NBC dominates Monday with ‘The Voice’
October 31, 2012
On a night preempted in many markets by Hurricane Sandy coverage, NBC was an easy winner with the combination of “The Voice” and “Revolution” dominating Monday night.
NBC averaged a 4.2 adults 18-49 rating and 11 share in primetime, according to Nielsen final ratings, nearly doubling No. 2 ABC’s 2.3/6.
“Voice” was the night’s top show with a 4.8 from 8 to 10. Lead-out “Revolution” was the night’s top scripted show with a 3.0, though there wasn’t much competition.
CBS’s entire comedy lineup was in reruns, and it preempted 10 p.m. drama “Hawaii Five-0” for a CBS News special on Sandy.
ABC’s “Castle” was the only other original scripted show on Monday night, drawing a 2.2. The network’s “Dancing with the Stars” drew a 2.3 from 8 to 10.
Fox was in reruns Monday as well because it was supposed to air game five of the World Series, which wrapped up in just four games on Sunday.
With NBC well out ahead and ABC in second, CBS finished third for the night with a 2.1/5. Fox was fourth with a 0.7/2 and the CW was fifth with a 0.3/1. Ratings for the Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo were not available at press time.
As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won't be available for several weeks. Forty-six percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.
NBC’s “Voice” led at 8 p.m. with a 4.6. ABC’s “Stars” was second with a 2.3. CBS’s repeats of “How I Met Your Mother” (2.3) and “Partners” (1.8) took third with a 2.1. Fox’s rerun of “The X Factor” placed fourth with a 0.8 and the CW was fifth with a 0.3.
At 9 p.m. “Voice” grew to a 5.0. CBS’s “2 Broke Girls” (2.5) and “Mike & Molly” (2.2) repeats were second with a 2.4, just ahead of the second hour of ABC’s “Stars” with a 2.3. Fox’s “Factor” repeat took fourth with a 0.7, and the CW’s “Gossip Girl” was fifth with a 0.3.
NBC’s “Revolution” was first at 10 p.m. with a 3.0. ABC’s “Castle” was second with a 2.2, followed by CBS’s “Hurricane Sandy” with a 2.1.
Household ratings were also unavailable.
