After a couple weeks behind "Castle
" in total viewers, "The Blacklist
" recaptured its 10 p.m. crown overall, posting week-to-week gains. Ultimately, that shift made very little difference as even a weak "Dancing with the Stars" helped ABC stay atop the Monday ratings overall and "The Voice
" helped NBC to its normal commanding Monday win.
In their last week paired together before next Monday's "Almost Human" premiere, FOX's "Bones
" and "Sleepy Hollow
" were steady.
All numbers are, of course, subject to change, since some NFL preemptions are probably messing with the figures. [The CW had the Monday game in Miami. I'm not sure who had it in Tampa, or if even people would admit to watching the Buccaneers to make any difference.]
On to those numbers...
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 3.5 rating for Monday night, easily beating FOX's 2.3 rating in the key demographic. CBS was third with a 2.0 key demo rating, followed by ABC's 1.8 key demo rating and the 0.4 key demo rating for The CW.
Overall, though, ABC averaged an estimated 11.7 million viewers and a 7.7 rating/12 share, edging out the 7.0/11 and 11.5 million viewers averaged by NBC for Monday primetime. There was a big drop to FOX's 7.17 million viewers and 4.3/6, compared to the 4.4/7 and 6.79 million viewers for CBS. The CW averaged a 0.7/1 and 1.03 million viewers.
8 p.m. - "Dancing with the Stars" let ABC win the 8 p.m. hour overall with 12.3 million viewers, but finished fourth for the hour with a 1.7 key demo rating, way below last week's numbers.
