ABC's new drama "Mistresses" failed to find a faithful audience with its series premiere Monday night, while NBC's "Revolution" ended its season with modest week-to-week growth. Meanwhile, "The Voice" remained steady with last week to take the night's top numbers and propel NBC to an overall win, according to preliminary numbers.
NBC was first in both the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic and total viewers with a 2.8 rating/8 share and 9.5 million. "The Voice" at 8 p.m. was even with last week — which was a series low for performance shows but still drew a 3.2/9 and 11 million total viewers, the night's best showings in both categories. The season finale of "Revolution" at 10 ticked up 5 percent from last week's airing for a 2.0/5 with 6.3 million total viewers.
ABC was second in ratings and total viewers with a 1.5/4 and 5.2 million. "The Bachelorette" at 8 dropped off 11 percent from last week to hit a series low of 1.7/5 with 5.6 million total viewers. The series premiere of "Mistresses" at 10 posted a 1.2/3, the network's lowest-rated premiere for a scripted series since June 2011's premiere of "Combat Hospital," and took 4.4 million total viewers.
Univision drew third place in ratings and fourth in total viewers with a 1.4/4 and 3.5 million.
CBS, which aired repeats throughout the night, was fourth in ratings and third in total viewers with a 0.9/3 and 4.5 million.
Fox was fifth in ratings and total viewers with a 0.7/2 and 1.7 million. The network aired repeats aside from "Goodwin Games" at 8:30, which was even with last week for a 0.6/2 and had 1.7 million total viewers, and Charlie Sheen's FX series "Anger Management" at 9:30, which posted a 0.7/2 with 1.6 million total viewers.
