On the "Late Show" Thursday, Neil Patrick Harris opened up about the negative reaction fans had to the "How I Met Your Mother" series finale. He said it was like a compliment to the show in a weird way because fans felt so close to the characters that they wanted things go a certain way. But he also stands behind the creators’ vision because the show called for a more mature, realistic ending. He said, "I’m very proud of our show that it went beyond sort of this sitcom conceit and told a bitter, better story."
