Neil Patrick Harris isn’t sure he can host another Oscars
“I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it,” Harris, who has hosted multiple Emmys and Tonys, said with a laugh in an interview with the Huffington Post. In responding to the criticism, Harris pointed out how complicated his job was. “It’s a beast,” he adds. “It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don’t know that it’s a delightful balance to do every year or even again.”

Conan calls his visit to Cuba “transcendent”
“There are these scenes in Cuba,” he says, “where I’m in a white linen suit and I’m dancing in a parade in the middle of the street, and everyone around me is like dancing and clapping. It’s transcendent. I can’t believe I get to do that. That’s something I would have trouble imagining I’d be able to do back when I was sitting in my small room writing Simpsons scripts on the Fox lot in 1991. I could never have dreamed that I would get to do this.”

CSI: Cyber is a waste of an Academy Award winner
The newest CSI spinoff, premiering tonight, doesn’t make good use of Patricia Arquette, which is especially glaring now that she’s an Oscar winner. As Joanne Ostrow notes, Arquette is “now saddled with one of those law enforcement TV roles that requires tension-building in a conservative business suit: either staring at a video monitor looking concerned, talking on a cellphone looking concerned, or hustling in the field while wearing an FBI bullet-proof vest, looking extra concerned.” PLUS: CSI: Cyber is just plain hackneyed in its attempt to give a high-tech sheen to the same old formula, Arquette is the first female CSI headliner in 35 seasons of the franchise (Marg Helgenberger doesn’t count), producers are clearly banking on Arquette’s likability, and James Van Der Beek feels like he’s signed on with the NY Yankees.
