(Newser) – Looks like Meg Ryan's TV-based comeback is in full swing: She's set to narrate How I Met Your Dad, the Greta Gerwig-starring How I Met Your Mother spin-off that could be coming to CBS (if the network orders the pilot to series). Ryan would essentially have the same role narrator Bob Saget did on Mother, narrating the story of her younger self, as played by Gerwig, the Los Angeles Times reports. Ryan will also be the star of a new, as-yet-untitled sitcom on NBC about a single mom.
