The Monday TV ratings for March 9th are in, here are some of the highlights:
- Though NBC’s The Voice was down three tenths from last week’s rating, it managed a 3.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, and 13.52 million viewers at 8 p.m., helping NBC win the night overall with adults and with viewers.
- Also at 8 p.m., ABC’s The Bachelor finale was up from last week to a 2.7 and 9.5 million viewers, but down from last year’s Juan Pablo-starring finale (probably because JP was more unpredictable than Prince Farming). However, the After the Final Rose special at 10 p.m. kept its audience and even improved upon those numbers, with a 2.7 rating and 9.66 million viewers (who saw the announcement that there will be two Bachelorettes next season … at least, for one night. Dramaaaa!)
- The Originals returned at 8 p.m. on the CW to a series low 0.5 and 1.36 million viewers, almost identical to Jane the Virgin‘s numbers at 9 p.m. (0.5 and 1.29 million); both series were down a tenth from their last original episodes.
- The Following at 9 p.m. didn’t fare so well on Fox, where it hit a series low 1.1 rating, and 3.45 million viewers, down 31% from its third season premiere.
- CBS’s Scorpion, though, is staying steady with a 2.0 rating, and a large 10.43 million viewer audience at 9 p.m. A similar story was true at 10 p.m. with NCIS: LA, which notched a 1.7 rating but 10.47 million viewers.
- NBC’s The Night Shift also stayed steady at 10 p.m. with a decent 1.4 rating and 5.8 million viewers for that time slot.
