‘Revolution’ rallies to three-week high

'Voice' top series Monday as NBC routs rivals in demo

NBC had a strong night Monday, easily ruling as the top broadcaster in key demos in all six half-hours as “The Voice” held steady while “Revolution” hit a three-week high.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Voice” averaged a big 4.8 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and 12.8 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., peaking with a 5.2/12 and 13.4 million in its final half-hour. It was followed by “Revolution” (3.4/9 in 18-49, 8.8 million viewers overall), which grew 13% week to week to post best-since-premiere numbers.

At second-place CBS, “How I Met Your Mother” (3.2/9 in 18-49, 8.1 million viewers overall), “Partners” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall), “2 Broke Girls” (3.3/8 in 18-49, 9.2 million viewers overall), “Mike & Molly” (3.0/7 in 18-49, 9.0 million viewers overall) and “Hawaii Five-0” (2.0/5 in 18-49, 8.4 million viewers overall) all edged up week to week. The net’s San Diego station aired the NFL game between the Chargers and Broncos, which may have affected scores for the night’s opening hour.

ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” (2.1/5 in 18-49, 13.5 million viewers overall) and “Castle” (2.0/5 in 18-49, 10.9 million viewers overall) were both down a bit week to week in demos, though the latter drama appears to have hit a season high in total viewers. The Alphabet was Monday’s most-watched broadcaster overall for a fourth straight week.

Preliminary nationals for Fox are subject to revision, but the net’s coverage of baseball’s National League Championship Series averaged a 1.3/3 in 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers overall on the net’s stations from 8 to 11.

At CW, “90210” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 1.1 million viewers overall) was up from its premiere, while “Gossip Girl” (0.4/1 in 18-49, 0.8 million viewers overall) was flat.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 4.3/11; CBS, 2.6/7; ABC, 2.1/5; Univision, 1.5/4; Fox, 1.3/3; CW, 0.5/1.

In total viewers: ABC, 12.6 million; NBC, 11.5 million; CBS, 8.2 million; Fox, 4.8 million; Univision, 3.7 million; CW, 0.9 million.
