TV ratings: 'The Voice' and 'Revolution' lead Monday for NBC while 'Dancing With the Stars' struggles
NBC scored another win among adults 18-49 Monday night as "The Voice" rose a little bit over last week's numbers and "Revolution" dipped only slightly, maintaining better than 90 percent of its demographic rating.
Elsewhere, "Dancing With the Stars" drew one of its smallest audiences ever, although it and "Castle" combined to give ABC the biggest viewer total for the night. CBS' comedy block fell slightly -- as expected following premiere week -- although "Partners" again dropped significantly in between "How I Met Your Mother" and "2 Broke Girls." The CW got OK numbers from its "iHeartRadio Festival" special.
ABC averaged 11.6 million viewers and a 7.7 rating/12 share in households for the night, edging NBC's 11 million and 6.6/10 for the top spot. CBS (7.8 million, 5.0/8) finished third. FOX (5.2 million, 3.2/5) came in fourth, and The CW drew 1.7 million viewers and a 1.0/2.
NBC easily won the adults 18-49 race with a 4.0 rating. CBS finished second in the demographic with a 2.6, topping ABC's 2.0. FOX scored a 1.6 to finish fourth, and The CW drew a 0.7.
