On Monday night, CBS had two hours of comedy for the first time in a couple years. An hour of Mike & Molly started things off. The 8pm episode was even with last week while the 8:30pm episode rose from there. After a repeat of The Big Bang Theory, The Odd Couple aired to a new series low but it didn't post horrible numbers given it repeat lead-in. All in all, this is acceptable for an end of season block and Mike & Molly is ending anyway. I think the performance of The Odd Couple still leaves it in the toss-up category. At 10pm, the season finale of NCIS: Los Angeles was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Will it return to this slot for a third year next season? On ABC, Dancing with the Stars was even with last week while Castle was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

FOX had a premiere that was completely ignored. But first, Gotham was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm was the series premiere of the long-delayed Houdini & Doyle. The cheap option for FOX is pretty much an after thought given its early May premiere date, but audiences paid no attention to it with a measly 0.7 demo. The performance of this show and Minority Report earlier in the season makes Lucifer's run even more impressive. This show will be lucky if it survives on Mondays into the summer months. Finally on NBC, The Voice was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo while Blindspot was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Houdini & Doyle (FOX)
