The Carrie Diaries had a modest debut Monday night.

The CW's Sex and the City prequel bowed to 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, just a tenth higher than 90210's average in the slot. An encore at 9 p.m. out-performed Gossip Girl's numbers in that hour.

CBS won the night, as its sitcoms all rose, with How I Met Your Mother (10.4 million, 3.8) and 2 Broke Girls (12.2 million, 4.1) both hitting season highs. Hawaii Five-0's "Choose Your Own Ending" episode (9.4 million, 2.4) was flat. Five-0 easily beat Castle (9.1 million, 1.9) and Deception (4.1 million, 1.6), which fell four-tenths from its premiere last week.

Castle's and Deception's lead-ins, The Bachelor (7.4 million, 2.4) and The Biggest Loser (6.2 million, 2.4) were up and steady, respectively.

On Fox, Bones' two episodes averaged 8 million viewers and a 2.1, up from its last new episode.
