TV Ratings: '2 Broke Girls' steady in 'HIMYM' slot, 'Voice,' 'Dancing' lead night

By Kyle Johnson,

With How I Met Your Mother gone now from CBS' Monday night, it would be expected for other shows' ratings to take a hit, but they barely lost any steam, with the exception of the new Friends with Better Lives.

NBC took the night with a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.805 million viewers. Hitfix reports that The Voice was down slightly to a 3.3 demo rating, but still easily beat everyone else. The Blacklist was a repeat, but still managed a decent 1.6 in the demo.

ABC was a distant second with a 1.9 in the demo, but had a much better overall audience with 12.15 million viewers. Dancing with the Stars was up slightly to a 2.3 demo rating. The network closed out the night with an encore of Castle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS was third with a 1.7 in the demo and 6.1 million viewers. In its new earlier slot 2 Broke Girls was fairly consistent with a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, only dropping a small amount. Freshman comedy Friends with Better Lives plummeted without HIMYM's last-week lead in, dropping to a 1.8 rating. Mike & Molly ticked up slightly to a 2.1 and Mom finished the season down slightly to a 1.9 in the demo.

Fox averaged a 1.4 in the demo and 5 million viewers. New episodes of Bones and The Following each pulled in a 1.4 in the demo, though that's a drop for the former.

Star-Crossed dropped to a 0.3 on the CW and The Tomorrow People took in a 0.4, with the network averaging 921,000 viewers and a 0.4 in the demo.
