One of my favorite currently-running sitcom is CBS' How I Met Your Mother. It's a cleverly conceptual comedy that, in many ways, picked up the ball right where Friends left it. We all knew the end was in sight, but today the official air date for the series finale has been revealed.
The hour-long final episode will air on March 31st, 2014.
We also now know that 2 Broke Girls (starring and ) will take over HIMYM's timeslot after a couple of subsequent weeks of reruns.
What's unique about How I Met Your Mother is that from the very start, it has set up its finale to be a big event, the culmination of one long singular story. I'm sad to see it go, but so excited to see how that long-winded saga, as many stories from our fathers can be, ends. Not sure 2 Broke Girls is the right filler for that spot, but I suppose something has to go there.
What do you guys think?
