TV Ratings: Dipping 'Voice' Leads Monday, 'Bones' Makes Steady Return
Though down from last week, the NBC competition dominates the night -- while "Revolution" and many CBS comedies drop to season lows.
With NFL preemptions in New Orleans, NBC's final ratings for Monday night are subject to change -- though the network is not in any danger of losing its edge with adults 18-49. Fast affiliate numbers give the two-hour episode of The Voice a 4.5 rating among adults 18-49, a six percent drop from last week's Monday outing. At 10 p.m., Revolution (2.9 adults rating) led the hour but was down a tenth of a point to a season low. NBC averaged 4.0 rating with the key demo and 10.7 million viewers.
CBS saw dips for all but freshman comedy Partners last night. How I Met Your Mother (2.8 adults rating) started the night with a season low, down 13 percent from its last original. Partners pulled a 2.1 rating in the demo. 2 Broke Girls (3.3 adults rating) was down just a tenth of a point from its last original, tying a series low, while Mike & Molly was down seven percent to a 2.8 rating in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 was off a tenth of a point for a 2.0 rating with 18-49-ers, giving CBS a 2.5 adults rating for the night and 7.6 million viewers.
Tying a performance show low of a 2.1 rating with adults 18-49, Dancing With The Stars was down nine percent from last week. Castle tied a series low of a 1.9 adults rating. ABC averaged a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49, but scored an easy win with total viewers -- 1.2 million.
On Fox, Bones and The Mob Doctor came back from their baseball-induced hiatus. Bones was even with its last original, pulling a 2.0 rating with adults 18-49. The Mob Doctor was up a tenth of a point to a 1.0 in the demo. Fox averaged a 1.5 adults rating and 5.4 million viewers.
90210 was even with a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49, and Gossip Girl was down a tenth to a 0.3 demo rating. The CW scored a 0.4 rating with 18-49-ers for the night and 774,000 viewers.
