'Good Wife,' 'Grey's Anatomy' exits: Dear TV, it's not you, it's them

It feels like every day brings news of another major character leaving one of our beloved shows. The recent influx started with Sandra Oh announcing that after 10 seasons, she was ready to say goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy. From there, we’ve had Paul Guilfoyle leaving CSI, Dan Bucatinsky leaving Scandal, Daniel Sharman leaving Teen Wolf, Claire Holt leaving The Originals, Josh Charles leaving The Good Wife, and really recently, even more Grey’s exits, to name a few.

But if television is at its best right now, with actors like Kevin Spacey and Matthew McConaughey joining the ranks of the small screen, then what is up with all the farewells? Was it something TV said?

I highly doubt it, but there’s a little something I’d like to say to TV. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Heart and souls

When it became obvious that Sam would set out on a solo adventure in this week’s Supernatural, I was hoping the time apart from Dean would be for something more than a case of the week. And I was not disappointed.

As Sam set off to look into a case about a mysterious rage hitting the residents of a small town, Dean stayed back to chase down leads on Abaddon’s whereabouts. Or so he said. Much of Dean’s booze-soaked staycation from hunting was spent working through apprehensions about what he’d have to do once Abaddon was found. After his first experience with the First Blade last week, in which we saw Cain-marked Dean approach the borders of Hulk town, Dean was dragging his feet a bit in his quest to find the ginger demon. He never said all of this, of course, because he’s Dean. According to Dean, Dean’s always fine. But as Crowley would say, bollocks.

'NCIS' react: What did you think of the New Orleans crew?

Washington D.C. crossed paths with The Big Easy on tonight’s episode of NCIS, which doubled as a backdoor pilot for a Louisiana-based spin-off.

In the episode, we met the small but mighty team of NCIS: New Orleans: Scott Bakula as leader Agent Pride, Lucas Black as hard southern gent Agent Lasalle and Zoe McClellan as NOLA transplant Agent Brody. CCH Pounder played the New Class’s medical examiner. Together with the regular batch of NCIS players, they worked the case of a dead congressman who was once a member of the Fed 5, the nickname given to a legendary group of agents that once included Pride, Gibbs and the late Mike Franks.

James Van Der Beek remembers 'Dawson's Creek', 'Varsity Blues' and the role that got away

You know James Van Der Beek, from, well, being James Van Der Beek. The former star of Dawson’s Creek played a fictionalized version of himself on 2012’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, after adding a whole list of credits (like Varsity Blues, Rules of Attraction, and How I Met Your Mother) to his resume in addition to Dawson.

The Beek’s next role? Divorced doctor Will in CBS’s new sitcom Friends with Better Lives, premiering March 31. Before he shows off his comedy chops once again, Van Der Beek took a game look back at his most important roles — and the people who still hold a place in his heart, even after two decades in the biz.

The role my mom loves the most: Varsity Blues
“I think my mom was probably a Dawson fan, but it’s so funny — my mom’s favorite scene is the one in Varsity Blues where I give all the names for the different words for an erection. She just finds it really funny. The fact that I say ‘Pedro’ at the end of it, she just thought was hilarious. Quite frankly, I don’t want to discuss or think too much about why.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger tells Jimmy Fallon to 'Get to da choppa!' -- VIDEO

During his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Arnold Schwarzenegger proved why he’s a good sport.

In a QVC cooking show skit, Schwarzenegger took us all back to his Predator days with one line: “Get to da choppa!!!” Of course, this time, he was referring to a vegetable chopper instead of a helicopter — not to mention that he was wearing an apron — but who cares about the details, right? Once a Schwarzenegger, always a Schwarzenegger.

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: '...and it was legendary'

UPDATE: Recap is live! Monday’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, titled “The End of the Aisle,” was the series’ last new episode before next week’s hour-long season finale. Your full recap of tonight’s episode is on the way, but as the series prepares to wind down, we want to get the discussion going ASAP.

VOW-za, guys. Vow-za.

I’m moved. I’m smiling. I’m crying rivers of happy tears.

I always knew the writers of How I Met Your Mother could do a several things extremely well. Craft masterful inside joke, for example. Or create a catchphrase that somehow weaseled its way into ours everyday lives. But what am I going to miss most when this show takes its final bow next week? Basically the last four minutes of every episode that ever resonated with me.

This week, as the titled of the episode indicated, Barney and Robin finally reached the end of the aisle. They got married. But wrapped up into this long, long, long, long, long, long-awaited ceremony were lessons about love and honesty and bears. Ok, maybe just the first two were important.

I’ll back up…
