Mar 01 2011 12:22 pm CET
CBS is starting to feel the pinch of Two and a Half Men repeats, finishing in third behind ABC and Fox. House was the top show for 18-49 while Mike & Molly was the most watched new program of the night.
ABC took first place. Though it included the casting announcement for Dancing with the Stars in its second hour, The Bachelor averaged a 3.4, flat with last week's outing. Castle improved, scoring a 2.8 (+0.2) with over a million more viewers than last week.
House led Fox to second place. The drama scored a 3.8 (+0.3) in the early hour. The Chicago Code was flat with a 2.1 but its audience has increased slightly over the last two weeks.
The comedies on CBS had mixed results, causing the network to slip to third. Both How I Met Your Mother (3.4) and Mad Love (2.7) dipped by 0.1, though audience sizes were constant. Two and a Half Men was the most watched program of the night, despite being a repeat. This helped Mike & Molly, which rose to a 3.4 (+0.2).
NBC finished behind Univision. Chuck stayed at 1.7 for the fifth week in a row. The Cape sunk to a new low of 1.1 (-0.1). Harry's Law, facing only a new episode of Castle, rose to a 1.8 (+0.1) and back over the 9 million viewer mark.
On the CW, 90210 was flat at 0.7 while Gossip Girl slipped to a 0.7 (-0.1).
