‘How I Met Your Mother’ Series Finale and ‘Friends with Better Lives’ Premiere Dates Announced by CBS

The How I Met Your Mother gang will suit up for the final time on Monday, March 31st with a one-hour series finale beginning at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. The network is hoping you will be ready to trade in one set of buddies for another as their new series Friends with Better Lives launches immediately following the finale event. Friends with Better Lives focuses on six friends all at different stages of their lives who are all pretending to be happy while secretly envying each other’s lifestyles.

Once Ted Mosby finally meets the mother of his kids, CBS will reshuffle their Monday night lineup so that 2 Broke Girls kicks off the evening at 8pm beginning April 14th. Meanwhile, Friends with Better Lives will benefit from a The Big Bang Theory (repeat) lead-in on April 7th before premiering in its 8:30pm regular timeslot.
