How I Met Your Mother met huge ratings Monday with its reveal of the titular Mother.

The Season 8 finale drew 8.4 million viewers and a 3.4 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up eight-tenths from last week and beating The Voice in their shared half-hour. It was, however, down three-tenths from last season's finale.

2 Broke Girls (8.9 million, 2.9) and Mike & Molly (8.3 million, 2.4) both rose a few tenths, but Hawaii Five-0 (7.7 million, 1.8) slipped a tenth.
