Meg Ryan is getting back into acting, but as befits her more private life these days, it's an off-camera role.

Ryan, 52, has signed up to be the narrator of How I Met Your Dad, the upcoming spin-off of CBS's just-concluded How I Met Your Mother, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Much as Bog Saget provided the voice of future Ted in the original series, Ryan will be unseen as the voice of future Sally, whose present, on-camera self will be portrayed by Greta Gerwig.

Jimmy Fallon knows the Internet. And he knows that it's only got one rule: When something works, do it again and again.

So when the Web blew up at Fallon's supercut of Brian Williams rapping Warren G's "Regulate" last year, Fallon made his newscaster colleague try his hand at "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang.

Now, he's done it again, editing together dozens of clips of Williams to make it look as though the authoritative journalist is rapping along to Snoop Dogg's 1994 hit "Gin and Juice."

For the second time in four episodes, this week's episode of Game of Thrones finds the world of Westeros reeling from the death of one of its young kings.

Just as the aftermath of last season's Red Wedding had each character in the Seven Kingdom's dealing with their place in the new Lannister hegemony, the murder of Joffrey exploded that burgeoning stasis, and our assorted cripples, bastards and broken things have found themselves adrift in a world where nobody's sure exactly who's on top any more.

How do they deal with this? For most characters in "Breaker of Chains" it's by hunkering down and thinking of the long term, no matter how much pain each decision causes them in the present.

Every half season of Scandal has its own main scandal: the murder of Amanda Tanner, the election rigging in Ohio, the existence of shadowy CIA squad B613. This spring's abbreviated string of episodes has nominally been centered on the reappearance of Olivia Pope's mother, but true Scandal fans know that that's a false-flag operation. The real scandal at the heart of the spring's half-season is the disappearance of star Kerry Washington's ever-growing baby bump, which the show's producers have attempted to hide with the worst cover-up the show has ever seen.

Don't believe us? Here's the evidence, by the numbers. Pin these up to your wall while a funky Motown song plays.

The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary are back and better than ever.

Netflix released the trailer for Orange is the New Black's second season Thursday, and it finds the inmates full of sass and snark. The whole gang returns for round two – besides religious fanatic Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), conspicuously absent after the season 1 finale's violent cliff-hanger. But Piper (Taylor Schilling) is in especially fine form, apparently put in solitary due to the scary altercation.

"Sadly, it's starting to feel like home in here," she quips of her white-walled cell.

She won't stay settled for long. A new prisoner, simply called "V", arrives to shake things up. She immediately incurs the wrath of Red (the two seem to be long-lost enemies) yet clicks with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba).

For any other show, a bomb in a church, a looming election, an attempted murder, the takedown of a shadow government agency, and some face-licking would make for an amazing season finale.

But when you're talking about Scandal, that was just the appetizer. On Thursday, ABC's D.C.-set hit drama, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, wraps up its third season (10 p.m. ET) – and everyone wants to know if it will go out with a bang.

Spoiler alert! In case you missed last week's episode, Olivia's mom, Maya, planted an explosive device in a church where President Grant (Tony Goldwyn) was expected to attend a funeral. The president's chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, was tipped off about the bomb, but decided not to tell anyone about it because the church was already packed with his enemies – while the president was still safely ensconced in the White House.

Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus, dropped a couple hints about what to expect on the finale.
