Monday TV Ratings: SLEEPY HOLLOW Dips, THE BLACKLIST Steady, and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Returns Way Down

     October 8, 2013


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

  • The recently renewed Sleepy Hollow dipped a bit this week, as the Fox drama scored a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demo and 7.76 million viewers.  That’s down three tenths from last week’s 3.0 rating.
  • Over on NBC, The Blacklist garnered a 3.2 rating and 11.26 million viewers, dropping just one tenth from last week.  The episode was the most-watched scripted program of the night, and NBC just recently picked the James Spader-led show up for a full season.
  • Over on The CW, Beauty and the Beast returned to a paltry 0.4 rating and 1.22 million viewers for its season premiere.  That’s down sharply from last year’s 1.1 rating for the premiere, and down one tenth from last year’s 0.5 rating season finale.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Monday, October 7th, including Bones, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, Mom, and more.
