For the ninth consecutive in-season week, NBC topped the adults 18-49 demographic in every half hour of Monday’s primetime, with The Voice (3.7/9) the night’s No. 1 show in the demo. The Monday streak is NBC’s longest run at the top since Nielsen started its people meter sample back in 1987. However, the singing competition series continued its downward trend, falling 16% from last week to a season low for the night. It’s lead-out, Revolution (2.6/7), tied last week’s season low. Over on ABC, Dancing With The Stars (2.3/6) was up 10% from last week and Castle (2.0/5) was up 5%. DWTS was the most-watched show of the night with 14.1 million total viewers; ABC won the night in total viewers with 12.9 million, while NBC was second with 9.4 million.
Because of local NFL pre-emption in San Francisco, fast nationals for the first part of CBS’ Monday primetime may be inflated. How I Met Your Mother (3.0/8) was even with last week. Two and A Half Men (2.1/5) was a repeat, filling in the slot formerly occupied by the now cancelled Parrtners. Men was followed by 2 Broke Girls (3.4/8), which was up 6% from last week, and Mike & Molly (2.9/7), which slipped 3% from last week. Coming in at 10 PM, Hawaii Five-O (2.2./6) was up 5%, from a flat last week. Fox’s Bones (2.0/5) and The Mob Doctor (0.9/2) were both up from their November 12 shows, 5% and 13%, respectively. On the CW, 90210 (0.4/1) and Gossip Girl (0.3/1) were both down from last week.
