Monday night saw all new episodes and some definite drops from freshman shows Intelligence and The Blacklist, though the former's numbers were much worse.
ABC managed to take the night with 8.24 million viewers, but all four major networks shared in the 18-49 demographic ratings win with a 2.1, reports HitFix. The Bachelor's two-hour episode managed a 2.2 in the demo, while Castle ticked upwards with a 1.9 rating.
CBS came in second with 7.96 million viewers and How I Met Your Mother was up for the night with a 3.0 rating. 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly also saw decent numbers with a 2.7 and 2.4, respectively. Mom was also up to a 2.1 rating. The numbers weren't good for new show Intelligence, however, which sank to a 1.1 in the ratings after premiering with a 2.4.
NBC came third, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with 6.8 million viewers. The Blacklist sagged slightly to a season low with a 2.5 in the 18-49 demo as it had to survive without singing competition The Voice as a lead-in. American Ninja Warrior special stayed steady from its last appearance at a 1.9 in the demo.
Fox averaged 6.6 million viewers for the night, but both shows did see an uptick in numbers. Almost Human was up to a 2.0, while Sleepy Hollow was at a 2.2 rating.
The CW did not tie in the demo and managed only a 0.4 rating and 1.05 million viewers. Hart of Dixie was up slightly to a 0.5, while Beauty and the Beast remained at a 0.3 in the demo.
