How I Met Your Mother
Mon. Feb. 25, 8/7c, CBS
Although Barney supposedly destroyed his infamous relationship playbook, he pulls it out in this week’s episode, “Weekend at Barney’s,” to help Ted get back in the game after his break up with Jeanette. In a tribute to “Weekend at Bernie’s,” the gang is prepared to help Ted get over his ex and find the long awaited mother of his children. Because this hilarious show is in its final season, each episode must be watched and cherished as we count down to the reveal of how Ted really did meet his future partner.
Tues. Feb. 26, 9/8c, FOX
A lot is about to happen in this episode. Winston will take the next step in his sports reporter career as he interviews a professional football player. The player pursues Jess, who has been torn in her love life since Nick laid a late night kiss on her. Back at the apartment, Nick and Schmidt brawl as they set up celebrate their 10 years of being roommates. There is sure to be a lot of screaming and awkward moments, but as always the show should end with a heart-warming message about friendship.
Wed. Feb. 27, 10 p.m., FX, 137
For those who long for the fast paced realism of “24,” “The Americans” is worth checking out, especially this week.

After the history of ice cream class is disbanded, the Greendale group finally gets enrolled in a European history class. German transfer students who scuffled with the gang last year are also in the class, rekindling an old rivalry.

Some of the illicit events that took place last season will be revisited and rumors are flying about what the consequences of these will be.

For fans of awkward cartoons, this one is sure to steal your heart. Reminiscent of Adventure Time or The Amazing World of Gumball, this new series taps into the creativity of “South Park” superstar Ryan Quincy for a toned down show about friendship. Best friends Chad and Chris work together to find Chris a new nickname after the school bully picks a not-so-nice title.
