No demos or averages or shares here! We’re talking ratings in language you can understand. Here’s how last night’s numbers broke down...
CSI Miami: 17.5 million viewers. Staying strong for CBS, the heat is still kickin’ in Miami.
Two and a Half Men: 15.1 million viewers. Down more than a million viewers this week, but still the second most watched show on Monday night.
Heroes: 14.3 million viewers. Last night was Heroes' highest rated episode ever in the all-important 18-49 age group! NBC president Kevin Reilly is kissing the ground they walk on right about now.
How I Met Your Mother: 9.8 million viewers. A good, solid number and up from last week.
Prison Break: 8.5 million viewers. Maybe no one knew it was a new ep, ‘cause this is not a great number for our favorite fugitives.
The Bachelor: 8.2 million viewers. Lost almost 2 million peeps from last week.
The Class: 8.1 million viewers. Slipping slightly, week to week.
Everybody Hates Chris: 3.2 million viewers. Gained a couple hundred thousand fans last night.
Studio 60: 7.7 million viewers. It didn’t get beat by Brian this week but still isn’t drawing the audience it should.
What About Brian: 6 million viewers. Sadly, it has slipped back down to its premiere-week numbers, which isn’t a good sign. source
