FANS ARE INVITED TO PICK THIER FAVORITE “HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER” GUEST STAR
After the success of WGN America’s “Best of Barney” fan’s choice marathon in June, WGN America now kicks off a “Best Guest Stars” fan’s choice event with a Facebook poll for fans to select the top 6 “Guest Stars” episodes. The highest ranking episodes will air on Sunday, July 24th beginning at 7pm E/ 4pm W.
WGN America is inviting fans to tweet to @MeetatMacLarens or post on our Facebook “YourMother” page and vote for their favorite “HIMYM” guest star. The best tweets and posts will be featured during “HIMYM” on WGN America all week long starting Tuesday, July 19th leading up to the marathon on July 24th.
WGN America’s social media campaign for How I Met Your Mother using Facebook and Twitter (MeetatMacLarens) which began this spring has been a great success. WGN America’s How I Met Your Mother Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/MeetatMacLarens has amassed over 230,000 followers.
Meet at MacLarens is filled with Facebook fan-friendly features including: The Barney Bro Burn: an exhaustive database of Barney’s best one liners that users can post on their friend’s pages; The Robin Scherbatsky Awards: users can send to a friend who deserves public shame for a blatant offense in Facebook journalism; HIMYM Guide to New York: WGN America’s geographic guide to HIMYM locations in NY and a Web Guide with a list of our favorite HIMYM bloggers.
As part of WGN America’s social media strategy, the network has partnered with Story Worldwide, a global content marketing agency, to help create and curate the ideal fan experience and drive tune-in to WGN America on air.
HIMYM currently airs on WGN America Tuesday through Friday (9pm E /6pm W,) Saturday (11:30pm E /8:30pm W) and Sunday (7pm E /4pm W.)
