On Monday night, NBC had its first of two weeks of comedy previews following The Voice. First up, The Voice recovered from last week's Dancing with the Stars showdown as it was up 2.3 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total is a season high. It led into an OK sampling for Superstore. The 10pm episode lost a lot of its lead-in but posted a solid 2.0 demo while the 10:30pm episode dropped from there, but it could have been worse. 10pm is a tough time for comedies to air so this was OK. We'll see what it can do when it airs at 8pm in January. I think this was probably the best thing NBC could do to get it sampling. On FOX, the fall finale of Gotham got a little bump as it was half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. The unofficial series finale of Minority Report was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total was actually the best since the second episode but it was far too little, far too late.

ABC was full of holiday cheer with a Charlie Brown special event leading into the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, which posted numbers close to last year. It led into a modest debut for the holiday reality series, The Great Holiday Baking Show. While nothing special, I would call this acceptable for 10pm in December. It will be paired with The Great Christmas Light Fight starting next week. Finally on CBS, it was only Supergirl that was new, and it was up eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It posted its best total viewership in several weeks, but only got back a tenth from last week, which some had attributed to it being Thanksgiving week. I think this is really just about where this show is going to land. It skews a lot older than your average superhero show, but it is on CBS. It's also worth noting that NCIS: Los Angeles was not far off at all from its usual numbers with new episodes.

LOSER OF THE NIGHT: NONE (everything was up)
