CBS finally got knocked off its Monday night perch, as ABC won both the demos and total viewers.
The Bachelor fell a single tenth for ABC, while Castle held steady with last week. CBS' line-up did uncharacteristically poor, with HIMYM the only bright spot, in that it matched last week. Rules Of Engagement and Mike & Molly both fell to season lows. 2 Broke Girls posted a series low. This week will probably be proven a fluke, but still, it's very rare to see the mighty CBS Monday's collapse.
FOX's Bones rose a tenth. The Following dropped two tenths, but remains above cancellation danger. NBC's The Biggest Loser matched last week. The certain to be canceled Deception also stayed flat with last week's 1.2. The CW saw The Carrie Diaries and 90210 both rise one tenth, but 90210 is still at Defcon 1. An 0.3. is not remotely enough to get renewed, even on the fifth place network. Especially with the series only drawing half a million total viewers.
