Barney Nails It on 'How I Met Your Mother'On the latest episode of 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) finds himself in a slightly sticky situation. Barney finds himself trapped between two sexy girls who believe that he is "Neil Armstrong" -- who is apparently either an astronaut or a famous cyclist. (Possibly a small confusion with Lance Armstrong is happening here.)

How I Met Your Mother, Jennifer LopezIt's gotta be tough turning down Jennifer Lopez, a.k.a. Anita on 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS). Especially if you're Barney.

But even when she lured him in with the promise of getting lucky -- forget about the twelfth date; she'll do it right now – he stuck to his guns.

And is it just us, or is J-Lo everywhere lately? Talk about a workaholic, and the mom of two shows no signs of slowing down. 'The Back-Up Plan' arrives in theaters April 23.

Sneak Peek: Carrie Underwood on 'How I Met Your Mother'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 23rd 2010 1:28PM
Carrie Underwood is rather beautiful, isn't she? She's looks really great in this clip from the March 1 'How I Met Your Mother.' She plays a woman who figures in several fantasies that Barney (naturally) has.

Who knows if the 'American Idol' winner is a good actress or not, but we do know from this clip that 'How I Met Your Mother' can fit in several erection jokes in about 30 seconds.

Call Barney Stinson!

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 8th 2010 10:29AM
Barney Super Bowl adThe Super Bowl had no shortage of clever ads. Some of the most surprising were the ads for CBS shows, particularly 'The Late Show with David Letterman'. However, there was also an ad starring Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson, his character from 'How I Met Your Mother'.

Using an ad campaign that can be ironically described as cerebral and abstract, the ad had Barney in the crowd of the Super Bowl showing a sign with an 877 number and telling the ladies to call him. Supposedly there will be a follow-up to this situation on the next episode.

How I Met Your Mother, BarneyOh, Barney. You go right ahead. Keep thinking that your friends sit around and talk about how awesome you are every time you're out of earshot. The truth is, only we out here in our living rooms know how awesome you are. Well, and you, of course.

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest tramps

by Kona Gallagher, posted Mar 16th 2009 2:30PM
kate austen lostYou've gotta admit: tramps are fun. Their boozy, often promiscuous antics are the life of any party. Whether you're cheering them on or witnessing their antics with horror, tramps make any situation interesting. The same goes for TV shows. From Blanche DuBois to, well, most of The Real World cast members after season 3 or so, the television landscape has been filled with entertainingly trampy characters.

They may steal your husband, dance on a bar, or just generally leave a path of destruction in their wake. Whatever it is, it's sure to be memorable. For this reason, TV tramps are not to be looked down upon; they are to be revered. So consider this list a tribute: a tribute to TV's biggest tramps. May they never reexamine the path their life has taken.

TV Squad Ten: TV's top second bananas

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 16th 2009 11:09AM
Barney Fife (Don Knotts)So what's a second banana? Well they're certainly not second best. No, in fact they're often the main reason to tune into a particular show. Not because the show's major plotlines revolve around them, in fact they generally don't, but because they liven up every scene they're in. Virtual show-stealers, a good second banana can turn a generic sitcom or drama into television gold. The ultimate wingman on television, there was no greater second banana than my man Barney Fife, brilliantly played by Don Knotts on The Andy Griffith Show, and later Mayberry R.F.D.

When it came time to put together this list, I wondered if I'd be able to find ten viable and qualified bananas on the airwaves today. But I guess I needn't have worried. It looks like Barney was an inspiration (in more ways than one) to the current crop of second bananas. They litter their peels all over the television landscape, leaving us to trip over in laughter time and time again at their antics. But how do they stack up? Who's the biggest fruit in the tree? There's only one way to find out!

TV Squad Ten: The coolest characters on TV now

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 9th 2009 2:28PM
MargWhat is cool? Can you define that thing, that quality that makes certain characters seem like they're more with it than everyone around them? Maybe cool is a state of being, not a thing you can pick up by wearing Armani or drinking Grey Goose or driving a BMW.

