FOX's "Bones" and "Sleepy Hollow" returned from their brief baseball hiatus to decent ratings Monday, each finishing a little below their most recent original episodes. The results for the night overall were mixed.

The start of live shows on "The Voice" drew the show's lowest Monday ratings of the fall, and "The Blacklist" dipped as well. "How I Met Your Mother" was up for CBS, but the rest of its lineup was down -- including the premiere of "Mike & Molly," which debuted below its 2012 premiere in adults 18-49. "Hart of Dixie" and "Beauty and the Beast" were also down.

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" and "Castle," however, each improved on last week, pending updates as a couple of its affiliates aired the "Monday Night Football" game.

ABC averaged 13.6 million viewers and an 8.8 rating/13 share in households in primetime, pending updates. NBC (11.2 million, 6.9/11) took second. CBS' 7.1 million viewers and 4.5/7 edged FOX's 7 million and 4.1/6 for third. The CW (852,000, 0.6/1) trailed.

NBC led the 18-49 demographic with a 3.4 rating. FOX came in second with a 2.3, finishing just ahead of ABC, 2.2, and CBS, 2.1. The CW was way off the pace with a 0.3.
