Neil Patrick Harris will present the 2013 Emmy Awards. The How I Met Your Mother actor - who previously hosted the awards in 2009 - will take over for the ceremony on September 26 this year, just a few months after he presents the Tony Awards in June.
"I couldn't be more honored and excited to be hosting this year's Emmy Awards. And what perfect timing - I'll just do the exact same script I'm about to use for the Tonys. 'And the Emmy for Best Revival of a Musical goes to Breaking Bad!' See, told you it works," he said.
CBS Entertainment chief Nina Tassler added, "Neil is the quintessential host - engaging, entertaining and a true showman - with a passion for celebrating the medium we all love. We're thrilled for him to return for CBS's broadcast of the Emmy Awards."
Neil has hosted the Tonys twice, with one stint in 2009 earning him and the production team an Emmy Award.
Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer were shocked by Angus T. Jones' meltdown.
The 19-year-old actor - who stars on Two And A Half Men with Ashton and John - launched a tirade against the sitcom calling it "filth" in a video with his church pastor and while Jon was surprised, he felt living through former co-star Charlie Sheen's falling out with creator Chuck Lorre left him better prepared for it than Ashton.
"It is surreal to be part of several internet s**t storms. When the latest one happened Ashton came up to me and he looked like he had seen a ghost and he was like, 'Did you hear about Angus?' and I was like, 'He is ok?' He said, 'Sort of,' and he showed me the video. And as I said having become a veteran of the internet s**t storm afterward I just looked at Ashton and said, 'Well do you think he still wants to go in on the crew gift?' It's just been one after the other. My life has taken a lot of strange turns. Mostly I'm just glad everybody is still alive," Jon said.
Michael Jackson's son has landed a job as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
Prince Michael Jackson, 16 - whose father died from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - is hoping the job will lead to a long career in the entertainment industry: "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor. I've been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed."
While Prince's first interview was with James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi for their new movie,Oz the Great and Powerful, he is hoping his next one will be with Peter Jackson as he loved to watch the director's movies with his dad. "Peter Jackson, I love his movies. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and King Kong. I just love the way he shoots [and how] he brings things and depicts it back to life. I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together," he explained.
If there's anything that Sarah Michelle Gellar learned from her stint as Buffy, it's that she shouldn't give up - and give up, she hasn't.
A year after the demise of her CW twin thriller Ringer, Gellar hasn't let its cancellation stop her from returning to the small screen in a big way. The 35 year-old has signed on to join veteran comedian Robin Williams for the upcoming CBS comedy Crazy Ones.
The mother of two will star as Williams' driven, organized daughter set against the workplace backdrop of advertising.
Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley will pen the series pilot and serve as an executive producer alongside Dean Lorey, Bill D'Elia, John Montgomery.
No word yet as to when the pilot begins production.
Angus T. Jones is "grateful for the extraordinary opportunity" to star in Two And A Half Men.
The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.
"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
Miley Cyrus was "shocked" by Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones' rant about the show. The 19-year-old actor - who makes $350,000 for playing Jake Harper in the sitcom - called the show "filth" and begged viewers to stop watching and guest star Miley was surprised by her on-screen love interest's comments.
"Miley was shocked just like everyone else who saw the video. But Miley doesn't judge anyone and she of course wants Angus and everyone who works on the show to be happy and continue doing the show because she's a huge fan and she likes guest appearing. She had the time of her life when she worked with Angus and she even thinks he's hot and incredibly sweet. She even had fun hanging on set and filming with Ashton [Kutcher] and Jon [Cryer]," a source said.

Miley Cyrus was "on fire" when she filmed Two and a Half Men.
The singer-and-actress recently made a cameo appearance in the sitcom and though the show's star Jon Cryer wasn't initially confident she would be a success, he was thrilled when she stepped in front of the camera and nailed her part:
"She plays a motor-mouth character, so they gave her page-long monologues. She was lovely, and we had a great time. All week, she was on book [looking at the script] which is understandable. But even when we got within two hours of the show, she was still on book. We were thinking, 'Oh no, Miley better bring it!' And then we did it in front of the audience, and Miley brought it! Miley was just on fire and fantastic."
Miley recently had her hair cut into a daring short crop and Jon thinks her new look is fantastic. "I know her haircut is very controversial, but I lay on the side of 'I love it.' I think she looks fantastic," he said.
Dina Lohan wants to do another interview with Dr. Phil McGraw. The mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan wants a second chance to sit down with the chat show host following her disastrous appearance on his show earlier this week, according to TMZ.
Dina - who has been labeled "the worst mother in America" - is said to be eager to prove she is not a complete train wreck. She was slammed by Dr. Phil as a "phony and inauthentic" for appearing intoxicated and making rude gestures during the recent interview.
Sources close to Dina say she was extremely emotional and does not believe the interview was a fair representation of her character. The mother-of-four is reported to have reached out to Dr Phil for a do-over. It is not yet known whether the no-nonsense talk show host - who admitted to Dina that he was unimpressed with her attitude - is interested in speaking to her on camera again.
