FOX's Gordon Ramsay double-dose of "Hell's Kitchen" and "MasterChef" easily won Monday night among young viewers and capitalized on apathy for ABC's "The Glass House" to win Monday's overall race (with an asterisk).

Overall, FOX averaged an estimated 6.27 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/6 share for Monday primetime, topping ABC's 5.65 million viewers and 3.9/6. [Of course, ABC won both of the two hours it went head-to-head with FOX, so take the FOX win with a grain of salt.] CBS was third with a 3.3/6 and 4.87 million viewers, topping NBC's 2.2/4 and 3.76 million viewers. The CW averaged a 0.5/1 and 708,000 viewers.
