I truly appreciate and am grateful for your support while I take this time to focus on my children and continue to evolve with my fans. Evolve or evaporate."
  • "Sesame Street" meets "The Newsroom," "The Avengers" and "The Hunger Games" as Elmo, Cookie Monster and Grover adorably parody our more adult entertainment fare. [EW]

  • Our dream shindig list has expanded: Sofia Vergara would definitely be invited, but we'd also want the bromance of John Krasinski and Justin Theroux to be in attendance so they could serenade us with their rendition of "Call Me, Maybe," like they did at Jimmy Fallon's post-Emmys party. [Us Weekly]
  • Steven Spielberg might have found a leading lady in Anne Hathaway, as she's said to be in talks for his adaptation of the sci-fi story "Robopocalypse." Thoughts? [THR]

Sean Lowe is the new 'Bachelor'

We heard rumors back in July that Sean Lowe would be the next to look for love on ABC's "The Bachelor," and the gossip hounds got this one right.

ABC announced Tuesday that Lowe, who competed for Emily Maynard's heart on the last season of "The Bachelorette" and lost out to Jef ("with one F") and Arie, is giving reality show romance another try with the 17th season of "The Bachelor."

Jon Cryer on being mistaken for Matthew Broderick

Actor Jon Cryer may be best known for his role as Alan Harper on CBS’ "Two and a Half Men," especially now that he's won an outstanding lead actor in a comedy Emmy for the part. (Congrats on your second Emmy, Jon!)

But it's fair to say the actor's also wooed audiences in classic '80s hits ... and flops.

When iReporter Andy Clinton recently asked Cryer about playing Lex Luthor's idiot nephew, Lenny, in 1987’s “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace,” the actor acknowledged it may not have been truly Oscar-worthy cinema.

'How I Met Your Mother': That's nice. Now who's the Mother?

After watching the season premiere of "How I Met Your Mother" on Monday, I realized that I'll most likely find the mother of my future children before Ted Mosby does (Vegas actually has me going off at 4-to-2 odds).

Then again, all I have to deal with is fate, chemistry, luck, mathematical probability and guys who have great abs, like Robin's new boyfriend.

Ted, on the other hand, has to deal with a show that refuses to get to the point.

Mark McGrath marries girlfriend after 18 years

Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath and girlfriend Carin Kingsland have taken the next step in their long-term relationship and have tied the knot.

A rep for McGrath tells CNN that the musician married Kingsland, 39, on Monday "in a small ceremony with family and friends."

McGrath, 44, and his new wife told People magazine that the wedding arrived after "18 years of breakups, makeups, beautiful twins and an unwavering love that provided some pretty damn good song lyrics." The couple's twins, 2-year-old Lydon and Hartley, were on hand as the ring bearer and the flower girl, respectively.

McGrath met Kingsland in 1994 at the Viper Room in Los Angeles, and the rocker later proposed there on New Year's Eve in 2009. It's the first marriage for both.
