How I Met Your Mother is a sitcom about Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he fell in love. It all started when Ted’s best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), drops the bombshell that he’s going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher.
At that moment, Ted realizes that he had better get a move on if he hopes to find true love, too. Helping him in his quest is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris, “Doogie Howser, M.D.”), a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous, opinions, a penchant for suits and a fool-proof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin (Cobie Smulders, “Veritas: The Quest”), he’s sure it’s love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store.
With voice-over by Bob Saget (“Full House”), the show is told through flashbacks from the future. Carter Bays & Craig Thomas (“Late Show with David Letterman”) are executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television.
From CBS’s press release, December 2013… After 208 episodes told over nine seasons, the story of how Ted Mosby ultimately meets his children’s mother will conclude with a special one-hour series finale on Monday, March 31 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
