BBC buys rights to 'How I Met your Mother'. BBC2 and BBC3 will broadcast Alyson Hannigan's new comedy series sometime next year. In related news, the UK satellite channel LIVINGtv has bought the rights to show Veronica Mars.

I've merged the two Alyson Hannigan threads together to save some space on the front page.
Nice... HIMYM looks like an excellent sitcom and we all know the quality of Veronica Mars. Also, on the VM post someone asked which connections there are between Whedonverse and Veronica Mars. I've been sitting here for about an hour looking into just that so I'm not gonna let it go to waste. Here it is:

So Djungerlurban, you're saying there is some connection between Buffy and Veronica Mars?

Now if only we can work out the connection between Ben and Glory...
Excellent research, Djungelurban, although I must confess that even after watching every BtVS and FF episode 5 times each, I don't recognize many of those character names - Roger? Mrs. Finkle? Wright? But an impressive cross-over quotient.
Djungelurban, there's also the hollywood connection game, between whedonverse people and VM people.

Troy was Veronica's love interest, in early 1st season, played by Aaron Ashmore, whose twin brother is Shawn Ashmore (Bobby Drake from the X-Men Movies, and also from Smallville), who happens to be dating Michelle Tratchenberg (Dawn in Buffy).
Very quick on the uptake with Bones! Yet they've only just got around to anouncing that Lost will air next month!
