Buffy fans, rejoice!
Oz Seth Green Will soon reunite with Willow Alyson Hannigan as a guest star on How I Met Your Mother.
Green will appear on the sitcom as Daryl LaCoutre, a man who considers Lily (Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) two of his best friends from college. Twelve years later, the pair run into him, but they have no clue who he is. LaCoutre apparently goes into stalker-sounding territory, as he is “creepily obsessed with having them [Lily and Marshall] in his life.”
The episode is tentatively schedule to air on CBS on December 10.
Until then, True Blood fans will want to tune into the show on November 12, when Joe Manganiello is set to begin his two episode arc on the hit series.

Neil Patrick Harris wants How I Met Your Mother to end after the current season.
The comedy returns this month for its eighth season and Neil - who plays Barney Stinson - says he and the rest of the cast are ready for the show to reach its conclusion.
"Our contracts end at [Season] eight, so it's one of those, you know, if they wanna do nine, they're welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on]. Cobie has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason makes a ton of movies, I'm anxious to move East and Josh is directing and acting in movies as well. So, we all are anxious to move forward," said Neil, who stars alongside Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan.
Neil also admits the only reason any of the cast will sign up for another series is if it will be incredibly lucrative for them to do so: "I think the only way I think a season nine or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right - that's the reality of it. We love the show, we love doing it - eight years is a long time and we're as happy a family as we've ever been."
AMC hit drama Mad Men was the big winner at the inaugural Critics' Choice Television Awards yesterday.
The TV series picked up Best Drama, while its stars John Hamm and Christina Hendricks won the Best Actor in a Drama and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama prizes respectively. Christina shared her accolade, however, with Margo Martindale of Justified.

A new year means a new TV schedule.
This week, we’ll see a number of familiar faces returning to primetime. On Monday, Brad Womack will play The Bachelor for a second time on ABC. The following day, Paula Abdul will come back to reality television with Live to Dance while Jane Badler will once again be featured in a series titled V.
As you will see from the schedule, Hellcats won’t be the only show airing on a new day. The Defenders will move to Fridays as will Fringe. Meanwhile, NBC has shuffled its Thursday night comedy lineup around.
We hope our detailed guide -- with information from the five major networks -- can assist you in the weeks to come. We’ve included the days, times and return/premiere dates for the midseason programs.
(NOTE: This schedule has been updated as of January 27. Don’t be surprised to see changes in the weeks to come.)

- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m.): "The friends learn more about Robin's past as Canadian teen star Robin Sparkles, and they encourage her to reunite with her former costar, Jessica Glitter." The reunion will spark the return of another old frenemy: Becky Bedazzle.
- Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9 p.m.): "Berta takes a few days off and Charlie falls for the woman who replaces her." He often feels attracted to women he pays.
- Hoarders (A&E, 10 p.m.): "A man threatens his wife with divorce if she doesn't clean." She panicked when he said he would leave her with the assets.
Has the tide gone down for CBS at 10:00? For the first time since its debut, Hawaii Five-0 was bested by Castle in the hour. ABC’s victory in that time slot helped the network take another double win (viewers and demos) on Monday.
- Dancing with the Stars (19.8 million, 4.1/10 in 18-49) was down slightly.
- House (9.5 million, 3.6/10) lost 1 million.
- How I Met Your Mother (8.5 million, 3.4/9) did about the same.
- Rules of Engagement (8 million, 3.0/8) gave up 500,000.
- Chuck (5.3 million, 1.9/5) was on par with last Monday.
- 90210 (1.8 million, 0/9/2) was off by 100,000.

FOX’s decision to quickly replace Lone Star with veteran Lie to Me was validated in the ratings last night. Unfortunately, the move really didn’t make a difference in the overall rankings. ABC was still the winner in both the viewers and demos thanks to reality hit Dancing with the Stars.
- Dancing with the Stars (20.1 million, 4.3/11 in 18-49) slipped by 1.2 million.
- House (10.5 million, 3.9/11) added on 300,000.
- How I Met Your Mother (8.6 million, 3.4/10) lost 500,000; Rules of Engagement (8.5 million, 3.0/8) grew by 300,000.
- Chuck (5.4 million, 1.9/5) remained steady.
- 90210 (1.9 million, 1.0/3) was down a tick.

- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m.): “When Ted turns down Barney’s offer for a building-design job, Barney tries to woo him with all of the seduction methods he uses on women.” This episode will launch the next chapter of the series: “How I Met Your Other Dad.”
- Gossip Girl (CW, 8 p.m.): “Dan is once again conflicted about his feelings for both Serena and Vanessa.” And once again, I’m conflicted as to why I’m still recording this show.
- House (FOX, 8 p.m.): “House and Cuddy go on a double date with Wilson and his girlfriend, Sam (Cynthia Watros).” House figured a night out on him could finally settle the whole “Your Girlfriend Was on the Bus Because of Me” awkwardness.
Are viewers already bored with the Monday schedule? Minus a few exceptions, the ratings chart this week was full of down arrows—including one for The Event, the series that has raised a lot of buzz for NBC. In the end, Dancing with the Stars’ ballroom action kept ABC on top of the viewers and the demos.

The first official night of the fall television season saw five new shows vying for our attention.

- House (10.7 million, 4.2/11) was down nearly 6 million from last fall.
