'How I Met Your Dad' Not Picked Up By CBS, Will Be Shopped Around at Other Networks

How I Met Your Dad, the spinoff series to How I Met Your Mother, was sadly not picked up by CBS.

Though the network has until end of day today to change their mind, it is very unlikely. Twentieth Century Fox is planning on shopping the rights around to other networks, however, and it has reportedly already received some interest, Deadline reports!

“To say we love this show (HIMYM) is an understatement,” CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said. “There were elements of the pilot that didn’t work.” She added, “Creative always drives the business. I’m heartsick, as it is a very important show. It didn’t work out.”

How I Met Your Dad was supposed to star Greta Gerwig in the leading role, with Meg Ryan voicing the mother.

ARE YOU UPSET with CBS’ decision to pass on How I Met Your Dad???
