The CBS network has experienced a huge blow to their comedy line up with the unexpected termination of “Two and a Half Men” (Charlie and Chuck, can’t we all just get along?). Therefore, they’re trying to solidify their other winning comedies by locking them into contracts and extending their deals. “How I Met Your Mother” has officially been renewed for another two seasons.
“We are so proud of this show and all of its creative and ratings achievements,” said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler. “HIMYM’s brilliant producing team continues to find inventive ways to tell funny stories that stir pop culture conversation; it has become a go-to destination for top guest stars and its amazing ensemble cast brings to life characters that audiences want to hang out with every Monday night.”
The show is currently in its sixth season, and has continued to be a ratings success for the network. In terms of critical achievements, co-star Neil Patrick Harris has been nominated for four consecutive Primetime Emmys for his role as Barney, the womanizer on the show.
This is great news for the series, the cast, and the fans, but how long are people expected to wait before they find out who this kid’s mother is? It’s moments like these, that make us happy that we never got fully invested in the show.
