Though perhaps too little too late, Fox’s Mob Doctor showed signs of life on Monday night, rising a tenth in the demo from its last original outing to score a 1.0 rating, while holding steady at 3.4 million total viewers. As such, it was the night’s only gainer.
Amongst the shows that dropped, Gossip Girl — with 660,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating — fell 31 and 25 percent, hitting what I suspect may be a series-low in the demo, while Castle (10.1 mil/1.9) failed to turn its convention-episode buzz into shiny numbers, instead slipping 7 and 14 percent to tie a series low rating.
Elsewhere on Monday….
* Dancing With the Stars drew 13.4 million total viewers (the night’s largest audience) while netting a 2.1 rating, down a few percentage points week-to-week. The Voice (12.2 mil/4.5) scored Monday’s best demo number, and was also down a smidgen.
* On CBS, How I Met Your Mother (7.2 mil/2.8), 2 Broke Girls (9.2 mil/3.3) and Mike & Molly (8.8 mil/2.8) each dipped a bit, while Partners was steady at 5.8 mil/2.1. Hawaii Five-0 (7.4 mil/2.0) slipped a tenth in the demo and placed third at 10 pm in total audience.
* Leading into The Mob Doctor, Bones was flat with 7.3 mil and a 2.0.
* Revolution (7.7 mil/2.9) dominated its time slot in the demo and edged out H50 in total audience, but dipped a few percentage points week-to-week.
