The Blacklist

 

FOX and NBC split the Monday night victory.

Game 5 of the 2013 World Series drew a 4.1 for FOX, but couldn't quite best 'The Voice.' Speaking of which, the NBC singing competition matched last week's 4.3. 'The Blacklist' continues to hold steady, rising a single tenth to a 3.1.

'How I Met Your Mother' matched last week's 3.0 for CBS. '2 Broke Girls' bumped up a healthy two tenths to a 2.7. 'Mom' did the reverse, dropping two tenths to a 2.1. Still, a renewal becomes more and more likely the longer the Chuck Lorre comedy remains at a 2.0 or above. 'Hostages' was flat with last week's 1.2. 'Hostages' seems to have garnered a consistent audience, but it just isn't big enough to ensure a second season.

'Dancing with the Stars' rose slightly, posting a 2.1 for ABC. 'Castle' recovered two of the three tenths it lost last week, earning its own 2.1. 'Castle' is far from being in cancellation danger, but this season has really an up and down one ratings wise. The number seems to swing up or down by two tenths or more every single week.

'Hart of Dixie' and 'Beauty and the Beast' matched last week's 0.4 and 0.3 respectively for the CW. If I had to guess at this point, I'd say 'Hart' will get renewed, while 'Beast' will get canceled. The reason being syndication. 'Hart' is already nearing its fourth season, and it only needs five to have a nice round re-run package of 110 episodes. Never underestimate how much selling re-run rights matters to a network. 'Beast' is only beginning its sophomore year, making it the more expendable of the two.
