Despite "falling back" for Daylight Savings, Monday night's numbers were underwhelming particularly on CBS where three shows saw season lows. Airing new episodes for the first time since October 5, the lineup struggled. How I Met Your Mother was down seven tenths in viewers and a big four tenths in the demo. The best news actually came from struggling newbie Partners which was down four tenths in viewers but even in the demo. Every time it looks down and out, it gives a slight promising sign. At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season low. Mike & Molly also hit a season low as it was down the same amount as Girls. At 10pm, Hawaii Five-0 was down 1.2 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. The demo is not a season low, however. Over on ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Castle was down eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo, tying a season low and landing in third in the demo again. 

Over on NBC, The Voice remained the star of the night though it was down half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo. Next week is when the final leg of the competition starts with the Top 12. Will it swoon down the stretch as it has before or stay powerful? At 10pm, Revolution was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, hitting a series low and dropping below a 3 demo for the first time. It's not horrible but it can't keep dropping a tenth or two every week or NBC's biggest new hit will turn into a bust. FOX's lineup was back for the first time since October 8. At 8pm, Bones was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Against all odds, The Mob Doctor remained on the air and it was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Apparently FOX will air the 13 episodes before The Following takes this slot in January.
