Monday Ratings: The Voice Comes Back To Earth, Smash Dips

Ratings are in via TVByTheNumbers:

In its second regular Monday episode NBC’s The Voice drew a 5.9 adults 18-49 rating, down 12% vs. a 6.7 adults 18-49 rating last Monday night. In its second episode, Smash had a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, down a somewhat worrisome 26% vs. a 3.8 rating in its premiere last Monday. That still easily put NBC on top the Monday adults 18-49 ratings for the second Monday in a row. Those two shows continue to give NBC their best timeslot ratings in many years (8-10p since March 5, 2007, 10-11p since April 13, 2009).

The Voice has come back down to earth this week, which is expected.  Smash took a pretty big dip. I really like the show, but I have to wonder if there’s a wider audience for a Broadway based musical drama that’s somewhat insidery.
