Monday Night TV Ratings Shocker!

So in the battle between superheroes and super agents, who won the most viewers last night? Did Jack Bauer's tense hour make people tune in to "24", or did special powers vault "Heroes" into first place? The answer just may surprise you, so


The show that actually got the most viewers was "Two and a Half Men." Yes, really. The Charlie Sheen comedy claimed 16.1 million TV sets, while "Heroes" and "24" were battling to a draw, earning 14.8 million and 14.4 million viewers, respectively. Crazy!

Granted, a lot of people care more about the 18-34 demographic, and if you only look at that number, "Heroes" won the night. But still, I had no idea Charlie Sheen still had that many fans. Did you?

It's because 24 and Heroes share the same type of viewers so their viewer base was split while Two and a Half Men maintained their usual viewers; but had it been up against one of them alone it would have been's like Perot and Bush Sr splitting the electorate

You're not alone; I don't watch 24 or Heroes either. (But...I also don't watch Two and a Half Men, so I guess nothing surprises me on the Monday night ratings since I don't know any of these three very well.)

I LOVE Two and a Half Men. And it's not because I'm a Charlie Sheen fan...the show is hilarious. :) I missed it last night though because I was working. And I might be the only person on earth who doesn't watch 24 or Heroes.

That is so weird. I would have picked Heroes over Two and a Half Men anyday (and I don't watch Heroes). YAY for 24 though! Last night was soooo goood! As is every episode!
