On Monday night, Castle returned to the ABC lineup and it was pretty dire. But first up, The Bachelor was up 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo to a season high. It seems like this show will never die. However, Castle is a dying show. The veteran drama came back to a series low in total viewers and near series low in the demo despite the strong lead-in. It was just a tenth above the cheap Bachelor Live over the past couple weeks in the demo. Just like The Good Wife on CBS, it's time for this show to call it a day. On FOX, The X-Files had a very strong third week as it was down just a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo. I am sure FOX will do everything in their power to bring this show back again. At 9pm, Lucifer was down half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo. Its declining at a slightly faster rate than Files.

CBS may have gotten a small Super Bowl bump to its Monday lineup. There's always the theory that TVs stay on the channel the Super Bowl was on and that helps the 8pm show the next night. Well, that very well may be the case as Supergirl was up 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. It helped Scorpion as well, which was up eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. At 10pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on NBC, Superstore was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It has stabilized again but now it must face the Grammys next week. Telenovela followed and was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, The Biggest Loser was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Supergirl (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Castle (ABC)
