– What did you think of this weekend's Saturday Night Live with Emma Stone and Coldplay? My highlights include Emma asking Andy Samberg why they were repeating the same banter that went on with Kirsten Dunst ten years ago, and he in turn asked her why they were remaking Spider-Man after ten years (it also featured a cameo by Andrew Garfield). I also loved Emma's bumper shots, especially the one where she dressed up as Gilda Radner (who Emma called her "original hero" back in a 2010 edition of People magazine). My favourite skit was "Les Jeunes de Paris." (I apologize if the clip gets removed!)

– Supernatural's Misha Collins (Castiel) will appear on Ringer as Dylan — a character from Bridget and Siobhan's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) past. He'll first appear in episode 14, which is scheduled to air in early 2012.

– Last night on Family Guy, Stewie and Brian travelled back in time (to the pilot) and ended up stopping 9/11 from happening and then had to travel back in time again to allow it to happen due to the butterfly-effect consequences it unravelled: civil war, George W. Bush as the leader of the confederacy). Do you think it went too far? Imagine if Stewie and Brian woke up series creator, Seth MacFarlane, so that he didn't miss Flight 11? While the 9/11 issue is the hot topic of the day, my highlight was when they went five years into the future and the show was in CGI. If you missed the episode, you can catch it on GlobalTV.com.
– My picks for tonight:
On Gossip Girl (8 p.m. on The CW and MuchMusic): Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) sets her sights on Serena (Blake Lively) in her quest to ruin Gossip Girl. Dan (Penn Badgley) is out on his book tour while most of the Upper East Siders attend a performance of Punchdrunk's provocative theatre experience, "Sleep No More," which translates to masks, anonymity and some surprising romantic twists.
On How I Met Your Mother (8 p.m. on CBS): Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) find themselves in an uncomfortable situation when they hide a secret from their significant others. Meanwhile, Marshall (Jason Segal), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Ted (Josh Radnor) attend a concert.
On 2 Broke Girls (8:30 p.m. on CBS): Johnny's (Nick Zano) girlfriend (Kelly Beckett) has a devious plan in mind when she hires Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) to bake cupcakes for her art show featuring his work.
