NPH Talks Directing “How I Met Your Mother” Episode

Actor, singer, host, magician, and now director. Neil Patrick Harris tells TV Guide Magazine about his behind-the-camera work on the January 18 installment of How I Met Your Mother. In the episode, Marshall (Jason Segel) tries to convince Lily (Alyson Hannigan) that his colleague (guest star Amanda Peet) hit on him.

Was it hard to be an actor in a scene you were directing?
It was very strange. I was doing a scene in the bar with Jason and Josh Radnor [who plays Ted], and I’m thinking, “Great take. Love that. Oh, we should speed that part up a little bit.” Then I had to quickly think, “Wait, it’s my line.” I was very happy to not be in many scenes.

How did the cast respond?
They were so nice and were really on their game, both professionally and personally. They had my back, so it was a lovely week.

Did you have past experience that helped prepare you for this?
I directed some theater, but not on a giant scale. I was an observing director on NYPD Blue and Murder, She Wrote.

I’ve done my share of watching, but this was the first opportunity I had to pay the money and get my DGA card.
Is directing what you really want to do?

Indeed. I think it’s a great way to spend your days. I enjoy it more than acting, quite frankly. The actor works really hard for approval of others, which is fine. I’ve done it for many years, but it’s certainly fun to be on the other side. As a director, you work on the script, preproduction, casting, the shoot, editing, testing…it’s just a much more involved process. No disrespect to acting. I love to do it, and I hope to do it forever.

Will you direct more HIMYM episodes?
I hope so. Probably not this season, but it worked out well, so maybe other shows here or there. Maybe I’ll get off my rump and write and direct a film. I love Christopher Guest. I aspire to that type of movie someday.

Really, what can’t you do in the entertainment industry?
Give me something to try to do and I’ll see what I can make of it. It’s a great business. I’m a huge fan of the process of it all.

“How I Met Your Mother” Spoiler

Ask Ausiello posted a “How I Met Your Mother” spoiler:

Question: I thought the HIMYM smoking episode was hilarious, but does Alyson Hannigan really smoke? —Joe
Ausiello:
In a word, God, no! (Okay, two words.) “The smoking episode was horrible to shoot,” says the actress. “It was a funny script, but faking all that smoking was murder on my throat and eyes. They were fake cigarettes, but it was still really gross to us non-smokers.” More appealing to Hannigan is the idea of giving Lily and Marshall a baby. “I actually wouldn’t mind being pregnant on the show at some point,” she says. “And I think these characters are getting to an age where that just starts happening naturally. But it would certainly hinder the bar scenes. Pregnant woman in the bar drinking? Not so [funny]. Then the baby would get there and we’d have to figure out what to do with it all the time. It would separate Lily and Marshall from the group too much [which] would interrupt the camaraderie, which is the cornerstone of HIMYM. So I think, in the end that is what is truly stalling the baby. But if we get enough seasons, it would have to happen eventually.”

CBS Tops Monday Night Comedy Block

On the night “How I Met Your Mother” celebrated its 100th episode, CBS’ spotlight sitcoms continued to be “The Big Bang Theory” and “Two and a Half Men,” which powered the Eye to a Monday primetime victory among viewers 18-49 and overall.
Fox finished second in the demo Monday and won the 8 p.m. timeslot thanks to “House” (4.6 rating/12 share in 18-49, 12.2 million viewers overall, according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen). ABC drew a solid performance from its two-hour presentation of “The Bachelor” (3.6/9, 10.5 million) — the most-watched second episode in the franchise since 2003.

“Mother” (3.0/10, 9.8 million) had its best numbers in the demo since April. It was followed on CBS at 8:30 p.m. by “Accidentally on Purpose” (3.2/8, 8.5 million).

NBC’s “Chuck” (2.6/7, 7.3 million), kicking off its third season with its third episode in two nights, virtually matched its Sunday numbers, continuing to show improvement over season two with its best numbers since its 3-D broadcast nearly a year ago.

At 9 p.m., “Two and a Half Men” (5.4/13, 17.3 million) and “Big Bang” (5.7/14, 15.8 million) dominated, with “Bang” achieving series highs in the demo and overall. That topped a special airing of “Fringe” (2.8/7, 7.8 million), the second hour of “Bachelor” and NBC’s “Heroes” (2.1/5, 4.7 million), which had its lowest-ever rating for a firstrun episode.

CBS’ “CSI: Miami” (3.6/10, 13.5 million) took home the 10 p.m. trophy, ahead of ABC’s “Castle” (2.6/7, 9.5 million). Despite (or perhaps because of) all the publicity surrounding the show, NBC’s first airing of “The Jay Leno Show” (1.5/4, 4.4 million) since Sunday’s announcement that the comedian would be moving back to latenight next month showed a slight bump, with its highest Monday 18-49 rating in the past 13 weeks.

Neil Wants Betty White on ‘HIMYM’

Rachel Bilson. Stacy Keibler. Carrie Underwood. How many hot girls can one show handle?! At least one more if you ask How I Met Your Mother’s resident ladies man, Neil Patrick Harris.

“I still want Betty White. How awesome would it be if Barney Stinson was totally macking on Betty White? Come on,” teased NPH.

I caught up with the fabulous folks of HIMYM Wednesday night when the show was honored by the Paley Center for Media, and Josh Radnor, Alyson Hannigan, Jason Segel, and Cobie Smulders all answered your burning fan Qs. Are we about to meet the elusive mom? Are Lily and Marshall baby-bound? Will Robin and Barney ever reunite? (Source)
