NBC’s Monday dips, still tops in demo

'Voice' hits fall low; 'Hawaii' gains on 'Revolution'

NBC has captured another Monday demo victory among the broadcasters, though top show “The Voice” hit a season low. The net’s 10 p.m. rookie drama “Revolution” matched its low but held steady week to week.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Voice” averaged a 3.7 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 10.5 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., gaining in rating with each half-hour and hitting a 4.1 from 9:30 to 10.; it was on the par with its third live episode from the spring. Still, this is a season low for the music contest, down about 15% week to week and its first Monday installment to go below a 4 demo rating.

In the night’s final hour, “Revolution” (2.6/7 in 18-49, 7.0 million viewers overall) matched its demo delivery of last week but led its broadcast competition as it has every time it has aired.

For the night, NBC prevailed in adults 18-49 for a ninth straight week (3.3/9) and also won in adults 25-54 (4.0/9).

CBS, runner-up among the broadcasters in most categories, opened with the steady “How I Met Your Mother” (3.0/8 in 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall), which had its most competitive finish with “The Voice” this fall (trailing by 0.3). A repeat “Two and a Half Men” (2.1/5 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) followed and improved upon last week’s final performance in the timeslot for the now-canceled “Partners,” and that seemed to help “2 Broke Girls” (3.4/8 in 18-49, 9.7 million viewers overall), which was up week to week and tied “The Voice” as the night’s top entertainment series in adults 25-54 rating (4.4).

From there, “Mike & Molly” (2.9/7 in 18-49, 9.2 million viewers overall) was down a tick and “Hawaii Five-0” (2.2/6 in 18-49, 8.8 million viewers overall) edged up for a season high and had its closest 18-49 finish yet with “Revolution” (down 0.4).

ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” (2.3/6 in 18-49, 14.1 million viewers overall) and “Castle” (2.0/5 in 18-49, 10.5 million viewers overall) were both up a bit from their two prior outings, with the former matching a season high in total viewers. Both shows again led their timeslots in total viewers.

Also up slightly week to week were Fox’s “Bones” (2.0/5 in 18-49, 7.1 million viewers overall) and “The Mob Doctor” (0.9/2 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall).

CW’s “90210” (0.4/1 in 18-49, 0.8 million viewers overall) and “Gossip Girl” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.7 million viewers overall) remain very soft and were down week to week.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 3.3/9; CBS, 2.6/7; ABC, 2.2/6; Univision, 1.7/4; Fox, 1.4/4; CW, 0.4/1.

In total viewers: ABC, 12.9 million; NBC, 9.4 million; CBS, 8.5 million; Fox, 5.1 million; Univision, 4.2 million; CW, 0.7 million.
