"Mother" sold to WFLD and WPWR

Twentieth Television has sold off-network repeats of How I Met Your Mother to the WFLD/WPWR duopoly in Chicago beginning in fall 2010. The CBS comedy has been on the air since 2005, and has seen its ratings rise this past season as part of the network’s Monday night lineup.

WFLD/WPWR has already picked up The Office for next fall.

In addition to WFLD/WPWR, Twentieth has sold Mother to sister Fox stations WNYW/WWOR in New York and KTTV/KCOP in Los Angeles.

Other clearances include WPSG-TV Philadelphia, WSBK-TV Boston, and KTXA-TV in Dallas – all CBS-owned (but not affiliated) stations. Hearst-Argyle’s KQCA-TV in Sacramento-Stockon, Calif. has also picked up the show.

Meanwhile, here’s an interview with one of the stars of the show, Dr. Horrible and Doggie Howser himself, Neil Patrick Harris.
