On Monday night, CBS had its revamped lineup for the first time and the results were mostly positive. At 8pm, How I Met Your Mother was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. 2 Broke Girls moved back to its old slot of 8:30pm and it was up seven tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. More importantly, it was a huge upgrade in the timeslot over the 1.8 demo the cancelled We Are Men got last week. At 9pm, a repeat of The Big Bang Theory was serviceable but not as strong as it sometimes is. At 9:30pm, Mom was up half a million viewers but down a tenth in the demo. Its lead-in was down a tenth too but this show just seems to skew older which means it might be a good companion for Mike & Molly when that show arrives at 9pm on November 4. At 10pm, Hostages was dead even with last week. The only question now is whether CBS will ride out this show for its full 15 episode order.

Over on FOX, Bones was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo for its last Monday airing. It will head to Fridays in November after baseball. At 9pm, Sleepy Hollow was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It will now take two weeks off for baseball and return on November 4 airing after the series premiere of new sci-fi drama Almost Human. The million dollar question now is whether baseball will dull the momentum of Hollow, which has been a huge early season success for FOX. Baseball has been a problem for other fast FOX starters so time will tell. It will have to recover from a couple weeks off and having a new lead-in so we'll see what it's made of.

On NBC, The Voice was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo as it didn't perk up for the battle rounds like it has before. At 10pm, The Blacklist was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It is leveling out right now at a very high level. Its worth noting though that Revolution was at a 3.3 demo a year ago (out of a slightly stronger The Voice). Finally on ABC both shows were up which was a positive. Dancing with the Stars was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Castle was up six tenths in viewers and a good three tenths in the demo. It beat The Blacklist in total viewers for the first time but was still well behind in the demo.
