By the Numbers: Trust Me, House, NCIS and More - Featured


Wondering how new TNT drama Trust Me fared on Monday night?


The program kinda underwhelmed, with 3.4 million viewers tuning into the show's debut. The Closer, however, returned an hour earlier on TNT with a far healthier 6.4 million viewers. In comparison, Raising the Bar premiered in September on the same network with a record-breaking 7.7 million viewers.


Other Monday Highlights


Fox easily won Monday night; House drew a season high with 15.6 million viewers. 24 also had a healthy 12.3 million viewers.


CBS and The CW were in reruns, though The Big Bang Theory still picked up over 9 million viewers for CBS at 8.


NBC came in 4th place with the conclusions of Superstars of Dance and The Last Templar.


Tuesday Highlights


NCIS drew its 3rd largest audience ever - 19 million viewers - all while airing against American Idol. Idol grabbed 25.2 million viewers.


Fringe - with the benefit of Idol's lead-in - managed a healthy 12.1 million viewers at 9, though a rerun of The Mentalist still won the hour with 15.1 million viewers.


ABC came in 4th for the night with double Scrubs (5 million viewers) and other programs which matter less.
