TV ratings: 'The Voice' drops but still leads Monday in 18-49, 'How I Met Your Mother' up
"The Voice" fell a little bit Monday compared to last week's ratings, but it still easily led the night among adults 18-49 and carried NBC to another win in the demographic. Per usual, ABC led the night in viewers thanks to "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars."
Elsewhere, "How I Met Your Mother" was up a little bit over last week, but the rest of CBS' lineup was either flat or down a little bit. "Bones" and "The Mob Doctor" were both off a bit for FOX.
ABC averaged 13.1 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/13 share among households in primetime (its numbers may change slightly as affiliates in Pittsburgh and Kansas City carried the "Monday Night Football" telecast). NBC (10.1 million, 5.9/9) finished second overall, comfortably ahead of CBS (7.9 million, 5.1/8). FOX came in fourth with 5.05 million viewers and a 3.1/4. The CW drew just above 1 million viewers and a 0.7/1.
NBC posted a 3.8 rating among adults 18-49 to score an easy demographic win. CBS took second with a 2.5, beating ABC's 2.2. FOX averaged 1.4 in the 18-49 demo, while The CW came in at 0.5.
