Neil Patrick Harris Adores 'HIMYM'

Neil Patrick Harris on How I Met Your MotherIf anyone was getting nervous that Neil Patrick Harris's new gig hosting the game show 'The Cube' might mean his interest in 'How I Met Your Mother' was waning, worry no more. On Tuesday, Harris Tweeted the answer to a question no one has asked yet, that he is staying put on 'HIMYM.'

Harris's (subtly scatological) message, referring to 'HIYMYM' and 'The Cube,' both of which are CBS projects: "I'm never leaving HIMYM. That job rocks. This would just have me doing double duty on the Tiffany Network. (Huh, huh. I said double duty...)"

There would be no reason for Harris to leave, even though he has been popping up everywhere from 'American Idol' as a guest judge to hosting the Emmys, and even 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold.' And you will more than likely see him on 'Glee' in May, and probably a dozen other places.

But 'HIMYM' is the gig that made Harris such an in-demand actor. Before the show, he was a former child TV star for 'Doogie Howser, M.D.' and a theater star of note. 'HIMYM' was a proving ground, of sorts, introducing a mass audience to Harris's sharper comic instincts and guile. He's been nominated for three Emmys for the show (and probably should have won at least once).

No one seems to appreciate this more than Harris, and no doubt CBS has to appreciate what they have in Harris. It would be surprising if either side walked away from the relationship anytime soon.
