Episode 2.13 Ratings

We have the ratings from last night's episode, apologies for being late, I think people were busy watching the Inauguration! The ratings did, as we predicted, drop due to Fox moving their hit show House to the same time slot, but not by particularly much.

The show pulled 11.1 million viewers, which is 700,000 fewer than last week but still way above the average for Season 1 and the earlier episodes of Season 2. That's pretty impressive really. The other indicators were down as well, a .6 fall in households to 6.5/10 (opposed to 7.1/11 last week), a .4 fall in adults 18-49 to 4.0/10 (opposed to 4.4/11 last week), the show was second coming in behind House.

These are good ratings considering the show was up against House. This episode did better, even up against House, than any episode in the first season, and is the 3rd highest rated episode of this season. That's with competition from a show which, unlike Dancing with the Stars, targets much the same demographic.

How I Met Your Mother suffered worse, it lost viewers from Big Bang, and was rated much lower than last week. It did however get a higher rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.
