I wasn't really sure that How I Met Your Mother would last a full season when it debuted in 2005. Convoluted story-telling, a narrative constructed entirely of flashbacks: I didn't dislike the CBS sitcom, but it seemed to me it had too many hurdles for viewers, who would scratch their heads and then click on past to another channel.
Now it's 2010 and not only is How I Met Your Mother ready to launch its sixth season -- but it's even going into broadcast syndication. It launches on Sept. 13, just six days shy of the fifth anniversary of the show's original debut. In South Florida, you can find it on WBFS-MyNet 33, with back-to-back episodes airing at 7 and 7:30 p.m. on weekdays.
