'How I Met Your Mother' Season 7: Weddings, Song and Dance Numbers & a Baby

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 19th 2011 6:30PM
'How I Met You Mother' kicks off its seventh season tonight (premieres Mon., Sept. 19, 8PM ET on CBS), and fans will get a nice dose of singing and dancing, some auto-tuned Ted, two weddings and some flashbacks.

I hit the set during a particularly boob-tastic day of shooting this season, with Lily finally showing the first signs of pregnancy, but there were even more exciting things to talk about.

Like what guest stars Martin Short and Kal Penn will be up to, what sort of love triangles we'll be seeing this season (Barney and Robin and Ted? Really?!), lots of wedding talk and, of course, Marshall and Lily's bundle of joy.

Lonely IslandLonely Island will put its stamp on the Emmys.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Andy Samberg and his group Lonely Island, Maya Rudolph and Ed Helms will perform a musical medley during the 63rd annual ceremony.

Rudolph stars in NBC's new comedy 'Up All Night' -- her character sings! -- and Ed Helms' 'The Office' character is known for busting out into song at the drop of a hat. Lonely Island had three songs up for Emmys -- including '3-Way (The Golden Rule)' -- but lost out to Justin Timberlake's 'Saturday Night Live' monologue.

by Laura Prudom, posted May 13th 2011 1:00PM
It's been a season of emotional highs and lows on the CBS comedy 'How I Met Your Mother' -- we started with a wedding, took a tragic pitstop at a funeral and found ourselves inordinately fixated on a dingy old building populated by cockamice, but on Monday (May 16, 8PM ET), it all comes to a head.

Cobie Smulders, Josh Radnor and Neil Patrick Harris

The season finale will see Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) given a chance to make amends for a mistake he made earlier in the year, relationships will be tested, questionable foods will be eaten and the Arcadian will meet its ultimate fate.

AOL TV was on set to watch the finale being filmed, and we caught up with Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders for a few hints on what fans can expect as the season wraps up. (Spoilers ahead)

'How I Met Your Mother' Celebrates Blitzgiving (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 17th 2010 1:45PM
The 'How I Met Your Mother' gang has survived some pretty horrific holidays together -- including the epic 'Slapsgiving' episode heard round the world -- but this year's Thanksgiving is particularly jinxed.

Guest star Jorge Garcia (you might remember him from a little show called 'Lost') plays the Blitz, Ted (Josh Radnor) and Marshall's (Jason Segel) old college pal who seems to be a bit cursed when it comes to timing. The Blitz comes back into their lives, and his curse gets mysteriously passed on, rendering Turkey Day a bit of a mess.


I caught up with Garcia, Radnor, Segel, Cobie Smulders and guest star Jennifer Morrison -- who ends up hanging out with all of Ted's pals and even hosting them for the holiday -- to find out what's in store for 'Blitzgiving' (Mon., Nov. 22, 8PM ET on CBS). Skateboarding dogs and Robin in KISS makeup anyone? Yes please!

Cobie Smulders Previews This Week's 'How I Met Your Mother' Robin Sparkles Episode (VIDEO)

Robin SparklesPut on your jelly bracelets, and your cool graffiti coat -- it's time for another very special Robin Sparkles episode of 'How I Met Your Mother.'

Whether she's singing about going to the mall or building sandcastles (where else? In the sand people!), Robin Scherbatsky's '80s Canadian popstar self is a huge 'HIMYM' fan favorite. And how could she not be with lyrics like "You're good at pull-ups and have radical hair" and pals like Tiffany and a sassy robot.

I caught up Cobie Smulders, Robin Scherbatsky herself, to find out what Robin Sparkles is up to in this week's flashback episode (Monday, 8PM ET on CBS). Here's a hint: it involves the return of an '80s TV icon (who also happens to be Canadian), a Pussycat Doll and outerspace.

OK, now that's rad.

Should They Have a Baby on 'How I Met Your Mother'? (VIDEO)

Should They Have a Baby on 'How I Met Your Mother'?When you're in a relationship, it's important to have rules that are as absurd and as complicated as possible. Or maybe that's only necessary if you have a relationship that takes place on a sitcom. Either way, it's what's taking place on 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS).

