Monday Ratings: ABC Wilts Next to CBS Repeats

Reality hit ABC’s reality programs yesterday evening. Without the help of Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelorette was just another dating show. CBS’ repeat-filled lineup was actually the victor in both the viewers and the demos last night.

Monday Ratings: ABC is a Thorn in CBS’ Side

A mere 20,000 viewers. That was the only thing keeping CBS from winning both the viewers and the demos last night. ABC’s reality block - with its 12.18 million average - barely managed to squeak past the Eye and its 12.16 million followers.

Monday Ratings: FOX Ekes Past CBS

Monday night saw a heated competition between three different networks. Although ABC was a winner with the viewers, FOX (3.9/11) won a hard-fought battle in the demos over CBS (3.9/10). (ABC and its 3.6/10 wasn’t that far behind.)

Monday Ratings: Lackluster Finales for Heroes, Chuck

If there ever was a time for fans to come out and support Chuck, it would have been last night. Unfortunately, the numbers for both NBC finales were basically flat from last week. (At least the network has already declared that Heroes will get a return.) Meanwhile, FOX beat out CBS in a tight race for the demos while ABC was in first with the viewers.

Monday Ratings: Bones is No House

Attempts to give Bones more attention didn’t do much for either the show or the network. Despite decreased competition from CBS, the program pulled in smaller numbers than the normal slot holder. The series also declined from its last Thursday outing.

Monday Ratings: NBC Actually Improves

Yes, yes - you heard me right: NBC showed signs of life yesterday. But let’s not get too excited now. It’s not like the network won anything. (The Peacock was still in fourth place.) It just didn’t suck as badly as it has been.

Monday Ratings: Suburbia Survives the Evening

Yesterday’s premiere of Surviving Suburbia did well despite NCAA competition. The program had the best numbers for a comedy debut since the opener of Samantha Who? in October 2007. (A Dancing with the Stars lead-in being the common denominator.)

Monday Ratings: FOX and ABC Divide the Night

Despite all the 10’s issued on Dancing with the Stars last night, ABC narrowly lost the demos to FOX yesterday. Hot ballroom action did stir up the evening’s biggest audience though.

Monday Ratings: New Lows for Heroes, Medium

If you thought a repeat of Two and a Half Men might help Heroes’ chances, you were wrong. Last night, the wilting NBC program once again saw its smallest audience to date. That poor performance led into a series low for Medium as well.

Medium's Patricia Arquette8pm

  • (20.2 million, 4.9/13 in 18-49) stumbled by 900,000.
  • * (7.7 million, 2.6/7) sent 5.1 million home.
  • A original (7.4 million, 2.9/8) didn’t do as well as The Big Bang Theory; a HIMYM repeat (2.6/7) turned in 6.9 million.
  • (2.1/6) registered 6.1 million.
  • (2.2 million, 1.0/3) remained steady.
