CBS’ all-rerun lineup dominated every hour last night against mostly original competition. A repeat of rookie 2 Broke Girls (3.3/8, 9.2 million) was the top program of the night in adults 18-49, while an encore Two And A Half Men (3.1/7, 9.7 million) was the most watched. Reruns of How I Met Your Mother (2.9/8, 8 million) and Mike & Molly (2.7/6, 8.5 million) finished No. 3 in 18-49 and total viewers, respectively, and a Hawaii Five-0 repeat (2.1/5, 7.9 million) was fourth in viewers. For the night, CBS averaged a 2.7/7 in 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers.
Fox’s dramas didn’t get a major boost from airing against reruns on CBS and no Dancing With The Stars on ABC. Original Terra Nova (2.2/6, 7.2 million) was up only a tenth in 18-49 from last week (up 11% in total viewers). It finished third in the 8 PM hour behind the CBS comedy repeats and ABC’s holiday special reruns, How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2.5/7, 7.7 million, up 14% in 18-49 from last year) and Shrek The Halls (2.6/6, up 8%, 7.7 million). At 9 PM, House (2.6/6, 7.3 million) too was up a tenth in the demo. Fox (2.4/6, 7.3 million) was second for the night in 18-49 and total viewers. ABC’s new game show You Deserve It (1.4/3) tumbled 18% from its soft premiere last week, while Castle (1.3/3) was a repeat. NBC’s The Sing-Off finale (1.7/4) posted its highest rating in almost two months but was down 37% from last year’s finale. Rock Center With Brian Williams (1.2/3) perked up, jumping 33% from last week’s series low. The CW’s Hart Of Dixie (1.9 million, 1.0/3 in 18-34, 0.8/2 in 18-49) hit a series high in 18-34 and matched its series high in 18-49.
