Ratings: NBC Wins Easy Despite Lowered ‘Voice,’ ‘Mike & Molly’ Has Lowest Premiere

ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” continues to rake in the viewers, but not the ratings

NBC handily won Monday with its one-two punch of “The Voice” and “The Blacklist.”

Although “The Voice” dropped from from last week’s 4.2 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic to a 3.6, NBC still beat second place Fox by a 48 percent margin, according to preliminary numbers.

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.4 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 11.2 million. At 8 p.m., “The Voice” earned the aforementioned 3.6/9 — its Monday season low, but still the highest-rating of the night — and 11.6 million viewers. “The Blacklist” at 10 received a 2.9/8 — its lowest rating to date — and 10.3 million viewers.
