So what have we learned so far today?
Ashton Kutcher knocks Two and a Half Men out of the park. And unfortunately for Amber Heard, The Playboy Club left audiences limp.
But what about the other guys, huh?
2 Broke Girls debuted rather nicely with a 7.0 in adults (18-49). Impressive!
How I Met Your Mother beat itself by 30% this year with a 4.7 in adults (18-49). Good news for an older show.
Unfortunately, Dancing With The Stars dropped 24% from last year's premiere with a 3.9 rating. Guess a lot of bigots watched the show before! That or people want something bigger, like Skydiving With the Stars.
Castle enjoyed a successful victory with itself, raising their bar by 33% and coming in at a 3.3.
And just like The Playboy Club, NBC's other shows, The Sing-Off and Hell's Kitchen performed horribly. The Sing-Off didn't even make a 2.0 and Hell's Kitchen rolled in at 2.5. Thank god for Thursdays, right?
Only time will tell which shows can increase in strength and which are cancelled!
