Recently CBS has greenlit the pilot for the spin-off to one of their popular comedies, ‘How I Met Your Mother’. The new show will be called ‘How I Met Your Dad’. Just based off that title, it seems like the show won’t be swaying too much away from the formula of the original and seems like a way to keep the show alive once the last season finishes up in May.
The question, now that the spin off has been made official, is will it be anywhere near as successful as the original? It could very well be as there are some spin-offs that are successful. Take ‘Frasier’ as an example, since it was a spin-off of ‘Cheers’ and was very success in its 11 season run. But then their are times when spin-offs are not successful. I want to bring up one example in particular that ‘How I Met Your Dad’ will probably want nothing in common with.
