“Dancing With the Stars” beat “The Voice” among total viewers last night — the first time that’s happened this season — when apparently the youngest and oldest NBC fans were out Trick-or-Treating.

Still, NBC and its key singing competition were the top broadcast choices among those 18-49, which is really what the advertisers care about. CBS actually topped ABC among that main demographic on Monday.

To be fair to “The Voice,” pretty much everything was predictably down last night, though to differing degrees.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. put up a 2.0/7 and 9.3 million viewers. At 10, “Timeless” got a 1.1/4 and 5.3 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.4/5 and third in viewers with 6.4 million. “Kevin Can Wait” at 8 had a 1.4/6 and 6.8 million viewers. At 8:30, “Man With a Plan” got a 1.5/5 and 6.7 million viewers. At 9, “2 Broke Girls” received a 1.5/5 and 5.8 million viewers. “The Odd Couple” at 9:30 managed a 1.2/4 and 5.1 million viewers. At 10, “Scorpion” closed primetime to a 1.4/5 and 7.4 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.2/4, but first and in viewers with 8.4 million. “DWTS” at 8 landed a 1.5/5 and 10.3 million viewers. Special “All Access Nashville: Celebrating the CMT Awards” followed at 10 with a 0.7/2 and 4.6 million viewers.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and in viewers with 3.2 million. “Gotham” at 8 posted a 0.9/4 and 3.1 million viewers. At 9, “Lucifer” matched that rating/share, but added about 400,000 total viewers.

Telemundo was fifth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and sixth in viewers with 1.54 million.

The CW and Univision tied for sixth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. CW was fifth in total viewers with 1.6 million, Univision was seventh with 1.49 million.

For CW, “Supergirl” at 8 had a 0.6/2 and 2.2 million viewers. At 9, “Jane The Virgin” ended up with a 0.4/1 and 1 million viewers.
