Broke Girls, making its 8/7c time-period debut with a guest appearance by Lindsay Lohan, averaged 7.2 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in 18-49 — on par with its most recent original episode (but down considerably from HIMYM’s average, natch). FWBL followed with a lackluster 5.7 million viewers and a 1.8 demo rating, down 30 percent from its HIMYM-boosted premiere two weeks ago.

Elsewhere on Monday: CBS’ Mom closed out its rookie season with 6.7 million viewers and a 1.9 in 18-49, down 13 percent from its last original outing; NBC’s The Voice fell to a cycle-low 3.3 demo rating, but it remained the night’s top young-adult draw (Dancing With the Stars was No. 1 in viewers with 14.2 million); and Fox’s Bones (5.7 million, 1.4) slipped 13 percent.
