Week 16 (Final Week!!) Summer Ratings: Sitcom Edition:

Monday Sitcoms

  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - Aired at 8 p.m. this week because of Bush's speech, did only 5.78 million. Season premiere airs tomorrow at 8:30 p.m.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - Due to Bush's speech from 9-9:20, the sitcom aired at 9:30, did OK with 7.2 million, down from its usual repeat numbers.

  • One on One (UPN), All of Us (UPN), Girlfriends, Half & Half (UPN) - UPN is gone mostly everywhere now, as MyNetworkTV has taken a majority of the affiliates, so the numbers are again (like last week) just way way down. These sitcoms ranged from 640,000 to 930,000 viewers.
