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.

More Monday notables:

* The Bachelor: The Women Tell All drew 9.94 million gawkers and a 3.1 rating, dropping 10 percent week-to-week.

* The CBS freshman comedy Mad Love (7.27 mil/2.4) was down some 10 percent.

* Fox’s stellar The Chicago Code held steady-ish with 7.5 million viewers and a 2.1 rating.

* Facing Castle and Hawaii Five-0 repeats, NBC’s Harry’s Law courted its biggest audience since Feb. 7 (9.4 million viewers), though its demos were flat at 1.8 mil.

    Well, let’s face it, there was hardly competition for House, so that was not really surprising, was it? And now that Huddy is over, I’ll gladly tune in next week again :D

    • Irene says:

      @Liz As long as House and Cuddy are in the show Huddy is not over. Sorry. In fact, I’m sure they’ll be back. If you don’t like the show anymore because of Huddy stop watching and stop complaining about it.

      • Jack says:

        Um, then how do you interpret this tweet from GregYaitanes? “R.I.P. #Huddy”

        • Lex says:

          I interpret it as Huddy, meaning House and Cuddy dating (which I did like but will admit was getting stale), is over. But Huddy, meaning the always fun and intriguing interplay between those two, is always going to be there. The sad thing is that House really is a more fascinating show when the character is miserable. I’m beginning to think it’s about the whole hopelessness of his Byronic-hero-like personality and the inevitable isolation of a genius.

        • Jill says:

          Greg Yaitanes is a director. He doesn’t write or plan the show.
          What happens between House and Cuddy depends on David Shore and Katie Jacobs. Greg enjoys pulling our chain. :)

    Chicago Code just isn’t getting enough praise. It’s great plotting, great characters, great acting. Delroy Lindo should be Emmy bait for his corrupt alderman role. He’s an outrageously different kind of villain. Who else would deliver a big screen TV to the hospital room of the kid who tried to shoot him? Jennifer Beals is a revelation.

    I hope Fox keeps it around. If it’s a bubble show, I can’t think of another program I’d choose over it.

    Where can I find out how Stargate Universe did last night?

    It’s too bad there isn’t more discussion or coverage about Harry’s Law. Last night’s episode was very, very good and still has me thinking about the appearance of who’s good, who’s bad, and the idea of redemption. It’s wonderfully written and it’s been showing some real originality.

    Let’s hope The Event has a great ending planned for all of us who kept watching it. This does not to be renewed more than FlashForward did. Both are/were equally not good.

    So Chuck scores around a 1.7 while the event comes in on the timeslot and gets a 1.4. gg.

    I love Harry’s Law! Kathy Bates is rockin’
