‘Voice,’ ‘Dancing’ up on atypical Monday

Night sees preemptions, specials for storm coverage

On a night when CBS opted for repeats and a special hour devoted to Hurricane Sandy and Fox aired an “X Factor” encore, reality shows “The Voice” on NBC and “Dancing With the Stars” were the beneficiaries.

No early numbers, meanwhile, could be considered as reliable as usual due to news preemptions and power outages on local stations in the East.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC’s “The Voice” dominated from 8 to 10 p.m. with a season-high 5.0 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and 12.8 million viewers overall. Also achieving a season high was ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” (2.7/6 in 18-49, 14.8 million viewers overall).

NBC’s “Revolution” (3.1/8 in 18-49, 8.4 million viewers overall) was down a bit from its recent average but was the broadcast leader in the hour in 18-49 and 25-54 (3.7/8), while ABC’s “Castle” hit a season high to rank second in demos and first in total viewers. In the same 10 p.m. hour, the CBS News special report on Hurricane Sandy averaged a 2.1/5 in 18-49 and 8.0 million viewers overall.

Earlier in the evening, CBS aired repeats of comedies “How I Met Your Mother” (2.4/6 in 18-49, 7.3 million viewers overall), “Partners” (1.8/4 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall), “2 Broke Girls” (2.5/6 in 18-49, 7.5 million viewers overall) and “Mike & Molly” (2.2/5 in 18-49, 6.9 million viewers overall).

Fox, which would have had a World Series game Monday if the Fall Classic hadn’t ended in the minimum four games on Sunday, instead aired a two-hour repeat of “The X Factor” (1.0/2 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall).

CW joined CBS in switching late to repeats, airing “90210” (0.4/1 in 18-49, 1.0 million viewers overall) and “Gossip Girl” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.7 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 4.4/11; ABC, 2.7/6; CBS, 2.2/5; Fox, 1.0/2; CW, 0.4/1.

In total viewers: ABC, 13.8 million; NBC, 11.4 million; CBS, 7.2 million; Fox, 2.7 million; CW, 0.8 million.
