According to Lifetime's Executive VP of Entertainment, JoAnna Alfano, HIMYM makes a great fit for the network because "It's fresh and contemporary.  There are not a lot of shows out there that are right for us, so it was really important to go after this."

Do you think How I Met Your Mother with womanizer Barney is a good fit for Lifetime?
