8:00 Dancing with the Stars
10:00 Castle #55 "The Dead Pool"
ABC is all new again on Monday night and it should be solid as usual. The competition is strong as CBS and FOX are new again this week, but ABC was fine against the NCAA Championship last week and should be fine again here.
Prediction: Dancing - 21.2 million, 4.7/Castle - 11.8 million, 2.9
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #132 "The Exploding Meatball Sub"
8:30 Mad Love #8 "Paw and Order"
9:00 Mike & Molly #20 "Opening Day"
9:30 Two and a Half Men #168 "The Crazy Bitch Gazette" (REPEAT)
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #20 "Ma Ke Kahaki"
CBS is new for most of the night but with a slightly altered lineup as Mike & Molly gets a chance at the 9pm slot. If it does well, it may get moved to this slot next fall but with a weak lead-in, don't count on it setting the world on fire though it should still do alright. This altered lineup plus tough competition on ABC and NBC might hurt Hawaii Five-0 as well.
Prediction: Mother - 8.2 million, 3.1/Mad Love - 6.2 million, 2.4/Mike&Molly - 8.9 million, 2.8/Men - 8.4 million, 2.6/Hawaii - 9.7 million, 2.7
8:00 Chuck #74 "Chuck Versus the Family Volkoff"
9:00 Law & Order: LA #9 "Zuma Canyon"
10:00 Law & Order: LA #10 "Silver LA"
NBC is all new on Monday night. Chuck should be low as usual but 9-11pm is taken up by the return of Law & Order: LA, back for the first time since December following a major retooling including "Los Angeles" shortened to "LA." Though billed as a two hour event, it is two separate episodes. This show was doing alright in the fall and its return has been well promoted so it should pull decent numbers.
Prediction: Chuck - 4.4 million, 1.6/LA 9:00 - 8.4 million, 2.3/LA 10:00 - 8.8 million, 2.3
8:00 House #150 "The Dig"
9:00 The Chicago Code #8 "Wild Onions"
FOX is all new on Monday night after two weeks of repeats. There is competition across the board but the shows should be around similar numbers.
Prediction: House - 9.8 million, 3.4/Chicago - 6.7 million, 1.8
