Broadcast TV Ratings for Monday, February 12, 2007

CBS, on the strength of its comedies and CSI: Miami (the nights highest rated show), took the top spot among households and total viewers, while Fox barely nudged ahead among the key adults 18-49 demographic.

CBS finished in first place for the evening with a 9.4/14 household rating and 14.60 million total viewers, but was second among adults 18-49 with a 4.9/12 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • 9.6/15 HH rating [#1]
    • 14.93M viewers [#1]
    • 5.0/12 A18-49 rating [#1]
  • 8:00 PM and 8:30 p.m.: How I Met Your Mother (6.3/10 HH rating, 9.81M viewers, 3.6/10 A18-49 rating) and The Class (5.9/9 HH rating, 8.97M viewers, 3.3/8 A18-49 rating) were down from last week’s episodes, which were apparently boosted by extra Super Bowl advertising.
    • Week-to-week numbers (How I Met Your Mother)
      • Households – 6.9/10 to 6.3/10
      • Viewers – 10.78M to 9.81M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.9/10 to 3.6/10
    • Week-to-week numbers (The Class)
      • Households – 6.2/9 to 5.9/9
      • Viewers – 9.72M to 8.97M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.6/9 to 3.3/8
  • 9:00 PM and 9:30 p.m.: Two and a Half Men (10.1/15 HH rating, 15.62M viewers, 4.9/11 A18-49 rating) was followed by week two of Rules of Engagement (8.7/13 HH rating, 13.50M viewers, 5.0/11 A18-49 rating). Well, this is an interesting situation. Two and a Half Men took a slight dip, but was still strong enough for a first place time-period finish among households and viewers. The interesting aspect for the hour was the great performance for week two freshman comedy Rules of Engagement. Though dipping some among households and viewers, it held very strong among adults 18-49 (down only 4%), as it improved the demo from its lead-in, very unexpected.
    • Week-to-week numbers (Two and a Half Men)
      • Households – 11.3/16 to 10.1/15
      • Viewers – 17.77M to 15.62M
      • Adults 18-49 – 5.8/13 to 4.9/11

      • Adults 18-49 – 5.2/12 to 5.0/11
  • 10:00 p.m.: CBS then ended the evening with a CSI: Miami (12.7/21 HH rating, 19.85M viewers, 6.4/16 A18-49 rating) which had no problem from its competition, to be the nights most watched and highest rated program across the three main categories.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 11.8/19 to 12.7/21
      • Viewers – 18.20M to 19.85M
      • Adults 18-49 – 5.7/14 to 6.4/16

      • Viewers – 17.33M to 16.06M

  • 9:00 p.m.: Heroes (8.7/13 HH rating, 14.68M viewers, 6.3/14 A18-49 rating) was mostly even from the week prior, though its reduced A18-49 meant it wasn’t the nights highest rated show in the demo (that honor went to CSI: Miami).

      • Households – 8.6/12 to 8.7/13
      • Viewers – 14.56M to 14.68M
      • A18-49 – 6.4/15 to 6.3/14

Dipping to below a 3.0 A18-49 for the first time in a long time. It’ll be interesting to see how The Black Donnelly’s performs in this timeslot a week from now.

      • Households – 4.6/7 to 4.3/7
      • Viewers – 7.18M to 6.56M
