TV Ratings: 'Mike & Molly' Goes It Alone on Monday
There's not a whole lot to say about the final TV Monday of 2014. Between the five broadcast networks, there was only one original telecast: CBS' Mike & Molly.
The comedy fared pretty well without any of its neighbors. Fast national returns from Nielsen give it a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.4 million viewers. That's up a tick from last week's episode, which also didn't have an original lead-in, and easily the highest-rated and most watched telecast of the night.
ABC gave Mike & Molly its only real competition with its final Peanuts holiday special of the season. A special outing of Happy New Year, Charlie Brown fetched a 1.5 rating in the key demo — up four-tenths of a point from last year.
