ESPN's coverage of Monday Night Football saw broadcast net preemptions in Baltimore (NBC) and Detroit (ABC), so Fast National returns are approximate.
That said, The Voice led the night with a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49. Down a tenth of a point from the prior Monday, the episode was down nine-tenths of a point from last December's penultimate episode -- a series low for performance finales. The Sing-Off (2.2 adults) was down two-tenths of a point from its showing last Monday, and NBC led the night with an average 3.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 11.1 million viewers.
How I Met Your Mother (2.7 adults) was off two-tenths of a point from its last original for a season low, while 2 Broke Girls (2.3 adults) dropped four-tenths to tie its series low. Mike & Molly (2.2 adults) improved two-tenths and Mom (1.9 adults) fell by the same measure. Hostages (1.2 adults) was up by a tenth of a point. CBS took a 1.9 rating with adults 18-49 and 6.9 million viewers for the night.
Fox's new episode of Almost Human (1.6 adults) dropped two-tenths of a point for a low. The network, which also aired special Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas (0.9 adults) averaged a 1.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers.
Holiday special repeats Prep & Landing (1.0 adults) led into a new The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.2 adults) on ABC, down two-tenths from last Monday. The network pulled a 1.1 adults rating and 4.4 million viewers for the night.
The CW had repeats of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer and The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to the tune of a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.1 million viewers.
