Leading up to this year’s game-changing season finale of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, creators/showrunners Carter Bays and Craig Thomas had been teasing that the ninth and final season would see the show’s narrative take a dramatic shift. Well, following the events of the season eight finale, we now have confirmation of just what kind of shift is taking place and it’s a rather curious move on Bays and Thomas’ part. Hit the jump to read on, but beware that there are spoilers for those who have somehow managed to remain unaware of what happened in the season eight finale. So, in this year’s finale Bays and Thomas finally fessed up and revealed the show’s titular mother. It wasn’t someone that Ted has crossed paths with previously, but was instead an entirely new character played by actress Cristin Milioti. We »

Remember “Ben & Kate,” the sweet little comedy about oddball siblings Fox aired — and pretty quickly canceled — earlier this season? Turns out the network developed a logical single-camera companion to the show, which should provide small comfort to “The Goodwin Games,” a series from the creators of “How I Met Your Mother” being rather conspicuously burned off in the summer heat. Mildly charming but exceptionally thin, it makes it hard to fault Fox for its lack of faith. So let the “Games” begin, but don’t expect many to wind up carrying a torch for it.
The series hinges on a trio of completely unbelievable siblings, reunited by the death of their father (Beau Bridges, in full mad-scientist mode). As if plucked from “Gilligan’s Island,” they include a buttoned-up doctor (Scott Foley), an actress (“Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton) and a nincompoop thief (T.J. Miller) freshly paroled from prison.

‘Himym’ Season 9 — What Can Fans Expect To See?
Not only will the upcoming ninth season reveal everything you could possibly want to know about Ted’s (Josh Radnor) future bride — played by Broadway star Cristin Milioti – but the entire season will also take place over the course of a single weekend!
CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler confirmed the news to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine on May 15, explaining that we’ll get to see “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. … They each meet her independently before he does.”

Well, another mother of a mystery has been solved, just days after CBS’ How I Met Your Mother raised the curtain on the titular lady.
Series cocreator Carter Bays previously revealed that as Himym unspools its ninth and final season, viewers will become “much better” acquainted with Cristin Milioti’s bass-playing cutie – whom we first and briefly laid eyes on at the close of the Season 8 finale — as the show tells “the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever.”

Last year, Fox picked up a comedy from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas called The Goodwin Games. It starred Scott Foley (now hunking it up on Scandal), Becki Newton (most recently Barney's stripper ex-fiancée Quinn on Himym), and Jack Lacy (Pete on The Office) as siblings whose father died, and instead of a will left them a bizarre competition pitting them against each other and against other contestants. This comedy then sat around for a year. A year! Tj Miller (a sitcom utility player and host of Comedy Central's Mash Up) replaced Lacy, and now — after an eternity in TV time — Fox is finally dusting it off. The show will officially air May 20, but the whole pilot is online now. It's cute! Not earth-shatteringly so, but certainly watchably so. »

"It helped that she turned us onto her and then the more we got to know Cristin and see her work, the more we realized, Yeah, she's the right choice. So that definitely helped, because we didn't »

I already reviewed the "How I Met Your Mother" season finale last night, but I have some morning-after thoughts — including words from Carter Bays — on what the episode means for the show's final season, coming up just as soon as we watch a movie that doesn't start with a desk lamp jumping on top of a capital I... Sigh. So last night, I was all excited and optimistic about what the introduction of Cristin Milioti as the Mother (watch the video below if you missed it) would do for the show as it headed into the home stretch. Surely, I »

So, who is the girl with the yellow umbrella?
Her name is Cristin Milioti, a 27-year-old New Jersey actress who’s shown up on Broadway, in films, and on television: The Broadway set will know Milioti as “Girl” in the musical version of Once, a role which earned her a Tony nomination last year; film buffs will recognize her from movies like 2012′s Mike Birbiglia comedy Sleepwalk with Me; and TV fans may remember her from The Sopranos, The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie, or — most notably — 30 Rock.

The unveiling took place in the final few seconds of the season 8 finale, as Milioti’s yet-unnamed character simply walked up to a Long Island Rail Road ticket booth to purchase one ticket to the fictional Farhampton, presumably to go play in the band at the impending nuptials between Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders). The show didn’t exactly spell out the reveal (casual fans could have missed »

Is it finally happening? Will How I Met Your Mother actually reveal Ted's future wife on Monday's Season 8 finale?
That's what a new promo would have you believe (watch below), which urges you to "get ready for the mother of all secrets." Naturally, co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays remains typically coy about the episode's possible unveiling. But with one more season left and two big finale reveals the past two years — Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) getting married and Robin (Cobie Smulders) being his bride, respectively — surely they have something major up their sleeves, right?
