CBS Is Working on 'How I Met Your Father'

How I Met Your Mother
Since original ideas are boring, CBS is planning a How I Met Your Mother spinoff called How I Met Your Father. The show would not feature any of the HIMYM cast, but instead would feature a female group of friends also hanging out at MacLaren's Pub, looking for husbands.

It's like American Horror Story, only if the plot were exactly the same every season, just the cast was different.

The show is being created by HIMYM co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas as well as Up All Night creator Emily Spivey.

    The problem with this idea is that it's not the concept of the show that the fans's the cast. They're all so fantastic and bring the whole thing to life. A "How I Met Your Father" show basically just sounds like a dead in the water show about girls getting drunk and complaining about men every episode. CBS, please don't tarnish HIMYM's flawlessness with a crappy spinoff show just for money.

    That idea seems less diverse and more repetitive. Not sold on it, but I would need to see evidence first to form a true opinion anyway.
