Fox won Monday night in adults 18 to 49 with back-to-back episodes of its summer reality series “Hell’s Kitchen,” narrowly beating out CBS’s schedule of comedy and “CSI: Miami” repeats.

The 9 p.m. (ET) edition of “Hell’s Kitchen” scored a 3.6 in the demo, a number that includes live viewing and same-day viewing via digital video recorders, according to Nielsen Media Research.

CBS’s “CSI: Miami” at 10 p.m. was No.2 for Monday in adults 18 to 49, scoring a 3.2, followed by CBS’s 9 p.m. entry, a repeat of the comedy “Two and a Half Men” (2.9).

The 9 p.m. time period premiere of NBC’s “Treasure Hunters” scored a 2.5 in the demo, down 11 percent from its special debut last Sunday. On ABC at 10 p.m., the third episode of the dating reality series “How to Get the Guy” hit a new series low of 1.5, declining 12 percent from its performance last week.
