Fasts Demo 2015 Nov MON.16

CBS:  SUPERGIRL gained 0.1 from last week, putting it at a comfortable if not stellar 1.8 that should guarantee a back order fairly soon.  SCORPION, though, dropped 0.2 to 1.6, and NCIS: LA was down 0.1 to 1.2.

FOX:  GOTHAM is approaching its fall finale in solid shape, up 0.1 to 1.6.  MINORITY REPORT returned from a week off at 0.7.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS fell 0.2 to 1.8, while CASTLE edged up 0.1 to 1.1.

NBC: The local simulcast of MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALLin Cincinnati on WLWT may lead to adjustment this afternoon.  Currently THE VOICE is down 0.1 from last week at 3.1, and BLINDSPOT is up 0.1 to 2.3.

CW:  Again, fast nationals may be inflated by MNF pre-emption in Houston on KIAH.  As of now, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND and JANE THE VIRGIN  are both up, respectively by 0.1 to 0.4 and by 0.2 to 0.6.

NBC expands its fictional Chicago tonight with the premiere of CHICAGO MED, while ABC is airing reruns in the 10PM slot where WICKED CITY has been canceled after just 3 airings.  On cable, FX has the season finale of THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER.
