'How I Met Your Mother' Switches Slots with 'The Big Bang Theory'
'How I Met Your Mother' Switches Slots with 'The Big Bang Theory'
Last week, we mentioned that the CBS comedy, How I Met Your Mother, will be among the first to resume airing new installments when it returns with fresh material come March 17.  Despite such an upbeat prospect though, there remains the cloud of uncertainty as the sitcom is still waiting for news of being renewed for another season.

While it remains in limbo, How I Met Your Mother will switch time slots with another comedy, The Big Bang Theory, which has already been picked up for a second season.

A few days after CBS announced its lineup of renewed programs, where How I Met Your Mother was conspicuously absent, the network also released a schedule change for some of its programs when the new episodes go on air.  The revised schedule finds the already-picked up Big Bang Theory sliding into Monday's 8pm time slot starting March 17, taking over How I Met Your Mother's current position.  How I Met Your Mother will move half an hour later to Big Bang Theory's original 8:30pm post.

In other news, Bob Saget, who narrates How I Met Your Mother, will be onstage at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater on April 19.  Saget, best known for his years on Full House and as host of America's Funniest Home Videos, spoke to AmericaJR about his upcoming gig as well as How I Met Your Mother.

"It's really a great show,” Saget told AmericaJR.  “Now that the writers' strike is over, thank goodness all the writers are going back that are able to.  The people on the show are so talented.  The lead guy, Josh Radnor, you know I get to be his voice projected into the future.  I just think it's a really great show.  It's kind of a love letter to romantic situations.”

"I've also known a lot of the cast for a really long time,” Saget added.  Alyson Hannigan [Lily Aldrin on How I Met Your Mother], was actually a babysitter when she was 15 years old.  I put her in the HBO special that I did when she was 16.  Neil Patrick Harris [Barney Stinson] I know from the old ABC days.  It's a very nice thing to be a part of."
