THE RUNDOWN: Monday, April 25

ABC
8:00 Dancing with the Stars
9:30 Better With You #19 "Better With Dancing"
10:00 Castle #47 "Knockdown" (REPEAT) 
ABC is new for the first two hours on Monday. Dancing with the Stars could be up a hair as it gets nearer to the finale and doesn’t have to compete with much on CBS and FOX. A special airing of Better With You follows at 9:30. Considering Cougar Town didn’t do much in this slot last week, the likely-to-be-cancelled Better will probably not do better.
Prediction: Dancing – 20.5 million, 4.2/Better – 6.8 million, 1.9/Castle – 5.5 million, 1.4

CBS
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #123 "The Mermaid Theory" (REPEAT)
8:30 Mad Love #10 "The Young and the Reckless"
9:00 The Big Bang Theory #76 "The Love Car Displacement" (REPEAT)
9:30 Mike & Molly #11 "Carl Gets a Girl" (REPEAT)
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #13 "Ke Kinohi" (REPEAT)
CBS is all in repeats except for Mad Love, which will probably be down from last week when it followed an original. Airing in place of a Two and a Half Men repeat is a repeat of The Big Bang Theory. Is CBS testing the waters for a possible move back to Monday for Big Bang? It’s hard to tell from this move.
Prediction: Mother – 5.0 million, 1.7/Mad – 5.1 million, 1.8/Big Bang – 7.4 million, 2.1/Mike&Molly – 7.0 million, 2.0/Hawaii – 6.1 million, 1.6

NBC
8:00 Chuck #49 "Chuck Versus the Honeymooners" (REPEAT)
9:00 The Event #18 "Strain"
10:00 Law & Order: LA #12 "Benedict Canyon"
NBC is new from 9-11pm with its group of low-rated dramas. The Event probably won’t be any stronger but Law & Order: LA might see a small rise with both Hawaii Five-0 and Castle in repeats. A bit of a rebound will help this show’s slim chances.
Prediction: Chuck – 2.2 million, 0.5/Event – 3.5 million, 1.1/LA – 5.8 million, 1.3

FOX
8:00 House #139 "A Pox on Our House" (REPEAT)
9:00 The Chicago Code #4 "Cabrini-Green" (REPEAT)
FOX is entirely in repeats and should be low as it usually is with repeats.
Prediction: House – 4.4 million, 1.3/Chicago – 3.8 million, 1.1
