On Monday night, many shows recovered from their dip against the Grammys. On NBC, it was a night of season finales. Superstore was back up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It got a well-deserved renewal today for surviving in a very difficult spot and giving NBC a glimmer of hope in the comedy world. At 8:30pm, Telenovela was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This one seems very unlikely to return. At 9pm, The Biggest Loser was up 1.1 million viewers and a good four tenths in the demo. This is a nice rebound for the finale. I'm not sure what NBC will do, but I think it'll be back in some capacities. I think it would be a smart thing to air this in the summer. On ABC, The Bachelor was back up 1.5 million viewers and three tenths in the demo, basically to its level from two weeks ago. Castle had a minor rebound as well, rising three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

On FOX, the season finale of the short six episode run of The X-Files was up half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo. FOX will bend over backwards to bring this back but it all depends on the creator and the actors. At 9pm, Lucifer was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo despite the improved lead-in. After its promising showing last week, this was a disappointment. Finally, it was CBS which had the roughest time airing its regular lineup after it was preempted for the Grammys. Supergirl was down six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Scorpion was hit the hardest, falling 1.5 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. Both Supergirl and Scorpion tied series lows and now they must deal with the return of The Voice next week. At 10pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down a million viewers and three tenths in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The X-Files (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Scorpion (CBS)
