Jesus H, release Cobie Smoulders from her contract already, she could be doing so much better than this shitty show. It's gone on for far too many seasons, no one gives a shit who the mother is anymore.
I was hoping she'd be cast in the new S.H.I.E.L.D. show but that's probably not going to happen now. Oh well, I hope she has a bigger part in the next Avengers movie.
The actors will make a fortune from another season, although frankly all of them are pretty much already set for life and probably could be moving onto different, more interesting projects.
Hollywood is like this. The devil you know vs. the devil you don't.
I'm not sure I understand you, R3.
The worst news EVER.
I never liked this show.
If I was one of the barely-talents that is on this show (save for NPH), they would have to physically remove me from the set with all the money they're making.
That actress who plays Robin is so AWFUL that I had to stop watching....of course her awfulness makes the rest of them look better....so I guess they had to have her.
Did I mention what a terrible actress she is? Calling her an actress is an insult to actresses.
I've never seen a minute of this show, but from the title - surely he's told them the story by now??
With the exception of NPH (who I love), the other actors all know...
This is the best freaking job they will ever have.
Has Josh Radnor come out yet?
Ugh, I can't stand this show. I can't watch it for more than 5 minutes at a time because it's so irritating and NPH's character tries WAY too hard to be funny.
I actually prefer NPH's pre-How I Met Your Mother work. I'd like to see him do more "serious" acting again once this mess is finally over.
Right when I thought I've seen the last of NPH...
OP = Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt
Generic straight guys who you'd cross the street to avoid LOOOVE this show.
I hate CBS. I never watch anything on that network 'cause it suuucks. P-U.
The ratings are solid so it's not going anywhere unless the actors decide enough is enough. Now who's going to raise their hands to give up a steady paycheck? Especially when Jason Segal can still make movies and NPH can count on the Smurfs franchise.

The cast of Friends
All of them quit shows that were hits and while they were at the top of their game, and they all made great money. But they all got tired of playing the same character year after year and decided that even good money wasn't worth the "steady paycheck".
Yep always in the 40s....Yawn..
It's sad how now-a-days you can have a show in the 40s and still be renewed.
Dear Cobie Smulders troll, she's is the weakest link on that show other than possibly Josh Radnor. She's lucky she's gotten anything.
The only funny things Robin has done in eight seasons is Robin Sparkles and her irrational hatred of Patrice.
These actors wasted their prime acting years on an unfunny Friends ripoff and they'll never get them back.
Are we EVER going to find how he met their mother?
Believe it or not I've never actually watched this show. My sister lent me the first 2 seasons. Should I bother?
I've only seen about half an episode.
I'd like the last minute of the show to be the father - Bob Saget? - about to finally how he met whoever's mother and say, "and so, this is how I met your mother...". SHOW ENDS!
The mother is Robin. It's been hinted at in prior episodes.
R18 TR Knight is not the best example here. There was more than one reason, why he had to leave the show. Supposedly Shonda Rhimes didn't make it easy for him after her precious Isaaiah had to leave the show for throwing a homophobic slur at Knight. She didn't even give him much to work on the show, he was more like an extra than a main cast in the later seasons. I'm not surprised that he wanted to leave that miserable place and move on.
R27, he was given part-ownership of the show as an incentive to stay on. I don't know if I buy your story.

"The mother is Robin. It's been hinted at in prior episodes."
Then why is she always called "Aunt Robin" by Ted when talking to the kids? And why does Ted say he met their mother the day of Robin's wedding?
Oh, lord, they all talk through their post nasally drip noses like they have snot all clogged up in there, for one thing. And it's just not funny nor ever has been, save the talents of NPH. I haven't watched a single episode since season one and I am quite sure I have missed nothing. Horrid, banal show that appeals to America's plebian tastes, at least those of the douchy breeder guys with skid marked undewear.
LOL, R31. You're VICIOUS!
Ranked in the 40s for the year end. And it was a lot lower than that in some years.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
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...
