The CW kicked off its first full week of premieres, with its
new Monday lineup premiering mostly even with last year's lineup, finishing
with an overall 0.4 rating/1 share.

At 8 p.m., Hart of Dixie drew a 0.4 rating with 18-49s
and the net's targeted adults 18-34 demo, which was down from its Tuesday
premiere last year by 43% (0.7) in both demos. It also matched what 90210 premiered to in that time slot
last year in 18-49s, but down a tenth with 18-34s.

Without the benefit of the highly rated Vampire Diaries as its lead in, Beauty
and the Beast
tumbled considerably from its year-ago Thursday premiere. The
sophomore drama also drew a 0.4 rating in both demos, which matched Gossip Girl's premiere in that space
last year with 18-49s, but off by 56% with 18-34s (0.9). It was down 67% from
its premiere last year in both demos (1.2).

The CW's lineup was pre-empted in New York due to NFL football.

NBC again won the night with a 4.1/11. The Blacklist, which received a full-season pickup last week, was
down a tenth from last week to a 3.2, while its lead-in The Voice dipped two tenths to a 4.5.

Fox was in second again with a 2.3/6. Bones was down 14% to a 1.9, while Sleepy Hollow slipped 10% to a 2.7.

After splitting last week, ABC overtook CBS for third with a 2.1/6. Dancing With the Stars rose a tenth to a
2.1, while Castle fell 9% to a 2.0.

CBS' Monday lineup continued to sag, finishing in a fourth-place
1.9/5. We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls and Mom all dipped two tenths each from last week to a 1.8, 2.2 and
2.0, respectively. Hostages shed
another 20% to a 1.2 at 10 p.m.
Leading off the night, How I Met Your
Mother
was even with a 2.9.
