It seems that finally finding out how the series' protagonist Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) met 'The Mother' was what television viewers wanted to find out as the last show achieved record setting ratings.

According to final numbers from Nielsen, around 13.1 million fans tuned in to CBS to see the penultimate episode, beating the previous record of 12.3 million fans who watched 'The Pineapple Incident' episode which aired in November 2005 during 'HIMYM's first season.
