Monday TV Show Ratings: Revolution, Castle, Partners, Hawaii Five-0, 90210, Mike & Molly, HIMYM

Monday, October 15, 2012 ratings — We had another full night of primetime television with all original episodes — Dancing with the Stars, Castle, The Voice, Revolution, How I Met Your Mother, Partners, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0, 90210, and Gossip Girl — plus Major League Baseball.

On NBC, The Voice won the night in the 18-49 demographic with a 4.8 rating (on par with last week’s) and 11 million total viewers. Revolution stopped falling and drew a 3.4 rating (+13%) with 8.8 million viewers.

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars led the night in viewership with a 2.1 rating (-5% week-to-week change) and 12.4 million. Castle followed with a 2.0 rating (-9%) and 10.9 million.

On CBS, How I Met Your Mother drew a 3.2 rating (+3% change) with 8.1 million. That was followed by Partners with a 2.1 rating (+11%) and 6.2 million viewers.

At 9pm, 2 Broke Girls attracted a 3.3 rating (-3%) with 9.2 million and Mike & Molly garnered a 3.0 rating (+7%) with 9.0 million. Rounding out the night was Hawaii Five-0 with a 2.0 rating (+5%) and 8.4 million. It tied ABC’s Castle in the demo for second place.

On FOX, the MLB Play-offs attracted a meager 1.3 demo rating and 4.75 million viewers. Those are low numbers — but still not as bad as Mob Doctor’s recent ratings.

And on The CW, 90210 rose 50% in the demo to a 0.6 rating with 1.1 million viewers. Gossip Girl was steady with a 0.4 rating and 0.8 million viewers.

    I think Partners is a very cleverly written sit-com with extremely talent stars. It just started so we need to give it a chance and when characters start developing and plots become more unpredictable, it will be a hit. I’ve watched most of the new and even older sit-coms and I think they are inane and an insult to our intelligence, but Partners has prolific writers and with James Burrows and Komut, how can you resist? Will & Grace was not a favorite of mine, yet it grew on me and I started to like the witty banter. I think eventually we will start to care about these four characters and relate to their lives and experiences. One of the writers was an original FRIENDS writer that helped to bring that hit show to the top. I think it’ll be one of the best and many of my coharts agree.

      To each their own. I think it’s terrible on just about every level, from the lame writing to the (mis)cast, from the tired set design to the annoying musical interludes. It makes me mad that this is what CBS thinks is good comedy.

        I think CBS knows what a good comedy is. They’ve picked up a hybrid with themes from Will and Grace and Rules of Engagement which the producers have done a fine job with. The cast is very good based on the first few episodes and after building more chemistry throughout the first season, I think we’ll be in store for an excellent second season. David Krumholtz and Sophia Bush both have a loyal fan base in two completely different demographics, this has brought in a variety of viewers right from the start; including myself. This show can easily build a strong fan base over the first couple of years and has the potential to stay on the air for 8 seasons as a hit. If the writing stays fresh, expect big things.

    I thought that “Castle” Monday was terrific acting from all the characters.
    Esposito and Ryan were priceless in their quest to find out who Beckets
    boyfriend is.
    And Castle , well the stars were shining brightly…

    Well considering that they canceled Made in Jersey so early, I need to stop watching Partners. It’s as good as gone.
