TV News: Ratings, 2.5 Men, Bazura

TV Ratings
Fox's big-budget adventure series "Terra Nova" debuted to a respectable but not particularly stellar 3.0 rating and 9 million total viewers last night.

NBC's "The Playboy Club" saw a plunge with a 19% drop in its second week to a rather pitiable 1.3 rating and 3.8 million viewers. However the network's ambitious "Pan Am" soap on Sunday night scored an impressive 10.9 million viewers and a 3.1 rating, actually increasing the audience from its "Desperate Housewives" lead-in.

Finally, the second season premiere of HBO's Prohibition-era "Boardwalk Empire" took in 2 .9 million viewers, down 40% from its series debut last September. [Source: The Live Feed]

Two and a Half Men
Warner Bros. Television, "Two and a Half Men" executive producer Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their ongoing legal dispute. Sheen is believed to have received upwards of $25 million.

Meanwhile after last week's high profile season premiere with Ashton Kutcher making his debut, the sitcom took an understandable slide of 30% for its second episode but still posted a 10.7 rating and 20.3 million viewers, 50% up on the second episode of 'Men' last season. [Source: EW]
