On Monday night, CBS had a terrific showing from 8-10pm. 2 Broke Girls started things off up four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance in over a month. At 8:30pm, Mike & Molly was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The season finale of Scorpion followed and was up 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since February 9. It has certainly been a successful freshman season for this show and it went out on a good note. The good news for CBS did not extend to 10pm where NCIS: Los Angeles fell six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. It must have been the return of Castle to the hour considering how well the first two hours did. There is clearly some crossover audience here.

Over on ABC, Dancing with the Stars continued its extremely steady season but was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Castle was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. The 10pm shows seemed to pummel each other with nothing above a 1.4 demo. The Voice continued its annual spring swoon. It was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Of course, despite the recent drop it remains Monday's top demo show. At 10pm, The Night Shift was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The good news is it has stayed relatively steady as its lead-in has dropped. A month ago, it got a 1.3 out of a 3.8 for The Voice. Finally on FOX, Gotham got a slight rally in the demo. It was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. The Following followed suit and did the same thing.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Scorpion (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS)
