CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler has now confirmed for TVLine that Season 9′s entire run will, in fact, span the wedding weekend and just the wedding weekend, as the comedy details “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So, they each meet her independently before he does.”
UGH. 24 episodes of a 56-hour weekend. Does that make sense to anyone? They’ll have to do some episodes outside of the weekend timeline. How could there be enough stories otherwise? Are Marshall and Lilly going to argue about not going to Rome for the entire season?
No. Why? Stop. Who asked for this?
Details remain sketchy, but sources confirm that MSN is interested in relaunching the once red-hot NBC Universal franchise with new stories and heroes, while mixing in cameos from the original series’ cast (schedules and interest permitting). The talks are said to be in the preliminary stages.
If Tim Kring is far from this maybe I could be on board.
hahaha fuck everything
Well, American theater had a good run.
Listen up, Hollywood: Beautiful actresses are not funny. They don’t know how to do comedy … Only women who grew up ugly and stayed ugly, or through plastic surgery became beautiful, can pull off sitcoms or standups … Because it’s all about emotional pain and humiliation and rising above both by making people laugh with you instead of at you. So stop casting beautiful actresses when you should be giving ugly women a chance.

TOLJDA she’s the worst.
FINALLY. I’ve been waiting to find out what happened.
He says his script starts about 6 months after the TV series leaves off. “There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters.”
You know, I was just thinking, “what we need is a new Sherlock Holmes treatment. Haven’t seen any of those recently.”
Both directed by James Burrows and both about …
CBS describes “Partners” as “two life-long best friends and business partners whose ‘bromance’ is tested when one of them is engaged to be married.” The lead characters (played by David Krumholtz andMichael Urie) are architects, and Krumholtz’s fiancee is named Ali.
The 1995-96 comedy from FOX is described as “Best friends Bob and Owen work together as aspiring young architects on the rise, their relationship complicated by Owen’s recent engagement to Alicia.”
This is why we can’t have nice things.
According to the Post, Hulu is considering adding cable authentication to their service. Meaning, in order to watch you’ll need to log in with your cable or satellite provider.
This will no doubt make cutting the cord difficult but should also increase piracy. Good job TV industry.
Universal Pictures Stage Productions has hired the Barenaked Ladies to write the music, Michael Mitnick to handle the libretto, and Casey Nicholaw (co-director and choreographer of The Book of Mormon) to choreograph and direct. Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and James L. Nederlanders are producing, along with original Animal House film producer and founding publisher of National Lampoon magazine Matty Simmons.
I like the Barenaked Ladies and think they were a good choice for this but in general, do not want. And you just know it’s going to have “Shout” in there. Ugh.
Lights Camera Jackson is the worst.
I hope he goes to film school and his professors tear him to pieces.
I can’t. I don’t. Anymore. What. This is just. Ugh.
The “Saturday Night Live” star is refusing to do a reprise and tells THR she is working on something else with writing partner Annie Mumolo.
No, this is so very, very bad. It’s all that’s greedy and wrong with the Hollywood system. Why can’t they just let a good movie stand for what it is. Hire Wiig and Mumolo to do a different film and bill it from the ‘creators of Bridesmaids.’
A sequel to Bridesmaids without Wiig would call for a mass boycott and I hope the rest of the cast would be smart enough (and loyal enough) not to sign on.
