On Monday night, FOX had the season finale of Gotham and it had a small bump after a rough couple weeks. It was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since March 2. It wasn't a great spike but it least it ended its season on the upswing. FOX needs to be better about scheduling this show next season. At 9pm, The Following was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Over on NBC, The Voice was down six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low for a performance night. Still, a 2.3 was the tops of the night in the demo by four tenths. At 10pm, The Night Shift was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This show has been remarkably steady even as The Voice has dropped all spring, but that's probably not going to be enough.

It was a rough night for the CBS comedies. Both hit series lows in viewers which is interesting since their previous series lows in total viewers were this same week last year. At 8pm, 2 Broke Girls was down two tenths in viewers but actually up a tenth in the demo. Mike & Molly was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The demo was also a series low for Mike & Molly. These shows have taken a dive since Scorpion finished its season. A David Letterman special aired from 9:30-11pm and did decent in total viewers but skewed old as expected. It will be interesting to see what his numbers are for his final late night show on May 20. Finally on ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Castle was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Gotham (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Mike & Molly (CBS)
