NBC once again won Monday night in all measures.
'The Voice' continues to hold strong, dropping only a single tenth to a 4.6. 'The Blacklist' did slightly less well, dipping two tenths to a 3.1. Both shows still easily won their timeslots though, for the third week straight. 'HIMYM's final season is holding up nicely, dropping a single tenth to a 3.0. New comedy 'We Are Men' fell to a 1.8, making it a lock for cancellation. CBS just doesn't renew shows that draw a 1.8 demo, not on any night other than Friday at least. '2 Broke Girls' hit a new series low of 2.2, one week after matching its previous series low. 'Mom' dipped to a 2.1. If it falls below a 2.0, 'Mom' gets the ax. 'Hostages' fell yet again, now sitting at a 1.2. These 'Hostages' will soon be released.
'Bones' dropped a single tenth to a 2.1. 'Sleepy Hollow' fell two, posting a 2.8. 'Dancing with the Stars' matched last week's 2.0 for ABC. 'Castle' posted a rather worrying 1.9, down three tenths from last week. Maybe fans aren't digging the "Beckett leaves town" storyline as much as producers had hoped they would. The CW had a bad night, with the season premiere of 'Hart of Dixie' dropping down by three tenths from last year. There is certainly time to recover, but that big of a drop for the premiere is never a good sign for a show. Although 'Hart' looked absolutely golden compared to lead-out 'Beauty and the Beast,' which jumped off a cliff. Last year's series premiere of 'B&TB' pulled down a terrific (for The CW) 1.1. demo. This year's sophomore debut drew a 0.3, an eight tenths drop. Yikes.
