Neil Patrick Harris has proven himself a very capable awards show host. But can the former How I Met Your Mother actor pull off a nightly late night talk show? According to the 40-year-old that was almost a possibility.

Harris revealed to Howard Stern that CBS president Les Moonves approached him about taking over a late-night slot. Harris explains he rejected both offers because he didn’t want to get “bored.”

“I don’t have any interest in doing ‘monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest musical act, goodnight,’” he tells Stern, adding “It’s still nightly. You’re still coming up with the same content and now you’re just getting bitter that no one’s watching it.”

Stephen Colbert you’re welcome. The Comedy Central host took over David Letterman’s gig after Letterman announced his retirement. Neil Patrick did however pitch another idea to Moonves. Find out what it is below.

Shakira Leaves The Voice

If Shakira is your favorite judge on The Voice, you better enjoy it while it lasts. The Colombian singer revealed she’s leaving the singing competition after this season. She states it was always a “temporary thing for her to do.”

That’s a shame. I really like the “Empire” singer on the show. She’s so cute whenever she finds out her contestant is safe. Sadly though, she’ll leave the show without a win. I don’t think Kristen Merlin can take it home for her this season.

Hopefully, Usher stays put and he’s paired with Christina Aguilera when she returns after Gwen Stefani and Pharrell sit in the red swivel chairs for Season 7. Check out Shakira’s interview below.

FOX 2014-15 Upfronts: Schedule & Show Trailers

fox-2014-upfronts

FOX presented their Fall 2014 schedule yesterday. I’ve been waiting for them to upload trailers for their new offerings. At last, the network finally got they lazy butts to work ;)

Without a doubt, Gotham is the most highly-anticipated among the bunch. Originally, FOX ordered 13 episodes but has since increased the order to 16. The Batman prequel is one of five new dramas, four new comedies, two event series and one new unscripted series FOX has in store for us.

Among the new programs that look most promising are Hieroglyph, Gracepoint, Empire and naturally Gotham. With American Idol pretty much dead and Glee ending next year, the network needs a breakout hit desperately.

Speaking of Glee, it was revealed that talks with Ryan Murphy are ongoing to see how many episodes are exactly needed to give the musical show a proper send-off. Reports say that it could be as low as 13. Gleeks brace yourself for a mini farewell.

Check out FOX’s new schedule below, along with trailers for most of their new shows.

We’re only a few weeks away before Netflix unleashes the second season of Orange Is The New Black. I fully expect to spend the entire weekend of June 6 binge watching all the episodes. Anyone else with me?

For those who can’t wait for the ladies of Litchfield to return, the online streaming service released some new character posters for some of our favorite inmates. Included in the first batch are Laura Pepron (Alex), Natasha Lyonne (Nicky), Laverne Cox (Sophia), Lea DaLaria (Big Boo) and Yael Stone (Lorna). Check out the artwork below. If you missed the trailer, check out this previous post.

The season-long lead up to Cam and Mitchell’s wedding takes place in the two-episode Modern Family season finale beginning this Wednesday. Both Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet appeared on Good Morning America this morning to promote the momentous event.

In one of the sweetest publicity stunts in recent memory, the two announced that the show will pay for all marriage licenses and City Hall wedding costs for couples getting married in New York City on Monday.

In addition to announcing the heartwarming stunt, Stonestreet and Ferguson went head to head in a cake decorating competition. With regards to their alter egos, I’d give the edge to Stonestreet. Not to perpetuate stereotypes, but Fergson is the actual gay one in real life. Check out their ‘masterpieces‘ below.

NBC kicked upfronts week off by being the first to present their 2014-2015 schedule among the major broadcast networks. The most significant schedule change sees the #1 new show of the past season, The Blacklist, moving from Mondays to Thursdays in February. The James Spader show also scores the coveted post-Super Bowl timeslot. The peacock network also revealed that both Parenthood and Parks & Recreation will head into their respective final seasons.

Several familiar faces including Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy), Debra Messing (Will & Grace), Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), Elisha Cuthbert (Happy Endings), Craig Robinson (The Office) and Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother) return to front their own shows. Popular DC Comics Fan Favorite Constantine starring Matt Ryan comes to life on Fridays.

Check out NBC’s new schedule for next season below along with several trailers for their upcoming offerings. At first glance, they all look quite promising, at least the ones airing immediately in the Fall do.

CBS announces its new fall schedule on Wednesday, May 14 but revealed the fates for a handful of shows that hadn’t been renewed or canceled yet. Most of the on-the-bubble shows received bad news with exception to The Mentalist which received a seventh season. With the series-long Red John arc resolved during this season, I fully expected the Simon Baker drama to end. I guess I was wrong. Find out the casualties below.

Best TV Moms: Dono & Patty’s Top 10 Choices

In: Donovan, Patrick, TV Shows

In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to rotate this post originally published a few years ago. Donovan and myself ranked our favorite all-time television moms. Let’s face it: at one point growing up, we’ve watched a few sitcoms and thought it’d be cool to have one of those TV moms as our own, especially when we were fighting with our real ones ;)

Patrick

10. Sandy Hogan (Sandy Duncan) The Hogan Family (1986-1991)

Played by Sandy Duncan, she was the aunt that came in to effectively become the surrogate mom of the family after their mother, Valerie Harper, was killed off in the second season. She had a lot to deal with playing the role of the “mother” and it was a very interesting concept for that time, since it was not the conventional perfect family. Oh, do you remember that Jason Bateman was in this show? Here’s a link to the show’s intro to refresh your memory.

Donovan

10. Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter) Family Ties (1982-1989)

There are three different reasons why Elyse Keaton made the list.

  • 1. She was an architect which I thought was the coolest job growing up.
  • 2. The theme song “Without Us” was brilliant.
  • 3. I totally wanted to be related to Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox).
