TV Ratings: 'The Voice' Dips Against Broadcast Repeats, NCAA Basketball
There was not much in the way of original episodes from the broadcast networks Sunday night. Facing increased cable competition from the NCAA Basketball Championship Game, the first Monday of April saw only ABC and NBC offer up fresh material.
The Voice still led the night for NBC, averaging a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, though it was down from last week's comparable episode by four-tenths of a point in the key demo. At 10 p.m., Blindspot dropped two-tenths of a point to a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.
Over on ABC, Dancing With the Stars held steady with a 1.8 rating in the key demo and saw a more significant viewer edge over The Voice with 11.6 million viewers — an advantage of 1.2 million. Castle netted a steady 1.2 rating in the key demo.
CBS, Fox and the CW all aired repeats. TBS' ratings for the conclusion of March Madness will be out later on Tuesday.
