Fox’s Monday dramas each went out on an upswing last night, while NBC’s The Voice lowered.
Bones wrapped Season 8 with a controversial twist, 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.1 rating (per finals), rising a tenth in the demo week-to-week and up 11 percent from its previous finale.
The Following‘s freshman finale led out of that with 7.8 mil and a 2.7, up 11 and 13 percent.
With 12.7 million viewers and a 4.3 rating (adjusted up per finals), The Voice dropped 12 percent week-to-week, while Revolution slipped two tenths to 5.4 mil/1.8, placing second behind time slot rival Castle (10.5 mil/2.0, down 10 and 13 percent) in the demo.
Teeing up the aforementioned Castle, ABC’s Dancing With the Stars (13.5 mil/2.1) was flat, per finals.
Over on CBS, How I Met Your Mother (6.9 mil/2.7) was flat in the demo versus its last fresh outing, yet led all of Monday’s scripted fare in the measure. With an original lead-in, Rules of Engagement (6 mil/2.1) surged 25 percent. 2 Broke Girls (7.7 mil/2.6) and Mike & Molly (7.9 mil/2.4) each added two tenths, while Hawaii Five-0 (7.8 mil/1.7) dipped a tenth, trailing both of its 10 o’clock rivals.
The CW’s Oh Sit! (730K/0.3) and 90210 (550K/0.3) were both flat.
