David Letterman welcomed the How I Met Your Mother cast for the Late Show's Top 10 centered on the CBS sitcom's series finale.

Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders and Neil Patrick Harris presented the list Monday evening with what viewers can expect -- sort of -- from the March 31 swan song. In a minute-long preview released prior to the episode, the How I Met Your Mother stars gave a glimpse of three of the 10 finale "surprises."

Letterman's How I Met Your Mother booking comes on a night NBC rolls out the high-profile hosting debut of Jimmy Fallon on the network's storied late-night franchise, The Tonight Show. Letterman referenced Fallon's start in his monologue, although he didn't mention his competitor by name. "First thing this morning, I get a call from my mom," Letterman said. "She says 'David, did something happen to Jay?' What am I gonna do?"
