Oct 11, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The Nielsen ratings from Monday night showed that even as CBS’s lineup settles down after splashy premieres, the network continues its across-the-board strength, reports TVbytheNumbers.com.

CBS took an easy win for the night in the key demo of adults 18-49 with an average rating of 3.9, topping ABC (2.9 average), Fox (2.7), Univision (1.4) and NBC (1.2). Total viewers went to ABC with 15.1 million, to 11.1 million for CBS, 7.7 million for Fox, 3.8 million for NBC and 3.3 million for Univision.

At 8 p.m. CBS’s "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two Broke Girls" had a 3.9 and a 4.2, respectively, in the 18-49 demographic. Fox’s overrun of the American League Championship Series game had a 3.4 in 18-49, while ABC’s two-hour "Dancing With the Stars" had a 3.1. NBC’s two-hour "The Sing-Off" and CW’s "Gossip Girl" had a 1.4 and a 0.6, respectively.

At 9 p.m. CBS’s "Two and a Half Men" and "Mike & Molly" had a 5.8 and a 4.0, respectively, in the 18-49 demo. Fox’s "Terra Nova" had a 2.6 in the same demo, starting later than its usual 8 p.m. start because of baseball. CW’s "Hart of Dixie" had a 0.6 in the same demo.

At 10 p.m. CBS’s "Hawaii Five-0" had a 2.6 in adults 18-49, barely beating ABC’s "Castle" (2.4) and Fox’s "House" (2.3). "House" was shifted to the later time due to the game overrun.
