‘Carrie Diaries’ has low-rated premiere, CBS wins night with ‘2 Broke Girls’

By Daniel S Levine,

The Carrie Diaries, The CW’s prequel to Sex and the City, didn’t draw the numbers the network was likely hoping for, doing only as well as other CW shows. Meanwhile, CBS easily won the night with new episodes of How I Met Your Mother and 2 Broke Girls.

CBS came out on top with 10.7 million viewers and a 3.3 18-49 rating. HIMYM kicked off the night with 10.42 million viewers and a 3.8 key demo rating, a 12 percent jump from its last new episode, notes THR. Following a Big Bang Theory repeat (11.53 million), a 2 Broke Girls had 12.2 million viewers and a 4.1 18-49 rating, matching a season high. Mike & Molly followed with 11.5 million and a 3.5 18-49 rating.

ABC came in second with just under 7.96 million viewers and a 2.2 18-49 rating, notes HitFix. The first hour of The Bachelor had 7.43 million viewers, while the second hour was down a bit to 7.36 million. Overall, its 2.4 18-49 rating was up slightly from last week. Castle followed with just over 9 million viewers and a 1.9 rating.

Fox’s special two-hour Bones had 7.91 million viewers and a 2.1 18-49 rating.

NBC followed with 5.57 million viewers and a 2.1 18-49 rating. The Biggest Loser had over 6 million viewers over its two hours and a 2.4 18-49 rating. Deception dropped to 4.16 million viewers and a 1.6 18-49 rating.

The CW’s Carrie Diaries had 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 18-49 rating, notes EW. The network is desperately looking for good news, noting that its Monday dramas are often DVR’d, so it could have a boost from viewers who didn’t catch either of last night’s two airings. Unfortunately, viewers actually left during the second half hour, a stat the CW doesn’t want to see.
