Almost since it first aired on CBS, TWO AND A HALF MEN has been the flagship comedy over at CBS. However, that all changed last week when THE BIG BANG THEORY finally has moved into the top comedy position over at CBS and on TV in general, becoming the top comedy overall. BIG BANG THEORY drew 16 million viewers, while TWO AND A HALF MEN weakened slightly to 13.9 million viewers.
But, the news isn’t all bad for TWO AND A HALF MEN. Monday night TV faced some serious competition from Halloween and from MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL over on cable TV. BIG BANG THEORY is likely the top comedy now, but TWO AND A HALF MEN should have it’s rating peak up a bit this week.
