TV Ratings: 'The Voice' Grows With Final Performances, '2 Broke Girls' Ends Low
The spring shrink continues as many Monday series post losses from last week, though "Smash," "Castle" and "House" appear immune.
NBC reclaimed Monday from CBS this week, pulling a 3.1 rating among adults 18-49. It led the night with the final performance episode of The Voice's second season. The two-hour broadcast pulled a 3.7 rating in the demo -- that's up two-tenths of a point from last week's episode but seven-tenths shy of last season's performance finale. Smash saw a tenth of a point bump to a 1.9 rating with 18-49-ers. NBC averaged 9 million viewers for the night.
A one-hour 2 Broke Girls kicked off CBS' night. The broadcast was a season low for the freshman comedy, pulling a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49. Two and a Half Men (3.7 in the demo), Mike & Molly (3.1) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.3) also dropped but by far less. The network nabbed a 2.9 rating among 18-49 for the night and 9.6 million viewers.
Dancing With the Stars saw another series low for a performance show, dropping two-tenths of a point for a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. The broadcast bled into the 10 p.m. airing of the Castle season finale, which could slightly deflate its dominant 2.5 demo rating. ABC nabbed the night's most viewers (14.9 million) and came in third with the demo with a 2.6 rating.
On Fox, Bones dropped a tenth of a point, matching last week's fast affiliate score of a 1.9 in the demo. House held on to its 2.1 adults 18-49 rating with just two more episodes to go. The network averaged a 2.0 in the demo and 6.5 million viewers.
Gossip Girl dropped two-tenths for a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating on The CW, while Hart of Dixie held on to the previous episode's 0.6 in the demo.
