News Roundup

  • Scheduling: December 1 will be a rerun of The Bracket, and a new episode, The Fight, will air on December 8.

  • Video of Josh at Don’t Quit Your Night Job (thanks Ingrid!):

The Alyson Hannigan portion of the update got out of hand lengthwise and will be posted separately.

  • Footage of NPH getting dunked on Ellen last week has finally surfaced!
  • Variety’s Q&A with Carter Bays and Craig Thomas has been posted. Between that and Cleveland Magazine’s interview with Carter Bays, there’s a lot of talk about how much of the show is based in real life.

[What can I say? The show took a week off and so did I. A lot of you are waiting on emails right now - you'll get a response this weekend!]

News Roundup

You guys, I will be so glad when Monday’s episode airs and I can stop treating every scrap of information about the episode like it’s a major spoiler. But since it hasn’t aired yet: Two batches of links! The first batch contains no Shelter Island spoilers.

  • Jamie-Lynn Sigler has signed on to play Jillian in 4.08. Spoiler level: Nothing new for those of you who read yesterday’s post, nothing major for those of you who didn’t. He just does the whole “Sigler will play Jillian, who is…” thing, and it’s a) not entirely correct, so far as I know, and b) not very spoilery at all.
  • Greg Malins is making a pilot for ABC.
  • Jason Segel will be on Live with Regis and Kelly on October 27. [Thanks to Shermie for the tip.]
  • Sarah Chalke will be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on October 22.
  • A self-employed prestidigitator [look it up] named Neil Harris contributed to No on 8. [Proposition 8 would undo California's legalization of gay marriage.]
  • Auction! A TiVo HD, signed by Neil Patrick Harris [and some other celebrities from Stand Up To Cancer, which is what the auction is for]. It comes with a year’s subscription to TiVo.
  • Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof get stalked by paparazzi in Santa Monica.
  • TV Week interviewed the co-chairs of Twentieth Century Fox [the studio that produces HIMYM] – mostly industry stuff, with a few mentions of the show and how the studio feels about it.

And everything in the second batch contains some degree of spoiler for the episode:

InFANity: How I Met Your Mother

This aired a few weeks ago, but TV Guide just put it on YouTube. No spoilers (this was filmed two months ago), and they basically threw every single behind-the-scenes clip they could find into this, going back to Season Two, but there are some great interviews with the cast, as well as Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, and Pam Fryman. Most notably, in the first video, Alyson Hannigan endorses The Hair.

And Josh Radnor kicks ass at HIMYM trivia, only to be stumped by the lyrics to Let’s Go to the Mall:

Correction! Also: Segel.

As commenter JB pointed out in the post-ep for Intervention, Claudia was indeed played by Virginia Williams, the same actress who played her in S1. I got my information from the CBS press release for the episode, which says Claudia is played by Michelle Gunn, but the end credits say it was Virginia Williams. (Michelle Gunn actually played Mrs. Abergast – the mother of Lily’s student who got Ted’s letter by mistake.)

And to make this post worth your while, the Elliot in the Morning website has uploaded an MP3 of Jason Segel’s call to the show this morning.

Post-Ep: I Heart NJ

Barney blogs about the esteemed history of the fist bump.

HIMYM Style has identified several outfits from last night’s episode, with updates posted as they become available.

Jason Segel: Fugged again.

Reviews and recaps:

Apparently CBS has a problem with letting people embed videos now, since it’s been disabled on one of the YouTube videos and all of the CBS.com ones. Anyway, here are two YouTube clips from the episode:

You can see the third [Barney's failed fist bump] here, and two more clips [Ted spending all his time on the train and Ted deciding to live in NJ], along with the full episode, here.

[Spoilers: Jason doesn't say anything spoilery, but while he's answering the Alyson Hannigan and Sarah Chalke questions, they show some video of Sarah, Jason, and Alyson shooting scenes for an upcoming episode.]

Going rapid-fire with this, because six posts in a day is ridiculous enough as it is:

Jason Segel Gets Fugged

Sad, but true.

L-WFI is pleased to see that others are taking up the call: Jason Segel, CUT YOUR HAIR.
