FOX was #1 on Monday but CBS’ ‘Under The Dome’ was #1 program.



The Animal Network of Broadcast came in #1 on Monday evening as Jack was back with one week to go. At 8P, ‘MasterChef’ came in second in the time period with 5.7 million viewers. But it was at 9P, when the amazing ’24: Live Another Day’ brought in 6 million viewers and absolute fans to bring FOX victory. With one week to go, look for the finale to do big numbers next week as we see where Jack will take us next. Because there has to be a next for ’24’.



The Alphabet Network had the top show leading off the prime time period as at 8P, ‘The Bachelorette’ drew 6.83 million viewers. But at 10P, it was ‘Mistresses’ that brought the network down into second place as it could only pull in 3.75 million viewers.



The Tiffany Network began the evening with its usual rerun evening as at 8P, a rerun of ‘2 Broke Girls’ drew 4.72 million viewers and at 830P, a rerun of ‘Mom’ drew 4.53 million viewers to keep the network in the running. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Mike & Molly’ pulled the audience level up with 5.26 million viewers and at 930P, ‘Two and a Half Men’ drew 4.73 million viewers to set the stage for the big show of the evening on all of television. At 10P, ‘Under The Dome’ drew 7.71 million viewers which not only won the time period but won the Monday top program title.


American Ninja Warrior - Season 6

The Peacock Network simply was not competitive because it had no big program as compared to the other networks. At 8P where a rerun of ‘Last Comic Standing’ pulled in 4.04 million viewers. Then at 9P, ‘American Ninja Warriors’ drew 5.36 million viewers. It simply had nothing to get over the 6 million viewer level on Monday.


El número uno de nabla hispana, at 8P, ‘De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero’ drew an 0.9 A18-49 rating. At 9P, ‘Lo Que La Vida Me Robo’ moved up to fourth with 1.3 A18-49, tops for the night on the network. Then at 10P, ‘Que Pobres Tan Ricos’ drew a 1.1 A18-49 rating, good for third in the time slot.

The CW


The Little Network That Couldn’t tried like heck with reruns of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ at 8P drawing 1.45 million viewers and at 830P, drew 1.48 million viewers. But then at 9P, the season finale of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ died with only 876,000 viewers and doom the Little Network into obscurity once again. We can all hope but we can’t all succeed. Bring in new suits. Try something else.

Late Night

Conan A Hit In China

he American late-night talk show “Conan” has racked up more than 3 million hits since its debut on an online video site in China.
The comedy show hosted by Conan O’Brien and featuring celebrity interviews is available on the website of Sohu Video, a unit of Chinese online media group and Nasdaq-listed Inc., the company said Tuesday. It is accompanied with Chinese subtitles and, in less than two weeks, has received more than 3 million hits.

Like other Chinese online video sites, Sohu licenses many hit American TV shows, including the late-night U.S. comedy sketch show “Saturday Night Live” and Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. Online video isn’t as heavily regulated as television in China and so has more freedom to show dramas and comedies from the United States and other countries.
