The season premiere of "Two and a Half Men" introducing Ashton Kutcher brought in a record-breaking 28.7 million viewers last week. Not all of them stayed, but the second episode still posted very strong numbers.
Last night's episode drew 20.3 million viewers, a 30% drop from the premiere. A drop was expected, since many viewers tuned in for the premiere to learn the fate of Charlie Sheen's character and how Kutcher's character would enter the show.
The Hollywood Reporter says last night's episode marked a 50% gain compared to the second episode of "Men" last season -- very encouraging news.
Meanwhile, "Dancing With the Stars" also took a dip in its ratings, but held steady.
