TV ratings: 'The Voice' and 'Dancing With the Stars' lead a Sandy-impacted Monday
Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to millions of people on the East Coast Monday, and a number of stations pre-empted regular programming for storm coverage. CBS and The CW also opted to air reruns from 8 to 10 p.m. instead of new episodes of their shows -- all of which will have an impact on the ratings.
As things stand now, though, "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" gave ABC a win in total viewers for the night, while "The Voice" led NBC to the front of the adults 18-49 pack.
ABC averaged 13.8 million viewers and an 8.9 rating/13 share in primetime, topping NBC's 11.4 million viewers and 6.5/10. CBS (7.2 million, 4.6/7) came in third. FOX (2.7 million, 1.6/2) was a distant fourth, and The CW trailed with about 825,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.
NBC scored a 4.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, easily beating ABC's 2.7. CBS finished third in the demo at 2.2, followed by FOX, 1.0, and The CW, 0.4.
