Ratings: Voice Is Up and Down, Gossip Girl Drops But Dixie Holds Steady, Broke Girls Ends Low
Spotted: Gossip Girl drawing 870,000 total viewers this Monday, while scoring a 0.4 demo rating, translating into week-to-week declines of 15 and 33 percent. That said, the CW sudser is still expected to return in the fall for a shortened final season.
The good news for CW bubble show Hart Of Dixie is that it held rock steady, with 1.33 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. Next Monday: Both CW dramas finale!
Monday’s only gainers were The Voice (10.5 mil/3.7, up two tenths) — though it was down 16 percent from last summer’s final performance show — the Castle finale (up 13 and 9 percent to 12.6 mil/2.5), and Smash‘s penultimate episode (6 mil/1.9, up 11 percent and a tenth). Fun fact: ABC notes that Castle hit more than six-month highs with its season-ender, wrapping its most-watched season ever (up 8 percent YOY).
* 2 Broke Girls‘ hour-long freshman finale drew 8.9 mil and a 3.2, down 11 percent in the demo to a series low. Two and a Half Men and Mike & Molly were steadier.
* Fox’s Bones (6.9 mil/1.9) dipped a hair, while House (6.2 mil/2.1) held steady with another excellent episode. Can you believe that [spoiler] quit?!
* Dancing With the Stars (16 mil/2.6) dipped 7 percent to hit a new all-time low for a performance show.
* Hawaii Five-0 was down 15 and 8 percent to 9.24 mil/2.3, placing second on both counts behind Castle.
