How I Met Your Mother is a romantic comedy on CBS set in 2030 that revolves around the story of how Ted (voiced by Bob Saget) met his children's mother 25 years prior. Younger Ted (played by Josh Radnor) is sick of being single and after his best friend gets engaged Ted is motivated to begin looking for his true love. Ted is "helped" out by Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a slick-talking friend with the odd habit of always wearing suits to bars.
