A few Monday ratings bits:

" In the 8 o'clock hour, a hair under five million people welcomed Victoria Beckham to America, giving NBC a virtual tie for second in total viewers and the top spot in the 18-to-49 demo. It also marked a 47 percent improvement over whatever the Peacock ran in the time slot a year ago.

" Hell's Kitchen dominated at 9, gaining 870,000 week-to-week to serve up a season high of 8.2 million (even besting CBS' Two and a Half Men).

" Extreme Makeover (4.96 mil) and Age of Love (4.54 mil) delivered typical numbers.
