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

  • NBC’s new drama series The Blacklist looks likely to earn its status as the most successful new show of the season, as last night’s episode hit a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and 11.35 million viewers, which is only a five-tenths drop from last week’s premiere rating of 3.8.
  • Also showing a strong hold was Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, which garnered a 3.0 rating and 7.93 million viewers for its third episode, dropping just 3% from last week’s rating.  Read Allison’s recap here.
  • Over at CBS, How I Met Your Mother continued to drop in its final season as last night’s episode scored a 3.1 rating and 7.73 million viewers, down 16% from last week’s 3.7-rated season premiere—which itself was down versus last year.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Monday, September 30th, including Mom, Bones, Castle, 2 Broke Girls, Hostages, and more.

  • The series premiere of the new comedy We Are Men garnered a 2.0 rating and 6.4 million viewers, which makes it the lowest-rated comedy series debut in CBS history.
  • 2 Broke Girls hit a 2.4 rating and 7.59 million viewers, tying its series low and dropping 14% from last week’s 2.8 rating.
  • Also down was Mom, garnering a 2.2 rating and 6.93 million viewers for a drop of 12% from last week’s premiere 2.5 rating.
  • Finally, the new drama series Hostages floundered, scoring a paltry 1.5 rating and 5.99 million viewers.  That’s a drop of 17% from last week’s underwhelming 1.8 rating for the series premiere.


  • On the flipside, NBC impressed as The Blacklist earned a 3.3 rating and 11.35 million viewers, dipping just a bit over last week’s 3.8 rating for the series premiere.  What kind of world are we living in where CBS dives and NBC stands tall?


  • Over on Fox, Bones hit a 2.2 rating and 7.07 million viewers, rising 16% over last week’s 1.9 rating.
  • The new drama series Sleepy Hollow continues to surprise, as it scored a 3.0 rating and 7.93 million viewers for a drop of only 3% from last week’s 3.1 rating.


  • Finally, ABC’s Castle notched a 2.2 rating and 10.9 million viewers, which is even with last week’s performance.