Robots vs. Wrestlers on 'How I Met Your Mother'Would you rather go to a stuffy party, or would you rather see robots fighting wrestlers? The answer, of course, is obvious. Any sane human being would choose robots versus wrestlers. But the solution turns out to be not so clear-cut on 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS).

A Romantic Triangle on 'How I Met Your Mother'It's three guys and one girl on 'How I Met Your Mother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS). The show is weaving a complex romantic tapestry, but funniness and embarrassment are generally the end result.

Robin (Cobie Smulders) is considering moving in with her new boyfriend Don. But this reignites the passion of her old flames Ted and Barney (played by Josh Radnor and Neil Patrick Harris). Hanging out with your ex-boyfriends all the time -- as Robin does -- can really complicate your life.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Twin Beds' Recap

By now, it's not much of a stretch to say that most 'How I Met Your Mother' fans have moved on from both the Ted-Robin and the Barney-Robin relationships. They're both over, kaput, donezo. Robin's moved on, and the guys have moved on, and we're all ready to explore how the gang conducts their lives as just friends.

Which is why, despite the fact that this episode had a number of good laughs, I just sat there for the entire 22 minutes thinking, "I don't buy this." I know that a sitcom like this needs romantic tension in order to survive, but what went on this week felt pretty contrived, as if Bays and Thomas couldn't think of another romantic direction for Ted, Robin, and Barney, so they decided to tread on old ground not once, but twice.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Home Wreckers' Recap

(S05E20) It figures that right after I do a long post about the prominence of silly standalone episodes on 'HIMYM' this year, Bays and Thomas come back with an episode that could both stand alone and be part of the "mythology" of the show. And it gave us a new drinking game, to boot.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Zoo Or False' Recap

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Zoo Or False'
(S05E19)
Many of the episodes of 'HIMYM' this season have been slapsticky and silly, but mostly in a good way. It's part of the effort of Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and their crew to not get so bogged down in the "mythology" of the Mother story, allowing them to touch on it much less than they used to. It also sets up some nice standalone episodes for syndication.

Sometimes the silliness works, sometimes it doesn't. This time it worked. And because it worked, I won't get the phase "mugged by a monkey" out of my head for quite a while.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Say Cheese' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 22nd 2010 11:46PM
The cast of 'How I Met Your Mother'(S05E18) Ever come across an episode of one of your favorite shows that just felt half-baked to you? Sure, it had its funny moments, but there was something about the main story that begged to be explored a bit more. Or maybe one of the B-stories looked like it had more potential but it just ended up being either a one-note joke or dropped altogether.

This episode had both. I wanted the main story of Ted always bringing around his "skanks" to group celebrations to be tied in a little more to his search for the all-exalted mother. And I also wanted to see more about both Barney's and Marshall's relative abilities in front of a camera lens. Both left me dissatisfied.

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Of Course' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 9th 2010 3:45AM
Jennifer Lopez & Neil Patrick Harris, 'How I Met Your Mother'(S05E17) Let's see ... this week, we got Ted in the future telling his kids the story that Barney told a police officer after he'd been pulled out of the Hudson River. So did we get Barney's version of events, or the version Ted might remember from his own role?

I'm going with this being Barney's version of events, because it's the only way I can justify the way in which Ted described to Barney the "super-date." All in all, there were several moments that made me smile, but I wasn't laughing as hard as I usually do during an episode of 'How I Met Your Mother.'

However, I'll forgive the episode that because it did entertain me and more importantly-- it gave us all some much needed closure!

'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Hooked' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 2nd 2010 9:24AM
Carrie Underwood and Josh Radnor in 'HIMYM' - 'Hooked'(S05E16) When I was out in LA for the press tour in January, I had the pleasure of watching the table read for this episode. This was the actual Monday-morning table read, not a show for the gathered critics; the writers were sitting by taking notes that would be used to make changes before shooting.

What struck me about the table read was that, despite the fact that it was the first draft and the cast hadn't fully gotten into how exactly they were going to play the script, the episode was funny. People were genuinely laughing, including the writers, who have lived with the script for some time; they weren't cackling in an effort to sell their funny lines. In fact, it was one of the funniest episodes of the season.

Watching the final version, I noticed that not a whole lot changed from that table read. And, even though I knew most of what was coming, I laughed as hard as I did when I was on the set a month and a half ago. If that's not the sign of a top-notch episode, I don't know what is.
