TV Ratings: CBS snatches demo title from ABC Monday

Fast National ratings for Monday, April 13, 2009

ABC and "Dancing with the Stars" kept the overall ratings lead Monday, but CBS grabbed the top spot in the key adults 18-49 demographic.

ABC's 9.0 rating/14 share led the night, beating out CBS' 7.4/12. FOX was not far behind in third at 6.9/10. NBC came in fourth at 4.2/7, while a night of reruns on The CW drew only a 0.7/1.

In the adults 18-49 demo, CBS' 4.1 rating edged out FOX's 4.0 for first place. ABC finished third with a 3.4. NBC's 2.7 took fourth, and The CW was way off the pace with a 0.4.

"Dancing with the Stars" earned an 11.9/18 for ABC at 8 p.m. "House," 7.2/11, put FOX in second, in front of "The Big Bang Theory," 6.1/10, and "How I Met Your Mother," 5.7/9, on CBS. "Chuck" delivered a 3.7/6 for NBC. The CW aired a "Gossip Girl" rerun.

ABC stayed on top at 9 with the conclusion of "Dancing with the Stars," 13.0/19, and "Surviving Suburbia" (6.9/10), which fell some from its premiere last week. CBS moved to the front of the demo pack with "Two and a Half Men," 8.8/13, and "Rules of Engagement," 7.0/11. FOX's "24," 6.5/10, snagged third. "Heroes" scored a 4.1/6 for NBC, improving in its second half-hour after "Dancing" ended. A "One Tree Hill" encore ran on The CW.

"CSI: Miami," 8.5/14, gave CBS the lead at 10. ABC's "Castle" hit its lowest ratings yet with a 5.1/8, but that was good enough to edge NBC's "Medium," 4.9/8, for second.
