ABC: Dancing with the Stars and Castle both checked-in under average, though they were #2 and #3 (respectively) in total viewers.
CBS: It looks like the schedule reshuffling helped 2 Broke Girls and Mom deliver better numbers this week. The renewal for Mom, plus leading-out from a Big Bang Theory repeat probably also gave the freshman comedy a boost.
The CW: Beauty and the Beast wins the Most Improved Player award this week, doubling its rating from last week and nearly doubling its audience. Runner-up for MIP goes to Hart of Dixie, which also showed huge week-to-week growth.
Fox: Bones was a little better than average this week. Sleepy Hollow took a nap this week, most likely getting ready for Halloween next week.
NBC: Although the network handily won the night, The Voice took a 10% hit in the ratings compared to its average as did The Blacklist. Neither show is in trouble, but it’s a long way to May.
