Monday Ratings: The Voice Drops, Smash Rises

Ratings are in from TVBytheNumbers

The rain-delayed and rescheduled Daytona 500 burned up the track and looks to have topped the ratings on Monday night (although just edging NBC in the prelims), but since the ratings below aren’t time zone adjusted, and they cover only the Eastern/Central Time zone primetime portion of the race, we’ll have to wait until the final ratings (likely later today) for the final tally.

NBC’s The Voice dropped 10% to a 5.4 adults 18-49 rating, vs. last week’s 6.0 rating. Smash rose 4% to a 2.4 adults 18-49, vs. a 2.3 rating last week.

The Voice dropped, but it ran against the Daytona 500, which was probably a factor. The Battle Rounds begin next week. The ratings should be good for at least the first couple of weeks.

A 4% rise for “Smash” is not spectacular, but good news nonetheless.
