The end is near! CBS’ How I Met Your Mother rose in the ratings Monday night for its penultimate episode. HIMYM jumped 17 percent as the long-running comedy heads into next week’s hour-long series finale. Overall, HIMYM was second only to NBC’s The Voice to top the night. Check out CBS’ promo for the HIMYM finale below the ratings chart.

The rest of CBS’ lineup was within 10 percent or so of last week. ABC’s Dancing With the Stars was down 15 percent from last week’s modest premiere. NBC’s Blacklist was up 7 percent despite its Voice lead-in dropping 12 percent. Fox’s dramas were steady. The CW’s Star Crossed and The Tomorrow People did not help their renewal odds.
