For the first time this fall, CBS has won Monday night instead of NBC.
With NBC reducing The Voice to a single hour last night, CBS gave viewers a double-helping of 2 Broke Girls 9 p.m., pushing the network into first place.
Broke Girls topped out with 11.8 million viewers and a 4.0 rating, rising 14 percent from last week. That helped push Hawaii Five-0 up 17 percent to easily win 10 p.m. with 10.4 million viewers and a 2.7 rating.
A shorter Voice (12.2 million, 3.8) was down a tenth for last night’s semi-final performances. Howie Mandel’s new game show preview Take It All (7.2 million, 2.2) performed semi-okay, while a Michael Buble holiday special (5.8 million, 1.4) was soft at 10 p.m.
Also Monday: Fox’s American Country Awards (5.1 million, 1.4) plummeted 30 percent from last year; The CW’s Gossip Girl hit a season high as it approaches next week’s series finale.
