Primetime Ratings: Extra '2 Broke Girls' Helps CBS Win Monday

Fox's American Country Awards down from last year

CBS was able to win its first Monday this season with an overall 3.3 rating/8
share with adults 18-49, according to Nielsen overnight numbers. How I Met
Your Mother
was up two tenths to a 3.3, while 2 Broke Girls benefited
from a Big Bang Theory repeat (which drew a 3.3) to improve 14% to a
4.0. Another new 2 Broke Girls at 9:30 p.m. was down a tenth to a 3.9.
At 10 p.m., Hawaii Five-0 was up 17% to a new season-high 2.7 rating.

NBC finished second with a 2.5/6. The net's week-long game show
Take It All performed solid in its debut with a 2.2 airing out of The
, which was down a
tenth from last week's two-hour telecast to a 3.8. The holiday special Michael
Buble: Home for the Holidays
drew a 1.4 at 10 p.m., on par with last year's
Buble special (1.5).

Fox edged out ABC for third with a 1.4/4, airing the
American Country Awards, which were down 30% from last year's telecast.

ABC ended up with a 1.4/3. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's
back-to-back episodes were up 44% to a 1.3 at 8 p.m. and up 50% to a 1.5 and 9
p.m. It should be noted that ABC aired NFL football in Boston, so ratings may
be inflated some.

Gossip Girl's penultimate episode drew season highs,
rising two tenths with both 18-49s (0.5) and 18-34s (0.7). 90210 was up
a tenth with 18-49s to a 0.6 and up two tenths with 18-34s to a 0.7. The CW
finished with a 0.5/1.
