The hold may be enough to clinch the series a back episodic order. Partners is the only new fall series that launched early in the season not to get a script or episodic pickup. Of the other CBS shows last night, How I Met Your Mother (2.8/7) was down 13% from three weeks ago to a season low, 2 Broke Girls (3.3/8) was down a tenth to tie its series low, Mike & Molly (2.8/7) was down 7% and Hawaii Five-0 (2.0/5) was down 5%.
NBC once again topped the night in adults 18-49, though its fast nationals may be inflated because of an NFL pre-emption in New Orleans. The Voice (4.5/11) was down 6% from last week, while Revolution (2.9/8) was down a tenth to a series low. (more…)
