His net worth is currently estimated at $16 million. I don't know what it was before the show, but I'm sure it had at least two less digits, maybe even three. I think he's done alright for himself.

Sure making cash off it is fine, but that doesn't necessarily mean he thinks its a great character to play.
I think someone who has appeared on 10 television episodes prior to HIMYM and really hasn't done anything since the show started in 2005 probably doesn't care what the character is. Just keep writing checks for $120k an episode.
It would be much easier to list the things I wouldn't do for $16 million than to list the things I would do.
haha "Lily comin'"
The Wire reference saved tonight's episode
HEY! Robin and Barney are engaged! Nothing new has happened for a while! At least it was a somewhat funny episode...I'm reviving this thread.
I felt the last few weeks have been good, but I might just like Robin yelling at Patrice.
I loved last nights episode. I don't want to spoil anything but it ties together the events of the whole season so far in a clever way and sets up the final episode IMO. anyone know if it's been decided whether this is the actual final season yet?
It has been better since Victoria left. Back to it's usual stuff.
RIP The Playbook.
Yeah, I'm 19.
I too enjoyed the episode, but let's not pretend that it excuses some of the shittiness of this season.
First half of the episode was garbage. Second half was much better. It was predictable but was done in a nice way.
I kinda want Marshall and Lilly to die. They are insufferable.
Fire the Turd!!!
I speak for everyone in saying that we encourage spoilers here. I have admittedly given up on the show, so this is where I get my tent poles of the series since I stopped 1+ year ago.
Is HIMYM really a show you can give up on? It's not a show that if you were looking for a heavy plot or "lol" jokes to watch. It's always been a smart comedy that makes some of the most natural dealings in life fun. I don't get how doing them doing that more/less serious or funny can change your opinion on it.
Plus the reason this is my favorite comedy over the other garbage shows(BBT, 2 1/2M, M&M) is because it doesn't forget a thing it ever mentions. In season 1 there is some bet or condition that had 15 seconds of air time, and 4 seasons or so later it shows up again. I love that. I'm not talking about the plot. Of course, every show follows some plot throughout the season, but what I am talking about doesn't have anything to do with the plot, yet enhances it. The Ducky Tie for example.Introduced last season premiere but it still had regular appearances as it should have. The slap bet is another. It makes the show much more enjoyable.

I haven't watched any of this season either. I keep saying that I will download the season and catch up, but Id be a lot happier to just find out who the mom is. If I could just sign up for a text alert for when they do the reveal Id probably stop checking this thread altogether.
For me, yes. The first few years will always have a special place in my heart as I thoroughly enjoyed them, but it just stalled for me and I lost interest. I will admit that this happened to me with Lost as well, so maybe my attention span is not that great.
I'm fairly sure this is the final season so you'll get your wish in a few months.
It's 50/50 if this is the final season. Supposedly everyone except Jason Segal has agreed to return for another year, and they could bring him back in a limit role.
Yep, last week's episode had me in stitches, Definitely the funniest in a while (far and away the funniest this season). And Monday's episode was very nicely done. Definitely gives me hope for the rest of the season.
And I agree with whoever said Marshall and Lily need to die. Not really though, ideally they should just go back to the awesome characters they were. But babies kill TV shows, and HIMYM has been no exception, in fact it might even be the worst I've seen in that regard. I know in real life when you have a baby, it becomes your life, but screw that. I don't feel like watching that on TV. They should do like a bunch of other shows do and acknowledge the kid is there, but widely ignore it in the show. But instead they're just stumbling into the tired "I can't leave my baby!" bullshit that so many other shows have done. Get those two characters back on track and the show could be pretty great going out (despite Barney's scheming days being over).
I don't see how this can be funny anymore since Ted will be the only single character left, and he is terrible
Even if Segel agrees to come back, I feel like the show is in a bit of a tough spot.
The problem is wrapping up the show in a nice way. The course that this season is taking leads me to believe that it will be in the finale that Ted meets the Mrs. So the problem with trying to wrap it up this season is that there is almost no way the viewer can meet the mother and almost immediately fall in love with her. She has to separate herself from the girls Ted has been with in the past and that seems almost impossible to do in an hour, or even a few episodes.
So that's where the problems for a next season would come in. Lily and Marshall are already insufferable with the baby, and that will likely continue. Then you have Barney and Robin being married, thus the womanizing, fun Barney is dead and his quest for Robin is over (along with Ted's quest for Robin, which is probably a good thing, as that was getting annoying). Not to mention, all the anticipation for meeting the mother will be over. The series will have hit a wall, and most of the things that made the show great will be gone. Maybe they have some great ideas, but it seems like it would likely be a pretty dull season to me.
This is all correct.
more like 100% it's not
Segel is coming back, and LOL at the article title
HitFixs Alan Sepinwall writes about reports that How I Met Your Mother has been renewed for a ninth season, and wonders what that means about the timetable for the title to come true.
at least i can stop watching this season now.
If they don't meet the mother by the end of this season, I'm out.
