TV Ratings: 'The Voice' finale performances rise for NBC Monday
'The Winner Is...' preview is also up for NBC
"The Voice" got a bump for the performance portion of its season finale on Monday, leading an NBC sweep in all measures for primetime.
Against the "Voice" finale, all originals were down, which basically means ABC's "The Bachelorette" and "Mistresses," though it should be noted that "The Voice" was also down either from last spring's finale or last winter's finale.
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 3.0 rating for Monday night, doubling up the 1.5 rating for ABC in the key demographic. CBS' 0.9 key demo rating, the 0.6 key demo rating for FOX and The CW's 0.2 key demo rating trailed.
Overall, NBC averaged an estimated 10.54 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/11 share for Monday, again doubling (and then some) the 3.4/6 and 4.87 million viewers for ABC. CBS was third with 4.14 million viewers and a 2.8/5, far ahead of the 0.9/1 and 1.46 million viewers for FOX. The CW averaged a 0.4/1 and 640,000 viewers.
