     December 4, 2012


Monday night’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • Coming off an incredibly soft lead-in from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ABC’s Castle hit a series-low 1.7 rating and 8.4 million viewers, dropping from its last new episode’s 2.0 rating.
  • Yet another subpar episode of How I Met Your Mother garnered a 3.0 rating and 8.2 million viewers, slipping from last week’s 3.3 rating.
  • Monday heavyweight 2 Broke Girls also dropped, hitting a 3.5 rating and 10.1 million viewers.  That’s down fairly sharply from last week’s season high 4.1 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Monday, December 3rd, including Bones, Hawaii Five-O, Gossip Girl, and more.

  • Hawaii Five-O was down a tad, hitting a 2.2 rating and 9.15 million viewers against last week’s season high 2.3 rating.


  • Over on ABC, Castle was adversely affected by a very soft lead-in as it scored a series low 1.7 rating and 8.4 million viewers.  That’s down from its last new episode’s 2.0 rating.
