TV Ratings: 'Dancing' Drops Worsen, 'Hawaii' and 'Revolution' Gain
The May sweep moves on with season (and series) lows for several, while NBC easily tops the night in adults 18-49 with a dipping "Voice."
Fast National returns give a Monday demo win to NBC, though The Voice was down again. Pulling a 3.9 rating with adults 18-49, the two-hour episode came in four tenths of a point shy of last week for a season low. Revolution (2.1 adults) was up, however, growing three tenths of a point to top the 10 p.m. hour across broadcast networks. NBC averaged a 3.3 rating in the key demo and 10 million viewers.
Netting an average 2.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 7.5 million viewers across the night, CBS was largely in line with last Monday. How I Met Your Mother (2.6 adults), off a tenth of a point, tied a steady 2 Broke Girls (2.6 adults) as the night's top scripted performer. Rules of Engagement (2.1 adults) was also flat, while Mike & Molly (2.2 adults) dropped two tenths of a point to tie a series low. Hawaii Five-0 (1.9 adults) was up two tenths of a point from the previous original.
ABC saw Dancing With the Stars fall below a 2.0 adults rating for the first time ever for a performance show. If it stands, the 1.9 rating (a two tenths drop from last week) will mark another series low. Castle (2.0 adults) was steady with last week, giving the network an average 2.0 adults rating and a dominant 12.2 million viewers for the night.
Fox aired the special Rihanna 777 (0.8 adults) and an encore of Bones to the tune of a 0.7 rating with adults 18-49 and 2.1 million viewers.
Both Oh Sit and 90210 were even with last week's 0.3 ratings among adults 18-49, giving the the network an average 755,000 viewers for the night.
Univision averaged a 1.6 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers.
