Fox’s House led Monday night, ABC’s The Bachelor held steady and a Two and a Half repeat haunted CBS with a great rating.
But the most noteworthy performance news last night wasn’t very sunny: NBC’s The Cape concluded its first season with a very low number. Down 8 percent this week — and hitting a series bottom (4.1 million viewers, 1.1 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) — the show is considered highly unlikely to return. Lead-in Chuck (5.3 million, 1.7) was stable, but this is the fifth week in a row the series has tied its all-time low. Harry’s Law (9.1 million, 1.8) was up 6 percent, however, reaching a four-week high.
ABC was first place in the demo, with The Bachelor (11.2 million, 3.4) staying the same despite the fact that the episode revealed the Dancing With the Stars cast. Castle (10.1 million, 2.8) was up slightly and won 10 p.m.
Fox was second, with House (11 million, 3.8) followed by Chicago Code (8.1 million, 2.1) modest but steady.
In third, CBS aired How I Met Your Mother (9.3 million, 3.4), Mad Love (8 million, 2.7), a Two and a Half Men repeat (11.6 million, 3.2), and Mike & Molly (11.4 million, 3.4 — and see Chuck Lorre’s Charlie Sheen-related vanity card that aired after the show here).
The CW had 90210 (1.4 million, 0.7) and Gossip Girl (1.4 million, 0.7).
