CBS’ Monday lineup recovered nicely from the head-scratching ratings losses last Monday. How I Met Your Mother (3.8/10) was up 12%, 2 Broke Girls (4.0/10) and Two And A Half Men (4.1/10) were both up 5%. Mike & Molly (3.4/8) was even, while Hawaii Five-0 (2.8/7) was up 4%. There was good news and not-so-good news for NBC: It won the night in 18-49 (4.6/11) and total viewers (12.6 million), and The Voice (5.8/14) was down only a tenth from its fast national last week and up 23% from the same episode last year to rank as a dominant No. 1 for the night in all key measures. But at 10 PM, Smash (2.3/6) was down 18% from last week. While 2.3 is still a respectable demo rating at 10 PM, the drops of 26% last week and 18% this week indicate that the musical dramedy might still have ways to go before it bottoms out. Even worse, it dropped a big 26% from the 10 PM to the 10:30 PM half-hour. Smash lost the 10 PM demo race for the first time since its launch to Hawaii Five-0. ABC’s The Bachelor (2.5/6) held steady for a third consecutive week, while Castle (2.1/5) inched up a tenth. Fox’s House (2.3/6) and Alcatraz (1.8/4) were both down another tenth from last week for a fresh season/series low. Alcatraz has now been slipping steadily since its launch as it still searches for the bottom. The CW’s Gossip Girl and Hart Of Dixie were steady.
