Meg Ryan is the new Bob Saget! That's a line no one ever thought they'd ever hear, but it's the truth: Ryan has been tapped to voice the future mother in CBS's "How I Met Your Mother" reimagining "How I Met Your Dad."
Just as Saget voiced "Future Ted" (who was played by Josh Radnor in the present day on the show) to tell his kids the sweet (and ultimately heartbreaking and terrible, depending on your taste) story of meeting their mother, now Ryan will voice "Future Sally," who is being played in present day by Greta Gerwig.
'Bad Teacher' Goes Back to School on the Small Screen: 'A Totally Different Story With Different Personalities'Carrie Bell at Yahoo TV14 hrs ago
Writer and producer Hilary Winston immediately fell in love with the title "Bad Teacher" when her good friends and fellow screenwriters Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky told her about a movie idea they were developing.
"It's hard to get people to watch [anything] and even harder if they don't know what it's about. [That title] is clear, to the point, specific," Winston ("Community," "Happy Endings," and "My Name Is Earl") explained to Yahoo TV. "I told [them] it didn't matter how it came out, it was a great title."

Eric Hill, one of the suitors vying for Andi Dorfman's roses in the upcoming season of ABC's "The Bachelorette," has died following a paragliding accident over the weekend. He was 32.
"Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away," his sister, Karen Tracy, wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning.
Wait, Was That in the Book?! The Original Text of That Jaime and Cersei Scene From 'Game of Thrones'Robert Chan at Yahoo TV15 hrs ago
Even if you don't watch "Game of Thrones" regularly, you might have heard about some of its OMG moments: the death of the main character, Ned Stark; the Red Wedding; the Purple Wedding. You might have heard about this past Sunday's episode and wondered what the fuss was all about. Somebody was raped? Doesn't that — and worse — happen nearly every week?
Here's the scene: King Joffrey Baratheon is dead; he drank poisoned wine at his wedding (that's the Purple Wedding — because of the wine and the color of his face ). His body is on display in the church and his mother, Cersei Lannister, is weeping over it. Her twin brother (and Joffrey's father), Jaime, orders everyone else out and attempts to comfort her. The embrace turns into a mutual kiss, but she pushes him away. He then forces himself on her as she repeatedly tells him to stop.

"Fargo" pulled off two of the coolest character introductions ever tonight. We don't even know their names – and never will – but we know their dynamic. And we like it a lot.
In the opening scene of "Fargo" Episode 2 (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX), titled "The Rooster Prince," we met two heavies – "We're from Fargo" – played by Adam Goldberg and Russell Harvard, and they seemed like your typical thuggish henchmen (albeit in some very interesting outfits)… until they started signing to each other. Watch their introduction here:
This isn't the first time American Sign Language (ASL) has been seen on the small screen recently, but it is the first time it's been shown totally out of context. No subtitles and a very obvious discrepancy between what was being signed and what was being said meant that the "Fargo" audience was just as out of the loop as the other characters on the show.
'Grimm' First Look: College Student Turned Cast Member Revealed as Leather-Loving, Machete-Wielding Wesen FoeCarrie Bell at Yahoo TV1 day ago
Nick (David Giuntoli) and friends have been up to their eyeballs in royals, Resistance fighters, and an enchanted rugrat for the past few months on "Grimm." And that's on top of their standard Wesen-of-the-week encounters, wedding planning, and an unscheduled visit from the very intense Mommie Grimmest (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). Portland's supernatural squad sure could use a break, but they aren't going to get it when the arrival of a mysterious drifter in the Rose City spells trouble (phonetically at least) as the cops-n-creatures series returns on Friday, April 25.

Aaron Sorkin was wrong, and he can admit it. He just apologized to "everyone in the world" for his critically savaged HBO drama "The Newsroom," specifically the way it depicts recent news events with perfect hindsight. He also said of the series (entering its third and final season this fall), "I feel like I'm just now starting to learn how to write it." Hey, better late than never, huh?
But he shouldn't have stopped there; there are plenty of irritating things about "The Newsroom" that call for a mea culpa. In fact, here are eight "Newsroom" scenes that we'd appreciate an apology for. Mr. Sorkin, we're waiting.
1. MacKenzie sends a sensitive email — to everyone. (Season 1, Episode 2)

It's a "Late Show" lovefest tonight as outgoing host David Letterman welcomes his replacement, Stephen Colbert, as a guest for the first time since Colbert signed on to take the reins of CBS's late-night talk show next year.
And this is no Leno-Conan situation; these two are obviously on great terms. Colbert has been a "Late Show" guest a dozen times already, and in the preview clip above, Letterman warmly introduces the man who'll take his seat as "the very talented and always entertaining Stephen Colbert."
Following 'The Following': Valorie Curry Explains Emma's Death and the Show's Harry Potter ConnectionBreanne L. Heldman at Yahoo TV1 day ago
Be warned! Spoilers from this week's episode of "The Following" abound.
When a show is about a serial killer and the people who love him, we suppose no death should be shocking. Still, some fans of "The Following" didn't see this week's farewell coming.
After two straight weeks of brutal deaths — Lily Gray (Connie Nielsen) and Mandy Lang (Tiffany Boone) — apparently the body count for the hit Fox show wasn't over, and original character Emma Hill (Valorie Curry) met her demise at the hands of madman Joe Carroll's ex-wife, Claire Matthews (Natalie Zea).
While actress Curry may have her murderous on-screen counterpart in her rear view mirror, we managed to squeeze seven still-simmering questions out of her.
