  • Now that Rihanna's confirmed to take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards - along with Frank Ocean! Color us "we'll be watching" - we're just waiting for MTV to announce that Drake and Chris Brown will also perform so that we can all look for hints of leftover animosity and speculate about backstage tension. [MTV]
  • If you ever doubted your loyalty to "How I Met Your Mother," this'll likely make it easier to commit: Former "SNL"-er Abby Elliot will bring the crazy as Janeane on the new season, starting September 24 on CBS. [EW]
  • If you tune in to "Good Morning America" on ABC, prepare to see a lot less of Robin Roberts (we know, that makes us sad too): The co-host has announced that she'll begin her extended medical leave starting September 3. [People]
  • You've got questions about Sunday's "True Blood" finale? Alan Ball has a few interesting answers - including what, exactly, Bill has become. [TVLine]
