Stats Spotlight - Monday Night - Castle hits series low, Bones 150th, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly down

(Check out my website, www.seriesmonitor.com)

It wasn't your usual Monday lineup last night with the finale of ABC's Dancing With The Stars: All Stars contest last week. In its place last night, ABC aired two back to back episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which didn't do that great. More on that shortly

At 8pm, FOX aired the 150th episode of Bones. Shot from the perspective of a skull of a 14 year old as it was examined, it made for really interesting viewing, especially seeing the skull was shown just twice in the entire episode. The ratings perhaps didn't live up to expectations, with a 1.9 18/49 rating and 7.29 million viewers. This is down on last week's season high 2.4 rating and 7.96 million viewers

The 8pm episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition drew in a 0.9 rating and 4.23 million viewers, while over on CBS, How I Met Your Mother drew a 3.1 rating and 8.26 million viewers. Still on CBS, a repeat episode of 2 Broke Girls at 8:30pm earned a 2.2 rating and 6.72 million viewers

The Voice on NBC continued without the competition of Dancing With The Stars, but despite that, a 3.9 rating and 12.11 million viewers tuned in for the 2 hours to 10pm, which is down on last week's 4.2 rating while the audience numbers remained similar. On the CW, the 100th episode of 90210 aired, drawing a 0.5 rating and 0.99 million viewers, with those numbers almost identical to last week.

At 9pm, the new episode of 2 Broke Girls earned a 3.5 rating and 10.17 million viewers. This is quite a bit down on last week's 4.1 rating and 11.74 million viewers. The 9pm episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition did slightly better than its lead-in companion with a 1.0 rating and 4.61 million viewers. This makes The Mob Doctor's ratings look a bit better, with another excellent episode - this time with a Christmas theme - earning a 0.8 rating and 3.26 million viewers, down on last week thanks to the news that FOX will burn off the remaining 4 episodes in close proximity over the new year. Back on CBS at 9:30pm, Mike & Molly earned a 3.1 rating and 10.23 million viewers, well down on last week's performance of a 3.6 rating and 11.29 million viewers.

At 10pm, Revolution wasn't around, and it won't be until late March next year. Despite that, NBC scheduled Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas, which drew in a 2.8 rating and 8.88 million viewers. This result is very similar to last week's performance of Revolution, and it won the timeslot in ratings. CBS aired Hawaii Five-0, which won the timeslot in audience thanks to a 2.3 rating and 9.32 million viewers. The rating remains the same, though the audience dropped just shy of 1 million viewers on last week.

The news wasn't so good for ABC's Castle. The lack of a Dancing With The Stars lead-in coupled with good performance by the competition on other networks saw the first time Christmas themed episode draw a series low 1.7 rating, and a season low 8.50 million viewers, down from the last episode a fortnight ago, which earned a 2.0 rating and 10.36 million viewers.

The schedule is pretty chaotic over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas and the New Year with most of the shows experiencing a break of varying lengths. I won't list them all, but instead recommend you check out the SpoilerTV Plus site for the latest on the dates for the next episodes of your favorite shows

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
