NBC expected to rise in the finals as fast national numbers are understated

NBC predictably rolled over all comers on Monday night, earning a 3.8 rating/12 share in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic, and 13.8 million total viewers, according to preliminary numbers.

Due to the nature of the live Emmy Awards — which kicked off at 8 p.m. ET — those numbers are expected to increase when timezone-adjusted for the finals. The Emmys were the only show on NBC's primetime schedule.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.8/6 and third in viewers with 4.6 million. “MasterChef” at 8 earned a 2.0/7 and 5.3 million viewers. “Hotel Hell” at 9 received a 1.6/5 and 3.9 million viewers.
