Monday Cable Ratings : ‘The Closer‘ Grows & ‘Rizzoli & Isles Shrinks a Bit & Much More

On the heels of Kyra Sedgwick winning the best actress Emmy, The Closer saw a spike in viewers.  Unfortunately (at least as far as advertising revenue goes), they were all aged 50+ viewers.  The Closer added more than 550,000 total viewers to hit 7.6 million, a season high.  But the 1.4 adults 18-49 rating was unchanged from last week.

Meanwhile Rizzoli & Isles dropped a few hundred thousand viewers, and more importantly, 0.3 ratings points with adults 18-49  to 6.4 million and a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49. It was the first time in a while (perhaps all season) that Rizzoli & Isles had fewer 18-49 viewers than The Closer.    Rizzoli & Isles has already been renewed and these are still decent numbers (great numbers, with viewers) by cable standards.

No Emmy spike due to Kate Gosselin's appearance on the Emmy Awards.  Kate Plus 8 returned with numbers good by TLC standards perhaps, but tiny compared to Ms.  Gosselin's ratings heyday.
