-Losers (excluding repeats):

CBS dominated the Monday overnights, beating second-place ABC by three percent. And Fox continues to benefit from The Following, which is morphing into a modest hit. But NBC minus The Voice has tumbled into the distant No. 4 spot. And weaker lead-in support from The Biggest Loser has not helped new drama Deception at 10 p.m.
How I Met Your Mother, which will officially conclude next season, opened the evening for CBS with a dominant 6.4 rating/10 share in the overnights. Recent returnee Rules of Engagement is a huge drop from year-ago time period occupant 2 Broke Girls, but a 5.4/ 8 at 8:30 p.m. last night is still a major improvement from failed fall time period occupant Partners. 2 Broke Girls at 9 p.m. topped the night with a 7.5/11, which led into a 7.0/10 (#1) for compatible Mike & Molly at 9:30 p.m. And three-year-old Hawaii Five-O capped off the evening tied with Castle on ABC for first at a 6.3/11 at 10 p.m.
All in all, CBS is in good shape on Monday. But what the network needs next season in a new hit sitcom at 8:30 p.m. Rules of Engagement is dependable, but the future is dependent on new programming blood.
In the battle of The Bachelor on ABC versus The Biggest Loser on NBC, it was no contest with reliable The Bachelor (6.2/10) a hefty 63 percent ahead of The Biggest Loser (3.8/ 6) in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. And that 6.2 rating for The Bachelor was five percent above the 5.9/ 9 on the year-ago evening. But the variation between the two will be smaller once the adult 18-49 (and other demo) results are available.
At 10 p.m., aforementioned Castle on ABC was on the map with a dominant 6.3/11, which from an overnight perspective was perfectly compatible with lead-in The Bachelor. But week six of competing NBC scripted drama Deception remained a bust at a 2.4/ 4, which compared to year-ago occupant Smash (5.7/10 on 2/13/12) was down by 58 percent. Since NBC already axed Do No Harm, however, chances are all the order episodes of Deception will air.
In episode four news, Kevin Bacon Fox drama The Following slipped a bit to a third-place 5.3/ 8 from 9-10 p.m. But that was still 26 percent above year-ago occupant Alcatraz (4.2/ 6 on 2/13/12). It is a major improvement over recent time period occupant The Mob Doctor. And the retention out of already renewed lead-in Bones (#3: 5.9/ 9 from 8-10 p.m.) was solid at 90 percent. Four-week overnight track for The Following: 6.7/10 – 6.3/10 – 5.9/ 9 – 5.3/ 8.
Last-place The CW closed the night with episode five of Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries, which was only equal to year-ago occupant Gossip Girl at a 1.1/ 2, and sinking 90210 (#5: 0.7/ 1). At this point, The CW needs to finally let 90210 go.
In late night, David Letterman on CBS topped the 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. daypart with a 2.8/ 7 in the overnights (3.1/ 7 to 2.4/ 7 by half-hour: equal to the year-ago evening). Next was Jay Leno on NBC at a 2.5/ 7 (3.0/ 7 to 2.0/ 6: -22 percent), followed by relocated Jimmy Kimmel on ABC at a 2.4/ 6 (2.9/ 7 to 1.8/ 5). Nightline on the year-ago evening was stronger in the overnights with a 3.6/ 9 in the 11:30 p.m. half-hour, but Kimmel is much more of an attraction for the young demos. And it is the advertisers who count, after all.
Craig Ferguson on CBS led the 12:30-1:30 a.m. daypart with a 1.4/ 5 in the overnights (1.5/ 5 to 1.2/ 4: no change), with Jimmy Fallon on NBC at a 1.3/ 4 (1.4/ 5 to 1.1/ 4: -13). Relocated Nightline on ABC, meanwhile, scored at 1.4/ 5 in the 12:30 a.m. half-hour.
Last Call With Carson Daly closed the night for NBC with a 0.8/ 3 at 1:30 a.m., which was 11 percent below the year-ago evening.
