Most of the usual gang of shows are all back in or around their regular spots on the chart, I’m talking about The Big Bang TheoryCSINCISNCIS: Los AngelesCriminal MindsGrey’s AnatomyHNIC and SHIELD. Over the past few weeks, some of the nation’s most popular shows were preempted or went into reruns. Most of the blame could be placed on the NCAA Basketball Tournament, but it seems things are back to normal now.

There is one exception however. The Amazing Race disappeared from the top-30 chart (due to CBS airing the Academy of Country Music Awards in its timeslot). Also, if you’re a fan of Castle, you’ll likely notice that ratings plummeted from 1,885,000 last week to 1,162,000 this week. That’s a drop from eighth spot for the week to 28th— pretty steep, but that’s likely because ABC aired a rerun on Monday.

Things got interesting on Monday night when How I Met Your Mother surged to second spot for the night for its finale and 13th spot for the week with 1,884,000 tuning in. It had only 1,035,000 watching the week before for 30th place for the week. How I Met You Mother’s surge dented CTV’s Masterchef Canada, which lost 56,000 viewers and Bones on Global, which lost nearly 40,000, but it didn’t seem to help City’s other shows. Friends with Better Lives and Mom didn’t appear in the top-30 chart.

On Tuesday, Person of Interest jumped by nearly 200,000 viewers week to week and Agents of Shield returned to the chart taking eighth place for the week and third for the night.

On Thursday, Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men returned with 3,816,000 and 1,672,000 viewers respectively. Grey’s jumped nearly 200,000, possibly due to a stronger lead-in

On Friday, Blue Bloods bested Hawaii Five-O with 1,992,000 tuning in compared to Five-O’s 1,867,000.
