Neil Patrick Harris in 'How I Met Your Mother'Neil Patrick Harris wants How I Met Your Mother to end after the current season.

The comedy returns this month for its eighth season and Neil - who plays Barney Stinson - says he and the rest of the cast are ready for the show to reach its conclusion.

"Our contracts end at [Season] eight, so it's one of those, you know, if they wanna do nine, they're welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on]. Cobie has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason makes a ton of movies, I'm anxious to move East and Josh is directing and acting in movies as well. So, we all are anxious to move forward," said Neil, who stars alongside Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan.

Neil also admits the only reason any of the cast will sign up for another series is if it will be incredibly lucrative for them to do so: "I think the only way I think a season nine or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right - that's the reality of it. We love the show, we love doing it - eight years is a long time and we're as happy a family as we've ever been."

Dr. Phil and Dina Lohan

Dina Lohan has been slammed as "phony and inauthentic." The mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan gave a shambolic interview to Dr. Phil McGraw on his Dr. Phil show where she was blasted for appearing intoxicated and made rude gestures when she didn't like certain questions and the TV personality was unimpressed.

"What you have done is distinguished yourself in the negative, you have come on here and been phony and inauthentic. You spent more time talking about cameras, are we rolling... that's my business... we're not here about my business, we're here about your life," he told her.

Elementary vs. SherlockBenedict Cumberbatch is a "bit cynical" about Elementary.

The British actor plays the leading character in the UK's Sherlock, and while he wishes those in the US show - which also tells the story of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes in a modern setting - the "best of luck," he did tell lead actor Jonny Lee Miller he would rather he didn't take part.

"It's very odd. I did say to Jonny, 'Well, I'd prefer you didn't do it but you've got a kid to feed, a nice house in Los Angeles and a wife to keep in good clothes.' When you get used to a certain standard of living and they waft a paycheck at you, what are you going to do? I think Jonny was like, 'Mate, I've got a f**king mountain to climb here, you've got nothing to fear.' I wish him the best of luck, but I'm a bit cynical about why they've chosen to do it and why they cast him," he said.

The 43-year-old actress is departing her recurring role as a political reporter on the CBS drama to recover from the injuries she sustained when hit by a piece of lighting equipment on the set of the show last month. "It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife at this time. I'm getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern," she said.

Kristin's final appearance on the show will be the season four premiere, which airs next month, but show bosses haven't ruled out a return in future. "She may return in the future, but right now she needs more time to heal. The producers said she is welcome back any time," a source said.

It is unclear what is wrong with Kristin, who was hospitalized after she was struck by the lighting silk on Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, but released a day later.

Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne broke down in tears on The Talk yesterday morning. The showbiz matriarch couldn't keep her emotions in check when she spoke to thank fans for their messages of support following the news that her 26-year-old son Jack has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

"He's great - he's doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us. Thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing - but for Jack because I really believe that vibes of prayer help. And what I'm doing right now is not helping because I'm just feeling sorry for myself, and that is no good. So we just have to think positively and get on with this show that we love," she said in between sobs.
