On Monday night, NBC was easily tops again. The Voice was up half a million viewers and down a tenth in the demo. The gulf is just getting wider between this show and its Monday competition. At 10pm, The Blacklist was down two tenths in viewers and the demo as it is holding up pretty well and definitely earned its full season. Over on ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. It looks like having the elimination on the same night isn't making any difference for this show. At 10pm, Castle was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for a season low. On FOX, Bones was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo while Sleepy Hollow was even in viewers and down two tenths in the demo. Sleepy Hollow seems to be a show like The Following which will settle in the mid 2s.

CBS ticked down again though the bleeding seems to be slowing for the comedies. At 8pm, How I Met Your Mother was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Week two of We Are Men was down 1.2 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. It's not the worst drop ever for a second week of a new show but it's already below a 2 demo so that's a problem. At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show just isn't an anchor. At 9:30pm, Mom was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Its retention out of Girls is good and I feel like it would do better if it was airing at 8:30pm. While the comedies have some problems, they are not nearly as big a problem as 10pm where Hostages was down eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. There's no question now, this show is a huge flop. The only question is whether it will air all 15 episodes in this slot, I'm starting to think it won't.
