CBS, FOX Share Monday Spoils

Networks finish in near-tie; Stanley Cup up on NBC

Fast National ratings for Monday, June 2, 2008

FOX and CBS waged a close ratings race Monday night, with each network claiming a piece of the title with their rerun lineups.

CBS led the night in households with a 5.3 rating/9 share, ahead of FOX's 5.2/9. However, FOX had a few more total viewers (8.05 million to CBS' 7.91 million). ABC, 4.2/7, came in third, a little ahead of NBC (3.6/6), whose numbers may change some because it had live sports coverage all night. The CW brought up the rear at 0.9/1.

The adults 18-49 demographic was similarly tight, with CBS and NBC tying for the lead at 2.5. FOX was right behind at 2.4, and ABC came in at 2.1. The CW fell below the 1.0 line.

A "Bones" repeat, 4.5/8, put FOX on top at 8 p.m. "The Bachelorette," 4.3/7, gave ABC second in households, although CBS had more viewers with "The Big Bang Theory" and "How I Met Your Mother," which averaged 4.0/7. Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on NBC came in fourth. "Gossip Girl" posted a 1.0/2 for The CW.

FOX stayed in front at 9 p.m. with "House," 6.0/9. CBS was right behind with "Two and a Half Men," 6.5/10, and "Rules of Engagement," 5.3/8. "The Bachelorette" improved to 5.0/8 in its second hour. The Pittsburgh Penguins-Detroit Red Wings matchup on NBC earned a 3.5/5. A "One Tree Hill" rerun closed the night for The CW.

At 10 p.m. "CSI: Miami" (6.0/10) gave CBS the top spot. The Stanley Cup game rose to 4.1/7 for NBC, its best numbers in a couple years. The return of "The Mole" to ABC brought in a 3.4/6.

  • David Boreanaz at NHL Game 5 June 2, 2008

    First time reader, Kimba, found this humble blog by Googling David Boreanaz and Hockey. Her comment got me into search mode and I found this on his NHL profile. It's an audio clip of David speaking with Brad Holland of NHL.com just prior to Game 5 at the Joe Lewis Arena, last night. Great little clip and great news that he'll be blogging again next season! Click here to listen.

    The media is still talking Bones and that's a great thing! This time, Bones appears on the list of TV's biggest battles for the fall.

    Wednesday: Bones vs. Pushing Daisies
    Booth and Brennan land another new spot on Fox's schedule, this time against the popular (but barely seen thanks to the writers' strike) Pushing Daisies. Will the Gormogon twist and new timeslot cost Bones viewers?

    I actually love Pushing Daisies, but I can watch it online the next day! Bones wins it for me hands down.
