Interesting they are going to shoot in NY. Isn't HIMYM shot in LA?

I restarted HIMYM from the pilot the other day and I realized just how gross this whole premise is. I'm not a parent but do parents sit around and tell their teenage children about people they banged in their 20's? Somehow it's a little more gross to me that this mother is going to sit around telling her kids about all the guys she slept with.

Interesting that a spinoff of a very successful 9 year comedy, with the same creators, has to go through the pilot process, instead of just getting picked up to series.

If you look at it less as a spin-off and more as a completely new series built from scratch that just happens to have the same premise as a recent hit show, then it makes a bit more sense.

Also, let's not forget that this is CBS, which is extremely conservative with its development practices, and also that the most recent high-profile straight-to-series order at the broadcast networks, The Michael J. Fox Show, was recently pulled from the schedule because of horrible ratings. So CBS is going to continue doing what put them at the top of the heap, even in cases where it may not seem necessary.

Umm, in the scenes with the children, it's clear that he cleans up what he is telling them.. Unless you're just referring to ANY of his girlfriends as "people he banged".
