The Monday TV ratings for April 13th are in; here are some of the highlights:
- Starting off primetime at 8 p.m., The Voice held on to its crown for NBC, helping the peacock network win with adults in the key 18-49 demo, as it brought in a 2.8 rating and 10.83 million viewers (although down 3 percent from last week).
- Dancing with the Stars on ABC was up 5 percent, and held its trend of a lower rating (2.1) but more viewers (13.63 million) than The Voice, which helped ABC win the night with total viewers.
- Fox’s Gotham returned to a 1.5 rating and 4.42 million viewers, down 25 percent from its last original episode, proving once again that extended breaks throughout the season do nothing but harm the ratings.
The CW was preempted by baseball in the New York market, which may lead to some adjustments to their numbers. But for now, they can enjoy some inflated returns, like The Originals at 8 p.m. being up 20 percent to a 0.6 rating and 1.4 million viewers.
- Jane the Virgin was also up 50 percent (probably artificially) at 9 p.m. to a 0.6 rating and 1.46 million viewers.
- Winning the 9 p.m. hour was CBS’s Scorpion, which was down 5 percent to a 1.9 rating and 9.4 million viewers.
- Fox’s The Following fell in the middle, but was up 22 percent to a 1.1 rating and 3.49 million viewers.
- At 10 p.m., NCIS: Los Angeles was up 7 percent to 1.6 rating and 9.17 million viewers for CBS, while NBC’s The Night Shift stayed steady with a 1.4 rating and 5.8 million viewers.
