Fasts Demo 2016 Feb MON.08

FOX:  THE X-FILES dropped 0.2 from last week to 2.5, and LUCIFER fell 0.3 to 1.7.  With 2 more X-FILES left, the question is where LUCIFER will be without that lead-in.

CBS:  After airing as the only original show in the line-up last week, SUPERGIRL rebounded on an all-new night by 0.3 to 1.8.  SCORPION and NCIS LA were both up 0.1 from their last original episodes, respectively to 2.0 and 1.6.

CW:  CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND outrated JANE THE VIRGIN for the first time, but for the wrong reason:  JANE fell 0.1 to 0.3, while CRAZY held at last week’s 0.4.

NBC:  SUPERSTORE remained at 1.4, and TELENOVELA gained 0.1 to 0.9.  THE BIGGEST LOSER was up 0.1 to 1.1.

ABC:  THE BACHELOR rose 0.1 to 2.4.  CASTLE returned to its 10PM slot at 1.1, just a tenth above what the BACHELOR AFTERSHOW did in the hour last week.

Megan Fox becomes the temporary new girl on NEW GIRL tonight, filling in during Zooey Deschanel’s maternity leave.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
