Katie Holmes The Slutty Pumpkin How I Met Your MotherLike it or not, The Slutty Pumpkin has been revealed.

First mentioned way back in Season 1, The Slutty Pumpkin has been a 'How I Met Your Mother' legend. Ted (Josh Radnor) met Naomi (Katie Holmes) at a Halloween party in 2001, but lost her number and has spent years waiting for her. Now she's back ... and very affectionate.

Here's how CBS describes the episode: "'The Slutty Pumpkin Returns' (Mon., Oct. 31, 8PM ET) -- Ted finally meets his mystery girl in the Slutty Pumpkin costume. Meanwhile, Barney learns he is part Canadian, and Lily has pregnancy brain."

Check out videos and photos of Holmes as The Slutty Pumpkin below!

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.

'How I Met Your Mother'

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.

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!

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

(S05E21)
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.
