Amy Robach Considers Work a 'Much Needed Distraction,' Source Says

Originally posted 03/31/2014 05:00PM

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."

Stephen Colbert Destroys His Show's Twitter Account After Controversy

Originally posted 04/01/2014 01:00PM

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.

How I Met Your Mother Creator Defends Series Ending, Thanks Fans

Originally posted 04/01/2014 02:15PM

The co-creator of How I Met Your Mother defended the hit show's controversial finale Monday night, thanking fans despite their split reactions.

In a series of Tweets, Craig Thomas responded to viewers' anger over main character Ted (Josh Radnor) finally meeting the titular mother … only for her to die, leaving him to move on to former flame Robin (Cobie Smulders). Some of the episode's scenes were filmed nine years ago, Lyndsy Fonseca, who played Ted's daughter, previously told PEOPLE.

But Thomas stood by the show's final plot twist.

How I Met Your Mother Is Just Like Love: Recapping the Finale

How I Met Your Mother Finale: The Show Is Just Like Love

To paraphrase Ted and Robin: "Major Warning!" This story contains spoilers about tonight's final episode of How I Met Your Mother

Back in 2005 as How I Met Your Mother debuted, I wrote that it was the Lost of sitcoms – a group of people searching for love and identity while marooned on an island. (Have you ever tried to escape Manhattan during rush hour?) There was plenty of time travel, too. And like Lost, the CBS sitcom bowed out controversially, but as many fans predicted.

In a world where cutting to black (The Sopranos) or sending your characters to prison (Seinfeld) passes for a series finale, How I Met Your Mother's ender was decidedly sweet and complete.

While some critics have harshed on this season, the CBS sitcom did a terrific job of tying up all sorts of loose ends (The Mother has a name! The Cockamouse lives!) Except one, that is.

How I Met Your Mother's Kids: We Filmed the Finale 9 Years Ago!

Originally posted 03/31/2014 12:30PM

After nine sidesplitting seasons, CBS's How I Met Your Mother will be ending Monday, but it turns out that parts of the finale actually went before the cameras a very long time ago – in 2005, to be exact!

"We shot this last little section nine years ago," actress Lyndsy Fonseca tells PEOPLE. "It was so long ago, I don't really remember what I said."

Although Fonseca has appeared throughout the series in flash-forwards as the daughter of the titular Mother, all of her scenes were shot during the CBS sitcom's first season – the only way to ensure her on-screen brother, David Henrie, looked the same age for the entire series (despite the fact that he was going through puberty at the time).

You've met the mother. And in the series finale, Ted finally does. But before bidding farewell to How I Met Your Mother forever, we checked in with the children who have waited nine long seasons to hear their parents' love story.

David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca joined PEOPLE on Twitter on Monday afternoon, answering fans' questions live with the hashtag #AskTheKids. Though they've gotten less screen time than the actors playing the MacLaren's gang, you could argue Henrie, 24, and Fonesca, 27, are the stars of the show. After all, without his kids, Ted wouldn't have a tale to tell.
