TV Ratings: CBS Plays With Monday Lineup, 'The Voice' Leads
A two-hour Voice reaped a steady and dominant 2.1 rating among adults 19-49 on Monday night. With Blindspot at 10 p.m., averaging a 0.7 rating in the key demo, the network also locked a nightly win for the broadcast network.
Dancing With the Stars, the night's most-watched program with 11.6 million viewers, also nabbed a steady 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 — while Castle nabbed a 1.0 rating with the demo.
CBS got a little playful with its Monday lineup in the wake of SuperGirl and Scorpion wrapping their respective seasons. Back-to-back episodes of Mike & Molly pulled 1.3 and 1.4 ratings in the key demo — and, at 9 p.m., a Big Bang repeat led into a considerably softer The Odd Couple (1.3 adult). NCIS: Los Angeles tied with Blindspot for a 1.3 rating in the key demo.
An even Gotham (1.2 adults) did little to goose the premiere of Houdini & Doyle. The event series, a British co-production, entered with just a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 2.6 million viewers.
Both Reign and Jane the Virgin held with 0.3 ratings among adults 18-49 on the CW.
