We always knew Katherine Pierce was a bad mutha.

But an actual bad mother? Of Nadia the Traveler? Who was abandoned in 1492 and got herself turned into a vampire just to track down her globe-trotting parent and save her from Silas a few centuries later?

Not sure any viewer saw that one coming.

Yes, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 5 dropped two bombshells when it came to everyone's favorite plot device, Katherine:

  1. Nadia is her daughter.
  2. Katherine simply can't die.

CBS viewers have already met the Mother.

Are they ready to learn all about the Father?

According to Deadline sources, network executives have begun negotiations with How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to spin their beloved sitcom off after it wraps up Season 9 in May.

The new series would be titled How I Met Your Father and it would center on a new group of friends, one of whom is a woman telling her kids all about how she fell for their dad.

These new characters would be introduced on the HIMYM finale and the new show would also use McLaren’s Pub as a hang-out.

Spinoffs, of course, are all the rage these days. There's The Originals and Ravenswood and there's already plans in the works for a Walking Dead spinoff. We may also see NCIS: New Orleans and The CW is considering a Supernatural spinoff.

Would you watch How I Met Your Father?

The New Directions will belt out their final song in May 2015.

At a television event inside the Paley Center in Los Angeles last night, Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that the series will come to an end after its upcoming sixth season.

He also explained that he and fellow producers will need to write a new conclusion following the tragic death of Cory Monteith in July.

"I always knew how it would end," Murphy said of the final season and how it was meant to be "designed around Rachel and Finn."

"I knew what the last shot was – [Monteith] was in it. I knew what the last line was – she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now."

Said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke of the James Spader-anchored drama:

“The many layers of Red Reddington and his mysterious reasons for getting into bed with the FBI seem to be fascinating to fans of this show. With great talent like James Spader and Megan Boone on board, as well our stellar executive producers and the whole cast and crew, we believe this outstanding series will continue to make NBC a big destination on Monday nights.”

  • Lucky 7 has been canceled.

Halle Berry is headed to your living room. Calm down, though, fellas.

The Academy Award winner has been tapped to headline Extant, a CBS drama produced by Steven Spielberg that skipped the pilot process and was ordered straight to series by the network in August.

It will focus on Berry as an astronaut who returns from a year-long solo mission in space and learns that her experiences there will play a key role in the future of mankind. Hmmm... sounds interesting. And very attractive.

A show known more for laughs than violence is set to take out one of its own.

Executive Producer Al Jean says The Simpsons will celebrate its 25th season at some point in the near future by killing off a long-time character. Who might it be?

"I'll give you a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is," Jean told reporters during a recent conference call.

Hmmm… that does actually narrow down the list by quite a lot.

It should satisfy the enormous ego of Walter White to know that he went out in a blaze of record-setting glory.

The series finale of Breaking Bad - which ended with Walt freeing Jesse, killing a lot of Neo-Nazis and passing away from a gunshot wound inside a meth lab - shattered series ratings on AMC, garnering 10.3 million overall viewers.

That's an astounding 300% increase over last year's finale, with 6.7 million of those viewers residing in the advertiser-friendly demographic of 18-49-year olds.

Kim Kardashian is following in the footsteps of her ex-husband.

The same week Kris Humphries made a cameo as himself on The Mindy Project, Fox has announced that his wife of 72 days is also headed to the network:

Kim will voice an alien on a late season episode of American Dad, sources confirmed yesterday, coming on board the animated series as a love interest for the main character of Roger.

Kim has appeared on other hits such as How I Met Your Mother and Drop Dead Diva, though she won't actually be seen on screen this time around.

The reality star has supposedly been complaining of boredom in her everyday life as a mom to North West, so don't be surprised if she books a few more television and/or movie roles in the near future.

No, not those kinds of movie roles! Don't get overly excited, Kim Kardashian Superstar fans.

Forget the furor over Ben Affleck as Batman for a minute and ask yourself this question:

Who should play Commission Gordon? On television? On Fox in 2014, to be specific?

The network announced last night that it has ordered Gotham straight to series. The drama will be executive produced by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and produced by Warner Bros. Television.

It promises to tell “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous.”

So... The Joker? The Riddler? Mr. Freeze? The possibilities here seem endless and possibly very entertaining.

This news, of course, comes just as ABC is premiering its own comic book-based series. Did you tune in for the Agents of SHIELD premiere?
