NBC and ABC once again split the Monday night victory.
'The Voice' recovered somewhat after last week's huge tumble, rising two tenths to a 3.8. Ever reliable freshman drama 'The Blacklist' rose a single tenth to a 3.0. 'Dancing with the Stars' fell three tenths to an all-time Monday demo low of 1.7. 'Castle' dipped by two tenths, posting a 2.0. 'Bones' also drew a 2.0, matching last week. 'Sleepy Hollow' remains consistent, rising a tenth to a 2.6.
'How I Met Your Mother' lost almost all of its gains from last Monday, dropping three tenths to a 3.1. On the bright side, lead-out '2 Broke Girls' rose slightly, earning a 2.7. 'Mike & Molly's return honeymoon period is already over, falling down three tenths to a 2.3 in week two of its season. 'Mom' stayed within its usual range, garnering a 1.9. Despite the slight dip taken by the freshman sitcom, I'm confident 'Mom' will live to see a second season. 'Hostages' matched last week's 1.1.
For the upteenth straight week, 'Hart of Dixie' and 'Beauty and the Beast' pulled down a 0.4 and a 0.3 respectively. I can't remember the last time two shows on the same night stayed at the exact same rating for this long of a period. Still, my prediction hasn't changed. Look for more 'Hart' next fall, and be prepared to say goodbye to the 'Beast' in the spring.
