Earlier, we reported that New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz would play himself in a similar episode of Mother. Although we originally pegged the show’s air date a week later, based on the plot summary it looks more likely that Shortz and Huffington will appear together. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a few more cameos from the New York media scene.
