CBS Orders More How I Met Your Mother


CBS is showing the love to How I Met Your Mother: Vulture hears the network has just ordered two extra episodes of the Monday-night hit, bringing to 24 the number of half-hours to be produced this season. HIMYM has become a rock for the Eye's Monday lineup, holding off monster competition from both House and Dancing With the Stars; the three shows now basically tie for first place in the all-important adults 18 to 49 demo. What's more, HIMYM is one of the youngest-skewing series on the CBS lineup. There's also good news for Robin Sparkles fans: Producers tweeted this week that they've begun production on an episode revealing the next chapter of the Sparkles saga, in which we're expected to meet long-lost partner Glitter. If it's filming now, expect the episode to air sometime before year's end.
