8:00 The Bachelor
10:00 Castle #43 "Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind" (REPEAT)
With February Sweeps still a couple days away, there is a mix of repeats and originals on Monday night. ABC has a new The Bachelor which went up last week and is once again against repeats on CBS while Castle is a repeat.
Prediction: Bachelor – 9.5 million, 3.0/Castle – 5.8 million, 1.5
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #117 "Architect of Destruction" (REPEAT)
8:30 Rules of Engagement #52 "Handy Man" (REPEAT)
9:00 Two and a Half Men #164 "A Pudding Filled Cactus" (REPEAT)
9:30 Mike & Molly #7 "After the Lovin'" (REPEAT)
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #8 "Mana'o" (REPEAT)CBS is in repeats from top to bottom, but as always they should repeat fairly well.
Prediction: Mother – 7.3 million, 2.4/Rules – 7.2 million, 2.2/Men – 11.0 million, 2.8/Mike&Molly – 9.3 million, 2.5/Hawaii – 6.8 million, 1.7
8:00 Chuck #67 "Chuck Versus the Push Mix"
9:00 The Cape #5 "Dice"
10:00 Harry's Law #3 "Innocent Man"NBC has an all-new lineup. While Chuck should be steady, the question is – is The Cape done dropping? It seems to be on shaky ground as the genre show has continued to drop though it should be steadying soon. Finally at 10pm is a new Harry’s Law which has been solid for NBC at 10pm so far. This week it is against repeats of both Hawaii Five-0 and Castle so it wouldn’t be shocking to see it go up.
Prediction: Chuck – 6.0 million, 1.9/Cape – 5.5 million, 1.5/Harry’s – 10.6 million, 2.2
8:00 Human Target #23 "Kill Bob"
9:00 Lie to Me #48 "Killer App" (Season Finale)FOX has a special new episode of Human Target at 8pm as it will also air on Wednesday night following Idol. Both performances will be interesting to FOX executives as they decide what to do with this on-the-bubble show. At 9pm is the season finale of Lie to Me which is also on the bubble. The show perked up last week and another strong performance will help its shaky case. Prediction: Target – 6.0 million, 1.9/Lie to Me – 6.1 million, 2.0
