ABCs-GLASS-HOUSE-20010101

The premiere episode of the new ABC reality series GLASS HOUSE was shattered in the ratings Monday night. The series was recently involved in a controversial law suit in which CBS claimed they copied the premise of its long-running reality show "Big Brother." Despite the added publicity resulting from the legal action, “The Glass House” was the lowest-rated of six reality shows on network television Monday night.  

Here are the other highlights of the 14 ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night:

FOX (5.53 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 2.4, #1) slipped past the competition on Monday with new episodes of "Hell's Kitchen" (5.56 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 2.5, #2) and "MasterChef" (5.50 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 2.3, #T3).

Next up was ABC (6.01 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 2.0, #3) with a new "The Bachelorette" (6.93 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 2.3, #T3) plus the premiere of "The Glass House" (4.19 million viewers, #11; adults 18-49: 1.6, #7).

Meanwhile, CBS (5.19 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 1.3, #4) offered up its all-repeat lineup of "How I Met Your Mother" (4.13 million viewers, #12; adults 18-49: 1.1, #12), "2 Broke Girls" (4.43 million viewers, #10; adults 18-49: 1.3, #T9), "Two and a Half Men" (5.79 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 1.3, #T9), "Mike & Molly" (5.30 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 1.2, #11), "The Big Bang Theory" (6.57 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 1.8, #6) and another "Two and a Half Men" (4.95 million viewers, #9; adults 18-49: 1.4, #8).

And finally, encores of "Breaking Pointe" (0.58 million viewers, #13; adults 18-49: 0.2, #13) and "90210" (0.35 million viewers, #14; adults 18-49: 0.1, #14) on The CW (0.47 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.2, #5) closed out the evening.
