How can people even watch this awful show? it is the douchiest television show I have ever seen in my life. It's the equivalent of the asshole het fomrer frat boy at work who says "BOOYA!"
It used to be good -raunchy, but funny, and had a heart. This season has sucked.
Because of dipshits like R1, that's why, OP.
I agree, HIMYM has some of the douchiest characters on TV, next to New Girl.
Because all the elder gays who watch Anderson Cooper think NPH is so hot that they will watch anything that he or any other gay person is in.
The elder gays think GAY = Good.
It can but it's as bad as saying black people all can dance, they can't. Raj from "What's Happenin'" proved.

Racist boy) He just wants you as a dance partner because your black and you'll help him win.
Tootsie) Well he'd be pretty stupid to want to dance with me, if he thought I was gonna help him lose.
When the show started, it was kind of "Friends"-ish enough to appeal to people who missed that show, which had only been off the air a year at that point. The cast was attractive and it was novel having Ted relating his stories to his future kids. But it became too precious, with inside recurring jokes and the ridiculous lengths they go to avoid revealing who the mother is. All the characters have become over the top cartoonish and unlikeable, Neil Patrick Harris's Barney especially. I keep watching just to find out who the mother is but I haven't really enjoyed the show in a while.
R5 I agree with everything you said. I too am only watching to find out who the mother is. Its not funny anymore, I didn't laugh once during this week's episode. Barney is by far the most obnoxious character on there. Season 05 was the last season I really enjoyed.
I'm with R5. We didn't even start at the beginning but got drawn in and now just want to see him meet the mother. Suckers for a gimmick and sitting through some bad episodes. May just stop and catch the episode when he does meet the mother.
It's one of those shows where you want to line up every single character and punch all of them in the brain. Jason Segel makes me physically ill and te rest of them are not far behind. The pretty brunette is the least annoying one but there's a low bar to jump over.
As irritating as NPH is when hosting ANYTHING, he is more irritating on this crap.

I would love if the last episode showed two cobwebbed skeletons sitting on that couch as their father finally finishes his damn tale about all the women he slept with.
Very basic answer, OP, as someone who has watched the show since episode one - it's been on too long. The premise was interesting and the characters were funny, but after season 3, my interest waned.
Why would anyone think that after seven years, viewers would even care? I certainly don't.
Cobie has looked better this season, but the writing is so much worse. But really, the first few seasons were good.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
