Charlie Sheen and current affairs help Nine win Monday

Nine has scored a rare Monday ratings win with two repeat episodes of Two and a Half Men and its one hour news and current affairs bulletin contributing to its success.   

Last night was the first Monday win for Nine since the return of Seven’s City Homicide on August 10.

The 8:30 crime show had its worst audience for this, its third season with just under 1.3 million viewers, according to preliminary OzTam ratings.

But it did manage to win its timeslot again beating Nine’s Farmer Wants a Wife and Ten’s Good News Week on what was an average night for viewer numbers.

The 7pm and 7:30 repeat episodes of Two and a Half Men on Nine attracted 1.2 million and 1.3 million respectively and both Nine News and A Current Affair both reached over 1.3 million.
