Dancing With the Stars, which closes the season tonight, opened the evening with a considerable (and, of course, dominant) 18.84 million viewers and a 4.3 rating/12 share among adults 18-49 from 8-9 p.m. Second was the season-finale of Fox’s underrated Bones at 10.15 million viewers and a 3.3/10 in the demo., followed by the season-finales of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (Viewers: #3, 7.36 million; A18-49: #3, 2.7/ 8) and How I Met Your Mother (Viewers: #3, 7.92 million; A18-49: #3, 3.2/ 9), the first hour of a 90-minute edition of NBC’s American Gladiators (Viewers: #4, 3.71 million; A18-49: #4, 1.5/ 4), and the Gossip Girl season-ender on the CW (Viewers: #5, 2.97 million; A18-49: #5, 1.4/ 4).

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you might want to consider attending this unofficial finale party at Bamboo.
Not to be outdone by the TV Squad interview with Carter Bays, Zap2It and Craig Thomas got together for a talk. Once again, Thomas gives you a lot of information and a lot to think about without giving any specifics away – it’s a great read, especially this:
Tell me, do you have the whole mother thing mapped out at this point, or are you still debating in the writers room?
We know what we’d like to do. We’ve had a plan since the pilot and we actually shot a little piece of it at the beginning of season two, using the kids, because we knew if we waited until the finale of the series, the kids would have aged like six years. So yeah, part of our plan for how we want to end it all has already been done.
Full interview here! He also answers the Barney/Robin question – will the show touch on that pairing again, or are they done with it?

Yes, Chalke explained, she was indeed wearing part of her costume from Scrubs on How I Met Your Mother, as she went from playing Dr. Elliot Reed to Dr. Stella. Chalke explained, “They covered up the Dr. Reed patch with a pocket protector, so I actually did have my blankie from the past eight years with me.”
