'Five-0' draws 12M viewers, wins time slot for third week

In the only fight more important than catching bad guys on the streets of Honolulu, CBS Television's "Hawaii Five-0" won the major network ratings war Monday night for the third week in a row, according to Nielsen ratings released yesterday by the network.

"Five-0" won its time slot by drawing 12.24 million viewers, CBS said. That's down slightly from last week, when the remake of the popular crime drama drew 12.72 million viewers, and considerably less than the series pilot premiere Sept. 20, when "Five-0" topped all network challengers with 14.2 million viewers.

"Monday Night Football," which typically has the largest audience on Monday night, has moved to ESPN and is not included in the major network ratings battle.

"We're thrilled," said Peter Lenkov, an executive producer of "Hawaii Five-0." "If numbers are any indication, it appears folks are liking what we're doing."

"Five-0" held its ratings advantage for its third episode while the other shows on the other big networks fell off as their numbers were revised during the day. ABC's "Castle" drew 10.83 million viewers, and NBC's "Chase" drew 5.78 million viewers, according to the Nielsen numbers released by CBS.

Last week the preliminary figures released early in the day put "Five-0" in the No. 2 spot behind "Castle." That changed later in the day.

In Monday's episode of "Five-0," titled "Malama ka Aina," a gunfight breaks out at a Kukui High School football game. The "Five-0" crew investigates who is supplying local gangs with guns and breaks up a gambling operation.

The website TVbythenumbers.com ranked "Hawaii Five-0" as "certain to be renewed by May 2011" based on ratings for the first two episodes.
