CBS continued to absolutely dominate on Monday night after a week of repeats. At 8pm, How I Met Your Mother was up 1.5 million viewers and half a demo point for its best total viewer numbers in this timeslot all season. This show is just on fire this season after slowing last spring. At 8:30pm, 2 Broke Girls was up 1.5 million viewers and even in the demo, also hitting its best total viewer numbers in its timeslot (only beaten by the mammoth premiere at 9:30pm in September). At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo despite the improved lead-in. Mike & Molly was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally at 10pm, Hawaii Five-0 was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It isn't even a competition between Castle and Hawaii this season.

Over on ABC, a classic Christmas special A Charlie Brown Christmas and the new Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice performed decently. The news was not good at 9pm where You Deserve It tumbled another eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. Is it even worth keeping on another couple weeks? Repeats couldn't do much worse. At 10pm, Castle was affected by the terrible lead-in as it was down a big 2.8 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for season lows. This show is apparently very lead-in dependent still, which it really shouldn't be. A Sing Off holiday special did nothing for NBC while Rock Center was down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, hitting a series low in total viewers. The American Country Awards on FOX performed better than last year.
