"How I Met Your Mother" to reveal alternate ending

Behind the Scenes Coverage: Ted finally finishes telling his kids the story of how he met their mother, on the one-hour series finale of "How I Met Your Mother" on CBS. Ron P. Jaffe/CBS

Mondays just won't be the same without "How I Met Your Mother."


The CBS sitcom, which saw its final episode air last week after nine seasons, left many viewers divided: some loved it, others thought it was far from legendary.

Although co-creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays said they shot the final scene many years ago (for fear that Ted's children would look older), it now comes out that they had two different endings and were trying to decide between them -- up until the very end.




And lucky for us -- we'll get to see the alternate ending on the upcoming "HIMYM" DVD collection, due out this fall.

Tell us: Did you like the ending to "How I Met Your Mother"?
