Sorry for the delay, I accidentally scheduled it to post tomorrow at 6am!
Check below this post for the Freshman Scorecard for April!
8:00 Dancing with the Stars
10:00 Castle #78 "The Limey"
ABC is all new with its regular lineup but it wouldn't surprise me to see both shows down significantly against the NCAA title game, at least in total viewers.
Prediction: Dancing - 16.1 million, 3.0/Castle - 10.2 million, 2.1
8:00 2 Broke Girls #14 "And the Upstairs Neighbor" (REPEAT)
8:30 Two and a Half Men #191 "A Possum on Chemo" (REPEAT)
9:00 NCAA Mens Basketball Championship
Last year, the NCAA title game pulled 20.1 million viewers and a 7.1 demo. I could see this year being better with a stronger matchup.
8:00 The Voice
10:00 Smash #9 "Hell on Earth"
Much like ABC, NBC could take a hit from basketball even with The Voice airing its first live shows. I still think it will do well but it will probably fall again. Smash probably doesn't have a ton of crossover audience with basketball but could still be down too.
Prediction: Voice - 11.2 million, 4.2/Smash - 5.5 million, 2.0
8:00 Bones #136 "The Prisoner in the Pipe"
9:00 House #170 "Blowing the Whistle"
Two FOX dramas are new on Monday. Bones is back after a hiatus on a new night and House begins its final episodes. I still think the numbers won't be all that impressive as the competition is quite fierce.
Prediction: Bones - 5.7 million, 2.1/House - 5.9 million, 2.1
