CBS dominates Monday night ratings

'Big Bang,' 'Two and a Half Men' rule evening

CBS' Monday lineup showed its resilience by dominating a rerun-filled night.

Repeats of CBS' flagship comedies "The Big Bang Theory" (3.0 rating/8 share in adults 18-49) and "Two and a Half Men" (2.7/7) were the highest-rated programs of the night by a mile, with a rerun of another CBS series, drama "CSI: Miami" (2.2/6) coming in third.

The only other program to cross the 2.0 demo rating mark Monday was ABC's broadcast of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" (2.1/6), though that number is expected to go down in the finals as ABC's preliminary ratings were inflated by NFL pre-emptions in Chicago and Minnesota.
