    I think 2Broke Girls and Mom held up pretty well considering the competition they had! I mean The second hour of the VOICE and Sleepy Hallow which is doing great for Fox..Both shows were hilarious last night!! I don’t bother watching The Voice since it’s get enough attention as it is!! I hope Agents Of Sheild and NCIS put a dent in they ratings .btw just watched Trophy Wife and it was hilarious!

    What CBS should’ve done last year:

    HIMYM – Mike & Molly – 2.5 Men – 2 Broke Girls

    What CBS did last year:

    HIMYM – Partners – 2 Broke Girls – Mike & Molly

    Now they ruined Men, Girls, Molly, Thrusday, and Monday. Nice job.

    And yes, I think they should’ve kept trying new shows post-TBBT before expanding the Thursday block. Both Girls and Molly should’ve stayed on Mondays for a) staibility and b) inhereting the Men and HIMYM slots.

    The night’s biggest winners:

    – Sleepy Hollow: new show premiering strong and holding strong in its second week against premiere week of all other shows.

    – The Voice.

    – HIMYM: pulling that 3.6 all on its own; not part of a strong line-up or a Charlie Sheen meltdown.

    – The Blacklist: although Revolution set the bar pretty high with that 4.1 last year, a 3.8 is still big, very big for a new show. Let’s see if it holds.

    The night’s bigggest losers:

    – Mom: most anticipated new show for the fall, from producer Chuck Lorre, etc. etc.

    – 2 Broke Girls

    – Hostages: less of a bad showing than Mom and 2BG if you ask me. Had it pulled, say, a 2.2 -only four tenths higher- it wouldn’t have looked so bad coming off 2BG’s 2.8 and Mom’s 2.5. The whole (supposedly reliable) line-up underdelivered. Still bad, though.

    Bones, Castle, DWTS: average.

  • WillyWonka

    I’m shocked at the Voice, even before the terrible X-Factor ratings I was certain that these singing competitions would be down quite a bit overall this year due to ‘people’ being tired of them (yeah, I’m projecting).

    And with the awful X-Factor ratings I was sure the Voice would suffer aswell (although obviously not near as much as X-factor), but instead launches with killer ratings.

    That leaves X-Factor as the singing competition people just didn’t want, FOX needs to cut this one loose.

  • ateofi

    Glad to see Castle held so well against competition – it’s already 6th season :) The blacklist debut was higher than I expected and the show caught my attention. Hostages is DoA – I find the whole premise and trailer depressig and boring. Next week it will get 1.6 or even 1.5 and below 7 million viewers. It’s unbelievable how CBS screwed monday night schedule since last season. They such good bombo with TAHM (and M&M) even if it was losing viewers it would still do better than Partners or Mom.

  • Jon

    Mom will not see another 2.5 in it’s run. I’m guessing it will be under 2 by Halloween. It’s too bad Hostages was widely ignored. The pilot was pretty darn good.

  • RandomCommentor

    NBC – Voice is a killer, and those Blacklist numbers are amazing. Of course the test is if Blacklist can hold unto most of those viewers…

    CBS – Looks like 2BG could be on a downward trend. Also, I think logically they should have had Mom premiere at 9 instead of 9:30. Hostages is fairly week for a premiere.

    ABC – Average all night, about the same ratings as last year. Actually, they are lucky DWTS is still holding up so well, at least for now.

    FOX – Bones is doing what it always does; calls for death based on ratings alone is rather premature unless it falls much from this (not to mention to compete against voice+HIMYM). Pretty surprised Sleepy Hollow held that much for its 2nd week, could turn out to be a decent hit for Fox, and if that’s the case they pretty much have Mondays at a decent pace all year.

  • Mumbo

    So weird to see NBC put this much of a hurting on CBS. CBS’s Monday night used to be impregnable, but NBC stomped them. Badly.

    Mom is probably the biggest disappointment. I expected significantly better numbers than that. Chuck Lorre is usually a slam dunk for a hit. And 2 Broke Girls looking a little down thar, that sure didn’t help.

  • Flame

    @Patrick G, who wrote: “Who wants to watch a show threatening the US President with death and taking a bunch of people hostage? DEPRESSING !!”

