TV Ratings: Monday viewers disown 'Momma's Boys'
Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 22, 2008.
Monday night was short on new programming and what fresh shows there were -- NBC's "Momma's Boys" and FOX's "Prison Break" -- were dismissed by viewers.
CBS was content with its rerun performance, winning the coveted 18-49 demographic with a 2.4 rating. ABC was second in the demo with a 2.2 rating, followed by FOX's 2.0 and the 1.7 rating for NBC. The CW's 0.4 rating trailed.
Overall, CBS averaged nearly 8.4 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/9 share to beat the 4.0/6 for ABC. NBC and FOX posted the same 3.5/6 for third, while The CW stayed last with a 0.8/1.
CBS won all three primetime hours, starting at 8 p.m. with a 4.6/8 for "Big Bang Theory" and "How I Met Your Mother." A "Today Looks Back at 2008" special was second on the hour with a 4.0/7, edging ABC's "Shrek the Halls" and FOX's "House," which tied for third. The CW's "Gossip Girl" was fifth with a 0.9/2.
At 9 p.m. CBS's "Two and a Half Men" (7.4/12) and "Worst Week" (4.6/7) won the hour. The first part of ABC's broadcast of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was second. There was a third place tie between NBC's "Momma's Boys" and FOX's fall finale of "Prison Break" with a 3.2/5, though FOX beat NBC in viewers and 18-49 rating for the hour. "One Tree Hill" was fifth on The CW.
"CSI: Miami" gave CBS a 10 p.m. win with a 5.8/10. The second hour of ABC's movie followed with a 3.9/6 (and beat the CBS procedural in the key demo). NBC's "Momma's Boys" was last on the hour.
