Midseason Matchups 2012, Monday


Bold indicates a timeslot change; ALL CAPS indicates a midseason series premiere

8/7c

Winter Broadcast: The Bachelor (ABC, 1/2) vs. How I Met Your Mother/2 Broke Girls (CBS) vs. Who's Still Standing? (NBC) vs. House (Fox, 1/23) vs. Gossip Girl (CW)

Spring Broadcast: Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 3/19) vs. How I Met Your Mother/2 Broke Girls (CBS) vs. The Voice (NBC, 2/6) vs. House (Fox) vs. Gossip Girl (CW)

Cable: Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family, 1/2)

Projected A18-49 winner: How I Met Your Mother/2 Broke Girls (CBS)

Notes: Is House "an 8:00 show," or will this move to the lower-viewing period make its already ugly year-to-year drops even worse?

9/8c

Winter Broadcast: The Bachelor (ABC, 1/2) vs. Two and a Half Men/Mike and Molly (CBS) vs. Fear Factor (NBC) vs. ALCATRAZ (Fox, 1/16) vs. Hart of Dixie (CW)

Spring Broadcast: Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 3/19) vs. Two and a Half Men/Mike and Molly (CBS) vs. The Voice (NBC, 2/6) vs. TOUCH (Fox, 3/19) vs. Hart of Dixie (CW)

Cable: The Lying Game (ABC Family, 1/2), American Pickers (History), Being Human (Syfy, 1/16), WWE Raw (USA)

Projected A18-49 winner: Two and a Half Men/Mike and Molly (CBS)

Notes: This will be a competitive hour provided The Voice does anything at all. (Won't be tough to outrate this fall's The Sing-Off.) That said, I don't think it'll be fair to blame the competition should Alcatraz and Touch flounder. They seem pretty unlike anything they'll face.

10/9c

Winter Broadcast: Castle (ABC) vs. Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) vs. Rock Center (NBC)

Spring Broadcast: Castle (ABC) vs. Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) vs. SMASH (NBC, 2/6)

Cable: Pawn Stars (History), LOST GIRL (Syfy, 1/16), WWE Raw (USA)

Projected A18-49 winner: Hawaii Five-0 (CBS)

Notes: It's not totally impossible that Smash does well enough to win this hour, but I'm playing it safe. It would be a bit of an oddity for there to be a 10/9c hour with three legitimate successes.

Other Midseason Matchups:
Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Sunday
