Monday still in Eye’s corner

Morning Ratings Flash - Rick Kissell

CBS captured another Monday in key ratings categories, closing out the evening strong behind “CSI: Miami” and comedies “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Two and a Half Men,” according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen.

“CSI: Miami” was the night’s top-rated program (6.7 rating/17 share in adults 18-49, 19.7 million viewers overall), winning the 10 o’clock hour over NBC’s solid “Medium” (4.8/12 in 18-49, 12.8 million viewers overall) and ABC’s weak special “Extreme Makeover: Wedding Edition” (2.2/5 in 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall).

CBS also rolled from 9 to 10 with “Everybody Loves Raymond” (5.9/15 in 18-49, 19.4 million viewers overall) and “Two and a Half Men” (5.7/14 in 18-49, 17.7 million viewers overall). Fox’s “24” remained a steady second (4.7/12 in 18-49, 10.8 million viewers overall), followed by NBC’s “Las Vegas” (4.0/10 in 18-49, 10.9 million viewers overall) and ABC’s “The Bachelor” (2.9/7 in 18-49, 7.1 million viewers overall).

NBC led in demos during the night’s opening hour with “Fear Factor” (3.5/10 in 18-49, 8.4 million viewers overall) although the former unscripted heavyweight is clearly tiring. CBS ran second from 8 to 9 in demos and first in total viewers with a special “King of Queens” (2.8/9 in 18-49, 9.9 million viewers overall) and a repeat “Everybody Loves Raymond” (3.7/10 in 18-49, 12.3 million viewers overall).

Preliminary adults 18-49 averages for the night: CBS, 5.3/14; NBC, 4.1/11; Fox, 3.8/10; ABC, 2.4/6; WB, 1.6/4; UPN, 1.4/4.

In total viewers: CBS, 16.5 million; NBC, 10.7m; Fox, 9.2m; ABC, 6.4m; WB, 4.5m; UPN, 3.2m.
