Reception[edit]

The eighth season of How I Met Your Mother received widespread criticism. The review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes reported that 40% of critics gave it a positive review. The consensus reads: "How I Met Your Mother wears out its welcome this season, with an anticlimactic reveal and rote, less-than-fruitful humor."[27]

Alexander Lowe of We Got This Covered gave the season a negative review, saying "After 8 long years and 192 episodes of How I Met Your Mother, the future Mrs. Ted Mosby has finally been revealed. And it was dreadfully anticlimactic". He gave the season as a whole a 5/10.[28] Matt Roush of TV Guide also gave the season a negative review, writing: "I find it hard not to stifle a yawn. Move on, show, and please give serious thought to wrapping things up this season while we might still care."[29]

While the majority of the reviews were mixed, some were positive, with Donna Bownman from The A.V. Club giving the season a "B" grade.[30]
