"Hart of Dixie" and "Beauty and the Beast" dipped a little for The CW.ABC averaged 13.7 million viewers and an 8.9 rating/14 share in households for the night, pending updates for the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/tv-ratings-the-voice-hits-season-low-monday-almost-human-falls-in-second-episode.html

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Mom and Dad': The redemption of Billy Zabka

After a couple of pretty solid, not entirely wedding weekend-focused episodes of "How I Met Your Mother," we returned to all-wedding-hijinx, all-the-time with Monday's (Nov. 18) episode. So let's run down "Mom and Dad" bullet point-style.The good- Singing! It would be a badly missed opportunity to get Neil Patrick Harris, Wayne Brady, Ben Vereen and John Lithgow in the same episode and not have them break into song. Barney's and James' dueling fantasies (which give the episode its title) fill the bill nicely. - Marshall is almost there. The road-trip subplot revolved around Daphne making it to New York in time to see her daughter's Model U.N. speech in the city, and they got there just in time. That means Marshall, barring unforeseen calamity (see below), is just a couple hours away from Farhampton and able to reunite with the gang.- Zabka-tage! If the show has to fill the idle hours between the big events... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/how-i-met-your-mother---mom-and-dad-the-redemption-of-billy-zabka.html

HIMYM Will Do an Episode in Rhyme

  This season of How I Met Your Mother has been kind of a disaster, between Marshall's terribly unfunny road trip away from the rest of the cast, Ted's terrible attitude about single women, Robin's over-the-top hatred of Barney's mom, and the general intra-friend-group nastiness. But maybe this will help: Cobie Smulders tells E! that one of the upcoming episodes is all in verse. "It's like every second line is a rhyme. It varies," Smulders says. "The writers just nailed it. It's so fun and they just made it so funny, but so lyrical at the same time." Hey, something weird and creative! This is the most promising HIMYM news in ages.   http://www.vulture.com/2013/11/himym-will-do-an-episode-in-rhyme.html
