It was a good Monday night as most shows were up week-to-week. The best news came for Dancing with the Stars on ABC. It was up a strong 1.8 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best numbers since the spring premiere. It is significantly up year to year which is impressive for a reality franchise that seemed on a continuous downward spiral. It looks like airing one day a week may be a "less is more" situation for ABC and it's finding an audience again. The big rise also helped Castle, which was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best showing since February 3. On NBC, The Voice was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo while The Blacklist was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

FOX had the season finale of The Following. It was up just four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo and was down 1.2 demo points from last year's season finale. The wheels really came off of this show this year and I don't think it's going to be any better next year for FOX. Finally on CBS, 2 Broke Girls continues to do pretty admirably in its new 8pm slot. It was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 8:30pm, Friends with Better Lives was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo as well. It has held up pretty well in its first four weeks, but will it be enough to get a renewal? I'm not so sure. At 9pm, Mike & Molly with guest star Susan Sarandon was up three tenths in viewers and the demo for its best performance since March 3.
