No big sporting events and a mixed bag of repeats and new episodes made for a quiet Monday in the Nielsen ratings. In Nielsen’s preliminary fast national results, “The Voice” took the crown in the 18-49 demographic with a 2.3 rating — and an average audience of 10.33 million — while “Dancing With the Stars” drew the larger total audience with 10.98 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the demo.

After “The Voice” on NBC, “Taken” improved marginally from the week before, to a 1.1 demo rating and 5.25 million viewers. “Quantico” followed “DWTS” with a 0.8 in the demo and 3.45 million viewers.

CBS led off with “Big Bang Theory” and “Kevin Can Wait” repeats and ended with a “Scorpion” encore. A fresh “Superior Donuts” drew a slightly up 1.1 in the demo and 5.28 million viewers. A special Monday installment of “The Great Indoors” notched a 0.9 in the demo and 4.08 million viewers.

On Fox, “24: Legacy” improved slightly to a 0.9 in the demo and 3.19 million viewers. “APB” came in at a 0.6 and 2.83 million viewers.

The CW’s “Supergirl” drew a 0.7 in the demo and 2.2 million viewers. “Jane the Virgin” weighed in with a 0.4 and 938,000 viewers.

As a reminder, daily ratings fluctuations tend to amount to mere quantum foam, and many of these series will see lifts of 50% or more once viewing within three and seven days is counted. However, most of those gains won’t translate to the ratings guarantees networks make advertisers.

    The Great Indoors got 0.9 when it did not follow The Big Bang Theory. Maybe it’s time to consider that May 11 might be the Series not Season finale.
