THE RUNDOWN: Monday, September 26

We are into the second week of the season! Check below for reviews of Person of Interest, Prime Suspect, A Gifted Man, and Pan Am (I finally caught up!) then check back soon for a review of Terra Nova (though it may take me a day or two to get to it)

ABC
8:00 Dancing with the Stars
10:00 Castle #60 "Heroes & Villains"
ABC saw a dip for Dancing with the Stars vs recent premiere but was any of that due to Two and a Half Men? We'll find out soon but I don't think it was. My guess is that it goes down ever so slightly this week. Castle should be on par with last week and will probably win both the demo and viewer count this week.
Prediction: Dancing - 18.5 million, 3.9/Castle - 12.9 million, 3.1

CBS
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #139 "Ducky Tie"
8:30 2 Broke Girls #2 "And the Breakup Scene"
9:00 Two and a Half Men #179 "People Who Love Peepholes"
9:30 Mike & Molly #25 "Gone Fishin'" (Season Premiere)
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #26 "Ua Lawe Wale"
CBS hit the jackpot last week with the Two and a Half Men season premiere but the drop this week will likely be steep. Still even a huge drop could put it in the 16-18 million viewer range and a 6-7 demo, which is still great numbers. Earlier in the night, How I Met Your Mother will likely be down from its big season premiere while 2 Broke Girls will be down big from its 9:30pm series premiere though it could still get over a 4 in the demo which would be huge. The season premiere of Mike & Molly follows the Men premiere and with the big lead-in and the newest Emmy winner, it could see a series high. Hawaii will likely be about even in viewers but down in the demo from last week.
Prediction: Mother - 9.9 million, 4.1/Girls - 12.1 million, 4.5/Men - 17.7 million, 6.8/Mike&Molly - 13.0 million, 5.2/Hawaii - 11.8 million, 3.0

NBC
8:00 The Sing Off
10:00 The Playboy Club #2 "The Scarlett Bunny"
NBC had a terrible premiere week from start to finish and now it has to face inevitable drops from some of its new shows. That starts with The Playboy Club which will likely drop from its very weak premiere. How long will it last? Earlier in the night, The Sing Off might actually rise a bit with CBS likely be down and some people having already sampled Dancing with the Stars though FOX's competition is tougher.
Prediction: Sing Off - 5.8 million, 2.1, Playboy - 4.4 million, 1.3

FOX
8:00 Terra Nova #1/2 "Genesis" (SERIES PREMIERE)
FOX decided to wait until the second week of the season to launch its heavily hyped sci-fi spectacular Terra Nova. Expect a good sampling this week but it will be interesting to see if this can be a mass appeal show like FOX hopes it can.
Prediction: Terra Nova - 10.5 million, 3.2
