Monday night was pretty disastrous for CBS. Baltimore was preempted for its riot coverage but that's not the reason this went south for CBS. It was just a really weak night without their 9pm anchor. At 8pm, 2 Broke Girls crashed nine tenths in viewers and half a demo point, tying a series low from November. At 8:30pm, Mike & Molly was down nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo tying a series low set both in December and last May. These comedies overachieved last night and definitely underachieved this week. At 9pm, Stalker came over for a short Monday run after being off the air from February. The result was a demo that was slightly up from its last Wednesday airing but well below what Scorpion was getting here. Any glimmer of hope this show might have had is gone now. At 10pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down a million viewers and even in the demo, tying last week's series low.

Over on ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Castle was even in viewers but down a tenth in the demo to tie its series low from January. I don't see how ABC can justify keeping this show in the same slot next year. On NBC, The Voice was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, The Night Shift was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally on FOX, Gotham was up two tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo. Not exactly the momentum it could have used ahead of next week's season finale. At 9pm, The Following was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Voice (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Stalker (CBS)
