In a March interview with Entertainment Weekly, How I Met Your Mother co-creator Carter Bays said, "At the end of the season, we will address the title of our show."

Neil Patrick Harris confirmed to Michael Ausiello that yes, ""We're going to learn all about the goat in the season finale."

The season finale of the ever more popular How I Met Your Mother is tonight! As Josh Radnor told our own Mike Ryan in January, "I would rather be a smaller number of peoples' favorite show than everybody's twentieth favorite show." It's becoming apparent that HIMYM is becoming a lot of people's favorite show.

Tonight, join Mike Ryan for the 8:30 pm ET finale as he live blogs (live blog will start around 8:15 pm) what is sure to be one of the most ... wait for it ... legendary episodes in the history of How I Met Your Mother. Finally, fellow citizens, it's the goat episode!


The live blog will begin around 8:15 pm ET.
