Monday night had the final fall premiere with NBC's State of Affairs. First up for them, The Voice was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. As we all knew going in, The Voice was not going to be as strong a lead-in in November as it would have been in September but NBC chose to give The Blacklist a two month boost back in the Monday 10pm slot. State of Affairs premiered at 10pm to modest numbers that were below anything The Blacklist has ever done here when it's had a lead-in from The Voice. I know the raw numbers aren't horrible but I think this is pretty disappointing considering how much promotion it got. It's likely to go down from here and in January it will have Celebrity Apprentice as a lead-in instead of The Voice. If things go downhill quickly, I think NBC may think about launching a different new drama when The Voice returns in the spring. Time will tell, but I don't think there's a lot of great news here for Affairs.

Over on ABC, Dancing with the Stars had a strong night as it was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total is a season high and the demo is the best since the premiere before the season started. This bodes well for next week's finale potential. At 10pm, Castle was down a tenth in viewers but up two tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 13. It was a good night for ABC. On FOX, Gotham was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. It has stabilized at these numbers in recent weeks, which is not bad - especially for FOX. At 9pm, Sleepy Hollow was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo.

Finally on CBS, 2 Broke Girls started things off up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It's encouraging that it crept back over a 2.0 and things could go better when it's paired with Mike & Molly, which will take the 8:30pm slot starting December 8. It's coming there to replace the cancelled The Millers. That show was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo from last week. After getting cancelled last week, this is the last scheduled episode. It seems like CBS might be planning to just burn it off on Saturdays down the road. At 9pm, Scorpion was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. This show stands to benefit even more from the Mike & Molly move, which is why CBS made the decision so soon, I think. At 10pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Both Castle and NCIS: Los Angeles directly benefited from less NBC competition in the hour.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Dancing with the Stars (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Millers (CBS)
