Recapping our night-by-night look at the fall 2012 schedule, we start on Monday night.  ABC is keeping the exact same lineup as Fall 2011 and CBS is close, with only the new comedy  Partners at 8:30p, and 2 Broke Girls moving to the tentpole 9pm spot after the Thursday move of Two and a Half Men.

NBC brings The Voice into the Fall, followed by new drama Revolution at 10pm. For NBC's sake, I hope it lasts longer than The Playboy Club did.

We can only hope we'll get a little Revolution fan chatter joining the Castle v. Hawaii Five-0 trash talk on Tuesday mornings.

The CW moves Gossip Girl an hour later than last Fall for its final season (not clear on the episode count) and brings 90210 into the night. The Carrie Diaries is scheduled to enter the night after Gossip Girl is done.

Nothing nearly as newsworthy on the night for Fox as Terra Nova was last Fall, but rookie The Mob Doctor will follow Bones.

Take a trip down memory land with 2011's Monday Fall schedule:

    @bob, we have the same plan for Monday night. DWTS:All Stars followed by Hawaii Five-O. Sounds like there is a great season planned for H5O with Ving Rhames and Terrance Howard schedule to appear. And then during DWTS hiatus, I’m going to check out 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly. The former has so much potential.

  • Networkman

    I almost forgot, I do want to try Mob Doctor. I’ll check out its series premiere which will air a week before DWTS. If I like what I see, I may only watch 1 hour of DWTS this upcoming season before switching over to FOX.

  • Paul

    I loved the pilot of Revolution

  • Flame

    Monday used to be a busy night for me, now I only got Mother left.

  • Nick

    @TomSFBay

    Fat & Fatter – 3.2
    You’re a mean idiot.

  • Sarah

    It’s a busy night for me: Bones, DWTS, 90210, Castle, and Hawaii Five-0

  • Nick

    DWTS, Castle, Bones(favorite), & Revolution, maybe 2 Broke Girls, is it okay for 14 year olds to watch cause my kids are that age

  • capslocke

    I say that NBC wins Mondays, but not by as much as they’d like to.

    Mob Doctor is DOA, and Bones returns low.

    HIMYM, 2BG, Mike & Molly, and Hawaii 5- 0 will be on par with last season, but Partners will be a bubble show.

    Castle will return slightly up because of syndication on TNT, but will likely fall hard over the course of the season. DWTS will return slightly up as well.

    “maybe 2 Broke Girls, is it okay for 14 year olds to watch cause my kids are that age”

    None of the CBS comedies are family friendly.

  • Nick

    @rob60990

    None of the CBS comedies are family friendly.

    Actually, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly are surprisingly mellow about inappropriate topics, and even when they’re referenced, it’s subtly enough for teenagers to watch.

    But 2 Broke Girls is definitely not for kids.

  • NCJeff

    Sorry Revolution. I guess JJ Abrams didn’t get the message that the serialized mystery show concept was just a fad. Aside from Lost I don’t think there’s been a successful show using that concept, and Lost wasn’t all that big the last few seasons.

    Gotta say that people look pretty good for not having any power, soap, deodorant, etc. though.

  • Nick

    @NC Jeff

    Sorry Revolution. I guess JJ Abrams didn’t get the message that the serialized mystery show concept was just a fad. Aside from Lost I don’t think there’s been a successful show using that concept

    Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest, Fringe, Touch, etc, etc. I could go on forever.

    and Lost wasn’t all that big the last few seasons.

    This shows how little you know about ratings. Long-running shows never do better at the end of their run than the beginning. And Lost was still a big hit for ABC in season 6.

  • Justin121

    LOST was the #1 drama in its final season (Jan-May ’10).

  • Paul

    @NC Jeff, Don’t forget Heroes was huge its 1st season.

  • Dima

    Ratings Predictions for the season:

    Cbs
    How I Met Your Mother-3.7
    Partners-3.2 (airs 15-16 episodes and gone by January to make way for a day-after-Super-Bowl launch of Friend Me)
    2 Broke Girls-4.2
    Mike and Molly-3.4
    Hawaii Five-0-2.7

    NBC:

    The Voice-4.3 (for the fall season)
    Revolution-2.2

    FOX:

    Bones-2.2
    The Mob Doctor-1.5 (cancelled after 3 episodes)

    ABC:

    Dancing With the Stars-3.1 (for the fall season)
    Castle-2.4

  • NCJeff

    @Nick – So Fringe is a bit hit all the sudden?

    @Paul – yes, Hero’s was huge it’s first season but it never really repeated that success.

    Maybe Once upon A Time blurs the line, but it seems more of a drama with fantasy elements. I don’t follow it so maybe there’s more there than I’m recalling.

    Shows like Person of Interest are more procedural drama and don’t fall into the category I’m thinking of – the Lost ‘gimmick’ where there’s this big mystery that unfolds. Fringe was never a hit barely hangs on, it’s not the next X-Files. Surface, Terra Nova, Alcatraz, etc. haven’t worked.

    With fractured viewing habits I don’t think people are looking to engage in a show that they have to watch in order and stay tuned in on to solve the mystery. Even X-Files gave you stand-alone episodes that sometimes fed a master thread, but if you missed it no big deal.

    I just think that JJ Abrams is the king of the gimmick and, like M Night Shyamalan, keeps trying to use the same formula with diminishing results.

    @Paul
    Don’t forget Heroes was huge its 1st season.

    One friend say that revolution remmember him heroes a lot.

    Fringe was big hit in 1&2 seasons too. Season 1 was above 4.0 in demo and 10 millions.
