Yes, it's a brand new fall television season, which means you can look forward to many posts espousing the greatness of How I Met Your Mother (aka, the best show on tv). I love the show because it's so funny I can't eat while I'm watching for fear of choking - and also because it's still trying to rally a regular audience (despite critical success), so CBS is pulling all sorts of great social media tricks to generate word of mouth about the show.
It started with the MySpace page, which gained traction after the famed Slap Bet/Robin Sparkles episode last season. Then, they launched Barney's Blog (which is actually hilarious) and started offering extended scenes from various episodes - making the page a must-see for die hard fans looking for a little more. The series premier continued the trend - not only was unseen "hot tub scene" footage up on MySpace, but Marshall's hysterical threat to Barney about www.slapbetcountdown.com of course turned out to be a real website. The countdown currently stands at roughly 52 days - I would be shocked if it didn't evolve as the date draws closer.
If you've heard about the show, and want to get caught up - check out the MySpace page right now, they have a great 2-minute rundown video of the first two seasons. (But, keep in mind this is a 30-minute comedy folks, you can watch it whenever you want without much background and enjoy it...unless you're stupid).
