MONDAY 2/9)

NOTE: A President Obama press conference will interfere with the previously scheduled programming.

  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Ben and Amy’s relationship hits a rough patch when Ben tells her he needs some space.” The pressure of buying a Valentine’s Day gift was just too much for him.
  • One Way Out (Discovery, 9pm):  “The host braves a high-speed barrage of tennis balls and steep plunges into kiddie pools before becoming the projectile in a human catapult.” Idiotic stunts have just become more financially appealing.
  • The Girls of Hedsor Hall (MTV, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In the opener, 12 rude and crude bad girls from the U.S. enroll in a British finishing school for a chance to transform their lives and win a $100,000 trust.” The goal? To become the next or Lily Allen.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Horatio believes that prominent defense attorney (Sean Combs) is involved in the cover-up of a murder.” Diddy doesn’t cover-up murders. That’s what his personal assistants are for.

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.

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.)

Monday Ratings: A Fiesta for FOX

Despite two new ABC premieres, the first Monday of 2009 wasn’t an accurate picture of the weeks to come. In addition to a slate of repeats on CBS, the Fiesta Bowl was on. In fact, it’s that football game that helped give FOX a win in both the viewers and demos yesterday.

  • The Bachelor (ABC, 8pm):  Season 13 premiere. “Single dad searches for a mate among 25 young women. In a new wrinkle, the bachelorettes get to vote for a competitor they’d like to see leave, but Jason has the final say.” Maybe the kid should have the final say.
