Buoyed by a surging Bachelor (10.3 million viewers, up 11 percent) the first part of Castle‘s two-episode Adrian Pasdar arc attracted 9 million viewers to score its most-watched episode since early November. (It also probably didn’t hurt that it was a kick-ass eppy.)
Over on Fox, House was up a tick in both total viewers (10.3 million) and the 18-49 demo (3.5), while lead-out Chicago Code added 600K viewers (to 7.9 million) and two-tenths in the demo (to 2.2).
Elsewhere on Monday:
8/7c | While Chuck‘s demo rating remain unchanged, Team Bartwoski snagged its largest audience (5.5 million) in three weeks. CBS’ How I Met Your Mother/Mad Love combo was down slightly from the prior week. 90210, meanwhile, jumped 7 percent in total viewers (to 1.5 million) and 11 percent adults 18-34.
9/8c | Despite airing a repeat (the first to result from Charlie Sheen’s medical leave), Two and a Half Men ranked as the night’s most-watched program (11.5 million). An original Mike and Molly edged out Men in the demo (3.2 vs. 3.0). Gossip Girl saw the night’s biggest increases, up 23 percent in total viewers (to 1.6 million) and 20 percent in 18-34. (Dan and Blair, FTW!)
10/9c | Hawaii Five-0 led in viewers (10.2 million, down a hair from last week) and in the demo (2.8, flat). Harry’s Law placed third in both categories (8.7 million, 1.7).
