'Two and a Half Men' Repeat Wins Slow Monday Among Big Four Networks

But Univision's Spanish-language novela "Soy Tu Duena" tops all broadcast programs.

CBS won a repeat-heavy Monday night propelled by its comedy lineup including Two and a Half Men.

The network was No. 1 among English-language broadcasters in both the adults 18-49 demographic and among total viewers, while Men (2.4 rating in the demo and 9.7 million viewers) was the top-rated English-language program of the night.

However, the finale of Spanish-language network Univision's Soy Tu Duena was Monday's most-watched broadcast program overall in the demo, pulling a 2.7 (though it trailed Men among total viewers, with 6.6 million). Among all broadcasters, Univision was No. 2 in the demo and third among total viewers.

CBS' lineup also included repeats of comedies How I Met Your Mother (1.9, 6.4 million), Rules of Engagement (1.7, 6 million) and Mike & Molly (2.0, 8.2 million) and procedural Hawaii Five-0 (1.7, 7.7 million).

Even with the snowstorm that has socked in the Northeast for the past two days, CBS' ratings were mostly on par with the previous week.

It's impossible to make apples-to-apples comparisons for ABC, Fox and NBC because of the differences in their lineups from last week, which featured originals.

ABC, which had the Johnny Depp theatrical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1.7, 5.5 million) and a Castle repeat (1.5, 5.7 million), was No. 2 on the night in both the demo and total viewers among the English-language networks. (The network's fast national numbers are slightly inflated because of a pre-emption in Atlanta for the Monday Night Football matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons.)

In third place was Fox, which aired repeats of House (1.2, 4 million) and Lie to Me (0.8, 2.9 million).

NBC aired a mini-Chuck marathon of three repeat episodes at 8 p.m. (0.8, 3.3 million), 9 p.m. (0.7, 2.6 million) and 10 p.m. (0.8, 2.3 million).

CW had 90210 (0.4, 1 million) and Gossip Girl (0.3, 762,000), both on par with last week.
