With the exception of Sunday when NBC has football, no night has been as dominated by a network this fall more than Monday by NBC. Last night,”The Voice” and hot rookie drama “The Blacklist” put the Peacock comfortably atop the night in key demos, even if ABC did make it a tight race in total viewers.
In adults 18-49, NBC has now been the Big Four leader in all 30 Monday half-hours this season as “The Voice” (4.2 rating/11 share in adults 18-49, 13.4 million viewers overall) and “Blacklist” (3.0/8 in 18-49, 10.6 million viewers overall) were in control once again and stood as the top two programs. “Voice” was the night’s No. 1 entertainment series in 18-49 and 25-54 (5.1/12) while the James Spader-fronted drama was the top drama in these categories.
Elsewhere, according to preliminary Nielsen estimates, CBS saw improvement for first-year shows “Mom” (2.4/6 in 18-49, 7.8 million viewers overall) and “Hostages” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall), though these numbers are inflated because the net’s averages include a preemption in Minneapolis for the Vikings’ NFL game. “Mom” was up four-tenths week-to-week, so some growth is still likely, while “Hostages” is up two-tenths and is expected to come in on par or slightly below last week.
