NBC got some much needed good news on Monday night as the return of Fear Factor delivered really strong ratings by NBC standards. The show skewed young and gave NBC one of its best demo performances of anything outside of Sunday Night Football this season. NBC would be wise to not run this show to death as it looks like it be a good filler for the network. It did not help Rock Center much though as the newsmagazine was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

CBS experimented by kicking the night off with 2 Broke Girls at 8pm. It did quite well and held its own as a self-starter but it was a season low. This show will be an anchor someday but CBS would be wise to let it grow a little bit longer where it is. A repeat of Girls followed and garnered great encore ratings. At 9pm, Two and a Half Men was down three tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo while Mike & Molly was up a tenth in viewers but down two tenths in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 closed out the night up two tenths in viewers but down the same in the demo. It probably should have done better with such limited competition but this show has done well this fall.

Over on ABC, a Charlie Brown special did not do much at 8pm and You Deserve It slipped another two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The Bachelor can't come soon enough for ABC. Over on FOX, Terra Nova was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from the last airing two weeks ago. It's looking more and more like next week's season finale will be a series finale.
