Monday’s primetime proved that singing is slightly better than dancing, as NBC’s “The Voice” just barely topped ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” among total viewers. That said, CBS’s “Big Bang Theory” bested them all, so, you figure it out.

Still, NBC was first in ratings with a 3.3 rating/10 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 11.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 8 p.m., “The Voice” earned a 3.6/10 and 12.3 million viewers. At 10, “The Blacklist” received a 2.7/8 and 10.1 million viewers.
