The Voice rebounded from last week's season-low numbers and led Monday's ratings across the board. American Idol also improved and finished as close to its NBC rival as it has so far this season.

A "cross battles" episode of The Voice posted a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 (up from 1.2 a week ago) and 7.59 million viewers (on par with last week's 7.62 million). Idol, meanwhile, scored a 1.2 in the demo (+0.1 versus a week ago) and 7.05 million viewers, up from 6.49 million and the show's biggest Monday audience this season. What was a more than 3 million-viewer spread between the shows during their first head-to-head airing four weeks ago is down to 535,000.

At 10 p.m., NBC's The Enemy Within posted a 0.6, tying last week's season low. The Fix held at 0.5 on ABC.

Fox's 911 was the night's top scripted show in adults 18-49 with a 1.1, down 0.2 from a week ago. The Resident also fell two-tenth of a point, hitting a series low of 0.7. 

CBS' The Code fell sharply in viewers from its NCIS-boosted Tuesday premiere last week, dropping 46 percent from 8.13 million to 4.42 million Monday. It also lost 0.2 in adults 18-49, finishing with a 1.6. The Neighborhood (1.0), Man With a Plan (0.8) and Bull (0.6) were all in line with their most recent episodes.

At The CW, Legends of Tomorrow held steady at 0.3, but Arrow dipped to tie its series low of 0.2. 

NBC led the night in adults 18-49 with a 1.1 rating. ABC and Fox tied for second place at 0.9. CBS finished fourth with a 0.7, followed by Telemundo, 0.5, and Univision, 0.4. The CW trailed at 0.2.
