TV Ratings: 'Stalker' Sees Some Improvement in Monday Move
Coverage of unrest in Baltimore, Maryland prompted news preemptions Monday night on ABC, CBS and NBC. Though there may be some adjustments, they won't have any effect on NBC's nightly win among adults 18-49. The net had even episodes of The Voice (2.6 adults) and The Night Shift (1.3 adults).
ABC, which won the night in total viewers, had steady outings of Dancing With the Stars (2.0 adults) and Castle (1.3 adults).
Stalker returned from its lengthy hiatus to its temporary home for the last three episodes of its freshman season. The 9 p.m. telecast improved two-tenths of a point from its last showing to a 1.4 rating with adults 18-49, the same score shared by NCIS: Los Angeles at 10 p.m. Earlier in the night, 2 Broke Girls (1.7 adults) dropped four-tenths of a point and Mike & Molly (1.8 adults) each fell two-tenths of a point.
Both Gotham (1.5 adults) and The Following (1.2 adults) held on Fox, as did The Originals (0.5 adults) and Jane the Virgin (0.4 adults) on The CW.
