The 'HIMYM' DVD Will Feature an Alternate "Happy Ending"

How I Met Your Mother's series finale on Monday made a lot of viewers act like babies and whine about it a bunch on the internet, and now, the show's creators are responding with an alternate ending that will be included on the DVD release of the final season, Deadline reports. Fans online got cartoonishly upset about the ending, starting up a dumb petition asking CBS to rewrite and reshoot the finale and a fan-made alternate ending, which went super viral but has since been removed from YouTube due to copyright laws.

The alt ending on the How I Met Your Mother DVD is one that creators Carter [...]

Lindsay Lohan and Billy Eichner Got So Mad About 'HIMYM' Ending that They Destroyed a Car

From last night's Billy on the Street, here's Billy Eichner and Lindsay Lohan ("Don't judge!") getting so upset about How I Met Your Mother ending that they use sledgehammers to wreck a car decorated with the HIMYM cast. "I’m really proud of what we did with Lindsay Lohan," Eichner told us in an interview. "[It] has nothing to do with her personal life or the tabloid side of it. I think it’s really funny. Again, I bring her into my world, and she was totally game and brought a lot of energy to the table. I’m excited for people to see that one just because I think it’s showing [...]

A Wishlist for the End of 'How I Met Your Mother'

How I Met Your Mother doesn’t know to let things go. But that’s what we love most about the show.

The long-running CBS sitcom is quickly approaching its series finale on March 31st. In its victory lap, HIMYM is pulling out every throwback in its nine-year history, with even jokes from the first season being fair game. The show doesn’t do so from a lack of fresh storylines; HIMYM is blatantly reminding us why we fell in love with these five people over the past decade. With each reference used, it's like the writers are gently nudging the viewers in the side, reminding us how much we'll miss them when [...]

The Ending to 'How I Met Your Mother' Was Filmed Back in 2006

I haven't watched much How I Met Your Mother, but from what I gather, it's the story of sexual escapades ending in pregnancy one man very candidly tells his teenage children over the span of nine TV years. Given that time is capable of drastically altering people's physical appearances, the creators of HIMYM planned ahead for the reveal of the show's main conceit way back in 2006 and filmed the climactic scene with the cast that will air on the hour-long series finale episode on March 31st. From HitFix:

Adam Pally Is Developing a New Comedy at NBC

Happy Endings star Adam Pally is working on a new show, behind the camera this time. THR reports that Pally is producing a new untitled comedy created by Dan Gregor and Doug Mand, a writing team who have been working on How I Met Your Mother since 2010. The single-camera show follows a pair of friends who become rich after developing a successful mobile app.

Pally, who was added to the cast of Fox's The Mindy Project this season in the wake of Happy Endings' cancelation, currently has no plans to star in the potential series. Before landing their first sitcom jobs, Pally, Gregor, and Mand came up [...]

About a Girl: Breaking Down the Ending of 'How I Met Your Mother'

It’s always been Robin.

“This is a story about how you’re in love with Aunt Robin and thinking about asking her out and wondering if we’re okay with it,” Penny Mosby bluntly stated to her dad Ted in the final moments of How I Met Your Mother.

About 10% of the hour-long episode stuck with season 9’s setting of Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend, with the remaining 90% of the hour giving us a look into the gang’s future. Barney and Robin’s marriage only lasted three years, solidifying my idea that they were never a believable couple. Barney slips back into his old ways and continues sleeping around with [...]

Billy Eichner and Neil Patrick Harris Pester New Yorkers About the End of 'HIMYM'

Here's a clip from the newest episode of Billy on the Street featuring How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris. The guys harass a bunch of people on the street about their thoughts on the end of the long-running HIMYM, though Eichner seems more concerned about Cobie Smulders's future than anything else.

'How I Met Your Mother' Creators Apologize for Racist Episode

The latest episode of CBS's How I Met Your Mother, which aired Monday night, has caused a bit of controversy. The episode involved Jason Segel's character traveling to China in a parody of kung fu films that saw cast members Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor (pictured), and Alyson Hannigan putting on costumes, accents, and makeup to play Asian characters. The episode received a ton of criticism online, including a ton of people who used the Twitter hashtag #HowIMetYourRacism.

Co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, who also wrote Monday's episode, apologized via Twitter yesterday, saying:

With Monday's episode, we set out to make a silly and unabashedly immature homage to Kung Fu [...]

'HIMYM' Will Do an Entire Episode in Rhyme

How I Met Your Mother is wrapping things up in its ninth season, and the writers are apparently experimenting with some odd methods in this last year. Cobie Smulders, who plays Robin Scherbatsky, told E! Online that an entire episode of this upcoming season will by rhyming. She didn't give too many details on the scheme, although it sounds likes the rhyming structure will change throughout the episode.

It's not a huge surprise that the show would go for a quirky special episode; this entire season is an odd structure. The whole year takes place over one 56-hour weekend, where Ted will finally meet his future wife at the wedding [...]

Greta Gerwig to Star in 'How I Met Your Mother' Spin-Off

In some of the weirdest casting news in a while, EW reports that indie film darling Greta Gerwig is set to star in How I Met Your Dad, the upcoming spin-off series to CBS's hit show How I Met Your Mother. Gerwig will play Sally, who slowly tells the tale of meeting her partner in flashback, and is described as “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life. She has just figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year. A break-up is inevitable, but Sally will find a [...]

CBS Is Making That HIMYM Spinoff, 'How I Met Your Dad'

A few weeks after the idea was first revealed, CBS has decided to spinoff their hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother. A pilot has been ordered for How I Met Your Dad, to be written and executive produced by HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and Up All Night creator Emily Spivey. As the title suggests, the show will follow a single woman telling the story of meeting her children's future father.

Unlike most spinoffs, which feature an established character in a new setting, this show will feature none of HIMYM's characters or settings. The pilot for HIMYD will be a stand-alone episode, rather than a back-door pilot [...]
