Monday Ratings: DWTS Has Best Premiere Yet

Jewel and Nancy O’Dell’s loss was Dancing with the Stars’ gain. Despite being in its 8th season, the program saw its largest premiere audience to date. (I think we can safely attribute that to the Melissa Rycroft factor.) The reality show’s return easily gave ABC wins in both the viewers and the demos last night.

Monday Ratings: Rosy Evening for ABC

Jason Mesnick’s shocking reveal might not have done much for his reputation, but it did plenty for ABC. Yesterday’s Bachelor episode saw its largest audience since 2003 (when Bob Guiney picked Estella Gardinier). The finale - coupled with the post-show special - also led ABC to an easy win last night.

Monday Ratings: Heroes Can’t Rescue NBC

CBS’ repeat-filled lineup gave NBC a chance to pick up some ground yesterday. Unfortunately, the Peacock squandered its opportunity and sunk even further last night. FOX, in the meantime, seized the evening and placed first in both the viewers and the demos.

Monday Ratings: A New Low for Chuck

Chuck‘s post-Super Bowl boost disappeared in just a matter of weeks. Back on February 2nd, the show had its largest audience of the season. Yesterday, the program hit a series low. The Bachelor, in the meantime, hit another season high last night.

Monday Ratings: Obama Rules Over Primetime

As depressing as economy talk might be, President Obama had people listening. Last night’s news conference raked in approximately 49.5 million over eight networks. While it was clearly the biggest event of the evening, the presidential presser paled in comparison to Bill Clinton’s first newser in February 1993. (That primetime event drew in 64.3 million.) Although its news coverage came in second, CBS ended up winning the night in both categories.

President Barack Obama8pm

  • ‘s coverage of the Obama presser (3.1/8 in 18-49) pulled in 11.49 million.
  • Approximately 9.78 million watched the conference on (3.0/8).

  • attracted 5.9 million (2.2/6) for the newser.
  • * (1.7 million, 0.8/2) was down 600,000.

Monday Ratings: NBC Improves, But Not By Much

Sunday’s commercials may have paid off financially for NBC, but they didn’t help much with the ratings. Despite endless ads for Monday’s programs, the lineup only showed marginal improvement. By night’s end, CBS was on top with the viewers while FOX was first place in the demos.

Description8pm

  • (14.8 million, 5.5/13 in 18-49) had Monday’s best demos.
  • (11 million, 4.1/10) wooed another 400,000.

Monday Ratings: The Bachelor Keeps Getting Hotter

Was it the CBS repeats? Or was it the sight of Jason Mesnick in scrubs? Whatever the reason, The Bachelor continued to pick up steam and reached a new high last night. Meanwhile, House - and FOX - had an easy night with the viewers and the demos.

Monday Ratings: House Stops CBS’ Dominance

A change of night didn’t keep viewers from getting their House fix. The show’s move to Monday not only weakened CBS’ comedy stronghold, it provided a nice lead-in for 24. The drama combo then gave FOX wins in both the viewers and the demos.

Monday Ratings: 24 Holds Its Ground

Monday night was alright for Jack Bauer. Day 2 of the 24‘s two-part premiere did just as well as Day 1. The good news? The return of House will provide the series a nice lead-in next week. The bad news? The show will then go up directly against Two and a Half Men. (CBS’ strong lineup was the winner last night in both categories.)
