TV Ratings: 'The Voice' cruises past ABC's 'Bachelorette' premiere on Monday
'Goodwin Games' continues to struggle
Even with its lowest rated performance episode ever, "The Voice" had no trouble leading NBC past ABC and the latest "Bachelorette" premiere on Monday night.
"The Bachelorette" was well below the premiere of last summer's installment, though that's a woefully irrelevant comparison given that last year's launch was done in-season after a relatively robust episode of "Dancing with the Stars."
There weren't many other Monday notables, but FOX's DOA "The Goodwin Games" continued to struggle in its second airing. In fact, FOX finished behind The CW overall for Monday night.
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 2.6 rating for Monday night, well ahead of ABC's 1.6 rating in the key demographic. CBS averaged a 1.0 key demo rating, followed by FOX's 0.6 key demo rating and The CW's 0.4 key demo rating.
Overall, NBC averaged an estimated 9.41 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/9 share for Monday, easily beating ABC's 3.9/6 and 5.79 million viewers. CBS was third with 4.35 million viewers and a 2.9/5. The CW averaged 1.53 million viewers and a 1.0/2, compared to the 1.0/2 and 1.44 million viewers.
[Univision averaged 3.44 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 for Monday night.]
