Last Updated: October 28, 2014 @ 11:35 AM

Apparently, no one wants to get in bed with CW’s “Jane the Virgin” — at least not in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic, anyway. The critically well-received new drama dropped to just a 0.4 rating on Monday night; it pulled in about 1.1 million total viewers.

For CBS, “2 Broke Girls” premiered to a 2.4 rating — down 14 percent from last season’s opener — and 8.7 million viewers.

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.3 rating/9 share in the key demo and second in viewers with an average of 11.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a night-high 3.6/10 and had 12.1 million viewers. “The Blacklist” at 10 received a 2.6/7 and 9.8 million viewers.

ABC and CBS tied for second in ratings, both with a 2.0/6. ABC was first in viewers with 12 million, CBS was third with 8.9 million. However, due to local NFL preemptions in Dallas, fast national numbers for ABC are approximate.

For ABC, “Dancing With the Stars” at 8 earned a 2.1/6 and a primetime-best 13.2 million viewers. “Castle” at 10 received a 1.9/5 — up 27 percent from last week — and 9.7 million viewers.
