So... 'HIMYM's' Cobie Smulders Is With Child, Is It Ted's?

Cobiesmulders Sorry, that headline was just my way of tricking you into reading this post. I mean, How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders and her actor boyfriend, Taran Killam, are indeed expecting. People.com went public with the happy news earlier this morning. However, I have no idea if Cobie's real-life pregnancy (or the pregnancy of HIMYM's other leading lady, Alyson Hannigan) will affect the show's storylines. I did shoot an inquisitive email off to executive producer Carter Bays a bit ago, but I told him I wasn't counting on an informative reply, as I felt kind of dirty prying over something that has to do with the ladies' personal lives. However, since their growing tummies could potentially change the course of the series, that sort of makes this story my territory, no? What do you guys think? Should Robin get knocked up by Ted or Barney? We have heard that she and Ted will resume a sexual relationship in the near future, and since she's recently admitted that she's no longer anti-offspring...

Anyhoo, I'll let you kids debate the possibilities. I'm just thankful today that we can even talk of such things. In fact, there are several TV blessings to be grateful for, from possible on-screen progeny to the impending return of some of my absolute favorite shows. This Thanksgiving, I'm givin' it up for Big Love's January 11th premiere date, Friday Night Light's NBC homecoming (this season is so kick ass, I'm excited for the masses to see it), Mad Men and 30 Rock's Emmy wins (yes, still thrilled about this, 'cause it's a beautiful thing to see shows rewarded for their content, despite their ratings)... but most of all, this year, I'm thankful for you guys, the readers of KTV. This operation has been up and running for almost seven months now, and it's because of your passion for all things small-screen that we've enjoyed success. So thank you for supporting KTV and for commenting like champions and keeping me on my toes (aka awake at night filled with anxiety... kidding) 24/7.

Let's continue that action today. Tell me what TV-related things you're most thankful for this year. I'm quite curious to hear...
