On the broadcast networks, Gossip Girl's big 100th episode grew 23 percent from the previous week, grabbing the second-biggest audience of the season for The CW series, while Fox's Alcatraz followed up its Week 2 loss of 10 percent in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demo with a Week 3 loss that was the same, according to Nielsen overnights. House also declined 10 percent week to week.

Without the benefit of a debate among the Republican presidential candidates, Brian Williams' new newsmagazine Rock Center dropped some 50 percent from a week ago. And The Bachelor dipped about 4 percent from last week's season high. CBS yet again went with repeats — but Two and a Half Men still managed to attract the night's biggest audience.

The end of the month also marked a major milestone for Fox News — 10 years at No. 1 among cable news channels. Typically, it outdraws CNN and MSNBC combined in total viewership, Nielsen figures show. In the past month, Fox News ranked fifth among all basic cable networks, behind ESPN, USA, History and TBS.
