Revamped 'Law & Order: LA' sputters in ratings
NBC rolled out the latest incarnation of Law & Order: Los Angeles and, despite shuffling the cast, the show returned to a series low Monday night.
LOLA delivered 5.9 million viewers and 1.5 preliminary adults 18-49 rating, down 32 percent from its last original. Lead-in Chuck also did no favors for its renewal odds — 4 million viewers and a series low 1.3 rating.
LOLA and Chuck weren’t the only ones falling to new lows last night, though. ABC’s Dancing With the Stars (4.3) was down 9 percent to a cycle low. While Castle (3.1) rose 11% this week to win its hour.
Olivia Wilde returned to Fox’s House (3.2), yet the show slipped 6%. Chicago Code (1.8) was steady.
CBS tried out Mike & Molly (2.5) in the Two and a Half Men slot and found out the show just doesn’t pull the same numbers without its powerful lead-in: Molly fell 17 percent to a series low. CBS also aired HIMYM (2.7), Mad Love (1.9) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.4).
