Ratings: CBS’ ‘Life in Pieces’ Crumbles 23 Percent From Premiere

NBC easily tops Monday despite ”Blindspot“ slip

NBC’s “Blindspot” dipped 16 percent from last week, which was better on a percentage basis than CBS’s “Life in Pieces” (down 23 percent) and Fox’s “Minority Report” (down 18 percent). As such, NBC easily topped the night in the key 18-49 demographic — the network’s total viewer victory over an NFL-boosted ABC finished far tighter.

The “Life in Pieces” drop was directly in line with those slides for “The Big Bang Theory” and “Scorpion.”

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.0 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 10.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a 3.3/10 and 11.8 million viewers. “Blindspot” at 10 posted a 2.6/8 and 9.1 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.8/6 and second in viewers with 10.4 million. “Dancing With the Stars” at 8 posted a 1.9/6 and 11.7 million viewers. “Castle” at 10 received a 1.6/5 and 7.8 million viewers.
