This Monday, as Dancing with the Stars averaged 19.19 million total viewers and Fox's baseball coverage drew 9.6 mil:

8 pm/ET
NBC's Chuck placed second with 8.23 million, up 1.1 mil week-to-week, besting CBS' Mother (7.96 mil) and Big Bang Theory (8.15 mil), each of which slipped just a hair. The CW's Chris (2.57 mil) was on par with last week, while Aliens in America (2.23 mil) saw a slight gain.

9 pm
Samantha Who? helped ABC win the hour, hooking up with 14.9 million viewers in its debut. (That's better retention out of DWTS than The Bachelor was delivering.) CBS' Men (13.8 mil) rebounded from last week's dip with an 800K surge, while lead-out Rules of Engagement (11 mil) gained 300 thou. At 11.26 mil, Heroes was up a half mil (and again dominated the demos). Girlfriends (2.4 mil) and The Game (2.64 mil) showed little movement.

10 pm
CSI: Miami and Speedle's strange little "return" was watched by 15.4 mil, a 10 percent week-to-week increase. Bachelor trailed with 9.3 mil (down 600 thou). Journeyman ceased its decline and held steady with seven mil.
