Oct 14, 2014  •  Post A Comment

NBC rolled to a comfortable ratings win Monday night as its singing competition “The Voice” ticked up, based on Nielsen overnights for the key 18-49 demo.

TVbytheNumbers.com reports that the two-hour “The Voice” was up 5% from a week ago with a 3.9 average rating in viewers 18-49. Leading out from it, “The Blacklist” continued to show strength with a 2.8, rising 8%.

Second-place CBS had its numbers impacted by a “Monday Night Football” pre-emption in San Francisco, meaning the figures are likely to be adjusted downward. In preliminary returns, “The Big Bang Theory” came in as the top show on broadcast prime with a 4.6 average in 18-49, up 2% from a week ago.

Elsewhere on CBS, “Scorpion” had a 2.4 in the 18-49 demo, slipping 4% from last week, and “NCIS: L.A.” registered a 1.6, equaling the series low set a week ago.

Fox got a 2.4 out of “Gotham,” 4% below last week’s number in 18-49, and a 1.7 for “Sleepy Hollow,” the same as last week.

ABC’s prime-time lineup matched last week’s numbers in 18-49: a 1.9 for “Dancing with the Stars” and a 2.0 for “Castle.”

The new CW show “Jane the Virgin” delivered a 0.6 in adults 18-49, with the disclaimer that CW had a football pre-emption in St. Louis.

For prime time overall, NBC’s 3.5 average is the best of the bunch in the 18-49 demo, followed by CBS (2.6 average), Fox (2.0), ABC (1.9), Univision (1.1) and CW (0.6). Total viewers saw a close three-way race, with NBC slightly ahead with 11.924 million, followed by ABC (11.456 million), CBS (11.435 million), Fox (5.540 million), Univision (2.827 million) and CW (1.483 million).
