CBS announced the series it was picking up last Friday, and the How I Met Your Mother spin-off, re-boot, re-whatever How I Met Your Dad didn’t make the cut. A couple days later CBS announced it was done with the show.
This means the show could find a home on another network, and if all those insider-y entertainment trade mags are to be believed, there’s interest out there, though no networks were named specifically.
When asked why CBS passed on it, an exec said, “There were elements of the pilot that didn’t work out,” which although, vague, conveys that the network just didn’t think the show was very good, rather than citing marketing concerns of something like that.
Maybe they just thought people would be sick of McLaren’s pub.
