Fox’s Batman prequel “Gotham” grappled with a 25 percent demo drop in its return from hiatus on Monday night, falling to a 1.5 key demo rating and 4.4 million total viewers.

As is standard this time of year on Mondays, NBC topped the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic thanks to “The Voice,” while ABC pulled in the most total viewers due to its older-skewing “Dancing With the Stars.”

In additional news worth breaking out, CW’s “Jane the Virgin” recovered by 50 percent from a terrible low last week. That said, last Monday was the evening of the NCAA Tournament Final on CBS, which also explains why Fox’s “The Following” rebounded this week.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.4 rating/8 share in the demo and second in total viewers with an average of 9.2 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a 2.8/9 — best of the night — and 10.8 million viewers. “Night Shift” at 10 received a 1.4/4 and 5.8 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.8/6 and third in viewers with 8.6 million. At 8, “2 Broke Girls” had a 1.8/7 and 7.1 million viewers. “Mike & Molly” at 8:30 got a 1.8/6 and 7.5 million viewers. “Scorpion” at 9 posted a 1.9/6 and 9.4 million viewers. “NCIS: Los Angeles” at 10 received a 1.6/5 and 9.2 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.7/6, but first in viewers with 11.2 million. “Dancing With the Stars” at 8 had a 2.1/7 and primetime-best 13.6 million viewers. A repeat followed.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 1.3/4 and in viewers with 4 million. After “Gotham,” “The Following” at 9 got a 1.1/3 and 3.5 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 2.2 million.

The CW was sixth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.4 million. “The Originals” at 8 had a 0.6/2 and 1.4 million viewers. At 9, “Jane The Virgin” recovered to a 0.6/2 and 1.5 million viewers.
