NBC once again won Monday night in all measures.
'The Voice' continues to hold steady, dropping a single tenth to a 4.5. 'The Blacklist' also stayed strong, dipping one tenth to a 3.0. Conversely, 'How I Met Your Mother' rose one tenth to a 3.1 for CBS. The network's decision to move '2 Broke Girls' back to 8:30 was a good one, with the comedy rising three tenths from last week's series low. The timeslot shuffle really didn't help 'Mom' much, which dropped slightly to a 2.0. As long as 'Mom' stays at a 2.0 or above, it'll probably eek out a renewal. 'Hostages' matched last week's 1.2, and will probably get canceled after its 15 produced episodes make air. Luckily for fans, CBS has nothing else to fill the Mondays at 10pm slot right now.
The audience for 'Bones' remained steady going down a single tenth to a 2.0. 'Sleepy Hollow' echoed that movement, dipping one tenth to a 2.7. 'Dancing with the Stars' rose a tenth to a 2.1 for ABC. 'Castle' had its first positive ratings news of the season so far, shooting up three tenths to a 2.2. In a mildly positive development for The CW, 'Hart of Dixie' and 'Beauty and the Beast' both matched their season premiere numbers. The problem being that a 0.4 and a 0.3 respectively are not ratings to be proud of, even for the fifth place network.
