     February 26, 2013


Monday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • The CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls garnered a series low with a 3.2 rating and 10.19 million viewers.  That’s down three tenths from last week’s 3.5 rating.  Even so, the episode remained the second highest-rated and second most-watched bit of TV programming for the night.
  • Also down on CBS was Rules of Engagement, which hit a season-low 2.6 rating and 7.8 million viewers for a drop of three tenths from last week’s 2.9 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Monday, February 25th, including Mike & Molly, Castle, and How I Met Your Mother.