    -> last time I checked that premise worked quite well for Twenty-Four

    When I saw the early promos for CBS’ new shows some months back, I had a gut feeling the Tiffany Network had made some mistakes. Anna Faris’ show, MOM, was nearly unwatchable. Alcoholism, drug addiction and child neglect might work as comic fodder for a few minutes, but an entire series built around those themes, especially a comedy, seems destined to not find an audience. Hostages didn’t seem that bad. Toni Collette is an excellent actress. But I don’t think the show has much chance of survival. At least 2GB and MOM could point to the Voice as the reason their ratings were not exactly sparkling. Hostages didn’t have to compete with screechfest, so I think the show is in deep trouble. Never really understood why CBS wanted to make two limited run series and put them on at 10 pm on Monday night. These ratings are no improvement at all on H50’s ratings.

    The Millers and The Crazy Ones look pretty lame from the promos. TAAHM appears to be in no man’s land this season. Somehow I don’t believe today’s viewers will stick around for an hour through two shows, TMs and TCOs, just see the worn-out smutty sitcome that used to star Charlie Sheen.

    With all the damage on the rest of the line-up, maybe TGW and The Mentalist will get a reprieve and H50 might stick around. It seems possible that CBS may lose the ratings crown this year. My brother is always talking about how arrogant CBS is when it comes to discarding shows like Gary Unmarried, which find an audience and following (just not up to CBS’ lofty standards)and bringing on new stuff that many people don’t like. He keeps saying that arrogance is going to come back to haunt them one day. Unless these shows fool me, I would almost bet that all the new CBS comedies will fail to achieve a second season. Combine that with HIMYM definitely leaving and fading veteran program, TGW and the Mentalist, and the picture is a lot less sunshine and roses for CBS than is usually the case.

    Where are all the voice hatred now lol

    I fully agree with you. Mom’s previews were not funny at all and the topic is rather depressing. Also Hostages previews were boring and the plot is repetitive – we even had an episode of PoI about a surgeon forced to kill CEO of big company during surgery. How can yopu drag this for 15 episodes. Also, the replacement Intelligence looks awful and this guy from LOST is so god damn annoying. It will flop as well so I don;t see these shows having better ratings than H50 which, by the way, went up significantly in winter -the show had 2.3-2.4 demo. I don’t that happening with Hostages, next wek this show will have 1.6 and below 7 million viewers.

  • Russell

    This is what I think:

    CBS: CBS should leave Monday alone (except for We Are Men, which will be cancelled) and should be replaced by Mike And Molly. Mom is one of the best comedies I’ve seen in a long time and it will build. I would leave Hostages where it is, it’s a damn good. I think 2 Broke Girls and Mom’s ratings will improve as Sleepy Hollow and Stars fall. How I Met Your Mother is doing just great for its’ last season.

    FOX: Bones is in its’ last season. It’s old and tired. If it moves to Friday that is where it will die. Sleepy Hollow will continue to fall as the weeks go by but it will see a second season.

    ABC: Dancing With The Stars is falling already. It’s demo will fall below a 2.0 and it will shrink a little more with viewers. Castle will do about the same as last year or a little lower. I could see it at 1.9 or 2.0.

    NBC: Unfortunately, The Voice is still hot, I can’t stand the show and don’t know what all the fuss is about. The Blacklist will succeed because of The Voice (just like Revolution).

    CW: doesn’t matter.

  • WOW

    Maybe if you would care to watch it The Voice for once you might be converted Russell. I don’t understand those that don’t watch shows on a particular network just out of spite and then bash it without any viewing experience.

    I think The Voice will grow even more because those that are watching it because of the Emmy have said on Twitter that they fully deserved to win after reviewing it and pledged to follow the show from now on.

  • WOW

    My only concern for The Voice ratings today is that there was an obvious portion of the audience that expected Shakira and Usher to be still there for this cycle and might not tune in for yesterdays show.

  • gerry

    got around to watching hostages last night and i think its pretty tight so far. it was a bit exposition heavy, but it is also a pilot. cbs has pumped so much money to it, they’ll air it all, won’t renew, and perhaps switch it up w a different night. its a shame though, more people should have watched it, its a decent show. (though it probably suffers from being on the wrong network, which is kind of what i thought when i saw it promo back in may.)

  • E

    I really hope that HIYM can get over 10 million during the season. Such a great show. They were so close to the 10 million mark this week! Got to do it next week!

  • nerv

    Sad that CBS’ Monday line-up stumbled at the start considering this is their youngest skewing daw. A noticeable fall from HIMYM to 2BG. I guess HIMYM became the block’s anchor all along when 2AAHM moved to Thursdays. Too bad it’s in its last season. Hoping that 2BG picks up. Nice start for The Voice and SH maybe steady.

  • Rebecca

    Enjoyed the second episode of Sleepy Hollow more than the pilot, so I’ll stick with it.