As I was looking around the current crop of television shows, I found ten characters who seem to capture the essence of cool -- whether they know it or not. After the jump, we count them down.

TV Squad Ten: Most outrageous characters on TV

by Debra McDuffee, posted Jan 6th 2009 11:02AM
Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother

Random House defines outrageous as highly unusual or unconventional; extravagant; remarkable. It's as though they've been watching TV, and wrote their definition to fit some of the crazy characters on television shows today.

Oh, don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining. I love these larger-than-life characters, played to perfection by the talented actors who grace these roles. Some fit in perfectly with their surroundings, others stand out like a sore thumb amongst castmates. One thing they all have in common, though, is that watching them is pure entertainment.

Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker on The Mentalist)

Jane doesn't quite have the social graces to blend into society, and that's why I love him. The frumpy suits, the obnoxious antics, and the constant pushing of the envelope make for some good TV. From card counting in the casino to reading Lisbon's mind; hypnotizing suspects to making a sandwich in a victim's home, Jane's done it all. Unconventional, to say the least.

How I Met Your...bestseller? The Bro Code and more Mother news

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 23rd 2008 4:24PM
How I toastHow awesome is this? Barney's official list of how men should interact with each other in pursuit of conquest of the opposite sex,The Bro Code, is going to be published for real. Barney Stinson, the most awesome womanizer on How I Met Your Mother, has referred to this compendium on the show and now The Bro Code will be for sale in bookstores in late November, just in time for Christmas sales.

Neil Patrick Harris, the embodiment of Barney, is not writing the book. That'll be done by co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas with Matthew Kuhn, the staff writer who is responsible for Barney's blog. Barney, as fans of the show know, is nothing if not prolific and legen -- wait for it -- dary when it comes to knowing the rules, the rights and wrongs, in bagging the babes.

Six TV characters with whom I'd like to share July 4th - VIDEO

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 4th 2008 10:04AM
Gilmore dinerSo, did you hear that they did a poll they did to determine which presidential candidate people would like to hang out with at a barbecue? Obama won 52 to 45 percent over McCain, which may not mean very much in the long run, but the day before July 4th it made news.

The thought of barbecues and July 4th parties got me thinking about which TV characters with whom I'd like to spend Independence Day. I wouldn't want them here at my place, though, I want to go to their places. I have high expectations, too, and a vivid imagination.

Here's the six TV characters who could expect me to join them to watch the rockets red glare -- if only they were real live folks and not just my fictional faves.

RedEye readers love Benjamin Linus but not Don Draper

by Bob Sassone, posted May 12th 2008 12:05PM

Jack McBrayerAs we told you last week, RedEye is in the middle of their annual Best Character on Television tournament, and now we're into the second round. It looks like some strong favorites have emerged, while some fan favorites have been voted off the island.

That wouldn't include Don Draper from Mad Men (who lost to Jermaine and Bret from from Flight of the Conchords), Morgan Grimes from Chuck (who lost to Michael Scott from The Office), or Captain Jack Harkness from Torchwood. He actually lost to Herbert from Family Guy. That has to be embarrassing.

CBS press tour party - or making peace with How I Met Your Mother - TCA report

How I Met Your Mother

Practically the entire CBS prime time line up was attending the all-stars outdoor party on the Wadsworth Theatre Great Lawn in Brentwood, Calif. on Thursday night.

But I only had one objective: make peace with the gang from How I Met Your Mother (and TVSquad readers) for missing the informal panel at Wednesday's TCA presentation attended by Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) and creators/executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.

Two Grey's Anatomy characters get their own blogs

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 6th 2006 6:34PM
grey's anatomyMinor characters, sadly. Nurse Debbie and Joe the Bartender will be blogging during this season of Grey's Anatomy. They're blogging as the characters, mind you, not as the actors. The idea, according to ABC, is to blog about what's happening in between episodes. In the case of Joe, he'll be blogging about what the doctors are talking about at the bar. Cool, but I think the best character blog for Grey's would either be Cristina or Dr. Bailey.
