If you missed it last week, the New York Times put together an outstanding look at what it takes to win over Canadian Lorne Michaels and make it on "Saturday Night Live."

There are mild spoilers in TV Guide's interview with "How I Met Your Mother" co-creator Carter Bays about the show's upcoming final season, but it's more of a tease than anything else.

There are three teasers, a three-minute trailer and a couple of behind-the-scenes featurettes to screen at Showtime's YouTube channel. (http://bit.ly/1dazEn1)
