On the Set: 'How I Met Your Mother'


Over the last six seasons, How I Met Your Mother has continually proved itself to be the most layered, inventive and uproarious comedy on television thanks to a winning combination of Rubik's Cube-like storytelling and an undeniably appealing cast.

Now, as Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and Josh Radnor head into season seven, the show is also heading into uncharted territory as Lily and Marshall prep for a baby, Ted rededicates himself to love's quest and Barney tackles the possimpible of a real relationship.
