The overall winner in total viewers for the night was ABC's Dancing With the Stars, but CBS' How I Met Your Mother dominated in the category of adults 18-49 with a 3.4 rating, 11 share and 9.1 million viewers overall.
The sitcom was so successful Monday, all of CBS' lineup that night -- 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Mom and Intelligence -- saw a bump in ratings.
The Voice, which airs at the same time as How I Met Your Mother, was down 10 percent from last week.
How I Met Your Mother ends its nine-season run Monday with a special, hourlong episode, Variety reported.
