NBC’s The Voice (1.7 rating in 18-49 demographic, 2.93 million viewers) was No. 1 for the night, besting ABC’s American Idol (1.3, 6.85M) by 31% in the demo and 2.4M total viewers in primetime. On its penultimate Monday before becoming a Sunday-only broadcast to make way for Dancing With the Stars, ABC’s singing competition reboot dropped 19% from its previous Monday and tied its Monday series low in Live+Same Day, though ABC noted the previous Monday’s Idol adjusted up a tenth in afternoon updates.
NBC’s freshman Good Girls (1.0, 4.45M) took 10 PM in the demo; it was the night’s No. 1 scripted show in that metric. The Season 4 finale of CBS’ Scorpion (0.7, 5.12M) took over at 10 in total viewers.
CBS’ comedy slate Kevin Can Wait (0.9, 5.29M), Man With a Plan (0.8, 5.09M), Superior Donuts (0.8, 4.52M) and Living Biblically (0.6, 3.54M) stayed steady week to week. Ditto Fox’s Lucifer (0.7, 3.17M) and The Resident (0.9, 4.29M).
Supergirl (0.5, 1.90M) returned slightly weaker to CW’s slate, though its performance at 8 PM helped breathed some ratings live into iZombie (0.3, 850K) compared to previous week.
NBC (1.5, 7.64M) won the night among the Big 4 networks in both metrics, including six of six half-hours in the key age bracket. ABC (1.1, 5.96M) finished most closely in both. Fox (0.8, 3.73M) finished third in the demo, while CBS (0.7, 4.78M) took that honor in total viewers. CW (0.4, 1.38M) followed.
