The only suspense at Mitt Romney's headquarters on primary night was just how big his margin of victory in New Hampshire would be. The polls hadn't even closed when the former Massachusetts governor's team began lining up the youthful supporters who would serve as the candidate's backdrop waving blue-and-white Romney signs in a crowded ballroom at Southern New Hampshire University. At the stroke of 8, the crowd erupted into cheers as the anchors at Fox News called the primary for Romney.

NEW YORK - John Oliver will have the crab cakes - but that's all, thanks. In a private dining room at HBO's plush headquarters overlooking Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, a waitress in a crisp black uniform asks the 37-year-old comedian if he'd like anything else - perhaps some soup or salad? He declines with a polite insistence that suggests he's not quite used to all the luxurious trappings. Then, as soon as the waitress leaves the room, he launches into a riff about possibly sinister deeds going on behind the scenes at HBO. "I don't know what happens here," he says, "This is, like, unsettlingly nice.

Johnny Carson brought NBC's "The Tonight Show" from New York to Southern California in 1972, a nod to Hollywood's status as the capital of the entertainment industry and the gravitational center of the pop-culture universe. Although the network's headquarters was in New York, Los Angeles had long since eclipsed the Big Apple when it came to television production. As Carson told The Times that year, "The guests you can get in Hollywood you can't get anywhere else. " In the four decades since then, many film and television producers have fled to cheaper locales, and new forms of entertainment have lured away many of the youthful viewers that Hollywood used to attract.

Right wing Teemu Selanne is scheduled to return to the Ducks' lineup Friday against Dallas at Honda Center for Game 5 of the teams' playoff series - and no, Coach Bruce Boudreau didn't have to be demoted to the American Hockey League for that to happen. Selanne, 43, was a healthy scratch for Game 4, a 4-2 Stars victory Wednesday at Dallas. Selanne's exclusion from the lineup prompted his teenage son, Eemil, to send out a tweet that mimicked the forms that teams usually use to announce call-ups, trades and other transactions: "Roster Move: Bruce Boudreau has been reassigned to Norfolk Admirals (AHL)

The annual Lyrid meteor shower peaks tonight, and you can watch it live online, right here. Beginning at 5 p.m. PDT, the astronomy website Slooh.com will live-stream video of the shower from one of its telescopes in North America. Each year in mid-April our planet passes through a trail of dust and debris left in the wake of comet Thatcher -- a long period comet that makes a complete orbit around the sun once every 415 years. As the Earth moves through Thatcher's debris stream, tiny bits of dust slam into our atmosphere at about 110,000 mph, creating streaks of light that shoot across the night sky. The Lyrid meteor shower is not the brightest or the biggest of the annual meteor showers, but it is one of the oldest known meteor showers.

Sky watchers, get ready! There is a total eclipse of the moon coming Monday night and you don't want to miss it. A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, and Earth align so that  Earth's shadow falls across the moon's surface. Monday night's lunar eclipse is a total eclipse, which means  Earth's shadow will cover the moon completely. The moon won't be blacked out by our planet's shadow. Instead, it will take on a reddish hue -- anywhere from a bright copper to the brownish red of dried blood.

The hours of operation are 7 p.m. to 1:45 a.m. It is also expected that people will flock to other areas where they can see the eclipse, including mountain and desert areas with less light pollution.

TV executives are holding their breath to see whether Jay Leno can recapture his old fans Monday when the comedian returns to "The Tonight Show." But for NBC, its painful late-night saga may be just beginning, as the restoration doesn't solve the programming and financial problems that still afflict the network and its prime-time rivals. Though his good-guy image took a serious hit during the battle with Conan O'Brien over "Tonight's" host chair, many analysts expect Leno, who turns 60 in April, to win back most if not all of his old fan base, which made the show No. 1 in late night during most of his 17-year tenure.

It's being hyped as a showdown between two of the best teams in the NBA. When the Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Wednesday night at Staples Center, both teams will have plenty riding on the outcome - and that's why there is all the hype. Leading the season series, 2-1, the Clippers can clinch the regular-season tiebreaker over the Thunder with a victory. So if the Clippers and Thunder end the regular season with matching records, L.A. would win the first tiebreaker of head-to-head competition and would have the home-court advantage if the two teams meet in the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Most of the arrests were alcohol-related, although a few were for scuffling with officers, police said, adding that no one was seriously injured. UConn Police Chief Barbara O'Connor told reporters that she was pleased by how most students handled themselves. The flagship campus in the small town of Storrs has about 16,000 undergraduates.
