Nov 30, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Despite its all-repeat lineup, CBS led every hour in the 18-49 demo Monday night, TVbytheNumbers reports. And on a weak night overall for the broadcast networks, ABC finished behind Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, settling for fifth place in 18-49.

CBS wound up No. 1 for the night in the 18-49 demo with a 2.4 rating, followed by Fox (1.9), NBC (1.8), Univision (1.5) and ABC (1.3). In total viewers it was again CBS on top with an average of 8.6 million, followed by ABC (6.7 million), NBC (6.0 million), Fox (5.7 million) and Univision (3.6 million).

At 8 p.m. NBC’s "Chuck" averaged a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic, ahead of ABC’s "Skating With the Stars" with a 1.2 in the same demo, and CW’s "90210" with just a 1.0 in that demo for the hour. Repeats of “How I Met Your Mother” (2.7) and “Rules of Engagement” (2.4) carried the hour on CBS.

At 9 p.m. Fox’s "Lie to Me" was tops for new shows with a 2.2 in the 18-49 demographic, while the last 2010 episode of NBC’s "The Event" managed to score an average 1.85 in the 18-49 demo for the hour. Until 9:30, ABC’s "Skating" had a 1.2 in the 18-49, then the first half-hour of ABC’s "CMA Country Christmas" logged a mean score of 1.4 in the 18-49 demographic. CBS’s repeats of “Two and a Half Men” (3.0) and “Mike & Molly” (2.3) won the hour in the 18-49 demo.

At 10 p.m. NBC’s "Chase" had a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demo, to a 1.4 average for ABC’s “CMA” show. A repeat of “Hawaii 5-0” on CBS led the hour with a 1.9 average rating in 18-49.

  1. The Event scored 1.85, it is time for NBC to give up. No one cares.
