COLIN VICK­ERY OUT OF THE BOX

HOWI MET YOUR MOTHER, Chan­nel 7, 9.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Monday -

WHY hasn’t How I Met Your Mother ever con­nected with Aus­tralian au­di­ences like Two and a Half Men? I bet that is the ques­tion Chan­nel 7 ex­ec­u­tives have asked many times. The Char­lie Sheen sit­com pro­vided years of rat­ings gold for ri­val Nine. This Neil Pa­trick Har­ris com­edy has never achieved the same level of success. Now in its eighth sea­son it lan­guishes at 9.30pm. Tonight Ted (Josh Rad­nor) has to fi­nally ad­mit to him­self that his girl­friend Jeanette is more than a lit­tle crazy. It is time to break up if he’s got the guts. There is no deny­ing that How I Met Your Mother has plenty of smart laughs. What it lacks is heart.
