NPH on The ‘HIMYM’ Finale

How I Met Your Mother's series finale will go down in history as one of the most divisive ends to a TV show ever. Yes, nearly three years later, people are still talking about it, and no, some of them are still not happy about it. 

But HIMYM star Neil Patrick Harris is not one of those guys. In fact, he was more than happy to defend the series finale when he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "I would've ended it the exact same way," NPH said when a caller asked how he would have ended the show. "I was very pro the finale. I thought that the writing was fantastic. I loved that as the show went on, it went from sort of juvenile, adolescent twentysomethings into people in their 30s and through that they grow, and you realize that people are more complicated than they first seem to be. So I was a big, big fan of it." 

In case you were wondering, Bob Saget, who narrated the show as older Ted Mosby, also praised the HIMYM series finale during a previous visit to the Bravo Clubhouse. "I love the show, and I thought they did a really beautiful job," he told Andy Cohen.

As for whether or not we'll see more of HIMYM in the future, NPH thought it was a little too soon when he appeared on WWHL in 2015. "Everyone's kind of gone off and are doing their own stuff," he said.
