It may get another shot in the 2015-2016 season. Personally, no fingers are crossed from me as this doesn’t really need to exist.
PL: I’m proud of those guys for taking a risk with something and sticking to what they wanted to say. And who cares? Like, they get to do what they want. They’ve earned that right, and they made a great series, and it should end exactly how they think is best.
|—||Former ‘HIMYM’ writers Chris Miller and Phil Lord defend the finale | Vulture|
CBS has passed on ‘HIMYD’. Deadline reports that there was a dispute over creative direction, and that 20th Century Fox is shopping it elsewhere. Nina Tassler of CBS said “There were elements of the pilot that didn’t work out,” and 20th didn’t want to rework only to have it passed on again. Tassler also denied it having anything to do with the online reaction to the finale.
I’ll be interested to see if it gets picked up elsewhere. The world won’t be worse off without it I think, but having read the script, it was a promising remix of the concept and a few of the characters held promise (the others, on the other hand, needed work). It wasn’t particularly funny on the page, but I could see it being funnier in performance. The ending also solved a major problem of ‘HIMYM’ [SPOILER: The father is one of the main cast and is revealed to be so at the end of the pilot] which set up an entirely different show in the long run. It’s definitely not a necessary thing that needs to exist in the world and is no major loss if it doesn’t get picked up elsewhere, but would have been cool to see if they could do it.
I have learned that the controversial sequence was not the only conclusion the HIMYM writers considered. I hear creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas also contemplated an alternate ending, which will be included in HIMYM‘s upcoming DVD set. I hear the alternate ending does not involve additional footage but rather a different editing of the episode. HIMYM producers and studio 20th Century Fox TV would not comment on any specifics of the alternate closing, but a source described it as a “happy ending.”
The final development of Ted’s character was learning to not be the man who lived in his stories: The story of how he met Tracey finally ended, and the rest of his life began.
Hulk loves HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER and he defends the final episode against a sea of outrage.
HULK GETS IT.
HOW COULD THEY CUT THIS?!??! How could they justify that?!
Damn you, show.
How I Met Your Mother went out on top. Monday night’s series finale easily led the night, delivering 12.9 million viewers and a 5.3 rating among adults 18-49.
That marks the show’s highest-rated episode of all time, and jumped 51 percent from last week. HIMYM’s one-hour closer easily topped NBC’s usual Monday winner The Voice, which dipped slightly this week to 12.1 million viewers and a 3.4 rating.
