It was a good night for the broadcast networks as every show was up from their last episode. On CBS, a repeat of The Big Bang Theory in the old Partners time slot seemed to propel the entire night upward and it got amazing numbers for a repeat. To start the night off, How I Met Your Mother was up 1.2 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best numbers since October 1. The three shows that followed the Big Bang repeat hit season highs as 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly were both up a big 2 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Hawaii Five-0 was up 1.3 million viewers and a tenth in the demo.

Over on NBC, The Voice was up 1.6 million viewers and half a demo point. I'm not sure how to explain each show being up week to week but it's a good thing for the broadcast networks. The fall finale of Revolution followed and it was up 1.5 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 25. This is ending the fall run on a good note but how will things go when it comes back on March 25? Will it survive and thrive because it will have The Voice as a lead-in again or will it go the way of shows like FlashForward and The Event? It will be very interesting to see. 

Over on ABC, the final performance night of Dancing with the Stars was up 2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for an easy Monday high. Specials of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition did very little at 9pm & 10pm showing that ABC made a good choice in cancelling this show. Finally FOX kept the good news coming as Bones was up nine tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo for a season high and The Mob Doctor was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best number since the second episode.
