Ratings: Gossip Girl and Dixie Inch Up, HIMYM, Broke Girls and Smash Hit Lows

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.
