    With Charlie Sheen's demise and Ashton Kutcher's introduction over and done with, Two and a Half Men was supposed get back to normal. 

    But it didn't:

    A look at Monday's key TV ratings performances, including the series premieres of Hart of Dixie and Terra Nova:

    VOTE NOW: What'd you think of Hart of Dixie?

    STILL HUGE

    Two and a Half Men (20 million viewers, per estimates): The Lion King is back, and so are 1990s-sized audiences.

    2 Broke Girls (11.6 million viewers): This time, the newbie impressed without Two and a Half Men's help. (Or, without Two and a Half Men's lead-in, at least. Across the board, CBS' Monday comedies, including Mike & Molly, which finally joined the fun last night, are way up from last fall.)

    STILL NOT HUGE (OR, STILL NOT AS HUGE)

    Dancing With the Stars (16 million viewers): The overall numbers aren't bad; the comparisons are scary. Last night's episode was down more than 5 million viewers from the same ballroom night last year.

    PAM AM WITH DINOSAURS

    Terra Nova (9 million viewers): Like a certain retro series, this Steven Spielberg adventure was mega-expensive. And like a certain retro series, this show got off to a good, though not mega-big, start.

    IS THIS GOOD?

    Gossip Girl (1.4 million viewers) and Hart of Dixie (1.8 million viewers): Who knows what's considered a success on the CW these days. To the naked eye, these shows' season and series premieres, respectively, were sparsely, sparsely attended. 

    THIS CAN'T BE GOOD

    The Playboy Club (3.9 million viewers): For the second week, the other retro series was dead last among the Big Four networks' shows. Pretty soon, it may just be dead.
