Neil Patrick Harris liked the ending of 'How I Met Your Mother' -- VIDEO

Note to those who loved the series finale of How I Met Your Mother: Neil Patrick Harris is in your corner!

In an interview with David Letterman on The Late Show, airing tonight, the actor told the host that even though there was a fan outcry over the series finale — which ended with Ted (Josh Radnor) getting back together with Robin (Cobie Smulders) after the death of the titular Mother (Cristin Milioti) — he was “a big fan” of it.

“It wasn’t necessarily the happy ending that people were expecting,” said Harris, who’s currently starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway. “But Carter [Bays] and Craig [Thomas], who were once writers on your show and the executive producers and creators, knew this ending years ago and had played towards that. And I was a big proponent of it and a big fan of it.” READ FULL STORY

As history’s longest family meeting draws to an end, and Josh Radnor begins his final transformation into Bob Saget, the cast of How I Met Your Mother is preparing for their ninth and last season to draw to a close Monday night with the airing of the show’s series finale.

'How I Met Your Mother' star Alyson Hannigan nabs female lead in Ben Affleck, Matt Damon-produced CBS pilot

Could Alyson Hannigan be coming back to TV after the end of How I Met Your Mother? Possibly.

EW has confirmed that the actress has nabbed the lead role in the CBS pilot More Time With Family, a multi-camera comedy produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

The pilot, which received a put pilot commitment (a “put pilot” increases the likelihood a project will receive a series order as the network faces penalties if it’s never aired) back in October, stars Tom Papa, who plays a man who undergoes a career change to spend more time at home with his family. It is based on Papa’s stand-up comedy and Damon’s experiences. Papa is also set to write and executive producer alongside Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa.

Hannigan will play Papa’s onscreen wife, Cindy.

Hannigan is the most recent HIMYM alum to land a role in an upcoming pilot. Earlier this week, Cristin Milioti was cast as the lead in Rashida Jones’ pilot for NBC.

How I Met Your Mother will finish its nine season run on March 31 with an hour-long episode.
