Looks like the controversial How I Met Your Mother finale is officially the last we'll see of epic-length flashback sitcoms on CBS.
An HIMYM spin-off entitled How I Met Your Dad was set to premiere on the network later this year, but the newly released CBS schedule reveals that the show does not have a spot in the fall line-up.
"Things on the pilot didn't work out," CBS exec Nina Tassler said of the series.
With CBS exercising its right of first refusal, the much-talked about series can now be shopped elsewhere. Given the negative press surrounding the show, however, its odds of being scooped up by another network are slim.
