    When the host asked Radnor what he thought of fan's reactions to the show's ending in 2014, the actor said, "I think it's been overstated, people's disappointment with it."

    "If Ted and Tracy walked off into the sunset together, I think people would have called it a soft or sentimental ending, or that it was a fairy tale," he said.

    "But something about How I Met Your Mother was, it always upended your expectations, it always made you cry, it always was not what you thought it was. So I think it was in keeping with the DNA for the show."
