Feb 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

It was a hot night for CBS in the ratings, especially in the nine o’clock hour as "The Big Bang Theory" vaulted to a series high 6.0 rating in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic, according to TVbythenumbers.com.

CBS’ "Two and a Half Men" also enjoyed a boost, posting a 5.7 rating in the 18-49 demo, a three-year high.

To kick off the night, Fox won from 8-9 p.m. with "House" collecting a 5.1 in the 18-49 demo, ahead of ABC’s first hour of "The Bachelor" which had a 3.8, tying it with CBS’s "How I Met Your Mother" but beating "Accidentally on Purpose’s" 3.4.

NBC’s last airing of "Chuck" before the Olympics generated a 2.2, twice as good as CW’s "One Tree Hill" with a 1.1.

From 9-10, CBS dominated. The second hour of "The Bachelor" gave ABC a 4.4 in the 18-49 demo, more than Fox’s "24" with a 3.2, NBC’s "Heroes" with a 2.0 and CW’s "Life Unexpected" getting just a 0.9.

At 10 o’clock, CBS’s "CSI: Miami" enjoyed a 3.9 in the 18-49 to win the hour. ABC’s "Castle" collected a 2.5, and the penultimate episode of "The Jay Leno Show" managed a 1.2.
