There were two series finales on Monday night. On CBS, Mike & Molly bid farewell after six seasons with two final episodes. The 8pm episode was down two tenths in the demo from last week's 8pm edition but the series finale at 8:30pm was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. This was never a spectacular performer but always a reliable show for CBS. It's kind of surprising given their comedy expansion for next season that they didn't keep it as a plug-in option. At 9:30pm, The Odd Couple was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, Person of Interest fell below a 1.0 demo for the first time ever, dropping half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo.

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The series finale of Castle was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. It probably would have spiked more had there been more time to promote it as a series finale but it was a season high nonetheless. Castle has had a great eight year run on ABC but it was time for it to be done. On NBC, The Voice and Blindspot were both down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Gotham was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while Houdini & Doyle was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Castle (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Person of Interest (CBS)
