The fourth annual Critics' Choice Television Awards were held on Thursday evening in Beverly Hills, and some of our favorite shows took home the top prizes. Well, most of them. House of Cards got totally shut out and some of our other guilty pleasures didn't make the cut...

Orange Is The New Black won Best Comedy Series while Breaking Bad beat out True Detective for Best Drama Series, but Matthew McConaughey took home the prize for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his work on the hit HBO show, and as always, he humbly accepted his award:

Report: Michael Strahan Joins GMA

Could he be the savior for the flailing show?

Michael Strahan is expected to join the cast of Good Morning America on a part-time basis, multiple outlets report.

The former football player won't be allowing his new gig to interfere with his top priority, though, which is co-hosting Live! With Kelly and Michael with Kelly Ripa.

The 42-year-old athlete is joining the morning program during a time of transition. Longtime weatherman Sam Champion recently left his position for The Weather Channel, and co-anchor Josh Elliot just announced his departure for NBC Sports.

Strahan will be joining Amy Robach, Lara Spencer, Ginger Zee, Robin Roberts, and George Stephanopoulos.

We think he sounds like a good fit!




How I Met Your Mother Series Finale Draws Angry Backlash From Twitter Fans

Apr 1, 2014 08:00 AM

More than a few people didn't like the ending!

How I Met Your Mother aired its series finale last night, and while some fans enjoyed it, it seems like the majority were shocked with the plot and underwhelmed.

Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) finally met The Mother (Cristin Milioti), and it was revealed that they married, had babies, and parted ways when she got sick and died, but what show watchers really took was Robin (Cobie Smulders) divorcing Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), since creators had spent the majority of last season developing their relationship!

Ted finally ends up telling his children the story of how he met their mother, and then reveals how much he truly loved "Aunt Robin" the whole time before getting the courage to finally ask her out.

"I thought it was How I Met Your Mother, not "How I Went Back To Your Aunt Robin About Twenty Times" #HIMYM #HIMYMfinale," wrote one angry viewer.

"How we destroyed 9 years of character development in one 40 min episode #HIMYMfinale #HIMYM," wrote another.

We guess every finale gets a mixed reaction, but it seems HIMYM got more than they bargained for!

beharcrop230final.jpg She's saying goodbye!

Joy Behar is leaving The View after a sixteen year run on the daytime talk show, ABC confirms.

"Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning. We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season," the rep said in a statement.

The TV journalist is looking to move on to other projects, which include writing a play and doing standup. She also has her own shows on HLN and Current TV. On top of it all, she is rumored to be in talks with CNN president Jeff Zucker on an unnamed project.

We're sad to see her go, but at least we still have Barbara Walters!

Modern Family Settles Salary Dispute

Jul 30, 2012 09:50 AM

Modern-Family-Season-230.jpg The cast of Modern Family has finally ended their family feud!

After weeks of salary disputes, cancelled table reads, and tense negotiations, the six adult stars of the Emmy winning TV show have agreed in principle to new contracts with producer 20th Century Fox television.

Previously raking in an estimated $65,000 per episode, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara will now make a reported $150,000 per episode. With bonuses and back-end profits, the actors' salary will jump to an estimated $350,000 per episode. Although Ed O'Neill used to be the highest paid actor on the show, salaries are now pretty much even between the entire cast.

In exchange for the substantial raise, the cast has agreed to tack on another year to their seven season contracts and drop the lawsuit that was filed to void their pre-existing contracts.

"It's no surprise, but I'm of course thrilled and I cannot wait to get on stage Monday morning and start making the show again. It'll feel great, I'm sure everybody is going to be very relieved and I hope that it's the beginning of a great season. I feel really good about it. I'm very happy for my friends on the cast for their success, I really am," show co-creator Steve Levitan told THR.

In 2011 alone, Modern Family generated $164 million in advertising revenue for ABC.

The show can't go on without its stars, so hefty salaries were a small price to pay for our favorite family making their return to TV!

Regis Philbin has finally said farewell to Live! With Regis and Kelly after 28 years on the air.

With his co-host of 11 years Kelly Ripa sitting next to him, Philbin said:

    "For 28 years, millions of viewers have had the great fortune of starting their day with you. For 11 years, I have had the great fortune of starting my day sitting next to you. You took this soap actress and plopped her behind a desk and made her your partner in crime. My life is forever changed."

In response, Kelly told Regis, "I look forward to your next steps and hope they fill you with the joy you've filled all of us with all these years."

For his final words before the show ended, the 80-year-old host said the following to the audience:

    "This was the last chance I had in this business: To make it here in New York. I guess it was fate that it happened this way. I'll never be able to answer all the letters and messages that have poured in but I'll always remember spending these mornings with all of you. God bless you all and I hope I see you again real soon."

Farewell, Regis!
