The CW’s Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie were among the precious few Monday shows to register ratings gains this week.
Gossip Girl, with 1.12 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, was up 14 and 20 percent week-to-week, while Dixie (1.32 mil/0.6) ticked up 10 and 20 percent, delivering its best demo numbers since Feb. 20.
The night’s biggest drop was sustained by How I Met Your Mother, which with 7.3 mil and a 3.0 fell 14 percent in the demo to a season low. 2 Broke Girls (8.4 mil/3.3) in turn dipped to a series low.
Elsewhere on Monday:
8 pm | Dancing With the Stars held steady in audience (16.34 mil) but dipped 7 percent in the demo to an all-time performance show low of 2.8. The Voice (9.94 mil/3.6) slipped 6 and 10 percent, delivering a sixth straight Monday of declines. Bones (7 mil/2.1) was down a tenth to a season-low 2.1.
9 pm | Two and a Half Men (11 mil/3.7) rebounded slightly from last week’s all-time lows with gains of 6 percent and a tenth; Mike & Molly was flat with 9.6 mil/3.1. A wonderfully wacky, but in the end heartwarming, episode of House (5.62 mil/2.0) ticked up a tenth.
10 pm | Castle was steady with 11.5 mil and a 2.2, with Five-0 in repeat mode. (Did you catch the dinosaur action figure, brown coat loan and other subtle Firefly nods?) Smash (5.96 mil/1.9) dipped a tenth in the demo to a series low.
