NBC extends record Monday win streak
Takes its ninth straight, a new high for the network
November 20, 2012
NBC extended its Monday winning streak to nine weeks, a new record for the network, even with hit reality show “The Voice” falling to a season low on the night.
The network won all six half hours on the night and has now won every Monday night this season, the first time it has achieved such a feat in the people meter era, which dates back more than two decades.
NBC averaged a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating and 7 share on the night, according to Nielsen overnights, 27 percent ahead of second-place CBS with a 2.6/7.
“Voice” was once again the night’s top show on broadcast with a 3.7 from 8 to 10 p.m., down 16 percent from last week. It peaked with a 4.1 in its final half hour.
Lead-out “Revolution” also won its timeslot with a 2.6, even to last week despite the weaker lead-in.
Elsewhere last night, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” was up 10 percent from last week to a 2.3 from 8 to 10 p.m. for the semifinal performance episode.
CBS’s “2 Broke Girls” at 9 p.m. rose 6 percent from last week, to a 3.4. Earlier in the night a repeat of “Two and a Half Men” replaced the now-canceled “Partners” at 8:30 p.m. It grew 0.2 percent over last week’s original “Partners.”
And Fox’s dramas were both up over last week, “Bones” growing 5 percent to a 2.0 and “The Mob Doctor” up 13 percent to a still-anemic 0.9.
NBC led the night among 18-49s with a 3.3 average overnight rating and a 9 share. CBS was second at 2.6/7, ABC third at 2.2/6, Univision fourth at 1.7/4, Fox fifth at 1.4/4, Telemundo sixth at 0.5/1 and CW seventh at 0.4/1.
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.
At 8 p.m. NBC was first with a 3.5 for "Voice," followed by CBS with a 2.5 for "How I Met Your Mother" (3.0) and the repeat of "Men" (2.1). ABC was third with a 2.2 for "Stars," Fox fourth with a 2.0 for "Bones," Univision fifth with a 1.9 for "Por Ella Soy Eva," and CW and Telemundo tied for sixth at 0.4, CW for "90210" and Telemundo for "Rosa Diamante."
NBC was first again at 9 p.m. with a 3.9 for more "Voice," while CBS remained second with a 3.1 for "2 Broke Girls" (3.4) and "Mike & Molly" (2.9). ABC was third with a 2.4 for more "Stars," Univision fourth with a 1.8 for "Amores Verdaderos," Fox fifth with a 0.9 for "The Mob Doctor," Telemundo sixth with a 0.5 for "Corazon Valiente" and CW seventh with a 0.3 for "Gossip Girl."
At 10 p.m. NBC led yet again with a 2.6 for "Revolution," with CBS second with a 2.2 for "Hawaii Five-0." ABC was third with a 2.0 for "Castle," Univision fourth with a 1.5 for "Amor Bravio" and Telemundo fifth with a 0.6 for "Pablo Escobar: El Patron del Mal" (0.7) and "El Rostro de la Venganza" (0.5).
ABC finished first for the night among households with an 8.4 average overnight rating and a 13 share. NBC was second at 5.7/9, CBS third at 5.4/8, Fox fourth at 3.1/5, Univision fifth at 2.0/3, Telemundo sixth at 0.7/1 and CW seventh at 0.5/1.
