'How I Met Your Mother' Season 9, episode 15 - 'Unpause': Something good (and bad) happens after 2 a.m.

Since the title of Monday's (Jan. 20) episode of "How I Met Your Mother" is "Unpause," let's employ Marshall and Lily's fight-stalling tactic in discussing it. Much of it was a lot of fun, but I have one major beef with it. So ...Pause.Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas said last week that we would learn the name of Ted's kids in this episode, but it still came as a pleasant surprise to see the episode open with Ted and his very pregnant wife about to welcome their second child. The show continues to be spot-on with its depiction of the Mother, which is helping Ted makes note of his own mom's rule that "nothing good happens after 2 a.m." and says the baby better hurry up. He doesn't, though, and when we return to Ted and the Mother at episode's end, Future Ted notes every rule has its exception -- aww. And those kids'... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/how-i-met-your-mother-season-9-episode-15-unpause-something-good-and-bad-happens-after-2-am.html

'How I Met Your Mother': CBS 'excited' to see how spinoff comes together

CBS chief Nina Tassler jokes that she's "already handing out boxes of Kleenex" in anticipation of the "How I Met Your Mother" series finale in March.She's also pretty eager to see how a spinoff from the show works out. The network is working on "How I Met Your Dad," which will follow a new set of characters and center on a female character's search for love. "HIMYM" creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are co-creating the series with Emily Spivey ("Up All Night").While there won't be any on-screen overlap between "HIMYM" and "How I Met Your Dad," Tassler still considers the new show a spinoff."I think it is a spinoff because it is Carter and Craig -- they brought in Emily Spivey, but the way the show is structured, the way the story is told, the way the characters will come to learn about the dad, it does follow in form like 'How I Met... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/how-i-met-your-mother-cbs-excited-to-see-how-spinoff-comes-together.html

TV ratings: 'Intelligence' stumbles badly Monday, 'Blacklist' does OK without 'The Voice'

Fast National ratings for Monday, Jan. 13, 2014The time-period premiere of "Intelligence" on CBS Monday fell badly in the ratings, losing more than half the audience from its "NCIS"-aided debut last week. It was a rough end to an otherwise decent ratings night for the Eye -- all four of CBS' comedies were up, and "How I Met Your Mother" scored the night's best 18-49 rating.Elsewhere Monday, "The Blacklist" hit a season low without "The Voice" as a lead-in but still held up reasonably well, winning the 10 p.m. hour across the board. "Sleepy Hollow" was steady for FOX, and "Almost Human" rose some. "The Bachelor" dipped from its premiere last week on ABC.ABC averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.4 rating/8 share in households for the night, beating CBS (8 million, 5.0/8) for the top spot.

'How I Met Your Mother' and the Slap of a Million Exploding Suns

The first 2014 episode of "How I Met Your Mother" did not advance the wedding-weekend story in any way. In fact, in terms of time on the wedding weekend, probably no more than 10 minutes elapsed.And it was really funny stuff. "Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra"* was a love-slap to long-time fans of the show, telling the story of the fourth slap in Barney and Marshall's bet. Callbacks aplenty -- including a passel of cameos by exes of Barney's -- and a story that unfolded almost entirely in flashback made this "HIMYM" feel more like vintage "HIMYM" than most episodes in the past season or two have.(*The title is a takeoff on "Appointment in Samarra," a classic story about a man who sees Death and then goes to great lengths to avoid him. Death tells another character he was just surprised to see him, since he has an appointment with him in Samarra the next... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/how-i-met-your-mother-and-the-slap-of-a-million-exploding-suns.html
