Halloween night gave network execs a fright when Monday primetime programming slipped in ratings, but nearly every show has improved upon last week's performance.
CBS sitcoms like Two and a Half Men, Two Broke Girls, and How I Met Your Mother all increased their viewership from Halloween, but Dancing With The Stars allowed ABC to dominate the night with 18 million total viewers.
FOX shows like Terra Nova and House couldn't break into the double digits, but still faired well compared to last Monday as they boosted their ratings 24% and 8%, respectively.
Rock Center with Brian Williams debuted last week with only 3.5 million viewers and couldn't attract anymore this week. The show is performing with 38% lower ratings than the show it replaced!
In Brian Williams' defense, it probably doesn't help that The Sing Off, which precedes his primetime topical news show, tied a series low by only bringing in 4.2 million total viewers.
NBC has to step up their game if they want to compete on Mondays!
