A bit of a bump for Revolution, but not much more good news for the networks last night.

Episode Track Mon May 6 2013

CBS:  The upcoming season finale for HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER seems to be exciting no one, as the show hit a season low 2.6, while RULES OF ENGAGEMENT tied its season low 2.1.  In final numbers, 2 BROKE GIRLS creeped up slightly to 2.7, but even with an upward adjustment, MIKE & MOLLY was down 0.1 from last week to 2.3.  HAWAII 5-0 was up 0.2 to a still below-average 1.9.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS hit a new all-time Monday low 2.0, which was even with CASTLE (which stayed steady with last week).

NBC:  Even with an upward adjustment, it was an off-night for THE VOICE, down 0.2 from last week to 4.1.  REVOLUTION recovered some ground and rose (after a downward adjustment due to its actual 10:01PM start time) 0.2 to 2.0.

FOX:  A RIHANNA 777 special was a painful 0.7 nonstarter, then a BONES rerun managed 0.6.

CW:  Both OH SIT and 90210 held even at 0.3.

Everything is new tonight, and HART OF DIXIE has its Season 2 finale.  On cable, a number to watch will be Comedy Central’s INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, which got off to a good start in last week’s premiere.
