TV Ratings: 'Voice' Tops Monday as 'Castle,' 'Dancing' and '2 Broke Girls' All Improve

The NBC lineup wins the night, while the shuffled CBS comedy sees some improvement in new slot.
"The Voice"

Driven by a steady episode of The Voice and a slightly boosted Blacklist, NBC nabbed another Monday night -- one month into the new fall season. The two-hour battle round of the singing competition came in just a tenth of a point shy of last week's outing, averaging a 4.5 rating with adults 18-49. Blacklist (3.2 adults) was up by the same measure, though affiliate NFL preemptions leave the two's scores subject to change. NBC averaged a 4.0 adults rating and 13 million viewers for the night.

ABC saw boosts throughout its lineup, with Dancing With the Stars (2.1 adults) up a tenth of a point in its two-hour episode, and Castle (2.2 adults) jumping three-tenths. ABC pulled a 2.1 adults rating and 12.2 million viewers.

How I Met Your Mother, steady with a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49, kicked off CBS' slightly tweaked lineup. It led into 2 Broke Girls' (2.5 adults) new slot, up two-tenths in the move. Mom (1.9 adults) shed two-tenths without an original lead-in, while Hostages (1.2 adults) held last week's score. The net averaged a 2.0 rating with adults 18-49 and 7 million viewers.

Hart of Dixie (0.4 adults) held even on The CW, while Beauty and the Beast (0.3 adults) was off by a tenth. The CW brought in a 0.4 adults rating and 997,000 viewers over the night.
