Monday's few ratings highlights:

" A Hell's Kitchen leftover (3.95 million total viewers) bested an Age of Love repeat (3.6 mil) to oh-so-proudly lay claim to third place in the reruns-filled 8 o'clock hour.

" At 9, a fresh Hell's Kitchen drew 7.88 mil, enjoying a week-to-week surge of 660,000. A new Age (4.75 mil), meanwhile, broke up with 700K more viewers. Holy crap, the "kittens" are boring.

" Extreme Makeover returned to a hair (plug) over six million viewers, a 2.5 mil improvement over time-slot predecessor Ex-Wives Club.
