TV ratings: 'Terra Nova' holds steady Monday, 'Two and a Half Men' dips, 'House' premiere OK
Ratings for "Two and a Half Men" declined a little more on Monday, but it was still the night's most-watched show. "House's" season premiere was down a bit from last season but up over its performance last spring, and "Terra Nova" held very steady in its second week on FOX.
Elsewhere, "The Sing-Off" perked up a little for NBC, although that improvement didn't translate to "The Playboy Club," and The CW's "Gossip Girl" and "Hart of Dixie" were fairly even with last week.
ABC led the night in total viewers, drawing 14.9 million people and a 9.7 rating/15 share in households. CBS (12.4 million, 7.6/11) took second, finishing comfortably ahead of FOX (9 million, 5.4/8). NBC averaged 4.4 million viewers and a 2.7/4 to finish fourth, while The CW came in at 1.6 million viewers and a 1.1/2.
Paced by "Two and a Half Men," CBS finished first among adults 18-49 with a 4.3 rating. FOX came in second in the demographic with a 3.4, followed by ABC at 2.9. NBC's 1.6 was good for fourth. The CW earned a 0.7.
