Dissatisfied fans of How I Met Your Mother are campaigning for a new ending after the finale aired in the U.S. on Monday (31Mar14). Despite earning a series-high rating of 12.9 million viewers in America, the final episode of the popular sitcom proved to be polarising for fans as a number of plot twists left viewers stunned by the show's conclusion after nine seasons. Shortly after the finale aired, devoted fans started a petition on Change.org demanding co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to re-write and re-shoot the episode, simply stating, "You know it's just wrong." More than 6,725 fans from around the world had signed the plea as WENN went to press.
