Neil Patrick Harris' dream comes true quite fast as it is announced that Amanda Peet will indeed guest star on "How I Met Your Mother". There is no clue yet what kind of role Peet will play but TV Guide said her cameo will be in a January episode. On Thursday, November 19, Harris who plays Barney in the sitcom said that he has Peet in mind for a guest star. "You know, she's never guest-starred on any shows before and plus, she's already worked with Jason Segel once on 'Gulliver's Travels'," he told E! Online. Segel is Marshall in "HIMYM". Peet is not the only guest star coming to the show this season. This Monday, November 23, Chris Elliot from "Everybody Loves Raymond" is playing Lily's estranged father who comes for family Thanksgiving dinner. Then there will be Rachel Bilson, Tim Gunn and Stacy Keibler in the 100th episode that airs on January 11. Source Here
This week's Coolest Moments (aka Top Moments) messed with our minds. The Prisoner made us feel dumb. Jennifer Morrison's departure from House made us sad. And CBS' random acts of pixelation during The Amazing Race made us wonder what they could possibly be hiding. Welcome to TV's Coolest Moments: Dazed and Confused Edition. 12. Worst Reveal: After five head-scratching hours of AMC 's The Prisoner , we learn that The Village basically exists inside the brain of Two's wife back in the real world. After Two's son, 11-12, kills his mom and hangs himself, a distraught Two (aka Mr. Curtis) convinces Six and the rest of the villagers that Six is the new leader and 313 is the dreamer whose brain will keep the utopia alive. So Six is No. 1? But he's dressed like Two? Who cares? 11. Best Reveal: How does Sons of Anarchy top Gemma's announcement that she's been raped? A guilt-ridden Tig tells Opie how and why Donna was killed. In a satisfying twist, a raging Opie shows mercy on Stahl and vows to keep the secret from the other brothers for the sake of the club. 10. Least Sincere Invitation: After vigorous prompting by Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Palin says she would like to have Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson, over for Thanksgiving. "Levi is a part of the family," she says. "This can all work out for good ... we don't have to keep going down this road of controversy and drama." 9. Worst Judgment: Yes, it's always best to tell the truth, but this week on Glee , was it really smart of Finn (I know, nothing about Finn is smart) to take it upon himself to tell Quinn's parents that she's knocked up... in song? For the blessed event, Finn chooses a heinous cover of Paul Anka's already lukewarm "You're Having My Baby." Needless to say, Quinn's folks throw her out of the house. 8. Best History Lesson: On Fringe , Olivia and Peter find evidence that the Observers have been around for a long time. In fact, familiar bald heads have been present at all kinds of historical events, including Marie-Antoinette's beheading, the Boston Massacre, and the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, which started World War I. Worse still, the Observers think the next such major event will involve Olivia. To Read More Click Here .

Living up here in Canada (where we all live in igloos and must snowshoe through 4 feet of snow every day - even in the summer!), I am always confused by the strange American custom of having Thanksgiving in November, instead of October when we have it. I'm guessing that the Canadian and American settlers couldn't keep their schedules coordinated properly or something on this whole "Thanksgiving thing". Or it might have something to do with the fact that we each settled our countries in entirely different years. I don't know. I'm not a historical scholar, damnit! Anyways, I mention this because the November 23rd new episode of How I Met Your Mother is a Thanksgiving episode, complete with slaps. Because the slap is the one Thanksgiving tradition that brings everyone Canadians and Americans alike together. Check out the promo photos and a short synopsis below and enjoy it while you can, because we're facing a rerun for the November 30th episode. Source Here

In the episode, we see Barney and Robin getting too comfortable in their relationship to the point that they have let themselves go.

Ever wondered how things would be like if Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) hooked up and got married on How I Met Your Mother ? Curious fans will finally find out tonight at 8pm in the sixth episode of the fifth season entitled "Bagpipes." Barney and Robin (Cobie Smulders) certainly look like the perfect couple but their seemingly rock solid relationship gets shattered as they have their first official major fight. Evidently, Barney's know-it-all attitude gets him in trouble with Robin and they are now forced to ask Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily for relationship advice. Seeking Marshall and Lily's help, however, isn't that easy for Barney and Robin since Marshall and Lily, who are having a few stereotypical marital problems because Lily is forcing Marshall to do the dishes, don't live up to their idea of the "perfect couple" who doesn't fight. Consequently, Barney describes two different scenarios--- one of which involves a sequence where Barney wonders what will happen if he is Lily's husband instead of Marshall. In his "blissful married life" with Lily, Barney lays down the law on not having to clean and the couple shares a kiss. Source Here
