Monk, Psych stumble in a shift to NBC

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The NBC premieres of USA Network’s “Monk” and “Psych” showed once again that cable network programs get cable-level ratings when transported to broadcast.

Sunday night’s debut of “Monk” (5.7 million viewers) and “Psych” (4.0 million) came in below the network’s time-period averages at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., respectively.

NBC was third for the night in viewership (5.4 million), behind CBS (8.8 million) and ABC (8.7 million). Fox (4.8 million) brought up the rear.

CBS boasted the night’s most-watched show, an on-par “Cold Case” (11.8 million) in its second week back in originals. Its lineup was also bolstered by “Dexter” (7.1 million).

ABC’s top-rated reality show, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” (9.9 million), was a repeat at 9 p.m. “Oprah’s Big Give” (9.4 million) dropped to its lowest rating of the season. “Here Come the Newlyweds” (7.7 million) managed to grow slightly for its season finale.
