TV Ratings: 'The Voice' Tops Broadcast, 'Monday Night Football' Slips
The Voice led Monday's broadcast ratings across the board, while Monday Night Football took top honors on cable despite multi-week lows. Cable news also largely returned to its pre-election state, with Fox News reclaiming the top spot after CNN led several days last week.
The Voice was down a little week to week, but its 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.27 million total viewers led everything else on the broadcast networks in primetime. Weakest Link followed with a 0.5 in the demo and 3.4 million viewers, also down a bit from its last outing.
ESPN's Monday Night Football telecast easily led all of Nielsen-measured TV in primetime, but its 9.83 million viewers and 2.8 in adults 18-49 are five-week lows. The game pitted two teams with sub-.500 records, the New England Patriots and New York Jets.
Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight was otherwise the most watched cable show with 4.54 million viewers, in line with its September average but down from more recent weeks. Fox New averaged 3.92 million viewers in primetime to 2.87 million for MSNBC and 2.61 million for CNN. The latter two were up some from their October averages.
Elsewhere on the broadcast networks, ABC's Dancing With the Stars ticked up to a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.97 million viewers, vs. 0.8 and 5.55 million last week. The Good Doctor (0.6, 4.76 million) was fairly steady in its second week.
