CBS won the night with an overall 3.3/10. The Big Bang Theory declined 13% to a 5.4, Two and a Half Men dropped 7% to a 3.8 and Person of Interest was down 3% to a 3.0. Elementary remained even with a 2.2.

The CW rounded out the evening with a 0.8/2. The Vampire Diaries was down two tenths in the net's targeted 18-34 demo to a 1.0, while also dropping a tenth with 18-49s to a 1.0 as well. Beauty and the Beast fell a tenth in each to a 0.4 and 0.5, respectively.
ABC just had to get rid of "Last Resort," didn't they?
What happened to sticking w/shows. My wife, teen daughter and myself really enjoyed "Last Resort." We never gave any consideration to watching "Zero Hour."
It's another one of those stupid, high-concept shows that are always in danger of cancellation which meant the "mystery" would never be solved for the viewers.
When will the networks learn that the replacement show for a cancelled series will often fail as bad as this did?
