Miss Universe Ratings Are Pretty All Right... Pretty Bad

With a lineup of wall-to-wall reruns Monday night, CBS still came out on top, which was especially bad news for the Miss Universe pageant. With an audience of 7.1 million, it pulled its lowest numbers in more than a decade in the demo and it performed worse than it ever had in overall viewership. Ouch. (By comparison, Two and a Half Men, the night's No. 1 show, had an audience of 10.6 million.) Guess now that starlets go out pantyless, a swimsuit competition just isn't the draw that it used to be.
