Ratings are in from TVbyTheNumbers
NBC again topped Monday’s adults 18-49 ratings, but The Voice fell to a season low 4.4 adults 18-49, down 4% vs. a 4.6 rating last week. Smash held at a season low matching 2.2 adults 18-49 rating, the same as last week.
It its second episode, Dancing with the Stars fell 11% to a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 3.5 rating in its season premiere last week. Castle rose 4% to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 2.3 rating last week.
DWTS beats The Voice in the number of viewers, but not in the demo. I expect that to be the deal for the rest of the season. The real battle is going to be between The Voice and Idol. If Idol can hold on to its audience this week, it will beat The Voice in the demo. Hm. Castle also had more viewers than The Voice, but look at that demo! 2.4 (are those numbers even correct?). When the Voice moves to live shows, the ratings should improve.
