It's time for a journey through the CW Monday schedule in 2015-16...

|2015-16||Crazy Ex-Girlfriend||Crazy Ex-Girlfriend||Jane the Virgin||Jane the Virgin||23 (-29%)|

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was pretty much DOA with a 0.3 series premiere in mid-October, and an epic year-to-year decliner compared with last year's The Originals. But it at least held onto the premiere's 0.3 for the most part. Jane the Virgin had finished season one relatively well and managed to stay close to even in Plus in the fall, despite the enormous decline in lead-in.

The winter was easily the worst time of year for Jane, as it had a slump at pretty much the same time that season one started to pick up some heat.

Jane quietly held up pretty decently in the spring, with a run of 0.4's just after DST. Reign took over the 8:00 hour for the last five Mondays of the regular season and pretty much continued the Crazy Ex ratings tradition.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: One of the very few true ratings reach renewals of the season. But maybe it can benefit from the CW Friday mojo?
Jane the Virgin: Any hope for a sophomore bounce due to off-season streaming definitely didn't come to pass. But it really didn't hold up that badly considering its lead-ins were sooo much weaker. Grade: C+.
