On Monday night, it was ABC's The Bachelor that continued to shine brightest. It was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a season high. But there was bad news at 10pm and the new slot for Quantico. It was only a very small improvement from its Sunday's results despite a much stronger lead-in. This was about as bad as it could have gone for Quantico on Monday and I don't see how ABC can justify giving it a third season. It could have had the Sunday excuse but this was one of ABC's best slots and there was very little competition. The CW lineup was back for the first time since late November. Supergirl was down big (eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo) but that was compared to the Crossover Week. This result was in line with episodes before that. At 9pm, Jane the Virgin was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

It was another good night for CBS Monday. Kevin Can Wait was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Man with a Plan followed and was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo, tying series highs in both categories. In the demo, it tied its series premiere back in October. This show seems to be helping its case more each week. At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season high. Following a repeat of The Big Bang Theory instead of The Odd Couple, Scorpion was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. On NBC, The New Celebrity Apprentice was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Timeless was even. Finally on FOX, Gotham was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo and Lucifer was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. This January run for these shows is exemplifying how FOX mishandled these shows by having them go on an extended break after next week.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Man with a Plan (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Quantico (ABC)
