For those of you that missed it or don't watch any of Producer Chuck Lorre's comedies, last night's requires you to read it to the last line which is a twist that I found hilarious and sad at the same time, though it may just be my peculiar sense of humor: Anyway here's the ratings for the first Monday of the Winter schedule: CBS again ran its same old winning schedule. "2 Broke Girls" again did very well. ABC premiered a new season of "The Bachelor" which compared to last year's premier was down a bit (last year: 2.7/7 - 8.89 million at 8:00 and 3.1/8 - 9.12 million at 9:00). Whether that is a result of last night being part of a three day weekend or folks aren't watching the show remains to be seen. For whatever less-than-clever reason, ran the premier of "Celebrity Wife Swap" at 10:00. Last year they ran the regular show at that time - let's see what was it ... oh yeah, "Castle" - which pulled in a meager 3.34 million more viewers and which this fall occasionally has been beating "Hawaii Five-0." Fox apparently thinks it can fix its fall "House" weak-ratings-due-to-9:00 scheduling by running two hours of reruns until it runs the two hour premier of "Alcatraz" on January 16 and then airs a new "House" at its old regular time of 8:00 the following Monday. NBC's lineup of game shows, including the "Deathly Ratings for Brian Williams" show, did as poorly as usual. NBC has decided to premier its Winter lineup premiers the first week of Nielsen's February Sweeps which run February 2 - February 29, 2012. Whether at the beginning of sweeps the season premier of "The Voice" from 8:00 - 10:00 will do well enough to provide a decent lead into the series premier of "Smash" is questionable. If "Smash" is done well ... it still may not be able to pull enough viewers against "Hawaii Five-0" and "Castle". But we'll see. Just like Chuck Lorre, I also feel a wave of sadness when I click my TV remote past NBC. The CW is rerunning two episodes of "The Secret Circle" Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before it returns at 9:00 Thursday. The reruns didn't pull a million viewers at either hour tonight.
