On Monday night, a Disney themed night provided a surge for Dancing with the Stars on ABC. It was up nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since this edition's premiere a month ago. But it provided absolutely no help to Quantico, which was up two tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo to a new series low. There are reports that this might get renewed for a third season but that would be so foolish by ABC. On FOX, the season finale of 24: Legacy was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. It's on the bubble for next season and I really could see it going either way. I don't think it deserves to come back, but it might. At 9pm, APB was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

On CBS, Kevin Can Wait was down a tenth in viewers and the demo to tie series lows. Man with a Plan and Superior Donuts were both up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. The season finale of 2 Broke Girls followed and was even with last week. This comedy lineup is nothing if not compatible. For Girls, it could have been the series finale but I tend to think it will get renewed for next year, although possibly held for midseason. At 10pm, Scorpion was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally on NBC, The Voice was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Taken was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Dancing with the Stars (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: 2 Broke Girls (CBS)
