15. The Season Finale
Fans piled by their TV sets when the series finale aired on March 31, 2014, waiting to find out what happens to their favourite How I Met Your Mother characters. However, while this episode got the most views, it also had the lowest ratings. Apparently no one wanted Ted’s wife to be killed (the one they had been waiting nine years for) so that Ted (Josh Radnor) could end up with Robin (Cobie Smulders)…seriously????!!!Ron P.
