Ratings can be a fickle game, and it was therefore hard to be certain Miley Cyrus was the true driver of “Two and a Half Men”‘s season high ratings for her first guest appearance.
That argument is now significantly easier to make; ratings again spiked for her appearance this week.
“Men” rose to a 4.0 adults 18-49 rating with 14.1 million viewers, easily winning its timeslot and building on last week’s performance.
While its CBS lead-in “The Big Bang Theory” was again strong, it actually dipped in the demo this week, averaging a 5.0 and 16.5 million viewers compared to last Thursday’s 5.1 and 15.7 million. That further supports the notion that Cyrus is spiking the ratings by a few tenths.
