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.

SURVIVOR: SAMOA (P) was second in households (6.9/11), viewers (11.87m), adults 25-54 (4.6/12) and adults 18-49 (3.7/11). Compared to last week's broadcast, SURVIVOR: SAMOA was up +1% in households (from 6.8/11), +3% in adults 18-49 (from 3.6/11), even in adults 25-54 and added +210,000 viewers (from 11.66m, +2%).
