CBS' Monday lineup continues to struggle.

Hostages slid even further Monday to a dangerously low 5.2 million viewers and 1.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, dropping 20 percent. Save for How I Met Your Mother (7.4 million, 2.9), the rest of CBS' comedies all fell to around the 2.0 rating mark: We Are Men (5.4 million, 1.8), 2 Broke Girls (7.2 million, 2.2) — which hit a series low — and Mom (6.7 million, 2.0).

NBC won the night with The Voice (14.3 million, 4.5) and The Blacklist (11.3 million, 3.2), which slipped two-tenths and one tenth, respectively.

On Fox, Bones 7.1 million (2.0) and Sleepy Hollow (7.8 million, 2.7) were both down a few tenths.

The CW's season premieres of Hart of Dixie (1.2 million, 0.4) and Beauty and the Beast (1.2 million, 0.4) were both down from their previous premieres, but improved on 90210's and Gossip Girl's performances in the slots last year.
