CBS finished in third place for the evening with a 6.3/9 household rating, 9.80 million total viewers and a 3.2/7 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • 8.3/12 HH rating [#2]
    • 12.49M viewers [#2]
    • 4.2/10 A18-49 rating [#2]
  • 8:00 PM and 8:30 PM: CBS began the evening with a repeat of How I Met Your Mother (4.7/7 HH rating, 7.18M viewers, 2.5/6 A18-49 rating) followed by a new The Class (4.5/6 HH rating, 7.07M viewers, 2.7/6 A18-49 rating). The numbers for The Class speak for themselves. Not only was the show down week-to-week (.69M viewers, 12% among households and 7% among adults 18-49), but it was outperformed by a repeat of its normal lead-in in every category except adults 18-49. Not good for the show’s future.
    • Week-to-week numbers (8:30 p.m. — The Class):
      • Households – 5.1/7 to 4.5/6
      • Viewers – 7.76M to 7.07M
      • A18-49 – 2.9/7 to 2.7/6
  • 9:00 PM and 9:30 PM: A repeat of Two and a Half Men (7.2/10 HH rating, 11.27M viewers, 3.5/8 A18-49 rating) was followed by a new The New Adventures of Old Christine (6.2/9 HH rating, 9.56M viewers, 3.2/7 A18-49 rating). As with The Class above, ‘Old Christine’ also struggled out of its encore lead-in, falling 2.59M viewers, 23% among households and 22% among adults 18-49 from the week prior. But retention was on par with its usual performance out of new episodes of Two and a Half Men so that’s a positive.
    • Week-to-week numbers (The New Adventures of Old Christine):
      • Households – 8.1/12 to 6.2/9
      • Viewers – 12.15M to 9.56M
      • A18-49 – 4.1/9 to 3.2/7
  • 10:00 PM: CBS then ended the evening with a repeat of CSI: Miami (7.7/12 HH rating, 11.86M viewers, 3.5/9 A18-49 rating) which was the Eye’s most watched and highest rated program of the night. Among adults 18-49, it was tied for second for the network with Two and a Half Men.

ABC followed in fourth place for the evening with a 4.9/7 household rating, 7.39 million total viewers and a 3.3/8 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • 4.7/7 HH rating [#4]
    • 6.95M viewers [#4]
    • 2.8/7 A18-49 rating [#3]
  • 8:00 PM: Given the increased competition for the evening, the performance of Wife Swap (5.4/8 HH rating, 8.46M viewers, 3.7/9 A18-49 rating) is noteworthy, as it increased across the board from last week’s episode. It was up .47M viewers, 6% among households and most impressively 12% among adults 18-49. A solid performance.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 5.1/7 to 5.4/8
      • Viewers – 7.99M to 8.46M
      • A18-49 – 3.3/8 to 3.7/9
  • 9:00 PM: The same can be said for Supernanny (5.8/8 HH rating, 8.96M viewers, 3.9/9 A18-49 rating) which also increased from the week prior and managed to build in every category from its lead-in.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 5.5/8 to 5.8/8
      • Viewers – 8.12M to 8.96M
      • A18-49 – 3.2/7 to 3.9/9
  • 10:00 PM: Unfortunately, the good news for ABC ended there as a new What About Brian (3.4/5 HH rating, 4.75M viewers, 2.0/5 A18-49 rating) struggled yet again, staying relatively flat from the week prior. Retention out of its lead-in was very weak at 59% among households, 53% among viewers and only 51% among adults 18-49.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 3.4/5 to 3.4/5
      • Viewers – 4.74M to 4.75M
      • A18-49 – 2.0/5 to 2.2/5

    The CW was left for a fifth place finish with a 1.2/2 household rating, 1.77 million total viewers and a 0.8/2 rating among adults 18-49.

    • Last Week:
      • 1.4/2 HH rating [#5]
      • 2.05M viewers [#5]
      • 0.8/2 A18-49 rating [#5]
    • 8:00 and 8:30 PM: Repeats of “Everybody Hates Chris” (1.5/2 HH rating, 2.19M viewers, 1.0/2 A18-49 rating) and “All of Us” (1.2/2 HH rating, 1.75M viewers, 0.8/2 A18-49 rating) were hardly noticeable.
    • 9:00 and 9:30 PM: And repeats of “Girlfriends” (1.1/2 HH rating, 1.61M viewers, 0.7/2 A18-49 rating) and “The Game” (1.1/2 HH rating, 1.55M viewers, 0.8/2 A18-49 rating) fell even lower.
