ABC won the night in both overall viewers and the 18-49 demographic with a three hour airing of A Raisin in the Sun. But since it's official that the 80th Annual Academy Awards were the least watched ever, I'm not sure another nightly victory will leave the Mouse stinging any less.
NBC can puff its feathers out about having the night's most watched program, Deal or No Deal which averaged over 15 million viewers in the overnights. My Dad is Better Than Your Dad and Medium both did about half as well as Deal.
CBS' Monday night combo of two hours of comedy plus CSI: Miami was in typical form, with Welcome to the Captain typically being unwelcome. Two and Half Men again cleared over 12 million viewers with a repeat and a strong, strong 3.9/10 in the demo. Have I mentioned lately that I think CBS should air more reruns of Two and a Half Men?
Things were calm at FOX, where Moment of Truth ran in Prison Break's 8pm slot. Moment did better than Prison Break, with 8.59 million, but not nearly as well as it was doing running behind American Idol.
One of my favorites Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles did so-so, and I say that only because it was beat-down by both the CBS comedies running from 9p-10p AND My Dad is Better Than Your Dad. Sarah Connor trailed My Dad in both total viewers and in the 18-49 demo. Nonetheless, I'll be watching the two-hour season finale of The Sarah Connor Chronicles next week and crossing my fingers that it's not the series finale.
