Reruns Power CBS Monday

Fast National ratings for Monday, March 27, 2006

Despite airing repeats for most of the night, CBS still scored an overall ratings win Monday. FOX took the crown among younger viewers, and "Everwood" ended its long absence from The WB with okay, but not overwhelming, numbers.

CBS averaged an 8.3 rating/13 share for the night to beat out FOX's 7.3/11. NBC, 6.8/10, came in third. ABC wasn't far behind in fourth at 6.2/9. The WB, 2.3/3, edged UPN, 2.2/3, for fifth.

FOX scored a victory among adults 18-49 with a 5.2 rating. CBS was second in the advertisers' favorite demographic with a 4.0, and ABC and NBC tied for third at 3.8. UPN's 1.4 narrowly beat The WB's 1.3.

"Deal or No Deal," 9.5/14, dominated the 8 p.m. hour for NBC. ABC's "Wife Swap," 6.2/9, was second in households, though "Prison Break," 6.1/9, brought more total viewers to FOX. CBS was fourth with repeats of "The King of Queens" and "How I Met Your Mother." In its first episode since December, "Everwood" posted a 2.3/3 for The WB. UPN trailed with "One on One" and "All of Us."

At 9 p.m., a "Two and a Half Men" repeat, 9.1/13, and "The New Adventures of Old Christine," 8.1/12, gave CBS the top spot among households. FOX's "24" (8.5/12), however, topped the hour in viewers and adults 18-49. "The Apprentice" delivered a 6.6/10 for NBC, tying with ABC's "Supernanny." UPN's "Girlfriends" and "Half & Half" finished in a virtual tie with a second episode of "Everwood."

A "CSI: Miami" rerun, 10.9/18, brought CBS the night's biggest audience at 10 p.m. "Miracle Workers" averaged 6.0/10 for ABC. NBC repeated the "Heist" premiere and drew a 4.2/7.
