How I Met Your Mother delivered on their promise to reveal “the Mother” on Monday night’s season 8 finale. For eight seasons, Ted’s (Josh Radnor) children have been patiently listening to their father recount the very long and sometimes sordid tale of how he came to meet their mother.

Oh, sure, you might know him as the sexy, often shirtless Alcide Herveaux on HBO's hit show, True Blood, with Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Carrie Preston and Alexander Skarsgard, but Joe Manganiello was racking up an unlikely fan following for a recurring character, Brad, on CBS's How I Met Your Mother all the way back in 2006, when True Blood was still a mere twinkle in creator Alan Ball's eye.
Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and other stars of the hit superhero extravaganza, The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, are telling fans everywhere what small-screen devotees of Whedon shows like Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Angel and Dr.

The Church of Scientology is fighting mad, and they want Vanity Fair and everyone associated with them to know it. The church has sent an eight-page letter to Vanity Fair, penned by lawyer Jeffrey K. Riffer of the law firm Elkins Kalt Weintraud Reuben Gartside LLP, responding to the magazine's October 2012 issue report that Scientology leaders David Miscavige and his wife Shelly Miscavige presided over meetings and interviews to find a wife for actor and Scientology bigwig Tom Cruise prior to his marriage to Katie Holmes and following his divorce from Nicole Kidman.
Katie Holmes, 33, may not be the wife of Tom Cruise, 50, anymore, and, according to new reports, she almost wasn't at all! Holmes married Cruise after he was allegedly set up with Iranian-born How I Met Your Mother actress Nazanin Boniadi, 32, by the Church of Scientology, which reportedly vetted potential wives for Cruise, according to a new Vanity Fair story.

How I Met Your Mother should not be a successful television show. Let’s start with the basics. First, the series premiered in 2005, at a time when the three-camera sitcom had pretty much died.
