TV Ratings: 'Voice,' 'Castle' lead Monday with 'Mob Doctor,' 'Partners' in jeopardy
'Revolution' again dominates its time period among young viewers
Follow HitFix: Follow @hitfix
"The Voice" dominated Monday night among young viewers and combined with "Revolution" to give NBC another rout in the key demographic. In fact, "The Voice" also edged out ABC's struggling "Dancing with the Stars" in total viewers, though "Castle" allowed the network to still claim Monday overall.
Meanwhile, the First Show Cancelled race continues to focus on FOX's "The Mob Doctor" and CBS' "Partners," which continued to droop in their third and second episodes, respectively.
[Note that The CW's Chicago affiliate was showing the Bears-Cowboys game, so take numbers for the network's IHeartRadio Music Festival with several grains of salt.]
