Despite the dated inclusion of a laugh track, How I Met Your Mother is one of the best comedies on TV and now it’s getting a sixth season according to The Hollywood Reporter. Being a staple of CBS’ Monday night comedies, the early pick-up isn’t much of a surprise. The show has garnered both critical praise and a strong fan following, both of which are well-deserved. Everyone knows the NPH is great, but the full cast is terrific and the framing device combined with the way each episode is edited makes HIMYM stand apart from other comedies on TV.
With the renewal of How I Met Your Mother, CBS has locked down its Monday night comedy line-up with The Big Bang Theory (yay!) set to return as well as Two and a Half Men (plague!).
