'2 Broke Girls' surges as CBS seizes Monday

Two Broke Girls Ratings

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.
