On Monday night, the CBS lineup rose across the board. The best rise came from Kevin Can Wait, which was up 1.3 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The demo is the best since early November and the viewer total is the best since it was following The Big Bang Theory at the beginning of the season. At 8:30pm, Man with a Plan was up 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The viewer total is a series high and the demo was the best since the series premiere. At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Despite having a new lead-in this week, The Odd Couple was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Scorpion was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On ABC, The Bachelor was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, remaining one of the absolute beasts in broadcast. Two more episodes of Big Fan were on par respective to their episodes last week. Quantico starts in this slot next week.

On NBC, The New Celebrity Apprentice was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Then Timeless returned to the lineup for the first time since December 12. It was down 1.3 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. And finally, on January 16, NBC has its first Mon-Thurs show go below a 0.9 demo. That was an impressive streak considering the other networks accomplished that much earlier in the season. It also is probably the final nail in the coffin for Timeless, which has been just barely hanging on at respectable levels. Finally on FOX, their drama lineup came back for a three week run before 24: Legacy and APB take over Monday nights. Gotham was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Lucifer was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. I do not understand why FOX scheduled these shows the way they did. They now will be airing into the summer when they could have aired new episodes for three weeks in December (instead of 0) and five weeks in January (instead of 3). That's six episodes they could have gotten in before making way for the midseason lineup. I truly don't get it.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Kevin Can Wait (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Timeless (NBC)
