Univision Takes Over As Numero Uno On Monday
With all of the other major broadcast networks airing mostly reruns, Spanish-language Univision was able to eke out a victory as the most-watched TV network Monday night among 18-49-year-old viewers, coming out slightly ahead of CBS. Indeed, the finale of La Fuerza del Destino drew 5.4 million viewers and stood its ground even in the face of solid competition from CBS, the usual Monday-night winner. CBS did manage to score the highest-rated show of the night with a rerun of Two and a Half Men , which attracted 8.1 million viewers. On Tuesday, another night of mostly repeats on the major networks, Univision tied with CBS for the most viewers in the 18-49 demographic. CBS aired the only new show on any of the majors' schedules -- the Kennedy Center Honors, which averaged 8.35 million viewers between 9 00 p.m. and 11 00 p.m.
