'Raising Hope,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and the obligation of a 'Legendary!' finale

Our TV week is bookended by sitcom goodbyes. It began with the series finale of How I Met Your Mother; it concludes with the capper to Raising Hope, tapping out tonight with back-to-back episodes, including one cheekily entitled “How I Met Your Mullet.” Created by Greg Garcia, who also gave us My Name Is Earl, the four-season-running Raising Hope was a sweet-and-salty sitcom about the daffy-dumb Chance clan — Virginia, the responsible materfamilias (Martha Plimpton); Burt, the air-headed dad (Garret Dillahunt); Jimmy, the teen-son-turned-teen-father (Lucas Neff); and Maw-Maw, the cracked and coarse grandma (Cloris Leachman) — collectively raising the titular babe, and was always a big-hearted, absurd amusement. One of its best episodes was the season 4 premiere, which featured Jeffrey Tambor as Virginia’s deadbeat dad, a self-centered gay man who skipped town because of perceived bigotry that was actually all in his head. The series finale sees the return of Tambor, with a story that thematically brings the series full circle. READ FULL STORY

One person missing from Monday’s How I Met Your Mother finale? Robin Sparkles.

Many fans were hoping for an encore performance from Robin’s Canadian pop star, but it wasn’t meant to be. But — as How I Met Your Mother prop guru David Baker showed on Twitter — a musical moment was shot: Wearing a jean jacket over her wedding dress, Robin channeled Ms. Sparkles and broke out her first hit, “Let’s Go to The Mall,” at her wedding reception, complete with The Mother on bass. (Pause for a moment and ponder the cuteness — and the inevitable heartbreak.) READ FULL STORY

Here's the perfect fan-created 'How I Met Your Mother' ending -- VIDEO

Well, this was inevitable.

After widespread disappointment with the ending of How I Met Your Mother Monday night, one fan took matters into his own hands and re-cut the actual finale footage into a very sweet, moving three-and-a-half minute video.

Ted and The Mother (Tracy) still get their meet-cute under the yellow umbrella, but this time around, there’s no last-minute twist, just perfect Ted voiceover telling his kids about his life and how happy he is to have met their mom. Fade to black.

Watch below, and decide if this is the ending you’ll be adopting in your mind: READ FULL STORY
