Additionally, creators slash executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are already in contract with 20th Century Fox TV for three more years. The renewal of "HIMYM" also means they have to work double their time for the studio has also appointed them to create a new but not yet titled show about a young couple and their friends in Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile, THR said "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory" are in the midst of a multi-year pickup. CBS has renewed as well, "Survivor" for two more seasons and "The Amazing Race" for one more season.

I'm really sad for this show. The first few seasons were incredible. Barney Stinson was a god. But during Season 4 this show got messed up. Season 5 was trash. The most recent episodes of HIMYM are mindless stupidity meant for the brainless monkeys that are the majority of TV-watching Americans. Enjoy your sixth season of trash.
