Neil Patrick Harris, David BurtkaAre you ready to hear about Neil Patrick Harris' bedroom activities? His partner, David Burtka, will co-star in 'Foursome,' a sex-themed talk show set to air on E!. Sex talk will be a very big part of the equation.

"It's bound to be the hottest, hippest show on E! since 'Chelsea Lately,'" one insider who has seen the pilot told PopEater.

What will make it so hot is the fact that Burtka, along with ex-'American Idol' singer Kimberly Caldwell and two others, will be talking frankly about their own sex lives. This won't be 'Loveline,' folks.

Neil Patrick Harris, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Craig Ferguson was trying to be polite throughout Neil Patrick Harris's theatrical tale on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), but you could tell his interest was waning. Harris was talking about the opportunity he got to see the musical version of 'Beauty and the Beast' before it had even premiered.

"A woman was there smoking a cigarette outside and she said, 'Hey, you want to come in and watch the dress rehearsal?'" Harris said.

"That happens to me outside sex clubs," Ferguson replied, bringing it back into his area of interest. But all he needed to do was be patient, because there was a punchline coming.

Ellen and Neil Patrick Harris Recreate Scenes From Oscar-Nominated MoviesIn order to show that "acting really isn't that hard," Ellen DeGeneres and Neil Patrick Harris recreate dramatic moments from some of this year's Oscar nominees on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Joshua Jackson, FringeJoshua Jackson wants YOU! ... to watch 'Fringe' tonight.

If you're a fan of the show, you should probably do as the man says and tune in this evening.

Following a second dramatic ratings dip for his cult hit show that Fox doomed to the Friday death slot, the star has started to campaign for fans to watch the show on Fridays, as opposed to later in the weekend on their DVRs.

"I'm a positive person in general, but we really need our 'Fringe' fans to tune in and watch us on Fridays," Jackson told Entertainment Weekly. "We did good when we first moved, but last week we did not have a good week, ratings wise. It is going to take the people that like the show to watch the show and start the campaign and show their support if they want to see us stick around for another season."

Katy Perry Promotes 'How I Met Your Mother' Guest Spot With Neil Patrick Harris

by Jean Bentley, posted Jan 31st 2011 6:30PM
Neil Patrick Harris, Katy Perry, How I Met Your MotherTo promote Katy Perry's upcoming guest spot on 'How I Met Your Mother,' Neil Patrick Harris tweeted these promos he filmed with Perry. What's weird is that instead of clips from the show, they're 'Saturday Night Live'-style promos, with Perry announcing her appearance and Harris making funny quips as himself (but channeling his character, Barney).

It's all very strange -- couldn't the show have released some actual footage? Or is Perry's acting that questionable? Still, we're excited for next week's episode, especially since HIMYM is a repeat tonight. View the clip after the jump.

Neil Patrick Harris and Eric BraedenWarning: If you're going to screw over Neil Patrick Harris, prepare to be admonished in front of the world. Or at least the Twitterverse.

The 'How I Met Your Mother' star did not hesitate to publicly state his opinion of actor Eric Braeden, who bowed out of a guest appearance on the CBS comedy at the last minute. Braeden played Robin Scherbatsky, Sr. on a 2008 episode of the show, and was apparently scheduled to reprise his role in an upcoming episode.

"Eric Braeden is a D-Bag. the actor, (Robin's dad) agreed to a cameo, then last night bailed, saying the part wasn't 'substantial' enough," Harris tweeted. "We've recast with Ray Wise, a fantastic actor who makes any part 'substantial'. Super excited to welcome him to the family!"

Neil Patrick Harris Asks 'The Talk' Ladies for Parenting Advice (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Nov 22nd 2010 7:27PM
Oh, how the times have changed. Used to be you'd ask friends and relatives for parenting advice and they'd say stuff like "If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders," or "Children should be seen and not heard," or "Spare the rod and spoil the child."

Nowadays it's all materialism. So when Neil Patrick Harris asked the ladies of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) for advice on raising his twins, the hosts volunteered products and gadgets, not words.

Each of the hosts gave him a gift, including a manbag and a pair of baby rockers.

Here's our free advice to Neil Patrick Harris: Don't ask the ladies of 'The Talk' for advice.

Naomi Campbell Joins Many Stars for 'Fashion's Night Out'Everyone was on the streets for 'Fashion's Night Out 2010' (Tue., 10PM ET on CBS). Well, everyone except viewers at home, Neil Patrick Harris helpfully pointed out. For one evening, "New York City is one big runway," said Harris, and he offered plenty of celeb sitings and fashion footage for us couch potatoes.

The fashion industry's open house took place across the world -- from Milan, Moscow and London to New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles. Halle Berry was one of many attendees. "I care about our economy, and a night like this sort of infuses some energy into our fashion industry," Berry said.

Other A-listers on the scene (and in this clip) included Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez (launching yet another fragrance), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Naomi Campbell and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Emmy Picks: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy

The nominees for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for the 2010 Emmys
With the Emmy voting closed and the awards just over a week away, it's high time for me to resume giving you who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

I've already given my picks for the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy awards. Now we move on to the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy category, where the competition is fierce... especially if you're on 'Modern Family.'

Nominees:
Ty Burrell, 'Modern Family'
Chris Colfer, 'Glee'
Jon Cryer, 'Two and a Half Men'
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 'Modern Family'
Neil Patrick Harris, 'How I Met Your Mother'
Eric Stonestreet, 'Modern Family'

Who will win:
This is an extremely tough category to handicap, mainly because pretty much everyone in the category -- except for Cryer, who should submit himself as a lead actor -- deserves the award. However, because of the Academy's tendency to keep giving the award to the same people year in and year out (this award should be called the John Larroquette Award for the number of times he won it when he was on 'Night Court'), I'm going to have to painfully say that Cryer still has a good shot of taking it this year, especially if the three 'Modern Family' actors split people's votes.
