Fall TV Preview

How I Met Your Mother Preview: Barney and Robin Get Their 'Groove' On

Put on your dancing shoes! CBS’ How I Met Your Mother is showing off its moves once again during the Season 7 premiere, and we’ve got a video sneak peek.

In the first of two back-to-back episodes airing next Monday starting at 8/7c, Barney and Robin hit the dance floor at Punchy’s wedding. What leads the one-time lovers to perform a hot ‘n’ heavy number — have you seen the pictures?! — in front of everyone?

“It’s an argument about how Robin doesn’t realize what great chemistry [she and Barney] have,” reveals Cobie Smulders. “A song comes on at a wedding, and this huge dance number happens. It takes them both by surprise.”

The moment might come as shock, but the fact that it’s — cue Barney voice — awesome is not. “Robin and Barney’s song-and-dance is out of this world,” raves co-star Jason Segel. “I had the pleasure of watching them film it. It’s extraordinary.”

Check out a preview below and then tell us what you think of Barney and Robin’s mad moves.

  • If Neil Patrick Harris ever decides to join “Dancing with the Stars,” they should just hand him the mirror ball at the start of the first show. He’d be unbeatable!

  • If this show doesn’t have Barney marrying her but instead marrying some girl no one cares about, EPIC FAIl!

    • Come on. You know Barney and Robin are getting married.

      And Ted is going to meet Barney’s half sister Carly at the wedding, and he will end up with her.

      So Aunt Robin and Uncle Barney really are aunt and uncle.

      • If this happens, and I really hope it does, then the writers of this show would truly be awesome. I don’t care if it’s predictable. I’d rather they go this route than try to trick loyal viewers to come up with a big ending that makes no sense…ala Lost.

        • This theory of mine has gone from being out on a limb to looking more and more like a real possibility.

      • Well, it’s not officially an end date, but all signs seem to point to it. Two season pickup. Series going into “endgame” mode. It’s ending next year. Count on it.

  • Is there anything Neil Patrick Harris can’t do? He’s got more talent than the Glee cast combined.

  • Ever since the promo pics for this scene came out, I knew it was going to remind me of the Niles and Daphne tango scene and it didn’t disappoint. Awesome!
