- Fox indeed got a rebound week-to-week from last Monday's overrun-impacted programming, with Terra Nova and House each back up by double digits. Obviously Fox was hoping for and probably expecting a rebound, but was this enough of one? The shows were both still down significantly from their last regular start time airings a couple weeks ago, when Nova got a 3.1 and House premiered to a 3.9.
- The other big beneficiaries from no MLB overrun were the two 10:00 programs that had to deal with House last week, Hawaii Five-0 (up 15%) and Castle (up 19%). I had thought House was a factor in both of their weak returns last week, but it's definitely a major sigh of relief for Castle, which ends its streak of three straight weeks with big drops.
- In the still not settled department is Two and a Half Men, which lost double-digits again (but, to keep it in perspective, is still ahead of any rating from last season). At least it appears the rest of the CBS evening has leveled off.
