Despite opposing still-hot rookie psychis drama “Medium” on NBC, CBS drama “CSI: Miami” ruled Monday’s final hour to clinch an across-the-board nightly ratings victory for the Eye net, according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen.

From 10 to 11, “CSI: Miami” (7.7 rating/18 share in adults 18-49, 21.7 million viewers overall) stood as the evening’s highest-rated show, defeating NBC’s “Medium” (5.8/14 in adults 18-49, 14.5 million viewers overall) and the premiere of ABC’s “Supernanny” (3.7/9 in adults 18-49, 10.0 million viewers overall). The Alphabet result was solid but underwhelming, while the Peacock’s “Medium” continues to look good, down just 10% from its big premiere average of two weeks earlier.

CBS was also typically strong from 9 to 10, winning both half-hour with “Everybody Loves Raymond” (6.4/14 in adults 18-49, 19.4 million viewers overall) and “Two and a Half Men” (6.1/13 in adults 18-49, 18.2 million viewers overall). But the net remains subpar from 8 to 9 with “Still Standing” (3.4/9 in adults 18-49, 11.2 million viewers overall) and “Listen Up” (3.2/7 in adults 18-49, 10.3 million viewers overall).

NBC won a crowded hour of unscripted programming at 8 with “Fear Factor” (4.7/12 in adults 18-49, 11.7 million viewers overall), topping ABC’s solid “How’d They Do That” (4.2/10 in adults 18-49, 10.8 million viewers overall) and Fox’s “Trading Spouses” (3.1/8 in adults 18-49, 7.6 million viewers overall).

And the 9 o’clock drama battle went to NBC’s “Las Vegas” (4.8/11 in adults 18-49, 12.5 million viewers overall) over Fox’s “24” (4.5/10 in adults 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall). The WB’s “Everwood” returned with an original episode at 9 that averaged a 1.4/3 in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: CBS, 5.7/13; NBC, 5.1/12; ABC, 3.9/9; Fox, 2.8/9; WB, 1.4/3; UPN, 1.3/3.

In total viewers: CBS, 17.1 million; NBC, 12.9 million; ABC, 9.7 million; Fox, 9.6 million; WB, 4.1 million; UPN, 3.0 million.
