“CSI: Miami” helped CBS claim Monday’s primetime ratings race in key categories, but Fox held tough with more good numbers from “24.”

According to preliminary nationals from Nielsen, “CSI: Miami” (6.5 rating/16 share in adults 18-49, 19.8 million viewers overall) stood as Monday’s top show, defeating ABC’s “The Bachelor: Paris” (3.9/10 in 18-49, 8.5 million viewers overall) and NBC’s repeat of “Medium” (2.5/6 in 18-49, 6.9 million viewers overall).

Fox’s “24” (5.7/13 in 18-49, 13.8 million viewers overall) ruled the 9 o’clock hour in key demos and for the season is up 17% in 18-49 and 15% in total viewers compared to the first six hours of a year ago. CBS laffer “Two and a Half Men” performed well with a repeat at 9 (5.0/11 in 18-49, 15.3 million viewers overall), and new entry “Courting Alex” (4.5/10 in 18-49, 13.5 million viewers overall) held onto about 90% of that lead-in. ABC was above average with its “In Style: Celebrity Weddings” spec (3.7/8 in 18-49, 8.7 million viewers overall), and NBC was a distant fourth with a repeat of “Las Vegas” (2.5/6 in 18-49, 7.7 million viewers overall).
