Fox’s "House" was the top show in the Nielsen ratings Monday night while NBC’s “The Event” returned from hiatus with a two-hour episode that did even more poorly than the struggling show was doing before the break, TVbytheNumbers.com reported.

“The Event” averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49, off 26% from its previous episode, which aired in November.

For the night, Fox came out on top in the 18-49 demo with a 2.9 average rating, ahead of ABC (2.5), CBS (2.3), Univision (1.5) and NBC (1.5). Fox won total viewers as well, averaging 9.3 million for the night to 8.5 million for ABC, 8.1 million for CBS, 6.6 million for NBC and 4.1 million for Univision.

At 8 p.m. "House" had a 3.8 in the 18-49 demographic, ahead of ABC’s first hour of "The Bachelor" with a 3.0 in the same demo. The first hour of "The Event" on NBC collected a 1.4 in the 18-49 demo. At 8:30, CBS’s "Mad Love" scored a 2.4.

At 9 p.m. "The Bachelor" rose to a 3.2 in the 18-49 demo to win the hour, while Fox’s "The Chicago Code" netted a 2.1. Hour two of "The Event" held to the same 1.4 average in the 18-49 demo.

The only new show at 10 p.m. was NBC’s "Harry’s Law," which had a 1.8 in the 18-49 demo–trailing a rerun of “Hawaii Five-0” on CBS, which averaged a 2.0 rating.
