TV ratings: '2 Broke Girls' and 'Dancing With the Stars' hit season highs Monday, 'The Voice' rises too
A weak matchup on "Monday Night Football" may have been a boon to the broadcast networks, as four of the five nets improved on their ratings from last week. ABC was down because its two-hour "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" special didn't do much, but "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" hit a season high with its final performance show.
Three of CBS' shows -- "2 Broke Girls," "Mike & Molly" and "Hawaii Five-0" -- also hit season highs in both viewers and adults 18-49, while "How I Met Your Mother" had its best showing since the season premiere. NBC, meanwhile, also saw "The Voice" and "Revolution" improve over last week. (The Peacock's Charlotte affiliate carried the "MNF" game, but even factoring that out, the network will likely end up ahead of last week.)
NBC averaged just over 11 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/10 share in households for the evening. CBS (10.15 million, 6.4/10) was a strong second, beating out ABC (9.3 million, 6.1/9). FOX took fourth with 6 million viewers and a 3.5/5. The CW (939,000, 0.7/1) trailed.
NBC also won the adults 18-49 title with a 3.8 rating. CBS finished second in the demographic with a 3.1. ABC and FOX tied for third at 1.7, and The CW posted a 0.5.
