Another Monday means another first place finish for the always reliable CBS network.

CBS finished in first place for the evening with a 5.2/9 household rating and 7.67 million viewers, but was slightly back in second place among adults 18-49 with a 2.3/7 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • 4.8/8 HH rating [#2]
    • 7.21M viewers [#2]
    • 2.2/7 A18-49 rating [#3]

Significant to note here is that CBS has pulled the comedy Creature Comforts.

Two and a Half Men held off all competition, as it was the evening’s top-rated and most-watched show, even out-rating a new episode of Hell’s Kitchen in terms of households and viewers.
  • 10:00 p.m.: And lastly, a repeat of CSI: Miami (6.2/11 HH rating, 8.95M viewers, 2.6/8 A18-49 rating).

FOX followed tied for second place on the evening among households with a 3.5/6 rating, but was alone in second among viewers with 5.56 million and among adults 18-49 with a 2.8/8 rating.

      • Households – 4.4/7 to 4.4/7
      • Viewers – 7.57M to 7.22M

  • Last Week:
    • 7.0/12 HH rating [#1]
    • 10.36M viewers [#1]
    • 3.2/9 A18-49 rating [#1]

      • Households – 7.8/14
      • Viewers – 12.06M

  • 9:00 p.m.: A new episode of Age of Love (3.9/6 HH rating, 5.54M viewers, 2.3/6 A18-49 rating) wasn’t able to grow any from the week prior. One positive worth noting was that even without its huge lead-in support from last week, Age of Love didn’t slide too significantly among adults 18-49 (only 8%).

GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “Two and a Half Men-REPEAT” will be reported in next weeks report for Monday, July 2, 2007.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
