When Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season Sunday night, fans will get to enjoy the latest adventures in the reign of King Joffrey Baratheon, a blond tyrant who rules Westeros with an ironfisted combination of petulance and sadism. To celebrate Joffrey's impending nuptials, we've given him a wedding gift: a list of the horrible TV children just as bad as himself. Maybe they can have a playdate – just leave the crossbows at home.

The Top 10 Things We Wouldn't Have Without David Letterman

Originally posted 04/05/2014 10:00AM

Over more than 30 years on the air, David Letterman went from the class clown of late night to one of its most respected icons.

In the '80s, Letterman's Midwestern snark and ironic sensibilities were considered groundbreaking in the comparatively staid world of Johnny Carson and Tom Snyder; now they've provided the groundwork for many of today's mainstream comedy trends. (Check out Letterman's 9 Most Unforgettable Late Show Moments.)

As Letterman prepares to step away from the desk for good in 2015, here's a look back at the 10 (could it have been any other number?) best things Letterman gave us:

See Game of Thrones Retold in Emoji Form

Originally posted 04/03/2014 10:00AM

[YOUTUBE "l0SYKT4FgGU"] The long wait for Game of Thrones is nearly over: The fourth season of the HBO fantasy series premieres Sunday night. But for fans who might need a refresher, one helpful YouTube user has come along with a summary of the show's first three seasons.

There's just one twist: It's entirely in emoji.

In "Game of Phones," the labyrinthine mythology of Westeros is reduced to a series of comical cartoons that neatly outline the characters and stakes at play in the series. (You will not be surprised to see that the skull features very prominently.)

See a Fan-Made How I Met Your Mother Ending That Rights All the Finale's Wrongs

Originally posted 04/03/2014 11:00AM

[EMBEDCODE {}] Monday night's finale of How I Met Your Mother was arguably the most disastrously received series ender since Lost. Its missteps were legion (spoiler alert) – killing off the Mother, throwing away the Barney-Robin relationship – but most complaints boiled down to the same source: Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were too in love with the road map they'd created years ago, to the detriment of the finale's emotional thrust.

Now one helpful fan has come along to undo all that bad work. Using a few simple edits, YouTube user Ricardo J. Dylan has given viewers the finish they wanted all along, one that preserves the series' romantic soul while jettisoning some of the finale's other … distractions.

Josh Elliott: Why I Left Good Morning America

Josh Elliott Says Leaving Good Morning America for NBC Sports Was 'Too Good to Pass Up'

Originally posted 04/02/2014 12:45PM

Josh Elliott says he did not leave Good Morning America for a higher salary.

"In the end, it had nothing to do with money," Elliott, 42, told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement, speaking for the first time since announcing he is exiting the No. 1 morning show for a job at NBC Sports.

Though the popular news anchor declined to comment on specific figures – a source says ABC offered him $5 million but he asked for $10 million, while another source says Elliott will be paid about $4 million a year by NBC – he said: "There were two great offers on the table, and it certainly was a difficult choice to make. I feel I made the best one."

Michael Strahan Says on Live! That He Is Going to Good Morning America

Originally posted 04/01/2014 10:45PM

Michael Strahan may soon join Good Morning America, he confirmed on Wednesday morning Live! – with some reservations.

Though ABC declined to comment, a source confirms to PEOPLE that ABC News has been talking to the former New York Giants defensive end, 42, for months.

Strahan, speaking to his Live! co-host Kelly Ripa on the air Wednesday, said the news about his joining the top-rated morning show – which he said he found out when he checked his text messages after a screening Tuesday night – was "surprising."

So, pressed Ripa, are you going?

"If I read the papers, I am," he said. "But this is my home," he added, assuring her that when the GMA gig kicks in, he will still costar with her on the 9 a.m. show.

As Amy Robach takes over as Good Morning America's news anchor with the departure of Josh Elliott, the journalist, who was diagnosed with breast cancer five months ago, has already proven cancer – and chemo – can't keep her down.

Just last week, Robach, 41, completed the sixth of eight chemo treatments, and was back at work the next day. "She has barely missed work," a source tells PEOPLE.

"Amy considers getting up every morning and having something to look forward to a gift," adds the source. "It's a much needed distraction from her treatment."

Forget simply pressing delete. Embattled late night host Stephen Colbert went to much more dramatic measures to blow up the Twitter account that sparked last week's #CancelColbert social media movement.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone appeared on The Colbert Report Monday night and channeled Wile E. Coyote as he helped destroy the @ColbertReport Twitter handle for the Comedy Central host.

Colbert's virtual nightmare began Thursday when a Tweet originating from @ColbertReport – a promotional account for the show – angered many in the Asian-American community and prompted the hashtag that trended on Twitter late last week into the weekend.
