years," Lithgow says. "There's a lot of longing and need on both sides, as it happens when a child loses a parent at a young age. On both sides, it's a wanting to... read more

Larisa Oleynik Is Open to a Hawaii Five-0 Romance With McGarrett

Alex O'Loughlin and Larisa Oleynik

Could Larisa Oleynik's recurring guest spot on Hawaii Five-0 mean a new love interest for Alex O'Loughlin's Steve McGarrett?

"Gosh, that's certainly been the question on all of my single friends' minds," Oleynik tells TVGuide.com. The former Secret World of Alex Mack star begins her multiple-episode run on the CBS drama on Monday playing Jenna Kaye, a CIA agent visiting from Langley, Va. "The thing is when it comes to romance with one of the leads, I kind of hope not. I really like all of their romantic story lines so far.

Pretty Little Liars' Ian Harding: People Are Going To Be Angry at Ezra After the Finale

Lucy Hale, Ian Harding

Nobody knows what it's like to be in a relationship that's so wrong, yet so right, more that Pretty Little Liars' Ian Harding. Playing the adorably handsome, yet morally conflicted Ezra Fitz, Harding says that although there are legal ramifications for him and his student Aria (Lucy Hale) to be together, they're soulmates.

But the couple may run into some major problems. A cop saw Aria leave Ezra's apartment in last week's episode and a mystery person took the key Aria uses to get into her boyfriend's apartment. Harding tells TVGuide.com that viewers might be focusing on the wrong thing, how Ezra's former fiancé could be returning, and why fans might be upset with him by the finale's end. Plus: Which PLL would Harding's high school self have dated?
