Monday’s TV ratings are in along with the cable ratings for Sunday’s programming. Here’s a brief look at the highlights:
- CBS’ veteran series How I Met Your Mother saw a rise, hitting a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and 9 million viewers. That’s up 6% from last week’s 3.1 rating.
- 2 Broke Girls was once again the highest rated program of the night, garnering a 4.0 rating and 11.8 million viewers and a 3.9 rating and 11.5 million viewers for back-to-back new episodes. That’s up over last week’s 3.5 rating in the demo.
- Over at Showtime, the penultimate episode of Dexter‘s seventh season broke literally every Showtime record in existence, as the installment drew 2.6 million total viewers.
- Critical favorite Homeland also made records of its own, as the Showtime series’ penultimate episode of its second season was up 8 percent over last week’s series-high, netting another all-time high of 2.36 million viewers.

Prior to the CBS portion of the TCA Press Tour, Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment, took some time to talk about where she sees things going for the #1 broadcast network in viewers and Emmy nominations, the addition of Ted Danson to CSI, and what’s next for Two and a Half Men and its new lead actor, Ashton Kutcher. Here are the most interesting points:
- CBS is adding the recognizable faces of Ashton Kutcher (Two and a Half Men), Ted Danson (CSI) and Terry O’Quinn (Hawaii Five-0) to some of the network’s most-established and most-popular series
- Two and a Half Men went into production on their new season this past Monday
- Ashton Kutcher will be playing broken-hearted Internet billionaire, Walden Schmidt, and his character will be introduced over a two-part story
- They’re hoping A Gifted Man, starring Patrick Wilson, will appeal to the fans of previous CBS shows, The Ghost Whisperer and Medium
- The highly acclaimed drama The Good Wife will return with the higher-profile time period of Sunday at 9 pm (on September 25th) and a very interesting character transformation ahead for Alicia (Julianna Margulies)
- In a rather risky move, Rules of Engagement will be airing on Saturday nights
- Police drama The 2-2, a pilot for Rob Schneider and reality series Undercover Boss are all being planned for mid-season
- As of now, David Letterman and Craig Ferguson are still set in their late-night timeslots through 2012

In a sign that this year’s Comic-Con is going to be bigger than ever, THR is reporting a huge number of TV shows are already confirmed to appear at the Convention. Included are:
- FOX – Steven Spielberg’s new sci-fi Fox show Terra Nova, Fringe, Human Target, Bones
- NBC – The Event, The Cape, Chuck
- CBS – Hawaii Five-O
- ABC – No Ordinary Family, V, Castle
- AMC – The Walking Dead
- The CW – Nikita, Vampire Diaries
- USA Network – Burn Notice, Psych, White Collar
- FX – Sons of Anarchy
- They even mention that Conan O’Brien might attend. Can I say YES!
While the official schedule usually gets released about a month from now, with Comic-Con only getting bigger every year, I’d imagine a lot more shows will be added to this list. After all, I know Stargate Universe will be there and that’s not listed. Finally, if you don’t have a badge…better get on eBay, as Comic-Con has been sold out for months. See some of you in San Diego next month.
CBS has released the opening credit sequence to the remake of Hawaii Five-O. Starring Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park and produced by Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, it’s no surprise the remake got picked-up. Hit the jump to watch the new credit sequence and I’ve also posted the original so you can compare the two. Hawaii Five-O will be airing Monday’s at 10pm.
