2-broke-girls-dec-10-ratings.jpgFast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 10, 2012

CBS had a good night Monday as its lineup, led by a pair of “2 Broke Girls” episodes, was up across the board. “The Voice,” which scaled back to one hour this week, was up a tick over its 8 o’clock numbers last week as well. That didn’t translate to great ratings for the premiere of game show “Take It All,” however.

Elsewhere, the American Country Awards fell sharply from last year’s show, losing more than 2 million viewers. “Gossip Girl” hit a season high for The CW.

CBS currently stands at 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/10 share in households for the night. Those numbers may come down a bit in the final nationals because the network’s Houston affiliate carried a highly rated “Monday Night Football” game. NBC (8.4 million, 5.1/8) came in second. ABC (whose Boston station also ran the “MNF” contest) was third at 5.6 million viewers and a 3.6/5, beating out FOX (5.1 million, 3.2/5). The CW (1.1 million, 0.8/1) trailed.

CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.3 rating, beating NBC’s 2.5. ABC and FOX tied for third at 1.4, while The CW posted a 0.5.
