The second season premiere of THE MENTALIST on its new night improved the 10:00-11:00 PM year ago time period premiere of "Eleventh Hour" and the second episode of SURVIVOR: SAMOA increased last week's deliveries in viewers and demos, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for Thursday, Sept. 24.
