Conan O'Brien unveils explosive promo

If the explosive promo for the "Conan" show is any indication, host Conan O'Brien's new gig is going to be a real blast.

"Instead of doing yet another promo for my new show coming this November on TBS, I'm going to give you guys what you really want: top-notch entertainment," he says in the opener. "I went out and I bought this 1969 Dodge Dart. I'm going to get in it, [and] I'm going to drive right off that cliff into Devil's Drop Canyon, a 900-foot sheer fall."

Jan is back on 'The Office'

For Melora Hardin, returning to "The Office" after a two year absence was like coming back home.

"In a weird way it didn’t feel like I had been gone that long," she told CNN. "It was sort of nice to see everyone, and say hello and all the sets look the same."

Hardin is returning in her role as Jan - Michael Scott's former boss and former girlfriend - on Thursday night's episode, along with several of his previous flames.

Neil Patrick Harris making film directorial debut

Neil Patrick Harris is getting ready for "Aaron and Sarah."

No, those aren't the names of the twins that the 37-year-old actor is expecting with partner David Burtka, but the new indie movie with which he'll make his directorial debut.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the romantic comedy is set to star actors Emma Roberts ("Scream 4") and Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are Alright"). The story focuses on a geek who befriends a popular girl when they are both high school freshmen. The duo's relationship deepens over the course of their school years, as the two see each other through four proms and a funeral.

Harris has been quite a busy guy this year. Besides starring in the hit CBS series "How I Met Your Mother," he also hosted the Emmys, did a guest spot on "Glee," appeared in a Hollywood Bowl staging of "Rent" and filmed the live-action movie version of the animated classic "The Smurfs."

Here's hoping that making a movie with Roberts and Hutcherson is easier than working with little blue men who are three apples high.
