Yay! They were renewed for another season! Fantastic news as this is my favorite comedy of all time! I love it! And, I begrudgingly Thank Britney Spears, as well as oh so happily Thank Sarah Chalke for their aids in bringing in the numbers to help save my favorite comedy ever! How about you? Are you as thrilled as I am at the news that it has been rescued and gets another season to make others laugh themselves to tears and split sides?

I'm so happy that How I Met Your Mother has been picked up for another season! It really is a great sitcom - with a fabulous cast. I've never watched an episode and not laughed my butt off. My Fiance and I have purchases seasons one and two on DVD and they are even funny the second time around. They really did an excellent job of creating a sitcom with lasting power I haven't seen since Sienfeld and Friends.

I am with you! Every episode makes me laugh my butt off too! LOL! My favorite episode was "Swarly". I can't remember if it was from season 1 or 2. I think the second season but, it seems like it was so long ago that it was on! But, I laughed my butt off both times I saw that episode and, now every time he is on, my hubby and I both holler "Swarly" out loud! LOL!

I think my favorite had to be the Slap-Betting episode! We laughed until we cried on that one..

Britney was what really attracted me to the show. I started watching it and now I don't want to stop watching it because it's such a funny show. I hope that it goes on for a long time.

I am so glad you are a fan now! This is my absolute favorite comedy of all time so, the more people that watch it, the longer it will continue to get picked up for each new season! If you want to catch up, you can watch full episodes of it online at www.cbs.com My favorite episode is the one titled "Swarley". Barney gets the nickname Swarley given to him by a coffee barista that mistakes his real name! It is the best episode! I loved that one!

Same here! It is my favorite comedy of all time! I hope that the battle it has had to get renewed every year is finally over and that there will be no question as to whether it gets picked up again for next year after this season is through.

My roommate mentioned something about it maybe getting cancelled but I didn't believe it. I've loved this show since the first time I watched it and have both seasons on dvd. I just got my new roommate into it and it's his favorite show now too. We've spent the last two weeks watching episodes almost every day. Even after watching them over and over they still make me laugh. I'm so happy to know there will be another season. I just hope that if it does get cancelled, they film one more episode (or movie, maybe?) to tell us who the mother is. We have to know.

Before Britney and Sarah were on, it was up in the air as to whether it would get canceled. It pretty much is every year. And, as far as the mother goes, I have read that if they do get canceled they will not leave us hanging about who the mother is. They will leave us fulfilled. I just hope that it has gotten a big enough audience and those two big wigs have finally gotten over themselves and realized just how great this show is, and it will finally be permanently off that bubble of potential cancellation! It always has me on pins and needles waiting to find out if it will be canceled or renewed each year! And, their episodes are timeless! Each time you see them, it stays as funny as the last time you saw it! That is what I call, A great comedy!

I didn't realize that it was in danger of being cancelled. it is so funny i can't believe they were considering it. I really hope that it wasn't thanks to Britney lol. I love Sarah Chalke, she is funny. I think the show is so funny I really hope it builds some more fan base so it stays around awhile. Atleast till we find out How he met their mother lol

Yea! I know! It is hard to believe that it was what tv execs call a "Bubble show" which means that it might pop and get canceled...or something like that. But, from what I understand, it isn't because of a lack of fans. It is because someone at CBS and I think someone that actually works on the productions side of the show (a big wig at that) doesn't like it so, they are the ones who have put it in danger of cancellation every year. But, it is likely that the extra oomph that new fans added due to Britney and Sarah, might have been just what the doctor ordered and it might have given those naysayers the shot in the arm that they needed to stop the naysaying...for now. Jerks! LOL! What is wrong with them. Do they even have a funny bone? Even my hubby, who watched it with me when it first started, then he lost interest in it but, came back to it last year, can't resist the hilarity that they deliver. Seriously...maybe we should find an extra funny bone to have hand delivered to those naysayers so they can attach them and get over themselves while laughing themselves to tears and split sides! LOL!
