A How I Met Your Mother Community
CBS (ended 2014)


THIS FEELS LIKE SOMETHING TED WOULD DO

... Someone over at the social analytics platform Canvs decided to mine the Twitter response to How I Met Your Mother's series finale to find out what the people really thought (I guess that guy hasn't yet seen Frozen and doesn't know how to let it go). According to the data, the reaction to the finale was more positive than negative. More than twice as many people said they enjoyed it than said that it sucked. According to Canvs founder and CEO Jared Feldman, "The platform only analyzes tweets it is sure it can interpret accurately," which means all of the tweets that were just a giant middle finger to Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were not included in the sample size.

BUSINESS TIME

... With the end of the season quickly approaching, four of Grey's Anatomy's hardworking doctors have opted to sign new contracts. Justin Chambers, Sara Ramirez, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr. will all be around through Season 12 (should ABC choose to keep Grey's around that long). They join leads Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, who have already renewed their contracts with ABC. [TV Guide]

... Lifetime has ordered eight episodes of Child Genius, a new competition series based on a UK format. It will follow America's smartest smartypants and their families as they prepare to compete in a national intelligence competition testing their knowledge of logic, current affairs, history, memory, science, spelling, math, and debate. Remember when childhood was about running, jumping, and climbing trees, and not about parents needing to prove their children are smarter than everyone else's? [Deadline]

... Downton Abbey's Jim Carter and his wife, actress Imelda Staunton, are teaming up with folk band Show Of Hands to record an album of war-inspired poetry to mark the anniversary of World War I. What I'm taking away from this is not that Jim and Imelda need to get out more, but the fact Mr. Carson is married to Dolores Umbridge! [The Telegraph]

... MTV, the land of pregnant teens, hunky werewolves, and fake lesbians, has ordered a cast-contingent pilot from Paul O'Toole (Sirens) and Andy St. Clair (Sirens). The untitled comedy project follows Andy, a 22-year-old who gets into a car accident with a celebrity after catching his girlfriend cheating on him. Naturally, said celebrity takes pity on Andy and decides he's going to teach him how to nut up. If you'll excuse me, I need to go ram my car into Walton Goggins' car for completely unrelated reasons.

CASTING NEWS

... Ray Romano has joined the cast of HBO's as-yet-untitled drama pilot about rock 'n' roll in 1970s New York. The project, which comes from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, George Mastras, and Terence Winter, stars Bobby Cannavale as a record executive who's trying to restart his label with a new sound. Romano will play Richie’s BFF and righthand man Zak Yankovich. The character is described as "tough and sharp-witted," and his experience dates back to the days when the mob had its fingers in the record industry. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple. This sounds super cool, but it better not interfere with Parenthood if/when it's renewed by NBC! [Deadline]
