How I Met Your Mother Finale Reaches A Series High In The Ratings - But Was The Episode Truly, Wait For It, Legendary?

When it came to making sure their finale was a hit, How I Met Your Mother's delivery can be summed up in two words: challenge accepted!

The finale, which was for sure a tear-jerker, definitely jerked a lot of tears because it was the most watched episode in the series 9 years. Legen…wait for it…dary!

The last installment in the story earned CBS 12.9 million viewers, and a rating of a 5.3 in the key 18-49 demographic!

Meanwhile, show creator Craig Thomas had this to tweet regarding the show's rating success, which although disappointed some fans for some reasons we won't spoil, was a fitting end to the series:

We're so glad Ted Mosby's kids can finally make up for all those lost years of their lives that were spent listening to his long, rambling tale! But oh, was it a good one!

We hope McClaren's got busy after the show aired and maybe ended in a historic bar fight (that Barney and Ted would exaggerate)!

    Horrible ending to this show! What a letdown!!!! Robin and Barney divorcing, Barney having a baby out of wedlock with a stranger, The "mother" dying young, Ted's kids telling him to be with Robin, oh it was terrible! What were they thinking??? The episode barely focused on Ted and the mother, which is what everyone was waiting for. They had about 2 minutes of when they finally met. They had it all set up right, it could have been great, they found a great girl to play the mother, then they blew it.

    Oh what morons people are! Yes it's called How I met Your Mother but wouldn't it be a terribly boring finale just to say 'and now they live happily ever after'? Really?? The kids said that the reason Ted told them all this was because he wanted to be with Robin, not actually to tell them how he met their mother. No one should have truly been waiting for him to meet the mother considering the audience didn't even really know her… It was a good finale and didn't dwell on the bad things that happen during it and concentrated on the good parts. It was a good send off, I swear people just like to whine and moan for the sake of it..
