After airing a repeat last week, "Hawaii Five-0" returned to the air Monday with a new episode and a commanding ratings victory for the hour.
"Five-0" drew 10.51 million viewers, well ahead of ABC's "Castle," which drew 7.73 million viewers, according to Nielsen ratings released by CBS. On NBC, "Chase" drew 4.99 million viewers.
The cop drama's last two new episodes — Nov. 15 and 22 — also won the timeslot when they aired.
"Five-0" will air a new episode next week, but CBS press material currently notes that the network will air repeat episodes on Dec. 20 and 27.
