“HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER” SERIES FINALE (8 p.m., CBS): OK, so it wasn’t always “legendary,” to use someone’s favorite word. But over nine seasons, “HIMYM” amused us, and moved us, and provided us with all kinds of silly catchphrases. Now, the gang suits up for its hourlong season finale and, if all goes well, Barney and Robin (Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders) will get hitched and Ted (Josh Radnor) will finally meet his one true love (Cristin Milioti). See story at right for more.
“Friends With Better Lives” (9 p.m., CBS): How do you replace “HIMYM”? Just bring on another sitcom about young, attractive white people searching for love and happiness, and call it “Friends With Better Lives.” The cast includes James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly.
“House of Food” (10 p.m., MTV): Think of “House of Food” as a blend of “Top Chef” and “The Real World.” It’s a culinary competition that has eight untrained young cooks living together in a house and vying for the chance to apprentice with some master chefs.
