TV ratings: 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'The Voice' lead a quiet Monday, CBS comedies low
Monday's ratings didn't feature a whole lot to crow about for the networks, as "The Voice," "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" and three of CBS' four comedies were down from their most recent originals ( "2 Broke Girls" was even with its last new episode).
CBS and The CW may have been hurt a little by their decision to pull programming last week as Hurricane Sandy was hitting the East Coast. Those episodes aired Monday, but a lot of program guides didn't recognize them as new, which means DVRs may not have recorded them.
On FOX, "Bones" returned with an audience on par with its season average in the overnights. So did "The Mob Doctor," but that's not exactly good news.
ABC led the night in viewers, drawing 12.3 million people and an 8.2 rating/12 share in households. NBC came in second at 10.7 million viewers and a 6.3/9; its numbers could change slightly because its New Orleans station carried the "Monday Night Football" game. CBS (7.6 million, 4.9/7) finished third, followed by FOX (5.35 million, 3.3/5). The CW managed only 774,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.
NBC scored a win among adults 18-49 with a 4.0 rating, easily topping the 2.5 for second-place CBS. ABC (2.0) came in third, followed by FOX, 1.5, and The CW, 0.4.
