“How I Met Your Mother” Renewed For Two More Seasons

The chances of Two and A Half Men returning to the tube are about as solid as Lindsay Lohan’s odds of staying out of jail past next week, but the future looks bright for another popular CBS sitcom. The network has greenlit How I Met Your Mother for another two season, show producers said over the weekend.

The Bad News here? Well, you’re probably not going to find out who the mother is until 2013!

That’s all good with Neil Patrick Harris, who plays suited womanizer Barney on the comedy, now in its sixth season. He could barely contain his excitement after learning of the renewal.

“HIMYM picked up for 2 more years! Yahoo! With so much job security, I should buy something extravagant. Like a pony. Or some gold teeth!” the actor Tweeted.
