Default How viewers turned against How I Met Your Mother

Back during its run, it was on practically every other station in syndication. And then of course, they actually show wrapped up on CBS and aired that polarizing (to put things kindly) finale where they killed off the titular mother (with the the twist being that the mother was nothing more than a footnote at the end of that extremely long winded tale), broke up Robin and Barney (whether or not they should've been together in the first place and how much sense it made is up for debate within itself) after spending the whole final season on their impending wedding, and then had Ted pining for Robin again.

While the show is still in reruns somewhere, it does seem to have faded from memory quickly. What doesn't help that most of the cast hasn't gone on to anything else.
