'How I Met Your Mother': EP Carter Bays teases 'The Final Page' and talks final-season plans

The final "How I Met Your Mother" of 2012 promises to bring the Barney-Robin-Patrice story that's been playing out over the past few weeks to a head. Just how, though, we can't tell you -- because co-creator Carter Bays won't tell us. Bays does say, however, that "The Final Page," an hour-long episode airing Monday (Dec. 17) will be the "culmination" of that story. "It's a very big, romantic, Christmasy episode," he tells Zap2it.We spoke with Bays recently about the state of the show, how the writers are dealing with final-season limbo and some upcoming stories. Zap2it: How did the hour-long episode come together?Carter Bays: Because of Hurricane Sandy we got pre-empted a week ... and we had episode 12, we knew we wanted it to be our Christmas episode, and we were thinking of creative ways to catch up. ... Episodes 11 and 12 really felt like two halves of the same story, so... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/how-i-met-your-mother-ep-carter-bays-teases-the-final-page-and-talks-final-season-plans.html

How I Met Your Mother Boss on Show's Fate, Barney's Proposal and More

And you thought Barney and Quinn moved fast. On Monday's How I Met Your Mother , Barney ( Neil Patrick Harris ) is planning on popping the question to his girlfriend and Robin's office nemesis Patrice (Ellen D. Williams), whom he started dating just two episodes ago. Not if Robin ( Cobie Smulders ) has anything to do about it, right? The increasingly vindictive Canuck, intervention be damned, is still attempting to do everything she can to derail their relationship. That includes entertaining the idea of possibly getting Patrice fired from the station during a performance review.   The hour-long episode is one of the last few before co-creator/co-executive producer Carter Bays says that they have to know whether there show will return for a Season 9. So when can we expect word? Is Barney actually proposing to Patrice? Bays answers our burning questions below. //www.tvguide.com/News/HIMYM-Scoop-Carter-Bays-1057846.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'How I Met Your Mother': Ashley Benson connects with Barney

"Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson will catch the eye of one of "How I Met Your Mother's" regulars come January.Benson has booked a guest spot on the CBS comedy, the network says. She'll appear in an episode scheduled for Jan. 21 as a -- to quote the CBS tweet -- "????" for Barney (Neil Patrick Harris).TVLine reports that Benson will be an "unconventional love interest" for a member of the gang -- but stops short of saying it's Barney. If it is, that would mean another obstacle to clear before the inevitable Barney-Robin (Cobie Smulders) reconciliation that leads to the wedding we've seen teased countless times on the show.On the other hand, she could be tied to Barney in some other way (a long-lost little sister, maybe?) -- which would mean another member of the group falls for her. But we may be parsing things a little too much there.What do you think of... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/how-i-met-your-mother-ashley-benson-connects-with-barney.html

TV ratings: '2 Broke Girls' and 'The Voice' lead Monday as American Country Awards stumble

Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 10, 2012CBS had a good night Monday as its lineup, led by a pair of "2 Broke Girls" episodes, was up across the board. "The Voice," which scaled back to one hour this week, was up a tick over its 8 o'clock numbers last week as well. That didn't translate to great ratings for the premiere of game show "Take It All," however.Elsewhere, the American Country Awards fell sharply from last year's show, losing more than 2 million viewers. "Gossip Girl" hit a season high for The CW.CBS currently stands at 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/10 share in households for the night. Those numbers may come down a bit in the final nationals because the network's Houston affiliate carried a highly rated "Monday Night Football" game. NBC (8.4 million, 5.1/8) came in second. ABC (whose Boston station also ran the "MNF" contest) was third at 5.6 million... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/tv-ratings-2-broke-girls-and-the-voice-lead-monday-as-american-country-awards-stumble.html
