Tonight: Last Call for HIMYM Cast

The final episode of long-running CBS comedy series “How I Met Your Mother” airs tonight, 7 p.m. CT, after a nine-year run that consistently averaged nine million-plus viewers per episode.

“The entire original main cast has remained with the show for the whole run, the only change being the addition of [The Mother, Cristin] Milioti for season nine,” noted the New York Daily News. “That doesn’t happen on television.”

“HIMYM” co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are currently working on their next show. While the cast and characters will be completely new, the theme will be similar, as is the title, “How I Met Your Dad.”

TV’s Biggest Fails are Often Spinoffs

From some of the TV series we remember fondly have come spinoffs we wish we could forget. Inspired by the news that CBS has ordered a follow-up pilot to “How I Met Your Mother” called “How I Met Your Dad,” Yahoo!TV compiled a slideshow featuring 12 TV Spinoffs We Didn’t Ask For (But Got Anyway). And, yes, “Joanie Loves Chachi” made the list.
