Broadcast TV Ratings for Monday, February 18, 2008

A two-hour edition of Deal or No Deal, the nights most-watched program, powered NBC to a win on Monday night among households, viewers and adults 18-49. The series premiere of My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad drew only so-so numbers, as the program managed to only hold 58% of its lead-in’s audience. It’s performance among adults 18-49 was a little better (67%), but still not great.

Elsewhere on the evening, CBS got solid results from a mostly repeat filled lineup, finishing in second place for the evening among total audience. Welcome to the Captain and The New Adventures of Old Christine were the only new programs CBS aired, with the former being the only poor performer. In its third week on the air, the series posted series lows. The show is off by 2.46M viewers (31%), 33% among households and 23% among adults 18-49 from its series premiere.  Enjoy it while it lasts, because it’s highly doubtful it’ll be around past this season.

Fox got a solid second place finish for the evening among adults 18-49 thanks to the season three finale of Prison Break and an original episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which continues to rate well among the coveted A18-49 demographic, despite not being a heavily viewed program.

ABC trailed with an okay performance out of the season finale of Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, and another poor outing from October Road, while The CW’s new season of The Pussycat Dolls Present, got off to a very, very poor start. Compared to last season’s premiere, the show declined by 2.16M, or (55%) among viewers, 46% among households and 47% among adults 18-49.

Ouch.

Ratings for the entire night follow after the jump.

NBC finished in first place for the evening with a 7.0/11 household rating/share, 11.71 million viewers and a 3.8/10 rating/share among adults 18-49.
