How I Met Your Mother by Monty Brinton/CBS How I Met Your Mother by Monty Brinton/CBS

It's a Mother of a dogfight between networks to snag syndication rights to How I Met Your Mother, Variety reports.

With offers coming in from Tribune, Fox, CBS and a handful of other cablers and distributors, the Twentieth TV-produced sitcom could fetch up to $350 million for the first go-around in 2010.

The winning bidder could be announced as early as Wednesday.

Demand for HIMYM has been high due to its performance consistency - though not a ratings killer, the show averages more than 9 million viewers - and the fact that sitcom rerun opportunities are so few and far in between.

Season 4 of How I Met Your Mother premieres Sept. 22 at 8:30 pm/ET on CBS. - Joyce Eng
