We promised ourselves that we wouldn’t cry, but we don’t think it’s a promise we’ll be able to keep! The thing is, tonight, after 9 years on the television, the final ever episode of How I Met Your Mother will be aired. And we’re pretty terrified about how it’s all going to turn out.
The HIMYM cast were chosen perfectly
The show has become one of the best loved series of all time, with an enthusiastic fan base who we’re sure will be devastated to see it come to an end. But how has HIMYM become so successful and how does it fare up against other well-loved ensemble cast shows?

Should Judd Apatow still be taking revenge for the 'Freaks and Geeks' cancellation? Of course
‘Freaks and Geeks’ may have only lasted for one season, but the show has had an enduring legacy, not least of all for producer Judd Apatow who has just called his whole career 'revenge' for its cancellation. With just 18 episodes (only 12 of which NBC aired), how can such a little show have made such a big impact? Well you only have to look at the list of people who came together on the ‘Freaks and Geeks’ set to understand while we’re still talking about it 14 years later. James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel are just a few of the names who started their careers in the McKinley high cafeteria.
Judd Apatow is still taking revenge for the cancellation of 'Freaks and Geeks'
Firstly if you’ve never seen or heard of ‘Freaks and Geeks’, you need to go and find a way to watch it, now.

The US are gearing up for the launch of a new comedy show called Sirens. Sirens will be aired on USA Network and is a remake of the British comedy of the same name. The series is a based around the shenanigans of three Chicago emergency medical technicians. Does shenanigans sound like a light-hearted way to describe what EMTs do on the job?

Claire Danes Starred in 'My So Called Life'
The pilot episode has been penned by Denis Leary and Bob Fisher. Leary was the co-creator of TV show Rescue Me while Bob Fisher is the name behind hit comedy movie Wedding Crashers.

The producers managed to sneak that one past everyone.
With the first of nine final How I Met Your Mother episodes having aired last night, the countdown to the end has begun. For the HIMYM team, however, the countdown has been running for a few years – ever since they filmed the last scene of the last episode sometime during season two, News.com.au reports.
The actors have been at this for nine years.
The premise of the entire series is that sometime in the future, Josh Radnor’s character, Ted, is telling his kids the longwinded story of how he met their mother. In the early years of the show, the kids, played by David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca, were often seen sitting on a couch, listening to the story and looking utterly bored.
The sitcom’s creators apologise after “racist” storyline set in China.
An apology has been sent out by the team behind How I Met Your Mother, sorry for the offence that last night's episode 'Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra' caused. The episode, which was partly set in China, was accused of being racist by some fans who used the Twitter hashtag "#HowIMetYourRacism" to criticise a scene in which the cast were shown with make-up, costumes and accents that some deemed offensive.
The 'HIMYM' Team Disappointed Many Of Their Fans With Themes Of Racial Appropriation.
The episode sees Jason Segel's character Marshall travel to China, where he met characters from Kung Fu films which were played by regular cast members Jash Radnor, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders. The three were accused of using "yellowface," which is the practice of wearing yellow face paint to make oneself seem more East Asian.
The 'How I Met Your Mother' star will play the novelist opposite the 'Social Network' actor.
Jason Segel is to play the late writer David Foster Wallace in the upcoming movie, The End of the Tour, which will be based on David Lipsky's Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace.
Jason Segel Is Reportedly Set To Play David Foster Wallace In A Biopic.
The novel, which was written in 2010 by the Rolling Stone journalist, detailed Lipsky's road trip with the author as Wallace toured America promoting his new book, Infinite Jest. The biopic will see How I Met Your Mother actor Segel take the lead role whilst The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg is set to play Lipsky, according to The Wrap.

Beware, what follows is a very spoiler-y recap of HIMYM Season 9, Episode 3, "Last Time In New York"
The final season of How I Met Your Mother is going on full speed ahead (tear) and last week’s episode saw the chaos surrounding Barney and Robin’s wedding continue to unfold. Do we even need to explain that this recap will contain ALL OF THE SPOILERS? No? Ok. The couple try to find a place where they can be alone before the wedding and before “those old b***ards latch onto us like leeches.” As you can guess, by “those b***ards” they mean their relatives.
The wedding stress is finally catching up with Barney and Robin.
Meanwhile, Marshall continues his heroic quest to Farhampton. He’s making headway, but unfortunately, we’re not quite at the end of the season, so that probably means he’ll have to go through a few more challenges before making it. This week it was Wisconsin – for you non-football fans, that’s the home of the Green Bay Packers – sworn rivals of Marshall’s dearest Vikings. Without spoiling too much, things get intense.

Among the CBS TV show actors arriving at the network's 2013 Upfront Presentation in New York were Sharon Osbourne from 'The Talk' (who doesn't refrain from her usual face-pulling shenanigans) and the cast of 'How I Met Your Mother' Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan.
When actor James Franco threw a party for his fellow movie stars including the star-studded cast of 'Knocked Up' and several stars of Seth Rogen's comedies including Seth himself, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, no-one expected it to be anything more than your average drink fuelled Hollywood superparty. However, things take a turn for the worst when they experience a major earthquake; the ground opens up to the hottest depths of the Earth's core swallowing up Rihanna and Jason Segal as mysterious beasts start swarming around outside. What's a comedy cast to do with limited food and no real skills of the like they portray in the movies - especially when golden girl Emma Watson bursts in on them wielding an axe demanding all their resources. This is Hollywood versus the apocalypse, but who would really win?

The Muppets star has turned his hand to writing books for kids
Jason Segel, comedy screen star and Forgetting Sarah Marshall co-writer is turning his hand to writing children’s books, according to CBS News. Segel will be co-writing the books with Kirsten Miller, the author of the best-selling series The Eternal Ones. Entitled Nightmares! the tale is an adventure story about kids who are trying to save their town from fear, after it becomes over-run by nightmare creatures that have taken over the everyday world.
Segel commented in a press release: “Ultimately, it's a story about learning that we can accomplish anything, as long as we are brave enough to try. These are the types of stories that always inspired me." He originally wrote the story as a movie project but decided to reverse-adapt it into a book series for children. A spokesperson for Random House, who will be publishing the books, commented “Jason Segel has the perfect voice to write for children. Nightmares! is inventive, genuine, and relatable to middle-grade readers. We're thrilled to see Jason's creative vision translated to the page, and can't wait to introduce him to the publishing world as a tremendous new talent."
The first book in the Nightmares! series is due to be published in 2014. Meanwhile, Segel is awaiting the release of This Is The End, a comedy in which he features alongside Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and James Franco.

Relationship break-up news: Jason Segel and Michelle Williams have reportedly ended their relationship
The actors Michelle Williams and Jason Segel have called time on their long-distance love affair. Williams, 32 and Segel, 33 quietly ended their relationship last month, Us Magazine revealed, after speaking to sources close to the celebrity couple. Despite the couple seeming happy together, it appears that the pressures of long distance travel, in order to see each other had put too much of a strain on their relationship.
Michelle and Jason were recently spotted holidaying in Cancun, with Busy Phillips (one of Michelle’s best mates) and they seemed happy enough but it seems that the distance has taken it’s toll on Michelle, who also has her 7 year-old daughter Matilda to consider (the kid she had with the late Heath Ledger). Michelle and Matilda live in New York City, whilst Jason has been based in Los Angeles, where his CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother is filmed. When the couple got together in March last year, they managed to keep their coupling under wraps for some time and it seems that they may have achieved the same with their split, until now.
These two aren’t the only Hollywood acting couple to have succumbed to the nightmare of long distance relationships though. Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen also quit their long-distance relationship recently, too.
