TCA: Sarah Chalke gets caught telling a fib
Sarah Chalke, you bad, bad girl.
Chalke, who stars on "Scrubs" and has a recurring role on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," appeared at the Beverly Hilton on Wednesday to help promote the move of "Scrubs" to ABC from NBC this season.
Chalke was asked if she would be reprising her role on "Mother," which has stirred a lot of speculation among TV critics and fans that Chalke's character will turn out to be the mystery "Mother" on the comedy.
Her answer: "Actually, I have no idea what's going to happen with that. I had a great time doing it."
But on Friday, CBS President of Entertainment Nina Tassler touted Chalke's return to the show, saying she was signed on for multiple episodes. Including the season premiere.
A critic asked Tassler if Chalke was "fudging" the facts.
"Maybe," Tassler, said smiling.
Just as critics were left pondering why, why, why Sarah would fudge about appearing on a show they like, Tassler gave them something else to chew on.
"Right now, I don’t think she’s the mother, no," Tassler said.
