For the night, ABC averaged a 3.9 demo rating with 17.8 million viewers.New episodes of House (3.2, 8.9 million) and The Chicago Code (1.8, 5.9 million) were down and flat, respectively.

How I Met Your Mother (2.7, 6.8 million), Mad Love (1.9, 5.4 million), Mike & Molly (2.5, 7.9 million) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.4, 9.1 million) all dropped double-digits for season lows. Univision (2.1, 5.2) was a strong fourth for the night with the 90-minute finale of Eva Luna averaging a 2.2 demo rating with 5.6 million viewers overall. The return of Law & Order: Los Angeles did not help NBC (1.4, 5.3 million), which was ensconced in fifth place.

And 8 p.m. drama Chuck (1.3, 4.0 million) dropped 13 percent to also hit a series low.
