Two and a Half Men
Monday's ratings in review:
Charlie Brown and his scrawny tree topped the hour with 11.37 million total viewers. Combining for second, CBS' Big Bang Theory hit yet another (!) all-time high — 10.8 mil, up 600K from its last fresh outing — and Mother (10.49 mil, +450K) delivered its biggest audience since Britney circa March 24.
Opposite a fuller slate, Chuck (6.93 mil) dipped 320 thou and Sarah Connor (5.2 mil) dropped 11 percent. Gossip Girl (3.01 mil) slipped a hair.
CBS comedies ruled, with Men (15.65 million viewers) enjoying its best numbers since February and Worst Week (10.6 mil) gathering its largest audience since its premiere. Boston Legal placed second, averaging 10.2 mil over its two-hour swan song — a 21 percent surge from its previous episode.
Heroes (7.78 mil, -220K), Prison Break (5.39 mil, -410K) and Privileged (1.9 mil, 0300K) all dropped, though the CW charmer matched its best numbers in target demos.
CSI: Miami dominated with 13.6 million viewers, down 500K. Lagging behind Boston, My Own Worst Enemy (3.96 mil) continued its lame-duck decline.
