TV ratings: 'The Voice' steady Monday, but 'Smash' drops some moreAdd to Favorites | The Voice
NBC led its third straight Monday night thanks to "The Voice," which was pretty steady compared to last week, falling just one tenth of a point in adults 18-49 and by about 350,000 total viewers.
"Smash," however, dipped some more at 10 p.m., ceding the top spot in adults 18-49 to "Hawaii Five-0" and taking a pretty good-sized dip in its second half-hour. Elsewhere, "Alcatraz" continued its downward trend on FOX, but the CBS comedy block bounced back some after last week's lower-than-usual performance. "Castle" was also up a little for ABC.
NBC finished the night with 12.6 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/11 share in households. CBS (11 million, 6.7/10) came in second, beating out ABC (8.6 million, 5.7/9). FOX took fourth with 6.5 million viewers and a 3.9/6. The CW (1.25 million, 0.9/1) was down some from last week.
The adults 18-49 title also went to NBC, which drew a 4.6 rating in the demographic. CBS finished second at 3.5. ABC, 2.4, came in third, a little bit ahead of FOX's 2.1. The CW delivered a 0.5.
