Some positive news for BRITNEY SPEARS for a change, as curiosity seekers wondering how she would do on TV, drove up viewership for CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" MONDAY night, reports THE NY DAILY NEWS. An estimated 10.62 million viewers tuned in to see SPEARS play a love-struck receptionist.
That's up more than one million viewers from the week before, and some 2.4 million from what the sitcom averaged before the season was upended by a writers strike. MONDAY's highly hyped telecast also generated the largest audience between the ages of 18 and 49 in the show's three-year history.
Likewise, the estimated audience is expected to grow once final DVR figures are worked in over the coming weeks.
