TV Ratings: 'The Voice' and 'Dancing With the Stars' Lead Monday
With the approaching Thanksgiving holiday about to take a bite out of broadcast's primetime viewership, Monday brought another win for NBC's The Voice — albeit down a shade from last week's outing.
The two-hour singing competition averaged a dominant 2.1 rating among adults 18-49, off two-tenths of a point in the key demo. That gave it a narrower-than-typical margin of victory over Dancing With the Stars. The ABC competition fetched a 1.8 rating in the demo, likely slightly bolstered by NFL preemptions in San Francisco. Still, its nearly 12 million viewers will leave it far and away the night's most-watched telecast.
The two networks were far more spread out during the 10 p.m. hour, when Conviction held its 0.8 rating on ABC — and Timeless scored a 1.2 rating in the key demo on NBC. CBS drama Scorpion matched NBC in the hour, tying among adults 18-49 and easily winning overall audience with nearly 7 million viewers.
Elsewhere on CBS, comedies Kevin Can Wait (1.5 adults), Man With a Plan (1.3 adults), 2 Broke Girls (1.4 adults) and The Odd Couple (1.1 adults) all held steady with last week.
Speaking of steady, both Gotham and Lucifer saw little movement on Fox, with respective demo scores of a 1.1 and 1.0 rating among adults 18-49.
The CW also saw lifts from NFL preemption, making early scores from Supergirl and Jane the Virgin too preliminary.
