Oct 19 2010 12:33 pm CET
'Two and a Half Men' snatched top show honors from 'Dancing with the Stars' for the second week in a row. However, ABC managed to take the 18-49 and total viewers titles from CBS.
The TV Theme-themed episode of 'Dancing' was flat week-to-week, bringing in 19.29 million viewers and a 4.0 rating. 'Castle' also had a strong performance, bringing in 11.63 million viewers.
The comedy block on CBS did not experience much change in audience size, but all four shows dipped a bit in terms of ratings. 'How I Met Your Mother' had a change of -0.3, which was the biggest move of any show last night. 'Two and a Half Men' scored 4.3 with 13.39 million viewers. 'Hawaii Five-0' won the late hour with a 2.9 despite having a smaller audience than 'Castle'.
Fox did not show much change week-to-week. 'House' slipped to 3.5 (-0.1) while 'Lie to Me' rose to 2.0 (+0.1).
Finally, although NBC came in last, the Monday lineup appears to have leveled off. Both 'Chuck' and 'The Event' (picked up for a full season) were flat week-to-week. 'Chase' had a slight rise in both rating and audience: 5.17 million viewers and a 1.6 (+0.1).
