In a fairly uncommon turn of events, FOX won Monday both in the key demos and total viewers. To be fair, this is almost certainly due to CBS effectively taking the night off.
Speaking of FOX, Bones fell a single tenth, while the just renewed drama The Following matched last week's numbers. ABC's The Bachelor fell 7%. CBS' lone new offering, Rules of Engagement, hit a second straight season low. The comedy fell nearly 20% to a 2.2. After seven seasons, the little sitcom that could may finally be reaching its breaking point.
NBC's The Biggest Loser dropped 5%. Deception fell back to its series low of 1.1., and its cancellation is a mere formality at this juncture. The Carrie Diaries rose 25% for the CW. The recently canceled 90210 was flat with last week's 0.3.
