Monday Night Ratings: SMASH Hits Low, GOSSIP GIRL Up, HART OF DIXIE Returns Solid

The Monday night Nielsen ratings are in new scripted episodes on the broadcast networks competing with THE VOICE and DANCING WITH THE STARS. Below is a roundup of April 16 ratings reports we have so far.

From ABC:
ABC’s CASTLE won the 10 o’clock hour by impressive margins in Total Viewers and key Adults (AD18-49/AD25-54) to stand as Monday’s most-watched scripted show overall.

In the hour, ABC’s CASTLE beat out NBC’s first-run SMASH by 5.5 million viewers (11.5 million vs. 6.0 million), by a best-yet 39% in Adults 25-54 (3.2/8 vs. 2.3/5) and by a best-yet 16% in Adults 18-49 (2.2/6 vs. 1.9/5). “Castle” also qualified was Monday’s No. 1 drama with viewers and key Adults (AD18-49/AD25-54), outdelivering Fox’s BONES and HOUSE, as well as NBC’s SMASH.

From TV Guide:
SMASH (5.9 million, 1.9) slumped to a series low. Still, that was enough for NBC to win the coveted demo with a 3.1 average.

GOSSIP GIRL 1.1 million (0.6)
HART OF DIXIE 1.3 million (0.6)
