THE RUNDOWN: Monday, April 18

ABC
8:00 Dancing with the Stars
9:30 Cougar Town #39 "Walls"
10:00 20/20 - William and Catherine: A Modern Fairytale 
ABC is all new on Monday night but with a somewhat different lineup. Dancing with the Stars is just an hour and a half tonight and it is followed by Cougar Town which has been on hiatus since early February. It might see season highs before returning to its regular Wednesday slot. At 10pm is a 20/20 special in place of Castle on the Royal Wedding which will give us an early indication of what kind of ratings wedding-related broadcasts will get.
Prediction: Dancing – 19.9 million, 4.3/Cougar – 10.2 million, 3.2/2020 – 8.8 million, 2.6

CBS
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #133 "Hopeless"
8:30 Mad Love #9 "Pub Quiz"
9:00 Two and a Half Men #172 "Dead from the Waist Down" (REPEAT)
9:30 Mike & Molly #21 "Samuel Gets Fired"
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #21 "Ho'opa'i"
CBS is all new (except of course for Two and a Half Men) on Monday night. They were very low after a couple of weeks of repeats last week. Now that they have been back, it wouldn’t be surprising to see small gains across the board and a better gain for Mike & Molly which is back in its comfortable 9:30 slot and not opposite Dancing with the Stars.
Prediction: Mother – 7.4 million, 2.9/Mad Love – 5.7 million, 1.9/Men – 8.6 million, 2.5/Mike&Molly – 9.6 million, 3.0/Hawaii – 10.4 million, 2.8

NBC
8:00 Chuck #75 "Chuck Versus the Wedding Planner"
9:00 The Event #17 "Cut Off the Head"
10:00 Law & Order: LA #11 "Benedict Canyon"
NBC is all new with its low rated Monday lineup. Chuck and The Event should be at their usual low numbers. Law & Order: LA returned weakly last week but did do stronger in the 10pm hour so it could be up from last week’s two hour numbers.
Prediction: Chuck – 4.1 million, 1.4/Event – 4.0 million, 1.2/LA – 7.0 million, 1.7

FOX
8:00 House #151 "Last Temptation"
9:00 The Chicago Code #9 "St. Valentine's Day Massacre"
FOX is all new with its regular lineup. Both shows took a hit last week but it’s unlikely they’ll rebound much with the competition and daylight savings to deal with.
Prediction: House – 9.0 million, 3.3/Chicago – 5.8 million, 1.8
