Ratings: 'House' very healthy in new time slot

Now that the anemic Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Prison Break have moved time slots, Fox’s Monday nights are actually a force to be reckoned with. House debuted in its new 8 p.m. spot to a very strong 14.9 million viewers. Meanwhile, its lead-out, 24, only dropped about 200,000 viewers from the previous week. Most surprising, though, was the rise of The Bachelor and fall of Gossip Girl. ABC’s reality dating series added almost a million watchers to its 9.1 million from last week, while The CW’s teen soap dipped to a mere 2.2 million, a drop of 700,000 from its last installment.
