/// How I Met Your Mother Turbocharges CBS’ Lineup
Episode No. 200 of How I Met Your Mother powered CBS’ entire Monday night lineup, as the nine-seasons-in-the-making origin story helped deliver the comedy’s highest ratings in a year. According to Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, “How Your Mother Met Me” averaged 10.8 million viewers and a season-high 3.8 in the adults 18-49 demo. The overall deliveries were the HIMYM’s most robust since the Feb. 4, 2013 episode averaged 10.3 million viewers and a 4.0 rating. Last night’s episode revealed the Mother’s catastrophic backstory and featured Cristin Milioti’s ukulele-accompanied version of “La Vie en Rose.” HIMYM will be shuttered for good on March 31, when CBS airs a special two-part series finale.
