Harris is no stranger to the world of rom-com sitcoms, having starred as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother from 2005-2014. But unlike the CBS series, the 49-year-old joked that Uncoupled makes for a much easier binge-watch “because there’s no commercials.”
“It’s 30 minutes each episode,” he continued. “It’s not like The Crown where it’s a commitment. You get to come in Ted Lasso-style, watch the show, feel a little, laugh a lot, maybe shed a tear, then carry on with your life.”
Walking the premiere red carpet with his husband David Burtka, Harris also joked that “premieres are terrible date nights,” telling Daily Pop, “Look at how weird this is. How is this supposed to be intimate? This is like asking people if they’re watching The Bachelor whether it’s authentic.”

Uncoupled premieres July 29 on Netflix.
