Good morning!

If you're still sad about Lip Service and think a glimpse of Ruta Gedmintas will cheer you up, the entire pilot for her new show Do No Harm is available online. Fair warning: She doesn't come on until about half way through. And she's straight.

The Aclu gets shit done! A lesbian-themed book was taken off the library shelves in Utah and the organization was able to put it right back. Now everyone can share in the delight that is In Our Mothers' House.

Gospel singer Gloria Muliro is the homophobe of the day. She went on Facebook to say she wanted to "expose" lesbians because, "It is very embarrassing, where have you ever seen a woman marrying another woman?" Why yes, I have. A few different times. Myself included!

We're at the closing of the year and I hope you all make sure to stay safe in celebrating the transition to 2013.

Here's more reason to feel optimistic about One Life to Live and All My Children coming back — Soap Opera Digest reports that Oltl has found a showrunner while Vincent Irizarry has signed up for the AMC revival.

Okay, for a channel that has seemed to decide its theme involves documenting the worst of our society (when aliens discover earth and try to figure out what happened to humanity, TLC will become The Learning Channel again, teaching the aliens how it all went wrong), a show about married women who compete in beauty pageants doesn't sound so bad.

• CBS’s How I Met Your Mother will return for a ninth season, ensuring that the sitcom will definitely overstay its already wavering welcome.

• The question as to whether or not Dan Stevens will return for the fourth season of Masterpiece Theatre’s Downton Abbey has been answered.

• AMC continues its dismal relationships with showrunners as The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara got the boot. This means that the zombie drama will be getting its third showrunner within four seasons — that’s a lot of creative disconnect.

• ABC shelved the rest of Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn’s canceled 666 Park Avenue until summer and is filling in the extra hour on Sunday with new episodes of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.

Ratings: Two and a Half Men Repeat Improves on Partners, Mob Doctor Ticks Up, Voice Hits a Low
CBS’ decision to pull Partners and swap in sitcom repeats on Monday at 8:30 promptly paid dividends: A warmed-over Two and a Half Men last night drew 6.4 million total viewers while scoring a 2.1 demo rating, improving on Partners‘ final performance by 17 percent.

That in turn teed up 2 Broke Girls (9.74 mil/3.4) for a gain of 6 percent, while Mike & Molly held steady-ish at 9.24 mil/2.9.

Opening CBS’ night, How I Met Your Mother was flat with 7.9 mil/3.0, while Hawaii Five-0 closed things with 8.8 mil/2.2, up 11 and 5 percent week-to-week.

10 Hilarious HD Seasons of "Friends" Help Us Remember Who the Stars of the Show Really Were

Every now and then a film or television series comes along that has a long-lasting impact on its respective genre and sets a benchmark studios attempt to duplicate and improve upon. In the case of TV, there’s no doubt Friends carries on in how networks choose sitcoms and the style of humor they shoot for. If you doubt Friends’ influence, just look at the proliferation of the ‘20 and 30-somethings hanging out’ ensemble comedy that we have today: How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, The New Girl, Community, and Happy Endings. And while each of these new iterations on that concept has its unique twist, none have quite achieved the massive following that David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, and Matt LeBlanc did as Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey. However, Friends wasn’t without fault, and its highs and lows are

'How I Met Your Mother': 'The Autumn of Breakups' and Victoria's underwhelming return

On the one hand, "How I Met Your Mother" gave Victoria a pretty good sendoff in Monday's (Nov. 5) episode: Her parting with Ted in "The Autumn of Breakups" was one of the more evenhanded, grown-up splits Ted has made with a non-Mother, non-Robin girlfriend in the show's history.

On the other hand, strong final scene aside, it's hard not to wonder why the show would make such a big deal out of Victoria's return only to under-use her so much.

As a whole, "The Autumn of Breakups" was not a very good episode of "Himym." The side stories -- Barney and his wing-dog, Marshall finding his inner Gayle King and Nick's tortured culinary catchphrases -- were scattershot at best, and the main story about Ted and Victoria realizing they weren't the ones for each other didn't feel like it had nearly enough foundation.

It's not that Victoria's request that Ted

'One Tree Hill's' Danneel Ackles reunites with Sarah Chalke on 'How To Live With Your Parents'

One of our "One Tree Hill" faves has landed another comedy guest spot. Danneel Ackles, who played mean-girl-with-a-heart-of-gold (as in gold digger) Rachel on the long-running CW series is set to appear on ABC's upcoming midseason comedy "How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)."

The series follows Sarah Chalke's character, single working mom Polly, as she's forced to move back home with her parents after her divorce. It's further complicated by the fact that her parents (played by Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett) are extremely eccentric, free-love, sexually liberated types... and Polly is determined to raise her daughter in a more structured way.

Ackles plays Olivia, who Polly befriends and decides to set up with Julian (Jon Dore)... Polly's ex-husband. Awkward! In the first episode, Julian is described as an "unemployed gambler with a pasty-white beer belly" -- so he's not exactly a catch.

‘Should They Or Shouldn’t They?’ An Imperative Question In TV Relationships

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

This year is the fifth season of ABC’s dramedy Castle, and one thing makes it stand out from the rest: Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic), after four seasons of romantic tension, are finally together.

“Will they or won’t they?” is the TV equivalent of “What came first: The chicken or the egg?” — everyone asks it, and no answer is for sure. But the question that should be asked more frequently in TV is, “Should they or shouldn’t they?”

Most series approach this crossroads. And many consequently fear the Moonlighting curse, which references the ABC’s 1980s crime drama and its decline in popularity once leads Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis got together.

NBC’s The Office seems to have recently faced the curse. Though the comedy still did well in the ratings following Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam’s

This week in television breakups
Ouch. This past week certainly hasn’t been easy for those of us who are a little too unhealthily involved in the lives of television characters. Glee, How I Met Your Mother and Grey’s Anatomy all had major relationship shake-ups, just a few weeks into the fall season. (Spoiler Alert! for this past week’s episodes ahead). On Monday, after an episode-long tease over who exactly would break up, Barney and Quinn called it quits over on How I Met Your Mother.
