Monday night had the final week for The Big Bang Theory before it heads back to Thursday and it was down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 8:30pm, Kevin Can Wait was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It has had a strong run at 8:30pm but now it becomes the 8pm anchor starting next week when it will lead into the new Man with a Plan. At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's one hour premiere. The viewer total ties a series low. At 9:30pm, The Odd Couple had its season premiere and was awfully low with a 1.1 demo. We'll see how the 8pm hour goes next week but this is looking like an early weak spot in the CBS comedy lineup. At 10pm, Scorpion was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

On the CW, Supergirl started things off down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a solid second week on the CW. At 9pm, the season premiere of Jane the Virgin was on par with many results last year when it had a much weaker lead-in. Overall, it looks like the audience is loyal but the ceiling is low for this show. On ABC, Dancing with the Stars was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, Conviction was even in viewers but down another tenth in the demo to a horrible 0.7. Is ABC really going to let this air for weeks to come? On NBC, The Voice was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo. It was followed by a little bit more of an encouraging performance from Timeless, which was down three tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo despite the lead-in being down. This was heading south fast but this probably bought it some time (pardon the pun). Finally on FOX, Gotham was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo while Lucifer was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Odd Couple (CBS)
