Check back later today for a review of Napoleon Dynamite and hopefully Alcatraz and Betty White's Off Their Rockers!
8:00 The Bachelor
10:00 Castle #70 "Dial M for Mayor"
ABC is all new but the competition is fierce so I wouldn't be surprised to see both shows take a dip in the ratings from last week resulting in more lows for The Bachelor.
Prediction: Bachelor - 6.9 million, 2.1/Castle - 9.3 million, 2.2
8:00 How I Met Your Mother #150 "46 Minutes"
8:30 2 Broke Girls #14 "And the Upstairs Neighbor"
9:00 Two and a Half Men #191 "A Possum on Chemo"
9:30 Mike & Molly #37 "Victoria Can't Drive"
10:00 Hawaii Five-0 #38 "Pu'olo"
CBS is all new with its regular lineup. The competition is strong but it did get promos during football including a well-done Two and a Half Men promo. I'd expect numbers to be similar to where they were two weeks ago.
Prediction: Mother - 9.9 million, 3.9/Girls - 11.6 million, 4.3/Men - 14.9 million, 4.7/Mike&Molly - 12.3 million, 3.9/Hawaii - 12.1 million, 3.0
8:00 Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to Hollywood's Golden Girl (SPECIAL)
9:30 Betty White's Off Their Rockers (SERIES PREMIERE)
10:00 Rock Center with Brian Williams
NBC is devoting their 8-10pm Monday night to Betty White with a salute for her 90th birthday followed by a sneak preview of her new prank show Betty White's Off Their Rockers which doesn't have a set timeslot for later in the spring. I would expect decent viewer totals but it will probably skew old.
Prediction: Birthday Tribute - 8.2 million, 1.8/Rockers - 7.1 million, 1.7/Rock Center - 4.4 million, 1.0
8:00 Alcatraz #1/2 "Pilot/Ernest Cobb" (SERIES PREMIERE)
FOX is spending its Monday night kicking off its newest drama - the mysterious Alcatraz. It got a lot of promotion during football this weekend so I would expect some interest to generate a decent premiere though it also wouldn't be surprising to see it drop over the two hours. I'm not sure about this show's long term prospects.
Prediction: Alcatraz - 7.6 million, 2.4
