Applegate, Slater shows slide in ratings

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The second week of ABC’s Christina Applegate comedy “Samantha Who?” and NBC’s Christian Slater action drama “My Own Worst Enemy” declined in the ratings Monday night.

“Samantha” dropped 16% from its Season 2 premiere (9.6 million viewers vs. 11.4 million), while the heavily promoted “Enemy” tumbled 22% from its disappointing series premiere (5.7 million vs. 7.3 million).

CBS easily won the night, thanks to veteran sitcom “Two and a Half Men” (14.6 million) and “CSI: Miami” (13.5 million). But the crime drama, worryingly, is off 22% from its Season 7 premiere last month.

ABC boasted the night’s top show, “Dancing With the Stars” (18.5 million vs. 17.8 million last week).

Some fans of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” (5 million) reacted to Fox’s full-season order for the show by tuning out — the series dropped 13% from its previous airing two weeks ago.

On the CW, the ratings showed some soap opera-like dramatics. “Gossip Girl” (3 million) fell nine percent to hit a season low, while veteran “One Tree Hill” (3.7 million) jumped six percent to a season high — despite the softer “Gossip” lead-in this week. Clearly these two just do their own thing.
