401 Photos, NPH on Letterman, Signed Jeans

You can see 14 promotional shots for 401 here. SPOILER ALERT: Apparently they go to MacLaren’s. [No, really, it doesn't give anything away beyond that, unless you consider "Jason Segel still needs a haircut" a spoiler.]

  • A HIMYM drinking game has been posted over at Fanpop.
  • You can see NPH’s appearance on Letterman here (as well as a ton of other great Neil videos), thanks to NPH-fan.com.
  • ABC just gave the sitcom Single with Parents a midseason pickup – the show’s from Kristin Newman, who was a producer on HIMYM during S2 and wrote the episodes “Single Stamina” and “Ted Mosby, Architect.”
  • The cast of HIMYM signed a pair of jeans for the Clothes Off Our Back auction, which will run until September 8 and benefit several charities.

7. If Bob Saget had to pick a new Danny Tanner, it’d be Josh Radnor.

8. Gloria Calderon Kellet won the ALMA for Outstanding Writing for a Television Series, for the episode “How I Met Everyone Else.”

9. CBS released the official description of 401, for those of you who don’t want to read anything more spoilery than the one-line network description.

10. The TV Addict talked to Carter Bays about the Emmys, standalone episodes, and whether he has concerns about Jason Segel. [He doesn't.]

I take great comfort in the fact that all of my favorite shows in the past never got nominated and I’ll continue to do so until we do get nominated. At which point I’ll disavow any statement like that and say that the Emmy Voters always get it right

11. Neil and Josh were at the Hot in Hollywood benefit [NPH arriving, I haven't seen any Josh photos] and performed a raunchy version of “Puff, the Magic Dragon” ["Ruby, the Magic Unicorn"], guided by suggestions from the audience.

Segel HairWatch: Our National Crisis Continues

TV Guide on set as they film S4 – not particularly notable for spoilers (guest star talk, general “[character] deals with [plot you probably could have guessed]” mentions for everyone), but the interviews are cute.

But of course, the real reason this video gets its own post is because it marks our first new Segel sighting since June 13, and sadly, it was not just for I Love You, Man: Jason Segel still needs a haircut.

Thanks to Meg for the video!
