TV ratings: 'The Voice' steady Monday, but 'Smash' drops some more
NBC led its third straight Monday night thanks to "The Voice," which was pretty steady compared to last week, falling just one tenth of a point in adults 18-49 and by about 350,000 total viewers.
"Smash," however, dipped some more at 10 p.m., ceding the top spot in adults 18-49 to "Hawaii Five-0" and taking a pretty good-sized dip in its second half-hour. Elsewhere, "Alcatraz" continued its downward trend on FOX, but the CBS comedy block bounced back some after last week's lower-than-usual performance. "Castle" was also up a little for ABC.
NBC finished the night with 12.6 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/11 share in households. CBS (11 million, 6.7/10) came in second, beating out ABC (8.6 million, 5.7/9). FOX took fourth with 6.5 million viewers and a 3.9/6. The CW (1.25 million, 0.9/1) was down some from last week.
The adults 18-49 title also went to NBC, which drew a 4.6 rating in the demographic. CBS finished second at 3.5. ABC, 2.4, came in third, a little bit ahead of FOX's 2.1. The CW delivered a 0.5.
