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

  • The disappointing final season of How I Met Your Mother continues to drone on, but last night’s episode marked a rise in both quality and ratings.  The Mother-infused episode garnered a 3.4 rating in the 18-49 demo and 8.7 million viewers, which marks the show’s best performance since its series premiere and is up four tenths over last week’s 3.0 rating.
  • Over on NBC, the successful new drama series The Blacklist hit a series low 2.9 rating and 10.28 million viewers, dropping three tenths from last week’s 3.1 rating.  Nevertheless, it was still the second most-watched scripted program of the night.
  • Also down was the new Fox series Sleepy Hollow, which notched a series low 2.5 rating and 6.94 million viewers, down two tenths from its last original episode’s 2.7 rating.
