- I'm working on a post (hopefully for late this week) about repeat telecasts in general, and that seems fitting because Two and a Half Men hit a season high 3.3 for a repeat, up three ticks week-to-week despite facing a decently-rated live Sheen interview with Piers Morgan. Only one other repeat telecast in the 2010-11 season has done better (Modern Family's 3.5 on 2/2/11).
- Almost all other week-to-week moves were fairly insignificant (single digits percentage-wise), but it was another good week for ABC's lineup, with both shows at or near season-best levels.

Will probably develop more disclaimers if this develops further, but the one that jumps out for now is that the stats in blue will be less accurate because for now I'm counting every program as if it maintains that same rating throughout each half-hour of the broadcast. That is almost always not the case in reality.
