Two Monday series found out their fate since their last airings, with Fox renewing The Following yesterday and the CW cancelling 90210 on Friday. Neither decision had an impact on the shows’ ratings last night as both The Following and 90210 matched their 18-49 ratings from last week. With CBS in mostly repeats, The Following (2.8/7, 8.7 million viewers) was the top program of the night in adults 18-49 and total viewers. Paired with veteran Bones (2.2/6), which was off a tenth, Fox won the night in 18-49.
ABC‘s The Bachelor had another solid showing this season, with the two-hour Women Tell All special posting a 2.7/7, up 8% from last year’s Women Tell All episode. A repeat Castle (1.4/4) won the 10 PM hour over an original Deception (1.1/3) and a Hawaii Five-0 rerun (1.3/4). NBC’s Deception was down 8% from last week to match its all-time low. The Biggest Loser (2.1/6) was even with its fast national last week, down a tenth from the final. The only original on CBS last night was Rules Of Engagement (2.2/6), which was down 19% from last week when it had an original How I Met Your Mother lead-in to hit a season low. On the CW, The Carrie Diaries (0.5/1) was up a tenth from last week, while 90210 (0.3/1) was flat.
