Interview with NPH about various things including Dr. Horrible 2 and the coming episodes and possible end of How I Met Your Mother.

Fun interview with Tiffani Thiessen – White Collar’s Elizabeth Burke. Can’t believe this season will be over in a month!
More scoop on Ringer, which returns from its holiday hiatus tonight at 9! I’ve missed this show, and I’m looking forward to what new twists will come to light now that Siobhan is returning to NYC.
Three more pilot orders for The CW, to add to the five previously announced. I’d love to know how many pilot orders are typical for the network, to see if shows like Nikita and Ringer are in more danger than I would like.
Shelter looks like it’s trying to build on the success of Downton Abbey and The Help, by focusing on the staff at a resort. Seems a little bland to be a J.J. Abrams project, but I think it could make a good half hour comedy.
The Selection brings The Hunger Games to mind (even though I haven’t gotten around to reading the book), but 300 years in the future sounds awesome in a premise, no matter the rest of it.
Joey Dakota – I think romantic time-travel musical says about everything. It could be wonderful, or it could fall utterly. But is that NCIS’s Mark Harmon as an executive producer?
Not surprised that Mindy Kaling is looking outside The Office – she’s been underused there lately. This sounds like it could be fun, even though I don’t typically watch medical shows. I can see this being paired with New Girl.
Excited that one of my favorite Whedonverse actors, Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse) is going to be on both fairy tale shows – Grimm and Once Upon a Time – within the next months. Her black widow take (above) looks a little scary!
Fun retrospective on how Chuck lasted so many seasons – includes a video of Zachary Levi and fans invading a Subway to win support for the show and one of its main sponsors.
I don’t watch The Vampire Diaries, so I don’t know anything about Taylor Kinney, but he also was on the short-lived medical thriller Trauma. And I love the Awake (when is that show ever going to air, anyhow?) casting news in this article – I have only watched a handful of Alias episodes, but gadget guy Marshall was one of my favorite characters.
TV Line, probably my all time favorite TV news site (as you can probably tell by all the times I’ve linked to it!), has just started a new feature – a web series entitled Spoiler Alert! This debut episode is chock full of laughter, fun clips, and speculation about TV shows.
But beware: the title is true. This web series has plenty of spoilers! Since I don’t watch Revenge I have no clue how bad the spoilers are for that, but for other shows it seems to be pretty mild IF you’re caught up (especially for Once Upon a Time). Guest Yvette Nicole Brown dishes on Community and acts out a future scene from Downton Abbey (looks like the big spoiler in that was edited out, so no worries about watching) with Ugly Betty’s Michael Urie.
Castle gets its own fairy tale episode! Interesting that this article talks all about the ABC Once Upon a Time connection (the episode is titled “Once Upon a Crime”), but barely mentions Grimm – hello, police investigating a crime where the victim is dressed like Red Riding Hood and was apparently killed by a wolf attack? Straight from Grimm’s pilot, though I’m sure Castle’s storyline will be much different.
And how does this article almost overlook where most people will recognize Sarah Jane Morris from? She’s NCIS’s EJ Barrett!
Would you watch a show set on Schrute Farms? This spinoff sounds a little kooky, even for The Office, but Dwight is so funny I’d at least watch the pilot. At the link below there’s also some discussion on the likelihood of The Office cast being available for the next season.
Love that the Whedonverse is invading Grimm – first Angel and Dollhouse alum Amy Acker, and now Azura Skye, who played Cassie in season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
After the mean twist in last week’s penultimate episode, this week’s two-hour Chuck finale promises to be epic and heartbreaking. Don’t read any further if you’re not caught up!
