"How I Met Your Dad" looks dead at CBS, but is there a possibility it could end up on another network?
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday morning, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said, "There were elements on the pilot that didn't work out. We tried to work out redoing the pilot. That's not happening right now."
There are reports that Fox, which produced "How I Met Your Mother" and the "How I Met Your Dad" pilot, wanted a series commitment before it would reshoot the pilot and CBS refused.
I haven't seen the "HIMYD" pilot, but I can tell you that the folks at CBS know what they're doing. They rejected the original "Big Bang Theory" pilot and, after some recasting and rewriting, that turned into the biggest sitcom on TV. And this season, CBS picked up the sitcom "The McCarthys," which it rejected a year ago before it was recast, rewritten, reshot and switched from a filmed comedy to a multi-camera sitcom.<
