Ratings: Fox’s ‘The Following’ Premiere Falls From Last Year

NBC tops Monday thanks to ”The Voice“

NBC won Monday’s primetime thanks to solid numbers from “The Voice.” For Fox, “The Following” season premiere dropped from a year-ago.

ABC was second in ratings; CBS was second in viewers.

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 11.6 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. scored a 3.8/11 and 14.3 million viewers — both highs on the evening. “Night Shift” at 10 got a 1.4/4 and 6.3 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.9/6 and third in viewers with 6.8 million. “The Bachelor: Women Tell All” at 8 received a 2.4/7 and 8.1 million viewers. A rerun followed.

Fox was third in ratings with a 1.8/5 and fourth in viewers with 5.4 million. “Gotham” at 8 had a 2.0/6 and 6.1 million viewers. “The Following” premiere at 9 got a 1.6/4 and 4.8 million viewers. The demo rating for the Kevin Bacon drama was down 20 percent from its first Monday episode last season. Its actual 2014 season premiere was on a Sunday out of the NFC Championship Game, making the debut-over-debut drop more severe but also a somewhat unfair comparison.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 1.5/5, but second in viewers with 7.8 million. In between repeats, “Mike & Molly” at 8:30 posted a 2.2/6 and 9.5 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 1.2/4 and in viewers with 3.1 million.

Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.4 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 683,000, airing reruns.
