An original episode of "CSI: Miami" and decent showings by its comedy repeats gave CBS a ratings win Monday.

CBS averaged a 7.1 rating/11 share for the night to beat the competition by a fair margin. The rest of the big three were tightly bunched, with NBC's 4.6/7 coming in second ahead of ABC, 4.3/7, and FOX, 4.2/7 (FOX had slightly more total viewers than ABC). The CW trailed with a 1.1/2.

In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS' 3.3 rating led the way. ABC finished second at 2.3, while NBC and FOX tied at 2.1. The CW managed only a 0.6.

FOX led at 8 p.m. with a "House" repeat, 5.0/8. The premieres of ABC's game show "Duel" and NBC's "Clash of the Choirs" also came in at 5.0/8 but trailed FOX in total viewers. CBS was fourth with repeats of "How I Met Your Mother," 4.4/7, and "The Big Bang Theory," 4.5/7. The CW went with repeats of "Everybody Hates Chris" and "Aliens in America."

A pair of "Two and a Half Men" reruns averaged 7.4/11 for CBS at 9 p.m. NBC took over second as "Clash of the Choirs" improved to 5.7/9. The conclusion of "Duel" and "Notes from the Underbelly" kept ABC in third, ahead of the "K-Ville" season finale, 3.5/5, on FOX. "Girlfriends" and "The Game" combined for a 1.1/2 on The CW.

"CSI: Miami" dominated at 10 p.m., posting a 9.5/16. ABC's "October Road" finished second at 3.8/6, while "Journeyman" drew a 3.1/5 for NBC.
