Suit Up for How I Met Your Mother Scoops
TWoP: Basically: new season, lots of fun?
CT: It's great. It's great to have a strong debut, ratings-wise. And we have six episodes shot now, and we'll embark upon seven, eight, nine in a week or so and I love all of them. I think they're coming out great. I think you do get better as you go. It's good to have longevity. It's good to get to Season 4. You start knowing how to do this job better. Everybody. The actors. Our director. The writers. You just build up these muscles and figure it out. And it's a lot of fun. We're having a lot of fun right now.
TWoP: And you're going into syndication...
CT: Our initial round of syndication sales has gone really well. Selling to the big markets that you start with. It takes months and months to sell to all the markets, and we'll just keep our fingers crossed for the rest of the process. But Lifetime picked up the show for cable rights. So it's great to put a show out there as a product and see that there is a strong desire for it. We're so proud of the show. We're thrilled that it will live on in other forms.
TWoP: Are you thinking ahead to Season 5? Or do you not want to get that far ahead yet?
CT: We're always thinking ahead. We shot something for our series finale in year two. We've had a little piece of footage that we shot literally in our first week of season two that is in a vault and we intent to use as part of the ending of the series. So we are always thinking ahead or planning ahead; we know certain markers along the way we want to hit. Along the way you also find stuff. We definitely are securing the ship to a specific point in the horizon.
TWoP: Great. I'm enjoying the ride.
CT: Thank you. I'm really grateful that you watch the show. I appreciate it.
