In fact, it did so poorly out of the notable season enders last night that some of speculated as to whether or not it (and 90210 which BARELY beat it) should have been a series ender instead. Sorry, Ed!
Looks like the winners for the night were Dancing with the Stars, the season finale of Castle, and Hawaii Five-O. Two of them ABC shows. (5-0 is CBS) Let us just say that none of that comes as a shock to us, especially Castle, because we've said it before and we'll say it again: Nathan Fillion is rad.
The bottom dwellers of the evening (mostly NBC) included Chuck, Mad Love, 90210, The Event, Gossip Girl, and L&O:LA.
That's a bummer for the bottom shows, but we're willing to bet that they're there for a reason.
Here are some details:
ABC danced its way to another overnight Monday victory care of Dancing with the Stars, which stood well above anything else last night with a 14.8 rating/22 share from 8-10 p.m. Next on ABC was the season-finale of Castle at a dominant 8.6/14 at 10 p.m.
New episodes of canceled The Event (#4: 2.8/ 4) and Law & Order: Los Angeles (#3: 3.3/ 6). And The CW aired the season-finale episodes of 90210 (#5: 1.4/ 2) and Gossip Girl (#5: 1.2/ 2), which should have been series-enders.
Not awesome for the people involved, yeah, but like we said, there's gotta be a reason for such low ratings. Luckily, some of them have the chance to come back and earn their place next year!
Step up the game!
Great job to those who brought in the viewers!
