We were admittedly uncertain what to think when 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' unexpectedly imploded at the CBS upfronts, as what seemed like a shoe-in for pickup was rejected by the network, and was ultimately let go. Now, a new report suggests that 'HIMYM' creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will redevelop the spinoff for another season, but will series lead Greta Gerwig or the cast return?

Now that 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' seems to have fallen through, the CBS lineup looks a little bereft of anything we might normally follow. And now with CBS' acquisition of Thursday Night Football, the full fall 2014 schedule looks a little jumbled with 'The Big Bang Theory' filling in for 'HIMYM' Mondays, while 'Elementary' and others move to October to accommodate football.

Among the last, but certainly not least, the eye network CBS has officially gotten in on the Upfront 2014 game by releasing their schedule for the fall, and full trailers for the newest series.

The world of late-night talk shows seems more or less to have settled, now that Stephen Colbert will take the 'Late Show' from David Letterman and slotted 'Daily Show' alum Larry Wilmore to replace him in the 'Colbert Report' timeslot, but was Colbert really the network's first choice? 'How I Met Your Mother' alum Neil Patrick Harris says otherwise, claiming CBS first attempted to gauge his interest in taking over for Letterman.

Whereas CBS' decision to not move forward with 'HIMYM' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' proved pretty surprising, the fate of 'Two and a Half Men' was long overdue. The Ashton Kutcher comedy will indeed return for season 12 this fall, though the network finally confirmed that one of Chuck Lorre's flagship vehicles will come to a merciful end with a series finale thereafter.

Well, this is something of a surprise. Uncertain though we were at the prospect of 'How I Met Your Mother' living in on in the gender-flipped sequel series 'How I Met Your Dad,' it seems CBS has defied expectation to opt against picking up the series at least for now. So what went wrong that Greta Gerwig won't regale us for the next nine years with tales of 'How I Met Your Dad?'

Well, this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone. Despite the bad taste left in viewers' mouths by the 'How I Met Your Mother' series finale "Last Forever," spinoff series 'How I Met Your Dad' is almost guaranteed to carry on the torch this fall with a series order at CBS. Who's ready to have Greta Gerwig drag things out for another nine years?

The late-night landscape remains in upheaval, first by David Letterman's decision to retire from the 'Late Show,' followed by Stephen Colbert's ascension to the throne, and finally heir apparent Craig Ferguson's decision to leave the 'Late Late Show.' Controversy has proven to a minimum, but Letterman still stepped up to speak out on Ferguson's departure, while CBS may not yet court a replacement for some time.

Yesterday saw 'The Late Late Show' host Craig Ferguson announcing his imminent exit from the 10-year series in December, a move speculated to result from Stephen Colbert taking over David Letterman's 'Late Show,' where it seemed Ferguson had been overlooked. Now, video of Ferguson announcing his exit has arrived, while the 'Late Late Show' host insists his retirement has nothing to do with Letterman or Colbert.
