Lie To Me Posts Its Best Ratings In Over a Year

Fox enjoyed its most watched Monday night of the 2010-11 TV season to date, as House won the 8 o’clock hour and Lie To Me delivered its best numbers in well over a year.

House kicked off the night with an audience of 10.44 million total viewers, and a 3.7 rating in the 18-to-49 demo (up 6 percent week-to-week). Lie To Me in turn scored 7.66 million viewers (its best audience since October 2009) and a 2.4 rating (representing a 14-month high).

Lie To Me has only one episode left to air this season, next week’s Social Network-y “Killer App.” Hopefully this week’s surge will help the series earn a Season 4 pick-up.
