(CBS/AP) Although Charlie Sheen's antics halted what was left of this season's "Two and a Half Men," TV fans can enjoy two more years of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother."
The renewal agreement between CBS and producer Twentieth Century Fox Television was announced on Monday, extending the show to 2012-2013.
The show's five central stars - Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders - are each signed for two more years.
Harris shared the good news on his Twitter account Saturday, writing, "HIMYM picked up for 2 more years! Yahoo! With so much job security, I should buy something extravagant. Like a pony. Or some gold teeth!"
The announcement brings a degree of certainty to at least one show in the CBS Monday-night lineup after production wason "Two and a Half Men." If the current troubles between the network and Sheen cannot be solved, "HIMYM" is a candidate to move into the "Men" time slot.
Six years in, there's still no word from producers on when they'll introduce the future wife of Radnor's character.
