ABC had a good Monday night. At 8pm, Dancing with the Stars was up a nice 2.3 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. Part of may have been due to less competition but this is still a nice rise and it will probably continue to grow as the finale nears. At 9:30pm, a special airing of struggling freshman comedy Better With You performed above expectations and above last week's airing in this slot by the more established Cougar Town. If this series high leads to any additional viewers and Wednesday's airing sees a rise, it may have a chance after all, but for now it remains to be seen. A Castle rerun at 10pm was above recent repeat airings of the drama.

CBS was in repeats except for Mad Love which was down just a tenth in viewers and even in the demo despite being behind a repeat. This proves that the show has its own audience even though that audience is small. It may still have an off chance of renewal. A special airing of The Big Bang Theory aired at 9pm and was above last week's Two and a Half Men repeat numbers. Will CBS move Big Bang back to Mondays next fall? A Hawaii Five-0 repeat beat a repeat of Castle and a new Law & Order: LA at 10pm.


NBC was new from 9-11pm after a low-rated repeat of Chuck. At 9pm, The Event was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total is its best since its return on March 7 but that doesn't mean it stands a chance. At 10pm, Law & Order: LA was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's low. While the rise is good, it probably should have gone up more considering both CBS and ABC were in repeats. Finally, FOX was in repeats and low as expected.
