Ratings: House Easily Wins the Night, While The Event... Um, Fares Better Than The Cape?

A polarizing episode of Fox’s House handily won the night this Monday, besting all comers in both total viewers (with 11.1 million, its second-largest audience of the season) and in the demo (scoring a 3.8 rating).

Elsewhere, NBC’s The Event resumed its freshman run by hitting a series-low 1.4 rating with the coveted 18-49 crowd. But while the first hour fell shy of Chuck‘s most recent tally by a good 18 percent, the 9 o’clock outing (faint praise alert!) delivered double-digit gains over The Cape‘s final broadcast.
